Getting Hair Styled With L’OREAL Paris

It’s always a concert or production for me when I’m getting ready. Plus, I just like to entertain myself. I’m a hair flip girl, y’all know how I do 😂 so I need L’Oreal Paris to hold me down. And Queen Janet Jackson would be so proud 🤙🏾🌸🌺

Do y’all remember I use to be a L’Oreal Pro Makeup Artist so I always used L’Oreal hair products. Elnett was my go to hairspray. OMG, the scent, it should be a candle 😂

My Auto Immune Is Better When Grounding And Earthing

Lately, I been spending a lot of time grounding on the beach. At least 3 times a week walking barefoot in the sand. I always noticed how well I felt when I was on the beach. In the morning my body is like the tin man, I’m so stiff and achy that it takes some time for my body to warm up. But 15 mins in on the beach, I find my body starts to feel good, I’m actually running around. No pain, no discomfort of any sort not even wheezing. On my beach days, I also noticed at night that my husband doesn’t need to tap my back. The inflammation in my back and on my wrist seem to go down and I sleep all night. The next morning, I wake up early and feel well rested. I’m seeing a pattern of this and decided to do some research.

When you have auto immune diseases like myself, I have 4 of them, you will understand when I say we’re always looking for ways to heal our bodies. In what I found I was experiencing is called Grounding and I went in hard wanting to know everything about it.

Grounding is also called earthing, and it’s a therapeutic technique that involves you doing activities that electrically reconnect you to the earth. Activities like walking barefoot, being in water, laying on the ground, and using grounding equipment. I haven’t purchased any because of my beach access here in Hawaii.

The great thing about Grounding is it’s free! You don’t have to order it online you don’t have to go to a luxe spa to receive this service. You can just walk out your door to the mailbox barefoot. You can go in your yard and just step on the grass. If you live near a beach you can go in walk around. It’s great for babies and kids. Get them out of those hard shoes and let their little feet run around free. Watch how relax they will be when they go inside. Definitely helps with crying. Give your body 30 mins barefoot and watch how well you feel. If you want to do it longer definitely go for it.

I just wanted to share this information because I found so much relief from it. If you’re reading this please share it with someone who’s dealing with any auto immune diseases, chronic pains and any other stress or anxiety issues. I think I want to do my sessions with my clients on the beach to help them as we go deep in conversations. This technique can help calm them.

Thanks for stopping by, Namaste 🙏🏾

We Had A Time Last Night

We had a time last night. Living in Hawaii and by the beach it’s always a party down there for any holiday. I enjoy being barefoot grounding in the sand instead of in fabulous painful 3 inch heels. What made this evening so much fun was that nothing was planned. Hubby and I was just excited about the evening and bringing in the new year together. Hubby got home around 6pm and I got off at 9pm. We managed to make it down to the beach around 10:30pm.

And here’s how I brought in the new year.

Almost Time
Countdown to 2023!
Africa goes for a swim
In the Oscar’s goes too

Today It’s Juneteenth 2022

All black ancestors are my role models. I cannot Thank You enough for everything that you went through to allow me to be free. I hope I have not let any of you down. I will continue to move with dignity so you can be proud.

Propagated My Aloe Vera

This Aloe Vera plant I propagated last year. Look at my baby now, she so big! I let it get a lot of natural light, it’s placed at my front door. Do not over water. I give it a good watering 2-3 times a month. More if it’s been very hot by the front door. Don’t make a big fuss over it. 🪴🪴🪴🪴🪴

I Want To Heal Auto Immune Warriors

I learned how to heal myself better than any doctors or any meds that I have taken since diagnosed. I’m healing myself so I can help heal other Auto Immune Warriors. I want to teach others how they can have a life after being diagnosed. 🙏🏾💜💚🦋

I’m What Lupus Looks Like

I may be chronically ill
but I’m also chronically
fabulous!…that’s my tag line!

I know my makeup is pretty but if you look in my eyes you know that I’m not having a good day.
This is how you know I’m having a bad Lupus flare, when my eyes look like this says Brandy Gomez-Duplessis

If you’re a friend or an associate of mine you know that Lupus is one of the 4 autoimmune diseases I battle. If you been around me you know I am a pro at hiding my daily battle with wearing makeup, having big hair, and all my extraness 😂😂 only someone who’s very observant knows the truth when they look at my eyes. No matter how fabulous I dress it up I can’t hide my 👀.

May is Lupus Awareness Month

May is Lupus Awareness Month. It’s the month that I usually do a lot of interviews, speaking, collaborating with organizations, posting and wearing my purple lipstick “Queen B” that I created for us Lupus Warriors with my makeup line Entitled Beauty Cosmetics

Queen B
All Nighter Liquid Lipstick

There is one special person that will always have a special place in my heart in that’s Lauren Kimberly Burnham she attend a Lupus Walk with me because she didn’t want me to be alone. I will never forget that special offer. 💜💜

If you noticed I haven’t been on social media lately because I been on bed rest. Whenever I’m gone for to many days know I’m suffering. But I will be back more fabulous then ever, don’t worry.

If you have any family members or friends with ANY autoimmune diseases be patient with them. If at the last minute they cancel, if they can’t travel, if they don’t accept an invite, don’t take it personal. We only have energy to do just a little. In when we push ourselves we pay the price…unless you’re our caretaker it’s a lot. Sending 💜 to all of my Lupus & Autoimmune Warriors out there. This month share your story, let’s stop hiding. The medical field needs to know they can’t keep pushing us to the side, we’re important! If you wear purple this month please tag me so I’ll know that you’re here for me. 💜
🤙🏾🌸🌺
