MOTD: Black Smokey Eyes and Soft Pink Lips

Currently listening to DJ Khaled, Beyonce and Jay z – Shinning 

Black smokey eyes and pink lips

OK! No jokes I’m literally shinning guys!! Damn! I can’t believe I made that Highlighter, I think I’m gonna call it UzzyMami GlowUp. I’ve been kinda worried lately about the growth of my blog and I did a lot of thinking yesterday. That was went it hit me that I was actually jealous of some people’s progress! As humans there’s every tendency for us to get envious when we see our mates progressing and we’re still at the same spot. 

While I was thinking I began to speak to myself and affirm my efforts and works. I was at my niece’s school couple of days ago and a lady kept complaining that her children still use diapers while their mates have stopped and that’s when I realized I was comparing myself with others. When you accept that you’re your own competition only then will you begin to advance. I’m learning to be my own competition, comparing my present with my past and not someon else. When you approach your goals this way you begin to see progress, self growth and maturity. 

Back to today’s look, I’m rocking a black smokey eye with bold lashes and soft pink lips.

    1. Your words are really inspiring. It’s only human for us to compare ourselves with others, worried if we are doing well and if our efforts are being acknowledged. I remind myself everyday that attaining success is process of growth, it doesn’t just happen overnight, we just have to keep working hard.
      Love your look, uzzy you are literally shinning!

    3. Beautiful look, those lashes are gorgeous.
      That glow is what I call a blinding glow.
      Love what you said about learning to be your own competition, because we are not on a race with anyone.
      We just have to be ourselves and do our own thing.
