5 Reasons Why You Should Never Give Up On Your Dreams

Discipline is what you want Now and what you want MOST. 

Hello Beautiful Humans!  I’m not much of a writer these days, but ever since I came back from Silicon Valley last month and meeting up with entrepreneurs all over the world, I haven’t been the same. Here’s 5 Reasons why you should never give up on your dreams.

Like my mentor Val Garland she has been in the fashion industry and doing makeup and hair for over 30 years and has worked on famous celeberites like Kate Moss, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Lady Gaga , Giselle, her A List celebrity is endless and her portfolio is lightyear out of this world. I also have plenty more mentors I look up to because of their work ethics and incredible value to the world.

Let me build a bridge and connect another huge mentor and in the music industry  and legendary man that really inspired me to keep on going is engineer Noel Lee. When he started his cable build his business people thought he was out of his mind trying to make something that already been done, but he didn’t let that stop him. He proved the world wrong and made the whole world listened. I had a personal tour inside the MONSTERS head quarter in Silicon Valley and watched how he built his multi billion dollar cable company Monster Products from the ground up. Little fun Fact Noel and Meek Mill’s created the 24 K Headphones and founder of Beats by Dr. Dre headphones. Say hello to the Original Godfather of Sound and has worked with thousands of musicians in his career lifetime. This totally lit a fire up in me to start back on my hustle and to go even harder. The main thing about me is that no matter what, I never give up. I mean never. I’ve failed over and over and over until I win. I keep trying and  there are times when I need to break away and refocus on whats import and and what’s not a priority at the moment, but for some strange odd reason, there’s some genetic code in me that keeps me pushing day in and day out. Trust me when you’re in a room full of Monsters, you adapt and soon become a monster yourself. It was a life changer moment

1. Change Your Mindset. First you have to really believe in yourself. Don’t be afraid to let go of your ego too. Everything checked at the door. Thinking “I’m not good enough” will never cut it,  hope for the best and the best will come.

2. BET ON FAITH & Family and to keep on bettering the world. You want to be kind to our earth and that’s why on Earth day today take your time to not cause harm to our beautiful environment not only for your own but for the future of kids every where. This is essentials to living a well balance lifestyle.  Tip on beating stress and dealing with anxieties.. Clearing your head with meditation and deep slow breathes helps when I feel like it’s tough. Breathe through it, everyone is carrying their own cross but God will never give you more than you can handle.

3. PRIORITIZE and get it Organized. Like skin cleansing, Exfoliate, Tone, Moisturizer, SPF , BB Cream or CC Cream and SKIN IS ON! I call this building your shield to fight problems against anti-aging and future set backs. Activate your Power and do it for yourself!

4. Mistakes Happens. That’s alright! It takes a set back to bring you to higher like a sling shot. You don’t know it but your going to get pass it in no time. Just enjoy the moments and LEARN from it and move on. Bounce back is easy when you’re in constant motion so keep it pushing.

5. Anything can Happen! Are you willing to put yourself out of your comfort zone? I’ve met many successful entrepreneur that had that DRIVE & Passion that nothing can stop them. Do that X a MILLION! Be a diamond and shine on!

“Ambition is the path to success. Persistence is the vehicle you arrive in.” - Bill Bradley

I know this is optional but proving all the limited mind people who were dream killlers who thought it was a joke, you finally see the satisfaction of proving the nayesaers and the negative people wrong and they will talk, but now let’s welcome them and embrace that not everyone will like you, do it for the Dream Chasers. Be You and stay strong and keep dreaming!

Sending Lots of LOVE XOXO,




MAC Technique – Lipstick, Eyes, Face, & Brushes


Hi lovelies and welcome to the confessions of a makeup junkie featuring JulieMissJuicy The Makeup Artist.

It’s safe to say that I’m addicted to all beauty products and today I wanted to share with you all some fun new makeup trends and techniques for Spring/Summer 2014.

 I learned that it’s discipline that gets you from Point A to the often elusive Point B. What ever you want to do in life never give up on your career, dreams and goals. I stayed true to the gift I’ve been given, and I don’t want to have regrets in my life. I’m prepared to take risks and dedicate myself to creating new things. Discipline turns into habit; and habits are very addicting.

I would like to first give a special shout-out to my beautiful big sister Diana, despite our arguments and our differences, you are still the most important person in my life. Thank you for introducing me to the world of makeup. Happy 28th Birthday, sis!


JulieMissJuicy Recommends on Lips:


MAC Mineralize Rich Lipstick in Elegant Accent 

At $26 a pop, these lipsticks are a lot more expensive than the MAC’s regular lipstick line. And boy, are they worth it. Elegant Accent is described as a “mid-tonal warm rose cream” which is pretty on the ball in terms of description however on me, it shows up with subtle coral undertones.



Use Prep & Prime Lip Primer before applying your lipstick. It goes on cream and sets. This product has natural vanilla extract and makes them soft and smooth for an easy application.

“When shooting a lip that has a specific shape use a lip pencil and (#212 Flat Brush) to perfect the shape by coloring the pencil on a palette or on the back of your hand and picking up the color with a lip brush.” – Keri Blair, M·A·C Senior Artist, North America


MAC Snob Lipstick $16

This is definitely worth the purchase, it’s the perfect pink. It’s not too much or too little, just enough. When I am not sure of what to wear, I always go for Snob. It’s great! The colour isn’t extremely long wearing and you will need to touch up during the day, but as for the colour it’s perfect for any time of year or any occasion.


Do you want to freshen up your look this season? The fastest and easiest way to change your new look is buy adding some new eye products to your makeup bag. Check out some of the Hot trending items.

How to talk with your Eyes:


MAC Fast Response Eye Cream $31

To reduce the look of dark circles, JulieMissJuicy Recommends Fast Response eye cream ~ Is a super-charged, caffeinated cream with instant effects. De-puffs, erases the look of dark circles, firms, soothes and softens skin around the eye. Special optics act like magic to fade away lines. I’ve heard nothing but positive feedback with this eye cream product that I  had to buy a tube for my own mother to use daily. She loves it when I bring her beauty products to test and try out.

FEATURE TIP: MAC 263 Small Angle Brush is a great multifunctional tool for your professional kit. It’s easy to achieve that perfect winged eyeliner with this small angel brush and can be used to define fierce brows.

Who’s all going to watch the new Disney movie “Maleficent” performance by the powerful Angelina Jolie?!  According to the USA Today Review..

"Angelina Jolie powerfully conveys her character's menace. Though with red glossed lips and sculpted cheekbones — minus the putrid-green complexion — she's a more glamorous incarnation."

JulieMissJuicy Recommends Skin Care

 ‘Prep + Prime Skin Smoother’ Primer $30

  • A velvety skin-perfecting primer that instantly fills in fine lines and wrinkles, Prep + Prime Skin Smoother contains powerful antioxidants, evens skin tone and mattifies while softening the skin. A convenient compact makes it perfect for on-the-go moments.

MAC BRUSH CRUSH 163 Flat Top Contour Brush $35 is a new and limited edition brush designed to be used with MAC’s Pro Sculpting Creams.

This summer, avoid an overly powdered look. Try Blot Powder where needed, or with a larger brush like the #150 or the #129 brush, shake excess powder out and apply lightly in the center of the face. Set with FIX + for a softer look.





JulieMissJuicy Recommends Beauty Books

Forever Chic is more than tips and tricks on being our better physical and stylish selves—it is full of lessons on how to be a better person. The book’s strength lies in its anecdotes and wisdom on how women…can be more present and committed to living a fuller life of kindness, generosity, openness, and adventure.” ~Women’s Voices for Change

Popular Highlights from this book:

  •  Looking good is the best revenge. Age has nothing to do with it. Self-respect and pleasure have everything to do with it.
  • Wit, charm, and informed intelligence are the coins of the realm. Add elegance to the mix, and the result is an intoxicating cocktail of fascinating femininity.
  • Living a beautiful life is about style, simplicity, intelligence, and generosity.

  • A Frenchwomen knows her strengths, conceals her weaknesses, and almost never- except with her closest friend- talks about her fears, failures, or flaws. We Americans have a tendency to tell everyone everything too quickly in a relationship, perhaps in an attempt to be liked. And sometimes we come to regret.
  • “The smallest effort has major rewards, everything from setting a dining table with care- every day- to getting up, getting dressed, and getting out there to see what adventures the new day holds.”
  • They spend serious money on their hair, which they consider an essential investment – thus no bad- hair days, one fewer concern. No accessory or item of clothing goes back into the closet with a stain, a button missing, wrinkles. Details, details, details, Discipline, discipline, discipline.

So now we are coming to an end on my MAC Technique notes.. I hope you utilize and learn some new tips and tricks.

My goal is to not make money,  but to help as many people as I can with my skills and knowledge.
