Strong Beautiful Mother: The story behind the t-shirt

Moms are superheros.  They create life.  They raise children.  They are intelligent, strong and beautiful. That alone is enough to create an empowering shirt.  But it goes deeper than that.  Moms come in all forms and support systems.  Being a positive example to a child is an amazing gift that should be celebrated every day of the year.

Recently I have been communicating with Maggie’s Place.  I love what this organization does for our community.  Giving a home to women with children that need a helping hand to get back on their feet.  I created the Strong Beautiful Mother shirt from this inspiration, where $5 from each shirt is donated back to this incredible women’s charity.

I am so grateful that my sister and I were shown the support and love from a strong Mom. Our rock, our “keep everything together” supermom taught us about strength, beauty and living a life filled with JOY.  We learned to laugh until we cry.  We learned to cry, really cry, and that its OK just the same.  I am so grateful for this life where my Mom was MY MOM.

Celebrate the Moms in your life.  EVERY DAY. Soak up any amount of time you have with them.  Say thank you and I love you.  Take nothing for granted.

Inspire: The story behind the t-shirt

Inspiration:  It’s all around us if we are open to seeing it.  As inspiration comes from the world around us, it’s also within us.  Being inspired about who we are, what we have done and being better.

The inspire shirt encompasses all of these aspects.  Inspire yourself.  Inspire others around you.

I am inspired by women who own who they are and a community of creative minds that support each other.  I live for the days of simple joys that overflow into creative inspiration.  Small things can turn into BIG things.

I created the INSPIRE shirt to remind us that we have inspiration: in us and around us.  Find what lights you up!  Seek out new experiences and soak up the journey.  Live an inspired life.

EMBRACE EMPOWER: The story behind the t-shirt

Embrace Empower.  Heavy words on their own, powerful together.

Embrace who you are: The amazing, the good and the imperfections. Embrace the less than perfect life. Embrace the JOY of life. Embrace GRATITUDE.

Accepting who you are will EMPOWER yourself to push forward, to overcome.  It may just INSPIRE others to feel empowered themselves and spread positive energy.

I created the Embrace Empower shirt from my own embracing of who I am.  It’s been a journey, and it’s never going to be completed. I am continuing to be the best me and learn to let go of the things that no longer serve me.  I embraced who I am, and it was empowering!  I hope this shirt can be a reminder for you to do the same.

STRONG BEAUTIFUL WOMAN: The story behind the t-shirt

I have shared my inspiration for creating the Strong Beautiful Woman shirt before, but being the first shirt in the line and the forerunner of spreading the Strong Beautiful Woman’s Movement, it bears repeating at a little deeper level.

After doing makeup on many women over the years, I have been so honored and grateful to be a part of special days, events and moments.  Women are powerhouses.  It’s amazing all that we accomplish even on the days when we feel like we have no motivation or lack self-confidence.   Imagine all we could do if we KNEW we were POWERHOUSES!

I know these feelings because I am that woman.  I suffered, and am recovering, as a self-critic with depression and anxiety.  So when women are hesitant for me to see them without makeup or are self-conscious of imperfections, I feel their pain.  Deeply.  So much more than I could express.  I often leave makeup jobs and spend my drive home wondering if I could have done or said more to help that women feel even more AMAZING!

I am inspired by these women.  The Strong Beautiful Woman shirt was not created to be boastful, or conceded.  It was created to INSPIRE and spread a positive message.

I have been told before by a woman that she “wouldn’t wear that shirt because I don’t feel worthy of the message.”  I was floored.  I never wanted someone to feel they COULD NOT wear this shirt because they were not “up to par” to the message.  I replied that this shirt is not about that.  I said, “You put on that shirt and OWN IT! Fake it until you make it. You will come around. You already ARE that women.  It’s time for you to realize it.”

Some days when I wear my shirt I don’t feel like I am strong. Or beautiful.  I call them OVERCOMPENSATION days.  The days where you need a pick me up or a boost.  The days where putting on the shirt makes you walk a little taller and remind yourself that you ARE Strong, Beautiful and Feminine.  You are SO MUCH MORE than you even know you can be!

T-shirt Tuesday! Luana Joya Lucia

Munkee_0808140128_resized

Luana was one of the first people I did makeup on when I moved to Arizona, and I have since done her makeup for several events and photo shoots.  Not to mention Luana gives phenomenal massages and energy treatments that leave you feeling lighter and more focused. It was wonderful to do her makeup for this Strong Beautiful Woman series!

Take a moment for yourself and soak up the GOOD, HEALING energies from Luana.  Santi Sacred

 

A little about Luana:

Why is this your favorite t-shirt?: The animal print on this shirt reminds me that I am never to be tamed! Why would I want to be boxed in, shackled and chained, only to look from the inside out without freedom to fully explore, fully radiate, and allow my soul to illuminate its natural light .. the wild, wonderful, untamed woman which is my very being, my essence, is likened to the wild, wonderful, tigress that we see in the raw nature that I value, respect, adore and practice in mirroring daily.

Tell me a little about yourself: My name is Luana Joya Lucia. I am a Healing Arts Professional of ‘Santi Sacred Healing Arts’ practicing peace and calm through breath, mentality, heart and soul, and living in the ‘right this very second’ way of positive thought 🙂 Practice, Practice, Practice! I was born in Colorado and miss the coolness, easy breezy, clouds softly hanging from the sky. I am the mother of 3 grown men; one of whom has transitioned to ‘the other side’. My 2 other sons have gifted me with 3 amazing grandchildren with whom I enjoy everyday within my heart and visit as much as is allowed.

I am currently in the midst of coining a massage modality called ‘Etherealiti Energy Healing’, teaching and sharing through videos and perhaps a book. I came across an amazing skin care line called “Beautify” which I include in most of my massage sessions as a medium for the ‘Santi’ ( meaning peace ) face massage. I am revving myself up to move to a cooler climate within the next year or so with my puppy Aja ( meaning Forest Goddess ) and 12 feline pets.

Like YOU, I am a Strong Beautiful Woman!

T-shirt Tuesday kickoff! Stephanie

IMG_20160202_153434

Happy #TshirtTuesday! I am so excited to kickoff a series I have been working hard on!  The idea is to showcase strong, beautiful women with the common thread of all having a favorite t-shirt.
When I started this project I had no idea the impact it would have on me.  These women are inspirational, which I knew, but their honesty and insight has forever changed my life. We all have our own stories and I look forward to sharing these in the coming weeks.

About Me:
I love this t-shirt because it represents pushing yourself, being your own cheerleader and being optimistic. Inspired by @rachelplatten song “Fight Song”, it reminds to fight for what I want and to believe.

I have been doing makeup for over 12 years and love it! The style of makeup I do is “kicked up natural”- beautiful, enhancing features.

Holyfield Wedding

When my friends get married and ask me to be a small part of their big day, I am so grateful and excited to do makeup!  Melanie and I were former coworkers, and kept in touch.  I loved that I was asked months in advance to do the makeup for both the beautiful bride and her mom!

The look for both women was a natural, with enough for pictures, look.  Eye shapes and contours were focused on without feeling overdone.
