Treat Yo'self

This week was one of those weeks that was flat out brutal. I noticed that it wasn’t just a rough week for me, but also for the majority of the people that I have talked to (isn’t it weird how the universe seems to "challenge" everyone all at once?) When it’s one of those weeks, I find it really important to take a step back and remember to take care of myself. Think about it – it’s February, Valentine’s Day just happened; we’re finally settling down from the holidays; we’re in this winter “blah.” I needed some cheering up and some me time. I don't see nothin' wrong with a little bit of self care. For me, this involved some retail therapy, face masks, wine, organization, and a book.
I started off with a makeup haul (no surprise there): Kat Von D’s Metal Matte and Alchemy palettes, Kylie Cosmetics’ Valentine's Diary palette, and Urban Decay’s Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner in Intergalactic (don’t judge, you know you’ve done worse damage). I also needed a way to organize all my non de-pottable makeup, so I treated myself to a spinning makeup organizer. When I got back to my new apartment with my new toys, I emptied my bags, poured myself a glass of wine, put on a charcoal face mask (unfortunately stress causes my face to breakout, and I’m not about that life), and got to organizing. Organizing is something that makes me feel like I have more control in my life…plus who doesn't like pleasing aesthetics?!
I organized all of my lipsticks by finish and color, and I found homes for my mascaras, eyeliners, primers, and brushes. I kept reminding myself that this was “me time.” So I put my phone out of sight and out of mind. I took time to enjoy my glass of wine. I opened up a book that I have been reading since March (2016, mind you), A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle, and like the book says to do, I grounded myself. I took time to feel my feet on the ground. I reflected on things that I have accomplished and things that I have yet to do. Most importantly, I realized that it’s okay to take a step back and take a breather. It’s okay to give yourself a pat on the back and be proud of yourself. It’s okay to splurge sometimes and say “hey, I deserve this.” As Tom and Donna from Parks and Recreation once said, “Treat yo-self.”
xo,
Dev

    Just heard about the scandal. It is so disrespectful to call out customers the way they did. People aren’t always going to like new products & especially the prices of some products, but those comments should always be taken into consideration instead of bashing them. I will also no longer support this company.

    I think the comments were terrible and the person making them doesn’t need to be dealing with customers -HELLO. I’m a Plus, Size Woman, I’ve bought your products many times and think they are great. I need a job, when you decide you want a cool fat chick to take her place that will love, respect AND be excited to interact with customers let me know.

    Im happy you have left these comments up instead of deleting them. Facing the fire and moving on! However, I don’t think I will buy anything else from this company. Hopefully you will continue to let customers post their concerns, comments, hate, praise etc…

    Even after the dilema, I feel we all make mistakes. And as long as we learn from them its all good. I just received my first Extra Large Z Palette(golden grain) and it’s perfect!!!! Can’t beat the quality. .

    I am a long time customer, purchasing your products from several retailers over the years. I follow a few beauty bloggers on Instagram and was so disappointed to see how the person running your Instagram account treated people on the trendmood post. Though many of those people that were insulted may never have purchased your depotting device, likely many have at least one z-palette in their collection. Above being customers, they are people. Nobody deserves to be called names because they suggested using a stove top, oven or flat iron in place of your device. Not only is it not good business practice, it is plain wrong.
