Wear it on your face.
Hey my loves. So, you may or may not have noticed that I have been getting into more lifestyle-y posts, a.k.a. makeup posts, and commentaries on movies and books and things. Because I am a person who likes to analyze everything, and therefore needs the reason why for stuff, I am going to explain a little bit about the new variety on my spiritually-based blog.
Not only do I love to analyze things, and want to share my thoughts, but I also want my blog to represent who I am as a real human being. There is a lot to being a person, and there is a lot to being a modern person – AND there is a lot to being a modern, mystical person. I want my blog to make others aware of this.
Makeup & hair is my time.
I love getting ready every day. Like seriously, I love my face-wash routine, I love prepping for makeup, applying makeup, and styling my hair. It makes me feel good to transform, and make my face reflect the mood I am in. Hell, my clothes end up doing the same thing. I also love taking off my makeup each night, before hopping in the shower. I love that unwind time, where I can leave the day behind and get ready for dreamland.
I look at my appearance as a work of art. Not in a, “look at me, I’m a work of art,” braggy way. But in a, “I love you, Morgan,” way. I think it is healthy for us to make ourselves feel good. I think it is nice when we put the time into ourselves. I like feeling pleased with the way my appearance turns out. I find that on days where I feel I look good, or that my outfit is cute, I end up having a better day.
In fact, when I first started dating my boyfriend, he told me one of the sexiest things about me was my confidence. And that obviously made me way happy. What a stellar compliment, am I right? But yes. I like helping myself feel confident by dressing in a way that represents my mood, and doing my makeup and hair to match.
For better or for worse.
I also love to do my hair on days when I feel anxious or stressed. For some reason, the act of using the flat iron calms me instantly. And even if I am not upset about something, doing my hair gives me lots of time to think. I like having that time to chat with myself, and dig deeper into my thoughts.
I also really enjoy playing music or singing while getting ready in the morning. It helps me to ease into my day, and connect with my spirit. It lifts my mood and makes me feel ready to face anything. I think we all should leave the house feeling this way.
So, basically what I am trying to say, is that as a modern mystic, makeup and morning routine are part of my spiritual practice. I need that time alone with my thoughts, and that time to put into my body. I need that time at night to let the day go, and wash away any and all worry or stress.
And that is why I am going to be doing more makeup posts, and whatnot. To share that part of my soul, and to honor that type of self-love, for myself and anyone else who feels the same.

Goodnight for now.
With love and light,
