Crying and Crystals

I’ve always been interested in crystals and stones because, well, they’re beautiful and I’m a geology nut, but also because of their natural healing properties for living things. If you haven’t read it yet, I recently had my first selenite wand experience and WOW. I couldn’t have made it up if I tried.

So under the advice and guidance of my local wizard (lol no just a healer) I’ve been healing with chakra stones and some others.

Here’s my arsenal:

Chakras: 

  • Root – Red Jasper
  • Sacral – Carnelian
  • Solar Plexus – Citrine
  • Heart – Adventurine
  • Throat – Sodalite
  • Third Eye – Amethyst
  • Crown – Clear Quartz

Others: 

  • Tree Agate
  • Black Tourmaline
  • Angelite
  • Selenite

Something “weird” that happens to me when I use my crystals for healing (rather than just holding on to them) is that I cry. Not sad tears, not angry tears, but happy, relieved tears. I called my guy and he said it’s totally normal, it’s just the kind of person I am. (I believe he was referring to me being highly sensitive but I’m not sure). Tears just come out, unforced, which is weird for me, and my spirit is lifted and happy. I rarely ever describe myself as happy or cry, which now that I think about it seems a little contradicting. It’s almost addicting to feel this good. I’m glad it’s stones and crystals rather than meth lol.

There’s absolutely no doubt in my mind that we are connected to the earth, so of course we are connected to crystals and stones. Shit, did you know ice is a mineral? Geologists argue about it, but it has all 5 of the characteristics that make up a mineral. And what are we made of? WATER. Like, come on. I don’t see how some people refuse to connect the dots and take the information laid out in front of them.

My First “Treat Yo Self” + Makeup Reviews! 

Hey friends,

Since I recently received my first paycheck, I decided to spoil myself a little because, well, I deserve it! And so do you- so here’s a little inspiration based off of what I did!

First stop: Dillard’s MAC counter


I bought:

MAC satin lipstick in the color “Spirit” | $17

 

MAC lip-liner in the color “Spice” | $16.50

 

MAC studio fix fluid foundation in the color “NC15” | $27

 

Reviews:

The reddish brown colors of Spirit and Spice go really well together! There is little color difference between them, so there are no harsh lines. This lipstick/lip-liner duo brings out my brown eyes and yellow undertones. The only bad thing is, they don’t stay on long. If you put it on before you eat you can forget about having it on the rest of the day.

  
The studio fix fluid foundation, “NC15”, gives very good coverage! I started breaking out on my forehead recently, but this foundation made them vanish. This is my second time buying, and not my last!

Second stop: Ulta

I bought:

Beverly Hills Perfect Brow Pencil by Anastasia in the color “Medium Brown” | On sale for $12, originally $23

Stay Matte pressed powder by Rimmel London in the color “Sandstorm” | On sale for $4, originally $5

Instant Bronze Self Tanning Lotion by Australian Gold | On sale for $4, originally $8

The eyebrow pencil is good; I’m not sure if I would buy it again or not, but it looks more natural than my current eyebrow kit. I have bought Stay Matte several times now, so of course I love it. It really does have a matte appearance when applied and is relatively inexpensive compared to other matte powders. The self tanner I bought looks great on me! It gets streaky on my hands and feet, but that’s because those are common problem areas for self tanning. I will probably buy it again because I got a lot of product for a little amount of money, and it looks good on my body.

Happy Shopping!
