I adore this… I am frequently posting on my Instagram (@Mandelicious - which is also my twitter handle) the quote from Voltaire that says “I choose to be happy because it’s good for my health,” because I truly believe that happiness is a choice. We can’t pick what happens to us in our lives, but we are definitely in control of how we react. If we get mad because of someone else’s actions, we are giving them power over our emotions. But I know it is so much easier said than done. That’s part of why I love this… We have to learn to take over control. I am working on stopping to think before I let my emotions react to something. Is it even worth getting upset over? Does the person who offended me deserve control over my emotions or how awesome my day is? Usually, decidedly not. So now I am trying to not give them that ability. It’s not easy, but I know it will be worth it! xoxo, Mandie

I love this song and video so much. I just want to dance and sway and feel sexy and empowered every time I hear it. What song does that for you?

Since I’m sitting in the hair chair, I have time to post a little collage from the wedding last night! I had such a blast dancing with Tommy!

California, I’m going to be in you soon… And I am looking for potential collaborations. I have a few shoots set up, but my main desire is a swimsuit designer or wardrobe stylist. If you know anyone, please tag them? Open to work with amazing makeup artists (as a model), models (as a makeup artist), and photographers (as either or both)!
