This may seem like a candid photo, but this is actually my cousin telling me to take off my top and me telling her no! 😆 Originally I had planned for a bikini top photo on the beach, but when the time came around, I became extremely shy and self conscious to the point where I almost didn’t even take photos at all. (It was no longer just me on timer mode 😅) “You’ll regret it if you don’t!” So about 5 quick snaps, and voila. 🤷🏻♀️ Sometimes ...well, all the time, you gotta have that one friend who gives you the push you need to remind you, you’s a bad B. 🤣 Thank you @love_pajmim
for always being my #1
fan when I’m being my own worst critic. 💛
Would you think I had a hard time putting this #ootd
together? A little backstory for you guys, I kept leaning towards going back to workout clothes because I couldn’t find anything that fits or looks right altogether. (Currently going through a fashion change—-between a teenage boy and a grown woman💀) After taking this photo, I looked at it for hours and went back and forth on whether or not to post it. I even asked friends about it and thought about editing it to make “things” appear smaller. (Never would I’ve thought I’d ever have to say that.) but as one of my friends said, “We all post things we shouldn’t,” 🤣 so this is petty. LOL. With the help of dem jeans, and putting in some work, along with mastering dat pop, I’ll take it and own it. It’s not what you wear that matters, it’s how you wear it and how comfortable you are in your own skin. Our bodies are always changing, but love your body through every phase and choose to change it at your own call because you love it, not because you hate it. And this photo? Heck, I was in a beautiful neighborhood, and it just so happened to be a beautiful day out in what we all thought would be a day full of showers and if you know me, I’ll never miss a chance at a good photo opp. 💃🏻I guess I went through all those emotions and fighting with my thoughts just to get a good caption for y’all. 😅 Anyways, thanks for the photo, mom! #shengmiishirley #selflove
Happiness comes from within. Like you, I’m fighting my own battles and some days are harder than others as well, but dealing with them has gotten easier as I stopped wearing my emotions on my sleeve and instead redirected my energy towards what adds to my self awareness. Choose to be the light and a reminder to others that true happiness and kindness still exists in humanity. #shengmiishirley
It only took me 2 years, but here I am! 😋
I hope you find someone who speaks your language so you won’t have to spend a lifetime translating your spirit.
Don't tell me the sky's the limit when there's footprints on the moon.
So I may have missed a few buttons. 🙄Turned out stinkin cute! 🤗 #dressyoself
Hi dark hair. Hi four eyes. Hi Snapchat. Hi Instagram. Hi free Latte. 👻 MIA and now I is back 😈
About a 'decade' ago 🤣 I helped my sister with her hair for some event with her boyfriend. Little did I know I'd be doing her hair and makeup for their big day! Hepola ever after! ❤️
Hepola Ever After. Congratulations, sister! ❤️🎉
💦Review on 'Not Your Mother's Dry Shampoo.' Thank you, @Influenster
for the complimentary products in this month's #SplashVoxBox
As you can tell by now and in my previous posts, I am wearing a synthetic wig! This dry shampoo provided instant results in taking away the shine to look more natural and added volume instantly. One thing I will say is that the product alone does not fight humidity. It was 87 degrees during this time and my wig was falling flat while my face was meeeeelting! Idk how I managed! 😩
What dry shampoo works for you?
Truth is, she doesn't belong to anybody. She's off in her own world.. #shengmiishirley
Double tap for ❤️, not for 🔊 because I still suck. 😀 New appreciation for life and a new found love.
Be sure of yourself, your emotions and your needs. Fall in love with yourself so deeply that you'd do anything to keep yourself happy.
I never met you, but I know you're out there
If I cross the oceans, would you be there?
A stranger's eyes that somehow look familiar
I know that when it's you, I'll remember
So wait for me; I swear I'll find you #Audien #ladyantebellum
I'm feeling lucky!! 🃏🃏♦️♥️♣️♠️ ..jk 😅
Shut your mind off and let your heart breathe 🎶 #coachellamakeup

Coachella Vibes ..I'm there in spirit 😀
It's not who you think your are that holds you back, it's who you think you're not.
How exactly do you get ahead? First, get started. Embrace who you are. Stop comparing yourself and your work to others, celebrate everyone's successes as you would your own, and build connections and new friendships with people who will give you constructive advice and support. There are special seeds planted within your heart, but they will not grow in a toxic environment.
FACE YOURSELF. Many times, people complain about external things and the people around them when the real problem lies within. You want to make significant changes to your life, then you must understand yourself more and forgive to break free from your shackles.
Embrace everything that happens along your path; both good and bad. Your suffering needs to be respected to be able to grow. Don’t try to ignore the hurt, because the hurt is real. It's proof that you are aware. Instead, let the hurt prove there is hope through your healing. Let the hurt bring you to love, and not to hate.
Last, but not least. Never seek validation and never apologize for wanting to be great and wanting to live. -ShengmiiShirley #beauty #inspiration #transformation #quotes #wisdom #motivation #wordsofwisdom #selfphoto #photooftheday #iphone #shengmiishirley #dvestore #divaringlight
Check out the technique! I decided to go with a smooth and sultry look although you can play it down with this palette as well. To create a graphic line on my lids, I used an eyeliner brush with the shade 'blackened black clay' to get a precise smoky finish to my liner. For the lids, I used a textured stamp technique with the shade 'metalik rust' in which I used my fingertip to apply in tapping motion onto my lids to create a smoked veil. And lastly to finish it off, I used a blending brush to apply the Air-light setting powder to keep everything in place for prolong wear. --I love it because it didn't pick up any pigment from the shadows!
