Is it Al or Maybe Just Din... or Aladdin?

The other day, I posted a blog with a flashback to the 90s (Don't remember it? Click here!). As a child in the 90s, I had my love for Disney, and what child didn't? Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, Pocahontas... Aladdin. Ah, those were good times.

The awestruck moments of wonder and intrigue you had as an innocent child watching as our beloved heroes and heroines conquer their battles and live happily ever after.  The music... Oh the music. Disney has always done music very well.

"I can show you the world ... dazzling, shimmering splendor..." I bet you know how the rest of that song goes.

If you are new to my blog, you may not know that I have a beauty channel on YouTube where I create various types of beauty videos and transformations. Normally, I try not to do the same thing over and over again, but I have been very keen on creating transformation videos. For Halloween, I created a transformation where I become the genie version of Jafar, which has been a fairly popular video for myself. In one of the comments, I got a request for me to do Aladdin next... and that's what I did recently. I transformed myself into a man...

For your viewing pleasure, here they are together:




I have to say - I do not make a pretty man. Even though this blog is all about the pretty things in life and appreciating them for what they are, I will not hesitate to say how happy I am to be a woman - this look suits me best. ;-)

Let me know what you think of these videos! Is there anything you'd like to see? If so, hop on over to my YouTube channel here and click that little subscribe button for more.

What is your most favorite Disney character? Is it Belle with her beauty and wit, or Ariel with her quirky independence? Perhaps, you like Woody and Buzz, or Jack and Gus from Cinderella. Tell me who it is in the comments below.

Happily ever after,

I Didn't Know What to Say

This world is full of both wonderful and heartbreaking circumstances that wear us down daily. As a nation, we are mourning another tragedy where violence has torn apart communities and families - and for what purpose? We just don't know.
I didn't write on this yesterday because I didn't know what to say. I've read that it's the deadliest mass shooting in American history. I don't know what's more sad to me: that this deplorable act is something that I feel numb towards given the increasing numbers of shootings and tragedies we are seeing nationally, or the act itself: where some random person unbeknownst to even his own family made a decision that forever altered the lives of millions of people. 
The biggest encouragement and consolation I can try to provide is to continue to shine the light into the darkest corners of the world. Whether you emit joy and love, peace or kindness, these are a few ways to impact the world in a positive way that anybody can gi…

Compassion

Months ago, I filmed a video about compassion and empathy. When I downloaded it to my computer, I didn't have the time or the drive to edit and upload it... until today. I re-watched the full 11:37 video and realized that my message was very clear and that it applies just as much to today as it did when I originally filmed it in November. 
Compassion. It's something that many people lack - not on purpose, but out of convenience. Out of carelessness. Without a thought. People aren't bad because of it, rather unaware and lacking mindfulness of who is around them and how they may be feeling.
I wanted to share this video as a reminder for people to view other people as humans - as people just like themselves. To have empathy and compassion because you just do not know what another person is going through.


Lovingly yours,
Em

A Spring in My Steps

For those of you who have followed me for some time, you must know by now that one of my favorite spots here in Seattle is Green Lake. There's something so serene in walking the almost-three mile path around the lake - all while never even leaving the city. It's a short drive away and I find myself longing for a visit when I think only of its lush natural scenery and everything you could want in a park.
I went to Green Lake earlier in the day than normal and spotted these lovely little crocuses, reaching their aubergine-veined petals through the soil. I see them every year scattered about the city, but something about how they always reach for the sky makes them so relatable. 
Starting my walk, I noticed the eerie sky and how white it was with overcast - there were crows cawing and screeching from all over, fields and branches full of birds. My assumption is that after all the earthworms were about and crows were swarming to get a shot at their evening meal. 
Concluding my wa…
