Fenty Saves the Day

I barely had any sleep last night because:

(a) I was in quite a lot of pain. Epilepsy SUCKS.

(b) I went to bed über late watching a film about a beautiful black lady who ends up dating a psycho with beautiful eyes (The Perfect Guy, 2015), and then I had to wake up über early to buy Bon Iver tickets (so worth it! I can’t believe I’m finally going to see Bon Iver 😍😍😍😍), then go to an African Caribbean Ancestry talk. 

Therefore I looked awful, and decided that I needed to wear makeup. Bring out the Fenty! 


Just a little bit of foundation and eyeliner (the eyeliner isn’t Fenty, it’s Rimmel).

This is the first time I’ve actually worn the makeup since buying it and I bought a whole new brush and sponge set, especially for the occasion. I’m not even a girly girl, but this was pretty fucking exciting. Again, applying the foundation was an incredible moment; as you can see from my first picture, I haven’t applied a lot as you can still see some of my blemishes (I was only going to a talk, I just wanted to add some colour to my face – I looked like a zombie before!), however the coverage is perfect and just enough to make me look fresh and youthful. 

I can’t wait to use it all properly! I’m going to look like a queen!

My body remains on the sidelines watching, while my mind roams around the room, taking in the world around her. I am a wallflower. There could be two reasons for this: It could be due to me being an introvert or just that I am a Cancerian! I’m Cece Alexandra and I am so honoured that you’ve been led to delve into my thoughts here in this blog! I would describe myself as a Wallflower which is why I use words to express my deepest – and sometimes darkest - thoughts. Words have always been my strongest method of expressing myself. Growing up I always wanted to be a writer, however life and circumstances chipped away at my confidence until there was nothing left. Without words, I could no longer express myself. I am also Epileptic. Since being diagnosed, I have realised that my deepest fear is the day I am finally on my deathbed, haunted by the overwhelming regret that I never achieved my God-given potential. This realisation forced me to take a step of faith and put myself out there. Yes it makes me vulnerable, however within the process I not only want to be an inspiration to myself; I want to be an inspiration to other women – to be whatever you want to be. Embrace the fear and doubt and utilise that as the fuel you need to push through! Life is for living to the fullest. Life is for loving, for living true to yourself and to the people around you. Life however, can also be crippling, dark and overwhelming. But you are not alone. This thought alone is what will help you get up from the ground.
