Thrive Causemetics

Like many people cancer has touched me deeply, unfortunately.  I lost my father to cancer and since then I have tried to find ways to raise money for cancer research.  Since fitness has become a big part of my life I participate in the Lung Force Walks.  I love companies that stand for something and want to give back. 
I recently received a waterproof eyeliner from Thrive Causemetics in my Ipsy bag.  I was intrigued by the liner and wanted to learn more about the company.  A personal experience with cancer led to the creation of the company.  For every product purchased they donate one to a woman in need...specifically a woman going through cancer treatment.  How is this not the most amazing concept? And more importantly why aren't more companies adopting this?!?! 
I tried the liner and it is great!!  I will definitely be adding their products to my kit!!  Thrive Causemetics please keep doing what you are doing!!

My website is officially up and running ... Yay!!!  There has been a lot going on personally and it has made me think about inspiration and passion.  Let me pose this question....  "What inspires you?"  No matter what your passion is there has to be something that inspires you and keeps the creative juices flowing.  I find that when you are in a rut and that passion doesn't bring the same excitement it once did is when inspiration is needed!!  I like to find inspiration in the city I live in and the people and environment that make it up.  I am also inspired by those around me who are constantly grinding.  My niece does hair and is constantly putting herself out there and that inspires me to have that same grind and passion.  Sometimes you just have stop and literally smell the flowers and remember that enjoying life and what you do is the most important.  Take the time today to think about inspiration and passion and what drives you.
