Happy-New-Year-from-Jagabeauty-2016

Happy New Year Friends! Wow! 2016!

WE MADE IT! WE ARE STILL STANDING! WE ARE ALIVE!

Brad Paisley wrote, “Tomorrow, is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one.” Imagine this- today, you are holding in your hands a fresh new book, blank pages- What are you going to write?

2015 may not have been fantastic year or it might even have been worse but we’ve been given a second chance to make it right, to go after our dreams, our passion, to look fear in the eyes and say , “this year you aren’t going to get me”!

We are going to damn fear and take risks, hold on to hope, keep the faith, pray hard, praise wildly, pursue that dream that  you’ve had for 10 years, dance freely, laugh easily, forgive more, love passionately – just- LIVE- It’s really going to be a good year!

Alright- START WRITING!

God bless you and give you the strength to vivaciously go for it. He’ll keep you and protect all through 2016.

Lots of Love,

Ngozy Atta aka Queen Jaga 

#mondaymotivation | Inspiring quotes on Passion

Monday-Motivation_Jagabeauty-Studio

Howard Thurman said, “Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

There is nothing as depressing as being stuck in doing something you don’t love, that bores you or doesn’t give you joy. Wondering what your ‘what is’? Your purpose? Your life’s goal?

Ask yourself, ‘What keeps me up at night’? ‘What activity do I partake in that makes my heart beat so fast with excitement’? <<– Have you figured it out? That my friend, might just be your ‘WHAT’!

Write it down, research, pray and I promise you the Holy Spirit will help you!

Passion  is the driving force behind success and happiness that allows us live better lives. We have to keep going, keep moving-> move with vigor, passion, and fixed determination to achieve our goals. Terry Orlick quotes, “The heart of human excellence often begins to beat when you discover a pursuit that absorbs you, frees you, challenges you, or gives you a sense of meaning, joy, or passion.”  

Have a PURPOSEFUL week!

#wcw- Bobbi Brown of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics

Reading about Bobbi Brown today has put fire in my bones- the good kind of fire! Fire that reminds me that, If I think it, believe it, work hard at it then certainly I can Make It Happen!

About our Woman Crush:

Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, today, is the no. 1 makeup artist brand founded by a woman.

Bobbi Brown (born April 14, 1957) is an American professional makeup artist and the founder and CCO of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics.

Her startup story?! It all started with a simple idea – natural looking makeup and a lipstick that looked like lips, a desire to feel comfortable in her own skin. More than twenty years after the debut of her brand, Bobbi continues to define the way women wear makeup and the way they see themselves. In 2010, inspired by her belief that “all women are pretty without makeup, but with the right makeup can be pretty powerful”, Bobbi introduced Pretty Powerful, an ad campaign featuring real women from all walks of life. In 2013, Bobbi launched the Pretty Powerful Campaign for Women & Girls, a global initiative dedicated to funding non-profit organizations that strive to empower women and girls through education.

Quotes by Bobbi Brown:

On Business | I never learned management. I never went to business school. I’m an artist. I happened to have really clear ideas of what I thought my business should be.

Quote-on-Business_Bobbi-Brown_Jagabeauty

On ‘Pretty Powerful Campaign’ – “I believe that all women are pretty without makeup- but with the right makeup can be pretty powerful.”

Beauty Isn’t Just About Makeup.

“I believe that beauty comes in all ages, colors, shapes and sizes. It’s not about looking like someone else or trying to be someone you’re not. It’s about figuring out what works for you. Being Pretty Powerful is much bigger than beauty. It’s about confidence and the path you take to achieve it.” -Bobbi Brown, makeup artist and entrepreneur, as written on Stylelist

#BreastCancerAwareness | Courage, Hope And Inner Strength for Cancer Patients, Survivors, and Loved Ones

Jagabeauty_Breast-Cancer-Awarenes-Month_October

October was ‪‎Breast Cancer Awareness month.

Many of us forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same. Do breast self-exams, and schedule your clinical breast exams and mammograms. And if you know anyone or your loved one has been diagnosed with breast cancer, get a better understanding about the illness so that you’ll know how to be there for your loved ones.

You are stronger than you imagine. Trust me I’ve learnt that this past week. But I thank God for His strength when I was weak and for ‪my support systems -my dearest Hubz and my wonderful family. Indeed you are loved more than you imagine.

Thank you Jumai Shaba for nominating me for this cause, Emmanuel Oyeleke for this timeless shot. ‪

To you who have lost a loved one to cancer, who has just found a lump on her breast, “You are stronger than you imagine and you are loved more than you know.”

Look deeply into your soul. You have enough grace and strength to overcome any struggle.” -Lailah Gifty Akita, Pearls of Wisdom: Great mind

Fear not, for He is with you;  be not dismayed, for He is your God; He will strengthen you, He will help you,  He will uphold you with His righteous right hand.” – Isaiah 41:10

Feed your faith and your fears will starve to death.” -Author Unknown

Some days there won’t be a song in your heart. Sing anyway.” -Emory Austin

The human spirit is stronger than anything that can happen to it.” -C.C. Scott

Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.” -3 John 1:2 (NIV)

Do not be afraid of tomorrow; for God is already there.” -Author Unknown

Courage is being afraid but going on anyhow.” -Dan Rather

And most importantly…

Every evening turn your worries over to God. He’s going to be up all night anyway.” -Mary C. Crowley

Never, Never, NEVER GIVE UP.” -Winston Churchill

HOPE. BELIEVE. FAITH. It’s not over yet!

Wow! October already! This year seemed like the fast forward button was pressed too often! 2 more months till the New Year. I know what you’re thinking- You haven’t achieved much this year or all the goals and dreams you listed at the beginning of the year nothing clicked. You are getting more discouraged and depressed with each countdown to the end of the year.

BUT, you know that it’s not too late for a breakthrough right?

Pay a visit to Hope and Faith and hold on to both of them like your life depended on it, DON’T LET GO! Don’t Doubt! Don’t Fear! Believe that something good is going to happen to you and for you soon.

Don’t let your present situation define you. Have faith in God’s plan for you.
