Living in Stars

The Band Aid for a bad day is a full face of make up. The crutch for a broken spirit, is a kickass get up. Its true, healing comes from within. But if its taking too long, you can always go from the outside in! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Finding my Inner Unicorn. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Pro Family?

To the people who say that they are Pro family. 

You say: “The Gays” are destroying the family unit.

I am deeply ashamed to admit that a long, long time ago, I thought the same thing.

When I was 17, a really really good friend told me that she was gay. Instead of opening my arms and giving her a hug, I put my hands together and I prayed for her soul.

Till today, I do not know how she forgave me.

When I was 18, I said to my 40 year old friend, “But isn’t it a choice? I don’t hate gay people, I just don’t think its the right choice to make.”

He said, “If I had a choice, why would I choose this path? You have no idea how hard it has been.”

And we just need to look around to know that it is hard.

Now, at 27, I have friends whose parents won’t talk to them. Friends who are ashamed to talk about their gay siblings. Friends who won’t tell people they are gay because relatives might talk.

The way I see it, “The Gays” are not destroying the family unit; 

You are.

When you decide that the “unconditional love” you have been given makes you more right than someone else.

When you tell your friend, “Don’t let your son wear pink, don’t let your girl wear blue, don’t let your children read about gay penguins because they might turn gay too.”

When you say to your child “Stop being ‘A Gay’, how am I supposed to face my friends.”

As though who they are is dirty and shameful. As though it is some kind of disease that you catch.

Shame… On you. 

"Family, is where life begins and love never ends."

And it is a tragedy when society stops families from being what they can and should be; a source of neverending and true unconditional love and support.

The family unit IS being destroyed.

But… Let us be honest… 


By who?




***********

I wrote this piece a while ago in response to the National Library wanting to pulp children books that “didn’t promote the traditional family structure” and put it on my personal fb page. One of the books was And Tango Makes Three based on the TRUE STORY of two male penguins who hatched an egg and raised a baby penguin. If you wanna find out more about the National Library Saga, search “National Library Penguin”.  

I decided to post it again and on more public platforms because I recently watched this video of a family just reacting in such a crushing manner to the boy coming out to them, and it was really… Disappointing. Sad. And disappointing. That for all the progress we have made as a human race, we still can’t respect another person’s basic right to be who they want to be. 

The link to the video is here. http://youtu.be/kUx4qkCgfU8

We can do better. We must. 

 If you are struggling with it, I just want you to know that you are not alone. There are people on your side. If you need someone to talk to, check out this site http://www.oogachaga.com , a friend of mine told me about it. If any of you have other suggestions, please share below.

The Secret to Not Being Lonely?

Do you sometimes get the feeling that you are alone in a crowd?

I do. Quite a lot. And it is one of the mysteries I am trying to crack in the show I’m doing, #UnicornMoment.

So after doing a bunch of interviews, i think i maaay have some kind of idea where this comes from.

1. Secrets
2. Pain that we cannot deal with
3. The belief that we are not worth it.

Soo.. Here is a little video that i hope will start to help a little bit..

The Week of Being Grateful

I’m dedicating this week to being grateful. Because things have been going pretty good, I figure that this is the best time to put aside brainspace to be grateful because I gotta be prepared for when things are bad! Right??

Being grateful doesn’t -just happen-. Especially when we are all working hard and working for more, more, more.. Things aren’t always rainbows and sparkles and sometimes, things get bad.

And we all know how hard it is to climb out of a shit hole.

So I reckon, once in a while, you gotta force yourself to open your eyes and see the good things! This way, you will still be able to see it when its all covered in shit. Right??

Practice makes perfect. ;)

Love, hugs and sparkles,
Shu An

Flattering Bright Lipsticks for Summer

Love the look of a bright, strong lip and minimal makeup on the rest of the face because it just makes your entire face glow, but the wrong shades can look totally “off” in the most obvious way.

Here are 10 of the “bright” lip colors in my collection that I feel are universally-flattering on most skintones. I don’t mean there aren’t more than these, but they’re just the ones I’ve tried and would recommend.

Corals

Corals are orange-reds. Some might have a touch of pink in them as well. These 2 shades work on most skin tones from very pale to dark.

  • MAC Lady Danger: This matte is very intense and VERY beautiful. On pale skins it will look almost scarlet but have a touch of brightness and warmth. On dark skins, it will look like a true orange-based coral.
  • L’oreal Wild Tango (Asia exclusive): This is a juicier, truer orange with just a hint of pearl. Wear this if you want a more obvious orange. For those outside Asia, Milani’s Mango Mambo is VERY similar so try that one instead.
