Well said, Tyra!
Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes
Some things are just meant to be seen in motion. That’s certainly the case with A Million Times, a whirring board of almost 300 analogue clocks that exist in such a beautiful harmony with one another that they can segue from a pattern of rhythmically undulating waves to a full-functional digital watchface. A static image doesn’t do it justice.

In an open letter, Callie Carling, founder of Olio Terapeutica, shares how cancer and a seemingly-random mix of essential oils, Laughter Yoga, mineral makeup and creativity coaching can change lives and how Olio Terapeutica is changing, too. Cancer has nothing on elephants and pink ribbons. I know that. How do I know that? because of my personal experience going through the breast cancer wringer 34…
We are just SO excited! Beauty products and make-up have been a huge part of our world for sooooo many years, and over the past decade, it has become increasingly important to us that we use less chemicals in our daily beauty regime. Skincare was the first to really take off – the no-nasties, all-natural, much-lauded…

You know how Facebook asks you “What’s on your mind?” …
Well, what’s on my mind this morn is how I’ve spent years & years trying to deny my inner Goddess the freedom she needs - to play, to grow, to be seen. 2 steps forward, 1 step back (or sometimes 3!).
My cancer diagnosis in 2011 was undeniably a huge kick up the butt … but it’s only now, coming through the other side of psychotherapy, that I’m healing. Inside and out. It’s been really hard. It IS really hard. Some weeks I’m pretty much catatonic while my body & mind rewires itself through the blessing that is the Image Rescripting process.
It’s difficult to “show up” at work when this is going on, but my passion for what I do really fires me up and keeps me going.
I’ve been thinking about all those dreams I had years + years ago … I wanted to be a vet (too many years at Uni put me off but you could see the healer in me peeping out), then an artic lorry driver (I still can’t drive but I love to travel!); I wanted to train as a theatrical make-up artist (oh! the glimmer of a creative goddess!), then I found my life path as a trainer/teacher/educator.
My personal and my professional life are finally slotting together perfectly; a scattered jigsaw that needs patience and time to see what the whole picture is. My skills, my talents, my interests, my life’s lessons, are all merging - and it’s wonderful.
My inner Goddess is ready to be playful! She is ready to be seen! She is super-excited to be able to play with make-up now (mineral make-up, at that) which is part of “business” - not that I seek approval or justification for my choices. I just like to know that everything has a purpose
I’m excited that I’ve finally found a natural (read: mineral) make-up range that can help me feel ‘pretty’ again. Losing my hair was a shock - the biggest shock was having NO eyebrows and NO eyelashes while on chemo; the second shock was that I’m left with patchy eyebrows and sparse eyelashes. I tried the super-expensive route of eyelash extensions and *yuk* that was such an unpleasant experience!!
Thankfully, Younique’s 3D Fiber Lash mascara gives me what I yearned for since my recovery from cancer + treatment: pretty, long eyelashes.
So I’m very excited to share my inner Goddess’s passion for beauty & creativity, along with an opportunity for women in the UK (no matter what their life looks like) to play with make-up and be one of the first in the UK to create a super-successful business via social media -www.youniqueproducts.com/calliecarling
Watch out world, Callie’s inner Goddess is finally ready to be unveiled and she’s stepping out to play …
