Stuck In A Tank Full Of Sharks! A Beauticians Struggle!

imageDay after day I would sit and think for hours how I can better my craft, I always think about  how I need to network more but then, I would back track. My mind would full up with images and situations from the past where I would just say forget it. Many times I would think about just quitting this industry but it’s in my blood.

I could never understood why salon lifestyle is so catty! I know that competition is healthy but at the same how can I do my job to make someone feel better when half of the time I’m concerned with the emotional and stress causing aspect of this industry. There have been so many times that I would go home crying not because I didn’t have a productive day but because not feeling comfortable in my working evironment! Who would want to work anywhere that they don’t feel at home!

Instead of isolating my situation I started to research and even watch some reality shows that reflect exactly what I am going through. My findings were exactly what I thought,I knew that I am not the only one that goes through the depressing and catty nature of the salon! It’s so bad that many stylist decides to either keep bouncing from shop to shop or they simply just freelance! Now I’ve done both , but trust me by the time I graduated from beauty school and finished my apprenticeship I was both exhausted but motivated more than ever!

Instead of allowing the negativity to defer my art like I have been doing I’ve just will let go and let God! He knows my dreams of changing this whole industry! One day at a time I will get out of this tank full of sharks and swim free in the ocean! In other words do what I came to do make ppl beautiful

Back again!

Today I decided to turn my frustration into motivation and I’m back! It’s been a while since my last post, half of it was due to some personal issues and the other half was due to my writers block. When in writing a blog usually I would draw inspiration from my regular day life, but I couldn’t! I caught myself drowning in a sea of words that Couldn’t form sentences. Many dats and nights I would try to a least right a paragraph but I couldn’t even get one sentence out. I am so happy to say that it’s finally over and I’m ready so buckle up because Shearimani has resurrected!

2015 The Return of The Dapper!

When the 2015 Grammy’s was spectacular! I couldn’t wait to see what fashions these icons were going to bring. Some icons I was actually shocked because they transformed and left their shenanigans at home except for Kanye but we all knows he’s unpredictable; which is why we love him so much. But him and his lady sure step their game up and broke the Internet fully clothed.Lady Gaga was a complete shocker! She kept it simple but elegant. BeyoncĂ© of course kept it regal especially her ring! But last but not least my fellow island girl Rihanna broke barriers and let the world know that they would never know until the time because she is different and that she is an timeless icon.
Elegance was the theme and so was the fashion for some reason this year a lot of the red carpet fashions was phenomenal, different but “dapper” as my Yaya would call it. Yea I did just say “dapper”!
In my Nana days fashion was nice and neat, they made sure that everything would fit them perfectly, because what you wear do represent your first impression and sometimes that’s all you have is that one chance!
With that one chance, for that one night where the whole world tune in to see their favorite musicians and icons they had to make a statement. They had to be dapper for the night. These five icons defined Dapper!

This year Grammys to me was very refreshing because you don’t need to show too much to make a statement or to get noticed all you need is to be dapper!

Do you think that they did a good job representing what dapper means?

Rose Petal Face Mask

Today was the day that I was fed up with the state of my skin! My the past two months since the weather been transitioning from hot to cold my skin have become very dry. Even when I tried moisturizing my skin 3 times a day within a couple of hours my skin would still be dry. I noticed that especially in my t-zone.
At first I thought it was because I wasn’t drinking enough water but I increased my water intake. Then I thought maybe the water that I take a shower with was too hot. That also proven not to be the problem. I was going to just give up because it really seems like nothing was working, so I decided to google some ways to rid of the dryness on my face.
When I googled a solution, rose petal mask! It was definitely ironic that a friend of mine who currently works at Sephora and when it comes down to skin care he’s all about it.
Well I simply followed the instructions, which I had to keep the mask in my face for twenty minutes and upon removing massage the remainder of the product into my skin and do not rinse.
When I was finished I couldn’t believe how soft my skin was and refreshed! My skin literally felt like a baby’s butt. I seriously recommend this facial bask for those who skin is taking a beating for old man winter!

Hello 2015, May The New Journey Begin!

2015 is here whether we were ready for it or not 2015 is here! With everyone making plans to make this year a better than the previous. As for me I am trying to really be comfortable in my own skin and work on being more healthy. With that being said I did some research and at least 50% of those who sought out their New Years resolutions actually stick to at least one.
Some people kind of get too excited with the thought of having a chance at a fresh start that they just don’t realize all the hard work that actually goes in to achieve your goals. I think that instead of jumping into the New Years head first, you should really sit down do some research and map out a plan realistically. Baby steps! Take one day at a time and before you know it, another goal accomplished.
Now I didn’t say take forever to get where your going but I do advise to be prepared, pack well and enjoy your journey because success is a journey and not a destination and when you reach where you wanna go that’s when it’s gets tougher and time to keep what you work so hard for!
Good luck in 2015 and have fun but always remember before you can even plan where your going you have to know where your coming from.

Winter white!

When you think of winter, many think of snow. The houses, trees and streets covered in a large white blanket, nothing seems more peaceful and refreshing than a white Christmas!
White is such a pure and flawless color!
I remember when I was a teen and after Labor Day the fashion rule was that white was not allowed. From those times I never like that rule! I have always been one to wear and do what I want when I want! So what better to start the new year by doing what I want.
The perfect winter white outfit can be achieved by taking in consideration the weatherly elements and marrying them with bold but cozy white fashion pieces. For example I took white skinny leather pants paired it with a white leather peplum top and gold accessories, shoes and belt. To finished my outfit I wore my all white faux fur vest with my white leather jacket underneath. When looked in the mirror I was mesmerized at how well the outfit looked and how I was going to pull it off, I did and the ice skating ring as my backdrop made all the pictures I took that night breathtaking
With white many people gets nervous because how sensitive the color is. For some reason I find wearing white much easier in the winter depending on how messy outside is. I wouldn’t suggest wearing white if the weather is nasty.
One thing I can say for certain is that whether it’s summer, spring, fall or winter wear white if you want to! Because one thing I must say every fashionista enjoys being an ice princess/ queen once in a while!

Beauty is in the eye of the mind!!

Well we have all ladies! Been captivated by these body cinchers that promise us to transform our waste and initiate us into the “no waist gang”. All women want that infamous coke bottle/hour glass shape. I am definitely guilty for that. Would wouldn’t want to be symmetrically portioned. Everyone!
I literally stuff myself into this corset type contraption for 8-10 hours to curve my appetite and to mold my waist while dieting and do extreme core excerise.
I not only was uncomfortable, but it look great. I was in the mirror like wow who knew I would have fall in love with being tied and restrained.
Now I was motivated, 2 hours in the gym for 5 days per week! I did that while wearing the cincher. One day on the bike I wondered how did I get here to this point and what motivated me and then it dawned on me Keyshia Kaior’s body is to die for but why??
If you paid attention to the art of beauty you would know this. For some reason the human mind registers portioned objects perfect. This is why we contour our face in makeup and fashion.
So the next time you see a cincher remember what we talked about and do understand why these fashioned forward gimmicks grasps our attention
“It’s just the art of beauty and the eye of the mind”.

Heels, Heels Ouch!

Every woman loves a nice pair of sexy heels! For one reason or another, but
Most importantly they make you take on a brand new persona! Every female also know that wearing heels is not a easy task, it’s something that you must practice, practice and practice! Practice do make perfect!
My first pair if heels my mom brought me when I was 14. I was a bridesmaid for the first time. Thank god that my mom brought my shoes weeks ahead of the wedding so I can get use to them. I didn’t understand why until I tried them on. When I first stood up and tried to walk, I took two steps and then lost my balance. It was so not a good look! All I could think about how am I going to wear these heels with my long gown and manage not to fall! I had extreme hard task in front of me I thought! For weeks I would practice at least for 4 hours at time!
With all that practice on that day I swear, I had it down packed! I was finally wearing heels comfortably. One thing we must know as women, we must know our bodies because our bodies don’t lie! Especially shoes! Heels hurt regardless but find heels that support your arch as well practicing or as we call it “breaking” them in.
So ladies listen to your feet and once they are not barking you have found the right shoe!

Who I am and why it’s fashion and beauty

Who am I? I am Cece Shearimani I am a hair stylist/MUA that has a futuristic look on hair, fashion and beauty! From since I was a little girl I was mesmerized by the art of cosmetology and the art of fashion! I wanted to know all and everything about these two. The visual and emotional stimulations that they provide was something that I truly could not get enough of.
Everyday I would notice that how much my culture and environment would make me think how can I make my mark or as many would stay what is my legacy! And everyday I would ask myself that same question.
Through hair, fashion and beauty I want to change the world! Shearimani knows that every living thing on this earth has a unique purpose and Job and it’s my job to magnify, celebrate and enhance it through my art!
Being artistic us to be free and I want to be free and so show the world what freedom looks like through my eyes. I just want to be free, welcome to my world! A place where beauty plus fashion equals you! Be you and do you!
P.S. One day I was really just laying in bed and thinking how can I reach my audience and how? That’s when something clicked and I realized what other way than to start a blog. I have always been a fan of blogging because of the freedom of speech! So please feel free to be free as well!IMG_4973.JPG
