We did it! 100,000 subscribers on YouTube. It's incredibly surreal to me that we have hit this milestone together. My channel didn't grow overnight. I don't have a viral video that sent my views skyrocketing. There were a few collaborations and shout outs from friends and channels I've always respected which helped give me a boost, but this has been a three year journey. I'm so excited and overwhelmed. Today's post is a HUGE THANK YOU to my subscribers. As promised at 100k, here is Husband Does My Makeup video. Because I cannot thank you guys enough, I also want to do a fun giveaway with 10 winners! Keep reading to find out more.
HUSBAND DOES MY MAKEUP
A popular tag on YouTube and one we have all been waiting for. Chris was pretty nervous about being on camera, but I think he did great. He defiently took the whole doing my makeup seriously and wanted to do a good job. Definitely not something I'm going to have him do often on me, but I think for his first time ever doing makeup, he did a pretty good job. What are your thoughts?
Did you enjoy the video? Let me know if you want him on my channel again soon. What would you like to see?

To be completely honest, I have a lot of mixed emotions hitting this milestone. I'm so excited and incredibly grateful, but I'm also sad because I miss my mom. If you saw my post last week on Instagram, I talk a bit more about this 100,000 goal. It was a goal my mom and I had set for me. You can find the post HERE.
While, I know that my mom is and for ever will be with me, I can't help feeling the loss more than ever. I got here because of her, my friends, family, Chris, and YOU. This took everyone. I am so blessed to have this community and the people in my life who support me. I'm lucky that I am not alone in this journey, but I have to admit it's been a rough week for me. My tendency can be to not believe when something good has happened. Waiting for the other shoe to drop. Seeing all the negatives. Falling into old habits that die hard. I'm struggling right now. Being honest with you is important because I don't want you to think everything is always rainbows and unicorns. I want to keep a positive mood here, but I want you to know that I'm real and dealing with "stuff." So during a time that I should be celebrating and feeling accomplished, I'm feeling the opposite.
Well, I'll have to keep working through this. I may have to speak to someone again. Maybe I'll unplug a bit or set boundaries with work. I love creating content, but I may need to set a strict schedule as the holidays approach. The truth is I don't have an answer. This is the worse I've felt in a long time. It's kind of poetic to think that I found YouTube and created my channel during the worst depression I'd experienced and now hitting 100,000 subscribers, I'm feeling the worse since I started my channel. The difference now is I have a strong community that has been keeping me going. There's purpose to my day. So I'll continue to dress myself happy each day until I figure this out.
