If you are not aware that this is part of your instagram feed? i suspect you follow too many accounts! this appears when you have consumed all the new content available from the accounts you follow, since last time you logged in!
a few weeks ago i unfollowed hundreds of accounts. friends. family. pages i love! wanna know why?
social media is not real life! sure, it’s an awesome place to hang out and check in on what’s going on. but it’s also a really good distraction from the real world which happens behind and around our screens, and it’s also a terrible substitute for real life interaction. how many hours have you mindlessly scrolled through your feed or the explore page? i know i’m guilty of hours wasted each day! i dread to think how many cumulative hours social media has grabbed from me! the truth is i suppose, i gave those hours willingly. i, like most of us, have a terrible addiction to my phone.
you have my blessing to use me as a catalyst! unfollow me if my content isn’t bringing you joy or support or help! and then go on to unfollow as many accounts as you are able to! if you are “muting” people? start there! if you don’t wanna see their content? why follow them?

i only follow 33 accounts now. it’s like a dream because every time i log in to the ‘gram? i see this phrase within a minute or less! even first thing in the morning!
you’re all caught up

i won’t be offended if you unfollow me. if it’s what’s best for you? do it!!!! you will feel so much better when you cut away what you don’t need in your life! (and you do not need to be following me to enter my biggest ever giveaway this week!! you don’t have to follow me or like my posts or pledge your first born child. just participate!) are you brave enough to start to take control of your real life and break up with social media?

“how do i get cleaner lines”
“why aren’t my designs as neat as i want”
“i’m not good at henna”


i hear these things all the time. ♥

firstly please can you take a moment to erase or reduce negative self talk, regarding your henna work. it’s beautiful! you create art and that’s something to be so proud of, you have literally made something where nothing was before! ♥

secondly / you will see results if you really start to put in the work. it’s not super difficult (i promise) but it does require you committing to a goal. i know you can achieve it. do you? are you ready to take a huge leap?


start with daily practice. look at henna artists work you admire (there are so many different styles out there! focus on those who’s work calls to you!)


ask them about their cones and paste. maybe they would be willing to recommend a supplier or share their recipe? (as for me? check on my website under the “free stuff” tab for some free pdfs to download to help you!


and once you have good quality paste? pick up the cone and practice. do it as often as you can. be consistent, diligent, confident! feel in your heart the magic of practice. write down what you want to achieve and the steps you need to take to get there. ♥

i know it’s scary but i’m so excited for you to manifest the s**z out of any goal you have! ♥

My final shipping date in the usa was last week - but i have some supplies left and will be making cones this week. there won’t be a choice on scent (if you are sensitive or allergic to any essential oil, please don’t order, they won’t be labeled!) there will just be packs available. i don’t know how many i will have and those who already sent me a text message get priority, but if you wanna be on the list? send me a text! 7026001933 usa only! tell me how many cones you want in multiples of 5 ($5 per cone) and your shipping option (express is $25 and priority is $9) ... i won’t be responding today and you aren’t guaranteed cones but it will be first text first served basis! x

Do you customers ever worry that they won’t get a dark stain? do they have a darker skin tone than you and think the henna won’t show? •

when i saw @joelg.acts at an event in vegas i immediately knew i wanted to henna her!!! she had the most amazing glitter lips and looked so fire! 🔥🔥


the key to this incredible natural henna stain? it’s 3 fold
1. henna on the hands always stains beautifully. stick to a well staining part of the body!
2. beautiful paste and a bold design! my paste is magnificent, if i do say so myself! it stains well and is a lovely consistency. i make sure to use some lovely bold elements so i can be sure of an epic stain!
3. your customer should follow your aftercare to the letter! (if you look in my story highlights you will find a shot of my aftercare card so you can see what i recommend). •

swipe through the pics. the day the paste was removed i got a text - is this okay? don’t worry i say! just be patient! you see, the initial bright orange won’t show up on all skin tones, but the final color? will! •

if your customer follows aftercare and you have an amazing paste? all you have to do is choose the right spot on the body and you will achieve this color! •

This is iris! fun fact, when i met her, she wouldn’t talk but instead barked at me like a dog! 😂 (that’s also prolly the reason why i adore her!) ... •

fun fact number two. nemo (my dog) sings on command when you ask him to “sing like beyoncé” .... iris thought i was asking him to sing like a “fiancé”. •

@milspo_lularoe is her mumma and one of the nicest, kindest most spesh peeps i know. fun fact about maggie, the first time she had me over for dinner? instead of lettuce she used cabbage in the salad. classic maggie! •

just love making friends. i’m so grateful for all the people who made these last 9 years brilliant! •

can’t believe that this time next month i’ll be back in europe. surreal! exciting! •

If you want to practice henna but don’t have henna? or don’t want a stain on your skin? you can use body paint! look for the skin safe thicker paints in tubes, and transfer into a henna cone. i don’t have the brand of this paint but it was the perfect consistency.

comment 57 star 2,476 5 days ago

I didn’t pick up a cone today to practice because i was busy sending orders and preparing for the movers tomorrow (today!) ... but i did grab this cone which has been out for 4 days and started to separate (that’s the oil, pooling on the top and looking s little black), and i filmed this luscious dot! the key to perfect dots? keep your cone upright inside the paste and let gravity do all the work! if your paste is like mine? it will do this! (my organic blends sometimes don’t, as they are a little stringier!) •

anyway.... i have felt really grateful today, a little overwhelmed with all that needs to be done but so pleased for all i have. •

i started my day off at 5am making paste and i ran out of sugar. at first i was annoyed at being so unprepared but then i realized if i popped to the shops i could also go and get some vegan donuts! so i bought a box for the security and cleaning crew where i live, and when a i dropped orders off i dropped a box to the post office team too! •

i know i talk about abundance a lot, but i really live it too! i spread happiness (and donuts) wherever i can, it creates so much abundance!!!!!! •

i hope your monday was as awesome as mine!!!!! •

Your “follows” & “likes”.... they don’t mean anything. nothing important enough to worry about anyway! they only represent in that moment who is viewing and tapping a screen in another part of the world, how can that validate your worth? how can that tell you a single thing about what you just shared? •

you are amazing, you can achieve anything you want, you are the only you in all of existence and there will never be another ever. think about that again! while we stare at these little screens? the clock is tickingx we will never get that moment back, so are you using it wisely? •
remember who you are outside of social media, and go be that person. what makes you smile? do more of that! stop thinking that instagram or facebook or snapchat matter..... when you are lying on your death bed you won’t be saying, gosh if only i spent a few more hours staring at my screen consuming a load of content that was useless in the end. you are gonna wish you did more things that made you happy or made a difference. •

if you want to know why i don’t do shout outs or paid promotions, and why i have never ever taken a single penny for instagram promotion? click #whyjoeydoesntdoshoutouts and read the caption. •

you are so important, and instagram likes are not. take a moment, reflect on what’s important in life and reset your goals in alignment. let’s all unplug more and live our best lives! (not vicariously through our phones!)
