Recently, DailyFashionista was invited to attend a special event held by philosophy in New York City. We have long been using their beauty line and appreciate the positive meaning behind all that they do. Quality and timeless yet innovative beauty always come to mind when we reach for their products.
This powerful event was held at NYIT where they introduced their new well-being ambassador Gabby Bernstein. Philosophy’s message for the event was Hope Never Rests. Both Gabby and Philosophy’s message is to live with optimism and renew with hope.
Gabby Bernstein is a motivational speaker, life coach and author. Gabby has coined the phrase Spirit Junkie. A Spirit Junkie is a group of people who are leading a spiritual movement through meditation, manifestation and yoga. At Philosophy’s event, Gabby spoke about turning your hope and dreams into reality and manifesting miracles in your life. More often than not, we tend to focus on the things we don’t have in our lives; for example, not having your dream job or dream house, lack of romance, lack of money to name but a few. Gabby states, that the secret to prayer is to forget what you think you need. She explained that so many people hold onto their visions with an agenda; for instance, they need money but they need it now or yesterday, they need to be physically fit now, I want my dream job but, I want it today and why hasn’t my boyfriend proposed (we could easily go on). The problem with holding onto your visions with an agenda is that you are in a constant state of want. Instead, Gabby suggests the more hopeful you are — the greater the chances of bringing in all that you desire because your energy is in a state that is dwelling of knowing; being in the state of knowing is what truly manifests miracles. Feeling manifests our dreams into reality. The greatest way to what you desire is to dwell in the energy of joy. Instead, of comparing yourself to someone else in the room feel happy for them. For example, if your best friend just got engaged to the man of her dreams and you are still single feel that happiness for your best friend. Just because your friend is engaged it does not mean you will never be engaged; it means, it just didn’t happen to you yet. Instead of feeling sorry for yourself, that you are still single feel excited that one day your best friend will be at your wedding. Gabby states, “those who are certain of the outcome can afford to wait and wait without anxiety.”
Gabby Bernstein and Philosophy send a very important message — to value your authenticity and feel good on the inside. Beauty is not solely based on physical appearance. It is important to feel beautiful and feel like you are enough. Philosophy and Gabby also translate the message that it is important not to give up on yourself and your dreams.
This evening we were also learning about Renewed Hope in a Jar. This cream is clinically proven to provide your skin with an all-day glow, visibly smaller pores and fine lines, all-day hydration and re-energized color. When I tried this product out, I noticed that my foundation did not crease throughout the day and my skin felt extremely soft. The basis for a great makeup day and confidence is always great skincare.
A special thank you to Philosophy for this uplifting evening. DailyFashionista also enjoys stopping by the Philosophy Instagram for updates, product launches and beauty tips!
