I've struggled my entire life trying to decide "what I want to do with it", as I'm sure most of you have. It can be a daunting question, a lingering cloud of anticipation with so much depending on the answer. Some people search their whole lives and never find it, however I am no longer one of those searchers. Last week I had a moment, I was alone watching footage from the largest animal rights march in history and something happened to me. It's hard to explain, but it was like I had a reunion with my highest self, saying finally, I know who I am and why. My tears poured with conviction as I envisioned myself marching front and center with the other activists. I was enveloped into full transparency about what I was made for and I know without a doubt now- this is it. I will no longer conjecture about my future because I know where my peace lives- it's in the fight. The fight for justice, the fight for freedom, the fight for the voiceless victims and our sacred planet. I cannot pretend or allow myself to be reduced to a "beauty guru" when the activist, the HUMAN in me is so much stronger. She will not be suppressed- not for superficial status, not for money, not for social praise or condemnation, and I'm sorry I ever let my biggest enemy, my fear, take any position at all. I feel stronger than ever and my voice will be heard. I will continue to practice makeup as it's a passion I will always love, but I am doing myself, the community, and the animals a huge injustice by not taking my activism seriously. I will expect to lose followers, but do not care. The apathetic sheep will be replaced with conscious, compassionate minds who wish to see progression in this lifetime. Although I'm aware this is all a big game- I cannot deny that my hand still burns over a flame. Suffering is real. And I'm fortunate enough to be able to do something about it... if you could too, would you?
MASSIVE THANKS to @earthlinged @jamesaspey @joey_carbstrong @rob____banks @crisveganfit @tal_gilboa_official and so many more heroic souls that inspire me every. single. day. to be better for the animals. I wouldn't be who I am today if they weren't who they are. Eternally grateful.

  • I feel like I'm in this search now, trying to find my purpose in life. I'm in a similar place to you mentally as you were a while back, and my physical health is bad but those things I'm getting help for/with. It's the search to find a future I'll connect with and love, how to harness my own passion for animal rights, veganism and protecting the world I've struggled with. But you just gave me some hope I'll find that future. You have already made a great difference just being vocal and open with your journey and passion, you can only make an even greater difference now. This is beyond inner beauty and outer beauty, this is your truest self.

  • Standing with you, sister!!! 💜👊

  • ❤️❤️❤️❤️ so amazing

  • you have such a good soul and ily always 🌞🦋

  • Wonderful 🍀🍀🍀❤️❤️❤️

  • Yesss 🙌👏❤️ Animals need a voice, and the treatment of them is horrific most of the time. You inspired me to throw out thousands of dollars worth of animal tested beauty products and stop buying milk. I now buy almond milk and I only buy cruelty free products thanks to your voice. I’m really happy to hear you found your true purpose and I hope you continue to make a difference for all animals in this world. Xo-Danielle @alisonhenryy

  • Yes 👌🌞💜

  • Hell yes I want to be an activist for animals too! 😍

  • Such a beautiful post 🙌🏻❤️

  • I would 100% do this but I feel like the people there would judge me for not being vegan

  • @abielyaf why not try it?

  • Yes suffering is real. This is empowering because it helps those on the fence also break out of their shell! Thank you❤️

  • I’ve been following you for years, originally for your makeup videos (your talent is so impressive) and I have to say that your spiritual/personal evolution and growth is inspiring. I know you had a really tough time when you started to wake up, and I went through something similar myself. As a fellow vegan, I’m so happy to see you outspoken about this issue and it continues to inspire me to be more active in dissolving cruelty also ❤️

  • Thank you for this! I love it:)

  • It's so crazy. I remember watching your videos a few years back and I knew how much you loved animals and I kept thinking, if only she knew 😭 I secretly knew you were vegan at heart lol and here you are. Just makes me so much more of a fan 😊💞

  • @earth.babie omg I feel the same way, i don’t know what took me so long 😭

  • The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated. Man is the most insane species. He worships an invisible god and slaughters a visible nature, without realizing that this nature he slaughters is this invisible god he worships. I'm glad to see others are finally understanding the importance of flora and fauna activism.

Woke up in my new apartment today and I feel different in such a new and exciting way. I know I’ve gotten less personal with my followers lately because the last few months have been really bad for me and tbh, I spent most of it in another world, one I created behind my eyelids. But for once, I have confidence that I can begin living in this realm willingly again without the need to escape. I’m doing some things differently now- changing my atmosphere, my tendencies, my obsessions- following a new formula to life. I’m excited to be a witness to this, and watch myself transform in this “happening” where I know anything is possible. I will update you all soon in a video of what’s going on and where my head is at, so thank you for being patient with me as always. ❤️ I feel weird even being this positive lol and my family’s gonna read this and be like lol wtf who hacked your Instagram lol where’s Alison lol why are u awake lol no but for real, it does feel strange to experience some light when you’re so used to dark. But bring on the light, universeeee bring me back to myself!! I am so ready 🙌🏼👁💃🏻💫🌈🌻🌞🏡💡

To be honest, I don’t feel very inspiring today and plenty of other inspiring women have already posted wonderfully inspiring captions, so I’m just gonna talk to myself and maybe it’ll be what someone else feels too. The truth is- I’m tired of being a woman. In fact, I hate it sometimes. I crack almost every day under the pressures we feel from society; to be quiet with our opinions if they involve politics or sports or engineering or whatever else, to not engage in sexual activities with whoever we want whenever we want because its unattractive and “slutty”, to dress classy but sexy but not too revealing but also still revealing but modest but still really sexy, to always have our hair, makeup and nails done otherwise we look lazy, unprofessional or “sick”, to have big boobs, big asses, small waists, nice legs, clear skin (and not just one, but all of them), to be a “boss bitch” who “slays” and gets her own money and doesn’t depend on anyone else... Well guys, I ain’t sign up for this shit so to hell with it. I am a woman but more than that, I am just a human. I know men have their list of double standards and struggles as well that I will never understand, so this is nothing against them, but this is a man’s world. I often say to myself “if I were a boy, my life would be so much easier” and maybe that would be true and maybe not at all. I’m still learning to fully embrace my sexuality in a world that often makes us feel like that’s a crime to do. Don’t get me wrong, I love being a woman. It’s just hard out here and I’m not feeling so strong and powerful like I’m supposed to today. But that doesn’t mean I haven’t before or won’t again- I guess I just wanted to speak on behalf of the women who see and admire these strong, beautiful, powerful women, but don’t feel anything like them. You are who I see and admire. I am rooting for you and hope that we can all unveil our true power and nature as the divine feminine, because there is NOTHING on earth like us. #internationalwomansday ❤️ 📷: @alwaysxbetter

A video just went up on my channel! It was filmed in November... and I’m just now uploading it. I had so much anxiety around this video, for literally no reason... I mean, I had an edit that made me procrastinate this video for 2 months, don’t you just love anxiety? Oh well. It’s out there now and not haunting me anymore. Hope someone likes it lol 🙄 I used my girl @lovemelisamichelle’s palette with @ultabeauty and it’s a yes ma’am 👏🏼💕

Hello lovely strangers/friends! I’ve missed ya’s! I’ve been a little distant lately and I would apologize for it but one of my resolutions this year is to stop apologizing for everything, especially for things I cannot always control, like manic depression, OCD, and anxiety. And you’re prob like WOAH BITCH did you really just bring that taboo shit up out of nowhere on a selfie caption??? Why yes, yes I did 🤘🏼😂 And no I’m not just tryna be ~deep~ on every post now haha I wanna bring it up because I believe 2018 is going to be a huge year for mental health, and I think a major way to kickstart that is to just start talking about it like it’s normal, because guess what? IT IS!!!!! I GOT IT, YOU GOT IT, ERRYBODY GOT IT!! 😩😂 Lol but seriously, the more openly we speak about it, the less scary and intimidating it becomes. And the more people we can get to laugh at the stigma behind mental illness, instead of the illness itself, the more room we can open up for understanding and healing. Because the cure is out there, but no one can find it if they’re too embarrassed to admit they’re sick.
Well, I’m not embarrassed. I’ll take one for the team and type it all up on instagram, put myself on blast and tell ya I’m totally struggling!! With like, everything!! I cry 10 times a day!!! Haha and why is that okay? Because I know I’m not the only one!! We all have a dark hole we fall into and there’s nothing more frustrating than having others stand at the top, look in and say “just get out?? It’s all fine?? Its not that deep?? Why you in there??”
So I won’t be doing that. I couldn’t do that even if I wanted to, because I know that place all too well. I just want to meet you down there, wherever you are, exactly as you are, and sit with you in the dark, because I have my own dark place and I believe we have a better chance of crawling out if we do it together. Vulnerability is our most accurate measure of courage, so let’s be courageous enough to meet people where they’re at, even if it means leaving the light for total darkness. Sometimes the light you bring is the only light we see, and that is empathy. That is love. That is the cure ❤️❤️❤️

Storytime!! I got bangs!! I got bangs and that’s it. That’s the story.. hahah no jk there’s a real story and it goes like this: Once upon a time I was @ my hair salon and a girl comes in and sits in the chair like diagonally behind me so when we look in the mirror we can see each other’s faces. So naturally we made lots of awkward eye contact and I could basically hear everything she said and yes I was eavesdropping 😅 The moment she sat down she apologized to her stylist for the way she looked. The thing is- she looked totally fine, she just wasn’t wearing any makeup. I could just hear the insecurity in her voice, and it broke my heart not only because she was so pretty without makeup and couldn’t see it, but because that is what I used to do. It took everything in me in that moment to not turn around and give her an entire self-love speech. But I refrained, even after she sat back down after rinsing and made another comment about how she now looked like a pterodactyl, like the dinosaur, because her hair was slicked back and wet (?!) I listened as the stylist uncomfortably refuted her negative comments “what?? No girl you’re totally fineeee!” And I knew this wasn’t a case of fishing for compliments, she was genuinely uncomfortable with her own presence and felt like she needed to beat people to the punch, as if they were already thinking such things about her. But y’all, the mere idea of APOLOGIZING to people when you’ve done nothing wrong to them is useless and doesn’t even make sense because your face is not a crime, your acne is not scaring people and your bare face is not offensive nor in need of some kind of explanation. You are who you are, and that needs NO apology; to anyone, under any circumstance, ever. And I felt for that girl, and I still wish I had said something to her, because she is the reason I got bangs after I saw how amazing they looked on her when she walked out. And that’s the catch22. Her believing she was ugly didn’t stop her beauty from shining and inspiring others, it only limited her chance to see it for herself, and that’s the real crime. You are beautiful and worthy. Stop apologizing. The end ☺️💕✨
