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.

  • 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

  • ✨🌙 🙏🏼🌎 ❤️amazing

  • Yeeeeeeeeeees ❤❤

  • 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.

Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall 🍂📸@alwaysxbetter ps. I forgot my makeup brush belt at home which was probably one of my worst nightmares coming true so I literally ran like on foot to the nearest Claire’s and bought a 5 pack brush set, with no blending brush, a brow comb, and one face powder brush. The fact that I pulled this makeup off is a damn miracle, and I expect high amounts of praise 😂 haha jk but kinda

Re-uploaded my storytime video. I won’t say much here because I already explained in the description box, but just wanted to let y’all know I heard you. But in case you thought this experience would’ve somehow scared me from speaking up for myself or the animals... oh honey no :( If anything, the response has absolutely terrified me and only fuels me more because I forget how far we still are from a compassionate humanity... breaks my heart but this only means one thing for me: Push harder 😇💪🏼🌎❤️ link in bio

Storytime!!!!!! Soooo I lost my car keys Saturday night somewhere in the French quarters, checked everywhere we went and never found them. So now I need a new car key (and apartment keys)... and it’s Sunday so the dealerships are closed and so are most of the locksmiths!!! My car is parked 2 blocks away from the hotel and parking isn’t free so basically I have to extend my stay another night (not free) and get a key made in the morning. Cool. Not that bad. Morning comes and none of the dealerships OR key shops have my specific key in stock... and it’ll be Wednesday morning before one would be there. It’s also $300. So I call a tow-truck to go to a dealership and I’m just going to rent a car and drive back to Atlanta (my bf will drive my car home after he gets back from his cruise). What’s that? No cars available at any car rental near me? Awesome. It would’ve also been $300. So I’m going to meet the tow truck driver and my car is gone... turns out he came an hour early without calling me and took my car to a different dealership!?¿!? Anyways the dealerships figured their shit out and are hopefully making me a key. I ended up just booking a flight home and I’m currently in a mall food court typing this because I had to buy new clothes since I didn’t pack to stay this long. Now I get to walk back to the hotel, get all my shit and uber to the airport. Long story short... New Orleans: 1 Alison: -5 ...BUT, it was all strangely worth it because I love New Orleans 😭🤷🏽‍♀️🌴⚜️🎭

⚡️⚡️⚡️ B O W I E ⚡️⚡️⚡️ “I don’t know where I’m going from here but I promise it won’t be boring.” I have this album cover hanging in my room and while I was brainstorming Halloween ideas, I looked over and thought hmm 😊 I had a crush on him when I was little after watching the Labyrinth 🙈 anyone else? Ps. I’m trying not to beat myself up too much about not filming as many looks as I planned- life just happens and time moves so damn quick. Will try my best to get this tutorial and hopefully one more up by Halloween. Blah. Sorry y’all 😞

Been using @whitewithstyle for over a year now and I’m always happy with the results! I hate whitening my teeth but I find it less annoying when I multi-task. Throw on a face mask and a 30 minute guided meditation and it’ll fly by- then you’ll have soft skin, whiter teeth and some mental clarity after☺️ (ps. use my code Alisonkit28 to save helllllaaa $$ off) #whitewithstyle #ad
