Best Life Advice: There’s this book I read earlier this year, not all the way through but a part of it stuck with me. It’s called The Body Is Not An Apology by Sonya Renee Taylor. In the book she explained that a lot of things, issues in the world today and years ago revolved around ones body. For me the more I thought about the concept and how it relates to my life I found myself often feeling the need to apologize. For what? I don’t know but I do. Whether it was being for too shy, too loud, too nice or whatever the case may be, I was sorry. After reading this book, I felt like I was finally opening up and embracing the idea that it is okay to make mistakes. To be imperfect is a part of being human. It’s a part of life. The basis was radical self-love. If we all tried practicing a little more kindness and empathy things might be a little, for the lack of a better word, intense.
Favorite Coffee Order: Not much of a coffee drinker but whenever I pop into the little Starbucks around the corner I get a small mango-dragonfruit iced tea. Sound delicious and refreshing? Yep, it is(:
I attached a few of my paintings I created this year and one of them last year (The Archer). My artist name is officially arielableu. Just case you were wondering about the signature change I started out using just my initials then changed it something I liked just a bit more.
Nice things to know about me: I am from the tropical country of Belize though I am currently residing in the United States.
Big Taylor Swift (music) lover. Seinfeld gives me life. I have a twin. The soap brand Caress inspired my name Kareece.
P.s. If you look closely enough in the All the feels painting under one the eyes there’s lyrics from Only The Young by Taylor and the other Fitz and Tantrums All The Feels song.
