Blog is a sterile word to me. It evokes as much warmth and coziness as a Best Buy—technical and complicated and full of gadgets that you’re not sure how to use.
And so to me, The Lipstick Gospel isn’t a blog.
The Lipstick Gospel is my living room.
It’s glowy in here, smelling like a warm candle flickering in the corner next to a stack of your favorite books. The chairs are comfortable—inviting you to sink back in them instead of sitting up straight. And there’s always a fuzzy blanket, ready to wrap you up in a hug—making you feel held and free at once.
This is a place where it’s ok to be a mess—to take off your shoes and your coat and your façade, allowing people to see the truth about who you are without any make up or good lighting or gloss.
This is a place of freedom—where we find out that it’s ok to not be perfect, and to need comfort, reassurance, and help sometimes.
And here we talk about life and love and where we’ve been and where we’ll go. It’s a place to be open and honest and slightly messy and un-kept.
I wish that I could invite you all over, and have us all packed into my cozy living room here in Georgia. But I figured that a video was the next best thing.
So kick your shoes off and grab your favorite mug and join me for our very first Lipstick Gospel Coffee Date.
Thank you to Natalie Borton for the inspiration!
