It's A Bruno Mars Kind Of Day

How I Accidently Discovered How Truely Inspiring Peter Gene Hernandez Is.

It's A Bruno Mars Kind Of Day

It's not very often I am drawn to the personal life of a mainstream musician. As deep as I dive for music, and despite how much it encompasses everything in my life, I usually try to stay away from finding out too much about them personally. It allows me to interpret the music the way I want and not become biased. However, while I was strolling through the internet this week, I came upon a short video on Facebook by happenstance.

"We had it all ya' know? We had each other. And it never felt like it was the end of the world, Sorry we don't got electric today. Its alright, its temporary, we're gonna figure this out"

It's not just Bruno's words that hit me in the gut; artists have stories like this all the time -- it's common place. It's the look on his face. He doesn't look at his childhood with resentment, remorse or look to be pitied. He looks at his life with joy and happiness. Maybe his parents couldn't give him the world, but they taught him the one thing I strive to teach my own daughter: Love and Family and just having each other. That is the most important thing in the world.

I have gained a lot of respect for Bruno Mars, because he embodies so many positive qualities I wish the younger generation of today to posses. In the world as it is today, being able to appreciate, love, and stay positive is so very important.

While children are pitching fits over iPhones, and game consoles, Bruno's over here counting his blessings everyday and telling his family he loves them. We need more Bruno in our lives, we need more love and happiness in our lives.

So here are some facts about Bruno Mars to get you through your Monday.

If there's one thing everyone's talking about right now, it's voting — in real life, on social media, and yes, even on dating apps.

And rightfully so! Because is there really anything sexier than someone who cares about using their voice to be the change they want to see? In my opinion, no... not much, honestly.

Any medium- to dark-skinned woman knows how difficult it can be to find the right SPF. Most mass-market SPF products are catered to lighter skin tones, and the potent UV-blocking titanium dioxide and zinc oxide have a way of leaving an unflattering white or grey cast on the skin.

I began suffering the symptoms of PCOS — acne, fatigue, weight gain, and an irregular cycle — when I was about 16, but I wasn't diagnosed until about nine years later.

The symptoms were, of course, frustrating, but I am now thankful for all of the time I spent trying to manage them naturally with my diet, herbs, and vitamins. Now that I am diagnosed, I do take a small dose of prescribed spironolactone which has helped immensely, mostly with my skin.
