Color Study: One Photographer Charms Us With Postcards From Cuba! When scrolling through Anna-Alexia Basile’s Instagram feed it’s easy to garner her aesthetic is highly influenced by color and light. Color through light. Light impacting color. It seems only natural that she booked herself a ticket to Cuba just a few months after the country settled differences with the U.S. and opened its welcome gate. Retrophiles have shared in worry — Cuba will soon be impacted by our tourism, and will no longer feel like a moment stuck in a time long, long ago. However, you see here, this has yet to unfold. Cuba is still a land of charisma — each photo almost bringing to life the sounds, smells, visuals of Havanas streets, all swirling together into one visceral treat. We wanted to know everything Anna could tell us about this until-now forbidden place, so grab your café cubano and read on…

Why Cuba?
My world is ruled by color so Cuba was a no brainer. Everything — the house, the cars, the people — are so vibrant. Cuba speaks my visual language, so it was the ideal place to make some color-heavy magic. Plus I’ve always been enamored w salsa dancing and salsa music– you can barely walk the streets there without getting pulled into the rhythm. You may be dancing with a stranger, but the moves are perfectly familiar.

What cities did your Cuban adventure take you to?
We flew into Havana and immediately drove to Viñales, a small rural town on the western side of Cuba. Viñales is so dreamy — it has one main road that’s lined with tons of colorful houses that lead you to the main square. The streets are filled with locals and travelers alike who are all mixing, mingling and dancing in the square into the wee hours of the night. By day we rode horses through the avocado groves and tobacco farms and sampled local rums and hand-rolled cigars. By night we’d always find ourselves back at the main square dancing with strangers and dipping in and out of bars with live music.
We ended our trip in Havana, Cuba’s capital. We spent our days soaking in the ocean air and exploring the winding streets of old Havana. We made friends with young locals and would explore art galleries and beautiful pools by day and then dance into the night on timeworn rooftops.

How did you prep for this trip? 
I did a lot of pre-planning because I knew we were going to have very limited access to the Internet once we arrived. My tips for anyone considering making this beautiful adventure are to:
Download an offline map — enter in all the destinations you’re interested in before you leave the States. This will show you what’s near each other so you can group activities in close proximity together on the same day
BYOB: Bring Your Own Basics — Because of the embargo, Cuba doesn’t have a lot of the basics that we’re used to having day-to-day. I didn’t realize how much I took for granted elementary first aid until I got some gnarly blisters on my feet. Not only did the stores not have Band-Aids, but neither did the emergency room…in Havana, nonetheless!
Embrace the Bike Taxi — Bike Taxis are a great way to quickly shimmy through the skinny streets of Havana. On our first day there we had a young kid Bike Taxi us around Havana Vieja and point out all the big landmarks so we could familiarize ourselves with the area.
Talk to the locals — Make friends with people you meet in the street and spend time with your hosts. Chances are they’ll turn you on to something unexpected!

Tell us about Cuban life: What stood out? What impacted you? Where did you feel the most inspired?
I was blown away by how friendly and welcoming the locals were — both in urban and rural settings we were greeted with open arms. It felt easy to experience the culture because everyone was excited to share it with us. I was most inspired by the colors. My eyes were constantly on sensory overload. I never knew where to look—the corners where the colorful houses meet, the vibrant cars whizzing past each other on the street or the striking older Cuban women smoking cigars alongside ancient buildings.

Let’s get down to it: Where do you suggest travelers go, eat, shop?

Viñales | Eat: At the Casa Particulare that you’re staying at! The hosts will often cook you a really delicious local meal that’s a nice change from the usual nosh

See: Tour the tobacco fields on horseback and take a day trip to Cayo Jutías, a wistful crystal-clear beach where the locals drive their old cars right up to the water

Do: Salsa dance with someone new in the main square!

Havana | Eat: At El Dandy for quick and delicious vegetarian friendly meals and free popcorn, La Guarida for a nice sit-down date, $0.30 street pizza!

See: Get lost in the streets of Havana Vieja and walk the Malecon (the big wall along the sea)

Do: FAC (Fabrica de Arte Cubana) for an evening experience of the young and modern in Havana

Shop: Clandestina for locally designed really rad clothing and bags

Impossible? One might conclude so, yet Clē Cosmetics is proof that inclusivity does have a place in the beauty industry — the beauty line that embraces the rarity of you.

The formula to this come-one-come-all approach is not a marketing ploy, but a transparency — in the way they speak to their customers (educating on their clean ingredients) but also in the actual make-up of the makeup. With lightweight, sheer powders, mists, and pigments the Clē woman is not hiding who she is, but giving life to her inner whims through the products. No longer concealing freckles, but highlighting their existence through the Essence Moonlighter Cushion. Offering a coquettish kiss through the Melting Lip Powder — one that takes your natural lip hue, and brings it up a few watts. A Lifting Mist that just seems to take what you’ve already got and breathe new energy into it’s surface. Just soak up those product names: essence, melt, lift — they are words that don’t mask who you are, but seep into you, becoming one with the wearer.

When we asked Lauren Jin, the companies founder about what inspired Clē she was quick to remind us that “beauty is purely from the self.” Now let that sink in a little.

Our favorites from Clē:
Melting Lip Powder in Hot Chocolate + Milk Chocolate (shown above on cheeks and eyelids as well)
Essence Moonlighter Cushion in Copper Rose
Dry Mask Pack + Lifting Mist

This isn’t an easy out of insecurities, it’s still hard work but from what we’ve found they will set you on the right path. Get ready to free yourself from self-doubt.

Inside:
The inside encompasses the ego and mental selves (if you haven’t read our last post, be sure to do that first) — this is who you believe yourself to be on the inside, what makes up your personality and rules your belief system.

  1. Take charge of your thoughts. Open up the notes in your phone and make a list. Define a being that you could love. Define a being that you believe is beauty. Not by cultures standards, but by your personal standards. For example, your mother is a force to be reckoned with, her large presence and unwavering stance has always been admirable to you — put it on the list. This list will be your touch base whenever you feel unsure in yourself. That’s why it should be kept on your phone, so you can get to it in dire times.
  2. Speak to your body as if it were someone you love — gently, reassuring, pulling out its best attributes to remind it how beautiful and powerful it really is.
  3. Make a list of gratitudes. This is one we at Vérité Woman can testify to its powers to heal. When you’re feeling a surge of insecurities about your self worth, ability to achieve, or attract love whip out a journal or your phone notes and make a list of all of the things that you love about who you are (a very important step to meditate on), things you made happen (big or small) that make you happy, and things you have attracted: got that job you wanted, made amazing friends that you love and look up to, most importantly gratitude for the beautiful life you’ve built yourself. This list will immediately make you glow, and put into perspective that your good energy and high-level of worth made these wonderful things come to fruition.
  4. Unfollow, unfollow, unfollow. Social media is one of, if not the largest source of feeling inadequate in our modern day. We allow this tool that is meant to be a source of inspiration to be a source of pure mental plague. Unfollow all the accounts that do not serve you, or the people who make you feel lesser — it’s not thinspiration, it’s sickness. This makes room for accounts and people that leave you happier and more whole.
  5. Forgive yourself! We hate when others teaching self-love say “accept who you are” because we believe you are always changing, growing, learning in an upward trajectory. However, instead we say forgive yourself — it’s too much weight to carry around the guilt you feel from past actions, or the bruises you dolled out from being too hard on yourself. When you’re feeling these pasts plaguing you just repeat I forgive you as your mantra until it passes. But most importantly while you say these words to yourself meditate on believing them. With habit, the words will become reality.

Outside:
These tools address your physical self —that body that has taken so much abuse from others and yourself.

  1. Treat your body like it belongs to someone you love. Romance it, pamper it — face masks may not be the key to self-care but the action of caring for works wonders. Act like your body is a relationship you are in and have to consistently cultivate, because guess what, you do.
  2. Find beauty in who you are — This should be apart of your Gratitude List (see above). Describe in depth the force in your curves that demand attention, the clarity of your eyes that see the best in people. You can choose to keep this in the same place as your gratitude list, and your list of defining beauty traits to reference when needed.
  3. Self portraiture. This, for some might be the most difficult step in this process — so many feel a veil of shyness hide their true charisma once a camera focuses on them. When you’re all by yourself set up a camera, the self timer on your phone, or even just go to selfie mode. Spend time documenting what you look like when it’s just you. Document varying emotions if you want to take the project that far — when you have tears running down your face, when you are smiling at the camera, when you feel sexiest. Take hundreds if you have to. It may sound like a whole bunch of time wasted on vanity, but in fact it is a wonderful healing exercise into seeing yourself from an outside view. Look at these photos as if you are a stranger finding splendor in this confident woman. Soon you will start to believe in her, and become her.

Unlocking Self Love: Everyone Wants Know How, We Have Key!

Unlocking Self Love: Everyone Wants To Know How, And We Have The Key! | Now on VERITE WOMAN, how to learn self love, how to have confidence, how to feel good about yourself, how to stop being depressed, how to have confidence at work, how to have confidence in relationships, how to manifest love, spirituality, feminism.Self love. Two words that we’ve found to be a hefty concept, but often elusive, just out of ones reach. Everyone wants to know how, we have the key! Well, actually you have the key too, you just don’t know it yet. We read philosophical texts, pulled from personal experience, and studied up — all to get deep into the root of the idea, What is self love? And further how do we teach it? Finally, we think we’ve got it, and we’ve packaged it up nicely to deliver to you just in time for the fresh canvas that is 2018.
We figured if we’re dealing with an idea that could vary from woman to woman, culture to culture we should introduce exactly our intentions with this whole self love thing, and what we would like to achieve: An uninterrupted peace. Think of the sound of an ethereal high-note being sung, if something interrupts the note’s trajectory it is no longer as beautiful, but if it meets its highest potential and holds there we are impressed, we lap up the sensory beauty. Even more-so, if many enchanting voices join in they do not take away from the first, it becomes a choir — overwhelming us with its brilliance. This is our goal for you! For us! For women! Uninterrupted confidence and self-worth, and soon when we all find it the female whole becomes this choir — stronger and more impactful together.
In our research we found a few key notes of repeating elements that spanned time periods and ideologies, at first glance they may seem simple enough but the truth is there’s nothing easy about self work. The first idea that we want you to take through all the rest is this: To find a true place in self love one must separate themselves from their physical self, their ego self, and their mental self.

Unlocking Self Love: Everyone Wants To Know How, And We Have The Key! | Now on VERITE WOMAN, how to learn self love, how to have confidence, how to feel good about yourself, how to stop being depressed, how to have confidence at work, how to have confidence in relationships, how to manifest love, spirituality, feminism.The Physical Self:
We know this sounds like a drastic cutting of ties but allow us to explain:
As women we have felt wars against our bodies our whole lives. Whether you realize they impacted you or not. Each little bullet of suppression, sexism, and abuse is worn like invisible scaring on our flesh. They become beliefs in us: we aren’t attractive enough to feel love, we are only a trophy to be shown off, we are only worthy of being someone’s booty call. We often say we are manifesting a better life for ourselves, but while you wear those scars you will only attract more wounds. You are not your body. This is just a vessel you were given to achieve what you needed on this Earth, and to learn a few things along the way. Once you can separate yourself from the physical body that feels these battles against it you can be truly free.

The Ego Self:
Your ego self may be the most detrimental of them all. This is the part of us that keeps us down out of sheer pride. It doesn’t want you to love yourself because it wants you to stay curled up under the covers, safe, with a tub of ice cream – just you and Ego. It’s the self that won’t let you share a photo of your stretch marks on social media because it says “Ew, people don’t want to see that, the world says that’s not what beauty is.” We say tell Ego to fuck right off. Once you can separate yourself from the Ego that keeps you small you can be truly free.

The Mental Self:
This one’s tricky, because here at Vérité Woman we say your mind is your most important weapon, and it is! But that’s your well-fed, well-tended to mind. The mental self that you need to sever a relationship with is the one that spirals. The one that is constantly attaching itself to tiny scenarios and making them into Broadway plays. Once you realize you are not the mental part of you that can sabotage a good hair day in under three seconds, or control your self-worth with self-fulfilling prophecies you can truly be free.
What’s left you might wonder, now that we’ve taken away all the things you have, until now, thought to make up your identity.

The Soul:
Let us just preface this by saying we are in no way trying to define for you the meaning of The Soul in religious or spiritual terms, but this is how we have come to refer to our Other Self. This Soul is the purest form of you from birth, how you come into the world. This part of you is not yet affected by outside sources that we as humans are so malleable to — those that shape your ego, how you feel about your body, your insecurities. It still lives amongst your other selves and surfaces in times of pure inhibition. It is the highest goal to one day live in this state. The part of you that is not what you know, what you look like, or what you’ve become through pain and gain — it’s the part of you that laughs with a snort, stops at every other flower to take a photo, that sings without noticing while stuck in traffic — it’s the purest you. She possesses an uninterrupted peace.

Why Glossier’s Body Hero Will Actually Empower Your Shower Experience.


Why Glossier's Body Hero Will Actually Empower Your Shower Experience. NOW ON VERITE WOMAN --- Body Hero, Body Positive, Female Figure, Skincare, Hypoallergenic, Gynecologist tested, Emily Weiss, Paloma Elsesser, Swin Cash, Tyler Haney, Pia Arrobio, and Mekdes Mersha, Self love, how to be confidant, Instagram, Feminism. Let’s be honest, it was all about the hype. Glossier drops a new product, we flock. Yep, we’re talking about Glossier’s Body Hero. Only, once  we popped that bubbly pink packaging open we realized this is the kind of hype we can get behind. It felt like something special to be apart of. We’ve often wondered what’s in the magic sauce that catapulted the rose quartz (capital) G from cool-girl status to cult status. It all comes down to Glossier’s talent for shedding the layers, and getting to the flesh of what Millennial women truly want. Literally and metaphorically of course.

Maybe you haven’t stepped outside lately to be faced with a billboard, or scrolled through IG, or even used the internet and accidentally caught a banner ad in your peripherals. Glossier recently launched a campaign to accompany their latest body products, a frothy yet creamy yet oily body wash and lotion duo called Body Hero. The campaign featured lady-icons of the social media age in nothing but a state of nature.Why Glossier's Body Hero Will Actually Empower Your Shower Experience. NOW ON VERITE WOMAN --- Body Hero, Body Positive, Female Figure, Skincare, Hypoallergenic, Gynecologist tested, Emily Weiss, Paloma Elsesser, Swin Cash, Tyler Haney, Pia Arrobio, and Mekdes Mersha, Self love, how to be confidant, Instagram, Feminism. This is why our love for this product duo is two-fold. First it was banding together with our fellow sisters in the name of happy, healthy skin and a body-positive message. Then we hopped in our showers, lathered up, and realized that this product dup actually does what it promises. The reason it works so well? They yet again nailed the basics of what we truly want in our products:

The Daily Oil:

  • This body wash has got all our favorite oils such as coconut, sunflower seed (vitamin E, baby) and sesame that naturally soothes and plumps skin
  • The Daily Oil is gynecologist tested, and vagina approved!

The Perfecting Body Cream:

  • After your stint in the shower, this body cream locks in moisture that will stay with you all day
  • The cactus flower, yucca, and prickly pair extract is what makes this such a long lasting hydrator, regardless of environment
  • It leaves a velvety, never greasy finish

Along with the launch, each of the campaigns women posted to her social fronts, authentically sharing her own struggle with body love. In turn they reminded us that no woman (regardless of how many followers she might have on Instagram) is unscathed by the downers of body insecurities. It’s the prompt that every time we open our bathroom cabinet says “Be gentle with yourself.”

Why Glossier's Body Hero Will Actually Empower Your Shower Experience. NOW ON VERITE WOMAN --- Body Hero, Body Positive, Female Figure, Skincare, Hypoallergenic, Gynecologist tested, Emily Weiss, Paloma Elsesser, Swin Cash, Tyler Haney, Pia Arrobio, and Mekdes Mersha, Self love, how to be confidant, Instagram, Feminism. And A few of our other favorite Glossier products:

Moisturizing Moon Mask:

This hydrating mask really sets the bar high. Almost a daily ritual, for girls living in tough cities this will be your end of day retreat. It is so calming, and non-intrusive you lay it on and practically forget it’s there. The longer you leave it, the more it seems to reset dry skin breathing new life into tired pores. We’ve shared our love for honey as an ally of healthy looking skin, and it just happens to be one of the main ingredients in this product.

Boy Brow:

Perfecting the art of the brow. A game we all played for far too long, until Boy Brow hit the internet and we could all stop over-coiffing those above-eye-caterpillars. Boy brow is an everyday tool that will comb out those brows, add a little shape and shade while doing so. You’re left with a look that says laissez faire, when really it was Glossier.

Haloscope:

As die hard highlighters, this one takes the cake on glossy, glowy skin. Throw away those conturing tools, and make space for this stick to deliver a dew that quite literally finds your light for you. We’re super into Quartz for a rosé look.

Invisible Shield SPF:

If you’re an avid Vérité reader you know how important our SPF is. Glossier took their time to really scan the market for what worked, and what really didn’t only to turn around and create possibly the best SPF out there. That’s not just by our standards, it’s an internet favorite!
