Make A Note Monday: Selfies Can Redefine Beauty

So the other day I ran across this Dove campaign on my Facebook timeline and it made me cry (which we all know is not the biggest feat) however it just touched me so much. Maybe it’s because I have a friend who in a roundabout way is doing this very thing at this very moment in order to appreciate herself and the way she looks. She’s actually taking a selfie a day and I have really enjoyed looking at her pictures thus far!!!

I remember what it was like in middle school and high school and to know that I didn’t fit into that “beauty” mold left me devastated and I hated myself for a very long time so to see someone go in and talk to these girls about being beautiful no matter what they look like and how their selfies that highlight they’re insecurities can redefine what is beautiful I just lost it!! I felt like for them their eyes were opened and they realized that all the things they hated about themselves is exactly what made them beautiful and unique and dare I say different!!! It definitely makes me appreciate my body that much more!! So I hope you, my precious and wonderfully beautiful reader can take a selfie and truly love it (without a million re-dos)!! Be encouraged because you were fearfully and wonderfully made!

Head Shoulders Knees & Toes…

So those of you who are my Facebook friends or who follow me on Twitter may have noticed (or maybe not) that I started a new blog… Why on earth would I start another blog if I already talk about so many different things on this blog… well it’s simple… I had to. Yup that’s right, I had to start a blog for a school assignment… and although many of my classmates will probably give up on their blogs after this semester is over… I intend on keeping my blog going. So what is this new blog about you ask??? Simple, Natural Hair and Fashion!!!

Two things that I love and sometimes hate in one place… I don’t think it will ever get deeper than different shades of purple… not that this here blog always has something for you to chew on… but in my new blog which you can check out here. it mostly talks about my struggles with my hair; my journey to find a style that I can be happy with and it will mention things about fashion that I am loving and maybe even some beauty things as well. I really want to do a bunch of copy cat/looks for less posts but I think I’ll have to wait until the summer time to get those going… but we’ll see… Feel free to go take a look, leave a comment, or some advice, or just a kind word of encouragement…

I’m Thankful For Good Hair Days

Well, it may seem a bit shallow but today I am thankful for good hair days and today is one of those days for me… I don’t know what it is about a good hair day for a woman to feel extra beautiful… I mean she could be wearing sweats and sick to her stomach but if her hair is cute she will instantly feel better about herself. It happens to me all the time! Today I had a good hair day and it made me feel extra beautiful! Every time I see it, it makes me smile, and smiling makes me feel great, when I feel great I want to make others feel great and is there anything really wrong with that? Of Course not! I hope that you all will have a good hair day sometime this week because you deserve to feel as special and beautiful as I do right now!!
