Learning the importance of self-worth and self-love has been one of the best things to happen to me this year. I have always been a selfless person and tried my best to be that person that is making everyone happy. And while doing that is never a bad thing, it can be quite exhausting and tiring. So this year I’ve made a point to, for the first time in a long time, add myself to the list of people I’d like to make happy. Sometimes in life you can get distracted by people and things going on that you forget what your true purpose is and what genuinely makes you happy.
The first and most important step of Self Love to me is body image. There are so many times that I look at myself, and while knowing that I still have a lot to work on, I am so proud of myself. If you were to know me and look and how I looked and the way I carried myself, even just over a year ago…you would be too. I have been working on being confident in who I am and how I carry myself that it’s only going to get better from here. My goal in life has to always been to make people see the beauty that I see in them, to make people feel happy and special. Somehow along that path, I forgot about myself. But now that I am back and ready to make myself more of a priority, there is no room for criticism.
I purposefully decided to post these two photos for two reasons; the first being that the first image made me see how proud of my body that I am. No, it’s not perfect, but I am finally comfortable with it and will say that I look the best I’ve probably ever looked in my life. The second being, the second photo shows that I still have some work to do (or I could have just worn spanx lol). My point is this…I used to be so afraid of what people thought of me and while I knew what I needed to fix, I would let my fear of others thoughts stop me. Now that I am vocalizing it myself and learning to love myself more and more everyday, whatever others have to say about me cannot and will not stop me from getting to the place where I need to be. Being the happiest that I need to be, and channeling my inner Khloe Kardashian body that is somewhere deep down inside of my heart LOL.
I hope that this inspires you to love yourself a bit more everyday and be one of your biggest fans, because if you don’t love yourself…how do you expect someone else to?
Um super cute shoes for under $100…..sign me up!
Keeping today’s post short and sweet. Just sharing a few kicks on my list of wants!
Found these babies on Polyvore!
So if you haven’t caught on this post is obvi going to be about my infatuation with watches. Some on the already got it list and others on the lemme have it list!
Yes, I admit watches were once lame (you know with cell phones and all) but I’ve always rocked a cute little piece for my wrist. I used to not be so big on jewelry so that was my way of keeping up with the bling.
I have two brands that I always resort to when it comes to watches : Betsey Johnson & Michael Kors. I have been meaning to add a Marc by Marc Jacobs to my collection…but haven’t gotten there yet.
This is my everyday watch.
This is my every other day watch (when it matches).
These are my lemme have list:
So as some of you may or may not know…lately, California has been on some crazy weather tip. It was freezing most of last week. Then this weekend it was a whopping 80 degrees, and now it’s extremely overcast and cold again.
I say all this to say that I have the hardest time getting ready for work in the morning! I wake up and its freezing (since I’m on the bus and have to walk I need to dress warm). But then as the day goes on and the sun comes out, the degrees on my weather widget move from 50 to 80 in a matter of hours and I’m hot as can be in boots and a parka!
There is only one solution to this madness….layer it up!!
Once I came to this realization…life has been much easier! 🙂
I think we could all agree that Michelle Obama looked simply fabulous at the Inauguration of her husband, President Barack H. Obama.
But then again, when does she ever look bad? I love her fashion style. Classy and spunky, yet conservative. And her new hair cute is adorable!
Even their daughters dress well! The colors of their coats are right up my alley!
Oh yes, and Barack always looks sharp as well.
Congratulations Mr. President!
So one of the reasons I started this blog was to work on my graphic design and photography. In doing so I’ve taken it upon myself to recuit my friends to be my models (thanks in advance loves)
Hometown : Louisiana
Current City : West Hollywood
Imari started in our NY office as an intern while in school and our agency loved him so much that we brought him to LA…his new home. Since then we’ve become great friends!
Let me just tell you that he never has a dull day.
His hair is perfect.
His swag is flawless.
His personality is everything.
Currently working in the Creative Department he has big dreams…one fly fit at a time.
Dream Job : Director of Creative Services / Executive Producer
