Let’s face it… Sometimes you just have to face it.  As it turns out when we face the inside it’s easier to accept and love the outside.  But it starts with what’s going on~ on the inside.  What am I talking about here? Well I’m thinking about my face– which like the rest of the body changes as I grow in age.  I’ve noticed that it looks more chiseled around the perimeter, quite angular as opposed to rounder.  This also depends on the plus and minus of my weight, which fluctuates

the nadda dress is the new dress style There are so many good things to say about the Nadda dress, a creation by friend of a friend, Marcia Charles.  She dreamed up this unique silhouette to compliment any body type.  Her vision is the intersection between style and comfort for women of all shapes and all sizes.  The Nadda gets its name from the fact that it looks like a dress but it’s not.  It’s naada dress.  It’s not a dress.  The secret ingredient is found in the mechanics of the dress causing

fear of flying film Little animated short films are just too adorable.  You could often find the cutest ones before the main features like Finding Dory.  They not only pull on the heart’s strings but they are timeless because they cross every kind of boundary mankind has created among each other.  They speak to the human and even further they speak to all life.  This one, Fear of Flying, I found a few years ago and like all of them it’s hard to miss the always profound message and when I think of the sheer genius,

feel the feelings Breaking up is hard to do.  Breakups are hard in general, whether it is romantic, platonic, or any other kind of ic.  It just doesn’t matter they’re hard but it is part of life.  One of the hardest things for me to do is to write in real time.  And I know why.  It’s because it requires a vulnerable-fragile not-knowing-how-the-story-ends type of deal.  But today, today I will.  And today, as my heart just hangs from my chest cavity post breakup I will choose to feel the feelings.  Not

If we’re honest- by Francesca Battistelli If we’re honest is a beautiful song by Francesca Battistelli about love and truth.  It’s about the difficulty we sometimes experience in relationships, be it romantic or not, and that the truth is harder to admit, realize and vocalize.  We might not be consciously avoiding the truth because it can be painful or has been painful.  However, if we choose to go through it and grow through it we eventually find that it is the love found at the cross that heals us.  Sometimes when we

Sometimes it takes years to get comfortable in your skin, to stand out from the crowd and find the beauty in being yourself.  To get to that place where you’re sitting in the beauty of who are you are and who you are becoming– as you grow.  Without the comparisons, without the judgments, without fighting.  It takes courage to live in this world and be yourself, especially when you’re sitting uncomfortably in your difference trying to figure out who you are, especially when the popular thing is to follow the

It’s not something physical. – Sophia Loren ♥ A beautiful life begins with a beautiful heart. It’s an inside job first. – Diarra Yaw ♥ I’m not a stereotypically beautiful woman, and I’m so happy that I’m not. I’ve seen those ladies – the need to be attractive at all times is ghastly.

review: boy brow


Glossier’s boy brow After spending four months on the 10,000+ person waiting list I was finally able to get my hands on the much talked about and highly respected boy brow by Glossier.  A bit of transparency here aka my personal beauty hack, for the past few months I’ve been using my mascara to fill in my brows.  {insert gasp}  I also use the mascara to cover my grays. {gasp again} This means I have mascara for my lashes and mascara for my hair and brows.  This process was working
