Image is Everything

Today I want to talk about the ever sensitive topic, Body Image. I'm going to be honest here... The way I look at myself has fluctuated over the years. There have been times where I can say that I've honestly felt beautiful at times; I'd look in the mirror and like exactly what I saw. However, there are other times when the mirror seems to amplify every imperfection. I'll be breaking out, my makeup is caked on, my clothes just aren't fitting right and my hair can do no right. Then I'll look closer and pick out every detail that I find wrong with my body.
It's hard to feel 100% confident with your body. There's always something you'll wish to improve on. We are exposed to countless airbrushed ads and unrealistic standards. We have to realize something though... We are beautiful. It's hard to come to terms with those three words, but it's true. We should be happy with how we look, despite our imperfections, which everyone does have.

Sports is My Middle Name

I am so down for sporty fashion! I think it's one of the most overlooked styles to date, which is a complete bummer! I think of sporty as tomboy with a twist. Just because you and your b-ball shorts are connected at the hip doesn't mean that you can't wear a dress and still have a sporty feel to it. Take this dress for example; it isn't covered in flowers, there's no lace on it, no frills. It's complete with three bold colors and sleeves, yes, sleeves!
Tell below what your style is!


BEHIND THE SCENES: It was so windy when we were taking these pics.If I still had my long hair, you would have seen it swarming my face like a pack of gnats to rotting fruit. ...And that comparison right there is why I don't do comparisons.

Sunset Holmie

Fashion week is finally here and I'm sick! I'm sneezing and coughing and sleeping and crying on the inside because I'm missing all the live fashion feed. From what I have seen, this outfit is mostly on point (Threw in a few Shelby perks!) for the fall 2014 season. I've seen a lot of black and print on the runway, which I am definitely down for! There's been more Martin look-a-like shoes (like the one's I'm wearing) strutting down the runway than in the past. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for sky high heels, but seeing functionality on the runway puts a smile on my face and inspiration in my head!

Jordan's Bow Blog

To be a fashion or a beauty blogger, you have to be the three B's; Bold, Beautiful and Brilliant. Eh, might as well make that four B's when you're talking about Jordan and just go on and throw
Bad-A** in there.
You guys might recognize Jordan from my trip to NYC when I helped out with Glam4Good; She was the super chic chick standing next to me in most of my pictures ;) Well, she's finally jumped on the blogging bandwagon I've been telling her to board on for so long!
Make sure, absolutely sure, to check out her new fashion blog, Jordan's Bow Blog. She might only have up two posts so far, but it looks as though she's been blogging for ages! No silly camera quality or wonky writing, just beautiful, fashionable pictures for you all to drool over.
If I may, You're Welcome.
