Self Image

Let's be honest, there isn't a single person in the world who hasn't had a moment or two of self doubt. It's pretty damn hard to just ignore society's of beautiful. It can make you feel so inferior to the rest of the world.
I was recently chosen to be a part of a photoshoot for local stores and boutiques by the same lovely lady who took my header and profile pictures. And while I am so excited to play dress up and model for a day, I can't help but worry that the other girls will be skinnier, or prettier, or just plain better than me.
I spent a decent half hour FREAKING OUT about it and trying to plan my meals and exercises etc, until I pulled myself together and went onto pinterest to find some body positivity nuggets.
And I came across this gem:

Hell yeah I am, Sam Weir! 

I know that growing to love my body won't be an instant thing. It might be a never ending process.. But keeping little quotes like this in mind helps to ease my anxiety around my body image.

I was recently gifted over 10 books dealing with fashion and personal style from my mother. Her taste in clothing is incredibly unique, yet so her. That is something that I have always admired. I'm hoping that by reading the same books that she read at my age (some of them date back to the 70s!) that my knowledge of fashion will increase as well as my sense of self. 

The stack of books can seem quite daunting, but I figure if I read one at a time whenever I have time, I might get through it relatively quickly...

I am not passionate about many things, but fashion is becoming an exception. And it is so exciting!
