FRIENDS!! Today is all about the self-love movement supporting @kateupton – she’s on a mission to empower women to be confident and love ourselves as we are! In support, I am posting a raw and real selfie – no makeup, no filters (but good light…only because, I mean…photographer here 🤷🏻‍♀️).

I have a confession to make…it took me a long time to convince myself to post this no makeup, unfiltered photo. Don’t get me wrong, I look like this most of my days behind the scenes, but it’s different when it’s posted online. You get me?

My biggest insecurity has always been the quality of my skin. I have suffered from severe acne since I was younger and, thanks to my skin tone, hyperpigmentation. I deal with not only the discomfort of acne but also the scarring. Because of this, I’ve always disliked seeing myself in photos.

In the endless pursuit of self-love and self-care, and with my friends @yeouthskincare they’ve helped me rediscover how to truly care for the skin we have. Hydrated skin is happy skin, which is where 100% Pure Medical Grade Hyaluronic Acid comes into play! As my skin matures, I need all the help I can get!

It’s a small step in my self-love journey and I only hope to take more steps along the way! Friends, I encourage you to share in this awesome, self-love movement and post your real and raw selfie! You are beautiful (inside and out), and you are loved. #sharestrong

This blog is always a work in progress. I started writing in 2009, so there are so many stories! In all things minimalism, I've been doing a bit of Spring cleaning and making updates to this site. I hope you enjoy.
