Be Uniquely You


“Embrace what makes you different.” -Dumbo

Growing up in Florida it was constantly pointed out to me that my skin was different. I am pale, white, freckled. I’ve been called Casper, I’ve had remarks made by complete strangers on the beach, and even now as an adult living in Wisconsin I get occasional remarks. It used to bother me. I didn’t want to be different. But this is me and my skin is beautiful because it is a part of who I am.
Beauty isn’t your skin color, your hair, your makeup, or any other physical feature. Beauty is your heart, your mind, and being comfortable in your own skin.
“Beauty shouldn’t be about changing yourself to achieve an ideal or be more socially acceptable. Real beauty, the interesting, truly pleasing kind, is about honoring the beauty within you and without you. It’s about knowing that someone else’s definition of pretty has no hold over you.” -Golda Poretsky

On Personal Style

“Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are.” -Chinese Proverb

I am a firm believer in being true to YOU in every aspect of life, including your exterior self. When it comes to getting dressed in the morning, my motto is “wear what you like.” I don’t dress for anyone else other than myself. “What do I feel most myself in, most comfortable in, what represents me as I am on the inside?” Those are the questions I subconsciously pose to myself each morning. Because where’s the fun in dressing how someone else expects you to dress? What outfit makes you feel most like YOU?
