"Nostalgia, it's delicate but potent. In greek, it literally means the pain from and old wound. It's almost like a twinge in your heart, far more powerful than memory alone." - D. Draper. I really like that quote even though it has nothing to do with this post. Enjoy loves.

isn't he sweet?

Peace and love,

You are beautiful!

The other night I was washing my face, brushing my teeth and getting ready for bed. I gazed at my reflection in the mirror; scrubbed clean face, crazy poofy hair, dark circles under my eyes and a slight smile stretching from the corners of my mouth because I was finally free of that residue on my face.Then it hit me, "I don't need makeup to be beautiful". I love myself from the inside out and I am just beautiful me. After all, what is the definition of beauty? Is it flat a flat stomach? long perfect hair? curvy hips? blue eyes? nice clothes? Actually the answer is none of the above. Beauty is feeling comfortable in your own skin and being content with who you are. Beauty is not labelled or classified, it is any one who has a good heart. I believe that too many girls these days are bullying themselves with hurtful words like "ugly" or "fat" and it is just too sad. So the other day I took a stand, I grabbed my camera took a picture and posted it to Facebook. I didn't care what people had to say because I am comfortable with who I am inside and out. Crazy enough the feedback was better than anticipated! What I am getting to here is that I think everyone should feel beautiful regardless of who you are, what your beliefs are, what you have done. YOU are beautiful and if anyone tells you otherwise just ignore them, they will find their inner beauty one day.

This is the picture,I know it's a self take but hey, it was night time. I know I shouldn't say this but I also uploaded to instagram and Christina Perri (Jar of Hearts) posted a picture of herself without makeup and I commented on how I did the same and she liked mine! Sorry if that came off as bragging it was just an exciting part of my day :)

On another note, Happy June!
Tell me one thing you love about yourself
Much Love,
