“Exercise what you can,spanx what you can’t and love the rest”-Joyce Meyer

What I want to discuss is self-confidence! Self Confidence is something we always throw around. Every fashion mag has an article on how to build it! Self confidence is something that YOU,yes YOU have to give to yourself. I like to think about self-confidence as a gift you give to yourself(and who doesn’t like gifts no matter who gives it to you!). Its call SELF…SELF confidence for a reason,the same as SELF ESTEEM. The reason so many of us(especially women) lack it is because you are waiting for someone to give it to you. Self Confidence doesn’t mean that you don’t have insecurities. We all have something that we don’t like or even hate about ourselves. Self confidence is this: you look in the mirror and think “ugh I’m so fat or ugh I hate my thighs But then say “o well it is what it is and walk out the door proudly”

You see it’s not about having to like who you are it’s about ACCEPTING who you are and presenting that energy to others-SELF CONFIDENCE!!If you hate yourself STOP IT!! Its one thing to not like your butt but when you hate your butt that’s a whole different level. Are you truly that disgusted with YOURSELF that you hate apart of YOUR body!? Its your body how can you hate something that’s YOURS!! It’s ok to be fat,skinny,dark or light skinned….ITS OK. We all fake having confidence it’s just that some of us have mastered the art of faking it by ACCEPTING it.

Low self-esteem,self-confidence I don’t understand why people even suffer from those illnesses(yes I consider it an illness because no matter what you find a problem with yourself). Listen to me darlings there is NOTHING on the market absolutely nothing that can’t solve your problem. If you don’t like your lips there’s  lipsticks that’ll plump your lips, you don’t like your height there are tips and tricks to give the illusion. You can find something no matter your price range!! If you don’t like what you look like change it…or at least buy the illusion that’ll change it!!!

This is why my motto is”Beauty is U!!”Beauty is you!!! People often try to associate beauty with natural beauty. Oh Please, honey listen if it takes some false lashes and butt shoots(yes those are real) to make you look and feel beauty then go ahead why not!C’mon women we know we don’t look like what we look like in the morning compared to when we go out on a date(LOL)! I’m sure some men will testify to that lol! So who cares, what one persons definition of beauty is,is another opinion! Be beautiful no matter what it takes!

Now I’d like to clarify something, once again if you hate yourself or some part of your body then there is nothing on the market or any type of surgery that will change that.You need to seek counseling or self evaluate why do you not like who you are. If you don’t like who you are how in the world do you expect someone else too!! Buying tons of makeup,beauty products and surgery will not hide what you feel. Dont hate who yourself honey! Darling you are stuck with you!! YOU are stuck with YOU whether you like it or not. Why not embrace who you are and accept what you can’t change,buy the illusion! Darling a man buys into the illusion. All you have to do is give him the illusion!! Stop trying to look like Beyoncé! Beyoncé doesn’t even look like Beyoncé by the time all the elements have come into play.

Here’s some advice, every woman looks good:

  • with long flowing hair
  • long flowing hair blowing in a fan
  • long flowing hair blowing in the fan walking in slow motion
  • long flowing hair blowing in the fan walking in slow motion with a car blowing up(i.e.fire) behind you
  • hair in updo or bun
  • hoop earrings(bigger the better)
  • with hair,makeup and nails done
  • with a tan(i.e. bronzer)
  • photoshop(i.e “editing”)
  • a good camera

So you get my point!Its an illusion world!Beauty is you darling. Whatever YOUR form of beauty is is OK. There are no rules to beauty only what people say,and I’ve learned from Jesus…popular opinion will get you in trouble,that’s what led Jesus to the cross!

Before I leave I hope that this blog has helped or maybe even set of some of you free the enemy called self rejection! I’d like to write a note to all fashion designers!!

DEAR FASHION DESIGNERS AND EVERYONE ELSE IN THAT INDUSTRY,

STOP WRITING BOOKS TELLING US(ESPECIALLY US WOMEN) HOW BEAUTIFUL WE ARE,HOW WE SHOULD EMBRACE WHO WE ARE AND LOVE OURSELVES WHEN YOUUUUU ARE THE SAME ONES PUTTING MODELS THAT ARE SKINNER THAN A SHOE STRING ON YOUR RUNWAYS!! EDITING PICTURES AND PRESSURING MODELS TO STARVE BECAUSE ANYTHING ABOVE A SIZE 4(or 6 in some causes) IS CONSIDERED”PLUS SIZE”!! YOU’VE MADE WOMEN HATE WHO THEY ARE SO WE CAN BUT YOUR BOOKS TELLING US THE OPPOSITE!!SEX DOES NOT SELL,NOT IN THE COSMETIC OR FASHION INDUSTRY BECAUSE THE AVERAGE WOMAN IS A SIZE TWELVE! WHY WOULD PUT A SIZE 2 MODEL IN YOUR COMMERCIALS WHEN YOU PLACE ORDERS FOR SIZE 12 AND UP TO HANG ON THE RACKS OF BELKS, MACYS,ETC!

COSMETICS ITS JUST LIPSTICK STOP RELATING IT TO SEX BECAUSE MOST WOMEN DONT EVEN WHAT TO KISS A MAN ONCE SHES DONE HER MAKEUP(LADIES YOU KNOW OUR SAYING:I JUST GOT DRESSED,I JUST DID MY HAIR,I JUST GOT OUT THE SHOWER,I JUST DID MY MAKEUP). IF THE PRODUCT DID HALF THE STUFF YOU SAY IT DID YOU WOULDN’T NEED SEX TO SELL IT!!

QUIT MAKING WOMEN FEEL BAD ABOUT NOT LOOKING LIKE WOMEN WHO DONT EVEN LOOK LIKE THE ADVERTISEMENT,

MAYBELLINE QUEEN

Remember my darlings “Beauty is U!!”
