"We are all of us stars, and we deserve to twinkle" - Marilyn Monroe

     I really feel like a woman when I wear a red lip. It makes me feel my most confident on insecure days. We all have them. Some days I don't feel 100%. Those days it takes a little extra to bring the light out of me. As far back as I can remember, I've always felt so beautiful wearing red lipstick. Like a model or movie star. Most of us have physical features we wish we could change about ourselves (i.e. I wish I was taller, a little curvier, and had smaller feet). I'm sure no one else sees these as flaws, however, these are insecurities I often have. But I've learned that what I can not change, I must accept and adjust. Not all of us have the luxury of plastic surgery to cover up those psychological wombs we have. We need to find those few (or more) things we absolutely LOVE about ourselves. I think my legs are FABULOUS and I take pride in that. I think my lips are the perfect shape for my face. I love these features about myself and I take any opportunity to show them off. It brings me confidence and NOBODY can take that away from me. Wear things that accentuate your best assets. If you have a thicker build, wear something that flatters those curves. If you think you're too short, show off those sexy legs. Love yourself. Exterior beauty isn't everything by any means, but it's important to feel good inside and out. And if one is off, the other falls behind. I always strive for that kind of balance in my life.
