Have you ever looked in the mirror and asked yourself “who am I?'“ or “who have I become?” The year is coming to an end and I can’t help but to reflect on all the things that have happened over the past 345 days . I had a major health scare in April and quit my job in May. I began blogging full-time, which basically means I started my own business. I attended my first NYFW and was busy an booked the entire stay. I secured major collaborations with brands that I love. I was featured in several publications that mentioned me as a top influencer. All of these major accomplishments and I looked in the mirror several days a doubted my abilities. There were days that I questioned if I was capable of delivering and a few days when I wanted to give up. In these moments, I knew that I had to become honest and clear about what my intentions were and what I what I wanted my future to look like. A stripping down, so to speak. It’s not easy to be vulnerable, especially with yourself.
I read a quote recently that said “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” These words provided me so much perspective and the ability to give myself grace. Grace to make mistakes and the grace to allow myself to be happy and enjoy where I am in my life today.
Today, I am confident enough to relax, give myself a break and embrace what I’ve been through and what’s to come. Partnering with Bloomingdales, helped empower me to think differently about myself. Taking pictures in lingerie isn’t easy, just like life but once you find the beauty in it, it gets easier! Bloomingdales carries b.tempt’d by Wacoal pieces that are beautiful and I feel beautiful in them! I’ve never taken images in my skivvies but these made me feel confident enough to own it. Just like I plan on owning the year 2019! Cheers to looking great and feeling even better!
