Is this shirt not to DIE for? The detail is so amazing! I’m wearing a medium but I could have worn a small too, I don’t think I even tried it on. For 20% off your entire purchase at Recycled Consign & Design use the code “twistmepretty”.
A couple days ago I received a terrible review on Amazon for my first hairstyle book. I’ve had bad reviews before and it’s no big deal, I like a good honest review like the next person. This one though felt more like an attack on me as a person and less on the actual book. I wanted to throw my phone against the wall and just cry. Then I read it again. And for some reason I started to feel less sorry for myself and more sorry for the women who had taken time out of her day to be so negative and cruel. I know who I am, what I am and who I represent and it was silly of me to get so frustrated with someone who doesn’t even know me. But honestly, some people you guys!
It is so important that you believe in yourself. Acknowledgement from others is beautiful. It’s motivating and inspiring and sometimes it means the world. But at the end of the day you’re the one that needs to be okay with the things you’ve done, the lives you’ve touched and the people you’ve either uplifted — or not. Don’t let the mean girls of the world strip you of your confidence. Don’t let other people tell you what to think, what to wear, or even how to style your hair. You are beautiful just the way you are. “Don’t be like the rest of them, Darling”. Believe in yourself because then, then no one can touch you. No one can tell you you’re fat or too skinny or too tall or that your smile is too big. No one can defeat you because you believe in yourself, you’re strong and you know exactly who you are. I would hope that we can all use our lives, our words and actions for good. To inspire, to help, to motivate, to encourage and to uplift. Heaven knows this life is hard enough.
Thank you so much for your kind comments and sweet friendships. I feel like I have thousands of people around the world giving me huge giant hugs and I feel so lucky to be a part of your lives.
