This girl. For real, this girl right here. I'm pretty sure she is the ultimate role model for any and every girl in the whole world. She is beautiful and courageous and she's straight up real. To demonstrate, I browsed the web to find some pretty funny gifs and pictures of her all from the Oscars! (Stay tuned for my best dressed post coming soon!)
Before we get started though, I'd like to point out how gorgeous she was at the Oscars! She did the pixie cut right for red carpet with it slicked back and locked into place and kept her makeup light and simple. She exuded youthfulness once more by wearing the backwards necklace (maybe I'll do that in my next shoot!) and lastly... Here it comes... THE GOWN. Oh Dior you've done it again! Although she kept her youthful pieces (clutch, necklace, personality) her overall look had a matureness to it that I fell head-over-heels for and a lot of that has to do with the dress! The shape the dress creates is dire. I'm completely in love.
Anyway, on to why I love her so much via Oscar night GIFs and photos!
1. She enjoys playing hide and seek almost as much as I do.
2. She swats flies away like a boss... on live television... in front of millions.
4. She knows true humor when she sees it... or when she doesn't.
5. She gets embarrassed like you and me! Except she's still famous.
There you have it! My top five reasons I love JLaw just based on the Oscars.

Today I want to talk about the ever sensitive topic, Body Image. I'm going to be honest here... The way I look at myself has fluctuated over the years. There have been times where I can say that I've honestly felt beautiful at times; I'd look in the mirror and like exactly what I saw. However, there are other times when the mirror seems to amplify every imperfection. I'll be breaking out, my makeup is caked on, my clothes just aren't fitting right and my hair can do no right. Then I'll look closer and pick out every detail that I find wrong with my body.
It's hard to feel 100% confident with your body. There's always something you'll wish to improve on. We are exposed to countless airbrushed ads and unrealistic standards. We have to realize something though... We are beautiful. It's hard to come to terms with those three words, but it's true. We should be happy with how we look, despite our imperfections, which everyone does have.

I am so down for sporty fashion! I think it's one of the most overlooked styles to date, which is a complete bummer! I think of sporty as tomboy with a twist. Just because you and your b-ball shorts are connected at the hip doesn't mean that you can't wear a dress and still have a sporty feel to it. Take this dress for example; it isn't covered in flowers, there's no lace on it, no frills. It's complete with three bold colors and sleeves, yes, sleeves!
Tell below what your style is!
BEHIND THE SCENES: It was so windy when we were taking these pics.If I still had my long hair, you would have seen it swarming my face like a pack of gnats to rotting fruit. ...And that comparison right there is why I don't do comparisons.

Fashion week is finally here and I'm sick! I'm sneezing and coughing and sleeping and crying on the inside because I'm missing all the live fashion feed. From what I have seen, this outfit is mostly on point (Threw in a few Shelby perks!) for the fall 2014 season. I've seen a lot of black and print on the runway, which I am definitely down for! There's been more Martin look-a-like shoes (like the one's I'm wearing) strutting down the runway than in the past. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for sky high heels, but seeing functionality on the runway puts a smile on my face and inspiration in my head!

To be a fashion or a beauty blogger, you have to be the three B's; Bold, Beautiful and Brilliant. Eh, might as well make that four B's when you're talking about Jordan and just go on and throw
Bad-A** in there.
You guys might recognize Jordan from my trip to NYC when I helped out with Glam4Good; She was the super chic chick standing next to me in most of my pictures ;) Well, she's finally jumped on the blogging bandwagon I've been telling her to board on for so long!
Make sure, absolutely sure, to check out her new fashion blog, Jordan's Bow Blog. She might only have up two posts so far, but it looks as though she's been blogging for ages! No silly camera quality or wonky writing, just beautiful, fashionable pictures for you all to drool over.
If I may, You're Welcome.
