Back in my teenage years and my early twenties I used to OBSESS about my weight constantly. I thought about every teensy thing I ate, I worked out for hours a day and I hated my body. I thought about myself and my body and my eating so much that it really began to take over my life and make me so miserable. I realized what a selfish and useless thing I was doing with a perfectly good life. I realized that even though a few extra pounds had the power to make me feel so useless and unworthy, no one else I cared about cared a smidgen if I was super skinny or not. I had to change the way I thought but the change was so drastic I didn’t know where to begin. One of the biggest things that helped me change is when I started getting those obsessive thoughts I would immediately hop up and go do something nice for someone. It was really hard to stay in that rut when I was thinking about someone else. When I was done I felt accomplished and worthwhile. It was a small thing but it made a huge difference and overtime I really gained a much healthier relationship with my body (although I still struggle from time to time). I loved stumbling on this quote because I need to be reminded that I can use that strategy with anything that is bad and it will help turn it around.
I’m really picky with candle smells these days and I’m always searching for a yummy summer scent (fall scents are SO easy) so when I found this guy on sale I was pretty stoked. It just arrived today and ‘m not the least bit disappointed.
If you think you loved Emma Stone before, you will love her twice as much after you see this.
I need this dress. It is perfect for just about any occasion.
How do I get these nails!?
I love this makeup look and I’m thinking it might have to be my next tutorial, takers?
Have an amazing weekend!
