Dress To Impress…Yourself

Hey all! Decided to try out something different and went with a video. Sometimes we need to give ourselves permission to shine! Not to impress anyone or to show off, but just because it feels good. Beauty and style does the body good…be a rock star!!!

I recently celebrated my birthday and I did things a little differently. I didn’t realize the impact it would have on me and everyone could see I was glowing.  I share a little about my experience and how I felt out celebrating.


What you don’t know is, that day it was raining and I planned a rooftop party! Even though I wanted to change my mind and wear jeans instead, I stuck to my vision of seeing myself look like a star. I’m glad I didn’t change clothes. The rain slowed down and it really didn’t make an impact on what I was wearing at all.  It also lifted my spirits when I went to the bathroom and saw how nice it was to see myself in a dress.

In the end it’s not about the dress or the heels or even the makeup. It’s about how you feel as a woman. Too often we don’t get to embrace the fullness of how that feels since we all have busy lives and play many roles day-to-day. We get lost in it all and lose touch with that feeling of beauty, sensuality, and femininity. It’s empowering and inspiring to others.

We actually need to feel beautiful as much as possible. After this experience, I now create that feeling everyday in some way. Whether it’s by wearing a special bracelet I cherish, putting on the fancy perfume,  or wearing a bold lipstick, I try to make myself feel adorned and beautified. It reminds me that I don’t need to wait for anyone else to make me feel special or beautiful. I don’t need a reason or permission.  I don’t need to put a ton of effort into it or make it reach some type of standard. It is whatever makes me shine.
