Hey guys, so recently I’ve been thinking about doing this post again. I published a body confidence post back in 2016, when I first started my blog. I started reading it and I thought to myself, you’re in such a different mind set then you were 3 years ago and I kind of wanted to share how I feel about it to this day. Granted I still have some of the same thoughts about it but I think I know more and feel like I can share more of what I have learned through the last 3 years. With all that being said, that is what Im going to be talking about today. B O D Y  C O N FI D E N C E. But first, what does it mean to you? Body confidence can mean so many things to so many different people. With internet now and days I feel as if we have to look a certain way. Looks, Style, etc. It’s all bullsh*t really. It can be hard for anyone, making you overthink about your appearance and it shouldn’t be that way. But it’s funny because there is also this other side of social media where  you are seeing more and more people show confidence and all body types. The internet is a crazy, weird place and it can mess with your mind. In the last few years I came to conclusion that I don’t want to follow these influencers, who to me are unrealistic. Personally I like to follow women and men who are real and raw with their followers and show you that there is more than 1 kind of body type out there. If you have some cellulite, stretch marks, rolls whatever it is, it’s okay and NORMAL AND BEAUTIFUL . We’re all HUMAN. It’s refreshing to see real and genuine influencers. Im stating this for anybody. If you are someone who is into fitness YOU F*CKING GO, if you’re somebody who isn’t, again you F*KCING GO. Everyone should love themselves no matter what and everybody goes through insecurities. You can be super fit and still not like something about you. Everyone is beautiful in their own way and more people need to accept that. If someone can’t accept you for who you are and how you look then throw them out of your life because that negativity shouldn’t be welcomed! Surround yourself around those who lift you up and make you feel comfortable and confident within yourself. Now lets’ talk  about confidence with fashion. When it comes to fashion I think I’ve done a pretty good job with wearing what I feel confident in. I wear clothing pieces that I love and that I think is cute and my style. I think everybody should be that way. If you like that top but are to afraid what people will think, get that mindset out of your head, Put that top on and when you wear it you wear It with confidence! Because in reality nobody is starring and thinking that, it’s all in your head. Trust me I think we’ve all been there. I know I have and if we are being honest I still do sometimes but hey im human right? Just like you. It’s funny how wearing clothing items with confidence can change your mindset. If you were to ask me 3 years ago if I liked wearing shorts I would laugh and say HELL NO. Why? because I wasn’t confident enough and I hated the way I looked. My legs are probably one of my biggest insecurities about myself but just like I have been talking about, I changed the way I thought about myself. I wear things with confidence and it has helped me so much in so many ways. It doesn’t happen over night. It takes a lot within yourself to WANT to change your mindset and how you view things. It is a lot easier said than done but trust me you’re not alone and there are so many other things to worry about than other peoples opinion. Shoot I may be pale as heck and don’t have the “best” looking bod but I’m working on myself everyday and my confidence has boosted X1000 these last few years and it feels good to say that.  YOU GOT THIS. YOU’RE BEAUTIFUL. YOU AREN’T ALONE. All bodies are good bodies.

Festival season is here and sadly I’m not going but that doesn’t mean I can’t put up a festival blog post! I’ve wanted to post something like this for awhile and this year i’m finally getting around to do it! This post is going to be all about some Hairstyle and Fashion inspiration for festivals! I also decided to do a little twist on it, so instead of showing you the hairstyles on myself I wanted to involve my friends in it so I decided to do some of the hairstyles on them. I just thought that might have been fun to do. Getting my friends on my blog and also I just love doing updos on other people! I decided to throw a country and a few coachella inspired fits. These are just some outfits I feel like I would wear if I were going to any of these festivals. To me, if I feel confident then im going to fucking wear it. I may not have the perfect body type for some of these fits but hey if I feel good in it then who cares what anyone thinks?! We all get caught up with social media and see all these “perfect” models in these outfits and think we have to look that way in order to wear a certain thing, FALSE. Be C O N F I D E N T and screw others who think otherwise. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. I hope you enjoy seeing this post, I definitely had fun putting it all together! Thank you for always supporting me and I will see y’all very soon!!!!

I guess I’m another year older now and its freaking weird!!!! I also can’t believe its been a year since I posted my 23rd birthday blog post. But here I am with my 24th birthday!!! I had so much fun this past weekend getting to celebrate with my best friends in San Diego again. I always have a blast hanging out with these girls, they make life so fun and spontaneous. I don’t know what i’d do without this group in my life. Finding friends who understand you and know how to make you happy and stick with you through thick and thin are so rare to find. I appreciate the ones who have stuck around. Kinda surprised they all have honestly hahaha. But we all are a good time I mean who wouldn’t want to hang with us?? Anyways, Thank you to anyone who wished me a Happy Birthday and thank you to those who celebrated with me. Im so happy I could cry… Okay enjoy these few pictures I got this weekend. A little glimpse of what my weekend consisted of. LOL

So I follow a lot of bloggers on instagram and one in particular posted a blog post on being happy being single. It really stood out to me and I loved her concept on it so I decided I wanted to do a similar post. With Valentines day being today, or well whenever you’re reading this, It could be hard for some of us single people lol. Honestly to me though Valentines Day is just another day. I think its a stupid holiday! Like why take 1 day out of the year to show somebody you love them, shouldn’t that be everyday??? I don’t know, to me I think people and stores and tv or whatever it is, they hype it up to much. Soooooo with all that being said here are a few things that people who are single should think about! Being single ain’t all that bad (;

______________________________________________________________________________

Embrace Being Single

Why not embrace it? Take this time to focus on YOURSELF. I think people tend to forget that in order to be happy in a relationship you should be happy with yourself first. Go shopping by yourself, take drives alone, watch movies alone. Take this opportunity to make improvements for yourself.

Don’t look back

Move forward and not backwards. If someone broke your heart let them go. They don’t deserve you or your time. Its taken a lot for me to understand that to. But I’ve learned that if someone wastes my time I don’t need to be wasting my time or energy on them trying to fix things because they don’t deserve it. You shouldn’t have to look back and think what could have gone differently. You’ll learn who really cares for you and wants nothing but to bring happiness into your life. Not play games with you. When you get the courage to move forward you’re helping yourself in the long run. And let me tell you its a damn good feeling when you do!

Focus on the good

I read a little quote that had this saying in it and I loved it. You should focus on the good. Think about the good things in your life. Its a good feeling when you’re not constantly worrying about someone else or what they think when you’re out with friends. You don’t have to wait for someones approval. Focus on being happy and living your best life being single! Now i’m not saying it’ll be a bad thing when someone awesome comes along but for right now in the moment FOCUS ON THE GOOD!

You’re not alone

You are not the only one my friend!! Being single on valentines day and constantly being reminded how single you are, yeah i’m right there with you but so are many many people!! Its okay and like I’ve said a million times embrace it. There are days where it gets to me and makes me sad but I quickly dig myself out of that hole and take in that I have a group of friends that I love and i’m surrounded by many loved ones. And so are you.

______________________________________________________________________________

So yes being single can suck sometimes I get it!! Go listen to some happy songs on spotify, buy yourself a bottle of wine and order some dang pizza on this lovers day if you are spending it alone because honestly… I think thats exactly what im going to do lol. I love you guys and I will see you very soon for my BIRTHDAY post!!!! Happy Valentines Day<3

XO

Another year is here yet again. I honestly can’t believe it is already 2019. Time just keeps flying by and I cant keep up lol. I wanted to share a few things that I want to work on In this new year. Now for me “new years goals” is just so overrated. Just because its a new year doesn’t mean you need to always start over and no matte what day or what month it is you’re allowed to set new goals and accomplishments for yourself. That is one thing I want to work on this year.

______________________________________________________________________________

Working on me for me

This year I want to focus a lot on my health and mentality. I tend to stress ALOT and for being a 23 year old I stress way more than I should lol. Im trying to find more activities or hobbies that keep my brain occupied so im not focusing on one thing and stressing myself out. It is hard but I know it can be done. Second is working hard to be a healthier version of myself. I think I will always struggle with body confidence just like every other human being on this planet. I sure as hell have come a long way with it though and now I could care less what others think of me but this year I just want to focus on being healthy and confident.

Working smarter not harder

I have been very blessed with finding the salon of my dreams last year. I enjoy so much about my job and in this new year I want to work even more on my business. I think sometimes I take a little advantage with it because I am my own boss now and days but I want to work a little harder and build up my clientele. Working on my skills and STOP doubting myself.

No settling

In the last year I got myself out there again in the whole “dating” world and let me tell you in taught me A LOT lol. A lot about myself and a lot about people. One of my friends kept telling me “Danielle do NOT settle” and I was just blowing it off like i’m not, i’m not. But I knew I was and I know I deserve so much more. I know my worth and I know what I really deserve. I want to work on that more. Open myself up to people who only deserve it and not let them take advantage of my kindness. Whether that is with relationships, friendship, etc.

More Traveling

This is something I tell myself I want to ever new year if i’m being honest lol. I love to travel, whether its an hour away or it takes 2 days I love it. So this year I want to save more money and spend it on traveling. I definitely did more than I usually do last year and this year I want to top that. Plus it will definitely give me an excuse to take cute pictures and do more blog post! LOL

Focus more on blogging

I have been saying this since I launched this website hahah. But for reals THIS YEAR I will actually do it and listen to myself! If i’m being completely honest I get stuck and I never know what I want to post. But I think I just need to find my niche and roll with it. I know I can do it and stop being lazy about it. This is one of my hobbies I love doing so she needs to stop being put to the side!!!

Be Happy

Last but not least, I just want to be happy. Not that i’m in a bad place or anything. I have an amazing life with amazing people in it. Im very grateful for the things I get to do and the things I have and my health. But I just want to keep that up and work on myself. I love doing ME for ME. Good things take time and I know GOD is on my side. I never really speak about my relationship with god but I know he takes the lead in my life. He gives me opportunities I need and obstacle courses I need to get around to make me stronger. Good things take time and I have learned that through the years.

______________________________________________________________________________

So with all that being said those are just a few things I wish to accomplish in this new year. Heres to 2019 people!!
