Growing up I didn’t care for my side profile.
I had a flat face or a pie face as I was teased lol. At 27, I remember saying “I am sick and tired of picking myself apart.” Went back natural and haven’t looked back.
I intentionally picked those parts I had a problem with and chose to accentuate it, accept it and love it.
More side pics of that flat face.
Bright red lipsticks for my full lips.
And smile as often as I can with my gap.
It was all in my head, literally, vanity.
No one was even concerned about my flaws like I was or I was too unbothered to notice by then. That same thinking has carried me through motherhood and this new body.
Its really easy to pick apart all the things that are wrong with you, lose a little weight here, nip and tuck there but even easier to just embrace it.
Make it yours.
There only one you.
At 40 I see some shit just ain’t gone change.
Genetics. But in this millennial world I have relating cliches…live tour best life!
You’ve got people depending on it Mama!
God don’t make no mistakes. Your flaws are your purpose whether it be to change them or flaunt them in all their beauty.
You are the ONLY thing that will is consistent throughout your entire journey in life. So you better like yourself.
I say all that to say side profiles make my shit look fly-er!!
I make jewelry to and this was a customer request.
