Hi guys! Happy Humpday!
I’m very excited to share this post with you because starting next week I will start using a better camera… Boy, you are going to love the new pics! This has me extra happy because even though there are other girls out there still with better pics than me, if I look back and compare to my old self and my posts from a year back, this is a HUGE step towards the right direction. YAY!
Remember my post New Year’s Resolutions? I talk about stop competing with others and start competing with yourself instead. That’s where I’m at right now. I started taking pics with my phone and now I’m using a DSLR camera that my friend Christine got for Christmas and I’m so so so grateful that she lets me use it 🙂
How about you? How’s your week going so far?
Mine’s good I guess. I’m not as busy as usual, which is nice because I needed a break from everything to catch up with a few things and errands. I’m painting my place and adding some finishing touches to make it look cute and cozy. This has me really excited. Taking care of myself and my apartment is something I needed to start doing in order to feel better.
For those who’ve met me in person, you know that I always strive to be kinder and that I love helping others. I consider myself to be a good person with my heart in the right place. I’m blessed enough to have amazing friends that are honest, supportive and loving. However, how they see me is not how I see myself and that’s something I’m working on this year, as a part of my New Years’ Resolutions. I’m way too hard on myself.
‘Start seeing yourself through the eyes of the people who love you’. This has been my daily mantra every time I think of something negative and not constructive about myself. I strongly encourage you to start repeating these words to yourself as well and let me know how it goes.
I remember the day we were shooting this post, I felt fat and ugly and hated my outfit… I almost didn’t want to take any pics but I had to, because the weather was not-so-bad and that’s something you have to take advantage of during winter in Chicago. I’m thankful that my friend Haisa pushed me to do it and she told me all these amazing things about myself and how I looked and I simply started to think, why I’m not seeing what she sees? It hit me, and I wanted to share the story with you.
Truth is, I’m glad she pushed me. I ended up loving these pics and this outfit. It’s easy to assemble, chic and I don’t know about you but I feel like a badass every time I wear a leather jacket! I live in dark colors and neutrals and I love playing with them, like wearing all at the same time like I did here hahaha. Plus, a hat always adds that extra something to any outfit. It’s an immediate upgrade, so try it out.
Well guys, thank you so much for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your week. Don’t forget to wear your leather jacket (real or imaginary) and feel like a badass and ready to take on the world every single day!
