Self-Care from the Inside Out


I have proudly proclaimed in the past that I am not a girly girl. If you catch me on any given day, I am in yoga pants and a t-shirt. I wear my hair in a bun, I bite my nails – I know disgusting….but I bite them pretty…I swear! I can get ready in 15 minutes flat on any given morning and that includes my shower. No judging! This weekend out of all places (church retreat) I had an aha moment. I discovered that the reason why I don’t put much effort into my appearance is because I never thought I had time to. So this past weekend a Pastor’s wife and Fashion Goddess in my book schooled me. She gave me some quick fashion tips…and voila I was inspired to blow dry MY OWN hair for the first time in 40 years, I learned how to layer jewelry, and most importantly I learned that if I invest an extra 10 minutes to my self-care a day…that I can look pretty hot without much effort. And there “ain’t” nothing wrong with that!

Ladies, if you are skilled on dressing up the outside, please make sure the inside is also just as sexy. This powerful cocktail is not only good for head tilting, but it truly embodies self-care to the highest degree; and when you can do that for yourself, you will inspire other women to do the same without the shame of thinking that physical self care is for superficial reasons only. I am converted. I think Kenia’s fashion beast has been unleashed. To be continued….
