What is self love?

Next up to share on our series about self-love is the sweet Melissa!

To me self love is looking in the mirror and being able to say I like the person  looking back at me. There are going to be days when I look in the mirror and I’m going to love the person starring back at me. Days when my eyebrows are on point and my eyeliner is perfectly even. And that matte lipstick I had to wait 2 months to come in to stock looks so bomb. Days when I look in the mirror and just have to give a hair flick because I’m just so proud of the finished product that only took me 3 hours to accomplish.

But to me self love is also being able to look at the person starring in the mirror and say, it’s ok that I just gained back that 5 pounds it took me a week and a half to lose, because I decided it was necessary at the time to eat a large pizza to myself, and wash it down with a litre jug of chocolate milk.

Self love is going into a clothing store and trying on every single garment that tickles my fancy and not caring what the size on the tag says. Then realizing that it really was a great decision to eat that pizza because it just helped me fill out the booty in those jeans that I now can’t live without!

Self love is embracing that tummy that society tell us is undesirable, and rocking that cute two piece I just found online. It is being ok with the fact that I will never in my lifetime ever have a thigh gap, or lips like Kylie Jenner.

Self love is embracing the good, the bad, and the ugly. It’s not letting people tell me that I am less a person because I don’t look a certain way, or think a certain way. Self love is realizing my worth and potential, and that I am enough!

Self love is being empowered. It is having the courage to not only pick myself up, but others around me. It is encouraging others to love themselves. It is contagious.

Self love is choosing to see the positive and void the negative. It is holding my head high and strutting down the catwalk of my life with purpose and a fierceness that is a force to be reckoned with.

Self love is looking in the mirror and being able to say I like the person looking back at me.

Meet the Metzger’s

Sabrina Metzger…Our Sabrina!

A day of pretty things, and tents filled with beautiful souls who were there to cheer on the excited couple, this is how I would describe Nick & Sabrina’s wedding day. From the tiniest details on the tables to the beading on her dress everything was perfectly placed. We could not be happier for our friends, it was a great day to celebrate the joining of two hearts and an honor to be a part of helping to make it all happen.DSC_0590
