Be who you are. Not who the world wants you to be. —————————————————- For the first time since I was 13,(and boys it’s been 10 years) I don’t mind my acne. I don’t hide or cover it. It’s a part of my story that I’ve grown to understand and accept. I make the effort to go into my daily life with my scars and blemishes, and six months ago it had me shaking. But slowly I’ve healed my mind, my insecurities, all that my inner critic would point on the daily. It’s still a fight for that confidence, and social media doesn’t help. Too often we see cultural beauty and can’t help but compare ourselves. Fortunately I have found amazing women that have helped my confidence rise with EVERY #freeface photo posted. We are growing a community here, to be understood, connected, supported and loved right where we’re at ❤️ and in case no one said it to you today, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL
I’m where I’m meant to be 💕🌸✨ This time last year I was under a rock in a hole processing life apart from social media, it was the rest I dearly needed. Now walking into this new year with new goals and energy has made the confusion and uncertainty of life manageable 💕 one day I’ll write about stepping away from social media but for now I’ll just say, it was the best decision I made and I highly recommend. Photo by my friend @jhaasphoto!! Can’t wait for more Renaissance Faire looks this summer
Hour and a half later to look like the same human bean (just in pink) 😂💕🌸 Proud of that wig restyle, but my punzie makeup is so rusty there’s definitely gonna be a redo. Since #freeface and this past year I’ve become so comfortable in my natural state that I’ve started feeling off when in costume. (Proof I just havnt dressed up enough recently, but I’ve got lots of adventures coming! Be prepared) And yes, this phone case will be the end of me 😂🙌🏻
Can you find lil Punzie and Eugene? 🌸☀️🌸 This scene is my favorite piece of Disney animation. I’ve always loved painting it and seriously out did myself with this purse. I’ll be posting this and a couple more on my Etsy (hopefully lol) at the end of the week! 🌟✨🌸💜✨💜🌸✨🌟 What your favorite Disney scene?
Always be shootin for ma own hand. (Starts singing Miss Independent) 🐻❤️🎯 Thanks to my friend @littlemissdarth I was finally able to take this lass out for a bit!!! Been in a huge painting mood, so be prepared to just see all sorts of purses for the next month while I’m between projects 🙌🏻🙌🏻
It’s all about the process❤️ Finally filled my Etsy account up with the gems I’ve been working on over the past month! Link is in my profile if you’d like to give it some love. 🎨🎨🎨🎨🎨🎨🎨🎨🎨🎨🎨🎨🎨🎨🎨🎨🎨 Always love a start to finish. I truly love painting these purses every step of the way. Can’t wait to paint more in 2019! Which design is your favorite?

Still pinching myself that you ladies are in my life 💕 #wcw to Traci and Monica. Thank you for your love and kindness and understanding. I truly treasure and value the time we spend together (as you said before trace, its quality over quantity) the wisdom, the strength, the determination between these two is unmatched. Their heart for people, their heart for their art, the vision for their future, it is inspiring and truly beautiful. They are both such beautiful souls and I’m thankful to call them dear friends. @tracihines @monicadanae you’re stuck with me for the long-haul ❤️😘 love you guys so so much
