You’re beautiful, just the way you are

Happy Friday Beauty Nerds!

It’s been a long, hectic week for me. The spring semester has started out with big projects on my plate. Sometimes the world seems to whiz right by when you’re busy and you find yourself not knowing where the time has gone. But no matter how hectic life is, it’s always important to take a moment out of your day, or week to ‘stop and smell the roses’. I know that sounds so cliché, but I think by doing so, it grounds us. It helps us stay connected to ourselves and our loved ones. It reminds us that we need to pursue what makes us happy and find beauty in small, simplistic things – a nice conversation with a friend, a walk in the park with your dog (or in my case, playing with my cats), or perhaps a nice dinner with your significant other.

My moment of ‘pause’ and reflection this week happened during my Branding class. Incidentally, we did a case study on Dove’s Campaign for Real Beauty – right up my alley :)! The campaign is several years old now, but as we were watching some of the ads in class, my classmate brought a particular video to my attention (thanks A!). And wow, did it ever make me pause. Not only was it sweet and endearing, but Dove’s message was so powerful. I think it resonates with many women, including myself. It’s a reminder, that we are constantly our own worst critics. And even though you may not be able to see past some of your own flaws, take it from me Beauty Nerds, ‘you’re beautiful, just the way you are.’

Yours truly,
