Merry Christmas, everyone! And happy holidays! This isn't my Christmas outfit (I'll post that later) but it's an outfit I wore a few days ago. Remember during tights week when I wore all black and shared a beautiful piece from Vedette Shapewear? Well, this beautiful bustier that I incorporated into my outfit is courtesy of Vedette Shapewear's Sensuale line. And guess what? They're going to be sponsoring a giveaway for my blog and three of my lucky ladies will be winning a shapewear if their own (from Vedette's Basic line)! Stay tuned for more information! It'll be my first giveaway ever and I sure hope it opens doors for many more to come!
This post is dedicated to all the reason why I love my body and why you should to!
In the media, especially in fashion, there are so many factors that tackle a woman's self-esteem. Models are pin thin with chiseled faces and not an ounce of fat on them. Women and children flip through magazines defining beautiful as what they see on each and every page. It's true. Those models are beautiful but the beauty they possess doesn't make the one you have any less valuable. It may sound cliche, but beauty is only skin deep and it fades. The most beautiful thing about a woman is her confidence and that's not physical, it's an aura. You can sense a woman's confidence by the way she carries and presents herself. Confidence is beautiful, sexy and everything in between! So, ladies, embrace your inner beauty and let it shine through confidence!
Reasons To Love Your Body
-Love the skin you're in and others will, too: The more you honor and appreciate your body, the more likely it is you’ll attract positive, uplifting people into your life.
-Love your body, and it will love you back: There is a direct correlation between hating your body and retaining weight. If you’ve built an adversarial relationship with your body through negative thoughts and comments, then your body is less likely to cooperate with your attempts to lose weight or get healthy.
-Remember the 20% rule when you look in the mirror: You are 20 percent more beautiful to other people than to the woman you see in the mirror every day. Why? Because when you look at your reflection, all you see is your physical form. You’re looking for flaws. When others see you, they also take in your personality, style, intelligence, sex appeal and wit: the whole you.
