Frosty mornings ❄️ Whilst London’s attempt at snow was weak, it’s been baltic 🥶 So much so that my nose is flaking (TMI I know, I either need to find a heavy duty moisturiser or a balaclava) and I’ve managed to catch a cold 🤧 Wish I could burrito myself in bed but alas it’s hump day and I have a million and one things to do before the weekend. Happy Wednesday everyone! I’m low key proud I didn’t caption this anything to do with wearing a certain colour on a certain day lol 💖

Throwback to six months ago when this guy was still a tiny explorer 😽🥰he’s the complete opposite of my older cat who is super chill and behaved, but since I’ve never had a kitten before I’m really hoping he calms down eventually 😆
So OK, you're probably thinking, "Is this, like a Noxema commercial, or what?!" But seriously, I actually have a way normal life for a teenage girl. I mean I get up, I brush my teeth, and I pick out my school clothes. 💁🏻♀️ say hello to my new closet aka the greatest gift I’ve ever received thanks to @susangkoger 😍🤩😍🤩 #whurlathome
When you run into a customer and she is practically in [happy] tears because she can now confidently go without foundation if she wants. Her dark spots have faded and her skin is bright and glowing!👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

You guys, I’m tired. Im tired of trying to make myself smaller in order to fit into a space that I’ve told myself I should fit into. Im not talking about body size, im talking about personality size. I have a personality that can fill a whole room; bigger, bolder, sometimes louder than most. I’ve spent most of my married years telling myself to be quieter, milder, more subdued. I’ve told myself that poor Tim didn’t know what he was getting himself into when he married me. Surely, I’m too much and need to dial it back. I live at an 11, and should probably dial it back down to an 8. I shouldn’t take up so much space because I’m probably suffocating to others. Turns out, I’m not alone in feeling this way as a woman.
At SHINE, I heard Jalia talk about her life in Uganda and her marriage to Daniel. I heard her speak about trying to dial her boldness down early in their marriage because good Ugandan wives are supposed to be humble...and quiet. At the very least more humble and quieter than their husbands. As she spoke these words. She spoke about thinking that Daniel must’ve made a mistake in choosing her. She’s too bold. He deserves someone not so outspoken. Someone milder. Daniel told her that no, she was exactly what he needed.
Boy oh boy, did this speak truth over my heart! Tears welled up in my eyes as I felt all those SAME feelings inside me. I’m too bold. I need to be less. And just like Jalia, I too have a husband who tells me that I’m wrong and my kind of crazy is exactly what he wants day in and day out.
So, I’m going to start something new. I’m going to stop being apologetic for being me and taking up space. Im going to strive for fearless, unapologetic, genuine living. I’m done with trying to dial it back in order to not come off as “too much”.
Ladies, I want to tell you that you are ALLOWED to be bold. You are ALLOWED to be outspoken. You are ALLOWED to feel big things and light up a room like the 4th of July when you walk in it! Stop telling yourself that you need to be less. Be bold and brave in all you do! Tag a fabulous lady in your life who needs to hear these words today. 💛💛

Missing the other half of #teamlepage this week while he’s off working in Phoenix ✈️
So far I’ve already almost caught up on Catfish (my guilty pleasure) and finally watching Dumplin’, and I’m reading two new books! What else should I put on my must-watch/read list?
