Stay Beautiful Video
Two friends of mine did a “Stay Beautiful” campaign that I was featured in and I decided to share it with you! The idea behind this campaign was to promote the improvement of women’s self esteem and share the idea that beauty is not confined by one definition.
Ladies, I hope this video shows you that you are beautiful no matter the skin you’re in. Embrace your beauty for everyone embodies something beautiful. Society has placed this terrible misconception that beauty has standards. That you must look this certain way, talk this certain way, dress this certain way to be considered beautiful. This has turned some women into having self-esteem issues and/or eating disorders. Shy away from the negativity and love yourself for at the end of the day, that is all you have!

This Tuesday will be my 22nd birthday! I honestly can’t believe that is has already been a year since I’ve had my first (strong) margarita from Chimy’s on the Square! I remember I went to Chimy’s after class on this day. I was too excited about ordering my first drink that I asked the waitress for 2 drinks … She denied me saying that it was only one drink per person. Thank God she did because one was good enough!
This year for my birthday, I’ll spend some time at home with my family and later head to dinner with some close friends!
This year has been a year of so much growth. I’ve learned so much about myself. I’ve pushed myself out of my comfort zone mentally, physically and spiritually. I have conquered challenges. I have gained everlasting friendships and have had some really great laughs! I am so proud of the woman I am today. It’s amazing how much you can accomplish in a year’s time.
2016 is going to be a year of many changes for me. I will be graduating college in a few months. I will (hopefully) have a fantastic job that I love and learn from. My family will be relocating from San Antonio to Nashville and honestly who else knows what is going to happen! Either way, I’m ready for it. xoxo
