The following images and excerpt makes me very vulnerable as I explain my promise to stop fearing self-promotion and others’ reactions to my uncontrollable passion. My words and images are unedited, catching me off guard. However, I love them for capturing me in the moment, letting my true passion for fashion shine.
Written from the Heart
I am filled with so much passion and joy for what I do! Can you believe my genuine happiness results in backlash!?
Of course I care what people think. Don’t we all!? However, I am realizing that it’s ok to self-promote, it’s ok to bombard people’s news feed with MONAT flash sales and my newest blog post, which I spend days planning and editing. Why? Because “self-promotion,” is the only way to reach the person who has lost confidence in their natural beauty, and all they need is a little attainable fashion and beauty advice to build them back up.
In short, I do this thing called “fashion blogging” because I have witnessed first hand how the right clothes, hair products, or lipstick can transform a woman’s confidence. From “self-promotion” I get paid in bringing joy and enhanced confidence to others, not dollar bills, and it’s the most amazing feeling ever!
Here’s to no longer apologizing for my uncontrollable passion. I hope it’s contagious.
