Make sure you show off your mind, heart and soul this weekend...
Yes, we have flaws. But remember they are not stopping the beauty, they are a huge part of it 🙂
I wish we would all take note of the above message. I'm all for making yourself look good on the outside because that shows you're taking care of yourself. You deserve to spend time making yourself look your best. Focusing on inner beauty certainly doesn't mean rolling around in your sweats and greasy hair every … Continue reading Boost of the Day #96: Defining beauty
It's Friday and your focus today must be self love, even Shakespeare says so! There is nothing sinful in taking the time to love yourself, it is far worse to neglect yourself. Happy Friday x

Morning from sunny England (finally!),
During my daily read of blogs on self-esteem, I came across one which I completely related to so I thought I should share. I have been guilty of putting men I date on a pedestal and I have slowly realised that this will never lead to a healthy relationship, and indeed will always lead to being hurt.

Do you sometimes notice that when you are with the man or woman you feel romantically and sexually about you put them on a pedestal?
You may think at first you are doing this because of how special they are to you. You may think you admire another person or “look up” to them. This is just not the case when we choose to place someone on a pedestal. In this case, by placing another person above us, we are literally and automatically putting ourselves below them in a much lower position with much less power. Not only is this a very vulnerable position, but also a very unhealthy one. If we want to find and seek healthy relationships we must not knowingly put others above us leaving us feeling worthless and not good enough to be valued and wanted.
What is wrong with us when we do this?
