For any girl who wants a good reminder and guidance to be a successful young women, I HIGHLY recommend this book. From talking about God, beauty tips, relationships, romance, friends, mistakes, & etc. Here are just a few words that I appreciate from @chelseakaycrockett #yourownbeautiful
Women supporting women! The Beauty Community is awesome, full of amazing people, but to be honest, sometimes it isn’t always so beautiful. I’ve seen people through their own insecurities and fears tear down others and treat this platform of social media like a catty battlefield 😔 In the real game of life I hope we realize it’s better to uplift and encourage one another, for we are better together 🙌🏼 @chelseakaycrockett was in the very first @nyxcosmetics Face Awards! The competition didn’t turn us into enemies but sisters! I am so incredibly proud of this extraordinary woman! And what she has accomplished as an influencer! Making an eternal impact on this generation! Spreading hope and inspiration across the world! I highly recommend her book #YourOwnBeautiful Love you Chelsea with all my heart! Can’t wait to see what God has in store for you next!💖🙌🏼😄#inspirational#friends#hope#ministry#GodisGood#thankyouJesus#friendship#blessing#goodreads#book#books
Something that is super important to me during this prep is to work on my positivity and my confidence 🌀
From my early morning/long day schedule I have already had a few “fu*k me’s” and “why the hell am I getting up SO early?”💭 Oh yeah...because I want to! Now, I can’t promise every day will be glitter and unicorns but I was try my hardest! ———
I also need to work on loving my body and being confident in what I am building because I’m sure there will be days where I am feeling fat (I’m not, I’m aware), unmotivated, and probably just ugly...
Both of these photos are #unfiltered good lighting and bad. Part of my posing transition and just posed. Both are me. ———
My three main goals during this prep:
1. Don’t be an asshole...
2. Enjoy it
3. Feel comfortable basically being almost naked in front of an audience 🤣
Experiences are what you make them; there is always a choice.

@chelseakaycrockett shared some great truths on the blog today on where we find our joy. “I know some of you have been in a season where life is just not what you’d like it to be, or you’re currently toughing it out right now. In the Christmas season and new year, there can be pressure to put on a “facade” to our families, friends, and to the world that everything is okay. One of the beautiful things about Christ is that he came to silence the need to put up a “front”.” You can read more from Chelsea at the link in my bio! #yourownbeautiful#beautyliciousinsider#joy#christmas
Me on the left with no makeup and my hair up: how I look on a day to day basis. Me in the right with my makeup done and hair down: how I wished I looked everyday!
But the reality is no one looks amazing all the time... We all have those days where we just don't feel great. That's okay! Sure we would all love to look picture perfect 24/7 but that's not reality. Instead of stressing about how we look we should all make sure to be a better person. We can't change much about the way we look. What we can change is our character. Strive to be a better person: show kindness, be brave, try new things, laugh more, make new friends, hang out with your family, love God with all your heart, and remember to live life to the fullest. We all grow old and lose our young appearance, but our characters never fade. Instead of asking what you can do to improve your looks. Ask what can I do to be a better person! .
I’ve met so many amazing people over the course of my life that have become like family and I wouldn’t trade them for the world. I’m so thankful to meet people like Tiara. Becomes an instant friend to anyone she meets. She sets up a coffee date, and bam. Friends. In light of my book, #YourOwnBeautiful being out for over a month, I want to have a conversation about the difficulties of friendship. I talk a lot about how I wasn’t always the best friend in some of my videos, and how I unintentionally bullied other girls growing up by gossiping about them. It’s important to talk about how words effect others. Joining in on conversations that are harmful, even if you’re not the one gossiping is just as cruel, and you are just as guilty as the one doing the talking. So I wanted to ask y’all, are you currently struggling in some of your friendships? What do you find is the best way to overcome obstacles in your friendships? I’d love to hear your thoughts on this and I’ll be responding to comments. 💛
I know one of you, or maybe several are having trouble getting through each and every day. You crave sleeping because it’s the only thing that seems to silence your frantic thoughts. Dreading waking up knowing that the morning brings the cycle back all over again. I’ve been there. It’s sucks. For me, I immediately forced myself to write scripture and memorize it every single morning so my first thoughts were truth and not lies. I started going to therapy to sort out all that was going on in my head, and I think that is healthy for anyone to do. I also got help from medication. All these things together helped me help myself. I still take medication, and I still talk to someone from time to time. You’re not weird, you’re not different, but if you feel stuck, it’s time to do something about it. Felt the need to post something about this today for some reason. Really think someone needs it. I talk more about this in my book, #YourOwnBeautiful , and it’s been out for a month already. Pick it up at a Barnes and Noble or on Amazon! Love y’all.
