With a little flash back, and some studio pics from a shoot I did with the very talented, Matt Corkum a few years ago I’m candidly chatting all about how blogging has changed my life.
You might not know this blog reader, but when I was in junior high school I was very insecure and shy (if you can believe it). I have very few photographs of myself as a teenager because I would duck anytime the camera came my way. It’s probably difficult for you to imagine this because it’s so far from where I am today, but it’s absolutely true. It kind of makes me a little sad in way, to think that I was so unhappy with the way I felt I looked that I didn’t want any record of it even if that meant not being able to create tangible memories with my friends.
I look back now at some of my outfit choices (even from the last year) and laugh, but that’s kind of the fun in all of this isn’t it? I think the more I blog, the more I experiment with fashion, style, and beauty products because I’m aware of how quickly it changes, and to me I’d rather give it a go now and see how it goes than regret that I hadn’t.
Because I am in front of the camera quite a bit these days I think I make sure to take care of myself a little more than I would otherwise. I try to maintain a healthy lifestyle by being mindful of what I put into my body while keeping active (hello 5 dance classes a week), but no one is perfect. I mean I have a mad addiction to kettle cooked chips, and I do enjoy a glass of vino (or two) on the weekends.
As a result of what I do now I also make sure to use really great skincare lines to make sure my skin is healthy, but I also know that it has a lot to do with what’s going on with the inside of your body. I make sure to maintain a great relationship with my family doctor, naturopath, osteopath, and massage therapist. It’s so much more than a vanity thing, and much more about taking care of myself; so I have the confidence to get myself through this crazy thing we call life.
Stick around for more food, fashion, fun in the years to come blog reader! I don’t always Hustle, but when I do: it’s everyday!
