Naturally #Primp

In high school, I spent so much time in the mirror.

I thought that I was vain, but honestly, I was more insecure of my appearance, abilities, and worth. High school is the time where we are beginning to determine who we are; our beliefs, values, our essence and purpose begin in high school.

We are born into a material world, surrounded by images of women who we consider to be prettier, more beautiful or gorgeous than we are. #defythestandardofbeauty


We spend hours in mirrors trying to be perfect like every girl on a magazine cover.

I remember fixing my hair, constantly. If one strand of hair was out-of-place, I felt like I wasn’t perfect.

But, I wanted to be perfect for others, not myself.

Being perfect is subjective, and now, we have to change the definition…

In our teens, we do not realize that we are perfect without make-up, designer hand-bags, clothing & shoes…

We are naturally primp!
