Mimi Ikonn’s YouTube video on self acceptance has inspired me to share a snippet of my story. Growing up, I was unaware that I was an introvert. Everyday was a struggle for me. School was always overwhelming to a point I made up excuses to miss school. I would fake being sick to avoid attending school. It’s suffocating being in a room filled with troublesome (at least in my opinion) kids.
Not until I read Susan Cain’s book Quiet about introverted individuals, that I truly understood why I felt that way. Being shy was second nature to me and it takes a lot of courage for me to talk to anyone. It’s funny my first job was working for an in-store bank and I had to sell sell sell. Imagine the horror of walking down the isle of the supermarket to approach potential customer, only to be turned down (it was a nightmare).
Now, I work as a fashion and beauty blogger, photographing outfits in public and posing in front of a camera. You may ask, how do you do it when your an introvert? It honestly takes a lot on me to gather the courage. My son is my motivation and I fight my fears every week to get the job done. As an introvert, it’s not easy to put myself out there and accept criticism as part of my job. I overcome it by using criticism as fertilizer to grow and harvest my goals.
My fears from childhood did not go away for lessen. I just learn how to deal with my struggles and see the positive side of it. It’s easier said than done, believe me I know. My message is, no matter what demons you are facing within yourself do not let it hinder you from doing what you want. If I keep living as a shy girl, then I wouldn’t have a fashion blog that I truly enjoy doing. I love sharing with you. Your feedbacks are so important to me. It helps me thrive and grow as a blogger and as a person. Blogging is a whole new world and I am beyond ecstatic that I’m now part of it with you.

Hi Friends! Today I will be reviewing my favorite perfume for Spring and Summer. Al though I personally would use these all year round. I am putting them up for you to try and see if you love them too.
I want to start by saying this is not an ad. I’ve been using CeraVe for four years and I love it. I was introduced to CeraVe by my sister-in-law who suffered adult acne and her dermatologist at the time suggested to use CeraVe cleanser and moisturizer. Which she did and saw improvements with her skin. She told me to give it a try and I did.
