Have you ever looked at yourself at how a work of art you are, in every way , every angle , every minute of your life? And have you ever thought about all that being captured in form of a picture or a video no prior pretty like make up or anything just you , your face and your whole being !
A bit scary at this point right ?.We all wanna look dope and all ready at all times with the current trends .
Looking back at all this and I can’t help but feel how far I have come , still not in any way perfect a daily dose of work input with all honesty is all I am daily doing .
I admit though I am happier with myself and every feel in my bone towards the person I am becoming is doing a happy happy joy joy dance 😄.
I used to think that for every picture a form of perfection had to be in place , make up ,dress up , heels and accessories which by the way I am head over heals in love but also the flip side not dressing up at all just taking the feels that come in and boom am out of the house.
Sometimes I just get lazy to do all the make up process 😂, and other times a girl wants to dress up and doll up , it all boils down to my moods and what am down for. Personally dolling up sometimes means I have to ditch my glass and get my prescribed lenses which is a huge process for my very sensitive eyes and when am too tired all that process gets thrown out of the window . I settle for moisturizer , toner and my powder with a little lip gloss or nude lipstick we hit the road.
I can’t really recall what inspired my outfit for this particular day all I wanted was to be warm , comfortable and able to manoeuvre the busy Nairobi streets . I was meeting up with a photographer Sami Khan and later one of my girlfriends my boothang . Randomly this photos were taken and I remember in my head feeling all inadequate , not ready , not sexy enough name it all . Years later when I look back at this day I cant help but smile and see my fresh face smile and the happiness in my eyes. Sometimes we just don’t know how beautiful we are .
We are beautiful and we need everyday to let ourselves know that from deep within to our outer selves.
And the best progress so far for me has been embracing my oily skin while managing the day to day routine with its occasional breakouts. With all that in mind I love my everyday bare face and whenever am in the mood to doll up I go wild on it .
I love how far I have come and every ooze in my aura shows it 😄😃😊.
You go girl 😄😘 , I am just here to remind the YOU , how Beautiful you are , Know it Own It.
