Good morning babes!
I have a super special post for you guys today. I was lucky enough to participate in The Stripped Project with the amazing Jordan Zobrist. This project was created to show women in their truest light, with no make-up and no re-touching. What the vulnerable?! Yeah, I know.
You guys, it was freaking nerve wracking doing this shoot. Of course, the week of the shoot I broke out and had a MASSIVE pimple on my face. I did everything I could to get it off my face without picking at it, but on the day of the photoshoot it was still a bit visible. Jordan swore to me that she could hardly see it, and it was then that I realized how hard we can be on ourselves. As women, we fixate on things that others don't even notice. We primp and prime for hours on end. We try endlessly to perfect our appearances. But at the end of the day, we are most beautiful when we are 100% ourselves. I challenge you guys to unmask your true beauty and forego make-up this week. Plus it's good to let your skin breathe from time to time. ;)
Below are is the interview I did with Jordan about empowering ourselves, especially in the world of social media. Go easy on me. I was completely honest so if you don't like my answers, I sincerely apologize but these are my thoughts. Don't forget to check out The Stripped Project and see all the other women involved with this! It is truly an honor to be featured with some of my favorite bloggers and women who inspire me on a daily basis.
