Hello Darlings, It is said that beauty is in the eye of beholder. I think it is all within an attitude. As Sophie Lauren famously said, “beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical.” A statement that cannot be anymore true and one that is often times lost within our beauty ideals.

 Today in the world of beauty trends that define what is beautiful and attractive, it is easy to lose your identity. No point in time have women faced as much emphasis on physical appearance as they do today. This is why beauty is an attitude. It is a woman’s attitude toward herself and her appearance that defines her beauty. Beauty is an attitude that you have towards yourself.

Hello Darlings, In today’s world we all live a life of aspirations. One day we aspire to graduate on top of our class, to advancing in our starter jobs to purchasing our first place and for some starting their own business. Every single aspiration is unique to its pursuant however they all lie in the hope of tomorrow. The constant hunger and drive for bigger and better and with it the tomorrow. For me it all started with immigrating to Canada when I was 10 years old and learning English as fast as I could. Being able to belong was all that mattered to me in that moment.  My hope was for English to become as good as my mother tongue, however lets be honest it will never be my first language. In fact, 17 years later I still have a slight accent.

Hello Darlings, The day after my 25th birthday I felt like a weight of the world has come crushing down on my shoulders. Not sure what changed within twenty four hours but on that day two years ago it all did. It’s as if the switch went off in my mind and the priorities have shifted or perhaps I finally established some. Within the past two years I have struggled in finding myself and envisioning what I want my life to be. It was during that classic dilemma of “20s are for making mistakes” and that “the 30s are the new 20s” where I finally realized that neither of those were true. Perhaps a comforting thought when you’re trying to navigate adulthood but far from truth. In fact, the opposite is true.

Our 20s is the most significant decade of adulthood where 80% of life’s most defining moments take place by the age of 35. Therefore the 30s are definitely not the new 20s because even the lack of action or decisions will define your life. Not making choices is a choice all the same. Upon realizing that there’s no pause from life regardless of the age that I’ve finally come to terms with importance of being a twenty-something.
