There is only one woman who ever walked this Earth with absolute confidence, and … Continue reading Self-Confidence vs. Confident Beauty

My Struggle with Confident Beauty

My whole world was rocked the day my first husband left me.  Pregnant and alone, his betrayal made me feel ugly, unwanted and self-conscious. Before then, even though I was a hairdresser, I never really focused on my own appearance because, honestly, I was afraid of being shallow or vain. Suddenly it was a struggle to stand in front of a mirror all … Continue reading My Struggle with Confident Beauty

The Most Common Question

The Covid-19 stay-at-home-order has put us all in casual dress mode.

Often mistaken as naive, young or innocent, the Ingénue is actually a very strong woman. She may have a girlish figure and a high voice, but don’t let that be confused for youth or ignorance!

One Woman’s Journey to Find her True Image Identity

Most women HATE, HIDE or get HUNG UP on their image at one point in their lives. For many, this is during the teenage years, but for some it’s at a very young age, for others it comes later in life.

Do Children have a Personal Image Identity?

Every child has an innate desire to figure out who they are.   Am I valued? Am I wanted? Am I enough? It’s only natural for a young mind to find it’s answers from the information around her–a mom’s  words, a dad’s actions, her own comparison to her sister’s beauty–these are each part of the identity struggle that … Continue reading Do Children have a Personal Image Identity?
