“Finally on YouTube!”
– My Husband
Before starting my blog, I used to spend a lot of time (I still do) watching YouTube hair tutorials for hairstyle ideas. I have always liked to do my own hair and the only times I had someone else do my hair was for my Quinces, 8th grade prom, and senior prom; I have a talented aunt to thank for that 😉
When my husband and I started dating (about 8 years ago now), he would constantly tell me to start my own YouTube channel to show the hairstyles that I do and would often get compliments on. But, I was intimidated.
All the women on YouTube doing hair tutorials are absolutely stunning with their makeup always on point! I have mentioned before, I am not a makeup person and felt too embarrassed to expose myself sans makeup for the world to see.
“You are beautiful! But what makes you even more beautiful is your heart. It is what I love most about you and others will, too. You are an inspiration!”
– My Husband (again)
Due to my husband’s endearing influence, I was stirred to move away from the norm and start doing hair tutorials with no makeup whatsoever! Partly, to represent my tag line,
“Cover my eyes so my heart can see”
And also to promote that beauty is from within so that we can learn to love ourselves just as we are.
Honestly, when I first played back the video I did not like what I saw and was judging every imperfection. I even doubted whether I still wanted to go through with doing videos with no makeup. But as I continued to watch the video multiple times while we were editing, I began to genuinely love what I was seeing.
I saw transparency, integrity, warmth, and compassion. I also saw physical qualities, lines, and marks that make my face truly one-of-a-kind; like a snowflake.
Now my heart is ignited to unfold before all of you and I hope that you can also learn to love YOU!

Self love, self respect, and self worth. There is a reason they all start with “self”. You can not find them in anyone else.
