But if I had to choose her or the sun,
I'd be one nocturnal son of a gun.

Yes YOU Can

First and foremost, this post is about you because there is no one more important than yourself. For one, you are alive and that is a privilege in itself. In the midst of being alive, empowerment is crucial. So put aside any baggage that you may carry with you because there is no point in carrying around something heavy. Life is so much lighter and enjoyable without all that weight. Yeah, there maybe onlookers who are constantly judging every move you make but quite frankly, who cares? Sit back, relax, and let them watch because there is nothing more flattering. This is your story, and you are in complete control of how it pans out. You are allowed and entitled to be selfish because nothing matters more then your own happiness and successes. There is no point in dwelling on the past because what’s happening is right now. Yes, this very moment! Be wise, be smart, be aware, but most importantly be yourself. Life is going to throw challenges your way but don’t dodge them, maneuver through them with ease and finesse. The ride can be smooth or bumpy at times, but remember who is behind the steering wheel, you. You are special, you are beautiful, and you are of substance, so don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Feeling empowered yet? I hope so.

Yours truly,

Let me do what I do best and take you up close and personal with a backstage pass to the best runway show in town. I can take the images and bring it to life with my exclusive footage. In addition, I'll be delivering interviews for a more in-depth look at the girls in front of the camera. And that's a wrap!

You just can't look fabulous without feeling fabulous. When your feeling at your best, you have a certain glow that radiates from your inner core. So I am comin at you with a weekly advice column. I will share with you tips and even my own personal stories on relationships, self-esteem, and much more so you can feel and look like a million bucks and continue doing what you do best, shine.

Who am I to define beauty? I can help you to be the best version of yourself with my tricks and tips that would be able to help any damsel in distress.
