3 Ways to More Self-Love

Search the Word for Answers – What Does God Say About You?

Look to the bible for what God and Jesus say about you. The love they have for you, how they see you and the promises they have for you. These will be the verses you stand on, verses to recite when negative thoughts creep into your mind or when someone says something negative about you. This is your arsenal of positive affirmations but from the Most High. What He says about you trumps what anyone, including yourself, says about you. Once you have your verses keep them somewhere handy, the notepad on your phone highlighted in your Bible app or even commit a few to memory. I have a few on my wall at home too but I need them at my fingertips, negative thoughts can come up at any time so it’s good to have them accessible at all times.

  • Verses about what God says about you
    • Psalm 139:14 – I praise you because I’m fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well
    • Psalm 46:5 – Go is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day
    • Ephesians 1:4 – For he chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world that we may be holy and unblemished in his sight in love
    • Provers 31:17 She wraps herself in strength, might and power in all her works.

I’m in a Clairol Campaign

Y’all, your girl was in a Clairol, Nice & Easy Campaign. Clairol had 100 women dye their hair with their newly formulated Nice & Easy permanent hair dye. They wanted to test if a new hair color would boost a woman’s confidence. Clairol has also been working on this new formula for years so they wanted the launch to be special, and I think it was just that. Here’s what they found out:

  • 97% checked themselves out more
  • 87% got more compliments
  • 77% gave more compliments
  • 70% said they were ready for anything
  • 85% felt more confident

Now I’m not saying coloring your hair is going to solve all self-confidence issues, but I do see it as putting on make-up, a new lipstick or that outfit you love. When you do the slightest change it gives you a new outlook on yourself. Continue reading I’m in a Clairol Campaign

Dear Brown Girl…

Dear Brown Girl,

Why are you weeping? Your tears of inadequacies are warranted as the world tells you your skin is too dark, your nose is too wide, your lips are too big and your hair is unruly. You cry for the lack of seeing those who look like you in ads, magazines, movies and television. Your tears are valid and necessary but I am here to tell you, you won’t be crying long.

Happy Valentine's Day

Raven Roberts Gelato Pique

Happy Valentine’s Day from me, Gelato Pique and American Greetings.

Over the years this has turned into just another day for me as I don’t have a boo/bae to be my Valentine. In recent years I’ve celebrated the day of love with my girls by making it Galentine’s Day. Whether it’s a dinner, movies, a party or a game night, just celebrating and appreciating one another. This Valentine’s Day my plans have changed several times lol, but I will be at New York Fashion Week  and in the evening spending time with bae aka work. As most of my work is done in bed anyways, that’s where I’m creating this post now, I’m going to be a bit more festive this year with a matching set from Gelato Pique.
