The Greatest Beauty Secret

0 Comments

As women, we are bombarded with messages that we are not beautiful enough just the way we are – we should pluck, contour, lose weight, wax, exfoliate, manicure, highlight, paint, flatten, inject and dress in haute couture to be “beautiful.” Ummmm, NOT. Beauty truly is a state of mind! The greatest beauty secret of all time is simply this – our attitude towards life is reflected in our face for all to see.


“I’ve never seen a smiling face that was not beautiful.” -uknown

Our attitude towards life is reflected in our face for all to see, “broadcast” to the world through our body expressions. Over time these attitudes etch their patterns on our face and in our manner, we begin to look exactly how we think and feel. Feeling good and being around authentic, positive, people can uplift you into a sense of overall well-being that radiate for all to see. Remind yourself DAILY that every cell of your mind, body, and soul is saturated, flooded and drenched in beauty, well-being, grace and love. Repeat as necessary.
The discovery of self is ongoing. Life keeps changing and we need to keep assessing how we live our lives and what we care about. It’s about being mindful of our lives – about feeling good in our skin, which is what feeling beautiful ultimately is all about!

Love Your Hair,
Jane

Natural Hair in Corporate America – Accepted or Taboo?

0 Comments
corporate hair

In 2007, Ashley Baker, a then-associate editor at Glamour Magazine, spoke to a group of 40 lawyers in Manhattan about the “dos and don’ts” of corporate fashion. When Baker got the slide showing a black woman with an Afro, it read “just say no to the fro”…and outrage ensued.

Natural hair, braids, twists, and dreadlocks were traditionally considered unemployable based on antiquated beliefs. Many natural hair wearers have felt the brunt of conservative employers who disapprove of “ethnic” hair. What is hiding under the guise of natural hair wear? Is it more about how well maintained your natural hair is or solely about hair being natural?

Many say we have progressed, is Corporate America is starting to accept natural hair? Or are there still some environments that consider natural hair to be taboo?
