Melissa is a wonderful lifestyle and wellness blogger who is full of tips and tricks on taking care of yourself from the inside out. She is one of those naturally beautiful people that make you want to know all their secrets! You can find her blog here.
What is your first reaction when someone tells you that you’re beautiful?
It makes me smile! …Unless they’re a total creep haha.
Do you believe them?
It really depends on who’s saying it, their attitude and the context. Regardless, genuine compliments can be a huge confidence booster.
What do you think makes you beautiful?
What makes me feel beautiful is kindness and love. Being nice to others is such a beautiful act in itself. Putting on killer shoes and gorgeous false lashes doesn’t hurt too ;). I really believe in the whole “feel good, look good / look good, feel good” mantra.
Do you think that people (not necessarily just women) are told they are
beautiful often enough?
Nooooo. But, I definitely think we should tell people they’re beautiful more or at least compliment others more often. If we’re sincere about it, we can really increase positive vibes all around and lift someone’s mood.
In today’s world, we are constantly made to feel like we need the newest beauty palettes or the freshest fashion to be pretty, or to be enough. Do you think that who you are and what you have is “enough”?
Yes, I do think who I am and what I have is enough. That totally doesn’t mean I can’t have fun with beauty and style products. I think that kind of goes back to that “feel good, look good / look good, feel good” mantra.
Can you think of one person who has left a positive difference on you or the way you see yourself? What did they do to help you see yourself or the world around you differently?
It’s really hard to think of just one person! If I had to pick, I would pick my mom. She’s super positive about everything and that motivates me to become a better, more positive person.
Thank you so much to Melissa for taking part in this series, and for always being such a kind, friendly and goodhearted person.
