Hey beauties! I don’t know about you but I am so excited for the summer. I am off for the summer from one of my jobs so I’m happy to have more time to blog, draw, and write songs. I’ve come to realize if I’m not doing something creative, I’m really not happy inside.

I love this too. Found on Pinterest. Not sure where to find it unfortunately.
Lately I’ve been embracing a few role models to situate/inspire myself and mold my life into what I want it to be. When I’m trying to get through a long day at work I think of these 10 women role models, and try to emulate then them in general:
When it comes out to style, positivity, & ambition:
I wouldn’t mind following Chiara’s footsteps at all. She’s a businesswoman, more than a blogger/influencer, and a style extraordinaire. I love her playful, girly, unexpected style. She breaks fashion rules effortlessly and makes her own along the way. Honestly she’s inimitable.
In her own words,
“I’ve never tried too hard.” Love that.
When it comes to listening to your inner voice and not being afraid to speak the truth:
I’m forever in love with her poem “Still I Rise”:
"You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise…”
It’s so empowering. It’s a statement on not giving any of your precious time to haters and rising above your immediate circumstances. It’s truly amazing that Maya did, and how successfully she rose above the obstacles in her life, which were many.
When it comes to creativity:
Frida wasn’t afraid to be different and that’s what made her an amazing artist. She was really in touch with her pain and hardships and demonstrated that in her paintings. Painting was in fact her therapy in a way, and that’s what made her art so raw and beautiful.
When it comes to being a classy lady:
I love Coco Chanel’s approach to femininity. Always classic, beautiful, and simple, yet her designs are sexy in an unforgettable way. No one does timeless French fashion like Coco Chanel. When I think am I wearing too many accesories, or what to wear to an important event my mind always goes to Chanel for inspiration.
Mantras by Coco:
In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.
A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.
The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.

I want to live in Chanel’s iconic tweed suits when I get to be an old lady.
When it comes to beauty (and following your heart/taking risks & getting over your fears):

This girl is my favorite YouTuber hands down. She’s sweet, funny, humble, and her personality reminds me of myself honestly. Maybe because we’re both Aquariuses. I can’t live without her Aquarius lippie collab with Colourpop by the way. The main reason I religiously watch her videos though is because the way she has overcome her anxiety and successfully battles it daily inspires me immensely. She went from being a shy unsure girl who made her first videos on a whim and a dream and became one of the most successful beauty Youtubers ever. I love her.
Thanks for reading loves! Who inspires you? (Male or female, dead or alive)
Love & good vibes being sent to all of you!! 🙂
