Stop Apologizing: Love Yourself

“Oh, I’m sorry.” 

Wait……. Why am I sorry? That person bumped into me. 

“I’m sorry.” 

Why did I just apologize for laughing? That person is laughing too. 

 

I do this all of the time and if you don’t know what I am talking about, I am talking about the fact that I apologize for being me. I can’t help myself and it’s a very bad habit. I can’t be the only person that does this. I recently made a promise to myself that I am no longer going to apologize for being me. I’m going to start living my best life and stop second guessing myself. I’m going to laugh however I want, I’m going to walk freely, I’m going to smile if I want to. I have a right to be on this earth, just as much as anyone else. Apologizing for everything that I do is something that I do as an insecurity. If I apologize, that means that I am lesser than the person that I am apologizing to. I know that I am not any less than that person. I am a human being that has emotions, I am a human being that walks down a street, and I am a human being that compliments something that I like. If you are like me and apologize for something that you didn’t need to apologize for, I want you to stand with me and stop apologizing. Tell yourself that you’re allowed to laugh, you’re allowed to breathe, and you’re allowed to be yourself. Promise yourself that you are going to stop saying sorry for no reason.

 

I would like a friend of mine for inspiring this blog post (you know who you are).

Q&A: Bakersfield Beauty Blogger

Wednesday means that the week is almost over! A couple of days ago, I hopped onto Instagram and asked my audience if they would love to read a Q & A and most of them said yes! If you would like to be a part of those polls, make sure that you are following me on Instagram. 

Now let’s jump in and get to know the girl in Bakersfield just a little bit more!

What primer do you use for a matte look?

I am in love with the Rimmel Stay Matte primer! It’s the best and super affordable.

Why did you start blogging?

I started blogging because, I needed some sort of creative outlet that I could be myself and really express my passions.

What was your main inspiration?

My main inspiration was honestly YouTube beauty gurus. I loved watching all of the beauty videos and all of the beautiful women getting to be their selves. I wanted to start a channel of my own, just needed something less intimidating. Then I thought to myself, duh! A blog is less scary, but still gets my message out there!

What advice do you have for a beginner blogger?

My advice to you would be to find your own style and consistency is key. When you are blogging, blog for yourself, cause it won’t be fun if you are doing it for the wrong reasons. Another tip is to use your tags! If you are trying to gain followers, those are how people are really going to find you. I can keep going trust me!

What is your favorite vacation destination?

I love going to the beach! I could live there if it wasn’t so damn expensive!

What is your favorite TV show?

I am so in love with Once Upon a Time! Hook is gorgeous and I love all of the fairytales! I am also loving Riverdale and Fuller House for sure.

So many great questions! Thank you all who asked me and wanted to know a little more about me. If you would like a part two, go ahead and leave some questions in the comment section.

Remember to stay confident!

What/who has inspired you to start your blog?

I followed a lot of bloggers on Instagram and just loved what they did and was super inspired. Also, a lot of my colleagues and friends were just non-stop asking me, when I would start blogging. So, one day I was trying to sell a skirt on Facebook and all those really mean people started to insult me – how I dare to wear this skirt, how fat I look and how a beautiful girl like me could just mess up her whole look with this skirt… That just ruined my whole day, I was so hurt and sad. But instead of just hide, I started to write about my experiences with Trolls I made my whole life. And this is when I started blogging.
All those haters and meanies inspired me to start blogging. I didn’t want them to hold me back, I’m f***ing beautiful and I’m f***ing sexy and I want to inspire all the other girls and boys, women and men that it doesn’t matter how they look and what other people say: Just be your beautiful SELF!

How long have you been building your brand?

I started blogging in August 2015 and I’m slowly, but constantly growing.

What is the next step for you?

The next step would be to grow and grow and grow and to keep having fun! It is still a hobby of mine, but maybe one day I can earn money with it.

Who is your biggest role model?

My Mama, always and forever. Strongest woman I know.

Do you have a routine when it comes to posting?

I do not have a routine. I post on Instagram and my blog whenever I want and feel like it. It still has to be fun and I do not want to fall into a routine yet.

Would you say that blogging has changed your confidence?

Most definitely yes. I feel so much more confident about me as a person and about my body.
This is an advice I would give anyone, who is struggling with their self Stand in front of a mirror and look at yourself, what do you like most about yourself? Do it daily and I bet you will find something new every time. Also, let someone take photos when you feel most confident about yourself, with beautiful makeup, hair and clothes, print them and hang them in your apartment. It works miracles!

Do you travel? If so, where are going next?
I would like to travel a lot more than I do now. I travel a lot for work but only in Germany, which is interesting but not my kind of travel I like. My next trip is hopefully around Christmas/New Years Eve. But I do not know where yet. And I would like to do a round trip by car through Scotland around Eastern.

Which topic is your favorite to blog about?

My favorite thing to blog about is everything that goes through my mind: I wrote some essays about body positivity and women’s rights. I learned most about myself and others when I wrote those texts.

What is your drink order from your favorite place?

I’m a Gin&Tonic girl through and through, so that will always be my go-to-drink. Preferable Bombay Saphire or Hendricks Gin with Fevertree Tonic Water and Cucumbers!

What is your favorite color?

My favorite color will always be red. Right now I totally go nuts for yellow.

Who is your biggest supporter?

My family is my biggest supporter in everything I do: Blogging, work, studying, going abroad…

Who is your favorite blogger?

My favorite bloggers are the power women from Blogger Bazaar (http://www.blogger-bazaar.com/) and the f***ing awesome Luciana from Luziehtan (http://luziehtan.de/de/)

How would you describe your style?

Bold and beautiful, individual, fun!

If you could collaborate with any brand in the entire brand in the world, who would it be?

Ouch, that is a hard question! I really, really like H&M, but so often they really suck when it comes to plus size! Same goes for ZARA. I think I would go with Zalando tough. It’s an online shop with lots of brands and I love them.
