Our skin is such a personal thing. I realize now that I am in my 20’s that growing up, skin is a huge deal – and I don’t think we realize it at the time. We worry about having acne, freckles, being too pale, too dark. We try to cover up with makeup and hope and pray that people won’t notice that blemish that showed up overnight. When I was in high school and going into college, I was very conscious of my skin & not very confident in how it looked or felt.

Where Faith and Fashion Meet

Ever since I can remember, fashion has been something I was extremely interested in. I used to have dreams of designing collections or owning a boutique, but those were not in the cards for me (at least not yet!) I have loved the way that God has morphed my love of so many things into a platform here on Faithfully Beautiful – where I can share what is on my heart and the things I am loving at the moment.

Easy Boho Inspired Braided Hairstyle

I am a lover of beautiful bold braids, texture, and lots of fun when it comes to hairstyles. I think when it comes to our hair many of us want what we don’t have. I grew up with baby fine bleach blonde hair & I never really knew how to get it to do, well… anything. I would be so envious of girls with waves and thick curls. Their hair was full and bouncy and fun, but what was mine? Even now, I know what my hair can do and can’t do and I have learned styles that give me what I’m looking for and that I can be confident in.

The Perfect Summer Dress

I am all about dresses – especially in the summer! There is nothing better than finding a dress that is beautiful and comfortable and that you feel amazing in. Since having kids, I have definitely struggled with what looks and feels best on my body & haven’t come across many brands that really feel like they were made for me and my life. That is, until, I came across this amazing clothing brand – Britt Ryan! I am telling you, their beautiful dresses and tops are so fun, flirty, and the summer collection is all you have ever dreamed of!

How To Find Your Creativity

Being in a creative business is one of my dreams come true. I have always loved creating and being able to speak my voice and now I get to do that as part of my job – it’s incredible! Something that is challenging when it comes to being in a creative job is that everything rises and falls on your ability to keep making new and engaging content. I get questions all the time about how to combat that feeling of loosing your creative drive so I put together a few ways that help to fuel my creativity in hopes that it inspire you as well!

Summer Dresses Under $30

It’s officially HOT outside & I wanted to put together a collection of some of my favorite dresses that are affordable and great for mom life while enjoying your kids this summer! I am a huge dress fan. I think that they are just easy and cutest & great to feel cool in the heat. I hope you like these as much as I do! Are you a dress person or do you prefer shorts and a tee shirt in the summertime?

Wait… I Can Be Confident In A Swimsuit!?

Hey ladies – can I be real & honest here? For the last 3 and a half years straight, I have either been pregnant or nursing and that means that my body has changed and grown and shrunk and morphed more times than I would like to admit in these few years. Being confident in a bathing suit is certainly not one of my strong points. In fact, I have probably only worn one a handful of times since becoming a mama. It’s not that I’m super ashamed of my body, I just no longer had anything that fit me and worked well for my lifestyle now with two kids to chase down at the beach. In fact, I kept saying, “If I could just find a suit that fit me well, I would totally rock it!” Anyone with me?

10 Reasons Why Moms Don’t Get Dressed Everyday

Sure, it seems easy enough for those who aren’t mothers.

Get up. Get ready. Start your day.

But my oh my, if someone would have told me before I had kids just how much time and energy it would take to do those 3 simple tasks, I wouldn’t have believed them. We all see those mama’s who look put together everyday, or maybe we love to stalk that fashionista mom’s Instagram feed and loathe her for being able to wear heels and lipstick on a daily basis… For all of us who have been there and done that motherhood thing, I know you can relate to these top 10 reasons why mom’s just don’t get dressed everyday.
