A Fall Beauty Prediction

A Fall Beauty Prediction

The return of a MAJOR hairstyle

views

If these past couple of seasons have brought anything to the fashion and beauty world, it is the reminder that throw back looks are very, very powerful.

As printed mini dresses, flared jeans and lace-up sandals grace fashion advertisements a-la the 1970s and boyfriend jeans with messy hair and anything black bring back the grunge of the 90s, it is so blatantly obvious that fashion truly is cyclical.

If beauty takes any hint from fashion, then we could be in for some throwback hairstyles this season. For the past couple of years, shorter hair has been gaining popularity. Starting in 2014 when Vanessa Hudgens debuted her long bob, or lob, a more cropped 'do gained popularity longer tresses.

With fashion mavin, Kylie Jenner debuting an albeit faux bob a fashion night's out, the Met Gala, the transition to the a-line hair cut in more in line than ever.

As fall comes nearer, we can expect to see hair get shorter, and hopefully one bold star will bring back the fabulous hair style that has since been popularized by moms and early 2000s movie lovers alike.

To The Girl Struggling With Her Body Image

It's not about the size of your jeans, but the size of your heart, soul, and spirit.

To the girl struggling with her body image,

You are more than the number on the scale. You are more than the number on your jeans and dresses. You are way more than the number of pounds you've gained or lost in whatever amount of time.

Weight is defined as the quantity of matter contained by a body or object. Weight does not define your self-worth, ambition or potential.

So many girls strive for validation through the various numbers associated with body image and it's really so sad seeing such beautiful, incredible women become discouraged over a few numbers that don't measure anything of true significance.

Yes, it is important to live a healthy lifestyle. Yes, it is important to take care of yourself. However, taking care of yourself includes your mental health as well. Neglecting either your mental or physical health will inflict problems on the other. It's very easy to get caught up in the idea that you're too heavy or too thin, which results in you possibly mistreating your body in some way.

Your body is your special, beautiful temple. It harbors all of your thoughts, feelings, characteristics, and ideas. Without it, you wouldn't be you. If you so wish to change it in a healthy way, then, by all means, go ahead. With that being said, don't make changes to impress or please someone else. You are the only person who is in charge of your body. No one else has the right to tell you whether or not your body is good enough. If you don't satisfy their standards, then you don't need that sort of negative influence in your life. That sort of manipulation and control is extremely unhealthy in its own regard.

Do not hold back on things you love or want to do because of how you interpret your body. You are enough. You are more than enough. You are more than your exterior. You are your inner being, your spirit. A smile and confidence are the most beautiful things you can wear.

It's not about the size of your jeans. It's about the size of your mind and heart. Embrace your body, observe and adore every curve, bone and stretch mark. Wear what makes you feel happy and comfortable in your own skin. Do your hair and makeup (or don't do either) to your heart's desire. Wear the crop top you've been eyeing up in that store window. Want a bikini body? Put a bikini on your body, simple.

So, as hard as it may seem sometimes, understand that the number on the scale doesn't measure the amount or significance of your contributions to this world. Just because that dress doesn't fit you like you had hoped doesn't mean that you're any less of a person.

Love your body, and your body will love you right back.
