The essence of kindness is being able to love, forgive, and share that warmth with those who may need it most. 

Guys expect girls to have huge breasts, a small waist, a big butt, long hair, a flat stomach, tanned skin, a cute face, long eyelashes, perfect eyebrows, full lips, a thigh-gap, long legs, wide hips, thick thighs, know how to cook, show a lot of skin but not dress “slutty,“ be sexually experienced but not be promiscuous, love wearing snapbacks, sneakers and high heels *but not be taller than the guy while wearing said heels*, has to love watching sports, won’t call them on their b.s., won’t be jealous of their female “friends”, has to love wearing lingerie, push up bras, yoga pants, thongs and g-strings but can’t wear uggs, heavy makeup, big sunglasses, high-waisted jeans, high-waisted shorts, red lipstick, fake nails, fake hair, leggings, pantsuits or their hair in a bun, must always in the mood to have sex, be “open-minded” in bed, can’t have beauty marks, stretch marks, cellulite, scars, too many tattoos, kinky hair, dark skin, body hair or a vagina or breasts that don’t look like what they’ve seen in porn and can’t weigh more than 120lbs.

And yet they’re deeply offended when girls say they don’t date guys shorter than 6 feet.

Persevere. Don’t let them see you cry. I know it’s tough, and you keep wondering to yourself “Why me?”. 

It’s going to be okay. 

You’re going to be okay. 

You have so much to give to the world. Don’t let anyone’s negativity derail you on your path to success. Keep moving forward. I’m proud of you.

My Valentine is far away from me this year, which is what happens when we spend Christmas together. But for some reason I’m feeling extra sappy (read: needy) this February, so I put some of that into styling the twee-est Valentine’s outfit I possibly could. PS: In an attempt to find the ultimate red lip, I layered the Sephora cream lip stain in Always Red over MAC Ruby Woo and I think this is almost perfect, don’t you?
