How introducing Mystic Tan into my beauty regime has taken my body confidence to the next level.
If you’ve been following along here at A Grim Sense of Style, you’ve likely realized how important viewing ourselves beautifully is to me. To be honest, I’m not quite sure exactly how I became so confident or when it really happened. But I am sure that over the years I’ve learned to love myself through a range of sizes, shapes and mental states. And you know what? I’m really, REALLY proud of that.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve ALWAYS loved my curves even before the Kardashian’s made it cool (thank you Kim), but we all have our moments, am I right?

Spring things I’m loving RIGHT now.
There’s just something about spring in the city. Perhaps it’s the fact that I moved to NYC in the spring (that’s right, it’s almost my New York birthday!).

And EVERY New Yorker is out and about with a smile on their face! How can you not love spring time in the city?

Is it just me or has anyone else noticed our millennial “living for the weekend” mentality? Recenlty I’ve been thinking about how we work 5 days a week with our sole motivation being to reach the weekend–when we do, we spend the weekend dreading the work week ahead. It’s a vicious cycle causing us to live in a constant state of longing and anxiety.
Why is this? We don’t (all) hate our jobs. Some of us even love them, yet we destroy a beautiful Sunday dreading what is to come. We live in a constant state of “Sunday Scaries”.
And I’m over it.
