Why a faux tan DOES NOT equal faux confidence

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.

Sunday Scaries & Selfcare Sunday

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.
