If I ever let my head down, it will only be to admire my shoes.

I remember running around the house pretending to be a princess from teddy-land, sprinkling my glitter on all my bears so they can be happy and protect me from my big bad brother. My Dad routinely told me that I’m beautiful and my smile made him smile. He protected me from harm and focused on loving life, but at one point it wasn’t enough to combat the negativity from others. I was too fat or too skinny. My hair, outfit, makeup, was judged and depicted to every last drop. I was never enough. Emotionally, I’ve let a relationship drain me by giving him power to steal my inner peace. I’ve felt alone and broken. I didn’t smile enough, constant anxiety, and spiraled downwards. I thought I hid my emotions well, but people saw it in my eyes. My smile didn’t give Dad good spirits, instead concern. I stressed in proving myself to others that I lost myself by letting their opinions dictate my life.

The moment you decide to be yourself, your inner beauty will resonate. Instead of focusing on imperfections; focus on the bigger picture – experiencing life! I started to pick off every negative aspect that covered up who I once knew because I missed the girl who saw possibilities everywhere, that appreciated happiness when she gave to others, who never set limits and never gave up. Thanks to life awakening experiences and encouragement from a handful of people, I adjusted my sails. I replaced negative thoughts with positive ones, let go to toxic people, and restored my focus on inspiring others. Life is good and better than ever – because I have the power to make it so.

To my lovely ladies: ignore anyone who tries to define you or give limitations in your life. Nothing holds you back more than your own insecurities. You’re beautiful so practice to love yourself more, and dream big through positivity. I’m here to inspire you, one red heel at a time 💗 By the way, I want to mention that I whole heartedly enjoy responding to email messages from you all in Asia. It warms my heart to know that I can encourage and inspire someone across the world from me, and for that I thank you. You give my life a meaning 🙂

Love, Ter

Another beautiful Spring day. It’s breezy and feels great out. Today I’m wearing a Free People blouse that I bought in a large so I could wear as a dress. I tend to wear loose fitting clothes because it’s more comfortable and I could mix it up easier. I love the detail and colors of this top. It’s fun and spunky 🙂

I paired it with sailor inspired heels by Jessica Simpson that I purchased awhile back from Macy’s.

My makeup was kept simple; I used my favorite Chanel pencil eyeliner and Mac Cremecup lipstick.

Another pretty and cool day in Dallas. I’m wearing a long silky military inspired dress that I got from Urban Outfitters. Since it was a little misty outside, I paired it with a pair of combat wedges so I wouldn’t get the dress wet. Have a nice day ❤

I rarely wear orange or red orange because it’s just one of those colors that look horrible against my skin. I took a chance and wore this dress. I fell in love with the Missoni inspired print and had to get it. I paired it with a simple pair of rose colored platforms to compliment the dress. My outfit of the day:

Sometimes, I like to stay out of the norm and think fabulous. I love these platforms because it added 6 inches in height and from the words of a TSA employee, “these could be used as a weapon!”

Have a good night ❤

P.S. Thank you Dada Life for inspiring me to rock these banana earrings, haha!
