I think self-improvement is of the utmost importance.

You should always be striving for a better version of you. NEVER settle.

That’s why I have Crest Whitestrips on right now. My lil chiclets need some serious TLC & I am answering the call of duty. Call it vain. I don’t care. I call it self-love. But if you’re like my husband you can just call me vain.

I can’t help it. I’m a self-conscious creature who happened to drink too much red wine in 2014 & is now paying the price with a lackluster smile. First world problems? Yes. But when your nose is as big as mine, you’d try to eliminate as many facial flaws as possible, too.

Love your flaws, ladies. But fix them if you can.
