If I Told You You Were Beautiful...

If I Told You You Were Beautiful...

One of the first themes I played around with when I started Bad Girl Confidence was "Beauty." It is always intriguing how you could ask two people their thoughts on this topic and get different answers. As a black woman, I always struggled with that definition because there were so many messages around me that clearly stated that my beauty was not the type of beauty that deserved recognition.

So in an act of defiance (and with a little bad girl confidence), I decided to ask close friends and my followers what beauty meant to them. Surely, if we could start putting out our own ideals of beauty, we could begin drum out the loud resounding "no" that we face when contemporary norms of beauty declare us unworthy. Here are some of the older submissions I found. Feel free to comment below what Beauty means to you!
