Disclaimer: I was sent a shirt and a pair of earrings from Love Naturally to review. All my opinions are naturally my own. Also, I am wearing only lipgloss (neutral). I left my skin makeup-less. Lastly, I am a naturally curly girl and this hair is all mine. This blog post is picture rich and long with words.
This world has enough hatred, anger, contentment in misunderstanding that sometimes just being alive can get a person down. Not to mention the pressure to pile on beauty products, hair and clothes to fit in and a be accepted or “keep up with the Jones'”. I decided to do this post without make up, wearing my natural hair and casually decorated in some of my most comfortable digs. Sometimes, I think that bloggers can garner the title of shallow because we are always taking a selfie to show case a new makeup or skincare product, because we take numerous pictures all to try and get the few that portray our looks perfectly or because we are always talking about our own thoughts and ideas. I can’t speak for all bloggers but I do know some of the kindest people and they are bloggers and are very encouraging at that.
On my blog and social media, I am always trying to promote positivity and love and that did not go unnoticed. A company that also promotes the message of love and positivity by the name of Love Naturally contacted me to try out and review its products. I was excited because not only is the owner from Alabama (I’m a southern girl at heart) and has family from my hometown of Detroit but she has a great brand that promotes something I strongly believe never fails: love. I know that it’s been said already but true love isn’t expressed enough nowadays. I have been married for almost 13 years and I had never experienced this kind of love. I’m a mother of two miracles and I had never experienced this kind of love. I have friends that are my sisters not by blood but bound by love. My relationship with my mom has grown of course since birth and I feel love from her that I hadn’t felt before with each passing day. Despite difficult times, love prevails. Too often, the motto becomes “return evil for evil” or “eye for an eye”. I have to admit that I’ve been guilty of having this attitude but I am always trying to refine myself and so I pride myself on letting things go and not sweating the small stuff or negativity. Love makes a person feel good on the worst of days. To love naturally to me means love that is organic. Love is not contrived and is pure. Love starts within first. If a person loves him/herself first, it’s easier to express and show love to others.
I hope that my outfit reflects the comforting, relaxing look of love in purity and not putting on airs of impression. I’ve learned to love my flaws, that was so very difficult as I’ve been ridiculed for them. My “flaws” make me unique. They make me…me. On to my look….
I received a simple fitted tee that says “love naturally” in a clean script font on the front and also a cute pair of dangle earrings. The earrings’ design connect to the love of nature with genuine wood accents. The shirt is very much durable and so cozy. Quite frankly, it will easily be my go to tee. The earrings boast superior quality and I can tell they are made with care. While I would not wear them everyday, I know I can get great use out of them. If you’re on the fence about making a purchase, let me tell you how lovely the customer service is. The owner is very kind and I loved the quality of her communication is simply awesome. That is very important to any customer. I am very satisfied with my experience with this company and am happy to help spread love and positivity. Check them out on Instagram to see daily messages of positivity and love!
