8 Ways to Be “Confidently Beautiful With a Heart:” Cheeky Lessons From Barbie & Beauty Queens
Leave it to Barbie & beauty queens to teach us the aspirational way and the surprisingly relatable way to win at life!
While you and I may never know what it feels like to wear the coveted crown nor fit into Barbie’s dream wardrobe, we all have one thing in common: a desire for the image of beaming confidence. Lest we forget, “with a heart...” in true Miss Universe form.
Photos may show how I seem to have it all together as I get to play beauty queen for a couple of hours per job. Likewise, your social media life may depict such a fairytale too; a life Barbie knows too well.
We all wear our own invisible crowns everyday as we champion for causes dear to us, be it big or small. And to win those tiny victories, confidence will always play a vital role to success.
Well, you’ve come to the right place folks! Today’s episode on this blessed bunny-hopping Easter Sunday is all about light-heartedness fun!
Mind you, this is in no way to be mistaken for my usual straight to & through the heart, motivational posts like: “10 Easy Ways to Build Confidence.”
Though that will always be a favorite of mine for all it’s straightforward sincerity as shared on Instagram, I am aware that some lessons in life must be learned with some humor as also seen here and here.
Barbie will always represent values of daring to be different, playfulness, optimism while forever remaining timeless. In a way, beauty queens are quite similar don’t you think?
The best part is, they are alive for us to see in action! And YOU my dear, I know deep inside as I do too, aspire for those values as well, someway, somehow.
Sometimes we hear the same lessons repeatedly but it takes a certain person or circumstance to suddenly click the switch for that aha moment!
I’m hoping at least for some of you, that moment just might be today.
Mix & Match
Hence, today’s episode: a mix of travel as I take you to Montreal for the largest Barbie Expo in the world, some heartwarmingly relatable anecdotes on confidence as exhibited by true beauty queens themselves and mere candidness from your truly.
Am quite excited to feature Canada again on the VLOG and honestly relieved I was able to marry Barbie & beauty queens in one episode, haha!
Happy Easter everyone and happy viewing!
Much love, light & new beginnings,
