Compare + Contrast: Shift Your Beauty Social Media Lens


Doctor? Dentist? Maybe even chiropractor? How did we miss the memo that adulting feels like an ongoing list of health appointments in an attempt to keep us from falling apart. Well, go ahead and add vision to the unfolding list of responsibilities. No need to start squirming + hoping your insurance covers it because this one can be self-diagnosed from the comfort of your queen-sized bed.   With social media being the go-to destination of obsessing over your fave celeb, innovative style + of course picture-perfect hair, a thin line is created between inspiration + comparison.

The first was that I had spent a large portion of my existence living bits and pieces of authenticity, but not fully.
