Can I be real a second? For just a millisecond? (and can I do a #NoMakeupMonday on a Wednesday?) Someone once gave me the advice, "be the person you needed when you were 16." I think that's such great advice. I don't know about the rest of y'all, but I get caught up so easily in wondering if I am fulfilling the dreams I had as a teenager. But that's not what's important. In many ways, I've failed, but I've succeeded in a thousand other ways I could never have imagined back then. I haven't become 16-year-old Sarah plus time because that's not what 16-year-old Sarah needed. She didn't need someone perfect to look up to: she had those in droves. She needed someone flawed but happy to tell her, "it's going to be a miserable hot mess of a journey, but it's going to be worth it." Someone who embraces their flaws, laughs at their stumbles, and gets back up to fight.
So this goes out to 16-year-old Sarah. I dedicate this #NoMakeup, #NoFilter, exhausted, bags-under-the-eyes, beacned, unruly-browed selfie to you. You turn out pretty cute, huh?

When #wearchaargwednesday and #nomakeupmonday are kinda daily things for you its been an insane week [moved back to school, started my 7 credit summer organic chemistry/lab classes AH + unpacked my entire life]. Its made it hard to #rally for morning workouts but im excited to get better once things calm down a bit. Ill try to remember to post a #sweatieselfie when i do the ~booty~ workout this evening #uwchaarg#chaargambassador
My biggest regret is all the time I've wasted putting makeup on my face. I stopped applying everyday about 4 years ago. Now I only wear it for events I wear four products MAX. My skin is SO much clearer and healthier and I FEEL better. Side note: changing my diet helped so much. DO IT LADIES!
