Dove Unboxing | Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful
Even when we were younger, we already have our own standards and definitions of what the word “beautiful” means. When I was a kid, my older cousins would always come to me and tell me that I should call them “Tita Ganda” or “Tita Sexy“, and I, of course would always oblige. I guess my main point is even at a young age, we already know what the word beautiful means. And as we grow older, our standards change. It’s not just about the aesthetics anymore. Things that I would never consider beautiful back when I was younger, are now on the top of my list.
Oh, please don’t get me wrong. I don’t think of myself as the most beautiful girl or whatever. I’m just saying, that I never thought of myself as beautiful. As I mentioned before, standards change.
From nursery to college, I was never the pretty one. I have often been bullied to the point wherein I don’t want to go to school anymore. I didn’t have anybody else to talk to except my mama (and my friends when I was in college). She was the one who would always make me feel like I am perfect in every way. Beautiful. But of course, sometimes, that’s just not enough. And you know there are days wherein you tell yourself “Of course she would say that. She loves me…”
But as I grew older, and with the help of a few close friends, I get to feel more confident. I became the noisy one. The one who gets caught laughing out really and obnoxiously loud. Gaining that kind of confidence opened a ton of opportunities for me, I never knew would be possible. I got a job few months after graduating, I started blogging about tons of stuff, which gained me a lot of online friends who I am still FB friends with even up to now. Then I started watching YT tutorials about makeup and I decided blogging about them instead. And that lead me here.
If I were to travel back in time and meet me in 2007, I probably would be laughing rather than amazed. Because back then, I couldn’t even draw my own brows and I didn’t even know the importance of an eye primer
Dove believes every woman should celebrate her real beauty. That said, and to summarize, I just wanted to let you guys know that we have our own qualities that make ourselves unique which therefore makes us beautiful. Don’t go comparing yourself to what you see out there because you’ll end up being disappointed and it wont help. Don’t let society dictate to you what should be beautiful and what you should look like. Trust me. Don’t let the bullies get to you because at the end of the day, you’ll realize that they have their own flaws too and they’re just trying to bring you down to make them feel better about themselves. Don’t let them win. Be confident and grow from there. Be your own kind of beautiful.
Dove sent me a package last month with their famous products, most of them my favorites. I would like to share to you what’s inside this really cool and personalized box.
Along with those, they also sent me the items below which are really cute. I can’t wait to use them
I am so excited to use all of these. Meanwhile, I hope you still get my message. I am very happy to be a part of Dove’s campaign this year in imparting their message. Now, this is my question. What’s your definition of the word beautiful? In other words, what’s your kind of beautiful? I’ll see you guys next time.
