I never used to be this comfortable talking about style . To be honest I wasn’t that comfortable with myself either. Ever since I can remember, I've always wanted to be part of the ‘in’ crowd - always trying to be someone I wasn't. I had worked so hard at it that I eventually found myself wearing beautiful clothes but never feeling stylish; holding down a good job but never feeling successful; showing up but wishing I could hide from the world and though I was present, I lacked presence because I was never truly there.
The more I tried to be this person I believed was worthy of love, the more of myself I lost and the less I believed in love, life and possibility. Who was I? What had my life become? Where was I headed and what did I want for my life?
Searching for the answers to these questions, I realised that happiness was a choice and through the creative power of my thoughts anything was possible. I learned that love was the language of the universe and by focusing on all things good I began my journey toward self-love and wholeheartedness.
I still have a long way to go, but I've come to like what it is that makes me different and though it takes work, I've found the courage to look in the mirror and love what I see. I celebrate this by getting up, dressing up, showing up and making an intention to shine. I've made it my life's work to inspire women to celebrate their individuality; live more authentically and emanate this in their style.
As a qualified Style Coach™️ I founded theurbanaphrodite.com to inspire every woman toward a path of self-love and in so doing become her own best stylist.
As a visitor here, you are part of a community of women who celebrate the concept of authentic style and who understand that style is more than the clothes we wear and how we wear them.
It sets aside all judgements (especially the self-directed kind) and shifts our focus to becoming the best versions of ourselves and in so doing inspiring others to do the same.
Thank you so much for being part of this community. You can become more involved by following us on Instagram, sharing content that another woman may find helpful and by sharing your stories too.
Love and light,
