I’ve come to understand that beauty is an attitude that transcends how your body is shaped, your budget, societal norms, old thinking and habits. It’s been my experience that so few of us really know how to approach it. My history as an actress, dancer, boutique owner, writer, teacher, stylist, and makeover artist had me primarily approaching beauty from the outside. Somewhere in there I found myself working with the women who came before me from a different point of view. While it seems superficial to start with the external, often it provides a boost that allows one to tackle the habit self criticism.
