Hi Beauties, me again!
Soooo.. for the longest time I was so so so intimidated by all these beautiful and successful bloggers that seemed like they had it all figured out. I would compare myself to their beauty, their posts, their number of following, and even the perfect life I THOUGHT they had. It wasn’t until I ran into an old High School friend that I realized, that social media can really portray a lifestyle, you’re not actually living. While she and I caught up about life after high school, she said a sentence that just got me by surprise and made me realize that I had to do some changes. She said ” It must be going well for you, it seems like your husband gives you whatever you want and lets you do whatever you want.” in that moment I felt like I wanted to cry hahaha not because she was wrong (which she definitely was!), but because I felt like I had been lying to all my social media followers. I knew that moving forward I had to be more R E A L about what I had and didn’t have, I had to show some of the “bad” things going on so people didn’t think I had a perfect life. In no way do I have a perfect life! I have my struggles, I have tons of insecurities and I am still working on being more christ-like daily. Let’s remind ourselves that when we see someone we THINK has a perfect life, they probably don’t, but we should still support and encourage regardless!
I want my blog to be encouraging and be helpful for the everyday women trying to feel understood and included. I would love to help women (and myself) understand that the number of likes on a picture, and the clothes you wear, does not define you. Your heart towards people, being humble and being kind whether someone is watching or not- that is what matters. I know that now a days, it’s so hard not to compare – trust me I still do sometimes – but when we do, we can’t let it bring us down. Instead we need to use it as motivation… N O T competition, because thats not healthy either. (I talk from experience) God has enough light to let everyone shine, so let’s not waste time – honestly- trying to be like someone cause we will never be fulfilled. Remember you are beautiful because ” You are fearfully and wonderfully made.” Psalms 139:14
Lots of Love,
Okay I know there’s like trillion Bloggers out now, but it seems like so much fun, and I wanted to join and be part of it!
Hiiii, I’m Michelle aka @mtcorderoo on insta, and i’m born and raised in the beautiful orange county! I come from a close mexican family that I love with all my heart! I’m 23 going on 24 (t minus 19 days) and i love love loveeee spring! Like come on, how can I not love the flowers, colors, and the OC spring weather??? I mean, I am an April Baby, so that’s probably why…
Growing up I was always a super girly girl. I remember getting my moms shoes and walking around the house in her skirts that I’d turn into dresses and her shoes that would boost me up to the sky… I would find any excuse to wear a dress and even make my brothers do “shows” with me. I had sleepovers where we’d do hair and makeup and even make a whole barbie town and make my mom promise me not to ruin it so we can keep playing the next day. I loved being girly, and I STILL DO! If it was up to me I’d wear pretty dresses all day, everyday!
My Favorite things in life are dresses, flowers, my husband, ice cream, bread, makeup, balloons,dancing, and of course, shoes. Pretty girly, wouldn’t you say? I hope that in creating this blog you can see who I am and get inspiration for yourself. I know I am still “young”, but I feel like I could give some great advice in life, beauty, fashion, and even share some major life lessons.
Life is meant to be enjoyed, so I hope that as I grow and enjoy, it’ll inspire you to do the same. Lets just be the best version of ourselves ! 💖
New Year, Old Me…?
I can’t believe it’s already 2019, time really needs to slow down because I do not have it together. Most people say ” New Year, New Me” but I’m actually trying to be the old happy me… the end of 2018 really had me all messed up. The last 7 months I was definitely struggling with myself, and in all honesty, I still am. I struggled because I just felt/feel so out of place. I didn’t know what my purpose was. I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life, or career. I lost all my love and passion for Jesus, makeup and fashion and anything I really cared about. (Besides Isaac) I was so uninspired, that I never wanted to get up or even get ready. The days that I would get ready I’d force myself too, in hopes that it would make me feel better about myself, but it didn’t. In fact it actually made it worse for me, because I felt like I was just lying to myself and lying to everyone. I struggled so much with myself and with everything around me, and it was so hard for me to even ‘act’ happy. I felt so far from God – which I know was/is part of my problem. I put God on the back burner, and I put other things before Him. I KNEW in my heart that, that was my problem. I’d cry and pray for Him to help me and put that desire back into my heart…but how is He supposed to move mountains for me if I cant even move around my schedule for Him? 2019 I’m working on being better; I am still working to give God, His rightful place in my life, and in everything I do. I know by doing that God will give me the love and passion, because GOD IS LOVE. I know God promises to make something good out of the storm that brings devastation to my life. In Romans 8:26 it says “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[i] have been called according to his purpose. ” I know by me getting my life in order, God will give me all the desires of my heart; and right now that’s just to be truly happy and to have love. That’s what I am working on… to change my relationship with God, so HE can change my heart and change my life. As of right now I still don’t know what the purpose of my life is, but I am willing to let God guide me. I know that under all this confusion and depression I love God, I love my family, I love makeup and fashion, and I love working for the Lord. Now its just up to me to let God in….
Cheers to what God will do in 2019!
