Living in a world of ideals isn’t easy. Idealistic beauty is one of the loudest messages we as women hear on a daily basis, in spite of strong movements of inclusiveness and diversity. Women everywhere, including myself, feel the pressure of perfection. When we walk into the beauty department, we see products that market with the words “Flawless”, “Airbrush”, “Photo-Ready”, and “Eraser”. The message that is continuously being sold to us: You are not perfect, you need this, this, and that.
You don’t need this, this, and that. You are beautiful. You are amazing just as you are.
When it comes to all of it – fashion, makeup, accessories, hair, we need to remember it’s adornment. We need to feel free to play with these things rather than let them define who we are. Don’t let anyone or anything tell you that you are less than perfect as you are. The world is your runway, feel free to strut what your mama gave you.
When it comes to those adornments, I tend to gravitate towards more timeless and effortless looks, with everything from my makeup to my clothing. That said, I like seeing people’s individual personalities through their adornments. Just you, your confidence, and the chosen extras that capture your essence.
That’s what I love about Strut Jewelry. Alyssa Spaceman, designer, creates these amazing pieces that are just as unique as each person that wears them.

What makes me feel free and beautiful?
Laughing, my children, blown-out hair, kisses on my forehead, great fitting jeans, Shania Twain tunes, black stilettos, silver hoop earrings, road trips with the windows down and the wind in my hair, smiling without reservation…
