Back in May, I came across Ashley's blog post about companionship, relationship "goals," and the overall "talking" idea. I immediately had to tap in and read her "Dating" or Dating? post because at the time, I was dealing with my own fair share of "companionship" issues to say the least. Once I read it, I felt like I wasn't alone. I wasn't the only person confused about how hard it is to date or find love in this day and age....

con·fi·dence: a feeling of self-assurance arising from one's appreciation of one's own abilities or qualities.

All women react differently to this word. The meaning varies for each of us because of our personal thoughts and experiences. However, it shouldn't divide us but rather bring us closer. We should push for the next woman to exude confidence. Instead of stating what a confident woman should be or the type of energy she s...

Every woman has her own set of flaws that she struggles with on a day to day basis. Some women may feel uncomfortable discussing their insecurities while others embrace them. It's often tough for women to accept their own flaws and address their insecurities in a society that seems to glorify "flawless" and "perfect" women. Certain body types, images, and lifestyles are promoted rather than what's...

I've always loved flowers and admired how beautiful they are. All of the different arrangements, the scents, and the wide range of colors. I remember when I was younger, about the age of five or six, all I would ask for as birthday gifts were red roses, nothing else. My favorite thing to draw or paint in any of my art classes were different types of flowers because I loved the way they looked. When I came across Sukii on...
