What you see

First of all, I want to say THANK YOU to each person who took the time to read my post. I was very nervous at first but the amount of love and feedback that I received is beyond what I could have imagined.

Today, I want to talk about perception. How you as a person view the world, your relationships, etc.

We are currently living in a world where, what you see is NOT what you get (most of the time). There are tons of social media accounts posting about their wonderful unbreakable relationships, all the beautiful trips they take around the world, people with the most insanely perfect bodies, facial features, expensive cars, clothes and the list goes on. None. of. that. is. real… we have all fallen into this cycle of trying to find perfection because of our perception of others. Well here is a little reminder that we are human beings with faults, dysfunctional relationships, bodies with scars, a little bit of unwanted fat, living paycheck to paycheck. We are the same as the ones who post about their perfect life. Don’t compare yourself to others, don’t make your life less valuable and beautiful because you think it isn’t good enough, fun enough or extravagant enough. Don’t ever let your perception of others ruin what you have. You are beautiful and so is your life, because it isn’t perfect.

I am guilty of doing that too, I look at others and say “ wow how perfect are they?! “, when in reality my life is good enough for me. Sometimes we don’t value the wonderful things we have in life because we always want more. It’s okay to want more and have the drive to do better, but be happy and don’t seek perfection. Understand that your perception of other people is just that, because behind closed doors we are all very similar, fighting the same battles.

I really hope you guys enjoy reading these posts. I will have many different topics to talk about, Fashion, Travel, and my favorite ( Life). If anyone has any feedback or questions, feel free to message me. I am always here to listen and talk. Until next time friends.

Dream Big,

Here we go.

It’s 12:39pm, I’m sitting in my cubicle eating my 3 for $5 canned soup because I spent wayyy too much money at target yesterday on my lunch break, (Target gets me every time!). Recently, I’ve had this burning fire inside of me to branch out, to be more creative, to be more vulnerable and put myself out there. People who know me, know that I am very reserved and am very private, so naturally doing anything public is challenging for me.


Since I was young I have dreamt of being successful, being some kind of doctor, having a big house, being married and living what I call the “Barbie life”. Reality is, things just didn’t go as planned. After high school I went to community college and tried very hard to stick with it but I soon realized that it JUST wasn’t for me, and guess what?.. it’s okay! I found my path and my way just fine without that little piece of paper saying that I went to some college to study business management or whatever.


Growing up I always compared myself to others (still do, but try not to), I see other people who are doing great things and I wonder why can’t I? Why can’t I do that, why can’t my life be like that? What do they have available to them that I don’t?.. Comparing yourself to others is just horrible for your psyche. Just remember, that you are not like anyone in this world, your life is not like anyone else’s and never will be. You are responsible for yourself, your path and what YOU choose to make of it.


Today I have decided to start my blog, I’ve had this account sitting for two years and I never touched it because of the fear that people would be like “who does she think she is?”. Truthfully I don’t care who you think I am. This is something that I am choosing to do because it will make me happy, it will let me express myself and it will allow me to tell my story my way. So if there is something that you want to do, whatever it is, do it. Don’t wait for luck, don’t compare yourself to others, just do YOU. Create your own opportunities. Tomorrow isn’t promised, so take life and enjoy every single second of it. Until next time friends.

Dream Big,

Vanessa Navarro.
