sisterhood brings happines

It brings us great joy to see women celebrating each other, rather than competing with one another! Here at My Beauty BFF we encourage community, sisterhood + having conversations that really matter! In the BIG PICTURE, souls are most important, so we want to make sure that soul care can be found in the details of our daily lives!

real beauty is an inside job 

There's so much talk about "inner beauty" floating around the beauty industry, but do we know what that truly is and what it practically looks like? At My Beauty BFF we know that Authentic Beauty starts in your soul + works its way outward! Real beauty is always tied to goodness + to truth. These are what we want to grow + focus on!

faith is our fuel 

One of my favorite ways to sum up my life is with this scripture: "I run in the way of your commands for you have set my heart FREE!" Psalms 119:32 Once you've had a taste of true freedom, complete joy + unconditional love, there's no way you'd ever want to go back! The Word of God + the love of Jesus has changed my whole life, for the absolute best!
