So Worth Loving

Love You. Love People.

Our motto at SWL is, "Love you. Love people."

Even though we cherish that phrase and try to exert that message through all of our clothing and quotes, we wanted to go a step further in sharing this message with all of you and your friends by starting a campaign with this motto on the forefront. 

It all starts with loving yourself. 

This doesn’t mean just taking a selfie or telling someone that you love yourself, it’s that moment when you look into the mirror when no one is watching; that moment when you can see everything from what’s hidden behind your make-up or what’s hidden behind your long sleeves in the summertime. 

We have to learn to embrace ourselves in the loneliest of times.

  • When you’re home, at a park, at school, or anywhere else alone, what do you think of first? 

Do you think of all of the fun and better lifestyles everyone else has because they aren’t by themselves, check social networks to see the lives people want to portray to make themselves look cooler, or even call that one person that you know will comfort you even though it’s wrong and you shouldn’t go down that road again?

Where do you want to be when you’re alone?

Well during this first part of our campaign, we hope that the answer will be with yourself by the end. 

It’s time to fall in love with you. 

Love you.

Imperfectly Perfect

Walking along the beach alone this morning, I found myself drawn to the shells. Not the perfect ones but the ones that have been discarded, apparently not good enough for someone’s shelf. As I picked up one particle bit of shell I stared at it, and rolled it around in my hand. The more I looked at it, the more it reminded me of…well, me. Cracked with lines and worn down from the ocean, but somehow through the cracks, beauty is exposed.

Perfect in it’s imperfections,

just like me.

Target Is Now in the Lead for Worst Photoshop Job Ever With This Horrifying Thigh Gap

I literally cracked up at this!

This article shows that not even computers can achieve the desired look that women often crave to be. We shall not be controlled by what ads say we should look like.

We can’t lose or gain weight with computers. We just continue blooming into beautifully unique individuals. 

Hopefully computers will someday get over their own insecurities. 

"remind yourself of the beauty the future holds and the beauty within yourself"
Minty Fresh Future
Mint is a must have color this spring! Jeans, shoes, shirts! It’s everywhere! Personally, I love it, not only for the cutesy vibe it gives off, but also for the meaning it has to me.  When I see the color mint I think- fresh, clean, & beautiful. It isn’t over powering, but instead subtle, calm, and pretty.   Much like my future- fresh, clean, and beautiful.  I have all the opportunity in the world and my mistakes aren’t holding me back or overpowering me.  It took me a while to realize that the place I am right now is exactly where I need to be.  My past mistakes, failures, and issues have built me into the person I am today.  I know that I have a clean, fresh, beautiful future ahead of me- no matter what mess I have made in the past. So instead of grabbing a pair of regular jean shorts this summer, grab a mint pair and remind yourself of the beauty the future holds and the beauty within yourself.  And of course, never forget that you are So Worth Loving :)
