Love She

In this day and age, it can be easy to become confused about one's self worth when certain images and ideals of beauty are constantly displayed in the media. As women, we are constantly bombarded with magazines that advertise things such as, "how to lose weight" or "how to make yourself more desirable to men." Not only that but sometimes we as women can attack each other based off of our own insecurities with ourselves. Either way, it's important to have a healthy image of yourself as a woman as well as a healthy mindset. Too often we believe the lies that others tell us and we don't believe that there is anything special our lives. But that's where we're wrong. Each life was created for a purpose and I truly believe that each of us possesses something divine. Luckily I am not the only woman who feels this way.

Meet Jasmine Marie, owner of the blog, "The Journ3y." I had a wonderful opportunity to connect with her via Twitter and I have been in awe of what she stands for as well as the way that she thinks. Her motto for life and business is, "together we are better," or in other words, teamwork makes the dream work. Jasmine has been cultivating an idea to promote the empowerment of women for quite some time and finally feels that she is ready to share that idea with the rest of the world. This idea has been translated into The Journ3y's online store and the overall theme is entitled, "Love She." "Love She," has been well supported by her friends, family and other like minded entrepreneurs. Through the launch of the t-shirt and accessories, Jasmine wants to empower women to love and accept themselves. The inspiration for the theme of The Journ3y's online store from a post written by Jasmine herself with the title "Love She." Here is an excerpt from the post below:

Love the skin you’re in. Your perceived imperfections make YOU beautiful…in fact they define YOU….Love SHE- the woman inside of YOU…the woman without clothes, the woman that is truly YOU…Love SHE, the woman within

Staying true to her motto, Jasmine has had the amazing opportunity to connect with other women who are entrepreneurs to help make her idea a reality. She has collaborated with Temoura of Bodi Glitz to bring you three wonderful options of animal print earrings, Rhiannon of The Badd & The Beautiful to bring you two options for her beautiful Baddie Bows and Starry of Defined Accessories to bring you a lovely bracelet. The T-Shirt design was created by an amazingly talented graphic artist from Indianapolis, IN named Staci Dartis. Jasmine felt a positive connection upon meeting Dartis and knew that she would be the perfect match for designing the design concept for "Love She." You can check out some of the prior sketch ideas for "Love She" by Dartis as well as the final look for the T-Shirt design here. (Note: The accessories mentioned are exclusive to The Journ3y's online store).

It is always amazing to see women supporting each other and working to empower each other through positive movements. We all are beautiful and talented in only a way that we can be individually. Together we are a force and it's highly important to always remember our worth as we go through life. Please take a moment to support this movement and help spread the word of The Journ3y's online store launch. She has amazing things in store to share with the world and the world could use a little light. Below you can find a few photos of models wearing the "Love She" T-shirt as well as the accessories designed for The Journ3y's online store.

As you can see above, the "Love She" T-shirt is beautifully designed and can be worn different prints. Some suggestions for dressing this T-shirt up would be to add a blazer (solid colors, i.e. black, royal blue, pink, red, green, etc.), nice slim-fitting dress pants or a pencil skirt (solid color OR print inspired) and you can add the heels of your choice. If you would like to wear this T-shirt casually then you can wear a simple cardigan (again, solid colors) over the shirt, pair it with jeans (skinny, boot-cut, or straight leg) or denim shorts and you can also wear either sneakers, flats or sandals. The "Love She" T-shirt is quite versatile and is sure to fit into each individual wearer's style and personality.
