The Essence Of… Where Loving the Inside is 1st, and Styling the Outside is 2nd.

Hey, Gorgeous!

Whether you stumbled upon The Essence Of… by accident or finally typed it in your web browser because I harassed you on Instagram and begged you to do so, I’m so glad you’re here. The Essence Of… is one of many more endeavors to come where I talk to my girls through media!

Here at The Essence Of… you can get the scoop on all things woman: Life, Style and Beauty! The Essence Of… is unique because it not only gives you the in on haute trends and makeup must-haves, but it encourages you to first find your beauty within. I’ve come to realize that once we discover who we really are and fall in unconditional love with ourselves, styling the outside is a breeze! As girls we have to stick together and help each other out, and The Essence Of… is my way of doing my part.

In case you’re wondering the significance of the number 7 in my web address, basically theessenceof.com was taken so I had to get creative:-) I chose 7 because it’s my favorite number and has showed up so many times in my life. As a kid, my class number was always 7 (I’m assuming because “G” is the 7th letter in the alphabet), I have 7 letters in my first name, and I was born January 7th 1987 (7 letters in January too!). 7 is also the number of Divine Completion and Perfection. Above all else, I want you to know that you are complete and perfect as you are–just like the number 7! You’re beautiful and brilliant in your very own way. I hope that The Essence Of… will encourage you to take every talent, experience, mistake, intent, failure and triumph and utilize them all to learn, love and maximize your essence!

Love you much,

Essence  (Essy)
