Someone you SHOULD know.

I have always been inspired by Rachel Stewart.  I first came across her through her jewelry line which is beyond amazing.  Her pieces have a story to tell and when my bank account starts behaving itself I'm definitely going to be wearing her pieces on the regular.  Though my attention was captured by her jewelry I must admit I have some serious hair envy.  She has some envy-inducing natural hair.  While browsing a blog of hers a month ago I discovered that she had chopped off her hair.  Now if this was 5 years ago I would have been utterly shocked, but I have a totally different relationship with my hair now.  Cutting it all off is not a problem for me.  I freed myself from that thought that was ingrained in me when I was growing up.  The idea that I couldn't cut my hair because it took so long to grow it.  Truth is I can cut my hair whenever I want and it can grow as fast as I want it to grow.  I just have to put in the time and effort to take care of it. I have chopped off all my hair twice in the last 5 years and I have moments of wanting to do it again....but... I digress.  So if you don't know Rachel Stewart here is the little photo intro of who she is (wearing her own jewelry).  Check out her blog and her store.

I salute you, Rachel Stewart, for being a FABULOUS curvy girl who inspires me daily.  I'm truly grateful.
