Months ago, when I announced that I'd be writing my very first book, a beauty guide, I received a tremendous amount support and feedback. I also got a lot of shocked reactions of people telling me how amazing it was that I was actually writing a book. Before I made the announcement I had already been writing the book a year prior and even though I was working on something that meant to much to me, I didn't realize how big of a deal it was the way you guys all did. It wasn't until this week when I officially finished writing the book that it hit me -- I wrote a book.

Part of the reason I didn't realize how major writing a book was, is because I'm self-publishing. I'm working with a new, independent book publisher (Sugar Run Publishing) who has helped me so much a long this journey. Self-publishing means you're doing basically all of the work yourself. You have to stay motivated, you have to set deadlines for yourself and you're on top of making sure the work is getting done. Looking back and realizing now how much work I put in and how much more there is left to do I have to admit, I'm very proud of myself. I'm going to make sure this book is perfect for all the young girls out there that I'm hoping will read this beauty guide.

The takeaway lesson today: Celebrate all of your accomplishments no matter how big or small they might appear to be. In reality they're actually pretty major!

PS. The working title for the book is-- Guide To Glam: A beginners guide to beauty & confidence. Do you guys love this title?
