What I Love About Me ~ Maria from Little Tree Vintage

what i love about me

this summer, i am hosting a new weekly series called the what i love about me series. my vision is to get a variety of women talking about their favorite part of themselves. It could be a physical quality, an awesome ability, personality trait, etc. :)

i hope to help reverse negative conditioning from society, and promote women realizing and celebrating the positive aspects of themselves.

read on about this week's amazing woman, maria of little tree vintage.


Hi there Chantilly readers, this is Maria from Little Tree. I am so excited to be a part of this amazing series about women loving themselves, and being able to embrace the characteristics that make them who they are. When you think about a woman who says she loves certain things about herself, most will say "she's so cocky" or "she's so into herself" but in reality, if we can't love ourselves, how will others love us? I think society has given us the weird idea that it's bad to love yourself, and in fact you shouldn't. They say that you should always find something you need to "work on" or something that isn't "perfect."

Over time I realized that these ideas put into our heads are not right. They aren't real, and they sure as hell are not the model that should be followed. Love yourself, and when you wake up in the morning, embrace every little imperfection, because it's yours, and yours alone.

I am here today to talk about my favorite part of me. This may sound strange, but I love my hair. It's been a love/hate relationship since as long as I can remember. It gets frizzy in the heat, my bangs separate on a daily basis, and it's crazy and wild when I don't do anything to it. Even though all of these things are annoying, I still love how thick it is, the length, and how versatile it can be. It can be curly, straight, and even wavy sometimes. My hair has been long, short, red, brown, blonde, and even a dark shade of purple. And it's all mine, it comes with me everywhere, and even though it's unruly, it's perfect in its own way.

  1. Lovely idea! Especially in this blogging world where you feel the need to be a size 6 just to take photos of yourself. I love that you're having lovely ladies say what their best feature is, instead of focusing on the worst, which I've seen even the 'well known' bloggers do ('oh my calves are fat, my shoulders are wide, blah blah')

    Love it! x
