Why Dents In My Crown?


Dents In My Crown is a motivational and inspirational women’s blog that is aimed and geared towards you! Together, we explore four key areas that I think are close to every women’s heart and that are vital in helping us developed a well-rounded sense of self.

Those four areas are:
1. Motivation & Inspiration: Encouraging you to embrace being comfortable in your own skin and empowering you to live a purpose driven life as we talk about the real life issues that we face day to day.
2. Beauty: I’ll share some tips and tricks on how to look after yourself and from time to time, I may even play with makeup but the real focus will always be encouraging you to learn to accept and appreciate yourself for the true beauty that you are and letting that shine from the inside out!
3. Lifestyle: Creating the life that you love by investing in self-growth and discovering the person you were made to be.
4. Faith: We look into loving God, loving others and choosing to live for a purpose that is greater than ourselves. Together, we’ll look at what it means to live with eternity in mind while trying to make an impact in the present.

So, if you’re ready to fall in love with your God-given beauty, embrace being your authentic self in a world that tells you to be anything but who you truly are and embark on a fulfilling journey of growth and self-discovery then keep scrolling and may you find something below that catches your eye…
