Not A Model Weekly Mantra - The most important relationship...

With the newly minted extra hour of sleep from daylight savings, the first thought that comes to my mind is, "November is the darkest, longest month of the year." 

With the holiday season approaching, we will soon be catering to the needs of those we love. Here at Not A Model I'm all for altruism, but sometimes we forget to be kind to the person in the mirror. It's easy to be negative, it's easy to put yourself down, it's easy to smile at every person on the street, but not to your own reflection.

Try and be kinder to yourself. Treat your body with care. Give yourself a daily compliment instead of waiting for someone to pay you one. Remember that if you're not good to yourself, you're no good to anyone else.

This week's quote comes from my favourite female designer, Diane von Furstenburg. After hearing her speak in New York a couple of years ago, I've always looked up to her, and her motto on life.. 

"The most important relationship in life is the relationship you have with yourself, because no matter what happens, you will always be with yourself"- Diane von Furstenburg
