Yes, it takes work, but aren’t we all works in progress? Taking care of ourselves daily by eating and drinking healthy, treating ourselves to simple beauty regiments and daily exercise pays off.
“I did not always look like this. I worked hard to get to where I am today, ” Sims declared. “Do you think I looked like this when I was 19 years old? Well I didn’t . I worked my ass off. I was 20 pound overweight. I had brown hair, I had braces, I had acne, ” she says.
Inspiration is all around you notes Sims. “As the years go by I changed. I was like a sponge and I am still like a sponge. I look at magazines. I look at celebrities, I look at other moms. Anybody can change themselves .I am a firm believer in that you can do anything you want to do. I am from Kentucky.I went to public school. I have been a waitress, and a really bad waitress. I was a sales lady and a really good one because I was honest .I would tell customers you cant wear that but you can wear this and I always had my returning customers. If someone said to me you should do this I was ok I will try it. Some women are critical and they take it so personally. I have been told my calves are too bigs, my arms are too big, I’m too fat, your hair should be longer your hair should be shorter.I cant believe you would wear that .I have heard it all .”
She’s can relate to the every day woman. “I’m not different from you. Anything you can say I can probably say that I have been told that. I have learned from so many . I took tips from people. I always suggest that you should find someone you look up to and learn from them . Also, learn your body.
Want to feel good about yourself, Sims a big yoga enthusiast asked .”Get out of the sweatpants and put on a pair of jeans,” she says. Adding that she doesn’t follow trends . “Once it looks good on I just put a sweater or a jacket on over it.”
The “House of Style” host and “Las Vegas” star asked that those attending do something for her, “Never ever say you are going on a diet and never look at a picture and be like ugh God, I hate this picture.'”
Speaking of pictures Sims shared and showed how she’s been storing all of the thousands of photos and videos she’s amassed over the years especially those of her husband Scott Stuber and 2-year old son Brooks Alan . Sims told the group that she’s been using LYVE App the new photo sharing and storing app that saves and collects all of her photos and videos she has stored on different devices –mobile phones, computers, cameras, and ipads. She says that Lyve has really helped her to keep photos in one place . “They have installed a small device in my home office and has been working to collect and catalog just about every photograph and video I’ve ever captured with a digital camera. I don’t envy the device. During the last decade just like almost everyone else on the planet, I went bananas for photos and videos. I estimate I’ve more than 20,000 pictures and clips spread across phones, tablets and a handful of far-flung folders on a handful of computers,” she says.
