Before I hear it all…. She’s only famous for her family, she is spoiled, she is boring, she’d be no where without her family, she is talent-less, she does not have what it takes to be a model.. whatever. Just know that she’s already beaten you to it. In the best way possible.

NOW that that’s out of the way… Let’s really talk.

I am crushing on Kendall Jenner – HARD.

And last night, after watching her in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion show, was no exception. In fact, if we are being honest, I’ve had this post scheduled to go as soon as I saw her on the runway about a month ago. I just thought today would be the appropriate Wednesday to share my not-so-little crush on her.

Kendall has had all eyes on her since she was a little girl.

Not only did she grow up in one of the most watched families ever, but that family happened to get more and more famous throughout the years. That means we’ve all seen Kendall mature from a little girl to an adolescent to the young woman she is today as more and more spotlight shined on her family. Okay, that’s obviously obvious, but what does that really mean?

She was filmed her entire life, and like all little girls with dreams, she shared hers. However, instead of sharing it to your parents or friends, it was with us all as an audience at a young age. From the show, it was public knowledge that Kendall wanted to be a model when she grows up.

All of us growing up had dreams of what we wanted to do {hell, I still do!}, however a very small amount of of us were being filmed constantly as we shared them.

As she’s gotten older, she’s mentioned numerous times that the one thing she really dreamed about doing was model for Victoria’s Secret. She’s mentioned it flat out in interviews and has been straight up about it.

Ever since she has mentioned she wanted Victoria’s Secret, I kept a keen eye on her as she started her modeling career.

This will come as no surprise, but…
I have a thing for women who follow their dreams.

However, sometimes when you follow your dreams, there can be some backlash. I am not sure where it stems but it is easy to let it grow anonymously behind a computer.

Negativity is a bitch – and a powerful one at that.

Those negative vibes are contagious – and I can tell you, it fucking sucks being on the other end of those vibes, no matter what your background is.

With that negativity, it can prompt you to do one of two things: You either give in to it or you fight against it.

And as I followed Kendall as she started her runway career, that girl sure can fight, and she fights back damn hard.

People can keep hating on Kendall, go ahead, but they are only fueling her fire to succeed. Word for word, in a recent post, she has said, regarding haters:

“You just have to remember that it’s them, not you… But I’ve gotten to a place where the negative feedback can just totally fuel me to be even better.”

When I see Kendall, I see a girl who is fighting to make a name for her SELF. And her fighting sure paid off.. Trophies include Balmain, Chanel, Givenchy, Fendi, Calvin Klein… to name a few.

And what is she fighting for? It’s obviously not the money. She is fighting {and winning, mind you} for her CAREER. She is fighting for the dreams she had ever since she was a little girl. Well, here she is, at 20, slaying it on the runways, and flat out ignoring anyone saying she could do otherwise.

She has been on the runway for years now, but she just now landed her coveted spot on Victoria’s Secret.

Every.single.picture of Kendall from the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, she is radiant and beaming. She is absolutely glowing with happiness. It is so incredibly apparent that she has accomplished one of her biggest dreams & that moment is quite possibly one of her proudest of her career.

To put it bluntly, if she gave into the negativity, she would not have accomplished her dream of walking the Victoria’s Secret Runway. Simple as that.

It is easy to say they just gave it to her because of who she is… and quite frankly, I do have to agree. They did give it to her because of who she is.. a Model.

A damn good model, at that.

By the way, those vibes I was talking about? You know, how negativity can be contagious and powerful? Well, guess what? So can positivity.

Positivity can actually outweigh and spread more rapidly than those nasty negative vibes.

Keep killing it, Kendall. You motivate me to work hard, believe in my dreams, and work my ass off to make them happen, as you claim one runway after the other.

Love,
Shannon

  • did you guys miss the glitché? I know it’s so 2017 but I lowkey missed it. Anyways that’s not why we are here but this dope gem of a wine from @domaineenchantoir is. This wine is SO GOOD that on first sip, @erikschuchard & I bought a case on @klwines and had it delivered to us in less than 24 hours, it’s that good.

2015 DOMAINE DE L’ENCHANTOIR “LE PIED À L’ÉTRIER” SAUMUR PUY-NOTRE-DAME ROUGE {~$17 !!!! } :: fun fact, but this winery is certified organic. Cool right? Anyways, like most in the middle Loire Valley, Cabernet Franc is the star & this wine is 100% cab franc. Super fragrant! The first thing I thought of when I tried it was leather studded rose petals. There are also notes of tobacco, black cherry, black tea, cranberry, & hibiscus. One thing to note is that there is NO green pepper on the note or palette. Seriously, it’s not vegetal at all bc it’s not a regular cab franc, it’s a cool cab franc. But seriously this wine will blow your mind and rock your world at the same time. Also I want a perfume in this, like who doesn’t want to smell like a leather studded rose?
🔺
It’s very food friendly but good on its own. Medium bodied and extremely well balanced. It pairs well with charcuterie, smoked fish, grilled meats or vegetables, & sunsets. We’ve been on a grilled pizza kick which would be so good with this too! Grilled Thai or Vietnamese dishes would also be off the charts.
🔻
Y’all. I can’t even scratch the surface on how good this wine is. It seriously gets better with each sip. If you see it, BUY IT. If you can’t find it, look online. I got along without it before I met it but I sure as hell couldn’t do it now. 🍷 #trustmeimasomm
