The Photo Shoot
I’ve become obsessed with flaws. You may have noticed since I ended my last post encouraging everyone to learn to love their flaws. We all try to hide them, and I want to expose them. No one is perfect. No matter how many Instagram highlights someone puts up, he or she is still flawed, but everyone is afraid to be themselves and show those flaws. We hide behind them with the different masks we wear. Instead of hiding behind mine, I’m going to lead with them as I work to be a better me.
My Healing Journey
Hello again loves! In my last post I gave an explanation of my history and why I decided to start this blog. I also said that I’m still dealing with a lot of the stress I put my body through. Today, I want to take the time to explain exactly what I meant.
I'm Lauren, aka Just Du Pree, and I want to thank you for reading. This is a space where I share my very personal journey healing from eczema and topical steroid withdrawal (among other things), life lessons I've learned along the way, and occasionally the thoughts of an awkward Black girl (no Issa Rae). I'm a performer and filmmaker, so if you feel so inclined, pop over here to see what goes on in my mind on the regular. If you like what you see, you can stay up to date with my work here. Much love, friends!
