Serein Wu lives full time in LA, with her husband and two dogs (a morkie named Dolly, and a long haired chihuahua, named Cooper)
This is Serein's story...
I was depressed, angry, and could not get out of bed. There was a period of therapy and lots of self help books, but there was a piece of the puzzle that was missing. I was dressing to be depressed, baggy sweats, no makeup, and most days I didn’t even brush my hair. If there wasn’t a meeting I had to be presentable for, I stayed in bed.
Fashion and beauty always brought joy to my life. Growing up I lived for my magazine subscriptions! Shopping with my mom was one of my favorite ways to spend my time. Stumbling across tumblr and the YouTube beauty community one day, I realized I had given up. I was robbing myself of the joys of simple things that I loved and could do for myself everyday. This is when I started to dress myself happy. Slowly the work I had been doing on the inside was matching the work that was being done on the outside.
Beauty comes from within and we all have struggles, but we are all beautiful in our own way. Sometimes we just need to fake it till we make it.This does not mean we shouldn’t do the work internally, just that, while we process the work and heal ourselves, we can fake it on the outside till it all comes together.
My blog originated in a time of need, and it has since evolved through the years. I started a YouTube channel, shared my personal life on my second channel thru vlogging, became active on snapchat and instagram and recently launched a podcast called "Behind the Beauty."
My goal is to help people feel and look their best, so they can go out there and conquer whatever life has to throw at them. I want to inspire, motivate, and help people escape whatever troubles they may have. I owe a huge debt of gratitude to so many bloggers and vloggers for where I am today as a human being."
