About

I am a graphic designer and Illustrator, living in Long Beach New York.

All illustrations on this blog are done by me, unless otherwise noted. You can see more of my artwork here.

I decided to start this blog as a forum to talk about beauty and art, and how those things affect each other and all of us. I talk about perceptions of beauty, and why so much emphasis is put on such a narrow idea of what beauty is. I also focus on the products and methods women use to help themselves feel beautiful, and question how we can gain confidence, and why that is such a hard thing for most of us to achieve.

*I am not a health-care professional, my degree is in graphic design and illustration, any comments I make on this site are purely opinion.

**Also, I currently receive no endorsements for this blog, all items are reviewed simply because I like them—if I do review a product that is given to me for promotional purposes, I will note that in the post. Speaking of which, if you want me to review your products please feel free to leave me a comment and I would love to discuss it! You can contact me at justinezwiebel@gmail.com.
