I have been a huge fan of Beautiful Disaster since I first saw it back in 2017. It was then that I decided I had to purchase an item, and have made purchases every year since then. Something stood out to me about the brand. It was special. It says, yes, it is ok to have flaws and to have been broken, as we all are in some way, but let's learn from it, grow from it, thrive a little more each and everyday. My story goes as follows....
My name is Jovita. I'm a mother of 2, divorced once, a domestic abuse survivor. Glad that's all behind me. I lost my mom in 2018, and that spiraled me into a deep depression. My current marriage was on the brink of collapsing, and my health was failing, not just mentally. I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease (finally) right before my mom passed away. For years I suffered in silence, not wanting to burden anyone. Then in 2020, I fell very ill due to contracting Lyme disease. My immune system was decimated, and the immunosuppressant drugs used for Crohn's was working against me. In 2021, I ended up with serious dental abscess infections that spread to my sinus cavities and into the bone structure of my face. Needless to say, I had to stop treatment for Crohn's immediately, and have full extraction surgery done on my teeth. The hits just kept coming, one after another. It wore me down. In 2021, I contracted Covid and was very sick over Thanksgiving, and had another covid infection over Christmas of 2022. So here we are, in 2023. I'm trying a new doctor to manage my Crohn's disease. I monitor my body due to the wonky things that happen with Lyme disease. I've recently had to quit my job due to ongoing issues from covid, pnemonia, and Crohn's flares. But I keep going. I won't quit. The picture I submitted isn't the best but it's a true depiction of the real me. It's screams, I'm exhausted but I'm gonna give it hell!! I chose this photo also due to the fact that I'm wearing my BD hoodie and joggers, my latest purchase. The comfort level is amazing, this outfit keeps my skinny ass warm, as I'm always freezing from Raynaud's syndrome. My hair and makeup or lack of can look like a dumpster fire, yet when I wear this or any of my BD clothing, I get TONS of compliments!! And that in itself is a confidence booster. You see your brand represents something so special, yet it's different for everyone. It seems to give a sense of empowerment, at least for me. It's so hard to explain, but it's almost like a shot of medicine! From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank you for creating Beautiful Disaster. I just feel like anytime I put any BD clothes on, a different side of me emerges, as if to say, we got today babe, regardless of how good or bad, we got your back!! Thank you for that Christina, every woman deserves comfort and security and your clothing does just that!
