Refreshing to hear such a unique take on beauty standards

Love everything about this, particularly how positive it is and the emphasis on using beauty to make you feel good about yourself and express your identity over appeasing social norms. Was also lovely to hear Bethan being so pro going self employed - was quite inspiring. Well done Ruby 💪🏼
