Why You Should Learn To #LoveTheMirror

Is "love the mirror" on your list of things to accomplish in 2015? It should be.

Baker hopes that her #LoveTheMirror campaign will inspire people to focus on loving themselves, no matter what is going on in their lives.

"Our bodies are installation art that we curate publicly," Baker wrote in a blog post introducing the series. "Our bodies are magnificent houses for everything else that we are. Our bodies are a part of us, just like our kindness, talents, and passion. Yes, we are so much more than our outer shell, but our outer shell is an integral part of our being too. This is why loving the mirror is critical for complete and total self acceptance."
