Curvy and happy-part 2

I spoke to a friend once who told me the way she learned to love her self was to write down a list of ten things she liked about her self and read them everyday until you start to believe them. The visible problem is though if you feel the need to do this, chances are that you don’t like much anyway. I sat down and tried to think “what do I like about myself?” but only 3 thins came to mind and I can assure you my belly, bum legs and boobs were  not any of them. Out of all the women I know I don’t know a single one who has got no body issues at all. Its like its ingrained inside us buy the question is why?
As you may notice I ask why a lot and no it’s not because iv got no idea my self and am waiting for someone to tell me I just don’t understand. I don’t understand why it is we do this to one another and yes it is us not the men. How many men do you know who think Nicole richi is attractive?  None. How many do you know who think Kelly brook is attractive? Or Jennifer  Lopez? Exactly. But you see there lays another problem because those women although the  are not skinny they have perfectly round proportioned bodies not like most of us normal girls. When men look at a woman’s body the tend to see the overall shape and that is what they like, that figure of 8 shape. Us girls on the other hand tend to, like in every other part of life, tend to see the small details.
How many men do you know who care about things like stretch marks and cellulite? Not many is it? But now how many  women do u know who don’t sleep at night because of their cellulite situation.


Curvy and happy

This time last year I weighed in at a massive 70 kilos. Now when I say massive I mean for my ting 5 ft 1 and a half frame. I was a huge mountain of a girl and I had never been that big before.
This may be the beginning of the journey for me, the beginning of self acceptance but seen as how I’m sat hear looking at pictures and article of shrinking celebrities   I somehow highly doubt it.
You see, in my mind I have always been the “fat girl”. At the age of 10 I got my first period and therefore got boobs and a bum very soon too. I always loved the curvy hourglass shape women had but at the age of 10 11 12 I didn’t fully understand what it meant. it bothered people around me that I was a bit curvier then average and so it started to bother me. By the age of 13 I started dieting, silly stupid diets that involved a cucumber and horrid dry toast. Did it work? Yes. I lost weight and at the age of 14 I was around 8 and a half stone and everyone said I looked grate. But by then it had become clear to everyone that I have a problem. But the problem with so many of us is we are not anorexic or bulimic and super skinny, we r just insecure and our minds are so filled up and over occupied with how we should look that we can never stop and think that maybe, just maybe we are fine the way we are?
Why is it that we, as women have this constant need to better ourselves? We do we feel the need to compare our self’s to other woman? The answer is very simple: I don’t know.
I don’t know and you don’t know but hopefully at the end of this process maybe some of us should have an idea.
Why is this coming from and beauty bloger you may ask? I have dealt with this all my life and if I can help one girl deal with this, I will be more then happy.

take care xxxx


Product love- Laura mercia secret concealer

All my life I have suffered from darkness under my eyes, and I am always on the lookoout for a great under eye concealer to make me look fresh, polished and awake!

A  perfect under eye concealer should:
  • Be a smooth lightweight consistency
  • Have amazing coverage but not look cakey and crease.
  • instantly brighten up the area
  • Be easy to blend
  • Stay looking freash all day long.
Not too much to ask for is it now?!

During my life long serech for the perfect concealer, I came across the Laura mercia secret concealer.

This is such a lovely product. I  have it in the shade 3, which has a lovely peachey undertone so it does an amazing job at covering up the sleepless nights!

It's a lovely creamy consistency, super easy to blend (I  use a fluffy eyeshadow brush to blend it perfectly) and yes, it is pricey but oh so worth it as you need a tiny amount each use. This is a MUST MUST have for me.

Have any of you tried it? what did you think? x
