Body Confidence Issues & Primark Pleats

check out a blog post on body confidence & primark styling

Just like any girl I have those days where I’m seriously annoyed with my weight, chubby arms and overall look, and there’s absolutely no shame in admitting it. FYI, I say this whilst currently sat binge watchin’ Pretty Little Liars whilst I smash tortilla chips in my face. Did I mention that although i have body confidence issues, I still like to eat like a pig? Hopefully I’m not alone on that one….

    

Anyway, all bloggers as we know portray this glamorous life of white themes, flat-lays and great bodies through the use of amazing angles and photo techniques. And sometimes I (attempt) to  join in on those things too. Trying to create this idea of living in a world of the greater self, making ourselves perfect and being all-round bloody smashing. Well, what I’ve come to realise is, that no-one’s perfect. And although I’m not comfortable with my chubster weight gain over the past year, I’ve finally realised that I’m securing more into myself as I get older. Not to say that I aint going to try and eat healthily and ignore the treadmill full stop, but I won’t be takin’ the social world too seriously. Because as cheesy as it sounds, the road to happiness isn’t defined by your belly rolls. 

Repeating to myself daily- I am not a model, I am not a top blogger , i’m too awkward to pose in photo’s and i’ll never fit the body ideals, so go get the biscuit and live your damn life. After all that biscuit tastes a thousand times better than a shallow person.

    Great post! I think we are all our own's harshest critic and should be kinder to ourselves.
    I always look to Dr. Seuss for this one – "Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you."
