— ТЕКСТ ПО-РУССКИ В КОММЕНТАХ—It was a funny(now it’s funny, back at that day it was sad and frustrating !) moment in my showday, when I thought literally to get my sh”t together , and going back to the nearby hotel, without even competing and stepping on stage :
At the day of the registration, I got a spontaneous decision to hire a real professional to do my make up. She was sitting there,at the same spot where I signed for competition, paid my fees and took a number for competing. I payed to the girl, she wrote me a recite ,and we sat the hour of my makeup. The next day I arrived at the place of the competition, did my last layer of tan ,and start looking for a make up girl . She wasn’t there... I circled at the building, looking at every corner and wondering maybe I got her wrong at some point .... after 20 min of going back and forward , trying to find her , I realized there is no make up artist for me for today ,and I need to manage to pull the look by myself ,— here, in-front of the toilet mirror with a shitty lightings. It was a huge luck I did bring the all heavy ammo of my make up bag with me ,just in case.after about 10 min of me trying to do it at the best way possible considering I can barely see what I’m doing ,I realized my number is been calling out and I need to be ready like 5 min ago!
I glued my lashes at the worst way possible, crooked and ugly, I had no time for my hair make them look as I wanted — I just rushed to a backstage to put my bikini on and be ready for my category ... I was a mess, feeling like everything is not as it should be, and the bloody unglued fake lashes was about to snap up and fall out at any sec, not to mention my plain peasant hair, or , to be correctly,the lack of any style at it ... when I finished my show I did saw the make up girl, at the distant , in the crowd,but just wanted to drink water and to get rid of my heels , so I said “ ohh, I hope she need these 70 euros much more then I did” and started to pack my bags, without even trying to approach her
feeling proud 😁💗.
What are my goals? Currently right now you could say I have no goals. BUT it is probably to still train hard and eat a balanced diet so I feel and look ok for all the Christmas parties 🙈🤶🏻🎅🏼.
Do I miss the shreds? Errrrm, not really! Should I??? Every individual suffers from post show effects differently. After my first competitive season I suffered really badly with post show blues and binge eating causing me to rebound quickly. This year have controlled this and it has mentally helped massively! 🙂 Bodybuilding is an extreme look that is necessary for competition season, but it is unhealthy to be stage condition for a long period of time, especially for females. 👎🏻.
Am I happy with the way I look post show? Yes! There are times when I think damn I could be leaner, but who doesn’t feel like that at times? We restricted ourselves for so long there will be times when you over indulge or binge on goodies. 🙈🍟🥞🥗🍰🍫🍬.
Some people post show move straight onto new goals but I’m currently enjoying living life at the moment! 😁 Flexible dieting, clean food but with a few treats here and there. Training split of legs / shoulders & calves / arms & abs / back hams & glutes / shoulders & arms, with an average of 30mins cardio a day, some days I do no cardio but other days I do 60mins to average it out. 🙌🏻💪🏻.
I love going out and spending time with friends and family, but with all this going on I forget about what I actually achieved this year! 🙈.
I am looking forward to setting new goals in 2019 but right now I am happy just plodding along and enjoying the festivities 😁. ▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫◽◽◽◽◽◽

Currently getting a load of questions on the DM at the moment about posing shoes, so here’s another mini breakdown to help anyone out there who is trying to make the almost impossible decision. First up...the Advanced Heel Slayer 💁🏻♀️ Most suitable for those who are used to wearing whatever style heel they like either on the daily grind at work or at the weekends. If this sounds like you then realistically the world is your oyster when it comes to posing shoe styles etc.
Going without straps? Look for product names with the codes: 301,401,501
301: no strap with a 3 inch heel
401: no strap with a 4 inch heel
501: no strap with a 5 inch heel
Extra things to take mental note of 📝
Typical heel slayers usually wear 5-inch heels with no problems due to their past experience.
If you don’t have much experience in wearing heels, 5-inch heels might be worth investing in once you’re comfortable in 3 or 4-inch heel on stage.
5-inch heels are most popular with petite competitors.
Over 5ft 7? Competing in a ‘bodybuilding’ type federation? Stay away from 5-inch heels, unless you have a lot of good quality muscle tissue on you, your physique might appear stringy to the other ‘fuller and denser’ girls on stage in your class.
While 5-inch heels are great for elongating the leg they can make your calves appear ‘flatter’ (again this primarily depends on the height of the competitor and how much muscle they hold in that area).
Choose a posing shoe that you think you are going to feel the most comfortable in
Being comfortable and confident on stage is more important than the style of shoe
Choose a shoe that matches the style and requirements of the federation
Most federations these days are fairly relaxed in regards to the platform, as long as it’s not ‘stripper’ style if you get my drift you won’t have any problems... P.S do NOT panic if you’ve ordered shoes and you’re unsure whether you’ll be able to pull them off, because with enough practice you can rock whatever heels you decide to purchase, it just might take you a little longer than originally planned 🖤
Keep an eye out for more posing shoe advice. And if you have any requests on the next topic just hollaaa
