Catch me on a good day and I have a thick girl attitude of not caring what anyone else’s perspective of my body is. Catch me on a bad day and I would be too self conscious to upload a photo like this because what I see on that bad day isn’t perfect in my eyes and it can really make you question if women, men, friends and the rest of society will re evaluate my worth because of that photo, because maybe they won’t find it attractive. Society’s beauty standards are so deeply engrained into our brains we feel that our beauty equals our worth and the need to compare ourself to others is automatic. Hopefully one day we will have retrained our brains to see bodies of all colours, shapes and sizes as beautiful.

Every fault you can find in this photo of my body is real. Your interpretation of this photo and my body are a reflection of how you see the world and the beauty in it, it’s not a reflection of me. . . . . . . . . . .

BOOBS! A feature of myself I can be self conscious about because other people try to make me feel as if I should be, that my friends is body shaming. I receive a lot of comments whether it be on social media or real life about my boobs. I was born with them, what do you want me to do? Change my appearance because you don’t like how big my boobs are or how much cleavage I’m showing? You think it’s inappropriate? Well I’ve learnt over the years the human body is a beautiful thing and I’ve embraced my body so don’t try and tear a woman’s self confidence down because the way YOU perceive her body isn’t ideal. I think this is such an important subject because how many of us have felt self conscious because we are made to feel our boobs are to big or too small, that our outfit is inappropriate and god forbid we’re not wearing a bra and you can see our nipples. Let’s all get a lot more comfortable with the human body and stop making these judgements and standards for boobs because I refuse to feel ashamed of the body I was given. . . . . . . . . . .

It can be so time consuming and frustrating trying to create the perfect wings but after using all 3 sizes from The Quick Flick I’m so much more confident knowing all I have to do is stamp it on. I’m in love. @thequickflick #thequickflick . . . . . . . . . . #bodypositive #instagood #instadaily #instagood #photo #photooftheday #lifestyle #lifestyleblogger #photoshoot #selflove #love #model #modelling #lifestylemodel #product
X Instagram Vs Reality (No editing) X Now let’s talk a little about photo editing. Once upon a time I was completely against editing of any kind, but now I’ve settled and realised sometimes a photo really doesn’t capture a moment in time or feeling. Maybe the water doesn’t look as blue as it does in real life, or the photo doesn’t do justice to just how cute you feel or capture that happy sparkle in your eye, so I’ll be the first to admit I love a good brightening, contrast or sharpening tool. What I’m not down for is completely airbrushed photos. I try really hard not to filter my photos, and only edit them if I feel like they lack the vibrancy of the moment I’ve tried to capture and for a more professional feel. Editing a photo to change your features so you have a slimmer face, bigger eyes, smaller waist, bigger booty and blemish free skin just makes me sad that society’s standard of beauty has been pushed so much that we feel like we’re not good enough as we are. I know I definitely feel that way sometimes. Your airbrushed photo is telling the world you’re not happy to accept who you are, it’s a toxic cycle. I’m not saying only raw images are acceptable, but maybe challange yourself to edit your photos a little less and love and accept yourself a little more each day. Self love is definitely a journey, but every little baby step helps. I love both these images, the edited and raw because I look like me 💘 . . . . . . . . . . #bodypositive #instagood #instadaily #instagood #photo #photooftheday #lifestyle #lifestyleblogger #photoshoot #selflove #love #model #modelling #lifestylemodel #product
