Fashion, beauty, lifestyle and motherhood

Monday, 8 April 2019


I am writing this not just for you my readers, but also a message for myself. I remember as I approached my early 20's I wanted to gain some weight. I thought I was way too skinny and the bum was too small.. haha.(I must say I had nice wide hips though). Back then I would eat pure junk. Chocolate, burgers, crisp, you name it.
But the thing I've learnt overtime was that the body I was complaining about, loads of other women would love to look that way.
Even girls with the most perfect physiques will still have some sort of harsh self-criticism about their body. I've come to realise that it is not until we accept ourselves, that true change can start to happen.

We are constantly affronted with photo-shopped images of actresses and models with "the perfect body". In the process designed to make us "Buy Products". We are incorrectly taught to believe that we need to look a certain way in order to be THE GORGEOUS GIRL. 

"A woman is much more than just her body."

Embrace your beautiful uniqueness:
To all women thick, skinny or in-between, love your body as you are. Please don't get me wrong, I totally believe in having body goals, going to the gym, eating healthy and all that. I believe being healthy is a lifestyle not just a couple months of dieting or starving ones self to get a flat tummy. I too have body goals, but I try not to look in the mirror(as I use to) minutes at a time to "check my flaws". Of course I want a smaller waist, who doesn't. But why stress over it when we have a  million and one other things to worry about.
Stop worrying about if you measure up to "society's" impossible standards of female beauty, because guess what? Nobody does!!

I am good enough just as I am, and SO ARE YOU!!
Make healthy lifestyle choices that nurture not just your body, but the mind and spirit as well. Cause that's what makes you beautiful.

I still wobble in places when I jump or try running haha. If I feel like my favourite mom jeans are getting a bit too close, I cut back on the chocolate, but I don't stress it, if you get what I mean. No need to search for imperfections, when we are already perfect. From a flat bum, to a flat chest, skinny legs or big thighs we are all uniquely beautiful. Lumps, bumps, rolls and all!!.. Live for you and not someone else's standards. The most important opinion is yours.

Now lets talk Fashion, this jumpsuit from Missy Empire. Every women should have one of this in their collection this spring. It fits perfect. Hugs the curves in all the right places. So sophisticated, but yet still showing a little skin. It can be worn as a casual work outfit with a vest, or a Friday evening out with the girls with some nice heels on. Jumpsuits may come across sometimes as a "all-in-one", but Missy Empire knew what they were doing when they added this belt. All-in-one .. where?? .. Girl got a waist haha.. Unfortunately I haven't got a affiliated link for this particular jumpsuit. But please do have a look on a few I'm loving below. 
I'm definitely all about jumpsuits for spring. Oh and experimenting with some colours for sure. Had to send back a couple coloured pieces last week, but at least I tried. 

Shout out to all the ladies out there loving themselves in a world that's constantly telling them not to. I have always emphasize on this, and always will. accepting and loving ourselves all comes down to being confident. Confidence will make you happier than any diet will. At least, that's where its starts.

Thanks for stopping by darlings,
Sending loads of love your way …
