And finally (but most importantly), I have over the past few months, been slowly transforming my ideas about body image and self-confidence. I've had curves for as long as I remember, and - particularly as a teenage girl - body confidence has been something I have regularly battled with. No surprise. There is a wealth of negative messages about body image in our current media. And, you know, I'm totally over it. It's time for an alternative ideology. Yep. I've been checking out those pretty models on ASOS Curve. I've been reading these great blogs! No more apologizing for our [insert body part here] that is 'less than perfect'. We are, all parts included, beautiful. Slim, curvy, anything in between.
Here's to: modelling positive body image to our children; feeling confident and sexy in our own skin; reminding our friends that they are gorgeous NOW, not when they put on/lose weight; and changing the concept of 'socially accepted beauty.' I am working on developing healthier eating habits, and integrating exercise into my life, because that feels good. I am working just as hard to feel great in my skin, at all times. Are ya with me?
p.s. I wore this outfit to see The Eastern play at a local cafe last night - they were SO FAB!!! I'm quite in love! If you haven't seen them live before, they are touring at the moment so check out their tour dates for a gig near you. It is not possible that you will regret it.
