If you have watched my Confidence Pep Talk then you’ll know that I am a big advocate of not giving a f*ck about what people think of you, sildenafil but I also understand it is easier said than done. Being constantly surrounded by other peoples beauty ideals can be draining if you continue to chase them so I want you to give it a break for a minute and read this.

At some point in everyones lives, physician you’re not going to be completely happy with what you see in the mirror on a day to day basis and I my self had some of these days growing up but not so much today. Growing up I was slightly (and still am) awkward and nerdy and twig like and loved sports. I wasn’t an introvert but my confidence did take a knock when I first joined secondary school. I remember how people used to constantly try to bring me down and amplify my insecurities with their words; “you’re anorexic” “your body is ugly” among other hurtful things and I didn’t understand why they felt the need to say these things to me; I know realise that they were just projecting their own self- esteem issues and unhappiness within themselves on to me. 

 Even when I first got signed to Premier, I didn’t tell anyone for months as I was so scared of the backlash and hurtful words that may ensue and that people would tell me I wasn’t good enough to be a model, I was so nervous about people finding out that I didn’t tell anyone for nearly six months or more. What followed after my best friend went and shouted it in class was actually shocking and confusing to me at the time- people now liked me and wanted to congratulate and compliment me. It was as if me becoming a model validated my existence to the bullies who picked on me and thats when I really took on board my life mantra of not giving a fuck about what people say about me.

These same people who had picked on me from the second week of year 7 up until I was 14 changed their tune at the drop of a feather, it was actually crazy but I realised that although I never let it get me down for too long, I had spent many nights wishing that my body would change so that I could look like everyone else and be accepted when really I should’ve accepted myself. 

Now I can proudly say that I love my body and that even though I’m surrounded by beautiful, women everyday, its not their exterior features that I look up to. I couldn’t even visualise myself being happy with my body when I was younger let alone in my underwear because of the words that people used to hurl at me; those words are not how I view myself and you shouldn’t let peoples negative energies and views on you get to you either. I have accepted that this is who I am and what I look like, no two people are the same and instead of chasing this illusive image of perfection, I celebrate my individuality and uniqueness- as should you!

Whether you're having a good or bad hair day, viagra a beanie hat is the perfect way to complete any outfit for A/W. I love a statement beanie in either a mohair or cashmere to add texture to my look and styled mine with my Gosha Rubchinskiy tracksuit and Moschino teddy bear coin course.
