I’m No Insta-Girl & That’s Ok

Sometimes you just have to accept who you are. It’s not about wanting to look like the perfect girl on Instagram. You always see these type of accounts where the girl/women is slim, long gorgeous hair, the perfect clothes in the most stunning locations. Na huns, it’s not always like that. That doesn’t mean that she has the perfect life. You want to be her? What’s wrong with your life and what you’re gifted with?
I’ve finally come to terms with my weight. After all them years I worried, and use to go on and on at myself how I’m fat and gross – I’ve now realised what’s the point in rambling on about that when it’s nothing compared to other peoples worries in life. I mean, how many of us use to go on how fat we were but really now we look back and think ‘wtf was I thinking?’. We’re all guilty. 

I am no size 8, and I don’t live in a world of elegance. I’m from a gorgeous area down the South Coast, I’m a size 12 or even a 14 sometimes, my everyday life is pretty boring sometimes, I work in a office with lorry men coming in and out, and my life routine is pretty much the same everyday. I don’t go on any fancy holidays, even this year – I’m not going on one! However, that doesn’t make my life any less boring than then that Insta-Girl.

There are so many things that I think and say to myself when standing in the mirror. There’s so many things I can pick out and then trash talk myself. ‘Your so fat’ – ‘You need to loose weight girl’. 

I mean, I can hands down say I’ve said over a million times when going out – ‘I have nothing to wear’. There’s nothing worse than going to an event or a even a casual night out with friends, and not having anything to wear. Especially when you are gifted with such gorgeous, slim friends – you know you’ve got no luck!

However, for all them times I’ve sat there and said that. I’ve now come to terms to start dressing for me. A few years ago, when I was around a size 10 I was dressing myself in over sized clothes to cover up. C O V E R U P WHAT?! I don’t know either. Even though I felt good covering myself up, it never made me feel really good about myself when looking in the mirror.
Fuck all the dressing up to cover up and to be unhappy in what I’m wearing. I’ve finally decided to start wearing what I want whether it does my hips any good, or my whole figure. If it makes me feel good then that’s all I care about. My hips are a part of me and if that means showing them off more than I should, then so be it. If I feel comfortable and feel good in myself then that’s all I’m caring about.

I’m going to start dressing for me. I’m going to start wearing what I bloody want. I don’t care what other people will think of me. If I like it then I’ll wear it. I’m not going to look like the girl on Instagram when she wears the same sort of outfit, but that’s ok. I’m me, and that’s where it’ll always stay and I’m happy with that.

      Totally, only think about you as long as your not hurting anyone! <3

    You are gorgeous inside and out! I think being perfect is just rubbish! I agree with you as well, life is to short and precious to spend it dwelling over something like the way we look!

      Oh thank you so much Stacey, that's so so lovely of you. Total babe you are, and a total inspiration! <3

    This is such a great post and so so true. I mean girl, you're gorgeous just the way you are! Who cares what anyone else thinks as long as you're happy. Life is short, eat the cake and buy the lipstick! I'm also loving those trousers so much I think I might need them in my life.

      Totally agree with you here, do what you want. If someone wants to tell you, your doing wrong then just wave *Bye-bye*. Thank you, these are from New Look, but they were in the sale! <3

    Absolutely love this post and can relate as I'm a size 12/14 and after years of tall and slim and a size10, I struggle to be happy in my own skin sometimes. But if you can do it, then I'm getting my big behind in some tight jeans and I'm showing off my curves and lumps and bumps 😂 Not all at the same time mind. You are gorgeous btw and I love your outfit! 💖 Xx

      Oh yes!!! Totally!! We all have different opinions on our bodies, compared to what others want to tell us. We should focus on what people do tell us, because that's what we need to show off. I've always hated having a big bum but my friends tell me I should love it! Now at this age, I totally respect my Momma giving me a big booty! So yes, show off your curves because some people would die to have them! <3

    Yes girl! Love this attitude! Embrace ypur body and love it! Women were made with curves and lumps and bumps and that's totally okay! Never compare yourself to others because as you rightly said, you don't know what their real life is like. Robyn x

    I love this so much, you have such an amazing outlook on it! There really isn't a perfect way to live, I think that it can be portrayed, but it's not really a thing. We all go through things and feel differently.You look stunning in the picture, the outfit looks great and really suits you! Great post xx

      Firstly, thank you.
      Secondly, I totally agree. We all lead different lives, and sometimes life can be difficult and that means sticking your hand back into the biscuit tin after the previous 5 times you told yourself *not again*. You can't always compare yourself to the girl that has a total different body shape to you, and different body features to you that you don't necessarily have! We all have our negatives about ourselves and the outlook to life, but as long as you're still living a happy life – what's it matter what other people are doing! Thank you so so much of reading, and thank you for your comment <3
