Loving you is easy cos your beautiful

I want you to really digest what I’m about to say.

We all have had those days when we really can’t stand to look at ourselves in the mirror, we don’t feel pretty in the slightest.

Do you know what?

We are human and having a down day is very normal.

But I want you to really think about the person that you are inside and out.

  • I want you to love all that you are, flaws and all. There’s not another you out there.
  • Take compliments on board, I know when I give someone a compliment I truly mean it and don’t just go round saying it for fun.
  • Have daily mantras that you can either say out loud or to yourself (for example yes I can) click here for a list of ones you can use
  • Give yourself a pep talk on the bad days and remind yourself you are good enough and you are worth it.
  • When you ooze self confidence you will feel a sense of happiness in life and your wellbeing will totally alter. Going from self conscious to self confidence will take time but you will feel the benefits of it.

Don’t ever doubt your worth, and don’t let anybody tell you you are anything less than fabulous.

In Minnie Ripertons words as I have titled this blog post- loving you is easy cos you’re beautiful.

What makes you feel confident and sexy?

In your bedroom whether it’s just you or you have the company of someone else too, don’t you like to feel confident and sexy yet comfortable at the same time?

I know i do.

Well i was approached by a lovely lady from UK LINGERIE and she asked if i would like to pick out a few bits from their website.

Being a bit curvy i wanted something that would compliment me but look sensual and pretty at the same time.

You would never know i have a huge surgery scar because the knickers are concealing it so well. The bra is so comfortable and gives enough cleavage without being too over the top, but to be fair i don’t have much always.

I am due to have a urostomy bag in the upcoming months and i no doubt will still feel amazing in these shorts plus supporting a bag too. This is the lepel fiore black and gold padded bra and the lepel fiore black and gold shorts

I also thought i don’t have any nice pyjamas that could double up as loungewear, so that’s what i went in search of and then i found these beauties.

These are the Dreamgirl off the shoulder pj set

They are the softest pair of pyjamas I’ve ever come across.

I have pulled the top up a bit so you could see the waistband on the bottoms. I’m a complete sucker for pink as you know but the bit of lace detailing just makes them even more lovely.

The off the shoulder look gives a bit of a sensual look about them.

I got these in a size 12 and they fit like a glove. My bra was also in my normal bra size so they really are true to my size.

I will definitely be purchasing fromUK LINGERIE in the future and a few of my friends have said they will too which is great.

I hope you enjoyed reading and I’ll see you in my next post.

You should go and love yourself

I haven’t always been one of those people that say love yourself and all your imperfections. Truth is i used to hate mine and i couldn’t stand looking in the mirror, having my photograph taken, i really didn’t love myself at all.

These days though i really do appreciate my body and my outer appearance for what it is.

I bought this back along from Avon i think. I liked it said i love you 3 times around the ring. Reminded me of the lyrics from Natasha Bedingfields song – These words

I didn’t need someone else to buy it for me. It’s for self love that i now have for myself.

I couldn’t praise enough about loving who you are as it’s so horrible feeling like you are not pretty enough or not worth it.

YOU ARE

So this happened today

I have been growing my hair for the last 2 years and got it the longest its been since i was about 12.

I had a throwback photo come up on my facebook memories a couple weeks ago and it was me with super short hair. I saved the pic to my phone and went back to it a few times to admire it. It really did used to suit me. Could i pull it off again?

My hair today went from this length…

Then put in pigtails and snipped off.

A whole ten inches. I have decided to donate it to the little princess trust to help them to make a wig for children with cancer. It’s such a worthy cause.

Here’s my new hair do courtesy of my sister – who also happens to be a hairdresser.

It’s one thing i can add to my random act of kindness list 💕

What’s a random act of kindness you’ve done?

LISTEN UP #2 – WEEKLY INSTALMENT

Last week I published my very first podcast – which was an introduction to what my little series would include, along with a few little light hearted stories for good measure.

I enjoyed it very much because I can just chat into my iPad freely and then add some music at the start and the end and then submit it on a Wednesday – which is today.

I just picked the middle of the week because that’s generally when people need a bit of a pick me up.

So this week I focused on self love and looking at other then pampering what could help. I think I came up with a good ten tips.

I have been verified on iTunes now so if you have apple here is the link

10 SELF LOVE TIPS ON ITUNES PODCAST

If you don’t here’s a clickable podcast on soundcloud – pretty sure if you press the play button on it then it will just play on here.

I will update you next week once I’ve uploaded it. Please feel free to mention some things you wouldn’t mind listening to on there I’m a very open person.

Body Beautiful

You know the moment you can stand infront of the mirror and stare at your reflection and think hmm it’s not a bad looking body after all. That’s when you know that body confidence is starting to grow from inside you.

I’ve found some inspiration on good old Pinterest with some quotes that will help you recognise the true body beautiful that is yours and then use them to motivate that self love in you.

I can hold my hands up now and say after years of not loving my imperfect body you my darling body you’re bloody awesome. Operation scars, cellulite, stretch marks and the odd spots.

I give you this mission to find the body beautiful within you too.

Hello July

Hello and welcome to July.

As I’m writing this its the 1st day of the month.

Its been a boiling hot day yet again, so i haven’t been able to sit in the cool and write until now which is 9pm to be precise.

I am one of those people that are all about starting the month on a good note.

I’m taking a week off Facebook so i can concentrate on me and my wellbeing and not worry about what others are doing/moaning about.

I am not going to let myself be walked over like a mug. I deserve better, so the guy who I’ve been swooning over has had far too many ‘I’ll let you offs’. I need someone who worships the ground i walk on…more like wheel myself on ha ha.

This month is all about self love and self care for me. I don’t want added stress. I need to focus on making me a priority for once.

Do this for yourself too. Know your worth and add tax as they say – who ever they is.

Heres to a lovely July for us all
