I could look at these two pics I have of Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe and compare the shit out of how beautiful they are and how so many people including myself think they are the ultimate beauty icon, Which they are.
But instead I look at this pic and see the beauty in myself, maybe not perfect but I appreciate all that I am even when my skin is not flawless like theirs I can still be as beautiful as I want to feel.
I heard on the radio today is world naked gardening day but since I don’t do gardening I thought I’d chat about just being naked.
SLEEPING IN THE BUFF
For me personally until it’s baking hot in the summer I’m fully wrapped up in bed. If you have a significant other then their body heat keeps you warm so that’s another story. Then you have making love, whether you keep on a top or bare all.
WALKING ABOUT THE HOUSE NAKEE
Admittedly if the curtains and blinds are shut it’s the most freeing feeling and keeping in mind who’s about in your house and if they are comfortable with you in nothing but your birthday suit.
POSING FOR THE CAMERA IN THE NUDDY
If you are into modeling or if you want to have some photos just for you/your partner with your bare skin on show I don’t see what’s wrong as long as you keep them private as they could end up with the wrong eyes seeing them.
BEING STARKERS IN PUBLIC / NATURIST
Well obviously you just can’t walk down the road starkers as you would get arrested, but there’s naturist places where people can feel free in their bareness and then there are also nudist beaches to sun yourself with no white bits at all. It’s something I’m curious about but don’t think I’d ever have the balls in front of strangers.
So there you are a totally different subject to what I usually write about but you know me, don’t mind stepping out of my comfort zone.
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.
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 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.
