Real beauty

Make up less beauty. Due to recent exams which have been driving me absolutely up the wall I've really not had the time to put on make up, which I hate because now especially in the stress I look like a mix between Frankenstein and Lidnsay Lohan before rehab.... Anyway, even though I thought I looked absolutely awful a lot of poeple came up to me and asked if I had changed something, I looked so good. Thats around when I started thinking, are we maybe constantly trying to hard? Todays industry has us critizing absolutely everything. Hair, face, nose, legs and even things we forgot we had! Such as fingers, toes, knees, arm hair etc. Its when I began to wonder is beauty perfection? Or is impefection beauty? A guy said to me, " I love it when girls have great style and know how to dress, but when she can pull of sweats and a ponytailshe's got my heart". And no this is not the kind of guy who always answer stuff for magazines, who are without job and ugly. He's cute and actually a player(the sweet kind). So now I began to wonder if a guy can love me in sweatpants why do we constantly pressure ourselves, especially now in summer, to look like a supermodel even when just walking the dog?

I have to admit while I am jealous of those Victoria secret models and wish I looked like them, the models I admire, are the ones who admit to their flaws. Plus size models, models with impefect skin, big ears or noses. Because as Marilyn Monroe said: "Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring." What can anyone ever say against that? SHe is still remebered as the sexiest woman ever and that without size 0. 

Personally I think photoshop should be banned because everyone has to stop pretending there are perfect people, because no one is perfect. And the ones who look like they are aren't on the inside because no one can look like that with a significant amount of pain and if you're willing to take on that pain you're insecure. Simple as that. Try it every once in a while. No makeup, no sexy outfit just you jeans and converse. Trust me I never thought I'd be the one to say this but sometimes looking normal can look stunning :)

Still loving fashion,


  1. Well written! I love this and I agree with you. No one needs a lot of make-up and surgery to look beautiful because everyone is different and we have to also love our flaws because we are human.


  2. Couldn't agree more.....lets have blogs about natural unadorned beauty in all its forms!.....It would help an awful lot of girls and women stop stressing over being "perfect", and just enjoying who they really are! PLUS you get to have at least an extra hour in bed!! xx

  3. I think I dress up so much for myself because it genuinely makes me feel better about the day. You raise some really interesting and inspiring points.

  4. This just made my day and my entire life a little brighter. Well said. You really should become a journalist or something. Keep going the way you are right now and you'll be just as inspirational to people as Marilyn. :)
