Let's Talk Body Issues

Since joining Instagram about two years ago I can't help but notice how much girls bash each other over the way they look.  If someone has boobs and a bum, they're fat?  If someone has a flat stomach, they're too skinny?  It's terrible how judgmental society has become and even worse is the fact that they think it's okay to make these nasty comments.  

I'm not saying everyone is like this, in fact, most people aren't.  I know someone who posts a bikini photo is asking to be looked at and scrutinised but you need to learn when to keep your thoughts to yourself.  Do you not stop and think how this might affect the person posting it?  That they are human beings with feelings?

I was always really skinny as a kid and am still quite naturally thin now but I hated it when people called me skinny.  The word skinny can be just as hurtful as calling someone fat. We need to learn to accept everyone as they are and realise that beauty comes from within.  I know this is all really cliche but I feel it's something that needs to be repeated.

Maybe these people are insecure themselves and that's why they hate?  Either way it's wrong and if they tried to accept and love themselves as they are then maybe they could do the same to others?  We should be supporting each other and lift each other up.  That's what will give people a confidence boost and isn't it nice to make someone feel good about themselves?

At the end of the day it's okay if you don't look like a Victoria's Secret model and if you want a slice of pizza every now and again, you go for it!  Don't be hard on yourself and definitely don't let other people make you feel bad.

What are your opinions on this, do you feel the same way?

My Favourite Looks From Fashion Week

Last month was 'Fashion Month' with showcases and catwalks taking place each week in different locations across London, New York, Paris and Milan.  Although I have been attending London Fashion Week for several years now, this time around I was in California and unfortunately could not attend any shows. However, that did not stop me from catching up once I was back from my trip to check out all the latest trends.  I was also browsing the   Esprit website   and noticed they had some awesome pieces just like the trends seen on the runway last month. Here are some of my favourites that I think are going to be hot this season and where you can copy the looks for less! Floral prints at Gucci.  You can shop the look for less here . All black at Marc Jacobs.  Shop the look for less here . Bows at Chloe.  Shop the look for less here . Sparkles at Alexander McQueen.  Shop the look for less here . Not only does   Esprit   do runway trends for

New Year, New You

As with every New Year, we make resolutions (you can see mine in my last post) but I think for most of us it's about becoming a newer and better person than we were last year.  I've come up with a few ways we can make little changes to become a newer and better you. New Hair I've said in many of my posts how much I like to change my hair and you can read about my hair dying experience here and my hair extensions experience here .  However, it needn't be a drastic change, just a little trim and some subtle highlights .  Whenever I change my hair I always feel like a new woman! New Wardrobe The New Year is probably the best time to invest in some new clothes because there are so many sales on.  You don't even have to spend a lot of money, I love affordable brands such as Esprit which do really on trend pieces at high street prices.  With a new wardrobe you will not only feel better but look better too! New Hobby The New Year is a gre

How to Wear a Pink Lip

Wearing a pink lip can sometimes be quite hard, especially if it's a rather bright and vibrant shade but I think it looks so lovely for this time of the year. My favourite shade of pink is Impassioned by MAC .  It's very bright and has such a creamy texture that it glides on really well and stays put for quite a few hours.  I find I never have to wear a lip liner with this one either. When wearing a pink lip I think it's important to get the rest of your make up right so that you don't look washed up and colours don't clash. So starting off with the skin I would get myself nice and tanned.  My favourite tanners at the moment are the Superdrug Solait tan in dark and also Tan Truth which you can get from Sally's Salon Services.  Where I have just come back from Ibiza I have still got a bit of a tan so every few days I use the St Tropez Everyday gradual tanner and this helps top up my tan slightly. Then you've got to get the make-up right so
