Everybody has scars. 

Whether they're from an accident, acne or something else, everyone has them. And FYI, they're totally ok!

I have three notable scars. One is from pouring tea on myself (yes I can be that stupid), one is from a friction burn from go-karting (my most recent escapade) and one is from where my Mum accidentally head-butted me and burst my top lip. Hardcore, I know. 

Although mine are not from anything serious, they're still a mark on my body. And I sort of love them; they are a piece of my life, a little insight into what I've done. 

I know some people really hate their scars and I guess I'm lucky in that the one on my face is barely visible now because it was so long ago. 

I want people to embrace their scars; they're fascinating to me and they don't make you any less beautiful. If someone makes a comment about them that's derogatory then they can f**k off (no other word was as expressive, sorryy) because their opinion doesn't matter. If a girlfriend or boyfriend makes you feel down about them, tell them to stop or leave the relationship; if they're making you feel sad then you don't need them in your life. 

My message will forever be; love yourself

See you soon and stay insane!

Jumper - French Connection (stolen from my Mum, now mine)
Shoes - Topshop (£8 in sale)
Sunglasses - a theme park in the Netherlands
Long necklace - Mint Velvet
Short necklace - Spanish market

See you soon and stay insane!

A Little Pep Talk

Let's discuss you. Or maybe you don't want to, that is also fine my friends. But I'd like to make a few points that I've learnt over the past year.

1. 'People Care About People Who Care About Themselves' 

I do love a good Miss Congeniality 2 quote (don't we all) and although this is probably the vainest way of putting it, she has a point. If you don't look after yourself and love yourself, it is much much harder for anyone else to. Confidence isn't something you can buy; it's something you have to build within yourself with your own blood, sweat and tears - sorry to break it to you but it often gets worse before it gets better so be prepared for a few down-in-the-dumps feelings until you emerge a social butterfly. 

2. 'We don't have to take our clothes off to have a good time, ohhnoo' 

God I'm on fire with quotes today. It also shows my backlog of 80s dance knowledge. But as unrelated as Jermaine Stewart's lyrics might sound, I promise they aren't. I take these lyrics to mean that you shouldn't have to change yourself to make people like you. For example, you shouldn't have to smoke, take drugs or drink purely to fit in. If you want to do it, crack on although I wouldn't recommend it as your internet mother. But the point still stands that you need to be comfortable in yourself and what you're doing otherwise you'll be a smidge miserable. 

3. Listen to Destiny's Child, it makes you feel sassy

This one's not really serious but I'm currently listening to Destiny's Child - Lose My Breath and I honestly feel I could take on the world. I'm not saying you have to listen to Destiny's Child when you need a pick me up, but find some music that makes you want to dance like mad and feel instantly better. Music is food for the soul so feed your soul with so many different types; do NOT just stick to just one genre! 

I hope this was helpful in some way :)

See you soon and stay insane!

August Favourites

I'm going to start picking a selection of stuff I've loved every month and sharing them with you all. 

Jeans - Gap 1969 'Sexy Boyfriend'
These jeans are part of 5 new styles they brought in this Summer in a selection of stores. I got mine from York for £49.95 (I think; they don't have these ones on the website)and I've worn them so much with the Ralph Lauren belt pictured. Really comfy and go with everything. Bravo.

Book - 'How To Build A Girl' by Caitlin Moran
Blummin hilarious. Moran has a very dry sense of humour which I also have and find really funny. I'm three quarters of the way through and I'm loving it a lot.

Perfume - 'Ricci Ricci' by Nina Ricci (eau de parfum)
I'm not an avid perfume wearer but I like this one enough to talk about it. The website describes it as; a fresh, floral, sensual perfume created for the modern, urban heroine. Sounds like the perfect one for me as a modern, urban heroine *hair swish*.

Foundation - Max Factor Whipped Creme in 40
Ermageursch this foundation is everything I need; light texture, buildable coverage and makes my skin look fabbity fab. I couldn't ask for more for £9.99. 

Floppy hat - Forever 21
As hats are all the rage and I like them anyway, I bought this felt floppy hat for £7 and it's been great for all my bad hair days (which is errday).

Jewellery - no idea as it's my Mum's or from all over the world
As the weather has cooled slightly I've been getting back into jewellery; I get too hot and expandy for it in the heat. I wear quite simple outfits so it's nice to jazz them up a bit. 

What have you been luvin' this month?

See you soon and stay insane!
