Body Positivity: 5 Things I Love About Myself


I've joined in with a couple of body positivity chats over on Twitter recently (@franbeautyblog) and they've been great. It saddens me that it doesn't seem to be OK to voice that you love yourself and I promise you it is absolutely OK to be happy with you are and what you've got. At the end of the day you're bloody stuck with it even if you don't like it.

These are the things that I love about myself:

1. My teeth and so I should be after having 6 teeth removed, some sort of jaw realigning thing (loved how unsexy this was, made me lisp and spit everywhere, it really helped bag the boys when I was 15) and then I endured train track braces for 5 years! I've also had them professionally whitened so I have lovely straight and bright white teeth now.

2. My eyes probably the feature that I get the most compliments on. I have big, striking eyes and even though I wear glasses, they still manage to stand out. I love the colour too- green/brown-ish (depends on the day) and I love applying eye shadow and mascara to make them look all glamorous and pretty!

3. My lips really lucky to have fuller lips because I don't need to go down the Kylie Jenner route and whack any filler in the ol' pout (definitely would though if needed). I can get away without wearing any lipstick too which can be good when in a rush.

4. My calves bit of a weird one but I have a love/hate relationship with my legs. I can't stand my thighs as they're so wobbly and covered in cellulite but I'm happy with my lower legs as they're a lot slimmer and more toned. Don't mind flashing a bit of the lower leg on the odd occasion (cheeeeky).

5. My boobs bit of a cheeky one but I'm pretty blessed in the breast department and I love how curvy they make my body look. Definitely not saying you have to have big boobs to look good but I'm a bigger girl and they make my body look in proportion.

We need more positivity in the world in relation to body image, I think there is so much negativity surrounding who's too fat, too thin, too tall, too short. What a load of media driven rubbish. As long as you are happy and healthy, who cares eh?!
