(The only summer guide you need!)
So it’s summer – one of the best times of the year! No school or college/uni and amazing weather (sometimes 😉 )
But summer can also suck and that is because body image issues becomes an even bigger problem.
I know I have touched on this before (check out my insta 😉 ) but I blog when I have something I want to say and after listening to some amazing songs last night (look to the bottom) about loving yourself and not backing down to stereotypes about how you ‘should’ look I felt empowered and wanted to share that incredible feeling!
At this time of the year we are bombarded with images of the ‘perfect summer body’ and ways that we can get there. Juice this, take that, do this – the list goes on and on and on… IT’S RIDICULOUS!
You are already there my darlings -YOU ARE PERFECT!!
YOU – not the filtered, photoshopped you – not the you that you will be after you lose those last pounds – not the you after breast implants or botox.
The YOU that is staring back at you right now!!
Go on, I dare you – go to the nearest mirror and say “you are perfect” If you are in a public space all the better!! Spread this new summer message!
The world is constantly evolving – and that is great – we are providing well deserved love to so many more people – so why are we not giving ourselves the same courtesy?
So wear that bikini with pride – enjoy the sun on your face which only has sun cream on it – and admire your beautiful un-fake tanned skin. Enjoy being you this summer and dont even think of pressing that edit button:
Everyone will admire your confidence in your self-worth – the most attractive attribute anyone can own!
I am not sponsored – But love these songs and the messages that they promote which speak to us all in different ways- if you are looking for some self-confidence blare these – and enjoy this summer whether it be ☀️ or 🌧
(These songs are also relevent for guys too – I know that they mention women but body image issues affect us all – so let’s join together in beating them to the curb)
Love Myself – Hailee Steinfield
Pretty Girl – Maggie Lindemann (Cheat Codes X Cade Remix) – this one in particular is empowering and – in my view – promotes feminism and reminds women that they don’t have to conform to any expectations – physically or socially.
Scars to your Beauiful – Alessia Cara
Sexy Lady – Jessie J
