HAPPY SINGLE DIGIT DAY! 💃🏻We are just NINE more sleeps away from our happy place, and I can’t wait to be back - and this time with so many of my favorite people! 🌐🎨🎭 Feel free to follow along with us at @megan.mouse.club if you’d like to see some of our trip!
(wow I keep deleting this because I’m so scared about this post but) I want to get real about Instagram for a second here. I love this platform for so many reasons but lately I’ve been feeling a little anxious about it, as well as my content. My following has grown quite a lot lately which is amazing but as it has, I’ve put more of a pressure on myself to only post images which are perfect. I feel like I need to look flawless with perfect hair, perfect skin, a perfect background and outfit that matches my theme - otherwise people won’t like me, I won’t be “good enough”. I always need to be the pretty, photogenic Instagram girl, with the perfect feed and life and a never-ending stream of beautiful photos showcasing how perfect my life is; when this isn’t achievable. I know many of you probably feel the same; we have to live up to this false idea that us and our lives always have to be perfectly curated and beautiful when in reality, that’s not true. It’s unhealthy to believe that. So my goal for 2018 is to keep my instagram fun and colourful and cute but to not be afraid to be real and imperfect too. Take this photo from November for example; when my favourite character started to dance with me mid-picture, catching me off guard and making me smile in the way I’ve always hated on myself; teeth on show, cheeks and eyes bunched up. The realest smile. I never wanted to post this as I thought I looked ugly but honestly? I look happy and real and that’s just as beautiful as the perfectly lit, angled and posed photo I would’ve posted instead. I may not be flawless like I often feel I need to be to “liked” but I’m me and I’m real and hopefully that counts for something. I know this post has been long and ramble-y as heck but I hope what I’ve said has made sense, and resonated with some of you. Here’s to a less filtered, and a happier Instagram (no pun intended 😜) 💖
Had a fun date night tonight with my love and best friend at Disneyland After Dark tonight, the special after hours event! I saw so many awesome 50's and classic dresses!! I wanted to be warm and comfy so Tre and I Disneybound as Kiara (how appropriate right!?!) and Kovu from Lion King 2! 😊 Love that my hubby is awesome and will dress with me!! Such a fun flashback night!!! #Disneyafterdark#Disnerd#Disneybound#Kiara#lionking2#datenight
