😍😋 Quick, easy and tasty breakfast ftw! Got this idea from @deliciouslyella , it’s the DE Nutty Granola, with @coyo_uk Coconut Yoghurt and Berries sweetened with a little date syrup 😊 (tech ignored the no sugar rule with this one but I’m ok with that, plus it’s only stuff like maple syrup anyway) #sogood#sundaybrekkie
Brighton on a sunny but freezing day 👌🏽 This pic was clearly not taken today🌪🌨❄️ Had a little house renovation meeting this morning (feeling slightly behind as the build start date was brought forward by weeks and they start next week 😬 so loads of decisions and not enough time!) and then caught up with my girls for little Ruby’s Naming Day 💖👶🏼 #loveweekends#brightonbeach
Are you missing the sun? ☀️ We may not be seeing much of the sun at the moment but the sunsets are still pretty!! West Pier looking all moody and the dance of the starlings looks almost hipnotic 🐦 🌅 Epic capture 📸 By: @calhibbard #westpier
🏡 RENOVATIONS ✨ Starting the renovations so soon and I’m a mixture of excited and nervous! Can’t wait for our home to be our style and work better for us but so anxious about having no kitchen (or dishwasher 🙀) for weeks/months! It’s def time for this pinky brown carpet to go 🤔😬 We’ve also finalised more kitchen decisions, researched more flooring options (probably going to go with engineered wood in the kitchen and lounge and cork (😱 something a bit different 🤔) in the utility room. Last pic is from Small Batch in Hove, love getting design ideas from coffee shops ☕️ #homerenovations
I've had alot of time to think and things to think about recently. Self appearance is one of them, here's some ramblings that came out of my mind and a photo I took today.
Comments are made almost everyday about how we look. The clothes we wear, the way our hair is styled, the amount of excess (or lack of) weight we carry or the complexion of our skin.
I get it myself, people feel the need to mention how I choose to look. First it was the fact I grew a beard. My word, a man growing a beard, there's a first.
Then it was the excess weight I started to loose, even though I was in fact making myself healthier. Right now it's my hair.
I get branded a 'Hipster' pretty much everytime my appearance is mentioned. In a society where we seem to be urged to 'Be Yourself'; why is that same society then categorising me based on my appearance?
I in no way alter my appearance, be it the clothes I wear or my hairstyle or anything else, to 'fit in'. I do it because it makes me feel better on the inside. It makes me comfortable and because sometimes I look at myself & I don't like what I see, So I change it. I have no desire nor requirement to justify the choices I make that regard solely me.
There are people who struggle on a daily basis from serious forms of mental illness that affect themselves physically. Body dismorphia, anorexia, bollimia to name a few of the conditions that coerce an individual to unhealthily change the way they look.
I guess what I'm trying to say is even the smallest, slightly detrimental comment on someone's appearance can have an unfathomable response within their mind.
You can be damn sure that they're changing something because they want to or feel the need they have to, to be accepted.
Welcome difference, welcome individuality & let people display themselves in a way that promotes confidence & acceptance among us all.
