Things I love Thursday


(ootd- Crop top- New Look, Skirt- Top Shop, moonstone necklace- a spiritual fair a few years ago)

Hello wonderful people! Sorry for the lack of content this week! I am working on a blog post about something very important to me but I don’t feel quite ready to share it yet. Here goes:

❤ Wearing crop tops! I always used to feel I was too big to wear crop tops. I am a UK size 12-14, although more of a 14 lately, and I thought that crop tops only looked good on people smaller than I. But one day I came across this Tumblr- Fat babes in crop tops and I was instantly inspired. The site is run by a body positive woman who realised she could wear whatever the hell she wanted. My new summer uniform has become crop tops and high waisted skirts and I feel freaking fabulous!

❤ My lovely new uni bag

❤ Ordering books for uni

❤ Lovely long showers- one of my favourite ways to show myself radical self love

❤ Rupaul’s Drag Race

❤ Signing up for the Glitterati! I am so excited because not only do I get a lovely surprise box full of hair goodies I get an extra special one as it’s my birthday month. It’s my 20th birthday present to myself.

❤ Gala Darling featuring my 5 things I am grateful for today in her things I love Thursday! It’s such an honour because Gala is such a massive inspiration to me- I mean she’s the main reason I keep up my blog and make these gratitude posts.

❤ Getting super excited for my upcoming tattoos! I will share them both with you when they are done.

❤ The birthday excitement really kicking in as people keep telling me that they have found perfect presents for me.

❤ Cornwall Pride was, as always, fabulous! The day was lovely and sunny, surrounded by friends in Victoria Gardens. Then on to the evening where we watched our friend do an awesome Lady Gaga inspired drag act. His a cappella version of “Born this way” brought a tear to my eye. I had a wonderful day being proud!

  1. Sorry to bother you but I have seen your blog and it is a true inspiration to me. I wish that I had the confidence with which you grace yourself. May I say that you pull of the crop top very well but my fear would be that if I tried then my stretch marks would be too noticeable as I am unfortunate enough to look like a damn tiger…
    However, I am glad that I found your posts and couldn’t help but comment on this post, as I have found myself re-reading it on more than one occasion. I apologise for replying in such a long manner, the point of this was to say thank you…

    • Thank you so much! This really made me smile. It’s taken me a long time to get to the point where I am confident enough with my body to dress the way I do so I know it can be hard. If you want to try wearing crop tops maybe start wearing a longish one with a high waisted skirt to get comfortable in them? And I feel you on the stretch marks. Although you cannot see them here I have them all along the tops of my hips. I have chosen to see them as my body stretching so much with all my fabulousness that it couldn’t keep up! I hope my blog can continue to inspire you and I wish you the best of luck in your journey to loving your body. (sorry for my massive reply!) x
