Hello my honeys,
You’re probably thinking from this title that I am being arrogant or conceited, or that I love myself. In fact I am just empowering myself in an attempt to empower every single one of you at the same time. As a brand ambassador of Look Fantastic I was incredibly lucky to work on this powerful campaign alongside the most FANTASTIC people.
During filming we were given some statistics that not only horrified me but also deeply saddened me. When customers of Look Fantastic were asked how they feel about their physical appearance only 1% said they feel totally confident. WHAT?! To me that ludcaris because in my eyes we are all individually beautiful in our own way, but it seems as though now society applies certain pressures from social media and the public eye that leads us to believe we are not ‘good enough’ or just simply ‘not enough’.
Its natural that we focus on our negative attributes and imperfections rather than cherish what makes us beautiful. I tell myself everyday 3 things I love about myself to allow myself to reflect upon what MAKES ME FANTASTIC. Today my three things are: I love my heart, my loyalty and my ability to laugh even when I feel as though I want to cry. People seemed shocked when I tell them I do this and its because it seems abnormal to praise and raise yourself. Why shouldn’t you though? You are the one and only person who can define your own happiness so why put yourself down. There are a million people who will tell you that you are not good enough, don’t allow yourself to be one of them.
I feel so lucky to have worked on a campaign so close to my heart and if anything good can come from my blog, my Instagram, my youtube and any form of social media its to spread love, happiness and positivity. Life is far too short to determine your happiness by other peoples opinion. Love yourself before you allow anyone else to love you. There is a quote that I adore and it is: life is like a camera, focus on what’s important, capture the good times, develop from the negatives and if things don’t work out just take another shot.

Remember my angels, YOU ARE FANTASTIC. Never, ever forget it. I love you.
