I have a @ctilburymakeup obsession and I'm not ashamed.
She always had that about her, that look of otherness, of eyes that see things much too far, and of thoughts that wander off the edge of the world. ~ Joanne Harris
Women are always made to feel like we have to apologize for our physicality, whether it’s for having hair on our bodies or fat on our legs. If an image of a female in her lingerie or bare-back naked is exposed to the world, she will instantly be associated with men’s sexual desires due to us being brainwashed from marketing and social conditioning. I am not going to apologise for posting a photo in my underwear because this is my body, I have learned to love it from a dark place of worthlessness and I can do what the bloody hell I want. The idea that women have a moral duty to wrap up in order to avoid inflaming male lusts is, in my opinion, utterly ridiculous. Furthermore, to oppose this, I believe, is not anti-feminist. My body is mine, and your eyes do not define it. #mybodymychoice #effyourbeautystandards
“And suddenly she found herself grateful. Grateful for all the darkness, the heartbreak and the betrayal because it allowed her to recognize true love when she found it. And she knew without a doubt, that all the broken, shattered forgotten pieces of her soul were worth putting back together again, because she became her beloved and found new light and love along the way.”
Good morning! My current breakfast love; Chocolate, peanut butter and banana oats. Tastes sinful but it's completely healthy, gluten free and no animals were harmed in the making of this. Full recipe is over on the blog.
Real happiness isn't something extravagant or large and looming on the horizon ahead. It's not the speed of the car you're driving or how fast the wind blows. It's much smaller, constant and already here. The smile of someone you love. A pot of blooming flowers on your windowsill. A steaming cup of coffee that smells like magic and fairy tales. The warm sunset displaying the most wonderful array of colours that you didn't even know existed. Your little everyday joys all lined up in a row.
