Embracing The Pale: Week 1-3 / General Life Update

I’ve been meaning to write up this post for a long while! However, it’s been freshers fortnight at university and I feel like I’ve just been so busy and had no time to just sit and blog. As I said a few posts back, I’ve decided to hand in the St Moriz and tanning mitts. I was sick of feeling like I had to look like someone else, the population’s idea of beauty, not my own. All shades of skin are beautiful. It’s been hard not to go straight back to it, looking ill on nights out with groups of my uni girls and practically glowing was difficult at first (my best uni friend is so tanned which doesn’t help!) but now I’ve gotten used to it I feel so much more myself. I’m really settling into my own skin since moving down here. I also got my tattoo that I designed to cover up a hard past and start fresh and all I’ve had is compliments which has boosted my confidence of my drawing skills that I haven’t used in so long too.

Uni’s going amazing as well, my course is incredible and just what I want/where I want to be at. We’re in the middle of planning our 2nd shoot now. I modelled last week for my group which was strange as all I’m used to is modelling in front of my boyfriend or a fellow blogger for a standard outfit post. It’s made me feel a lot more confident being asked by two more people to model for their own shoots!

All in all I’m finally becoming the most myself I’ve ever been and have stopped trying to be society’s idea of perfect and I’ve never felt more self confident and comfortable! Talk soon ♥
