Insecurities

Anyone ever feel unhappy with their appearance? Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining,.I'm grateful to God. Although, I'm not perfect, I'm not a sore to the eye; at least I don't think so. I think my problem is that I refused to believe the fact that as I'm getting older, things change. These things might not be necessarily bad, but because I'm not used to it, I refuse to adapt. That's one thing I'm not good at. Adapting. But that's not the only reason why I feel insecure, I compare myself to people sometimes. Like other people with perfect bodies and looks and stuff. But soon enough I'll get over it. You shouldn't ever compare yourself to others. Its not healthy and definitely not worth it, and chances are, others compare themselves to you too in one way or another. So, always remember that!! :) I try my very hardest to be confident in myself, but sometimes, a couple of insecurities slip in. Its only a matter of time before get back to my normal confident-ish self. And I think a lot of people go through this too. If you do, You're not alone. I feel like Oprah man.

Topshop crop top. Vintage leather shorts, next leopard print belt.

p.s. 1 when I was featured on Fashion bomb, I got a few email asking me how I keep me hair in a bun, and if I fill it up with something. The answer is no. Its Natural. during fashion week in February, someone asked me if i stuff my hair with socks. Then it was much fuller. but um, sucks, really? you could've said like cloth or sumn. I'm considering doing a weave now.. I've had my hair out for 2 months. That's a very long time for me. Its been hard considering the fact that I set a goal for myself to not straighten my hair ever! I cheated once or twice when I had enough of the tangling and frizzballs. You DO NOT want to see my hair when i haven't straightned it and its not in a bun. I look like a maniac. I have been surviving on hair driers and hair serum. I'm thinking about doing this milk/egg thing to my hair tomorrow. Sounds gross, but it makes the hair shiny :D

Enough about hair talk. Fashion week s/s 12 is soon! Don't know what's gonna be up then, but I should be at a few shows like last time. And of course I'll show you guys all the ACTION!!

Back to my shows Basketball wives and lie to me;) And I need to catch up on Bad girls club too. WHO RUN IT?!

Till next time fellas

  2. Preach my dear. I know all about getting older and if you have a passion for fashion and food the two can be in stark opposition to each other or rather that fast metabolism of youth can turn on you (not that they have to be simply a result of the haute couture images of models)
    Love of self is a life long devotion and it sounds like you have your head well, so allow for those cracks and there will always be ladies whom would give anyone pause. You are a beauty and and that never diminishes merely deepens!

  13. lovely shots, what you say is so true, we're always so hard on ourselves and forget that everyone else is probably doing the same, and comparing themselves to us! xx

  14. i guess everyone knows those times when you feel insecure and just not as confident as you should. i think that all of this comparing-oneself-to-others-issue is a coming and going thing..and i like your frankness! not many people share their thoughts and doubts honestly on their blog (which i pretty much like as well!! :))
    keep on being yourself and stop comparing to other people .. you really don't need to! :)

  30. Everyone compares themselves to others, sometimes its healthy and at other times is detrimental to your self esteem. I always say if you have an insecurity that you can fix, ie. weight or dental work that you can fix, go for it. If it is something innate pray to God to give you the strength to continuously love yourself for who you truly are!
