Beach Vibes

Hi loves,
Sometimes I forget how lucky I am to be living in a beautiful country like Australia. I'm so fortunate to be able to live comfortably, and happily in a place that lets me be me.
I can sometimes take a lot of things for granted while living in this country; the house I live in, the food on the table, the interesting weather, and also the access and beauty of our beaches.
I've got to admit, I'm not at all a fan of Summer, the heat, and the beach. I don't like finding sand in places they shouldn't be. I don't like the struggle of trying to get dry and changing in dirty public restrooms. I don't like burning my skin no matter how much SPF I lather on myself. I don't like birds staring at me like I'm a piece of meat. I don't like wearing my bikini because to be honest, I'm ashamed of my mummy body.

It's not something that's so easy to embrace. I know I preach self-love and embracing your beauty almost every outfit post I put up, but it's easier said than done.

When I slap on a bikini, I know I have this body because I was strong enough to carry a baby, and deliver that child into this world. I know that, my friends and family know that. These strangers don't know that. They can blatantly judge me and think that I just don't take care of my body. And that's what's hard about this: pretending like you don't care what other people think, when deep down, you actually kind of do.

I preach loving yourself because I want you all to work on yourself, to make sure you love you.
Of course I know it requires a lot of progress, so there's no rush. I just want to make sure you eventually learn to love yourself, and embrace all of your flaws and imperfections.
I'm certainly on this journey along with you all.
