I am so sick and tired of skinny girls saying stuff about curvy women. Cheryl who used to be in this UK girl group called Girls Aloud said this after being criticized for being ‘too skinny’ :
‘It’s crazy double standards. You’d never be allowed to say to somebody, “Oh, you look a bit fat.” And being overweight is unhealthy – it’s actually a bad message to tell someone who is obese that they look “curvy” or “great”,’ she points out. ‘But you know what? After this length of time, there’s nothing I can hear about myself that I haven’t already heard.’
Sure, she’s allowed to think this and even say it. BUT, I hardly believe a curvy girl called her ‘too skinny’ or anything along those lines. What I’m trying to say is just because someone called you something you didn’t like you don’t have to twist it and turn it around on other people.
You found it hurtful, so why be hurtful to someone else.
I’m literally sick and tired of the body issues people have. Let people be the way they are, no shape is better than the other. And being called skinny doesn’t give you the right to call out fat people just as it doesn’t give fat people the right to say anything to skinny people.
Let us all live and be happy with the way we look, there is already enough hate in the world. Why add to it???
Love everybody, start with yourself first!!!
Of course we did a bit of shopping while away. I picked up a beautiful muovo pouch.
I also picked up a Dior liner, that I’m loving after only using it for a few days.
A bit of a splurge on the cruise was this Swarovski pen,that I picked up after a late night trip tp the tax free store after a few glasses of wine.

Last weekend I got to go away with my sister and one of our best friends. We took a cruise over to Finland. Around 10 AM on Saturday morning we arrived in the port of Helsinki and got to spend the day there.
It’s been a while since I got to spend some quality time with these ladies and I loved every second of it.
Those of you that know me know I don’t wear dresses a lot. Well, at least I didn’t before. This last year I’ve been wearing dresses and skirts more and more. And I actually feel comfortable in them whereas before I didn’t. I hated going to weddings because that required me to wear a dress. And now, I’m already looking for a dress to wear to my best friends wedding next wear. I know the color and the style I want.
Here are two outfits I wore in the last few weeks.
This leopard dress is from H&M, I got it just a few weeks ago. You might still find it in your local store although I didn’t find it online.
Here I’m wearing a New Look dress that you can find in the sale HERE . It’s only 7,20 Euros, a total bargain! With it I’m wearing Zizzi tights and Primark wedge boots.
New Look has an amazing SALE going on overall, you have to check it out!
Happy shopping ladies (and gents)!
This NYX lipstick in MLS04 Pale Pink has been a favorite all summer long.
These last few years H&M has had some amazing bags in their collections and this year is no exception. I came across a post on Instagram while searching for a burgundy bag for fall of a bag from H&M and I fell in love. It’s the perfect sized bag for me and exactly what I love. I had to get it even though I really don’t need it as I was gifted three bags this summer.
But just look at it, isn’t it amazing?
I know it’s gonna be a favorite this fall for me…
A few days ago I was browsing Ebay for a travel case for my makeup brushes. I didn’t find anything so if anyone knows about one, let me know. The struggle is real out here to find one.
But, I did find some other bits that I’m super excited about. Can’t wait for them to arrive.
Some fun and unusual pieces, exactly what I love.
I know I said I was coming back with a bang and I intended to but life got in the way. I was involved in a car accident a few weeks ago, thankfully I’m ok but it has made me think, about a lot of stuff. I’m not gonna go into it more than to say I’m reevaluating a lot of things.
But, the blog is only gonna get bigger and better, just wait for it and have some patience.
Here we go!

How are you all!?
I’m just stopping by to say hello. I’ve been trying to get everything ready for when I’m away on vacation in the next few weeks, therefore the absence.
This weekend I got to spend some quality time with some of my fave before we all split up and head in different directions. Actually, while writing that last sentence I realized I get to see them when we are away as well.
Three weeks in Bosnia and Croatia is what I’m looking forward too…
What are you guys doing this summer. Are you traveling.
