bananas, melon and strawberries πŸŒπŸˆπŸ“ // if you ever feel like your body isn't beautiful and you need to change it, ask yourself first: why do you want to change yourself so badly? to fit in? to look like some fake model? remember that there isn't anything beautiful about changing yourself solely to look like someone else. You are You & you are beautiful the way you are. accept yourself and love every inch that belongs to you. everyone is different, and everyone is beautiful in their own way. πŸŒΉπŸŒΏβ€πŸ’•

last night i watch the film Three Generations (About Ray), which is a film about a transgender young teen and the difficulties he has throughout the whole process. // 🌹 i fully support transgender people - i see it as a real big struggle, almost like a torture, because i have absolutely no idea what it's like not to feel like you were born on the right body. i may hate my body, but i love being a girl and feel comfortable with my gender. but how does it really feels to those who feel like they were born on the wrong body, that they have the opposite genetals? or those who don't feel like anything at all?! specially as it is a huge stigma in our society, but it's slowly changing thank god. 🌿 a beautiful film, with a lovely message, wonderful performance from the amazing @ellefanning. if you like this kind of films/subjects, you should definitely watch it. it's life changing and gives you a big view on that matter. // i am learning a lot about these kind of issues more and more. it's sad how most people don't make any effort to support these people, and all they do is criticize. if you don't understand, it's okay; what isn't okay is being rude to others. all people are worth love and support. ❀

let's talk about #cellulite πŸ˜ŠπŸ’“.
cellulite is probably the number 1 thing that people (specially women) hate about their bodies. NEWS FLASH: there is nothing to hate about cellulite. cellulite IS NOT a synonymous of being overweight/unhealthy/etc. cellulite can be caused by many factors, such as: a poor diet, lack of exercise, bad blood circulation, stress, smoking, drinking alcohol, genetics, hormones, etc...; however, you can have the cleanest diet, exercise regularly, be thin, and still have it! you can be underweight and still have it! cellulite is normal!!!! almost everyone has it! and there is absolutely nothing to hate about it!!! cellulite is beautiful 🌹, so don't hate your body because you have lumps and bumps! you are beautiful with all these imperfections, which makes you beautiful! // YOUR BODY IS A TEMPLE, SO HANDLE IT WITH LOVE & CARE πŸƒβ€

you don't have to be who you don't want to for someone else's comfort πŸŒ’πŸ’«. for the longest time, some time ago, years now, i tried to fit in where i wasn't meant to. i tried so hard to be a person i wasn't and was never going to be πŸ’₯. veganism helped me into becoming a different person (the girl i was inside- not the one i shown to others). in my early teen years i thought that all that mattered was to have a big group of friends, hang out with the popular kids, drink, smoke, partying,... but that kind of person isn't who i am, so terribly regret the years i wasted into trying so hard to fit in. 🌹🌱. my lesson is: BE WHO YOU WANT TO BE. EVERYTHING'S POSSIBLE AS LONG AS YOU BELIEVE // i hope everyone's having a lovely friday. you are all amazing πŸžπŸŒΎπŸŒΏπŸ’«πŸ’ž

i want to talk about something that has been bothering me ever since i noticed that i was different from everyone else, and that is: my height. i haven't always been conscious about my height whatsoever, like when i was in primary school i was on an average height for my age, etc; however, once i was about 10/11 years-old things started to change, because all my colleges and friends were taller than me and i was receiving many rude and hurtful comments about my size and how short i was. everyone made those kind of comments, even some teachers, doctor, etc. some people even made me feel like IT was my fault to be that short. sometimes, i would even fall asleep wishing that the next day i would be taller...but, of course, it never happened. since i got my period for the first time (around age 9/10) i have only grew a few cm, and i think that that was the main reason why i stopped growing up. of course, that both my parents aren't tall, but they are way taller than me, and, no, i won't grow more, since i'm already 20 y/o. so basically for pretty much all my life i was told i was too short and never looked my age (i still get loads of comments about it), at it has always hurt my feelings, but all i ever did was smile and agree. however, i still care about it and makes me sad because i wish i was at least a few cm taller, but that is something i cannot change; so i've come to learn that i am beautiful no matter short i am - we all are πŸŒΉπŸ’ž. so, before you make any comment about other people apperances think before talk, because you be make them feel terrible about what they cannot change! β€’photo from tumblr πŸŒ™

when i saw the trailer of the film a few weeks/months?? ago, i thought of it as a clichΓ© and super cringy, not to mention as awfully triggering. to be totally fair, anything that mentions anoreixa/eating disorders makes me super uncomfortable and triggered.
i swore i wouldn't watch this film, because it could trigger my old habits and as i'm definitely far from being both mentally and phsyically recovered. however, i had a vision that it would change my life, that this film could actually do more good than harm. that is why i challenged myself into watching it and facing my own demons.
it's true that i no longer look ill like Ellen in the film, and i never got that far- at least that's what i think... but my head is so fucked up, so i needed a little kick... i don't think it was triggering, probably a bit clichΓ© at some point, but it was extremely eye-opening!!! i swear i cried so many times throughout the film, but the two times i was so sad for Ellen and for my own struggles was when, -SPOILER-, Ellen's mum was feeding her with a babies' bottle & the second was at the end when she was sat up at a tree with Luke and looked down and saw her tiny figure and at that time she realised how ill she really was.
this film doesn't glamorise anorexia, at least i don't think it does. it's so much more than that, it's a new perspective of what an eating disorder feels like!
i actually loved it soooo much! and it didn't trigger me at all; i think it made me want to recover even more! .
IMPORTANT SIDE NOTE: you don't have to look like Ellen to be sick, unhealthy, to have any eating disorder, because eating disorders can happen to all sort of people. please be safe! if you think it will trigger YOU, don't watch it! ❀ #tothebone #lilycollins

a little snack from yesterday: watermelon and apples πŸ‰πŸ. both are homegrown and were super delicious!!! // going home today, so i'm definitely overly excited about that πŸ‘πŸ’“! "dripping grapefruit-colored skies - soft caresses of sun rays - temperate embraces of warm winds - honey glazed fingers running through the wind on long drives - lightly floating sundresses - building sand castles next to gently crashing waves". happy thursday. love you β›…πŸŒŠβ€

scrolled through this on tumblr and i quite wanted to share it with you all, how good does this looks though? 🍫😩 i am definitely mouthwatering over this beauty! if you know from whom this is, please tag them! // i also want to wish a marvelous bday to the beautiful @veganbloom_ lysm β›…πŸ°β€

there is no possible way you don't love these little tiny cutie babies 🐷❀ awww. i am seriously in love with this photo (via tumblr ~ not mine). who'd ever have the audicity to hurt these two angels?! // wishing you all a lovely monday and week. be true to yourself. be happy and be kind. πŸŒ™βœ¨πŸ’›

lunch from yesterday 🌿 salad, oven baked sweet and white potatoes & two different types of hummus 😌❀! // ➺QUESTION❗do you buy and only eat organic foods or you don't really care about it? there has been a huge controversy on my country about organic fruit and vegetables, because it has been found bad chemicals on them (like it can be found on the conventional); so i wonder whether it is all a lie....thankfully i am very blessed that my father has land and we can plant and grow many different vegetables and fruits, therefore i we don't have to buy a lot of it.
hope everyone is having a great friday πŸ’«β˜β€
