Just here to break up your newsfeed full of perfectly posed bikini photos 👙
I follow probably 95% hot girls (the other 3% are popcorn brands & 2% are puppies) & don’t get me wrong I’m always showing Mat my fav instagrammers’ holiday photos, droolin’ over them, crushin’ on them but... a lot of the time, as much as I admire them, it really doesn’t help inspire me & it actually still makes me feel a little self conscious.
I’d much prefer to see something I can relate to & go ‘oh they have that too, I’m not the only one’, like sitting down & having a little Father Christmas inspired tumtum 🎅🏼
This wasn’t even me ‘bloated’ or at the end of the day, it was 10am, day 5 of the most incredible Sri Lankan adventure 🇱🇰 I have gone through so much with my body, spent so much time hating it, not feeding it & trying to cover it up, choosing a swimming costume over a bikini... BUT I promise you, it feels SO GOOD when you just make best friends with all the bits you don’t like. I workout, I eat well, I look after myself & my health is my priority but it’s all out of my control when I go away, my body just doesn’t react well or adapt & I always feel a bit fuller, I expand a little. A few years ago I used to get myself so upset about it that it would ruin my holiday but from experience & growing up, I now know holidays aren’t about how you look in a bikini, or in a photo, they’re about creating memories & exploring with the people you’re with. The happiest times in your life will be nothing to do with your body or how you look, they will be because of the people you’re with or the places you’re in 🌎🧡💛
