Day 8 #BeRealMarch

Eugh, I'm feeling awful tired today. I woke up with all these strange aches and pains and no recollection of how I'd gotten them.

My legs and hips are really sore and one arm (underneath), like I've been lifting something heavy (I haven't). I certainly don't recall doing anything strenuous yesterday.  My ankles felt swollen too, so I applied some of my trusty Clarins Energizing Emulsion. Just a pity I can't put it all over!  Anyway, I look like I haven't slept much here (hello eye bags), but you know how I was talking about that big freckle I hate the other day? Well there's another one I'm not fond of, if you go downwards from the outer corner of my eye, it's below that, see it?  I think I've edited that out in the past too as it has a tendency to look like eyeshadow fall-out or smudged eyeliner!  I guess I'm inadvertently going to be revealing all the little things I dislike (I mean not as in "oh my gosh sooo terrible, must have surgery to fix that" just niggly things), but I suppose for some balance I should admit my lips look pretty nice here and that's with nothing on them.  That felt awkward though-I find it much easier to point out something I dislike rather than something I like...is everyone like that or just me?  See you tomorrow x

  1. I think you look beautiful, but I completely get what you mean about finding something to dislike far easier than admitting something to like - it's hard to do but I'm trying to think more positively about myself and my life and I think posts like this help as it is difficult to do also thank you for the lovely comment on my last post - spring is making me happy! :) Lovely post and I'm really enjoying these! - Tasha

    1. Thank you Tasha. I think it's a work in progress, I need to constantly remind myself to be more positive, but it's hard when you're feeling down about your appearance because you never get dressed up. I realise I used to rely on clothes and fancy hair and makeup and now have to see beauty in other things.

      Daffies are just so cheerful, I love when they come out (though my hayfever hates them).

  2. I'm totally the same - I'm the first to comment on something about myself that I don't like but I feel so awkward saying something positive. I've been trying though (a few days ago I felt like I was having a good hair day so I said it and the world didn't end, haha:))

    I'm so proud of you for doing this!

    1. Aw thank you. It's easier than I was expecting. I thought I'd maybe feel like chickening out at some point, but I'm spurred on to keep going. Glad to hear we all feel like that.

  3. Awww, I like the freckles, they are cute! Though again, like the above, I know what you mean- I have a kite shape if you dot-to-dotted four of my moles/freckles on my face which always annoys me! The hair is niceeeee!x

    1. Isn't it funny the things we pick out that we dislike that other people probably a) don't notice or b) like about us!

  4. Your skin looks so glowing and awesome! I'm my biggest self-critic too, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I think you look gorge! xx
