Love The Skin You’re In Tag

LOVE THE SKIN YOURE IN

Just the title of this tag on Lil’s blog made me jump over straight away. This couldn’t be more my thing and these topics are something I want to discuss more on my blog. I did a similar tag before called the Self Esteem Tag so I would love it if you checked that out too.

We’re talking about ‘loving the skin you’re in’.

I have to give a massive thank you to Lil for tagging me in this and essentially creating a boss ass tag. Her post is here.

Rules

  • Thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their blog in your post
  •  Display the “love the skin you’re in” image.
  • Be truthful when answering the questions and don’t judge what other people have answered in their posts.
  • If you want to add any questions to this tag related to body positivity feel free to.
  • Try to nominate as many people as you can, if not everyone.

Questions

One feature you love about yourself? I answered this as my eyes in the Self Esteem Tag but I honestly don’t know. I am struggling with this. At the moment, in my current frame of mind I don’t think I could write something down and it be truly honest and that’s not what this blog is about – I am 100% open with you guys. So, nope, right now, I don’t love any of my features but I am working on it.

One feature you wish/wished you could change that you are trying to accept or have accepted? I think I would choose the colour of my hair or my freckles. I have had people shout at me and intimidate me in public places because of my hair that made me feel terrible. I grew up with very few people in the public eye/celebrity realm that looked like me and I found it incredibly hard. I am trying to embrace it and ironically enough, my hair is something I get positive comments on now on a weekly basis – crazy how you remember the negative comments more though. I do wish I had clear skin with just a scattering of freckles on my arms the most though, I’m not a fan of it on me.

Have you ever thought of getting surgery to change you imperfections? Yep. I would like to get laser eye surgery as I don’t particularly enjoy wearing glasses daily and seeing my eyesight deteriorate! I have considered a breast enhancement too. I am pear shaped and although I am doing my best to embrace how I look, I would feel massively different if I just had an extra cup size or 2 to help out. I feel like if this is still something that weighs me down in years to come, it will become a serious consideration.

One of your main role models for body positivity? I have a few! I love Gracie (@GraceFVictory on Twitter) because she keeps it real and is just fantastic. She doesn’t pretend or apologise for how she looks. She owns it. I love her confidence and I admire her honesty with those that follow her. She’s someone I would love as a friend!

Has a family member or friend ever put you down about your physical appearance? If so what for? Yeah I have had comments from family members but never ones from friends that have stuck with me anyway. Normally it is comments about my legs as (because I am pear shaped) I have larger legs than my torso. I say larger loosely as I am still only a size UK 8 which isn’t large in the slightest.

Something you love about your fashion sense or style? That some colours just look bomb on redheads and I love it. I have really embraced red, khaki and white this season because I feel like it just complements my hair perfectly.

Why is your body a great place to be? Right now, it probably isn’t but I am determined to have a different answer to this in the future.

I Tag..

Everyone! I feel like this is such an eye opening and important tag and I would absolutely love and recommend that anybody who wants to, does it!

  1. This tag is amazing!! I just remembered I was tagged to, but I forgot to write it down so it slipped my mind! It does remind me of the self-esteem tag, it’s good to reflect on these questions. I like how honest you are in them, it makes this tag a lot more powerful. I aim to do the same in mine 🙂
    P.S. I’m with you on laser eye surgery. My eyes are bad enough, and I don’t need them getting worse 😂

  2. Hi Ella,

    Loved this tag. I recently did one called ‘The Perfectly Imperfect Tag’ which I think you’d be interested in. Consider yourself nominated if you’d like to do it. It’s my second most recent post, so it should be easy to find.

  3. Thank you, I loved reading this and seeing everyone else’s feedback on it. I hope this tag really helps to spread body positivity around the blogging community. By the way, you should never be self conscious of your hair it is absolutely beautiful. Some girls, including myself, would kill for hair like yours. Thanks again for spreading the message 😊 xxxxx

  4. Love love love this tag! I think that wanting bigger boobs is something I wanted years ago, being pear shaped back then and now seeing my shape change is quite disheartening, especially when I can’t find small enough 32A bras in places like H&M very easily. That said, this is one feature I’ve learned/am learning to accept, so hopefully in time you’ll feel the same way. You rock! x
