Perfect Imperfections

This is a tag that’s been around for a while and I honestly don’t know why I haven’t done it earlier. applesandamandas recently made a video doing this tag and I got inspired to make a post of my own.

Basically, the whole point of this is to talk about three features that you don’t like about yourself and three features that you like about yourself.

It’s very rare that we see people talking about things that they like when it comes to the way they look. You might be scared that people will think you’re conceited, or you just might focus on the things you don’t like about yourself more. Whatever the reason, we should always be celebrating ourselves and focusing on the things that make us who we are and show ourselves and our bodies endless love.

My under eye area has always been an insecurity of mine. The skin there is very thin and I am very pale so it looks like I always have dark circles. Trust me, I typically get enough sleep, it’s not that. I’ve had dark circles since I came out of the womb, you can see them in my baby pictures. Not only do I have dark circles, but that area is also pretty hollow. It’s always somewhat evident no matter how much concealer I use, which can be frustrating when you have a blog and post a lot of photos of yourself. I’ve even looked into getting under eye fillers to make the area smoother, and although I haven’t gotten anything done the temptation still lingers.

You know when someone points something out that you’re insecure about? Yeah, that happens a lot with this one. I have a dent in the middle of my nose, right at the tip. Kind of like a butt chin but on my nose. Another thing I have wanted to get filler in. I also hate how wide my nose looks when I smile which is why I don’t do it often in photos.

My body in general has always been an insecurity of mine, especially my stomach area. Many of you know I have been both under weight and over weight, but through every phase of my body I was always insecure about my body and always looking at my stomach in the mirror. My body is also pretty asymmetrical which is something that I always wonder if people can see. And I’m as flat chested as a prepubescent boy so. Although I have come a long way mentally with the way I think about my body, there’s still some insecurity. I love my body and everything that it does for me but I still need to work on the amount of times I examine myself in a mirror.

I love my lips, big fan. They’re not huge but they’re just plump enough and I think they compliment the rest of my face. I am very white so I’m honestly just blessed that I have an upper lip. No but really, I think they’re cute and I’ve always liked them. I also like their natural color which is probably a reason why I almost always forget to put on lipstick.

I actually used to not like this about myself which I can see getting a lot of backlash but I’ve come to love my eyes. They’re green and kind of gold and also change shades depending on the situation so yeah I guess they’re pretty cool. I don’t know where I got them from though because my dad has grey eyes and my mom has blue eyes and my grandparents have either brown or blue eyes so. I think this still counts as one along with eyes so I’ll include that I like my eyelashes. They’re pretty long, even though they’re half blonde so you can’t tell unless I put on mascara. But yeah, my eyes and lashes are a good combo.

Lat but not least, maybe one of my favorite things about myself is my collarbones, my décolletage if you will. I don’t know why but I’ve always loved collarbones and I love showing mine off. They make me feel so feminine and I just love them… did I mention I love them?
