SUNDAY LOVE. #53. J'ADORE MYSELF.


Somethings in life don't come for free but loving yourself won't cost you anything. I haven't had the smoothest ride so far and for only 24 years on this planet, I would like to think that maybe things would slow down a little for me. With my loved ones coming and going too soon, battles with myself and my heart taking a little wee beating, I have finally decided that through all of this pain, I need to love myself more than anything. 

A self-indulgent post you may be thinking but it's true for everyone. Focusing on number one can sometimes be the last thing you think of doing, when we all have responsibilities, children to look after, other halves who need your support, you come last.

Over the last few weeks, I have finally got my gear into action and started working on building myself back up again. I haven't fully shared why things have been difficult but in a nut shell, i've been a little lost in my personal life, work suddenly took a huge turn and I'm now rushed off my feet along with somewhere in between trying to see friends, family and keeping myself sane. Things got hectic and my skin took a turn for the worse, which I just couldn't handle. As a beauty blogger, every part of you gets scrutinised and as soon as I had a scarred chin full of painful spots I was terrified of showing my face, resulting in me splashing out and buying every sort of concealer possible! I have so much respect for anyone with spot prone skin and especially acne sufferers, as I never really realised how much it can affect you personally. It certainly made me feel self-conscious and unattractive, as if everyone was only looking at my spots!

Since stepping back, trying to love myself again has become priority and by focusing on myself, I've managed to find that happy infectious Becki again.

I managed to started hitting up those fabulous blog events again and trying to see a few friends a week, it's bizarre how much a little bit of you time can really boost you back up again. Although silly to many, blogging is a massive part of my life and gives me confidence. Having something to focus on that you are in control gives me focus and somewhere to share a passion. I have given so much of my life to LLP and I wouldn't change it for the world. So here's to loving yourself and keeping the love alive as I am turning the big 25 on the 7th, there is no time like the present!

Hugs & Kisses

  1. I get quite down on a Sunday night so I love reading your Sunday posts as they always.give me hope for the new week rather than anxiety about it. I have suffered from moderate to.severe acne for a while now. It's currently (just) under control, but I'm now proud of.how I behaved and carried on when it was at it's worst as you're right - it effects you massively psychologically! Great to hear you're on top of things again atm; I think the promise of.Spring really helps us all too!
    Looking forward to next week's post,
