Project Perfect

I was recently followed by Amy from Flaws and All and after clicking onto her blog one of the things I fell in love with was her 'Project Perfect' concept. The main idea behind it all is to raise your own and others self esteem. We are all guilty of having certain down days about ourselves, those days where your hair resembles a lions mane that you just can't tame, or even worse those days where you just can't look in the mirror. In today's society people often focus on the negative, for instance many beauty magazines highlight a certain celebs celluite to ridicule. Why the obsession with putting others down, does it really make us feel that much better about ourselves?

Amy's project seeks to change this perception of beauty and help people start to feel better about themselves and this is a project worth mentioning in my opinion.
Here's what you need to do...
1. Post a photo that you like of yourself and say in a couple of sentences why you like it.
2. State some things that you DON'T like yourself but say why others may love to be like that.
3. State 3 things that you DO like about yourself.

So here's my photo that I like about myself 
Okay, so it's not just a photo of myself, I'm with my gorgeous friend Ellie. Looking for a photo I genuinely liked of myself on my own was hard as I've realised I rarely get my photo taken alone without pulling some obscene face. I really like how I look in this photo (despite the sun burnt shoulders) because my hair looks healthy and so does my skin and that really makes me feel better about myself.
Thing that I don't like about myself, but others do/might want
1. I have complicated stages of loving and embracing my pale skin and absolutely hating it and selling out to fake tan and an even olive skin tone. When I do get down about it it's mainly not because I'm pale but because as my skin is so fair depending on whether I'm hot or cold it can go a horrid pink colour or white blue tinge in the cold which I really hate.

2. I not a fan of my teeth and feel self conscious smiling sometimes. I'm one of those people always on the hunt for a whiter smile. However, my boyfriend thinks my smile is one of my most attractive physical qualities so it can't be all that bad :)

Three things that I do like about myself
1. I really do love my hair, despite odd moments when people have teased me in the past I've really learnt to love my shade of auburn. I've never dyed my hair because I'm scared of losing that colour, and roots would look awful. I used to sell my hair to my hairdresser so she could make wigs out of it and I find myself receiving more praise than ridicule. I like how it makes me stand out.

2. I have quite long eyelashes which despite and obsessive habit at picking at them have remained quite thick and lengthy.

3. I like my lips, they are quite full and rosy red.

 If you fancy having a go at doing this remember to let Amy know!
