Some of you may know that I’ve been struggling with my mental health recently. One slightly more visible sign of this is when I fail to look after my appearance properly. When I felt like my true self, I dressed up, wore make-up, and always, always, painted my nails. But recently it has seemed like an effort to even get in the shower in the morning. The days spent in my pyjamas, without washing or brushing my teeth, were signs of an underlying malaise. Yesterday, I went shopping for make-up and accessories, and I had a little bit of an experiment with groovy eye makeup.
And another thing that makes me feel great, and also is a sign of me feeling great, is taking a ton of #selfies! The chattering classes may look down on this medium, but I think it’s an underrated art form. I take them when I’m feeling strange, feeling happy, in new and exciting places I’ve discovered, when I’ve achieved something, when I’ve had a tattoo or piercing, and just whenever the hell I want, really.
I went a bit OTT with todays selfie sesh, but look at how fabulous I am!
|I love Stargazer’s products, they’re super-bright and they really stand out. And they’re not just lippy & eyeliner, they do everything from hair paint to body glitter (more pics to follow). I love to flaunt it, and I’m making the most of this period of high self-esteem. Bring on the bling!|
