I'm back after an extended break. Studying, holidays and lack of motivation overcame me and the blog slipped down on the priority list. But I'm back and feeling re-energised and promise to be more present! In the meantime, not that I plan another disappearance, you can catch up with me on instragram (@ellecurve).
I've been sitting on these photos all week for the Aussie Curves theme of swimwear and am only just making the deadline. When I first saw them I loved them and had an amazing time on the beach enjoying the water and not covering up or caring how I looked. And then of course with time I started to falter. I began comparing my bikini body to other girl's, I started to zoom into the flaws and I tried to get feedback from everyone rather than looking to myself.
I like to think of myself as a confident person with ever-increasing body image. I often wear edgier clothes than my skinny friends and I love trying new looks. But I still fight that internal voice and I imagine I will to the day I die. But the key is to keep trying, keep faking it and keep surrounding yourself with amazing people (hello Aussie Curvettes!).
So here I am in all my fat, pale, bikini-clad glory! And P.S. just bought another one!
High-waisted bikini bottoms: City Chic
