Hello there, people of the Internet! Today is all about Being Yourself. Whether it be in the way you talk (don’t try and talk differently if you have an accent; it sets you apart from everybody else!), the way you look, or the way you dress!
I dress in very Retro/Vintage style clothing 98% of the time- that means I wear different clothes, have my hair differently (most of the time in loose plaits/braids or loose ponytails) and one thing I get teased for a lot; I wear a hat! Not your ordinary hat, mind you- think Michael Jackson style!
I wear that hat with every outfit I own. You heard me right! Every. Single. Outfit. Now, no-one ever seems to think it’s just how I dress: they think I’m playing dress-up! Sorry that I don’t follow what everyone else is wearing- I don’t want to be a sheep!
Coming off my mini-rant… Onto accents! Say you’re from Newcastle and have moved to Lincolnshire where I live, you’d have a completely different accent from everyone else; except me- I have an accent where I live!
Both my parents are from Grimsby; that means I don’t pronounce my h’s right, and I replace my with me, and going with gooing! I used to get picked on a lot because of that, but eventually people stopped teasing me- because I accepted my accent!
Onto my last point in this: How you look. These days, a lot of Teen’s, Tween’s or Adults make themselves feel bad about how they look!
I have the dullest eyes, and most boring hair colour ever; but I accept that! I’m not going to go on at you about not dying your hair- it’s your decision! Heck, I’ve had mine highlighted blonde to make it look nicer, and it’s made me feel a lot more confident with how I look!
So accept yourself as you are, and don’t feel like you have to change a thing. You are Beautiful.
Lots of Love,
I’ve mentioned in quite a few posts about the Posh Fashion Awards; I’d love it if you’d nominate me for Best Newcomer here:http://bit.ly/poshfashawards
