Post a Quote a Day Challenge Day #2

Take your make-up off/ Let your hair down/ Take a breath/ Look into the mirror, at yourself/ Don’t you like you?/ ‘Cause I like you

Do you guys remember when Colbie Calliat’s music video for ‘Try’ came out? I do, very clearly. I remember reading an article on Buzzfeed about it and a gif set from the video almost bringing me to tears! When I saw the full music video, though, I really started crying. At the time I didn’t know why I had gotten so emotional, but now when I look back on it I think that it was something to do with the fact that subconsciously I could strongly relate to the message of the song. I, like most girls, have felt this pressure growing up to adhere to society’s idea of ‘beautiful’. When I noticed that the boys in my year weren’t looking at me and the only person who called me pretty was my mum, I began to think that there was something wrong with me. I didn’t really have a problem with how I looked, but because other people didn’t approve of me I felt like I wasn’t good enough.

Of course, this idea I had was absolutely ridiculous! The only person I should have ever aimed to impress was myself, and that is why I love this quote so much. In this video Colbie isn’t saying that there’s anything wrong with wearing makeup, but rather you shouldn’t be wearing it as a mask to impress others. At the end of the day, although wearing makeup is really nice, you should be able to take a makeup wipe to your face, look in the mirror and think ‘hey, I am beautiful!’. It took me a while to get to that point, and it was difficult. Even now I have my ‘off’ days, but this song serves as a reminder to me that, even when I don’t feel like it’s possible, I am beautiful and I don’t need to try to be anything to impress anyone. Needless to say, I think that this video should be required viewing for all women!

Here it is. Get the tissues ready.

Ok, that’s all from me!

Today I nominate Dark Charm to take on this challenge 😛

I hope you guys are having an amazing day

Lots of love

-Daisy 🙂

Hello everyone!

Just a heads up: this is going to be a shorter post than usual today. Believe it or not, I’ve actually been super busy! But, as a result of this increase in productivity I have noticed that my blog posts are becoming less well-prepared! (Which is ironic, because one of the main reasons why I wanted to blog was to stay productive. Oh well :P)

OK, I REALLY don’t know what I’m doing right now!

Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award Volume Two!

Hello everyone!

I always feel so privileged whenever I am nominated for an award, and today was absolutely no exception! I have decided now, since I have completed all of the major blogging awards, that I will continue to do any of the awards that I am nominated for as long as they are the ones with the different questions (as lovely as the Versatile and Creative blogger awards are, there are only so many facts about me that I can think of off the top of my head!). So it’s with this in mind that I present to you my answers to the questions from the lovely Chanelle Hayley. If you haven’t already, go and follow her blog ASAP! She does really great beauty reviews and hauls 🙂 Thank you once again for the nomination! XD
