Hey everyone! As I type this I am bummed out about having to go to work while everyone else seems to be enjoying an extra long bridge weekend. Boo! I have however been taking full advantage (read: midday naps) of my Fridays off. I intended to use those days for productive things like laundry, cleaning, drawing and going to the gym, but NAHHH.
However I have taken it upon myself to go back to the gym – as I’ve probably stated a million times before, lel – especially considering I had to carefully select and crop these images for the mere sake of continuity (and vanity, obv) because I looked pretty much preggers in a lot of the pictures. Seeing the images on the camera display prompted me to go back home and change (haha) and come up with a new anti-blog concept which would involve the tagline “just another chubby chick trying to fit into her skinny jeans” and outfit photo descriptions along the lines of “today I decided to get out of my jim-jams, put down the potato chips, get dressed and find a wall to take pictures of – needless to say we went back to that filthy beige walls with the fuckin stripes”.
You know I’m all about body positivity and acceptance but I guess it’s one of those things easier said than done. Also I’m still super pissed about my botched haircut (note to self: don’t ever try and go for bangs again. ever) so that’s not really helping my self esteem. I was so pissed I even took the time to sign up to Yelp and write a nasty review about the salon.
Can we talk about things that are cool though? Like Zalando stocking Topshop. That’s pretty neat right? I was recommended the Leigh skinny jeans left and right and decided to go for it considering my Tiger of Sweden jeans ripped on me after only 3 months of light wear. Boo Tiger of Sweden! That’s some seriously bad quality. Luckily, Zalando kindly offered to either pay for getting it fixed, or refund the full price. I went for the latter. Because fuck you Tiger of Sweden. Fuck you.
Also on the list of cool things: Pimp shoes! I had been eyeing these snakeskin printed, studded and bedazzled shoe boots for a while and then they were 25% off so of course they landed in my shopping basket. It had been a while since I treated myself to a good statement shoe (or any shoe at all) and I’d reverted to living in my trusty old & Other Stories boots. They’re nice, but they’re not very exciting. Snakeskin printed, studded and bedazzled pimp shoes however, are.
Enjoy your Armistice Day folks!
