I'll Never Be Your 'Typical Girl'

Yes, I'm using that cliche 'I am not your typical girl' to read more!

Yes, I'm using that cliche 'I am not your typical girl' term... 

I get drunk. Blind drunk, to the point where peeing in a bush sounds like the best idea I've ever had. I love to literally stuff my face with bad food after a night out and sometimes even on an average day or evening. I might wear false nails, but the skin around them is constantly picked at. I draw over my brows like any other girl, but I certainly won't pluck them for a good few weeks.

Who honestly has the time to be honest? Just because I am a female doesn't mean I should conform to peoples standards. Especially men who expect too much of me, you wouldn't hear me requesting that you shave your legs you hairy beast!

I will always embrace my flaws and never care about making too much of an effort.

While I am not the most gruesome, I shan't hide away from certain topics of conversation just because it is deemed to be a 'guy thing'. If I need to let out a burp, I will, even in front of Zac Efron or Jamie Dornan. What will be, will be. 

I love makeup, the colour pink and wearing lots and lots of glitter. I love strongly scented flowery perfumes and wearing beautiful sparkling jewellery, but I also enjoy wearing my dads Harrington, ripped tights and last nights unbrushed hair.

I count calories, cry about my weight and refuse to accept compliments. I compare my life to rom-com's and John Hughes 80's films, but I know who I truly am deep down. I know that it is important to love yourself no matter what. 

I'm not ashamed of who I am. How I act and whether it's 'ladylike' enough. To put it politely I couldn't give less of a fuck. Both my male and female friends will get the same reaction or attention from me. Gender should never make you fear the way you act. Love should be real, never put on a cute girl persona if it isn't the real you. They'll find out once you let your guard down anyway and if it's meant to be, they'll love you anyway.

“Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.”

I like to believe that's what makes me unique. My fearless attitude towards being myself. The truest version of me I could ever be. Nothing less, but perhaps more if I feel like it.

My skin is not always silky smooth and feminine, I can't be bothered to moisturise 24/7, I am not a Dove model. I have love handles, a belly and a chicken nugget tattoo on my massive arse. What can you do other than accept yourself and make use of what you're given?

I will never look like a Victoria Secret model, I'm far too short, and I do not have 'Great Abs' on my CV. My skin is not glowing with angel dust, and my teeth won't blind you, but I do know that I will make you laugh just my laughing my own contagious giggle. Perhaps I'll get abs after all...

Anyway, after rambling on in what feels like my first blog post in forever, what I am trying to say is this:

Girls. Stop trying to achieve perfection when you are already so bloody wonderful. You don't need lip injections to attract a partner. Nor do you need implants in any shape or form. If you want them, do it, you own the right to make your own choices, but do it for YOU. Learn to use your amazing personality, none of us is that 'typical girl'. We are unique individuals.

Guys. Some of you expect far too much from us. We can't all have Kylie Jenner lips and a J-Lo butt. Most of us can't afford it! Learn that these celebrities are not always a real representation. Date someone because they make you laugh and can hold an intelligent conversation. He/She might be fit but do you really want to listen to them talk shit about their looks for an hour? 

Guys and Girls. Fucking LOVE yourselves. You are worthy of love and happiness. Life is not about who owns the most brands or how much hotter you are than someone else. Instagram is not real life. Your real life is waiting to be lived. Truly lived and enjoyed without the constant worry of scrutiny from strangers or peers. They are not your friends.

I'm off to get embarrassingly red lipstick smeared chicken nugget scoffing drunk.
