Project Perfect

This post is basically a project started by Flaws and All (one of my favourite blogs) to promote self confidence about ones looks and body and appreciate all the good things about yourself. I think it's a fantastic idea and one worth giving a go!

I will admit, I find flaws in every single part of myself and there isn't a bit of me I like (or so I thought) so this post was really hard to do. Finding a picture I like of myself took so long! But, having done it I feel actually quite positive and I really do think that on the occasion I'm feeling particulary 'ugly' or 'fat' I'll be coming back to this post and reading the things I like about myself.

I can't put into words the idea of the Project as well as Amy from Flaws and All did, so go over to her blog and check it out (click here) but I will say that I am sitting here feeling a bit better about myself thanks to it so thank you Amy!

Here's my Project Perfect post:

A picture I like of myself:

I recently cut all my hair off (a drastic move considering it was fairly long and I'd been trying to grow it for aaaages, but one that needed doing thanks to all my split ends from dip dying my tips!) and I was so mortified at the end result, I really hated it! But this picture of me (the one closet to the camera) and my best friend changed my oppinion and now I think I prefer it to my long hair! I also like how fresh and good my skin looks, considering I'm not wearing a spot of make up!

 
3 things I dislike about myself, with a postive twist:

My mouth. I'm not a massive fan of my teeth and my lips are so dry and crack so easily! However, my boyfriend told me he fell in love with my smile :)

My body. I'm completly hung up on my body as I would love to be more toned but so many of friends compliment my figure and I know a lot of people who are naturally really thin tell me they love my curves and are envious of them.

My boobs. They are massive and I hate them! My boyriend loves them of course haha and I know there are so many females who feel really insecure about having small boobs and so go under the knife to have them bigger so having natural big boobs is not that bad.. who knows how I'd feel if they were small, Id probably still be moaning about them haha.

3 things I like about myself:

My legs. From playing football and running in my youth I've got nice, muscular toned and strong legs that get a lot of compliments.

My skin. I've only recently started wearing make up, probably in the last year or so and still don't wear it every day as I'm lucky to have good skin that doesn't really need covering up or concealing.

My hair. I love the colour and think it is in quite good condition.

So there you go :) my Project Perfect Post. It took a long time but has been utterly worth it for the confidence it's given me and, having here on my blog, I can always return to it when I'm feeling crap and need a pick up!

If you want to have a go at it, link it back to Amy from Flaws and All as she wants to read everyones!
