Jenny’s in a bad mood

Battling negative views about yourself can be absolutely draining, because in no way is it easy and maybe it’s even impossible sometimes but that’s okay. You should take the time to recharge and care for yourself.

Last month I set the goal to live on a ridiculously small budget and it caused me a lot of grief and stress so when I found out I’d managed to somehow still have twenty euros left I took it upon myself to irrespobsibly blow it all on a dress I’d been crying over and some make up inspired by Lady Vengeance. I dyed my hair, hung out with myself and watched good movies and stuffed myself with great food.

Self-care is also making a playlist of fabulous babes who realise their babeliness, flaunt it, revel in having fun with music, or Prince singing about his sexually forward girlfriends and RuPaul cheering you on, girl, so that I can play it with friends as not have to listen to their dubstep that sometimes makes me so nervous it makes me wanna vomit, and also just because it’s catchy, good and makes me feel all girly and stuff.

(NOTE: I should trigger warn you because the last song, #24 by The Raveonettes, deals with rape! Here’s the tracklist.)

Caring for yourself is allowing you to eat food so good it makes delicious tears swell up in your eyes, no matter the cost or unhealthiness of it all. It is surrounding yourself with things you love and deserve. Self-care is indulging yourself in things that make you feel good. Self-care is this.

  • That is a super babely outfit and this is probably my favorite blogpost of yours. I love you so much!

    ALSO. I WANT AN EMAIL FROM YOU, S’IL VOUS PLAÎT.

    • UGH WHY HAVEN’T I STILL GOTTEN BACK TO YOU WHY AM I SO LAZY

      I’m starting an e-mail asap but I probably won’t finish it because I ate too much and am super sleepy with satisfaction now.

      You have been such a large inspiration in all of this. You are a goddess and I love you ;__________;

  • Aaah you look beyond great! Things like this post (and Sympathy for Lady Vengeance I MEAN HOW AWESOME DOES SHE LOOK) also makes me want to experiment with makeup again but I wouldn’t even know where to start.

    Anyway, that dress is so perfect!

    • Just mess around with it and don’t be scared! There’s not much to it other than that πŸ˜€

  • omg i love your haircolour! is it kind of like a …. pinky rose light brown??

    • I love it too! It’s just Manic Panic Hot Hot Pink mixed w/ conditioner over my natural hair colour. So happy I am blonde and darker Manic Panic colours work on me even though it fades after like two weeks. I think I’ll dye it ALL OF THE COLOURS because it doesn’t even hurt my hair!

  • Outfit = perfection. Yellow and pink are pretty much the best colours, plus you can never go wrong with a cat eye (urghh, but I’m jealous – I wish I could pull off red eyeshadow).

  • Do you ever read a blog post that is just so genuinely perfect you feel speechless and just want to live in it?

    BECAUSE THAT IS HOW I FEEL RN

  • Oh wow, this is a wonderful post. Just. So. Perfect. Your writing is beautiful and…. I don’t even know how to describe it, it’s so wonderful. YOU are so wonderful!
    And I think those socks may be my dream socks.
