‘Tis the season for lingerie and long wigs and oh what a season it is.

Halloween is the one night in the year when racoon eyes are the goal and wearing, what my dad would call, “half an outfit” is socially acceptable.

Halloween is all about pretending to be someone you’re not. When you were little, Halloween gave you the opportunity to be the Disney princess you always dreamed you’d be or maybe you wanted to see what life felt like on the dark side and fill the shoes of a blood sucking vampire for the night – the beauty about halloween is it lets you be whatever you want to be. So if you struggle with body confidence or self love than why not be your sexy alter ego for the night? Put on a wig, slip into some sexy lingerie and adopt the attitude of a sexier version of yourself. It gives you the chance to test the waters, to explore a version of yourself you may want to be without having to commit to it – if you want black hair but aren’t confident enough to take the plunge then why not wear a black wig for halloween, if you don’t get the reactions you were hoping for you can put it aside after the night and close that door. If you’ve been feeling down in yourself, you got sucked in by all the beautiful airbrushed Instagram beauties and now you’re saving your pennies for liposuction so you can get Kim K’s waist, then Halloween could be the pick-me-up you needed. It’s an opportunity for self love, staring yourself in the mirror you’ll see a Victoria Secret Angel version of yourself – you will be the sex symbol you’re usually in awe of. You’ll feel how you look: sexy. And when you look sexy, confidence will come naturally.

And yes, of course, there’s the haters who will label you a slut and such, but the reality is no matter what you do in life there will always be people against you. We all must accept the fact that no matter how much we may want to, controlling other people’s thoughts and actions is ultimately out of our control. All we can do is control our own. So you must make the choice; Do you live your life a certain way to get the approval of certain people? Do you live your life the way that makes you happy and gains YOUR OWN approval? Regardless of what decision you make, hate is inevitable.  Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

controversial.

contovers. girl

 

The reason I picked this name is simple really. I’m controversial. I dress different. I wear different makeup. I think differently. I’m different to your average girl. And for a long time I thought of this as a burden, it constantly left me with having to make decisions about myself-  should I dress how I wanna dress and just brush off the criticism? Or should I dress like the other girls and fit in? And to be honest I’ve done a bit of both. I’m not one to put people in boxes, but for the sake of this argument, generally people reject those who don’t follow social norms, it’s like a human default programmed into us. I mean if you see a girl walking down the street in head-to-toe sequins and rainbows, you’re gonna stop and stare. Here’s where the difference comes in: some people will look at this girl in awe of her creativity and think you go-girl, whereas others will be dialling for the men in white coats to come take the lunatic, who dared to be different, away. But why is this? What’s so bad about someone wanting to stand out from the crowd? Why is it acceptable for people to have different tastes in food but it’s a big ordeal when someone wants to wear all black or be painted in tattoos? They’re both conflicts of interest but then what makes one different from the other? Of course everyone is entitled to their own opinion but everyone is also entitled to self expression. For me, personally, I feel most comfortably expressed in bright colours but that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate someone decked out in all black because to me that signifies they’re happiest represented by black, black gives them the same feeling bright colours give me, so how could I hate on that?

Self-expression is everything. It’s one of the only free things in life that can set you soul on fire. It took me a long time to feel comfortable in being myself but I now realise when you are true to yourself you will be happier in yourself and attract those who add to that happiness.

..And so the reason I’m starting this blog is because I want to add colour to people’s lives, particularly those who are having a tough time finding themselves because I know it would have been a lot easier for me having someone to tell me all of this. Self-expression is the theme of my blog, through: words, clothes, makeup, music. Everything.
