Beauty: A Personal Response

I've spent all day doing my photography project on the 'Interpretation Of Beauty'. It's a really good topic and I've had such fun taking photos of the beauty of nature and light over the last few weeks. For the first page, we have to write a personal response of the meaning of beauty and what it means to us. I thought it would be nice to share it with you on here.

'Beauty is a huge part of my life. Growing up, I was bullied for being the ‘odd one out’. Red hair, freckles and extra weight, I wasn’t exactly ‘fit’ for societies perception of beauty. In other words, the complete opposite of me: blonde, tiny and flawless. In fact, every time I was knocked gave me every more reason to stand up and fight back. I started to learn to love myself, and to understand beauty through the eyes of my loved ones. Their kind words and support picked me back up. Beauty is something we need to stop fighting, and to start appreciating in whatever shape or form. Beauty has also inspired me personally to pursue as a career in two aspects. Either through Journalism and writing or having my own online website or boutique.'

I hope you liked this more personal post from me today - Let me know what you think. Oh and about the online store... Keep your eyes pealed for something verrrryy exciting in the next few weeks ;)
