Yes, I Am A Girl, But...There is so much pressure to be thinner, prettier, better, better, best! I am not thin, or even pretty for that matter. Having little fashion sense my daily wear is usually jeans and t-shirts. I'm not much to look at, being very overweight, with small breasts, and thin, mousy brown hair leaves most people wondering if I am a dyke.
Flipping through the pages in magazines or through the channels on tv and all I see is gorgeous girly girls. They look so put together and confident. Their shoes and accessories match their outfit to a tee. Hair that is full and smartly styled.
Helena Rubinstein once said, "There are no ugly women, just lazy ones".
I've also heard, "There are no ugly women, just poor ones".
They both hold a lot of truth in my world. Not that I am lazy as much as I don't have a clue where to begin. Make up and hair styles seem so time consuming and that's hard with a two year old running around.
Sometimes I see women who are larger then me and think, "that's a pretty jazzy outfit she has on". Typically I figure it looks nice on her mostly because she has larger breast then me and shrug it off.
I'd love to feel like a woman for once!
