the most inconvenient time, such as when there's nowhere for me to jot my ideas down. This morning, while in the shower, I reflected back on what I've learned about health, beauty, blogging, and life in the past fifteen years. Hence, the idea for this post about ten things I wish I knew when...

Apparently she's just like everyone else, and had a bit of an ugly phase when she was 15. Rosie claims she wasn't always this beautiful: "I was a bit of an Ugly Betty when I was 15," she says. There she was, a teenager on a farm in Devon, England, dreaming of the glamorous life in London,...

The only regret I have is when I look at something I wore when I was very young and it obviously looks like it belonged to someone else. But, like all of us do eventually, she's recovered from her embarrassing moments and seems to have a good look going on these days. I think it's quite...

When I was a child, I took days, weeks, months, to get to know you. I was hesitant. A bit modest. A bit self-conscious. I wasn't first in line because I wasn't quick enough. I wasn't chosen first because I wasn't heard above the crowd. When I was a child, I wasn't as bold...as...

I do know I'm uncomfortable pretending, on a blog that is, on a certain level, about appearance, and my personal ~journey~ with it, that I can keep up with a set of principles developed when I was younger and different and 12 years old. But I mentioned earlier my bullshit filter, and I think...

And I actually think I look better now than I did when I was 24, so I'm very comfortable with myself." I think she's right about being more beautiful. I know a lot of people can't really stand her, but I think she's beautiful, and even more so over the last couple years!

My parents caught me getting up to no good when I was 15. I'd been on holiday in Auckland for the Millenium New Year's Eve and I made the mistake of committing the offense in full view of one of their friends. A couple of weeks later when I was back in Christchurch, that friend decided it...

When I was a kid I loved overalls - so much so that I wore them to the exclusion of all else. I had a raft of crayola-coloured overalls (short, long, denim, chinos, patterned) that I wore every day, day in day out, for about 2 years. I also had a page boy hair cut and a fierce love of pokemon...

‘I never felt more beautiful than when I was pregnant,' Amy said. ‘Because it wasn't about me. ‘The whole purpose of my body was no longer to fit into a sample size. It was to nurture another being. So I always felt great, no matter what I was wearing.' Rest of the article plus three...

When I was a kid, my dad took me out to our front yard and showed me the constellation of the stars. He's an engineer and he loves to teach me math, science and even though I ended up loving social studies more, I will never forget the night we were out and the time he spent with me. Years...
