" You need 3 more inches from hip to knee, and 3 more inches from knee to ankle, then you’d be perfect " ( at modeling agency in nyc)
" we need to lighten your hair, you’re too brunette " (for a print ad)
" wear only beige lipstick, because only mick jagger can get away with full lips like that " ( as a teenager at a makeup counter)
" you need to loose 15 pounds , i mean, after all, you are a size 4.” (a designer)
Imagine if I listened?
Do you know how many notes I receive here on Tumblr, from women who say that they don’t feel beautiful?
Do you know how many times during the course of a day I hear or see women being extremely and unfairly judgmental with themselves?
Do you know how many women are going under a scalpel or injecting poison into their faces in the name of beauty?
The fashion industry is not the only one to blame today..
It’s society as a whole…and add to that 24/7 media bombardment…and the internet is guilty too.
It’s called subliminal advertising..and it’s done everyday…in order to sell a product.
And isn’t it further interesting, that for every ’ flaw ’ there just happens to be a product that will miraculously ‘cure it’ ?
That type of advertising is obviously working in an industry that is worth multi billions of dollars.
Let’s talk about acceptance and loving you.
I’m not saying to throw out your makeup or fashion magazine or stop doing leg lifts.
I am saying that you need to re-set your mind’s eye and not be so critical of yourself…and know that sometimes an industry will say anything to get you to buy their product..even if its done in a very mean way.
That beauty starts within.
You are worth far more than the sum of your parts.
and one more little thing…
develop some rhino hide along the way…it’s impenetrable.
“Why am I being wanded?” Kelly asked.

“Just stand still,” the man with the metal detector ordered.
“I am standing still,” Kelly said. “What, does that thing not work when I’m talking? It gets distracted? It’s a metal detector with ADD?”
“Jesus Christ, Kels, just let him wand you,” Nick said in a long-suffering voice. He was rubbing his eyes.
“I usually get dinner first. No, that’s a lie.”
It doesn’t sound “silly” at all, dear anon! :)) You need to install KMPlayer and Photoshop. I can make a gif tutorial if you want, or you can use this one: http://itsfuuh.tumblr.com/tutorial (this is one of the best tutorials for beginners, imho).
Also, you can find lots of good tutorials here.
Hope this helped :))

*whispers* You all are very, very bad at NOT ANNOUNCING that B&C is now available for download. Remember that giant all-caps bolded sentence in the middle of your notification email stating we were notifying everyone in small batches so as not to crash our server and to PLEASE NOT SAY ANYTHING UNTIL WE’D FINISHED? Grrr :-p
Well but now we’ve finished so hopefully we’ll stay crash-free. But shhh! from now on or next time we won’t be able to release the book early!
It’s my birthday today and I got my ebook - best present ever!!!! Thank you to Abi and Riptide - love you!!!!
