LilianaΒ created this amazing tag that’s all about self love and body positivity! She tagged me to take part, and I totally forgot until I sawΒ Ella‘s post about it a few days ago! So sorry it took me a while Lil, but let’s get into this tag!!

One feature you love about yourself

I think I’ve mentioned this before, but for a physical feature, I would say my hands. They’re obviously super useful. But also, they just seem delicate and pretty, kind of a weird statement to make about hands, but that’s how I feel about mine πŸ˜€

One feature you wish/wished you could change that you are trying to accept or have accepted?

My teeth. They’re fairly even, but some are crowded. However they’re still symmetrical funnily enough, just two are slightly more forward than everything else. For the longest time, I was self conscious of it. But as time went on, I grew to accept it. Now, it’s just my smile, crazy teeth and all.

Have you ever thought of getting surgery to change you imperfections?

I’ve considered laser eye surgery, but the more I learn about it, the less eager I am. But I would love to correct my vision. That’s about the only surgery I would consider doing.

One of your main role models for body positivity?

Honestly, I don’t know. I don’t know if I have a role model specifically for body positivity. In general, I look up to Amy Poehler and Emma Watson for general empowerment and positivity πŸ™‚

Has a family member or friend ever put you down about your physical appearance? If so what for?

Not really a family member of friend. I do remember in middle/high school, comments that bugged me, but they were said by randoms around that I didn’t really have a personal relationship with. I remember they were related to acne, as I had really bad skin in middle school. I got the obligatory comments about my glasses. I got called ‘shorty’ a lot, which is more of a fact than a snarky comment.

Something you love about your fashion sense or style?

It’s comfortable? I don’t know, I tend to wear what I want. If it’s comfortable and makes me feel good, then I’ll wear it.

Why is your body a great place to be?

I mean, it could be better. I still mean to look after it better and commit to a healthier lifestyle, or at least work out more. But in general, it’s a great place to be cause I’m happy in it and I’m taking (fairly) good care of it.

Lil also added in a bit at the bottom where she asks to include “photo of yourself when you felt the most confident”. I’ve chosen the photo of me floating in a pool in Taveuni during my honeymoon. Why this one? Well, it was the first time I wore a two piece, and also I just love this photo πŸ˜€

As for nominations, I like to open it up to everyone. These questions are great to reflect on and even if you don’t make a post about it, I encourage you to think on these questions πŸ™‚

  1. This looks like a fun tag to try out! Love your last photo, looks so relaxing.

    1. Thanks Jordyn! You should give it a go πŸ™‚
      And yes, I love that last photo! It was so relaxing and nice πŸ™‚

  2. Congratulations on your award! I love how you worked your favourite feature in WITH a picture that included your wedding ring ;):) Acne was the worst for me when I was a teen and now that I am an adult it only flares up once a month lol πŸ™‚ I’m with you on the “comfortable” fashion sense. Life’s too short to be uncomfortable πŸ™‚

    1. Haha πŸ˜‚ I always try to include it in somehow πŸ˜‰
      Acne is so rude, like we’re going through enough , why does our skin need to do that πŸ˜‚ I get occasional bursts too, but nowhere as extreme when I was younger luckily.
      Comfortable fashion is the best πŸ˜€

      1. You did get it in and so nonchalantly too πŸ˜‰ well done πŸ˜‰

  3. I know what you mean about laser eye surgery. I’d like it I think but like you the more I think and read about it the more happy I feel with glasses πŸ˜‚

    1. Right?? It’s a good idea in theory, but then you think about it too much and it’s just scary πŸ˜‚

      1. I know! And it’s not guaranteed if I read correctly? It’s not necessarily a lifetime correction

  4. This is a wonderful tag, I loved the questions and your answers to them. Great post Angela!πŸ˜€

    1. Thanks Ari!! πŸ˜€

  5. I always go back and forth about the thought of getting laser eye surgery, part of me loves my glasses but the other part of me knows what a hassle they are, not to mention expensive if you needed new frames or contacts. And how rude for people to make comments about acne, like pfft, thats such a natural and normal occurrence- heck I bet those people that made comments to you have had pimples before too so they should just shush! lol Such a good love yourself tag!!

    xo, JJ

    1. I’m the same with my glasses and contacts, I’m attached to them, but they’re also a hassle πŸ˜‚
      Middle schoolers can be mean for no apparent reason, also they’re just blunt. What a weird time πŸ˜‚ We all have to go through the awkward skin stage, it’s sad that some people feel the need to point it out and be rude. We know it’s there, we’re doing our best to clear it up 🀷
      I do love this tag though! It was so fun to answer πŸ˜€

  6. I actually quite hate my hands. They are short and stubby and I’ve got too short nail beds. Your hands, on the other hands, are the hands of angels! I also have always been self-conscious about my teeth. I have a large gap that some few people tell me to keep, but I’ve gone to the dentist for braces before, just not money I want to spend right now. Are you a regular two-piece bathing suit wearer now?

    1. You have worker hands then πŸ˜„
      My hands can’t do them well, nails chip and I drop things, so now I avoid it mostly πŸ˜‚
      I mostly wear a tankini. So long top rather than bikini top. I find it comfier. I’m trying to work up the nerve to wear a bikini top out again. Maybe in summer πŸ™‚

      1. You’ve got this young Padawan

  7. Absolutely loved this post! Honestly, you have such lovely hands?! Is that weird?! Haha! Perfect photo to include those gorgeous rings too! xx

    1. Thanks Ella! πŸ˜„ I’ve always liked my hands, the rings are an added bonus to get to show πŸ˜‚ it does seem like a weird feature to be proud of, and to get compliments on πŸ˜‚

  8. Aaw love this post. So uplifting😊 it’s always randoms that don’t matter that criticize your looks isn’t it. You look lovely as you are x

    1. Thanks Dannii! It is weird when randoms feel the need to comment and criticise your appearance. What do they get out of it? πŸ˜₯πŸ˜₯

      1. They’re insecure themselves probably so want you to feel bad tooπŸ˜‚ Losers haha xx

  9. you do have lovely hands 😊 & that pool looks absolutely stunning! love this tag

    1. Thanks Jamie πŸ˜„
      That infinity pool was amazing! It was the best part of the resort we were at πŸ˜‚
      This is definitely a cool tag! Feel free to take part if you want πŸ™‚

      1. oh I can imagine! that view πŸ™ŒπŸ» & thanks girl!

  10. Your hands are indeed very lovely! <3 this is such a fun tag!

    1. Thank you! πŸ™‚ <3

  11. This tag looks interesting, I might end up doing it myself!

    1. It’s really fun! Give it a go Chanelle πŸ˜„

      1. πŸ˜€

  12. I’ve seen a few vlogs on YouTube of the laser eye surgery and it looks terrifying! But I’d also love to get it done haha!

    1. I remember you mentioning it before. While it does terrify me, the appeal of not needing glasses or contacts is very great πŸ˜‚

      1. Hahaha same!!!

  13. This is an amazing tag idea! and I love your smile!

    1. Thank you so much πŸ™‚

  14. Thanks for doing the tag and not to sound weird but you do have very nice hands haha. The photo at the end is absolutely gorgeous 😊 xxx

    1. Haha, thanks Lil! I do think my hands are quite nice, glad to see people agree πŸ˜‚

  15. […] I haven’t done a tag post in a while and I really liked the prompts! I saw this this tag on Angela’s and Ella’s blogs (which you should check out because they are both lovely) and I was […]
