#TheGlowUp

2010-2017
When I originally posted this photo on my Insta-story, I was flooded with messages like 'OH MY GOD' and 'WTF' and 'THAT IS NOT YOU?!?!' Oh, and my personal favourite- 'What's the award for, Most Improved?' (Not gonna lie, it really made me laugh!) Well, guys, it really is me! (But thanks for all those massive confidence boosts.......! Hmm.)

I found the photo on the left because I was seeing people all over Twitter posting their #GLOWUP photos, so I dug deep into my old Facebook photos and found this one of me back in LA. EVERYTHING about the photo makes me shudder- the orange arms and fingernails, the Jesus bracelet (why were we all so obsessed with those?!) the face that looks like I have swallowed two baby elephants, the birds nest on my head, the obvious absence of both my eyebrows, and the most worrying part- WHERE ARE MY LIPS?! They look like a pair of anchovies, which isn't helped by that horrendous chalk-pink Barry M lipstick that we all obsessed over, even though it made our teeth look green. 

The photo on the right was taken about two weeks ago. And clearly a LOT has changed. I get asked on Twitter and Instagram all the time about the work I've had done, so here goes: I've had my lips plumped with about 4ml of filler (give or take...LOL) I've gone blonde, had teeth whitening, I've had a nose job, had my eyebrows microbladed, I've a convert to semi-permanant eyelashes, I've learnt how to apply make-up and I've lost weight... Just a few things then!

This isn't going to be a preachy-'love yourself for who you are'-'you are unique don't ever change'- kinda blog post, because I honestly believe if you aren't happy with something- change it! If I didn't get my nose done when I was 18 I would have spent the last 6 (nearly 7- yikes!) years unhappy with the way I looked. And this had a direct effect on my confidence, which had a knock-on effect to my social skills and how much I saw my friends, acted around boys, etc. So even still to this day I whole-heartedly say that it was the best decision I ever made. And yes, before you ask, my parents DID pay for it. Not because I'm spoilt, but because they want me to be happy. 

Oh God, this has turned a bit preachy hasn't it?!?! Would you get any work done? Or have you? Leave a comment below if you want any more lifestyle/surgery posts!
