Ok lets do this!
A little while ago I had a makeover photoshoot done here at my studio, Alison who is one of my amazing Makeup artist’s I’m going to give Rebecca a shout out to cause they are both so Talented ūüôā
Alison has been doing some photography after a conversation we arranged a shoot together I felt SO excited but also¬†really¬†nervous as in the¬†past I have photographed myself or Owen has¬†photographed me so to¬†do this was really scary¬† but this was unknown to Alison that I had to do this.
When I was diagnosed with an¬†Anorexia nervosa I was roughly 19 / 20 I was not in a good place with my life mentally or physically pretty much the whole of my 20’s was rough! my¬†relationship with food and the way I looked and felt was bad I couldn’t look in the mirror without feeling sick, I am thin away, ¬†something I have ¬†really struggled with growing up I was bullied¬†at¬†school I was an easy target skinny, ginger hair, no boobs, ¬†braces and glasses the girl who loved animals and nature¬†and became a vegetarian I got chased by kid with a raw piece of meat any way¬†lets go back, people around me could see me getting thinner and more frail looking
but to me I was fine I had it all under control
until I fainted and got rushed into hospital with horrendous tummy pain. the years that followed this are a little blurry.
I have constantly battled with being underweight clothes not fitting me properly nasty verbal comments¬†about my weight.
Its taken a long time and I’m absolutely fine now¬†regarding the Anorexia I don’t have those thoughts or feelings no more I have been left with physical and mental scares my gut which is another post, and my teeth yep I don’t smile showing my teeth its left me with really bad dental problems¬†I know its something I have to get sorted out.
If you are struggling or you think you might know someone who is PLEASE talk to someone you trust,¬†call your¬†doctor¬†or contact the Samaritans¬†

lots of love
