If I've gotten an expensive bag or ring for my birthday, it's not a way of bragging and saying "Look what I have that you'll never have". You don't have to wear "exactly" what I wear. You don't even have to really like fashion! You might just like the photos I post. Whatever you like, the posts I make about what I wear or what I've bought are supposed to give you ideas - whether you can buy a thousand of the items I have, or never will be able to afford that exact piece. It's supposed to inspire you in your own style and in the places you shop.
I'm also thinking about doing makeup posts later on. However, please don't feel like you're less than if you don't like to wear makeup. Makeup is supposed to accentuate what you have. It's not supposed to create a "Lydia-like" mask. I like wearing makeup because it makes me feel more girly and put together. But that's not to say that I'm suggesting you will only look pretty if you wear it or you will only attract boys if you wear a specific lipstick. I'm not suggesting you "sexualize" yourself so others will like you. You're beautiful with and without makeup. If you like yourself better without it, please by all means never wear it!
Makeup and fashion, for me, is fun. It's a creative outlet. It's a way of piecing different items together to create a pretty outfit, or using different eye shadows in pretty colors because it's fun. I know I have readers from all over the world with all sorts of socio-economic backgrounds and esteem issues. Please realize my beauty posts are for fun, and something you should use to make yourself feel confident - not to make you feel bad about yourself. Please remember that life on this earth is not all about material things or about being the hottest person around. You're a wonderful, perfect human being no matter what you are wearing or what your face looks like.
