Hi loves. Today I am getting a bit intimate and personal with you all. I was inspired by the Love Your Lines campaign created by 2 lovely queens, Alex Elle and Erika Layne. If you are unfamiliar with this worldwide campaign I would suggest you follow them on Tumblr and Instagram. They have truly touched my heart and inspired me. They are embracing every part of the female body. All of the flaws and all of the imperfections. I decided to make this post to embrace my skin. In no way is this post to flaunt off my body. I am doing this to share what I try so hard to hide everyday.

Since the start of middle school my skin began to change. I first noticed my lines on my knees. I thought they were so ugly. I never wore shorts or skirts in the summer and spring. And when I did, I was constantly made fun of. People called me hurtful names like "pregnant knees" and "alligator legs". I would always stare in the mirror and pretend like they weren't there and wish that one day they would somehow just disappear. It wasn't until my senior year in high school when I finally began to embrace my lines. I remember going to church one day and the Pastor said something that really spoke to me. He said, "God makes us all different for a reason, if we were all the same there would be no fun in living." Since that day, I decided that my lines were not flaws, but a distinctive and unique part of me. I am still very mindful of them and I am not yet completely comfortable with my body but I am learning to love the skin I am in. 

To be clear, I have always been tall and lean. My doctors have told me that these lines formed due to a drastic growth spurt. Today I weigh 111lbs and I am 5'7.5. I hope this post touches someone out there who may be going through something with their body or having trouble with self love. Know that you are not alone.

Love yours!

    1. Thanks Paris :) it took a lot for me to post this! <3

  2. Hi LOVE! I was surprised to find someone with similar skin insecurities. I've always been tiny [ 5'3 95lbs] mind you I'm now 26 years young and have never weighed more than 97lbs. So I was very surprised when I got stretch marks all over my buttocks, outer thighs, behind my legs all the way to my calf, and two stretchies above my elbows. I disliked my body for so long that I too stopped wearing clothes that revealed them- no more cute short shorts, dresses, And bathing suits. But after graduating from college I realized that I don't want to spend my life hidden. So what if I can't find a cute Asian bf that wouldn't be ashamed of me? I wanted to be happy. So come my friend's parents 25th year wedding, I decided to wear a short dress and show the world my stretch marks. I was completely terrified of hearing negative comments that day, but luckily I didn't receive any except for the typical " wow, you look like a Barbie doll." I was so happy and enjoyed my body for the first time in 24 years. After that risk, I wear skirts, short dresses, rompers and maybe soon a two piece bikini!! I can't tell you enough how good it feels to tell the world to eff itself and be happy. I hope you will someday find the same courage as I did, preferably sooner than later 😊. Sorry for the long message, you just made me so proud! Girl power!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️
