Spring break update

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog.

*There will be mentions of body issues and eating habits in this post*

I didn’t even realize how long of a break I had taken from my blog and fashion Instagram, I needed to focus on other things and take a break from social media.

These pictures are from January I believe, when I had a day off from class and wanted to make sure I got out and took some outfit pictures. Now that I drive I find it easier to look for locations to take pictures in, allowing me to enjoy surroundings I have never seen before.

This was taken outside of a nursing home outside of the city, I parked and took a lot of pictures. I was excited to wear the fanny pack I had bought at urban outfitters, as well as the shirt I had thrifted.

When I look at these pictures, I remind myself the unrealistic expectations I have for myself. I deleted the Instagram app from my phone because all I would see is really thin girls that travel the world and wear amazing clothes. There is absolutely nothing wrong that, but I was (and sometimes still am) striving to have every picture I take be as good as theirs.

Since the start of the year I have been obsessing over my weight, swapping healthy alternatives for the food I love. I end up eating black bean burgers, smoothie bowls and vegan burritos.

I tried to find a good eating style for me, but fell into a hole of self doubt and disgust whenever I looked at myself in the mirror. My confidence has plummeted, even when I eat well and exercise, it feels as though I can never be happy with the way I look.

Spring is starting, which means shorts and crop tops. I love those pieces of clothing, but am not at the point where I feel comfortable enough in my body to wear those yet.

I am going to make it a mission to be kind to my body, to be more aware of what I my body needs to be healthy.

Thank you so much for reading, see you next time.

  1. What beautiful photos. I’m sorry you’ve been struggling with things, I’ve never been good with diets, I have to just try and have things in moderation though it can be hard at times.

  2. Feeling comfortable in your own body takes time, we have these thoughts but take it Day by day and do what you need to do (in moderation) to get to where and how you feel! Your photos are stunning, honestly!

  3. Sorry to hear you’re feeling this way! I struggle massively with hang ups like this too so I can totally relate. You look amazing, even if you can’t see that yourself right now x

  4. So sorry to hear you’ve been feeling like this way! I truly think you’re beautiful and I hope you can shake this feeling…I know it can be easier said than done but we need to remember apps like IG only present a few moments into someone’s life and we have no idea what it’s really like, the act of comparison is a terrible addiction and we need to try harder not too. One thing my greatmama always thought us is to never wish to be in someone else’s shoes because we may see them flying high but we never know whose wings they’re flying on and the day they may experience a crash landing.
    On another note, you look like that cool kid on the block in these pics and the sun is your bestie! You got this Lupe 😀 ❤

  5. Ive learned that diets suck and dont work, for me at least. I never counted my calories. All that doesnt matter. What matters is what makes you happy.
    A diet is restrictive. Even if someone tries going on a “vegan” diet it wont work.
    Just going at ones own pace is enough and also learning to love the body youre given. Its a lot of work and i hope u can get out of that rut ❤
