My Perfect Imperfections

Tuesday, August 19, 2014
My Perfect Imperfections is a tag that I remember going around quite a lot on YouTube a few months ago. It's a pretty short tag, but the reason I like it so much is that I think it attempts to promote this idea that everyone has things they don't like about their physical appearances, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't appreciate the things you think are beautiful about yourself too.

The premise of the tag is pretty simple: the idea is to talk about three things you like about yourself, and three things you don't. I want to end this post on a positive note, so let's start with my "imperfections", shall we?

My thighs I've always thought that my thighs are somewhat big - not horrendously so, but I don't know, I just kind of find them a bit on the larger side. I guess I'm more self-conscious about this than other people might be because I'm super short so having large thighs just makes my legs seem stunted.

My stomach I think everyone is insecure about their stomach. I'm not huge on exercise (though I am trying to change that) so I have this little fat pouch on my stomach that never goes away and sometimes makes me look like I have a muffin top. I get really insecure about it sometimes, especially when I wear bathing suits around my super fit, super thin friends, but for the most part I don't hate it, I'm just a little shy about it.

My eyebrows This might seem a little contradictory since I'm always going on about my brows, but with this item I mean I dislike my brows naturally, without makeup. I have very light, sparse brows, so if I don't fill them in, it kind of looks like I don't have any and I hate the way that that looks. I love my brows when I'm able to fill them in, but when I can't, I worry.

Now on to some more optimistic things! Three of the things I love about myself, coming right up.

My height Some people might think this is kind of weird, but I actually love the fact that I'm short. Sure, there are times when I wish I was a little taller - when I can't reach a high shelf on my own, for example - but for the most part I think being short really suits my personality and I love making fun of myself with regards to my height. I think it's a big part of what makes me, me, and I wouldn't change it for anything.

My eyes I've been told from a young age that I have quite large eyes for an Asian girl - and I've got a double eyelid, which is ever so coveted among monolidded Asian women. But I just like my eyes because they make me look a little different and more mixed race - maybe not to everyone, but I do often get asked if I'm half Caucasian (which I'm not, for the record). I just think my eyes are really pretty, and that might sound vain, but I really do.

My skin I love my skin and I love to take care of it. My skin wasn't always very nice though; I suffered with acne for many years until I went on Accutane last year for six months, and it did wonders for me. It completely cleared my skin and ever since I don't get the same horrible breakouts that I used to. My skin also leans towards the oily side so it looks quite glowy usually, and I just think it looks pretty great with or without makeup.

Aaand that's all for now! Tell me, what's your favorite feature?

    Great post ! You are definitely stunning and it was nice to hear some things you love about yourself because we don't often compliment ourselves out loud do we !?
