The L'Oreal foundation powders gives enough coverage to block any oils without hiding my freckles. I feel like my freckles are a big part of who I am so I do not want to cover them up. With out my L'Oreal powder foundation I would be a glowing head: and not in a good way!
I have completely accepted that I am very white! I love it because it is me, and that is how God made me, and I am beautifully made in His image, and so are you!
That being said I am from Scottsdale, AZ where I used to go to the pool almost everyday! Did I tan? Nope! Did I get freckles? I sure did! I love my freckles: they are a little part of what makes me, me! I love when someone comes up to me and says, "did you know freckles are little angel kisses!?"
One day my friends my friends and I were" laying out" by the pool. Notice I call it laying out and not tanning because I don't tan! I need to tell you I always wear a tankini swimming suit not because I am not confident in my own skin just because I want to be modest. So on this particular day my friends and I were going to try to tan our bellies. We laid out there in the Arizona sun, in the afternoon for three hours! My friends were getting a nice tanning glow, I did not get so much as a freckle! This is actually when we started calling it "laying out." Bring really white is just who I am and I have fully embrased it.
I do like to add color to my to make it warmer by using makeup.
I had a sweet baby girl eight months ago. My body is still trying to get in shape. I was so sick during my pregnancy (if you are interested in my pregnancy story I wrote a blog all about it: Toxemia: My Pregnancy Story) that after I had her I weighed 2lbs lighter then I did before I was pregnant. However, during my pregnancy I started some bad eating habits. I ate whatever I could keep down which happened to be fries foods. Not my proudest moment but I had to eat something. Well through the last eight months I have tries really hard to keep a clean diet which is hard because I am trying to brake the habits I made. I have actually gained weight since I had her.
Plus, I feel like my hormones add a lot to my weight either gaining or loosing and I think they are still trying to work themselves out.
This is a picture I took yesterday. I actually bought these pants two days ago because I needed some new pants that I could feel good in.
I am happy with my body right now, but I do still want to get in a good work out regimen so I feel even better!
I think I am going to start doing baby yoga poses. I will try to do a post on them soon. In the mean time I encourage you mamas to appreciate your body because it is beautiful and it has been through a lot and you deserve to feel good about yourselves! I will be right there with you doing the same!
