Hi. I’m Steph. I like to take men out for a massive plate of BBQ ribs on a first date. I judge them according to how many and how aggressively they consume them. Whoever defeats me in this porcine endeavour shall become my warrior husband. My Spartacus. I’ll set nations ablaze at his feet just to watch the flames dance in his eyes. Our love will be beautiful in its violence as a tempest hits the Bering Strait and should it die, it’ll die as it began; with a mound of bones between us. x I have big cheeks and big eyes which makes me incredibly cute, so that’s a bit of a bonus isn’t it? Get in on the ground floor, because I’m awesome. 😌

AD 🦷 Me and my teeth have been on such a journey, from getting braces, to having the gap between my front teeth closed, and even reconstructive procedures. My smile has always been a huge component when it comes to my confidence and how I feel about myself, as I used to be so ashamed of my smile! Switching from a manual brush to an @Oralb_uk electric toothbrush makes me feel like I'm not missing anything when I brush, and it's helped tremendously with whitening my smile, thus improving my confidence and I absolutely could never see myself going back! 📸 - @fordtography #ElectricToothbrush #ChangeOneThing

This year has been all about making moves (hence the chessboard? See the correlation? Jesus my MIND🤯) and working as hard as possible to keep the freelance life running peacefully and I’m happy to say that lately, it’s been going rather well? I think back to early May when I was ready to give everything up because I literally had nothing, but my little corner of the internet is my safe space: I turn to writing and creating content when I’m feeling at my lowest. I did it during my breakup a couple years ago, then when I was unemployed and again this year. I really love what I do, and I’m happy to have...I guess found my calling? I never thought I would end up working for myself by the age of 30 and I acknowledge it’s one hell of a privilege. Here’s to the next 5-10 years anyway. Also, scroll to the third pic for a surprise. 😂 • • • 📸 - @fordtography Dress - @prettylittlething Shoes - @marksandspencer (gifted) #mymarks #plt #prettylittlething #chess #kneegang #squatgang #mykneeswerehurting #ikid #icanstilldropitlowlikethekids #psblogger #goldenconfidence #andigetdressed

AD 📸 Now that I’m all self employed and stuff, I have more time to do things I love, and one of the things I’m rediscovering again is photography - especially shooting videos and photos on the go, editing and uploading them there and then. ‘Tis the beauty of modern technology, right? With the launch of @vodafoneUK’s new 5G network alongside the launch of their new unlimited data plans, I now have the freedom to edit and upload on the go without worrying about my data being used up. TO FREEDOM! *horns*. Here’s to living life without limits - we love to see it! #BeUnlimited #5G

Lol I stared at this pic for approximately 32 minutes before hitting send, as it’s the first time I’ve ever worn an outfit without a bra. When I talk about body confidence and body image, I tend to talk about most areas of my body with the exception of my boobs because tbh - I’ve never really given them much thought before. I accepted years ago that they will never be perky and after years of doing multiple chest exercises and looking up breast uplift procedures, I decided to just say ‘fuck it’ and learn how to love them, like the rest of my body. Yes I do have the odd day where I wish they could be a bit fuller so I can feel nicer about wearing strapless dresses but meh; they are healthy and that’s the most we can ask for, right? Shoutout to those with two, shoutout to those with one, shoutout to those with none at all. Shoutout to those with boobs of different sizes, shoutout to those who have big boobs, small boobs, perky or saggy. They all matter. At the end of the day, their purpose is not for the objectification and viewership of men or women, it’s to feed children. 🤷🏽‍♀️ As small of an act taking this pic is, wearing this gorgeous dress without a bra feels like a transformative expression of self love, and I hope it’s just the beginning. 🔥 (also shoutout to the burn scar on my torso as the result of using curling tongs. Don’t ask me why they were in that area 😂) ____ 📸 - @fordtography

AD | Here’s the thing; I’ve been lucky enough to not have suffered that much with things such as blemishes and spots in my youth (insert your groans of disgust here) BUT, in my adult life I’m constantly battling the odd breakout due to stress or hormones, as well as having hyperpigmentation around my mouth - that always used to be a bit of a dimmer on my confidence. Since hopping aboard the self-love train however, I’m beginning to accept it, and love myself despite the occasional breakout or discolouration. Something I’m now focusing on to combat these problems is taking steps to use cleaner/safer products to help clear up my skin blemishes, without damaging my skin. Here’s where @renskincare come into play: I’m going to be trying out the new Clearcalm Non-Drying Spot Treatment which focuses on helping to reduce redness and spot size, without leaving your skin feeling flaky and dry. It includes ingredients such as Willow Bark which aids in skin renewal, Maritime Pine and Thyme Complex which help to sooth redness and scarring and prebiotic chlorella which helps rebalance healthy bacteria. Another great thing about this product is that the packaging is fully recyclable, with the cap being made from 100% recycled plastic and the tube 50% recycled plastic. Minimising our spot woes and saving the planet? Sign me up! I’ll be trying out the spot treatment over the next couple of weeks and letting you guys know how it goes! #CleanToSkin #CleanToPlanet #ClearCalm

I’ve been trying to get onto my ‘Hot Girl Summer’ mode this season seeing as that’s what we’re doing this days: having fun, socialising, dating to your hearts’ content and being confident in everything you do, which is why I’ve been using @Bumble to help not only build my confidence back up after a disastrous couple of years, but to also get back into the experience of dating, which - at the moment - seems to be going well, albeit early days. 🌚 Because it’s not like the movies, friends: finding the right person can take time, and there’s something about making the first move that makes the whole thing a bit empowering; having that choice to talk to - or not talk to - whoever we want. Making the first move can be tough, tell me about it! But I’ve found that the more random you are with your opening line, the better chances you may get - I myself love to open with a good Dad joke if I can. Do you have a Bumble success story, let me know below! #BumblePartner #ad

Isn’t it annoying when people feel like they have give unsolicited opinions on your face and body. To them, think it’s being helpful, but it’s rude AF at the very least. “Give is a smile!”, “If the wind changes, you’ll stay that way”, “stop frowning!”. I’m always being told that I’m frowning or upset by strangers, but the GAG is that my eyes and lips naturally point downwards; something that is literally out of my control. 😂😂 I wish we could go around giving compliments and making people feel good, instead of feeling self conscious and rubbish. In fact yes. Let’s start doing that. I challenge you all this week to pay a compliment to a random stranger. It can be anything from their dress sense, to a book they are reading, to their hair or makeup. Let’s be nice! _____ Dress - @asos 📸 - @fordtography

I feel really...good. And it’s not often I get to say that really. With the exception of the whole ‘forever alone/nobody wants me/I’m going to die alone’ thing, which is still very much a sad, horrible heartbreaking thing, for the most part I’ve found that since turning 30, I’ve stopped giving a damn about stuff, you know? I’ve been wearing neutrals a lot more lately (which I never used to), I now know how to apply highlighter properly, I’m learning how to say ‘no’ more often, I have a stack of 15 books that I’m looking forward to getting through, work is going great, I’ve realised that I’m actually a very very funny individual after years of crafting my wonderful personality due to being ugly as a teenager/early adult and I just feel quite comfortable and at peace in my own skin and body right now. For most of my life, I saw being darker skinned and fat as a hindrance, because it was how I was taught to think by the media and society but now? Wouldn’t change it for the world tbh (although if I were offered a free BBL, I would strongly consider because I want to learn how to twerk with GUSTO ya know?!)

Wowowowow can’t believe I used to bleach this skin. I can’t believe I used to think less of myself because of the shade of my melanin. Can’t believe I thought myself as less beautiful because I was darker (even though the media and social conditioning have a lot to play in this too). Can’t believe it tried to bleach out my natural SPF. Can you even imagine? What a wow.

It’s crazy to look back and think that back in the day, I would cover my arms in the chunkiest of sweaters and cardigans for fear of people seeing my stretch marks and big arms/shoulders. I used to absolutely DREAD summer and would risk heatstroke in order to not be stared or laughed at. I used to envy white women and their stretch marks because you can barely see the silvery swirls as it blends into their skin. I detested the fact that my yellow marks were such a stark contrast to my brown skin, and tried everything from shea butter, to skin tattooing (which i wouldn’t recommend) to having carbon dioxide injected under the skin to a bid to remove them. • • • Fast forward to 6 years later and a lot of the time, I forget that the marks are even there. Being in a community that celebrated marks that looked like mine rapidly changed my way of thinking, and these days, I try to show them off as much as I can. During this shoot, I remember @fordtography saying ‘I’ll shoot from this angle because I know you like having your stretch marks on show’ and I didn’t respond at the time, but inside it made me feel so happy! I say all this to say, don’t let a bit of stretched skin (which EVERYBODY has) stop you from living your best life, especially in Summer. I’m not a fan of the whole ‘tiger stripes’ analogy anymore because I find it a bit corny 😂😂 but see your marks and blemishes as a work of art, specifically unique to you. No one on earth will ever be as unique as you - isn’t that wild?!

Ad | We love an environmentally sustainable, vegan brand! @shayandbluelondon are a luxe perfumery who create some of the most gorgeous, powerful and purest scents I’ve ever come across. You know when you buy a perfume and it smells fruity, but you can also smell the base/alcohol etc? With Shay and Blue, it literally smells like the fruit. With the Blood Orange fragrance, it’s like they squeezed fresh oranges and bottled them up. The scent is SO pure. The packaging is also made to be seen on dressing tables across the country too.

This was my first ever fashion/full length photo and blog post. 2014 and I had just begun my self-love journey I believe. As you can see, I look rather sad, eyes down because I hated how pig-like my face looks, i’m wearing TIGHTS which I never normally do, and also look nervous because I was taking a full length pic of my whole body for the first time. The after swipe is 6 years later. The journey to self love isn’t just a quick 1-2 month fix. It’s a non-linear journey that takes time, tears, doubt, patience and a whole lotta love. You’ll get there, I promise.

A gentle reminder that you do not owe society thinness. When it comes to your physical being, you owe nobody anything, and you absolutely should never apologise on behalf of your body. Your body isn’t an error. Being fat isn’t an error. Having fat isn’t an error. Society’s discriminatory way of looking as fatness is. When we see chubby animals, we react with coos and awws, yet with our fellow humans, it’s another story. That’s how you know human beings are mad and has nobody to tell them. 😂 Live your best life pls. 📸 - @fordtography #fatacceptance #bodyconfidence #selflove #goldenconfidence
