    This post really speaks to me. I would honestly love to get nose fillers like Lydia Millen. I don’t want to completely change my nose, and who I am. I would just love to even out the bump on my nose and make me love my side profile. I don’t know whether I will honestly go through and get it. I’m trying to see if I want to change it for me, or to be closer to the norm of beauty. Until I figure it out, I probably won’t get it done. We’ll see what happens. I am definitely for cosmetic surgery, but to some extent, it’s a little ridiculous! I never heard of nipple fillers, but I think it’s a little odd. I don’t know why I think that a breast implant is normal, but the idea of getting fillers so they always look hard is weird? Maybe cause it’s just more widely accepted? I honestly don’t know. Great post! xxx

      I had to type Lydia Millen into Google because I don’t know who she is. I use to work with this girl at Mac who had a bump on her nose. She went to get it smoothed but also change the shape. And it so weird! Like the nose was nice but it didn’t look like it belonged to her.
      Sometimes I think some women are just obsessed with the idea of beauty and are willing to do anything. So nipple fillers to them are like getting your lips done. xxx

    We are all flawed. Not a single one of us is perfect. And that’s one of the great things about life. Learning to love your flaws might feel like a constant battle, but the acceptance, that love, is worth fighting for. We are so much more than what we look like, it is only when we truly understand this….not when we finally become ‘beautiful ‘… that we can achieve real happiness. Thanks so much for sharing this super insightful post. Have a blessed life Laura, you are magnificent !! XOXO, Jyo

      Thank you!!! You are certainly magnificent! I loved reading this comment – it’s really made me smile. The love is worth fighting for – I’ve often fought for the wrong one, but the love for yourself is a battle that should never be lost. Have the most wonderful Thursday! xxxx

    I just loved reading this post! Your line about wanting a chiseled jaw but then losing the features of your grandmother really hit me hard. Our “flaws” tell a story and connect us to eachother!

    • LauraJ says

      Thank you! I’ve always had an issue with my jaw – I do have an overbite which probably affects it. But then I also think it’s just become me. Our flaws really do tell a story and I think the older we get, the more stories we have to share.

    You posts are always brimming with good advice and positive vibes, but this has to be one of your best. I myself prefer women that are natural without cosmetic surgery. We need to embrace our flaws. This is what us unique and interesting.

    Yet again another amazing post, thank you so much for writing this and sharing – the history point is also so important, something that has definitely helped me to accept myself over the years .xx

      Thank you girl!! I would love to see what my ancestors all looked like. My grandma left me a book with all these documents and photos dating back to 1700. But the others I’m completely clueless.
      Thank you so much for reading! xx

    Love this post and couldn’t agree more! I also have a big forehead and bad acne scars but I’ve learned to live with them and I like myself for who I am as a person. No one is perfectly beautiful and we all have to accept that what’s on the inside is what matters. You look great girl as always <3

    • LauraJ says

      Big foreheads = more brain space and intelligence. Haha okay probably not but whatever! People can’t be truly beautiful without being beautiful on the inside. And no one is beautiful enough for the world to all agree. x

    Cannot begin to tell you how much I absolutely LOVE this post! I share your view on imperfection – I like to think they add character. I definitely love looking at family members and seeing things I find to be flaws on them. If I think they’re beautiful, why should I think less of myself? xx

    • LauraJ says

      You definitely shouldn’t think any less of yourself! All imperfections are potential perfections to somebody else. The amount of times I’ve put makeup on women and said…wow I love your cheekbones, or you have great skin. And then they find all these faults and say yeah but my dark circles are bad etc. Things that I didn’t even see. xx

    Love. Love. LOVE this post! You are spot on beauty! It is interesting how we, society, and our loved ones, perceive ourselves. Our flaws are what make us who we are. They make us unique, and represent the battles we have faced in this life. It isn’t a negative thing, but a courageous on, all part of our story. You are absolutely stunning and I love that picture of you with your back showing. You are perfection! Thanks for sharing beauty. <3

    • LauraJ says

      If my fingers didn’t get so frustrated with typing, I would write thank you at least a hundred times!!!
      You have beautifully summarised – flaws are courageous and a part of our story! I love reading your feedback and I’m eternally grateful! xx

I would love to read your thoughts!
