The Kylie Jenner movement and why I won't conform.





I just watched a video that not only made me LOL but was SO refreshing and a change from seeing a tutorial on how to look like Kylie Jenner. Don't get me wrong, I do love Kylie Jenner's style but I have really had enough of the Kylie Jenner wannabes. Make-up is something every girl loves,  I get that, I would say I like make-up in a way but I have no idea how to apply it. I have friends who look like a million dollars when they wear it but they aren't trying to be anyone else, my issue really is with most girls these days trying so hard to look like Kylie and they have all blended into one, isn't anyone an individual anymore?

This tutorial that I saw on Huff Post's Women's Facebook was basically a parody of a make-up tutorial and really a piss take of how if you wear your make up a certain way to work you won't be taken seriously or you can get further. 
I have been quite disturbed for a while of how much of an impact Kim and Kylie have on women. I get it, they look flawless, but it is also unreal expectations. As Instagram is a promoting tool for me, I'm always flicking through to get inspiration and all I'm seeing these days are girls who have all of a sudden got their lips done and are caking their faces to look like Kylie Jenner, and to add to that only wearing nude, black and grey, because of course, that's how Kyle and Kim dress.

I'm not shaming women who wear make-up, if I knew how to apply it, I would probably wear it more. But I just find it so sad the way society has us thinking that if we don't look like the Kardashians, then were not sexy. 
Sexy to me is confidence and someone who is happy in their own skin. The natural look in my opinion is beautiful. 
I feel like I'm blabbing on about a lot here, but it all relates to the same thing. I used to get told at work I should be wearing make-up and do my hair, like that was going to make a difference to my work? I'm all about presentation and looking fresh, but a full face of make-up doesn't suit me, and I shouldn't have to conform because that's what is "in" at the moment.

You might be thinking- what do your pictures have to do with your post Nicole? Well it is me, how I like to look, no make-up, unbrushed hair (dreadlocks included), and wearing colour. I want to keep promoting a healthy, happy and colourful body image, and for women and girls to know that is ok to be different. You shouldn't ever have to be a certain way to impress a guy, your work colleagues or your friends, because at the end of the day, your still going to be yourself no matter how much you try to cover it up. 

I'm not going to end this with words, just some pictures for your enjoyment...

  9. The Kentucky Derby 2017 will be the 143rd running of the Kentucky Derby, and is set for Saturday, May 6, 2017.
    Javier Castellano is arguably the best jockey in racing right now.
    Except, that is, at the Kentucky Derby 2017.

    It is a baffling fact: The top rider in the game -- he's won the Eclipse Award as the sport's best in each of the last four years -- has the worst record of any jockey ever to ride in the Kentucky Derby. And even with all his accomplishments, when the Run for the Roses draws near the most glaring omission from his resume starts gnawing at him.

    This is the one he wants, more than anything else.
    "To win this Kentucky Derby Live race, it would mean a lot," Castellano said. He paused for a moment, looked up and quietly continued his thought: "A lot," he said again.
