So, I did mention a few posts back (here) that it is time to ‘WORRY LESS’, don’t you love how simple yet so hard that is? I briefly said that I will explain to you why I don’t wear colour lipstick (have you even noticed?) Well, here it is. It is because and I can’t explain why this is, but it is because I think (yep, so silly, here we go) that people will think I  love myself or am ‘up’ myself.

I have felt this way about lipstick for as long as I can remember. I am not sure why that is, maybe because I would see it on TV, women with red lips getting attention or seeing mum put it on before going out, and I thought it was only a ‘going out at night thing?’. I just don’t know, but what I do now is that in my mind, if I don’t wear lipstick in colour I feel I blend in, people can’t judge me and think I think I am super hot or some shiz.

Maybe this relates to the same scenario about dressing up. If I put on heels or ‘dress up’ and go shopping, I kind of feel I am getting judged. Not so much overseas but definitely here in Australia, whats with that? Just the other day, I was talking to my girl Sanchia about it and how she felt so good dressing up when she was in LA recently but if it was here, people would be all like, “who she think she is?”.  How long is it going to take until Aussies can express their style through fashion without being called a ‘barbie’ or ‘rich bitch’ or ‘who the hell is that?’ Seriously dudes, lets worry less, the time is now! Can I get an AMEN!
