P*ssing off the fashion industry? Who cares...

Cameron Russel certainly doesn't.

Today, I saw a talk shared by one of my friends on Facebook.  This friend happens to be an underwear model.  There was no comment with the post she shared, but I am glad that she shared it - because it is amazing.

Cameron Russel not only highlights so many important issues that are happening in this world right now, but she is honest and about something that she has done for over ten years.  She also acknowledges the fact that if it wasn't for this industry she wouldn't be at college now.


As a 26 year old, I can honestly say that I am still as insecure about my body as I was as a teenager.  If not more so now.  So her comparisons between the model work she has done and her real life were what inspired me the most.

When I am travelling, the thing that always bothers me or should I say bothered me the most was the fact that I always looked like I had been dragged through a bush backwards.  On my latest trip to Thailand though, I realised that looking good is no substitute for having a good time.

I love fashion as much as the next girl, but I also love getting grubby and having fun (even if sometimes this terrifies me).
 
Terrified but loving every minute of my sky dive in Taupo

Anyway, here are some photos of me during my time travelling or being casual at home, next to some of me at evening events - see if you can spot the difference...

wedding vs full moon party

nights out in Sydney vs elephant trekking in Thailand

nights out in TOWIE land vs coastal walks in Sydney

new make up #SELFIE vs no make up photo booth at work
 Don't get me wrong, I love getting dressed up and going out to nice places, but if I had the choice between a work suit or bikini and shorts - the bikini and shorts would win hands down.
