OOTD : YouTube Video!

Hello :)

Yes, i've taken the plunge into the all seeing, all hearing world of YouTube!

I thought i'd start off nice and easy by uploading an Outfit of the Day video, who doesn't love them?!

I'd love some feedback on it, so if you have time to comment/rate it then please do! *shamless plea over*

Saturday Night


Hello :)
Firstly i'd like to say a huge thank you for the response on my last post, it means a lot!
.
On Saturday i ventured down to Nottingham for a day of shopping and a night of drinking and dancing with my darling sister, Nichola, who is at Uni in Nottingham.
.
Unfortunately the weather wasn't on our side and the heavens decided to open, we managed to flutter between shop to shop without getting too wet but in the end we decided to cut the the afternoon of shopping short and headed back to her house and settle down to watch a film.
.
In the evening we went out into Nottingham, visited a few bars, had a drink and dance and when the time came when a rather drunken jeering old-ish man started loitering around us we decided it was probably time to call it a night.
.
Here is what i wore
Not my usual style, i'm more of a 'pretty little dress' girl, but i decided to embrace the rock chick look for a change.
.
Top - Topshop
Shorts - New Look
Tights - M&S
Boots - Primark
.
Hope you all had a fab weekend! :)

Beauty and the Beast : The Ugly Side Of Prejudice

Hello :)
.
I'm sure a few of you are aware of a tv show which graced your screens tonight, sensitively called Beauty and the Beast : The Ugly Side Of Prejudice.
.
The programme focuses on 2 kinds of people, one with a facial disfigurement and one person who is 'normal' and has quite a superficial view on beauty. Cameras will track the pair as they venture around London together.
.
So, why am i telling you about this? Well the reason being is that i have a facial disfigurement myself, and to be honest i don't know how i feel about the documentry. For one, the title is quite offensive, 'Beauty and the Beast' seriously?! I know they Channel 4 named it this to gain attention and exposure but i think its very insensitive, what message does that give out to the public about people who look different, that we are 'Beasts' . . . . strange
.
On the otherhand i think its good that Channel 4 are exploring the topic of facial disfigurements and bringing quite a shyly talked about subject into the public domain.
.
My story . . . .
When i was born i had a birthmark around the size of an orange on the side of my cheek, the doctors removed the birthmark but in the process unfortunately they removed my nerves/muscles in my cheek aswell. Resulting in me not being able to use the muscles on the right side of my face. This means i can't smile properly, raise my right eyebrow or waggle my ear (as if i'd want to ;)) I've had 5 operations trying to move muscles from my legs and arms into my face in an attempt to make the muscles to work again, but unfortunately nothing has worked!
.
I've had people say things about my face to me, my personal favourite being 'Have you got a tooth/face absess?' they said this as my face is slightly droopy/swollen on the right.
.
So i'm left with a not so symetricall face, some days it gets me down and knocks my confidence but there are always people who are worse off than me, so why should i complain! We're not all perfect, right?!
.
Call me cringy but i think beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, and no one is a 'Beast' as Channel4 nicely put it . . .
.
I'd love to hear your views on this topic, did you watch Beauty and the Beast? What did you think about it?
.
Since i posted a FOTD last month i've had a few Formspring questions/emails about my disfigurement, if you'd like to ask me a question about it then feel free to do so;
.
Thanks for reading,
Felicity
