Who knew this is what I would or COULD grow into? Who knew I would be here in 2017 at all? Healthy and pretty fucking happy. I sure as hell didn’t.

today I’m completing 1 year and 5 month on T and here are a little motivation for my guys! I look to these old pictures and  I think on how fast everything happens and when I look back seems like this was the longest year in my life. It’s strange and exciting at the same time, I can not wait to see what the future holds and top surgery here I go!!!

I can’t tell you how many times I get told that I look exactly the same as I did before I started T. That’s fine if you don’t see the changes, because I do. I see myself standing up straighter. I’ve seen my face becoming one I’m happy to see looking back at me in the mirror. I feel my body getting stronger. I see myself smiling more, feeling more, and all around just LIKING myself more. I’m not here to please others with some drastic transformation, I’m here to be myself… as I’m becoming more myself. You’re welcome to watch, but this journey is for me

Way pre-t vs 15 months on T. (The picture on the left was the day I chopped my hair off).

OVER HYPED: Maybelline Color Tattoo Pure Pigments

When Maybelline was launched loose pigments the beauty blogger in mean had to purchase them straight away. I’m a huge fan of pigments, their intense colour pay off, huge shade range and blend-ability never fail to win me over, so it’s a shame Maybelline’s didn’t… I found the colours sheer (not much pigment here, definitely not enough to be called pure!), sparkly, hard to blend and they had a horrible dry, gritty texture. The staying power was also a let down. I found that these faded on the eyelids very quickly and are nowhere near in comparison to the Color Tattoo Cream Eyeshadows. I did purchase the more colourful shades (Brash Blue and Pink Rebel) and have heard nothing but praise for the neutrals but overall I’m not a fan.
