The Pretty perfect project is a safe and relaxing space to feel safe, inspired, comfortable and basically all fuzzy about our bodies. This is inspired by the amazing Amy at Flaws and All, back in the blogging days of 2012. The movement she created was so inspiring and the stories and reading others responses was more useful than I can say… just knowing I wasn’t alone on so many levels.
It’s a little escape from the throes of instagram and today’s picture perfect world, it’s an escape from never feeling good enough and feeling left out. It’s a real look inside, because what we see on the outside is so far away from what is on the inside!
It’s open, for everyone to join in, a space to feel relaxed and open and feel themselves, be themselves and invent anything for themselves. To realise our potential is far away from followers or likes, from comparing ourselves to others and frequently wondering why we’re not like that!
The Pretty Perfect blogging award is a super special award that invites you to have your own space here on this wall, your own special interview to inspire others through being you. We can come back to the page every time we need a boost and enjoy them and relate and feel beautiful, relaxed, confident and ourselves. I love the idea of creating a space where we can read each others stories and relate and feel inspired, and super comfortable. It’s really interesting to find out how others feel about their bodies.

Caz at InvisiblyMe – www.invisiblyme.com
Caz’s interview is so powerful, brave and inspiring! Her blog feels like such a safe place, reading her articles and words is reassuring, yet it is such a powerful space that tackles chronic illness head on – Caz is unafraid in her pursuit to raise awareness of invisible illness and how destructive it is and her own experiences act as a beacon of light and reassurance to others feeling completely lost. She creates new spaces for others to feel at home in with her interview – she is paving the way for others to feel happy in their bodies when it feels like they are falling apart.
