Winters Comfort Food

FOOD!!!!!!!!!!

Yes as a fat girl you can guess I LOVE food and one of the best things about this time of year is the fact that I get to have and make a lot of comfort food. 

I wanted to show you my favourite places to go for comfort food and what I love to eat. 

4. The Dormouse 

A brill little tearooms that is all based on Alice in Wonderland is just 1 reason I love this place but also there soup is to die for. You get a large bowl and you also get a huge piece of bread and butter. I've had two different soups there and both were so nice and make you feel all cozy inside. I know this is all about comfort food but also just to point out they have an amazing cake selection too. 

3. The Walton Arms 

Paul and I have been going to The Walton arms for a while, we love it there because we get to bring Coco along with us. My favourite item on the menu would be there Sunday lunch platter that they do. You get 3 meats and then veg, a Yorkshire pudding and roast potatoes with an unlimited amount of gravy. I don't like pork or beef, I am much more of a poultry person but the meat I tried was so nice, not rubbery or anything which is really nice. 

2. My Mom's Pie 

When I lived at home my mom would make the most amazing pie! It was mince in a sauce with potatoes on top covered in cheese. It tastes just like home, I loved those days when I would come home and smell it as I walked in, I knew it would be a good night. My mom has told Paul the secret ingredient to her pie but he has since forgot it haha. She refuses to tell me. 

1. My Nan's Irish Stew

This is honestly the only thing better then my moms pie, but lets face it nan cooking is always better then mom cooking (sorry mom love you really). Ever since I can remember I have loved my nan's stew. I remember going over and smelling it cooking and then rushing to the table and having it with bread and butter. Before my nan passed away she gave me the recipe including the secret ingredients to it (which she hasn't even told my mom). A few months after she passed away I made her stew and my mom said it was like nanny had come back and made it herself. Which I am very happy about. 

To tell the truth this post has made me so hungry now so I think I may go off now and make me nan's stew just so I can have it and remember her a little more. Plus lets face it with it getting colder all I wanna do is have a bowl of stew and hyphenate haha. 

See you soon

Review of 'My Perfect Colour'' Foundation

Finding your perfect foundation can be ridiculously hard, you have so many brands with there foundations claiming to be 24 hour, 25 hour, long lasting etc. So Primark has sort of gone one step further by actually calling their new foundation ''My Perfect Colour''.


I had seen videos on youtube with girls like Grace F Victory reviewing the foundation just so I could see the coverage. For me I find it hard to find a shade I am happy with, some people will say my foundation is too pale, but then others I see as too dark. 



I had been using Maybelline Super Stay 24 hour foundation which is a very full coverage foundation but I felt like it had been washing me out so after watching so many reviews, I decided the £2.50 price tag of Primark's foundation was too good to pass up. 



I have tried so many of the cheaper foundation, from Poundland to Collection and I find that they do not have a very good consistency in the formula. I have also tried BB creams and I could not get on with them, so to be honest I did not have high hopes for this. 



I went into my local Primark to pick it up and I noticed they had a good colour range. I went for the colour ''Vanilla'' and I also picked up the mattifying powder which was £2.00. 





I got home and tried it almost immediately. I used my normal primer and colour correctors on my skin. The consistence of the foundation is very watery and I would suggest shaking the bottle before using.I applied it using a damp beauty blender and I found that after applying to my full face it left it feeling very oily, it does take a few minutes for it to settle down and be a bit more matte, but I have to apply the powder to my face as well to get it to the matte that I like it but that is personal taste. 



The coverage is said to be medium, but since I use colour correctors on my skin I do find it does cover a lot more then some foundations, but it is defiantly not full coverage, I would say somewhere in between mid and full. 





Lasting??? That is the big question, as a glasses wearer I find foundations tend to move under my glasses on my nose so I do find that is the first place that the coverage is gone, I also find the end of my nose tends to come through after a couple of hours. I don't think this is due to my application as I apply it the exact same way as I do the rest of my face so I am not sure why this happens. 



Overall I would say for £2.50 this is a pretty decent foundation, I have already repurchased it, but this time I bought 2 bottles, just to last a little longer, and I also am going to try the concealer stick. I normally don't get on with stick concealers but I hear this is meant to be quite creamy so I will give it a go. 



See You Soon

Favourite Christmas Movies

Christmas time is a time for the 3 F's Food, Family and Films! I love watching films in the run up to Christmas and I have already started watching a few, but like most people I have got my favourites. So just like I did in October with my Halloween films, I want to show you the films I love watching over and over again for Christmas time. 

1. Love Actually 

Is there anyone who hasn't seen this film???? I loved it long ago and I still love it. I also watched the mini squeal they did for Children in Need this year. Colin is my favourite character and I can quote the whole film. I do watch this film over and over again in the run up to Christmas just because I am that silly person who gets excited when it pops up with the 'Weeks before Christmas'' when it is in that week now. The only time I didn't watch the film was last year, Alan being gone was a little bit raw for me but this year I am all over it. 




2. Santa Claus the Movie

''Its CHRISTMAS all over the world TONIGHT'' 

This reminds me of my childhood it is very 80's and I couldn't love it more. I love that is shows the story of how Santa became Santa. I love his wife, reindeer, elves, magic lollies and Patch!!! This film is just ace I love it. If you haven't seen it I say go and watch it at least once. Also if your a Rocky fan keep your eyes open for Mickey!!!




3. Elf

The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear. Just like Love Actually I could quote this film word for word. I will also have random lines pop into my head every now and again any time of the year which I think is a sing of a good movie. The only part I cant watch is when he is eating bubble gum off the hand rail, even now just thinking of it makes me sick. 




4. Home Alone 

Original but the one in New York is really good too (except seeing Trump!). Just seeing the opening credits just gives me chills thinking its getting close to Christmas. When I was little I liked to think I would have been like Kevin and protecting my house. Looking back now I realise I probably would have cried and called my nan. 




5. Nativity 

MR POPPY IS LIFE!!!!!!!!! I only watched this for the first time last year and I have already watched it way too many times to count. As I said before Mr Poppy is life. I also like that it is set in Coventry, being a brummy girl I love hearing a good Midlands accent. Bob is my favourite kid he just makes me giggle so much, ''I wanna be an inn keeper because they are drunk all the time'' haha! I have watched the 2nd and 3rd one too but I much prefer the original. I have insta storied my favourite part of the film loads of times and it is when Mr Poppy is telling the kids Hollywood is coming to film them. I love watching the kids and it is just an all round funny family Christmas film. 




I do have another favourite Christmas film but I want to wait and tell you about that on Christmas eve, since it is involved in my Christmas Eve Plan. I hope you like a few of my faves, what are yours??? Let me know in the comments. 

See you Soon

Day 9 - Blogmas

Christmas for Retail Workers.

Christmas is a time for shopping and it is also a time that a lot of retail workers hate yes HATE. I have worked in retail for 8 years, christmas is always the hardest time. 

I used to work in The Disney Store and in the weeks leading up to christmas you would be asked for particular items, most of the time it was things to do with Frozen. In one 9 hour shift I was told 4 times 'You've just ruined my child's Christmas' because we had sold out of an item that the parent wanted. I bit my tongue and said that I was sorry (why I don't know because it wasn't my fault) but in the back of my head all I thought was ' No mate YOU have ruined there christmas because you didn't buy it when you were last here'. 

I understand that my opinion is very one sided because I am a retail worker, but I think that MOST (not all because some people are lovely) but most people think that retail workers are beneath them, and they can be spoken to in any way because we can't say anything back. When did this culture start??? 

Us shop workers give up our days off, lunch hours and time with our families to be in our work place to make sure that the general public have what they need to have a brilliant time with their families. I know that days off  are given up because where I currently work I get 1 day off in the first and second week in December and then none in the week leading up to Christmas. I have spoken to other places and they tell me they are asked to give up their breaks if it is busy for the 'needs of the business'. That is a company thing and I know that is the employer who has made those rules. All I ask from shoppers is to be nice to us. 

The person you could be yelling at that we don't have something in stock could be a single parent of multiple children giving up time with them, to serve you, to earn money to pay for 1 day with their own children. 

So at this festive season, please be nice and kind to everyone, yes it can be stressful, yes it can be hard, but just think we are all people and we all need a bit of love and festive spirit this time of year. 

In the words of Jerry Springer ''Be kind to one another''

Day 10 - Blogmas

Christmas Jumper Shopping

With Christmas Jumper day coming soon I thought a Christmas Jumper post would be a good idea. Me Paul and Coco always have christmas jumpers, Coco had a red one that slightly matched Paul's last year but we are getting her a new one this year. I am going to show you Mens and Womens christmas jumpers today so sit back and enjoy. 

Mens 




I no technically not a jumper but this is Paul's Christmas top this year, isn't it cute, I think this is gonna be good for anyone man cooking this year. Jumpers will make you feel so hot in the kitchen so having a nice t-shirt will keep you cool, but keeping you in the Christmasy mood. 




Oh Christmas Tree Oh Chritmas Tree!!! For the super festive Man there is this very cool christmas tree jumper, I love the colours I am bit blue fan, this looks like a nice soft jumper too which is always good if your gonna have a nice snuggle at the end of a long christmas day. Another good thing IT 
LIGHTS UP!!!!!!! 

Womens


 How SOFT does this jumper look, to me I think its one of those where you can just snuggle up and get all nice and comfy. Perfect for christmas time. 


Reverse Sequin Sparkle Jumper Evans £17.50 (in the sale) 


A bit of sparkle is always a good thing at Christmas, so sequins are very much welcome for my christmas jumper. I cant decided which one I like more, this one or the fluffy one. Normally this jumper is £35 so if you like it, bag a bargain while you still can.

What jumpers will you be wearing this year??? 



Merry Christmas

Day 11 - Blogmas

Bents Christmas

Here in the North West we have a brilliant Home and Garden centre called Bents, every year they have what I think are some of the best christmas displays I have ever seen and they just seem to get bigger each year. You can tell how much care and planning goes into the event, So I thought I would show you how cool it actually is. So grab a cuppa and watch a few of the videos I made while wondering around. 









As you can see the displays are amazing, they must work so hard to get these done. They have a huge christmas tree section, and then the displays that show you how different decorations can be used in there different sections. 





As well as these, they also have a big food and drink section outside, they play all christmas music so you get the feel of a christmas market but you get the bonus of being indoors the whole time so it is a little warmer for you. 

Me and Paul love it there because we can take Coco, they have this cute little dog cafe that sells dog friendly food and drink, so I can have a cake and  Coco can have a cake!! How cool is that. So if you are anywhere near the North West I would say make your way over and see how cool Bents is for yourself. 



Merry Christmas

Day 12 - Blogmas

Manchester Christmas Markets 

I have lived in Warrington for nearly 3 years and this years was the first time I was able to go to the Manchester Christmas Markets. I love christmas markets, they really make me feel all christmasy and festive and just all warm and sparkly inside. 

Paul had been before with his family but this was our first time going together. We both wanted to drink so we decided to get the train in, it wasn't too bad but the train was packed even tho it wasn't rush hour. We got the tram from Piccadilly station and got off near Manchester town hall. 

I didn't really know what to expect as being from Birmingham our market is all along one street but Manchester's is broken up into little markets all over. I honest have to say I like that, as the crowds are a lot more spread out and so instead of fighting your way through like in Birmingham you get to see a lot more and have a nicer time. 

First things first was obviously a nice hot drink, Paul got a mulled wine and I got a Baileys Hot Chocolate. 



You pay a deposit of £2.50 for your mugs and if you don't want to keep them you get your money back when you hand in your mugs. Both me and Paul like collection the mugs from different markets we go to so we kept ours. Mine was bigger which I thought was funny as I went for Hot Chocolate.

Next stop was the famous Yorkshire Pudding wraps. I saw these on Facebook and I told Paul that I needed to hunt them down as soon as we got the the market. We found them and stood in line, I think we must have got there at the right time because it wasn't too long before we were at the front, by the time we sat down with our food the line was huge. 



If you have no clue what I am talking about, the wrap is a huge Yorkshire pudding, with stuffing, a choice of either Turkey or Beef, carrots and peas, and topped off with a large scoop of gravy, all wrapped up like a tortilla, and put in foil, it was LUSH!!!! I said to Paul I could have done with some cranberry sauce, they did have some but I forgot to ask them to put it on. It was very expensive £7.50 each, but trust me it is so good it is worth it. 

We ate our food then had a proper good mooch round having a couple more mulled wines and Baileys Hot Chocolates and made our way around the rest of the markets, it was really such a good day, it was cold but we kept warm and like I said before with the market stretched out it broke up the crowd. 

If you get a chance to go do it, you will love it. 



Merry Christmas 
Lots of Love

Blogmas Review

Blogmas what can I say about Blogmas, it was something I wanted to do and had wanted to do for a while, I loved the idea of writing everyday, my blog helps me to write and get things out and I thought giving myself that time each day will make me so much more calmer over the christmas period. 

I wanted to get people involved and so I asked my friends if they would like to be apart of Blogmas, Jordan and Georgie were amazing and there posts have been so good over December, I have loved reading them. 

I was totally prepared for blogmas, I had each day planned out in my diary, I had drafted a few and was looking forward to writing each day too. The only thing I didn't really take into consideration was work. Working in retail is hard over christmas, I worked non stop from the 16th till 24th December, no days off and mainly working from 830am till about 7pm, getting home all I wanted to do was sleep. 

Looking forward to next year I can be a lot more prepared for what I want to do. I do want to do it again next year I just think instead of writing each day I will begin in write my posts in October or November, then have them all edited and ready to post for December. Then each day I will post it and publicise it, which I can easily do on my breaks. 

I have learnt a lot about blogging in the last 2 weeks, like how much I missed it, how it helps me to relax and how stressed I get when I don't write. 

So for next year I will plan blogmas a lot better, prepare to not write for 2 weeks and try not to get to stressed out if I can't write. 

Thank you to everyone who read our blogs and I hoped you enjoyed them. 

See you Soon 
Lots of Love

Looking Forward

Normally posts at the beginning of the year are all about what happened last year, what went well for me, what didn't, what I wanna change and what things that will stay the same but not for me, not anymore.

I want to look forward in this post, not back. Things have happened in the last year and they have made me who I am now. They have brought me to where I am now and I am greatful for them. 

So looking forward to this year I have two HUGE things happening, firstly in April I turn 30 (yes I know I look like I'm about 12 but yes I am 30 this year). 2nd I get married in July. I also want to do a lot more this year, I want to read more, I want to write more, I want to have more fun. I don't want to take things to seriously anymore. I stressed way too much last year and it got me into such a bad place. 

I'm not going to set myself goals or anything I just want to list what I want to do and maybe set targets but not take them too serious, so I suppose they will be something to aim for rather then something that I NEED to get to so these are the things I want to do :

- Read 6 books - I love reading but I am a slow reader so it does take me a while to read things, so if I do 1 for 2 months that is good enough for me. 

- 1 Blog a week - 
November I was doing 2 blogs a week and I liked it but if I aim for 1 blog a week and can do better then that is brill. 

- 2 videos on my youtube a month - 
I was doing 1 video a week, but I am no good with camera equipment, so Paul normally helps me by filming my videos, so if we don't get a lot of days off together I cant film, so 2 videos a month is a good start (till Paul can teach me how to work the camera. 

- Try and work with more brands/bloggers -
 I loved doing collaborations last year, first with ''From Maisie'' Emma is such a lovely person and I was so happy when she said that she would like to work together with me. Then with Krista from A Beautiful Mind 4 Me, where I did a guest blog about my mental health. I loved working with those lovely ladies and want to do so much more this year. 

I think that is enough for me at the moment, if I feel I can add anything I will, but the main thing for me is that I don't take things too seriously and get stressed out, especially around July for my wedding. 

I am excited about this coming year, I want it to happen quick but I also don't want it to rush past me.

So what are your plans for the new year? 

Have a Brill new year
Lots of Love

First Book List of 2018

I have always loved reading, I'm not a very fast reader but I do love getting lost in a good book. I feel like it is so easy to loose yourself and go to a completely new place where anything is possible. 

This year I want to read a lot more then I have been, I don't want to plan my whole year of reading right now as I don't know what books will be coming out this year, but I have 3 books on my list so far. As I said before I am not a very fast reader, so I am going to try and get through a book every two months, if I do it quicker then great but if I don't and it takes a little longer then I don't mind. 

I have my first three books all lined up, book 1 is:

Body Positive Power By Megan Jayne Crabbe 

I have been reading this since last year and it is already helping me so much with how I look at my body and how I look at other people. I no longer judge myself on the number on the scales, I see more then that in myself. I look at what clothing fits instead of focusing on the fact that I am going up in dress sizes. I used to think that thin people were the enemy (sorry), that it was us against them. I now look at everyone and think, if you want to look how you look you do it, ''You Do You'' no one has the right to tell you how you can or can not look, or what your body should or shouldn't look like. If you want to loose weight then do it, but do it for yourself and not to fit into something society has forced you into thinking is and isn't acceptable to look like. 

Already Megan has given me the confidence to look at my body differently, it is not disgusting, it is not ugly, it is cute and cuddly and is me, my body will be here for me forever and I need to love it a little bit better. 

If you are feeling down or feeling like you aren't happy with how you look because of what you see in magazines, have a read of this and trust me you will feel different.

The Not So Subtle Art of Being A Fat Girl by Tess Holliday 

Tess has been an inspiration of mine for a while, she was the first plus size women I followed on Instagram. For me she made me change my opinion on the word Fat. When I was younger I was bullied and fat was the main word I was called. So to me it was the worst thing you could possibly be, worse then a liar, worse then a bully, worse then swearing. It was the one thing you never wanted to be and it was the only thing I was. I carried that around with me for so long, but fat as an adjective means 

'A person having a large amount of excessive skin'

Yes I do have a lot of skin well done. A word has a lot of power, I know that because it affected me for so long, but at the age I am now, I don't let it have that power over me anymore, I own it. If someone was to call me fat now, I would say, thank you for pointing out the obvious, anything else you would like to point out? I have brown hair, I wear glasses, anything else obvious??? Well done you notice I am fat well done!! You can see, and..... that doesn't mean I am not a nice person, or I make my friends laugh, or that I am loved. Yes I am Fat but I am so much more then that too. 

Tess has made me realise that and I honestly can't wait to read her book.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone By J.K. Rowling 

HUFFLEPUFF HUFFLEPUFF HUFFLEPUFF!!!! Ok now that is out of my system I have to admit at how bad a HP fan I am, I have never read the books (Covers face in shame) I know I know I'm a fake I'm a fraud!!! But I am going to change that this year, I am going to read them, I cant wait. I know that there will be a lot more in the books then in the movies and I want to know more. 

I am on Pottermore and I am a very proud Hufflepuff, I know my patronus (a blood hound in case your interested) and I know my wand (a unicorn heart string). Yet I have never read the books, so I am very excited to see the characters a bit better and then maybe get a little agree with the producers and writers for changing the stories. 


Image result for harry potter and the philosopher's stone book

These will be my first three books of this year and I cant wait to start reading. What else do you think I should read?? Anyone else read these books, what do you think of them?

Where have I been???

Ok so I am sheepishly coming back to my much overlooked blog. 

I guess what has been stopping me writing is life. I have had work, anxiety problems, wedding planning and baby making going on, this by the way sadly isn't a pregnancy announcement. For all the trying we have been doing it just doesn't seem to be happening for us just yet but I have plans to write a blog about what we have been through in the future. 

I guess to give you a bit of an update. Work is normal, my anxiety was under control for a little while but has lately been on and off, which I suppose can be linked to the wedding and getting everything sorted. I am still on tablets for it, which I take when ever I feel a panic attack coming on. 

I found an anxiety and depression support group in my local area but I have been too scared to go, which doesn't help me really but I think it is because I am a big chicken who is too scared to actually go and get help because I am worried I will be judged. I understand it is a support group so people wont judge but when I think about going to the group it's just scary. 

Wedding, well anyone who has ever planned a wedding will know how much pressure you put yourself under and how scared you get that it will all go wrong. We are only having a small wedding, 14 people in the day and another 30 at night so it is very small, there wont be a DJ at night time either it's more just getting people together and being a family. We have lots planned but all I think is, will people think it's rubbish??? My dress though OMG my dress makes me smile so much!!!! It is so cute and pretty and I can't wait to show you all the pictures!!!! 

I am pulling a Duchess of Cambridge and doing my own make up on the day, so I have been practising that look and getting it down to a tee. I also have the run through of the morning in my head. So here is hoping it all goes the way I have planned (and if that actually happens it will be a bloody miracle), with 6 weeks to go I am just feeling so nervous and excited all at the same time, there is still a couple DIY's left to do but then it will all be finished. 

So baby news, well no baby yet, we tried for 2 and a half years and nothing, so after a particularly hard time of me thinking I was pregnant and then having a negative test we decided to stop actively trying. As I said before I will be posting a LONG ass blog about what we have been through. 

I think that is it for a little catch up on me and what has been going on. I am mostly active on my Instagram so if you want to keep up with me give me a follow there and you can see me more. 

See you all soon
Lots of love

Turning 30 and still clueless!

30!!!!!! When the hell did that happen, ok well it hasn't happened yet, but this year I turn 30, 30! 

When I was younger I alway's thought that by this time I would already be married and have children and be a famous actress. Ok yes I do get married this year, but apart from that I guess life doesn't turn out how we want sometimes. 

Even when I was 20 I thought I have 10 years to find someone to marry, get a job I love and pop out some kids. In fact I went to uni, now work in retail and kids are something I am praying for. Ok so I am making my life seem really rubbish at the moment, in truth it isn't. Yes ok I have no idea what career I would love to do as I seem to change my mind every week, but I have a lovely home, a gorgeous doggy, a man I love and did I mention I get married this year??? 

At high school I would look at grown ups who are my age now and I thought they must be so clued up, they know what they are doing and they have a life. Now I am that age, I am just as clueless as I was back then.

Family wise I am very happy, I have my fiancee and our dog and our home. Yes I would love a baby but that is being worked on. Job wise, erm lets not talk about that. I would love to write for a living but I don't think my grammar and spelling would do very well. I would also love to teach but I don't have the money to go back to uni to train again. I think I am beginning to come to the conclusion that you never really have your life together. 

I find myself getting unbelievably weirded out by the fact that myself and Paul are adulting at all, like when it sinks in that you have a job and you pay for everything, I sometimes feel like I am just playing house but then something will happen and I will look for an adult and it sinks in that I am the adult. 

When did that happen???? Like I still only understand 1 function on my washing machine!! I still don't fully understand how to make poached egg. I don't always do the washing up, I still leave clothes lying around. The only difference between now and when I was a teenager is that my mom isn't around asking me to bring plates down or to do my washing. 

I cant be the only person out there who is utterly clueless at this age??? Please tell me I'm not, please, someone out there....... 

Don't get me wrong I do love adulting too, like no one can tell me not to eat chocolate cake at 7 in thr morning, but then you have to pay all the bills. You have to do a full food shop but then no one can tell you not to order pizza. I suppose it's a bit give and take.


Anyone else suck at adulting?

Fat Bride!!

If you know me personally or you are following me on Instagram or Twitter you will know that I am getting married this year!!! I am so unbelievably happy that I can finally say that. I get married in July and honestly I can't wait. 
As a fat bride I knew the ''in'' thing was to loose weight and fit into that dream dress. Every bridal magazine I bought was full of articles like ''How to stop bloating on the big day'' ''Loose 5lbs before your wedding'' ''Best detox diet''. 

I felt like Fat Alice falling down the dieting rabbit hole. Those words were running around in my head, diet, loose weight, fit in that dress. 

Even when I went dress shopping, the women helping me into gowns assumed I would be loosing weight before the big day. I was told which dress would suit my figure after loosing a few pounds. I was told how to make my waist look smaller. 

I went along with it because in my head that is what brides do, they loose weight to have pictures to look back on and say 'oh I looked amazing on my wedding day'. But there is a big secret that the diet industry don't want you to know and that is 

          'No matter what you WILL look amazing on your wedding day' 

Your wedding day is going to be the happiest day of your life, it doesn't matter what you look like, what you wear, who is there, all that matter's is that you are marrying the person you love, and love makes everyone look beautiful. Of course a gorgeous outfit always helps haha. 

I have been through 3 wedding dresses. 2 of which I was positive I would loose weight to fit into, but then I found a lovely lady by the name of Megan AKA BodyPosiPanda and she helped me to realise I don't need to loose weight to be beautiful. I already am beautiful. I started to look at other fabulous fat women and see that what made them so brilliant was their ability to not give a shit about what people thought of them. 

I realised I didn't need to loose weight to be a beautiful bride, because I am going to be a beautiful bride no matter what a set of scales or a magazine article says.

SO for all you plus size, fat, curvy brides out there let me tell you one thing, you do not need to change, you do not need to loose weight for a dress, just be yourself, be you, that is who your marrying fell in love with. You are perfect just the way you are.

See you Soon
