Getting Real

Posted on April 10 2017


I'm back!! I have been AWOL from blog land for quite some time now. Thanks to those that said they missed my blog. It made me really happy to hear that what I wrote was appreciated and relatable. For those saying it just to be polite, thanks to you too. Writing for anyone other than yourself is actually really hard. It exposes you, makes you vulnerable and makes you doubt and evaluate everything microscopically. Each time I have gone to press submit on a post, I've had a serious bout of anxiety. Will it tank? Will it be funny? Will I offend someone? (My greatest fear). I'm not one to shout out my controversial opinions to the world (yes I have them), regardless of what others will think. I don't want to shame anyone, alienate or draw attention to someone's fears, pain, sorrow or insecurities. That's not my role. Not my thing. Not why I write.

Somehow recently my 'behind the scenes' work for TSID became a little more 'front and centre'. I stepped out from the comfort of the notes section of my iPhone and got in front of the camera. A lot. Like every week. Several times a week. In the Main Street, where we took our photos. I thought writing was hard but there is nothing that compares to modelling clothes. And I use the term 'modelling' very loosely.

I'm not a 'model'.

I'm a duck arse. I'm not long lean or willowy. My hair hasn't been done since November last year. I do my own make up. I can't get snapped and then rely on a photographers photoshop skills because Sam has been taking the photos. She doesn't do photoshop. She just does the 'auto' button on her camera that has soooo many more functions than 'auto'. Bless her.

So I just have to let the world (or Doreen, whatever) see what I really look like. Balls and all. Cellulite, hormonal zits, gappy teeth and Mum tum. And you know what. I'm cool with that.

Because it's REAL.

Everyone has shit about themselves that they don't like. But there are also things I do like. I hate my 3rd chin, but I like my eyes. My muffin top gives me hell but my feet are really quite attractive. My legs aren't long, but they work. I can run, skip, hop, play netball. My arms may wobble longer than they probably should, but they work. They can hold my babies.

Here at TSID that's what we are about. Embracing YOU. Rocking what you've ALREADY got. Not trying to sell you clothes that you'll only look good in if you lose a couple of kgs or are 6ft8.

There is already enough pressure on us as women. We have to be superwomen. Have clean homes. Well behaved kids. Be perfectly groomed and have our shit together. Well I can tell you now - That's bullshit. My kids can be total arseholes. My house is a brothel at times and my bra never matches my undies.

Being real is whatever you can handle. YOU. Not what anyone else perceives of you. What your brain, schedule and time allows. Perfection is non existent. It's unachievable, stressful and unrealistic.

Real is real at any size. Any height, any age.

So that's why TSID is using me. And my sister Megan. Because we are not perfect. And we are trying to smash the fashion industry's preconceived notions that only 'supermodels' look good in clothes. 

We will never use photoshop to alter the images. We may use the odd filter here and there (we aren't savages) but what you see is what exists. In all its imperfect glory.

I love online shopping. I pore over the online stores wistfully dreaming of outfits that look amazing on the model but will make me look like a burst cocktail Frankfurt. I've been a victim of online shopping. I've bought stuff from 'fashion' sites in a XXXXXXXL only to have it arrive and be handed straight to my 10 year old daughter.

We want to show you that you can still look good at any 'realness'. Size 8, size 22. Everyone is real. It's about good choices, and finding outfits that not only suit your body shape but your personality. The old adage 'you look good, you feel good' is true.

And the perfect accompaniment to a new outfit is confidence and a beautiful smile.

    Recovery companies/firm has played a crucial role in curtailing financial thefts by providing services to underserved populations who were unjustly exploited or targeted from their previous finance practices and investments, However, there will always be bad eggs in the groups like the first 2 firms I contacted before SWIFT ASSETS RECOVERY FIRM arrived and saved the day. SWIFT ASSETS RECOVERY FIRM and team have disrupted traditional financial services, offering innovative solutions that challenge established financial institutions and banking related frauds setting the standards for true excellence in this field. Unfortunately The knowledge and experience i have gained from my painful ordeal with the fraudulent platform that nearly succeeded in taking my money came at a great cost one that I had imagined would be the ruin of me. I lost my entire life savings of almost half a million dollars to a binary trading platform introduced to me by a lady I connected with on LinkedIn, she had provided me with all sorts of documents and proofs to collaborate her testimony which I later discovered were all fakes. I blamed myself deeply for trusting her words and being a novice in the industry, i fell for her game of numbers, I believed I actually had a real balance of huge profits and before I realized what was happening I had already invested everything I had saved up with them. I couldn’t bear the loss so I set out looking for help, it wasn’t an easy decision picking the right company to consult as I came across many different recovery agents/companies but in the end, it was worth the risk. I decided to go with SWIFT ASSETS RECOVERY Team on my third attempt through one of their contact channels on WhatsApp +1 (786) 684-0501 and I explained my plight to the team, well to round up my story, the team recovered my funds from the scam company in 72 hours of serious efforts unlike the previous recovery companies. Also the team is active on email SWIFTRECOVERYSERVICE006@ GMAIL.COM

    Hi Everyone, This is my story. I was scammed by a cryptocurrency investment company by the name Altercoin and Based on its website, it’s a British company. Everything began January 12, 2024, with a deposit of $350.0 USD to open trading account. Shortly after investing, Their system started generating decent profits , In the first week of February 2024 their system generated a 158% profit in one week approximately $65,000 USD. Altercoin employee Danny Nixon, an English man asked for additional capital to balance the profit, After the additional capital provided, they liquidated my trading account at the financial department request and placed the transaction on hold, After which they asked for more funds for various reasons which I did pay as well but still the funds was not released to my wallet so this got me very concerned and I decided to carry out an investigation on my own , I discovered later that they were on paper and the whole account was fake. I was left devastated and feeling crushed so I had to confide in my friend about everything that’s going on, he advised we hire a professional recovery company to trace down all my deposits and payments to Altercoin and have it retrieved, he’s well oriented in tech stuff so he recommended we seek out the professional help we needed from SWIFTRECOVERYSERVICE006 @GMAIL.COM which we did and At first, I had to provide the team with some proofs of my investment and contract with Altercoin before they could proceed to recover my funds. I must thank the team at SWIFTRECOVERYSERVICE006 @GMAIL.COM for how professional they were in handling my situation, demonstrates a commendable level of commitment and dedication to helping his clients such as myself recover our funds stuck in the hands of dishonest financial setups. To anyone reading this and is in need of recovery assistance, you can also contact the team through WhatsApp +1 (786) 684-0501

    I’ve been playing the lottery since I was 20, the highest amount I’ve ever won is $500 and I decided to get help online on how to win the lottery massively. I met DR MARCUS who gives out numbers to win the lottery with his spells. I communicated with him and he told me what I needed to know about how the spell will be done for me and I accepted. After 96 hours, he gave me the numbers and instructed me on how to play the lottery. I was shocked when I was notified that I had won $1,000,000 in the lottery and I couldn’t believe my eyes thinking I was dreaming but it was all real and happening. Getting rich is never by luck, it’s something we all have to work for, people have been playing the lottery for years and have never won. If you want to win big, I recommend you to DR MARCUS contact him via his Email:drmacusspellcaster@gmail.com and let him guard you on what to do.
