What I choose to do, is none of your business.

What I do, is none your business, in the nicest way possible, of course.

Putting your life online is great. It's a lot of fun, and I'm no where near bored with it just yet. But, along with this comes people's judgements. Judgements of you, of your social media, of your blog, and of your life, and it's totally expected.

We're all completely different people, whether we're part of the blogging world or not. We all have different opinions, different boundaries and different thoughts on the same topics. 

In my head, this is my blog, so I'm going to write about want. I'm going to take photographs of whatever the hell I want, and I'm going to put myself out there as much as I like.

If you've been following my little blog for a while, you might have read the few posts where I've talked a lot about body confidence, and my journey in overcoming my struggles with this. You also may have noticed that I have a few posts where, like this one, I've collaborated with lingerie brands so yeah, this is me in my pants. So what. I'm pretty sure you've all seen a girl in her underwear before.

I'm happy to put these photo's and these posts out there because, well... I'm a sucker for pretty underwear, I'm happy with how I look, and I know that I'm always inspired when I see ladies who really don't care what other people think. So this is me trying to do that, too.

I had a 'friend' tell me the other day that she didn't agree with these kind of posts. Blog posts & Instagram's where I'm 'revealing too much of myself', apparently. My reaction to this was a polite smile and a nod, and a swift change of conversation because I knew that she would never really 'get it'.

When I first started blogging, I think this kind of comment would have really got to me, and I'd have been thinking about it forever, worrying if that's what everyone thinks as well. But, thankfully, now I realise that the opinions of others really don't matter, as long as you're happy.

Do whatever you like (y'know... as long as it's not illegal or anything), because there's always going to be people that don't like it. People are always going to judge you, as they say, but I think it's up to you whether you take any notice of them or not.

I'm proud of where I've got to over the last 2 years, and I'm not going to let someone else's opinions stop me from doing what I want... are you?




  1. Girl, I think you look bloody stunning in these pieces (and I'd love to be in a position where Freya were contacting me to do the same because LOOK AT THE PIECES). Do what the hell you want because I'd say the people who are turning their nose up, are probably just jealous of how amazing you look xxx

  3. Jealousy is a bitch unfortunately. I love your blog, and you look absolutely amazing! You do you, and it's a shame your "friend" can't be happy for you!!

  4. You go girl - you look incredible in that underwear! I totally agree, just do what you want and forget the rest!

  5. Good on you for posting these photos as you look bloody stunning! Lingerie pics are no different from a bikini shot on your holiday so why the hell wouldn't you share beautiful photos of products you love? Damn right it's nobody else's business what you post, and if it means more posts like this? You're doing the right thing. Lizi xx

  6. Good on you! And girl, if I had a figure like yours then I'd be taking all the pictures and including them in posts. You are happy and confident doing it, so people should leave you be! You wouldn't exactly go and tell them to do something, so why should they think it's acceptable to tell you how to live your life?

    Some folks, eh?

  7. I totally agree with you! And also the pictures are so cool and the underwear you wear is perfect xxx

  10. I couldn't agree more Sophie, YOU DO YOU! :) I admire you for putting these pictures up, it's great to see you being so confident & comfortable with what you look like and who you are. You look stunning! x


  11. Why ever would it matter if a woman is comfortable being seen in her intimates? There will always be more power in being comfortable with your own skin than not. I do hate when people pop in with their judgments, but perhaps they are lacking the same self confidence, which is really rather sad.


  12. I definitely relate to this post! Sometimes I feel like you're more apt to be watched in general when you put more of yourself online, and it doesn't always come with the good. I'm at that point where I'm trying not to let what people think get to me. I don't care what strangers online think of me, but it's strange when people think they know you in real life when they only see one side of you. Also you look amazing in that lingerie... so worth posting! <3

  13. I absolutely agree in anything you said in this post. You might know a persons name but not his/her story and just because you're on social media (or not) does not mean others can judge you.
    Besides, you look gorgeous in those pieces. Well done x

  14. Love this post and the lingerie! You look amazing. Totally agree, I've had people tell me before that I shouldn't show skin on the internet (or even in day to day life), but SCREW them. It's my body, my rules. I wrote a post similar to this that touched on cat-calling that you might be interested in! http://www.scarletstate.co.uk/2016/08/nudity-cat-calling.html

    Great post Sophie :)

  15. YES! Totally agree with you. I've been in the same boat with comments from 'friends' about what I post online, either comments on how I was revealing too much after having a baby or just reading into things that weren't there . As long as you're not hurting anyone do what you want! You look fab, the underwear is gorgeous and this was a great post. Nothing but positivity here!


  16. If there's a moment when you're feeling happy and confident, I totally support capturing it. Chances are, you'll be happy to have these photos to look back on (and it will help put things in perspective) a decade from now...

  19. You're so inspiring, oh my goodness! Underwear is the cutest! Espeically when it's, well, cute! I think it's amazing that you have the confidence and feel this good in your skin, it makes me want to work harder on my own body, so thank you! Xx
