Toast, Poolday, Doggy Walk, & Self Confidence.

Toast redeemed themselves yesterday morning. Remember when I went to Toast a while back? If not, you can read about it HERE. I wasn’t too impressed after hearing so many great reviews, but maybe it was just a bad day for the restaurant or maybe it was just the location. This time, I went to the Toast in Fort Mill and it was one of the best breakfast I’ve had in Charlotte so far! The coffee didn’t taste burnt, it was creamy and fresh!

I ordered the Western omelet without ham, wheat toast, and a side of fruit. Not kidding, the meal came out within ten minutes. I couldn’t believe how fast it was and everything tasted incredible! The fruit was fresh, the eggs were cooked to perfection and the toast…well they surely live up to their name. Great job, Toast!

After breakfast, Grumples and I went for a long walk. We have a path that is lined with old southern homes, the ones with the wrap around porches, and big pillars. Those are my dream homes.

He was ready to quit after four miles and I don’t blame him!

He knew he was getting a treat after the walk because it’s tradition every time we go on that walking path. He gets so excited at the bakery!

After our walk, I was ready to lay out by the pool for an hour with a good book and let grumples chase the bubbles.

I made a homemade lemonade to enjoy by the pool as well 🙂 The mason jar is green if you’re wondering why the lemonade is green! The lemonade has 1 packet of stevia, 1 lemon squeeze, and the zest of the lemon!

My hibiscus bush I bought at Lowes is getting bigger!

Grumples finally went into the pool. He really wanted his ball that was floating around. I was literally in shock. He actually seemed to enjoy it, and maybe because it was really hot outside. I helped him walk down the stairs and swim back out to them. He didn’t get back in after that though.

He was more interested in the bubbles.

After laying out and swimming for a bit, I drove up to the grocery store to grab shrimp and potatoes for dinner! I’l post that recipe next 🙂

After laying out, I looked in the mirror and couldn’t believe all the freckles making their way out for the summer! Does anyone else get crazy freckles in the summer? I even get them on my lips.

Also, after posting this photo on Instagram and had a crazy email. I won’t say any names, but people should really pay attention to the things they are saying when it comes to appearance. This is me, without makeup, sure there’s an Instagram filter, but it’s me. The email was basically just a analytical list of all the things I need to do with my appearance.

They were listed in this order:

  1. You should wear under eye make up and get injections for your bags.
  2. There is invisiline for that split of yours.
  3. Have you ever heard of injections for the rinnkles on your forehead?
  4. Your lips are super dry, wear lipgloss.
  5. Where do I start with those brows? They need shaped, plucked, and shaded in with a pencil.
  6. What is up with your hair?
  7. You looked better with your lighter contacts.
  8. I use waterproof make up before going to pool events. I can give you some cheap brands if you’re interested.
  9. Your cheeks look a lot puffier lately, lay off the salt.

To be honest, none of that bothered me. But you never know who you are talking to or how they will react. What bothered me is that people think they have the right to talk to others that way. If you don’t have anything nice to say….well you know the rest. That is what’s wrong with society; we change things because of what others say or think. I know I’m no Kendall Jenner, or Beyonce, I’m Taralynn. I don’t know if this girl was being serious or if she was just sending a mean email trying to work me up. I see girls bringing each other down all the time, why can’t it be the other way around? I did see all the nice comments on Instagram from my readers that made my day, but there is always that one person.

My reply to her?

  1. I love my dark circles and puffy eyes, It shows I’m human and sometimes have trouble sleeping.
  2. That split of mine was given to me by God, and I’m going to keep that piece of character.
  3. I’m 24 years old and I don’t need injections; no one needs injections. I passed as a middle schooler at a baseball game a week ago.
  4. My lips are dry because I’ve been out in the sun all day. Don’t tell me that’s never happened to you.
  5. I love my brows, I love how thick they are, sure they could use a little work, but they’re my brows and that’s how I like them. I fix them when I need to, but I don’t religiously wait for one to grow back so I can pluck it right away.
  6. What’s up with my hair? It’s called getting it wet in the pool. It’s fun!
  7. I think so too, but it’s more comfortable to rock my natural eye color. Brown eyes are just as pretty as blue, grey, or green eyes.
  8. Not interested in wearing make up to a backyard pool party for one. I wear makeup maybe one a week, and it’s basically just mascara and lipstick.
  9. I love my cheeks.

No matter what people say to you, or to people about you, just be you. Do what you love, what makes you feel pretty, and embrace every flaw. You’re beautiful, your flaws are beautiful, and no one can change that. Don’t let anyone stand between you and your self confidence.

One one person can judge you…

    When I first saw that picture at the top of this post, all I thought about was how cute your freckles are. Literally my only thought. Then I kept reading.

    My next thought was “what the f$%# is wrong with people?!”

    You do you girl. Haters gon hate. That poor girl probably has an extreme amount of hatred for herself. It’s sad, actually. Your response was great!

    Wow, that person sounds horrible! Your freckles are so cute, but I do need to say that’s a sign you’re not wearing/reapplying your sunscreen often enough. I used to get my freckles every year. I didn’t get any this last year because my goal was to wear a high protection sunscreen and reapply as much as I was supposed to. I even spent the same amount of time outside this year! The only change was sunscreen. Some are permanent, but most of my freckles come out in late spring/early summer due to sun.

    I read your lovely blog routinely and get inspired every time I’m on here! This is my first time commenting! The first thing I noticed about this post was how adorable & relaxed you looked! We r getting our pool ready! (Ohio). You are beachy! The email you got was well…it starts with a B and ends with a Y! I would not give those emails any time or thought! You inspire daily! I love reading your blog, you recipes, and of courses about Mr. Grumples! Thank you for being YOU! Hope you have a lovely weekend looking as beachy as you want!

    Taralynn,
    You are such a natural beauty! That selfie just shows it all off and accentuates all the great things about you! Not to mention the best show-cases of all: your happiness and confidence! You are strong- you did the best thing possible not giving into that girl after what she said. Who knows what happened to that person in their personal life to make them that way. Pity. You took the high road and you are are even stronger now because of it!

    Wow, I am just amazed at your strength and courage in your reply to that hateful e-mail that was designed to cut you down to shreds. That person who wrote it had no idea who she was trying to mess with! I am so impressed and definitely would like to be as strong as you in your place of self-acceptance and love. I believe you are a great role model and I love your blog, Taralynn! I really respect and appreciate the wisdom that you have shared about standing up for yourself and remembering your opinion of yourself means more than some stranger on the internet. Where does your inner strength come from? I would love it if you could expand on that sometime – I sure would like to have some of that. Wish I could have had it years ago, but better late than never!

    You go girl. And you’re beautiful! (in fact before I scrolled to read the email, my first response to your post-pool selfie was “She’s beautiful! Naturally beautiful, the most elusive beauty of all!)

    Gosh. I know it’s so easy to tell ourselves that these are words, they don’t matter, and the person who said them is very insecure. Words hurt though, and I’m sorry that happens to you so much! You have much thicker skin than me, I wouldn’t be able to deal with it all the time. I hope you sent that reply to her! Sometimes people say these things because it makes them feel good, and they think you will be too “busy” to see it or reply.
    You have way more supporters than critiques, and I think as long as they are talking, you are doing a great job 🙂

    I can’t even believe that comment.. I literally saw that picture of you on Instagram when you posted it and I HAD to stop scrolling… I was like hot damn! You look SO so so stunning! But even more than that.. You look genuinely happy! I’m glad you’re such a strong person and are able to rise above her comments, and also that you are able to inspire some girls who aren’t as confident as you. You’re gorgeous and you always use your platform to share honest things that most girls go through.

    But hey- If that person spent that much of her day to critique your picture, it must not be THAT bad to look at. 😉 😉

    You are beautiful! I’m sorry you have to deal with all of the negativity and rude comments. They stem from unhappiness and insecurity. It’s a real shame those people come here and shit all over everything. I’m sure it can make you question why you even bother blogging. But there are plenty of people like me who look forward to your posts and get so much inspiration from what you do. Your freckles are lovely – I LOVE them! They really make you look youthful and vibrant. I wish I had freckles!! Love the blog and love your face. Keep it coming with those beautiful head shots – those snide, classless bitches can wallow in their jealousy with every pretty shot!

    Look at Twiggy’s freckles and Brooke Shield’s brows. You could pass as their love child 😉 plus that photo is absolutely gorgeous and so natural and real. Art and photography are about capturing life and emotion, not creating static perfection with every hair smoothed down. How boring would it be for your grandchildren if all you had were stiff airbrushed photographs of yourself? they’ll want to see your soul and your sense of adventure in those photographs.

      Anyone being cyber bullied should never feel hurt from someone hiding behind a computer screen. They’re the insecure ones. Not a day goes by where someone doesn’t say something hurtful, and if I ever took it personally, I’d be a wreck! They really aren’t worth my time or breath.

    This post seriously makes me so angry! I’m angry because the person who wrote to you was told something similar sometime in their life and now they feel they need to go through all of these hoops to please people? I don’t know I don’t get the point of all of it, I’ll try not to rant but you are beautiful and nothing is more beautiful than your confidence to withstand nasty comments like the one your received, and its very unfortunate that your mean commenter didn’t have that kind of confidence to stand up for herself. End of rant keep on doing what you do!

    First off, you are beautiful. All this appearance hungry individuals are going to wake up one day and realize their looks are fading and they suck as individuals. It’s easy to throw on make-up but it’s not easy to become a well-respected, loving person. At the end of the day the latter is what matters.

    I feel sorry for people like her…it must be really difficult to be so perfect all the time. She’ll get her reality check at some point though – my guess is when she has kids…when chapstick is considered make-up and leaving the house in anything other than sweatpants is dressing up.

      I’m not sure what the email was trying to do, but I felt the need to say something publicly because I’m sure girls get comments or judged like this everyday and no one needs to change unless they choose to! That’s why I hate shows like fashion police and tabloids talking about girls features. Look what society did to Kylie Jenner? I’m sure if she wasn’t being compared or snarked at all the time, she would have never felt the pressure to change her features that were naturally beautiful.

        Hi
        I’m so sorry to hear about the rude email. I personally think you’re beautiful. Don’t worry about the haters. I personally admire girls who are confident enough to go out without spending an hour doing makeup and hair.
        You’ve given me confidence to believe that I’m pretty just the way I am and I’m sure you’ve done it for tons of other girls as well.

You have a natural beauty and it doesn’t need to be covered up by a bunch of fake crap. I commend you for being so positive. You are an inspiration to many exactly the way you are. You’ve shown that with hard work and a positive attitude, good and healthy change is possible. Are you perfect? No. But guess what? NOBODY is. We all make mistakes. Maybe instead of picking others apart, these people need to work on their own insecurities. I highly doubt they would enjoy it if someone was running them down constantly. Anyway, I think you’re doing a fabulous job so keep it up!

      It happens a lot, and I’m not perfect. I’ve said things before when I was mad at myself and I’ve regretted it. People make mistakes, that’s what makes us human. I do hope she doesn’t feel like appearance is what makes a person beautiful and maybe she’ll read this and realize it. I really don’t know the point of that email or if she was trying to be rude or helpful, but it came across wrong.

      Thank you for the kind words and the positivity! xo
