These Wingz were Made to Fly

So, recently I was contacted by the the lovely Sarah and asked if I would like to feature Wingz* on the blog, and i'll be honest, I jumped at the chance! I'd been interested in the product ever since Fiona tried them out, but with saving for Florida I kept not buying myself things that I really liked! 

Anyway I happily accepted the offer and got excited about trying this interesting new item, but then the apprehension kicked in, not about the product itself but more how I would write about them in a way that was authentic to me. You see exactly a year ago yesterday I wrote this post, a post about how finally at the age of 29 I had finally learned to love the body I'm in, but here I was accepting a product that was-in my mind-the perfect thing to hide one of my flaws. 
After a lot of thinking about it I realised I was beating myself up over nothing! Nobody can be completely in love with their body, all of the time, it is possible to love your body and dislike a part of it-we are human, we are not infallible, we are fickle and flighty, and multi-faceted...and that's just another thing to love about us. So there you have it, I love my body, but I hate my arms. 

Mostly I hate the skin on my arms, it's dry and flaky, and a little scaly. Some parts are red and inflamed, others are dark and discoloured...basically it's just a damn mess, and I like to cover it up (for my own sake mind, I don't really care how other people react to my skin- I just care how my skin reacts to air, and how I react to it) and Wingz are perfect for doing just that. 

No Regrets, They Don't Work

Now and again as we wonder around this vast and amazing internet world, we stumble upon posts of pure excellence-like most things written by Fiona of The Escapologist's Daughter, or Tara of Cattitude and Co- and sometimes you click on a post that you are super excited to read and it let's you down in so many ways. 
I landed on one such post last week, and honestly what was a great idea for a post was let down by the sanctimonious tone. I felt like I'd just read a lecture about the dangers of sugar, alcohol and cigarettes- now don't get me wrong all these things are bad for you *obviously* but if I wanted to be judged I'd go see my Doctor, thank you very much! However, this post did give me one thing. It gave me an idea, it inspired me to think about the things I DON'T regret doing in my 20's...MUM you might want to stop reading here! (Also I apologise for the shocking quality of the pictures in this post, but they are old)!
