Hi, my name is Tessa. I enjoy posting photos of my favorite royals, some beautiful quotes, fashion, jewelry, palaces and places. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Girls are raised in a society where flattering clothing means clothing that makes you look skinnier. Where fat is an insult more often than a noun and not just a physical description but a reflection of personality. Where “you look healthy” is what you say when a girl gains weight, but “you look good” is what you say when a girl loses weight. Girls are raised in a society that teaches them it is their own responsibility to be as small as possible because they do not deserve to take up space.
