“I decided, very early on, just to accept life unconditionally; I never expected it to do anything special for me, yet I seemed to accomplish far more than I had ever hoped. Most of the time it just happened to me without my ever seeking it.” - Audrey Hepburn.
I thought this quote was rather apt for how I've been feelin' lately - sometimes I get a little overwhelmed by everything that has happened since starting my little blog a couple of years ago. I've always been someone who believes in letting things in my life happen naturally as all things happen for a reason, and by doing that I really seemed to have achieved more than I could have ever hoped. With my magazine features, stylist work and modelling I've made my family proud which makes me feel unbelievably happy. To think that for half my life I was bullied for my looks and felt useless to finally becoming what I am today means ever so much. Thank-you all of your lovely comments and emails recently (particularly all of your ridiculously kind comments on my Miss Selfridge shoot!), you're the best. Love, Jazzabelle.

  2. The best part of bullying is payback time! The part when you shove in everyone's faces your happiness, I'm talking from personal experience :-D You are my inspiration, I love your style and I love your magnificent, natural beauty!

  45. Hi Jazmine. Just want to say I love this post, the picture quality is amazing and so beautiful. I am very proud of all you have achieved I was so happy when I saw you in company mag :)
    I think you have changed in the last few months for the better and I hope you're confidence is growing but I really don't want this to be taken on offence but you should tone down your eyebrows. I'm a trained MUA and work in a mac at kings road. I just think the beginning is to harsh and the colour is way to dark for your complexion, I think due to your face shape and undertones a dark brown would soften and compliment you. Also I was wondering if you would ever do a blog post on more of your personal life. Like you're family, friends,beauty section, hair care for Afro/European hair. I know it's a fashion blog but a touch of something refreshing would be good.
    Think it would be more personal and interesting, but that's just my opinion. Sorry if I offend you.

  52. I can't imagine how you could possibly be bullied for your looks by any stretch of the imagination! I came by to thank you for commenting on my blog about the Fashion Fest; I feel privileged that such a renowned blogger would take the time to comment on my little blog :) What you helped to organise was such an inspiring event for young people aspiring to have the life you do. You're obviously a beautiful person inside and out :) xx
