Diggers and Dungarees

I did a Insta post on this not long ago with this title but I feel there is more to the post than just not being a girly girl. It's about self confidence and the ability to be comfortable in your own skin. The world is suffocated in images and articles of how we should… Continue reading Diggers and Dungarees
