my naked lunchbox by freelee. Why am I so ugly?

Posted by Freelee The Banana Girl on

Lately, i go days without looking in the mirror even once, and i find it incredibly freeing. This was definitely not always the case. As a young woman, i became obsessed with my reflection. I would spend hours a day analysing and comparing. Was it because i was vain? Because i thought i was too perfect for this world? On the contrary, i saw a face filled with 'imperfections'. I believed the story i was told by advertisements, that i was born inadequate and in desperate need of enhancement.

I saw normal human characteristics as defects to be erased or covered; to be ashamed of. I hated my skin, especially my freckles. My smile was too narrow and my teeth too crooked. My top lip too skinny. Eyes not big enough. My hair too fine. The reality is, i didn't see the real me in the mirror. I didn't see the cheeky girl who loved to explore nature for hours and play in the dirt and creeks, instead, i saw the ugly lies the beauty industry fed me. I've now been many months without makeup, fake lashes, creams, treatments etc and it feels so damn liberating. Remember, you were not born flawed, you were born into a flawed system. You were designed to be wild and free, to get dirty, to love and laugh, to explore and experience this beautiful planet - not to stress over your humanness.

the raw till 4 diet. go raw till 4 vegan!

Posted by Freelee BananaGirl on

In my early teens and most of my twenties i had serious digestive issues. I was often curled up in pain, this picture is symbolic of that. I took courses of strong antibiotics, they only intensified my issues. I was losing my sanity. I decided to book in with the 'best gastroenterologist in australia'. The 15 min consult cost $215. He looked ill himself but he was the "expert" after all, so i trusted him. I was sent for an endoscopy. $430 later he diagnosed me with "an inflamed gut". Well no shit sherlock! I could feel it was inflamed...but why?? He said i need not worry as there was a special medication coming from the usa soon which would heal me, in the meantime there was another drug he recommended. I knew this was a lie, i'd been there before. As he was writing the script i stood up and pushed the chair away "no✋️i do not want anymore drugs!" and stormed out.

Long story short, i decided to take my health into my own hands. I found the raw vegan and raw till 4 lifestyle (most importantly fruit) and finally got out of my bodies way and let my body heal itself. Freedom from your digestive distress is closer than you think. Check out my Raw till 4 reviews on my youtube channel!

my naked lunchbox by freelee. zerowaste lifestyle

Posted by Freelee The Banana Girl on

At one point i used to waste so much money buying designer handbags, and for what? To be admired by random strangers? To be accepted into some sort of ‘elite’ club? Envied by friends? Looking back i realise i just lacked true purpose and direction in life. I was also looking for love and acceptance through an expensive, wasteful lie. Thankfully, i woke up. Now i dream about a waste-free world and really believe it’s possible if we start with ourselves.
I decided to learn a new skill that helps with this focus and am now making bags out of 100% palm leaf. They are reusable for years (depending on how u treat it), biodegradable and #zerowaste. They are also great for gifts. I know not all of you can make these bags, however, what you can do now is implement little changes into your lifestyle that will make a huge impact on the world around you.
Firstly, go vegan ofcourse! If you go for take away food, always take reusable plastic containers. Take a photo of business cards instead of taking the actual card. Shop in second-hand stores for pre-loved bargains. Use a menstrual cup instead of tampons. Always take reusable produce bags for fruits and veggies. Ride your bike to close destinations instead of driving. Bam. These are only a few tips, feel free to add more in the comments

My naked lunchbox by freelee. Why am I so weird??

Posted by Freelee BananaGirl on

In my eyes you are successful in life when you have the courage to embrace who you really are, however strange or peculiar that may be. Regardless of whether it fits with societies expectations or cultural norms. Growing up i often said the wrong things, didn't have the right clothing, or the right look, and was laughed at or excluded for being "a bit weird". I never felt fully accepted. Over time i learned to keep my "uncool" thoughts to myself and adapt my appearance so others would feel comfortable being around me. This only left me feeling internally suppressed and frustrated, (certainly not free) until one day when i reached my threshold and thought - ahh fuuuck it, this is boring! And this isn't me! - from then on i decided to just let the true me flow, to be my rawself, to act impulsively, to own that embarrassed look from others and to be the awkward freak i'm born to be. The result? Goodbye fake friendships, hello soul mates.

my naked lunchbox by freelee. I don't want to live in this world anymore...

Posted by Freelee The Banana Girl on

A world where shopping at the mall for useless shit is more popular than growing y our own food. A world where women are born ugly and must be enhanced with makeup, painful fashion, ‘beauty ’ treatments, and mutilating surgeries. A world where it’s normal to use and abuse other animals. A world where 9 businessmen own half the global wealth. No, I don’t need to know who Trump is threatening this week on twitter, or the gruesome details of the latest school shooting. I'm not interested in who won dancing with the stars or who flopped on American Idol. I couldn’t care less about Justin Bieber’s sexy selfie or Taylor Swift’s latest squeeze… So. Much. Noise. What the fuck happened to us?! The truth, it seems, has been smothered by the lovely Kim Kardashian’s ass.
