Hi! I'm a 23-year-old blogger living in Ljubljana. Stylist and video maker, currently running

Hi, My name is Ana and I suffer from a serious RBF.

Yeah, you read that right. People say I have a serious RBF, which is always commented on, so that's the reason I'm writing this post. But first of all, let me explain what RBF really is. When you google the term, this is the first definition that pops up:

"Resting bitch face, also known as RBF or bitchy resting face, is a term for a facial expression (or lack thereof) which unintentionally appears angry, annoyed, irritated, or contemptuous." 

You all probably think, Ana this can't be that serious or problematic. But trust me it actually is, at least to me. Imagine that your normal daily routine is constructed of the following questions or comments: 

How are you Ana? 
Are you feeling ok? 
You look sad/angry... what's wrong? 
Did you sleep well? 
Who made you mad? 
You look very bitchy today. 

Yeah, this is exactly what I hear on a daily basis, when I feel perfectly fine and happy. This is what my face apparently expresses. Imagine people avoiding or hating on you, because you don't look happy. People always say I should smile more and not to be that serious, but to be honest, I can't do anything about it. It's a natural thing and not something I do on purpose. My face was obviously made for that! Also people say that my RBF is on a "whole nother level", so Jesus take the wheel and help me (haha).
It's much more common than you actually think it is. But even though this shouldn't be a thing in the first place, I also have some advice for all my fellow RBF ladies. I know we can't always control our face expressions, but when you catch yourself in that "relaxed mood" I like to call it, try to smile a bit. Even though it might feel very unnatural, you will get the hang of it and it'll quickly become a habit. I always like to use these tips when I take outfit pictures, but I constantly fail at it, as you may have figured it out. But practice makes perfect and I will get better at it.
It really feels good to get everything off the chest. And today, for a change, I'm going to post a smiling picture. Because it expresses the same way I feel on the inside. Even though I might not be smiling 24/7. Keep that in mind...
And for my final note, there is always a silver lining in every situation. On the bright side you're always (what I call) runway ready with that RBF. So it's not all that bad :)

  2. Compound sporting activities are physical activities that contain 2 or more joint actions and thereby employing larger muscle mass and greater synergistic muscle tissues to boot. Bench presses, dead lifts, squats, and chin u.s.a.amongst others are super compound physical games.
