‘You are all naughty. let’s talk a little bit. So, you have to choose one. Either you will get angry at people, who are not open and transparent about the work they have done for themselves. Or, you will get angry at people because they are doing their own thing. You don’t have both.
She continued, ‘I choose to be open and transparent about this kind of thing because I don’t want to be misleading… I never use filters here.’ I have not made any other modifications to my body or face.
Lightly invasive: “Don’t go under the knife. Nothing like that. The reason I did it was because I had this very stubborn pocket of fat and extra skin in my face,” she told her over 691,000 followers.

It comes after Ireland shared a candid post about being in the “most free mental headspace” since she packed up and left Los Angeles for the Oregon coast, where she now lives with musician boyfriend RAC.
Inspired by an Instagram message Camila Cabello wrote last week, Ireland has penned a lengthy post detailing every bit of her Problems with body image, to bad online behavior and mental health.
She said, “Being such a bad person **** and that I’m done taking so many people on the internet now, I know of course the heat will never stop being there. I know that the more I put myself out there, the more people will find reasons to set me apart. But that’s okay!!’
She added, “Of course, I’m not even close to Camilla’s fame, but I’m talking about every word in her post. The internet since I was a kid has called me fat, ugly, worthless and irrelevant.
Ireland has in the past been vocal about her battle with eating disorders, and said it was “sad and pathetic” for other people to tear up on the internet, especially “women who do this to other women”.
I’ve spent so many years starving myself, overeating, purging, measuring, stepping on the scale, spitting food in my bag, ruining my body all over the place because some troll told me I wouldn’t be skinny and pretty like my mom. “
Cool and Quiet: She slipped on a pair of hearers to match her cousin, and tried to laugh at the aggressive bandages of matching routines.
Ireland said that while she is having her bad days, she romantically loves food and takes pride in her physique as she is.
“Sure, I have my concerns,” she added. I know many of you like to assume I’m full of lip fillers, breast implants, and Botox, but while there’s absolutely nothing wrong with any of these things, I’m not, but hell! All you have to do is ask!
She indicated she was going to try an “in-office procedure” to see if it helped her insecurities around her chin, and was “rude” about the process.
And the coolest part, is that I don’t post revealing pictures, get treatments, and make a jack for any of you. “It’s all for me,” she said.
