Justice for George - artwork by @shirien .creates I just want to say to fellow white people reading this please do the work to educate yourself on your privilege. Have the difficult conversations and for goodness sakes do something about it: call out racism when you see it, educate others, and demand better. There are steps you can take: research institutionalized racism , take the time to unlearn toxic white supremacy behavior, do the work by calling out racism when you see it. Listen to the black community. And raise the voices of those who aren’t being listened to, hurt, targeted, and murdered. We Need To Do Better. Steps you can take right this moment: Text FLOYD to 55156 to sign the @colorofchange petition to demand those involved be held accountable for his murder. Donate to @mnfreedomfund and the George Floyd Memorial Call or email the district attorney Michael Freeman or Mayor Jacob Frey to ask them to arrest and have charges brought against those involved for the murder of George Floyd.

Was truly honored to chat with @plusmommy about my experience and how I became my own best health advocate by standing up for myself by CHANGING my #fatphobic obgyn for one who understood my body and had a no shame policy. Often times plus bodies feel shamed and intimidated by doctors, and if you take one thing away from this chat it’s that you DON’T HAVE TO TAKE IT. Being pregnant is an exciting, wonderful, hormonal, and can be a fearful time of change with your body going through so many ups and downs while you are growing a human being - the last thing you need to be dealing with is someone shaming your body especially when it’s doing something so special and extraordinary! I discuss the misdiagnosing of medication I didn’t need but was prescribed to me because of this fatphobic obgyn’s assumptions and how this medication put my pregnancy in a high risk category because of the effects the medications had on my body while pregnant and so much more!

Feeling like a summery strawberry shortcake snack 🍓 . . So what’s one of the ways I’ve been pampering myself during this quarantine? Doing my very own set of gel nails at home. Long tips, pretty colors, glitter and all!! So many of you asked how I was accomplishing this so I created a blog post with step by step instructions and a list of everything you’ll need on how to perfect your own gel nails!

My temple is my body, my world around me an altar, and every thought an intention... . . . When @kathrynhack turns you in to a stunning work of art 💕 so honored! Such a fan of her work and if you haven’t been by her page you should go now and check it out!!
Suffocating within the lines society has bound us in, sometimes - those lines are meant to be crossed. . . . Was such a blessing and honor to work with the incredible @terihofford - as an admirer of her work being able to connect and #facetimephotoshoot together was a dream! We got creative and had a few laughs - can’t ask for more than that. If you have a moment stop by and check out her empowering and positive work 💕
You are the last thing to cross my mind before I close my eyes. Every night I pray that I get to see you in my dreams. Sleep Sweet... . . Shot virtually with the ever fabulous @katelynscottboudoir
A stretch mark for every breath she took, for every blink of her tiny eyelids, for every happy smile, for every tear she shed. These marks are the most beautiful thing on my body, some may find them ugly and that’s on them because this body was her home, it held her safe and secure until my arms where able too. This is the body of a mother and it is glorious. . . . Wearing @uyesurana red creme Stevie set
Took a break and kicked my feet up today... the break was much needed and appreciated. Amazing how a 15min nap brought me so much joy. What’s bringing you joy at the moment? I’ve been noticing the little things more: - Humming birds stopping at our drinking station on our balcony - Occasional Nap Time - Baby Boo’s personality emerging more and more every day lol the sass on this girl - don’t know where she could have picked that up at... - The occasional food delivery - Hubby making dinner All little things bringing me joy! . . . Also these #facetimephotoshoot ‘s are being me so much joy! This special shot brought to you by the Fab @katelynscottboudoir
And remember that happiness blooms from within and you deserve all the happiness my Loves, happiness tends to be my favorite accessory - how about you? . . . This set didn’t come out quite like I imagined but I truly love how these turned out! #mirrorchallenge - growing up mirrors where never my friend because I always cringed at my reflection. Now? Now, I embrace my reflection and worship it the way it deserves - rolls, dimples, stretch marks, cellulite, and all. . . . .

If I had a single flower for every time I think about you, I could walk forever in my garden... When was the last time you stopped to smell the flowers? Have sunlight kiss your skin? Taken a breath of fresh air? During this time it’s important to stop and appreciate the little things in life that brings a smile to our faces, we could all use mire smiles right now. Feeling like a goddess in this GORGEOUS set from @savagexfenty #SavageXIRL #SavageXFenty #ad @savagexfenty
Just a good girl with naughty tendencies... Wear sexy underwear, even if nobody is going to see it. When I slip lingerie on it’s not for my partner - it’s for me. Read it again my Loves, it’s for me. I wear lingerie because it’s a tool I use to help enhance my sexy, it helps to make me feel desired and irresistible and I wear it because I want too. The delicious fabrics resting against your skin, the sumptuous designs meant to entice, and the feeling that overcomes your body when that perfect garment just makes you feel like the goddess you are... Lingerie is an investment for yourself, a gift that says “I love you body, now let me adorn you in pretties”. . . Have been missing my pinup styled shoots so @katelynscottboudoir and I decided to a pinup virtual shoot! What do you Loves think? . . . Wearing: @torrid bralette, thong and garter belt @curvycoutureintimates , thigh highs @clubkixies . . . #effyourbeautystandards #plussizefashion #fatandhappy #plussizepinup #retrovibes #pinupgram #selflovetips #alternativepinup
Just in case it needed to be seen here too! These past few weeks I’ve read a lot of fatphobic jokes, comments, and memes about gaining weight during this time inside and becoming *gasp* fat. And I’ve had enough, just like I’m sure you Loves have... So here’s me wiggling and jiggling about in my fat and happy body because I want to. Bodies come in all shapes and sizes - and just so you know: you are allowed to be fat & happy, and in love with your body. Despite what anybody else tells you! . . . #fatbabe #fatandcute #pmmlovemybody #tiktok #whatfatgirlsactuallywear
