Just spent an hour watching a documentary called "My perfect Instagram body" and it reminded me of the dark side of social media. Of a world where women go through several surgeries just to match the perfectly photoshopped bodies they come across on Instagram. It's sad to hear how many young women feel desparate and discouraged from just scrolling through their Instagram feed and all the beautifully toned female figures in bikinis it comes with. ...... To me, Instagram has always been a channel for inspiration and scrolling through my feed brings me joy. Thanks to Instagram, I have actually found a way to feel comfortable in my own skin, as I've come across so many amazing fabulous curvy women, such as the crazy gorgeous @theashleygraham 👋🏻 ..... I wish we could all see Instagram as a channel for inspiration, community and just pure joy instead of jealousy and feeling like we're not enough - because all of us, we are more than enough. More than perfect the way we are.❤️

This post is for everyone who thinks big girls shouldn't wear white. Who think that because you're plus sized you should be covered up. For those who think a woman couldn't possibly be beautiful, sexy or desired because she has a few extra pounds. This is for women who struggle to love the skin they're in.... You're beautiful. Size does not define you. You are worthy of anything your heart desires ❤❤❤ I wasn't born with all this confidence. It's a process and its been a long journey. But now that I'm here, I realize that I can no longer settle for things that don't make me happy. I will no longer allow people to steal my energy with their negativity and unrealistic expectations of me. I will define how I want to live my life. My happiness is paramount.

Welp guys, 2016 has gone down in the history books. I was lucky enough to spend this year continuing my quest to lead this wild, hedonistic lifestyle full of remarkable people, postcard worthy views, new experiences and all of the lessons life brought me in between. ____________ So while everyone is talking about a "new me", I'm going to take this year to instead improve who I already am! I'm going to push myself harder, take bigger risks, and of course embrace some falls that will teach me how to graciously get right back up. All while being the bold, fierce and fearless woman I am proud to be. Bring it 2017! 💪💪 ____________ Let me also quickly thank all of the people who made 2016 so special for me. To the ones who gave me a place to call home in a foreign city! To the ones who danced the night away with me! To the ones that knew the perfect restaurant and new dish that needed to be had! To the ones that forced me to step out of my comfort zone! To the ones that continued to love me unconditionally and support my unconventional dreams! To the one girl that reminds me everyday what true love looks like (here's to you @marty.mcsly 😉)! You make each year unforgettable and from the bottom of my sangria and sushi loving heart, I thank you.
