    How much inspiration is too much?

    Let me start off by saying I am one of those people who constantly look for inspiration. I read and share the quotes, I scroll through Pinterest, I gravitate towards self-help books and I am a total sucker for an inspirational real life story. I have been in a bit of a funk recently, I’ve had no desire to write or do anything other than what is absolutely necessary. The creative juice is nonexistent and I feel flat. The thing is, I know part of the reason for feeling flat is because I haven’t been doing much so that has been quite a cycle to navigate. So I turned to…

    Being Sexy in the Body you have

    I think most of us have this perception that our body is what makes us sexy, and the body that we need in order to be sexy is the porn star body or the magazine cover body but that couldn’t be further from the truth because guess what…. YOU is what makes you sexy! There is no blueprint for sexy. Sexy doesn’t come in one shape or one size and it definitely doesn’t have one type of look. Sexy is a feeling that comes from inner confidence. I am speaking like I am a pro at being sexy and seductive and like I know it all, trust me when I…

    Practicing Self-Care Online

    The idea of self-care has risen in popularity and rightfully so because it is important. We run around like headless chickens most of the time so we need to look after ourselves and our mental health. I think many of us do practice self-care in real life but are we doing it online? The online world has become a large part of our lives and we spend more time on there than we realise because we often associate being online with being glued to social media but being online means reading articles or taking quizzes, doing research or shopping. What you are consuming online can have an effect on you…

    A Woman Changed

    I have ginger hair. And yes, that kind of changed my life enough to write this blog post, to re-do the whole look of my blog, Instagram account and my “brand” and think about even bigger life changes. It has brought out something in me that was missing. Let’s discuss shall we? I lost my dad a little over a month ago. He lost his fight with his brain tumor and I am still dealing with all the emotions that come with grief, but deep down I am happy for him because he fought long and hard and he deserved his peace. Now I just need to make peace with…

    How to Accept that Body Positivity is for You

    I think the biggest misconception about body positivity is that it’s for a certain type of body. I have had so many women of all shapes and sizes message me saying that they feel like it’s not for them or that they don’t feel like they can promote it or be part of it because they’re not fat. And this tells me that something is going wrong and that we need to check ourselves and make sure that we’re including everyBODY. I understand that the movement is predominantly promoted by fat people but that’s all the more reason why we need you! We need to spread the love to all…
