    3 Books Every Bopo Babe Should Read Right Now

    We all know that body positivity and finding genuine self-love is a journey and I have found a good way to keep my journey going is to discover fellow travelers. So I follow loads of accounts on Instagram, I read tons of different articles, I re-pin affirmations on Pinterest, I try and surround myself with positivity as much as I can and I read books.

    Why I’m doing a shopping ban

    I am not even going to lie and say that this sudden ban was a choice because it wasn’t.

    March in Review

    This is a bit late considering we are already past the first week of April but I feel like I can’t let the team down by not doing my month in review so here goes. The year has sort of run away with me and even though I feel like I have achieved a lot so far, there is still so much more I want to do. KERRY TAKES HONG KONG You know this already but there is so much more to be said about it.

    How to Start Practicing Body Positivity

    My journey started by following the body positivity movement and from this I learnt a few ways to really start appreciating my body. By making a conscious effort to start embracing myself I got to the place that I am now – which is feeling comfortable in my own skin, not looking at my body with absolute disgust, feeling more free than I ever have and finally learning to live my life confidently. I can’t promise that everyone will accept you or that this journey will be easy, but I can promise that practicing body positivity is worth it and it will help your self-love increase by leaps and bounds.…
