#TBT to last week when my hair and makeup were doing exactly what I want them to 💁🏼‍♀️ I’ve been so exhausted after our trip to Edinburgh on Monday that I’ve spent most of my time in bed trying to get over a migraine... normally I can avoid them now I have my glasses but it’s time for my 3 month follow up about the root cause of my migraines and check for the signs of inflammation they saw the last time so I’m hoping if I do need a stronger prescription that it’ll help me get over this! 🙈 the last couple of days have been spent with me napping the majority of the time and being really well looked after by Stuart so it hasn’t been all bad! ☺️ I did however get an interesting text today from the hospital and I’ve to book in for an emergent ultrasound. I’ve no idea where the ultrasound is from as I had my kidney one about 6 weeks ago so it could be a booming error or they’ve discovered something from my MRIs or there’s a problem with my bloods that they need to investigate. I was too nervous to call them up today about it because I’d just got excited about being done with hospitals for the rest of the year so I really don’t want to deal with any more news that’ll disrupt my 2 weeks off hospital over the Christmas period. I’ll definitely need to call back up tomorrow to figure out what’s going on and it’ll be a Christmas miracle if there is a booking error! 😂 at least if it is because there’s an issue with my pelvis or abdomen be it from the Crohn’s, Endo or bladder damage then it’s a step closer in getting my next surgeries and treatments sorted! I’ve been in such a better place recently in how I’ve been feeling mentally because my health seems to have stayed the same for a good few weeks and now I’m used to it I have a routine and feel comfortable that I should get through the holidays without too much drama but I’m really glad we didn’t book to go out the country for our winter break just in case and are going to Edinburgh instead because even if there is an issue I can get to my doctors no problem and won’t have to miss out like we did with Krakow in January! 🙈
I've always loved when people smile except when I did. Which is annoying cause I smile ALOT😂 Does anyone find it so easy to say something nice to someone else but struggle when it comes to you ? #bodiposi #femaleempowerment #learningtolovesarah #realqueensfixeachotherscrowns #loveyourself #femalessupportingfemales #bodypositive #curvemodel #embraceyou #nonairbrushedme #effyourbeautystandards #iamworthy #beautybeyondsize #edwarrior #recovery #plus_size_blogger #plussizeblogger #bopoblogger #girlpower #grlpower
Do you ever stand in front of you closet full of clothes certain you have nothing to wear? Do you hate every single thing you put on and end up crying on your bed in a pile of discarded clothes? Is it worse around the holidays when all you want to do is look good when you see family and friends you haven’t seen in months? 👗 I have been there one million times! And I have some tips for not only surviving but feeling awesome at all your holiday parties! 🎄 1. Accept your body as it is right now! I know it’s tempting to get to December and think about all the progress you could’ve made by now, but you’re not going to lose 20 pounds by your party on Saturday, so accept where you are at and move on. ❤️ 2. Wear clothes you feel good in. It sucks to go somewhere and be too busy feeling like you can’t breathe in your jeans to have a good time. I have some go-to pieces that I always know look great on me and make me feel good. I’m looking at you black @torridfashion skinny jeans. 👖 3. Remember you are your biggest critic. It’s highly unlikely anyone else will even notice, much less think about, your flaws the way you do. So your shirt doesn’t hide every little roll? It’s no big deal! Rock your outfit with confidence and your “imperfections” will be the last thing people care about. 💃 4. Just have fun! Life is too short to spend what could be amazing times making memories with your loved ones criticizing and tearing yourself down. I’ve been there, don’t look back and regret all the moments you wished you would’ve just enjoyed. #holidayparties #wearwhatmakesyouhappy

I hate to say it..... But I really like how sumo feels. It's actually making me really enjoy deadlifting again! Had a week off work and gym because I twinged my back at work but I'm back training super light until I'm fully cleared. #Powerlifter #powerllifting #girlswhopowerlift #thisisfemalepowerlifting #gym #gymmotivation #powerliftingmotivation #grrrlarmy #shelifts #thick #effyourbeautystandards #honormycurves #bopo #bodypositive #deadlift #squat #bench
I’m sorry that I haven’t been around lately guys.. I’ve had so much going on with my life and I’ve been struggling with some mental health issues. I have felt like life keeps trying to knock me down right as I begin to pick myself back up. I’m trying to be the best person I can possibly be, but it’s tough being the bigger person. Over the course of these last few weeks, I’ve let my depression and negative people consume my thoughts. I’ve contemplated suicide - something I haven’t thought about in six years - due to how BAD life has been these last two weeks. Today, I got up and decided that I’m not going to let my depression control my life, and I’m not going to let the opinions of a few family members have that affect on me anymore. I cannot simply cut ties with these people, but I will no longer allow them close to me.
it’s been awhile since I’ve admired my strength...so here it goes😉 . . . #Wcw #wce #cardib #plussizewomen #bodypositive #effyourbeautystandards #women #loveself #triller #curvy #myfavoritepart #hiphop #nyc #viral #shaderoom

I brought a 30-day homeopathic cleanse kit on this trip because I decided I’d had my fair share of indulging over the past few months and considering I was going to be in a bikini for the foreseeable future it was time to get real again in the health department... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Well, I made it 3 days. 3 very lame days of constantly feeling like I was missing out on living fully in Mexico until I said “To hell with this!” and returned happily to my passionfruit margaritas and nachos on the beach. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ During my years struggling with an eating disorder everything around food was so black and white. I was either being “good” or “bad.” Today, I don't want rules. I don't want to be restricted. I definitely want to be mindful of fueling my body with healthy food as much as possible, but I also want to fully experience the richness of new cultures, and for me, a huge part of that is food…some of it being very gluten and dairy and sugar filled! It’s suchhhh an amazing relief to finally be in a place where I can truly say I’d rather get to eat the melt-in-your-mouth delicious (gluteny) churros whenever I feel like it than be 5 or 10 lbs. skinnier. There is SO much more to life than obsessing over physical appearance! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I love that I can go to yoga, eat a healthy veggie stir fry for dinner, and then get out of bed a couple hours later to go to the corner store in my pjs to buy jalapeño chips because they would make my bedtime reading extraaa enjoyable! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ These days happiness for me comes from living fully, without guilt. It’s a pretty fun place to be! Join me? With light and love, Sarah xo
. F E M I N I S M : I am a spiritual being born into the world as a woman and an afakasi. : I have been called to reawaken the indigenous ways of healing and connection with Universe, Gaia, Goddess, Divine, Great Spirit. : I am proud of my Samoan roots and my Scotch-Irish, German roots. But neither are above my experience as a WOMXN on this earth and the resurgence of the feminine. : In life there is need for balance - yin and yang, moon and sun, dark and light. For generations now we have been experiencing the consequences of being out of balance through the patriarchy which has plagued our species, the guardians of this planet. We have been burned and scorched by the sun, not allowing the darkness and moon to rest and nurture ourselves and each other. This is the work of feminism - to rebuild the strength of women and all those connected with their feminine side in order to restore balance. This does not come in the form of being polite. It comes in the form of the Tower Card, wrecking the old to rebuild the new. Feminism happens on many different platforms and I am eternally grateful for my sisters (including my male and non-binary sisters) who fight the good fight in their own way. : My fight in feminism is in rebuilding women’s spirituality using indigenous wisdom - to unearth the tools we need as womxn to connect to Goddess and Gaia so that we may be spiritually aligned with our mission in restoring balance to this earthly experience and create a SAFE SPACE for those who follow us. : #mystic #womyn #feminism #feminist #witch #samoa #spiritwoman #indigenous #native #medicinewoman #sacred #spiritual #samoan #selflove #effyourbeautystandards #mysticmalu #spiritual #tarotreading #magic #wildwoman #womensempowerment #tarot #goddess #indigenouswomen #womxn #afakasi #malu #sisterhood #wildwoman #warriorwoman

This was the day someone told me I "dance for attention". Yeah right! I dance a certain way because I like it. I dance a certain way to express myself. I dance a certain way to express my freedom.. Cz dance floor is one of the few places I can let everything go. I dance like no one is watching me. I dance without giving a single fuck. I enjoy every second on the floor because I let myself loose there. You know what's common in all these reasons? NONE OF THEM INCLUDE YOU. Stop slut shaming girls every chance you get. Stop shaming them for simply having fun. Stop shaming them for being themselves. And one great life hack: Do Not Say Anything If You Have Nothing Nice To Say. Sometimes words do speak the loudest and comments like these can make someone feel absolutely crap about themselves. Don't be the person who does that to other people. Live and Let Live ❤️ . . . . . . . . . . . . #bodypositive #bopo #bodypositivity #bodyacceptance #bodyposi #psblogger #plussizeblogger #positivethoughts #positivemindset #positivevibes #pink #pinkdress #curls #wavyhair #womenempoweringwomen #womenpower #wavyhair #womenempowerment #feminista #feminism #feminist #lifequotes #live #liveandletlive #curvy #plussizefashion #curvywoman #curvyfashion #effyourbeautystandards
I’m not going to lie and say that I am anywhere near confident and accepting of this photo. I’m not. I nowhere near being in love with my body, but I’m ready to put in the work. Posting this feels like ripping off that bandaid. . . “Here world! Just look and see all the parts that I am terrified to show.” . . I’ve spent nearly 35 years wishing to be different in some way. In middle school I wished to be less skinny and boney. In high school I wished to be less tall. In college I wished to be less soft. During pregnancy I wished to be less big. . . It’s time to change this relationship. . . Step 1. I’m going to stop wishing for my body to be less than anything it already is. . . I’m 6ft tall and 180lbs. I have gained, and lost, 120 lbs over the last 7 years. I have given birth to 28 lbs of human. I ran a half marathon. I’ve played 4 years of varsity basketball. I’ve worked out. I am training to be a yoga teacher. . . This body has been good to me and it’s time I start returning the favor. 2019 is going to be all about treating myself right. Eliminating negative self-talk and embracing who I am in the present moment. . . I wanted to post this for any woman who has looked at herself—or looks at herself now—and is disappointed in what she sees. For any woman who feels unworthy because of something that society tells her is a flaw. For anyone feeling stuck. I am with you. I am hoping that this vulnerable moment will give you a bit of peace ❤️

Really grateful to folks who trust me enough to take their intimate photos. I work extra hard to provide safety, compassion, and comfort during sessions because I understand how vulnerable sharing your body with others behind a lens can be. I appreciate everyone who has chosen me as the medium for this special gift to themselves. You are so loved.
It's just another night, and I'm staring at the moon I saw a shooting star and thought of you I sang a lullaby by the waterside and knew If you were here, I'd sing to you You're on the other side, as the skyline splits in two♥️ #longdistancerelationship #ldr #longdistance #missinghim #selfie #fatbabe #fatgirl #fatshion #motd #makeupoftheday #bigandbeautiful #bbw #bbwgirls #bigandblunt #bbws #ssbbw #girlswithtattoos #honormycurves #effyourbeautystandards #makeyourownsparkle #pizzasisters4lyfe #goldenconfidence #plussize #plussizemodel #plussizemodels #plussizestyle #plussizefashion #plussizeblogger #plussizewomen #plus

honestly ive always had a decently healthy relationship with my body, but this is the most healthy love ive had for my body. when i was 13 or so i remember buying cellulite cream for my thighs. like... i clearly did not know what cellulite really was lmfao.
i think everyone has their own journey of self love. ive been in relationships with ppl (friends, family, lovers) that either made ppl feel bad about body hair, or made ME feel bad about it. + now, im in the healthiest relationship ive had, friend+lover wise, that ive had in the longest. + he understands my journey of self love. i would shave my under arms so much i would get constant painful cysts and honestly ive never been this comfortable with my body hair, not to say ill keep this up forever, but im getting more + more comfortable with not always needing to get rid of my hair.
This is the end of a very productive week! Always surround yourself with great people... Have a good weekend guys...!!! 😁🇧🇪#redtogether #belgium #lukebakio #focus
