I clearly shouldn't be loitering this low, but is higher allowed? // I realized lately how many jean jackets I have, but they're truly classics. Fun fact: this one actually belongs to my boyfriend 💖. Also my skirt, belt bag, and the jacket are all various seasons of @hm // #sequinedstyle #hmstyle #onalark #sequinedtravels 📸: @natmazz . . . . . #bostonblogger #bostonbloggers #bosbloggers #ootdboston #ootdbostonian #portlandme #hm #streetstyle #ootdsubmit #stylemacarons #springfashion2019 #ownyourbodbabe #thewaylifeshouldbe #girlstrip
Ever look before you leap? As soon as I was up on the ledge of someone's office window, I thought: "I REALLY hope they're gone for the day..." // Related-- are window pics becoming on brand for me?

Happy @redsox opening day! I just love baseball season and have so many great memories associated with my home team. I think I’ve gone to a Red Sox game with nearly every single family member and tons of friends over the years. Last summer, we saw the Sox take on the Orioles, our family tradition three years running and I can’t wait to make it to @fenwaypark again! Are you psyched for baseball to start?! ⚾️ #redsoxnation #redsoxparents #redsoxbaseball #playball
Have you ever thought about how funny it is when we feel passionately about a public figure-- either positively or negatively? Like I will ALWAYS go to bat for @ladygaga , fight me 😂. I've seen her live four times and still cry (right, @caito27 ?). However, I don't care for Chrissy Teigen. I don't even know them! We people are absurd, truly 🤣. 📸: @natmazz . . . . . #sequinedstyle #assemblyrow #ootdboston #exactlylikenothingelse #therowhotelatassemblyrow #igersboston #dametraveler
Ciao! I sort of can't believe I'm wearing a crop top, but when I saw this sustainably made one from @cottonjunkies , I couldn't stop thinking about it. The quality is on POINT so expect to see a lot more CJ on here. Thank you, V! And thank you, @missmarypowers , for the intro 💖. Don't forget to #ownyourbodbabe 😘 // #sequinedstyle #cottonjunkies 📸: @natmazz
I have had more than a couple conversations in the past week about working out in a sports bra (this is where all the gentleman excuse themselves)... ladies, hi, let’s continue... so just as recently as a year or so ago, I would have been horrified to do any physical activity in a sports bra, then I landed myself in a Sade glow yoga class at Wanderlust, that due to poor AC, accidentally morphed into hot yoga, and I mean hot hot. It was about comfort at that point and nearly everyone in that huge class, started taking their shirts off, myself included. No one cared what anyone else looked like. No one cared how big or small each of us was. We were just flowing. And as small a situation as this sounds, it has stuck with me. As someone who is working hard at a positive body image, being OK with this body, being OK with being comfortable... it’s a big deal. It’s a transition and I gotta tell you, it’s starting to feel liberating. I still have a ways to go and every day is different but I’m here to tell you that changing my mindset and sticking to it, it’s really starting to work! Ok end the rant about sports bras 😂 ... #ownyourbodbabe PS. Thank you @withlovepeach for the BEST high impact sports bra for realz #withlovepeach #peachambassador #bopo #mondaymotivation

What is tall, dark, & brewtiful ☕️ You got it! This coffee in my hand 😹 I really hope you all have been having a fantastic week. I’m just so grateful for each & everyone of you ❤️ This little community of ours brings me so much joy 😊 Anyway there is going to be a NEW fashion post live on the blog tomorrow! Can you guess what it will be about?! 👇🏻 📸 @behindtheclick
Do what serves you GOOD ✨ As a blogger & in life in general I’m always getting invited to events. I’m a “yes, man” 💯 BUT that’s also an easy way to get burnt out 😴 I don’t want to let people down. It got to the point I was saying yes to absolutely everything that I wasn’t prioritizing myself 🙈 I’ve been striving to have better balance in my life between events, work, my personal life etc. So far so good 💃🏻 I think balance & doing what is right for YOU is a form of self-care AND SOOOO important. When you need rest take it, if you don’t feel like going to an event don’t do it, if you want to do something GO for it 💪🏻 Make time for you whether it’s a barre class, bath, face mask, run, rest, reading ETC! Tell me how are you going to make time for yourself this week?! 👇🏻 #discoverunder10k #midsizestyle #bostonblogger #stylecollective #bloggerslivboson #fashionblogger #style #fashion #lifestyle #selfcare #bodypositivity #ownyourbodbabe #petiteblogger #balance #goodvibesonly #positivevibes #happiness #blessed #namaslay #barre #rest #rejuvenate #peace
ATTITUDE IS EVERYTHING 👏🏻⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Today I really wanted to give Monday the side eye like in this photo 👀 I was DRAGGING & wanted to call out of work 😹⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ BUT I looked at myself & said “self, get your 💩 together & be the boss that you are” caffeine also helps 😹🤷🏻‍♀️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do you find that sometimes you also have to be your own cheerleader & kick that negative Nancy out of your head?!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I hope you all had a blessed Monday xo⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📸 @behindleweyes ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #discoverunder10k #midsizestyle #bostonblogger #stylecollective #bloggerslivboson #fashionblogger #style #fashion #monday #mondaymotivation #motivation #empower #inspire #bossbabe #girlgang #sideeye #coffee #attitudeiseverything #goodvibesonly #positivevibes #ownyourbodbabe #namaslay #bodypositivity #selfcare
I did some shots with @sarah.surette the other day and I’m not gonna lie, when she sent the pictures over yesterday, I went in with my judgmental eye. I didn’t like my hair. I didn’t like my smile. Arm fat. Short legs. You name it. 😑 Self Confidence and Self Love is work. You don’t just have it and it’s there forever. You have to work on it. Be patient with yourself. Cultivate a good attitude. And on those days when you’re just feeling meh, you can feel meh and that’s OK. Tomorrow is another day to turn it around. Today, I’m feeling better about the lewks I served so decided to share. 📸: @sarah.surette Simply Soft 180 Dress c/o @withlovepeach #ownyourbodbabe #selfconfidence #propahfashion #peachambassador

✨ your wings already exist, all you have to do is fly ✨ . You just have to trust yourself to take that first leap. That first flip. That first step. . Before class today, I spent an hour playing, practicing, and going over cues on the silks at @thecurestudios . . There is something so comforting about trust. . But that trust, isn’t always easy to come by. Today, I finally trusted myself to ALLOW my feet to do what they wanted to do - float in this down dog. . It took me by surprise, but I realized, that I fully trusted myself and I fully trusted the silks. Plus, the deep tissue massage on my hips felt awesome after yesterday’s class. . Allow yourself to let go of the control and trust the process. It will not be easy. It will not be comfortable. But I promise there is nothing better that feeling grounded while your feet are floating. . . . #selfconfidence #fitnessmotivation #ownyourbodbabe #loveyourself #aerialyoga #aerialthreeleggeddowndog #trustyourself #joinme #thecure #yogahub #yougotthis #mondaymotivation
#soulmatebody ✨ . I have spent a lot of my life at odds with my body. With its size, shape, what it could do, and what it couldn’t do. . Eventually, I got tired of it all. . Slowly, I started to relearn what my body was actually saying to me, and actually starting to LEARN how to listen to it. To let go of the expectations, and start to learn what my limits and goals were. . This body has allowed me to do so much, and today alone has lead me to a surprise Hang Squat Clean PR at @crossfit_133 & a little Buti Yoga at @thecurestudios. Its incredible what we are able to do, when we rekindle our relationship with ourselves. . Garudasana, or Eagle pose, is one of my favorites for releasing tension behind my shoulder blades. Garuda was believed to help humanity battle demons - and win. . We all have our demons. We all have moments when we fight with ourselves. It’s not easy to love ourselves. And that’s ok. . We all have that eagle within us, so let’s spread our wings together and commit to loving our #soulmatebody . Every Friday, @thecurestudios is encouraging people to share a photo and tell the world what you love about yourself. Tag your photo with #soulmatebody , and you might be a lucky winner by the end of the month. You in? . . . #selfconfidence #loveyourself #makeyourlife #snowyoga #yoga #ilovemylife #makeitcount #youcandothis #ownyourbodbabe #fitnessmotivation #yogaboston #yogachallenge #selflove #thecure #eaglearms #eagle #soarhigh #bostonyoga #yogahub
✨ do the things you love, not just the things you are good at ✨ . As a kid, my parents encouraged us to try everything. We did ballet, gymnastics, soccer, volleyball, swimming, basketball, choir, acting... anything and everything that seemed to pique our interest. . And slowly, we gravitated towards certain things. . So, began the “be the best one” part of activities. . Slowly we have all gravitated from things we LOVED to do to focusing on things that we are good at. It doesn’t mean we don’t work hard to be good at them, but somewhere along the way, we decided that being not fantastic at something we love wasn’t worth it. . I’m making the conscious decision to flip that script. . I love dancing - but I seem to have two left feet and the grace of a bull dog. But this year, I’m not letting that stop me. From taking my first class at @xtendbarreburlington with @krobsxo and @stylebyliv , to dancing in heels with @emilychandrayoga at @thecurestudios , to learning how to lift heavy things and put them down at @crossfit_133 - I’m trying to put the “I’m only doing things I’m good at” mentality aside. . I’m here to grow and dance my way through 2019... and what a ride it’s been so far! . 📸: @stylebyliv . . . #barreworkout #xtendbarre #newbie #dothethingsyoulove #bostonfitness #selfconfidence #ownyourbodbabe #sportsbrasquad #arabesque #beginner #alwaysbeastudent #neverstoplearning #fitnessmotivation #fitblogger #sweatpink

So having a conversation about what we present on social media- it’s not always what’s really going down, right? I’ve had a head cold for the past two days and have been wearing a sports bra and this shirt (to give myself a pep talk when I glance in the mirror?) ...my face is blotchy and red, my head feels like it’s going to explode and I’ve been whining like it’s my job. What I’m trying to say by telling you this is that you shouldn’t look at what people are posting and let it make you feel like you aren’t doing enough, getting the best stuff, eating the most perfect looking food. You and me, we’re all leading mostly normal lives, dealing with a multitude of issues and trying not to let the pressure (literally in our head colds and figuratively) get us down. Love ya, mean it. #shebeworthy #jordandene

L O V E • Y O U R S E L F 🥰 . . A little bit of a different transformation for you. I’ve been wanting to share this for some time but felt awkward & a little vulnerable, to be honest. . . 1st 📷 Me currently. A little fuller than the next picture but I actually have color in my face, don’t look like a skeleton, & am namaste 🙏🏻 . . 2nd 📷 Me in 2016 right before my wedding just after being diagnosed with UC 💜 at the thinnest I had ever been. But I was SO damn sick all the time. I’m talking like 🤮💩 My medicine was making me sick & the only thing I could keep down was BBQ chicken pizza 🍕I looked like a ghost 👻 . . Everyone thought I was on a “wedding diet” although I looked great in my wedding pics (thanks spray tan) I was NOT healthy. Although the pizza may have caught up to me I’m healthy, happy, & not so sick #blessup I don’t know exactly how I got UC it could have been the stress of planning a wedding & buying a house but whatever it happened 🤷🏻‍♀️ . . Today’s message is just to love yourself no matter what you are going through no matter what season of life you are in ❤️ If you made it this far the pale sick girl was a warrior 💪🏻 The current me is just focused on being healthy & goal digging while building a life with my guy ❤️ . . I’m on some sort of kick this week 😹 thanks again for coming to my ted talk ✌🏻If you want tell me one thing you love about you ! . . 📸 @behindtheclick (image 1) . . #bostonbloggers #ownyourbodbabe #uc #ulcerativecolitis #transformation #transformationthursday #stylecollective #bloggersliveboston #happy #blessed #healthy #fashionblogger #bodypositive #bodyimage #loveyourself #style #namaste #goodvibes #curvy #goaldigger
To be honest I have no idea what to say today 😹 . . So here is a picture of me smiling sitting on a table in my favorite faux fur vest. I want to share something positive because that’s how I’m feeling but I don’t know where to begin or have a witty headline to grab your attention #bloggerprobs 💻 . . It’s only the 16th day of the year & things are looking fabulous 💃🏻 My intentions for this year was to be more consistent & to prepare better by planning. It seems like the universe has had other plans for my intentions. I haven’t been sweating the small stuff 💦 I’ve been doing things that only serve me positively & I feel so 👏🏻 damn 👏🏻 good 👏🏻 . . Now don’t get me wrong, I’m still there for the people I love. I’m not being completely selfish but making these small shifts have made a hell of a difference in my attitude & just life I’m general 🥰 . . Tell me something that helps you get in your happy place 👇🏻 Thanks for listening to my ted talk 😹 . . 📸 @behindleweyes . . #positivepants #positivevibes #goodvibesonly #fashionblogger #intentions #goals #Wednesday #happy #blessed #ownyourbodbabe #grateful #shift #pivot #styleblogger #bostonblogger #stylecollective #bloggersliveboston #bloggerproblems #fauxfur #fauxfurvest

Yesterday I was invited to do a “test” women’s empowerment circle hosted by & at @thehealthyhairexpert ’s salon 💇🏻 . . Jamie had us bring in one ☝🏻 photo of ourselves which we were genuinely truly happy in 😊 I chose this one from my latest trip to Portugal 🇵🇹 . . I chose this picture specifically because I was being my goober self in my favorite city surrounded by my favorite people, my husband & family 🥰 I had not one single care in the world 🌎 Away from bills & responsibilities with little to no WiFi.

I wasn't sure if I would share any of these boudoir photos from when I modeled for @macheriestudios this fall, but on this last day of 2018, I thought f it! I am in my 30s and curvy and had never done anything like this before. And I would do it again in a heartbeat! If you get the chance to do a shoot celebrating your body (even if you never share the photos with anyone else), you truly should. Annika, thank you for choosing me to do this shoot with you. Your talent-- and ability to put me at ease-- made it a special part of the year! 📸: @macheriestudios 💁🏼‍♀️💄: @jannickewelde_boston . . . . . #ownyourbodbabe #sequinedtalk
Three of my top nine of 2018 are #ownyourbodbabe — I’m definitely looking forward to continue this way of thinking and encouraging others to do the same in 2019. Simply put, my old way of thinking isn’t surface level, it’s required some rooting up and digging out, if that makes sense. Should I do another OYBB initiative this year? Would you join in? #bopo baby!
I loved having miss @sarahjgaines in the #boudoirstudio because she’s so positive, uplifting, and inspiring! Image from her #boudoirsession with me! Look fun? Let’s chat about YOUR session! #bostonboudoir
How to beat the holiday outfit blues? Wear something you feel 💯 confident ALWAYS 💃🏻⠀ .⠀ .⠀ This time of the year can be tough! You are trying to eat all the right things maybe even workout. But all of the holiday parties, sweets, & not to mention the alcohol may have you feeling like a tater tot 🙋🏻‍♀️⠀ .⠀ .⠀ I mean like anything you should be enjoying yourself! The last thing you want is to feel self conscious during a yankee swap! I recommend having a couple of outfits in your wardrobe that you can always walk with confidence 💁🏻‍♀️⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Your body is a gift so rock it fabulously 🥰⠀ .⠀ .⠀ 📸 @clowphoto ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #fashology #fashionblogger #fashioninspo #fashiontips #fashion #style #styleblogger #fblogger #fashiongram #realoutfitgram #reallook #styleinspo #wiw #whatiwore #styleinfluencer #stylegram #bostonblogger #fashdolls #girlboss #stylecollective #bossbabe #holidays #bodypositive #ownyourbodbabe
Excited to start shooting winter #boudoir sessions soon! The upcoming season is a great time for a #boudoirsession if you’re in need of products for the spring! #bostonboudoir #boudoirphotographer #springbride
My husband stayed home from work today because it’s a holiday week and it’s was snowing and he just felt like it... so I’m sure he regretted not getting out the door this morning when I told him that he’d be doing a mini photo shoot for me! Guess what you guys? He did a pretty dang good job considering he was rolling his eyes the whole time 🙄— I just had to play in the snow and obvi I looked just like a ski 🐰 in my @withlovepeach ! #peachambassador #withlovepeach #propahfit #snowday
Guys, I just finished SUCH A HARD HIIT workout and I bobbled, missed steps, had to leave temporarily to wipe a butt but I made it. I’m inspired by all the DMs I got yesterday regarding the number on the scale — one of you responded and said it means nothing and you know what? It does mean nothing in that emotional and ingrained way we’re talking about. I went to 5 classes in the last 4 days so yeah, I might begrudgingly go sometimes, I might feel like this 👆🏼sometimes and I won’t always enjoy it but it’s never going to be perfect and it doesn’t need to be. Im working hard and feeling strong. I’m letting go of that emotional number, just thought I’d let you know #OwnYourBodBabe #propahfit
When your friends send you pictures of your picture in a magazine! Thanks @facefoodnaturalskincare for the snap of @theperpetualyou in your store! 📸: @right_click_photo #theperpetualyou #tpybehindthescenes
Never miss a Monday (for the rest of the year) 💪🏻 . . YOU GUYS! I’ve been struggling HARD to get back into a fitness routine I can stick to. I started going back to barre this weekend & I feel SO good 😊 I’m going back to the basics with eating healthy & exercise ✊🏻 . . I was my thinnest & palest right around my wedding 2.5 years ago. When I was diagnosed with UC & anemia. People thought I went on a “wedding diet” 😹 I was just always sick 😷 like puking 🤮 & other things 💩 sorry TMI but this is SO real 😆 It was the WORST. Now I was excited because I was SO skinny but I WAS NOT healthy. I’ve been used to a mostly white carb diet because that’s all I could keep down. Not striving for perfection or the skinniest I just want to feel good & healthy. (Not sharing for sympathy just if you are sturggling girl you aren’t alone ❤️) . . Anyway a couple of my goals for the rest of the year are to 1️⃣ workout at least 5 days a week 2️⃣ not drink alcohol (holidays, Ik I’m crazy) 3️⃣ stay away from typical pizza (cauliflower crust will be my jam) 4️⃣ stay off Snapchat to spend less time on social media 🙏🏻 What are some of your goals for the rest of the year?! Tell ya girl below 👇🏻 don’t beat yourself if you slip up! . . 📸 @behindleweyes . . . . . . #workout #fashionblogger #fashioninspo #reallife #fashion #style #styleblogger #fblogger #reallook #goodvibesonly #motivationmonday #motivation #styleinfluencer #stylegram #bostonblogger #positivevibes #girlboss #stylecollective #bossbabe #ucwarrior #barre #fitness #fitfam #workout #selfcare #namaste #bodypositivity #ownyourbodbabe

When I was younger I would never have thought about just sitting at a coffee shop to people watch - I would have always brought a book or my laptop, and these days we always have our phones for constant company. ⠀ ⠀ I would have needed these 'security blankets' for two reasons, one, so people didn't think I was a 'loner', and two, so my brain didn't have time to wander. These days we all have our phones as constant companions, and we are all guilty of mindlessly scrolling rather than taking in the people and sights around us - which I guess is Instagram IRL, right? ⠀ ⠀ These days I love just to hang out with my matcha latte and take in my surroundings and the people around me, and am able to see past my ego filled younger self who thought everyone was judging her. For real, other people have far more important things to think about! ⠀ Today, I challenge you to be without your technological security blanket for just 5 minutes - if you are grabbing a coffee, waiting for the T, in an elevator, any time that you would automatically reach and scroll. Try and get a little more deliberate with your social media consumption. It will be hard, and feel squirmy, but your brain and heart will thank you for it. ⠀ ⠀ #PeopleWatching #InstagramIRL #LightestBrightestYou
I’d be lying if I said I didn’t debate whether to post this or not. But then I thought 💭 what if there’s a Mom out there, or any woman at that, looking at someone’s Instagram or even MY Instagram thinking, “dang, she’s perfect. She looks good in everything.” . I’ve said this before and I’ll say it a million more times. Instagram, is nothing but posed pictures. Of all the things we want people to see. I do it, her over there 👉 yeah, she does it too. . I could justify this picture in so many ways.... but why?? Does my daughter looks like she cares that my stomach has stretch marks and has extra fat hanging on to it? I’d say N.O. . Mamas, ladies... listen to me when I say you are more than what you present on the outside. You are more than your toned belly, chubby belly, big legs, small legs. You’re so much more than all the rude things you tell yourself when you see yourself in an “unflattering” angle. . This body? Yeah, I battle with it some days just like you. But this body, it is a warrior. Just likes yours, mama. Own that body, and love that body. It’s the only one you have💛 . . . #ownyourbodbabe #loveyourself #motherhood #perfectionisoverrated

🦍 I partook in a meditation once that flung me into a visual journey as a gorilla. The drum beats synced up with my heart and that certainly helped it along, as did the fact that we were in a dark dug-out that was as close to the essence of earth as it got. . What I remember being so true for me throughout this journey, was that as this gorilla I could swing, leap and soar through the canopy of trees and branches like it was nothing. I could exert the full potential of my physicality, and I could play. . I frolicked and rolled around the mud, splashed through waters, swam, lept out again, swung back through the canopy. It was passionate, it was purposeless, and it was joyful. When we move in the full presence of it, we forget who we are in a heady sort of way and we play. . This was years ago, but what stuck with me was that primal sense of being. We may not swing on vines (not all of us anyway), but there’s no shortage of primal movement we can tap into. We dance, be it to a song, or sexual partner. We’re primal when we stretch out our bones, when we walk from place to place like we mean it. . We’re built in miraculous ways for so many things, but in how many ways do we stifle, shrink, and hold ourselves back? From being too big, too much, too soon. Too anything. Step out of the mind and soul and emotion of it all, and into the body instead. What’s your posture? I’ll tell you what mine hasn’t been - PROUD. . How do you stand in a mirror? Watch yourself in different poses and see what emerges. Watch yourself dance. Watch yourself have sex. We think about performance with respect to others as our captive audience, but what about performance - just for ourselves? . We all know what we look like when we dance to a song we don’t care for. When we commune with a person we don’t vibe with. When we walk down a street beaten down. And when we see or feel their opposites, it changes everything. How we move through this world is something of ours to take notice of, to explore, to cherish and use in a powerful way. To behold. Not just for others - for ourselves. *

Today is #WorldMentalHealthDay .⠀ ⠀ I've started to share a little more on my platforms and with my audiences about my struggles with mental health, and although we still have a long way to go to fully #breakthestigma I am so grateful that the landscape has changed so much since I was a teenager. ⠀ ⠀ I first struggled with anxiety and depression as a teenager, and this continued throughout my twenties and my early thirties. I was prescribed medications, but even before becoming a holistic health professional it didn't sit well with me and I would take it very infrequently. ⠀ ⠀ When I was struggling it would take the forms of extreme bouts of crying and an inability to face the world. My introvert tendencies would take over, and I would need days in bed not facing the world. I had incredible low self esteem that lead me to make poor choices in relationships. ⠀ ⠀ When really in the deep I would show signs of hypochondria and spend hours researching health conditions on google, and schedule numerous unnecessary check ups with my doctor. Even 10 years ago mental health was not talked about as openly as it is today, and at the time I did not share what I was going through with anyone. ⠀ ⠀ There were many things that pulled me through to the other side: improving my health, especially my gut health, reaching out to friends and family for support instead of pushing them away, building a career I loved, and yes, meeting my husband who loves me for exactly who I am. ⠀ ⠀ After the sudden death of my mother 5 years ago I was worried I would slide back to my worst days, but I didn't. I found a therapist as this was too big and too complicated to deal with on my own, and whilst it was so incredibly hard without it I don't think I would be thriving in the way I am today. ⠀ ⠀ Yes, I tell my clients to cut out processed food, take some supplements and get better sleep, but 9 times out of 10 I also tell them to see someone who can help them take care of their mental heal too: a therapist, a healer, a coach, an energy worker, who ever and whichever is the best fit for them.⠀ ⠀ And yes, I still take my own advice. ⠀ ⠀ #MentalHealthMatters #ItsOkToNotBeOkay #LightestBrightestYou
Have you ever been amazed when you realize how long you've owned something? This @hm skirt has got to be minimum a decade old and I'm fairly certain it was under $15. Still got it, old girl*! *Old girl could be me, the skirt, or both 😂 #sequinedstyle 📸: @natmazz
Oh boy— what a fantastic and full day at @wellsummit. I always come to this event to do some emotional work, digging deep but also trying to connect with people. Today, was no exception. Can’t wait for tomorrow! #wellsummit #wellsummittribe #wellsummit18
Am I a fashion blogger yet? 😂 Recently, I’ve been given the opportunity to wear clothes given to me and you know why I really appreciate this, besides the obvious? I see so many classically beautiful and slender women on my feed (and they ARE beautiful people inside and out) but I also want to see people who look like me, I’m petite in stature and curvy in places that are, well, curvy 😂... you know I’ve been working on #bopo this year and I’m happy to report that I’m helping others irl— I was blow drying my hair at the gym the other day and a beautiful woman was saying to me that she just feels so bleh about herself and she’s not seeing any changes. I looked at her and I said “I’ve been working on being proud of my body and yes I feel bad some days but we’re here at the gym, right? We’re taking care of ourselves”. She looked me dead in the eye and said “thank you, I needed to hear that.” So long story long, I’m trying to live the new normal and I’m very thankful to once in awhile be able wear some clothes and force myself, even on my bleh days, to be proud of this body and my place. Thank you @tribalfashionofficial for the Fall finds! 📸: @sarah.surette #propahfashion #mytribal #ownyourbodbabe #fitforatribe

So I was planning a post this morning of me looking athletic and outdoorsy in my super cute new outfit from @outdoorvoices. But, when looking back at the pics from yesterdays #CityEscape with @clubhighrise these were the ones that illustrated my true feelings: being mentally and physically challenged whilst still having fun, the best hiking buddy in the world in @whitneynoinstagram , the best hugs in the world from @sarahjgaines , and freezing my butt off at the summit of one of the hardest hikes I've ever done (and I've done a few)! Connecting with others and getting out of my comfort zone is still incredibly hard for me, but I'm not going to lie - over 5 years in Boston has turned me from a stuck-up Londoner to a high-fiving, hug giving, bring it on kinda American, and I couldn't be happier. Thank you to @clubhighrise for inviting me and my guests on such an awesome adventure and I can't wait to do it again! #GetOutside #FallFeels #LightestBrightestYou

Strength and power can manifest in many forms and it all starts in the mind! You can decide to put in the work and make your body strong as steel but what comes first is the idea that it is possible. If we watch people closely we realize that everyone has this quality... from the extreme such as Iron Nun who finished Iron Man at the age of 82 to people biking in the rain unruffled by the tiny drops of marble hitting their faces. People are badass! It starts with thinking you can do it!
Hi Beauties! .. I’ve seen a lot of new followers lately, so it’s time to make a friendly introduction 😊 .. My name is Tamy and I am the founder of Papillon. I am a mom to two rambunctious boys who are my life and my reason for everything! ❤️ .. I am passionate about wellness and healthy living. Eating healthy, exercising, meditation and self care are the pillars of my life! I not only care about what I put in my body ( ie: food) but what I put on my body as well ( skincare & makeup) - 🦋 I founded Papillon because I wanted to simplify green beauty! Minimal ingredients that are easy to understand and that work for sensitive skin! Also, simplification by having USDA organic certification on our products so customers don’t have to guess whether a product is clean/safe or not 🌿 .. My mission and my deepest heart desire is to redefine beauty, empower women and help them feel more beautiful naturally. Confidence is beauty and confident women go after their dreams and never settle 🤗 .. I believe in kindness to all living things, especially helpless animals! Animals shouldn’t be hurt and killed for our vanity and that’s why all our products are certified cruelty free by the @leapingbunnyprogram 🐰 .. I love traveling, reading and having fun with my boys & husband! ❤️❤️ I am the happiest by the water and I come alive in the summer ☀️ 😃 .. I look forward to getting to know you more, so leave a comment and introduce yourself. It will make my day 💕 . . . . . #thisis40 #naturalglow #30daysofsc #organicbeauty #wellness #brandsthatcare #cleanbeauty #womenownedbusiness #naturalbeautyproducts #organicingredients #womenownedbusiness #ownyourbodbabe #brandsthatcare #womanentrepreneur #organicbunny #leapingbunnycertified #momentrepreneur #crueltyfreebeauty #momboss #beautyfromwithin #naturalbeauty #womenempowerment #greenbeauty #greenbeautyblogger #organicbeautybrand #soccermom #healthylivingrevolution #cleanbeautyrevolution #sensitiveskin #agingskin #simplifiedbeauty
