This is a place of encouragement, a place to discuss body image, insecurities, self-esteem, and everything under the umbrella of fighting self-hate and finding self-love.

No matter what you look like, what color, what gender, sexual orientation, what size or however many "flaws", healthy, not healthy, working on it, abled, disabled, we are all human, we all deserve to be happy, we all deserve to love ourselves. With this blog you will see all kinds of REAL bodies, REAL people, REAL stories.

Just by being apart of the body positive community has made me feel so much more comfortable with my body and opening myself up to people. It’s not a quick fix, there’s still days where I hate the way I look and wish I was thinner, my hair was less frizzy, my skin would be even and ance free..etc. But I realize now, that’s no way to live. I should be enjoying my life and accepting the way I look.
And it’s funny, because never in a million years would I see myself taking pictures of myself in my underwear, let alone letting the world to see. I used to experience anxiety for doing this, but it really does help me. I encourage you all to atleast try it, it’s actually liberating to show your body off to people and really just own yourself.
Oh and if you’re wondering, the socks are from sockdreams. If you’re a bigger gal like myself, definately try them out! They have a variety of styles and fabrics, and most of all they are plus size friendly. I sound like an ad, but I really just like this store.

Punk is not dead. It’s Organic. The Spring/Summer 2015 collection was birthed by two unique thought processes, working together under the influence of one prominent inspiration; Nature.  Modern and minimal silhouettes were combined with design elements that were a bit rough and rugged through the use of natural fabrics, patchwork, shredding, unusual patternmaking , and natural dye techniques. 
The purpose of this collection is to re-inject art, quality and longevity back into clothing; important characteristics that seem to be devalued and diluted by the dominating force of fast fashion. 
Organic punk is about women returning to the root of who they really are. It is about the woman reassessing and reconstructing her sense of self while taking the initiative to live by her own rules, and doing what empowers her as an individual. It is this kind of progressive and forward thinking that we wanted to display within each piece of the collection.

Girls face so many challenges and people are constantly telling them they can’t do things, they can’t be funny, they can’t run the companies. My advice is just not to focus on anyone telling you that you can’t do anything or the politics of your situation. Just think about your art, or that thing you want to do.
