Size 14 to Size 6.
In NINE months.
I bought these size 12 shorts hoping one day they would fit me. I was wearing a size 14 at this point.
I was NOT confident in my body.
Negative thought had been in my head about my body since childhood and it hurt to be in this unhealthy mental and physical space.
I made a CHANGE.
Started doing personal development while simultaneously working on my physical health.
BEST DECISION EVER.
It was hard, but change is never easy.
It also does NOT come quickly - it takes time. I had to be patient (something I’m R E A L L Y not good at) and diligent with the new things I had to learn:
➖what healthy nutrition looks like ➖how to make my self care a priority ➖making fitness enjoyable and a routine (I needed this)
➖prioritizing personal development
➖letting the past stay in the past ➖giving up those self limiting beliefs placed on me by others and myself from childhood
The change came and I was shocked. ———
These shorts have NEVER fit me.
I’m now a size 6 (I think 🤔??) and NEVER thought this was possible. I convinced myself I was big due to my eastern European heritage. But really, I just never took the time to make a change that would stick for good. ———
If I can do it, you can do it.
No two journeys are the same, but you CAN live the life you’ve imagined in your head.
I am right now.
I have the support I’ve been looking for, a way to eat healthy FOR LIFE that didn’t require gobs of 💵💰and an ever changing fitness routine I can take with me anywhere.
Don’t let anything hold you back from making those changes you’ve been wanting, we all have to start somewhere. So why start alone?? I have ALLL the tools you need to start taking care of you, so let’s connect. Send me a DM - you’re going to LOVE seeing changes from the inside out. And hey, you may need a whole new wardrobe like me!
✨Tips to get that perfect summer🏖glow! and a perfect Bronzing Coconut Milk application!! 🏝Moisturize- step #1 and muy importanté! Apply extra moisturizer to your hands, feet, elbows and knees!
🏝Exfoliate! Buff away dead skin cells to ensure that the self-tanner goes on to smooth, healthy skin to lengthen the results. 📅 Focus on thicker areas of skin like knees, elbows, and ankles!
🏝(I’ll be honest- I don’t do this, I haven’t found it necessary with this Bronzing Coconut Milk, but I did feel it helped with self-tanners I’ve used in the past!): Use latex gloves 🧤, a mitt, or wash hands ✋frequently when applying the lotion! 🏝Pro-Tip! 💁🏻♀️Work from the bottom up! If you begin with your upper body, you may risk creating streaks around your torso when bending over to do your legs and feet. And ain’t nobody got time for that, right?! 🏝Pro-Tip #2 ️⃣ Dilute over your joints! When applying to your knees, elbows and ankles, dilute it with regular lotion or apply a thin layer with a damp washcloth. 🤯
🏝Finally- Be patient!
Wait at least 10 minutes before getting dressed to avoid rubbing off the lotion before your skin has fully absorbed it. You should also avoid sweating 🚫🚴♀️and opt for loose clothing for the next three hours! (I apply at night before bed! 🛌 And Nope! It doesn’t get on my sheets!) 🙌🏻 Now, go get your perfect tan, girl!! ☀️☀️☀️

Imagine what you could be capable of if you turned that fear of failure into fuel for building an empire that gave women the freedom to build their dreams into reality.
An empire where women are empowered, supported, and cheered on while they give their families the very things they thought they had to give up.
An empire where women can give to the very things that drive their soul! .
I used to imagine that very thing. But why imagine one when I can build my very own! .
I have made my fears the very fuel that burns my doubts, hesitation, and negative self-talk. .
I AM building that very empire and looking for women ready to work for the that freedom alongside me!
Got to see my girl T-Swift yesterday!! 😉🙌🏻It was amazing!! And of course for the occasion, had to pull out a red LipSense color!
Say hello to my number one favorite pinky-red, Strawberry Shortcake!! And I lined it with Mod Magenta just to jazz it up even more to Taylor!! Paired with Pink Opal Shimmer, Pink Posey, and Garnet eyeshadow, lined with Onyx and I was ready for the epic moms-night out!! Gah! A red lipstick that can make it through dinner, drinks, a concert, and a long journey back home from a stadium of 58,000 people is just a straight-up necessity!! .
Woooo we made it to the weekend! What do you all have planned? You can probably catch a few of us enjoying the @atlantajazzfestival today & tomorrow. Whatever you do, make it a great weekend!
