  • Instagram vs reality 😂🤦🏻‍♀️ Capturing silly moments is just as important as capturing those perfect moments. Let yourself enjoy life and have FUN 👏🏻
  • Yeah, I’m fat. So what? I’m still entitled to live my mermaid dreams just as much as anyone else 🧜🏻‍♀️ Retro bathers by @curvyswimwear @caprioscaswimwear *gifted
  • I’m just obsessed with @fullbloomlingerie at the moment. If you’re a gal like me and struggle with big tatas, then I definitely recommend FBL. I’m an E/F cup and this bralette holds my breasts perfectly and it’s SO COMFY 🥰

I’m wearing a size 18 but they go to a 20 currently! Also a huge congrats to @curvyamelia being the new owner of FBL. You’re going to do the company very proud! *gifted
  • Often people tend to ignore their own signs that their mental health is struggling. Why is that? Do we not want help or are we subconsciously trying to prove we are stronger than we actually are?

Either way, it’s important to take note of how you are doing. Check in on yourself. Be your own support. Listen to your mind and your body and take action when you notice yourself slipping.

I’m lucky to have my partner to pull me up on myself but when he doesn’t, I have to rely on myself to get a grip of what’s happening.

It’s okay to be struggling. It’s okay to need help and it’s definitely okay to not be okay all the time. Personally, I struggle with my mental health a lot... I have borderline personality disorder as well as chronic anxiety and depression. It’s definitely a tough road and I do slip up and fall into dark patterns, but what’s important is that I realise this instead of ignore it ❤️ Reach out when you need help. People would rather listen to you than see you in a casket.
  • HEY YOU!! Did you know you can wear a bikini to the beach... no matter your body type? Shocked? Well don’t be!

You have the right to wear what you like. No matter how big or small you are. Your body is glorious and you are allowed to show it!

All shapes and sizes are allowed to be comfortable in their own skin and go to the beach and be the mermaid they have always wanted to be 🧜🏻‍♀️🧜🏻‍♂️ Take up space, show your skin and #loveyourbeachbody 👊🏻🙌🏻 Photo by @_chloesmithphotography_
  • It’s always important to remember that as a human being, we deserve respect and to be treated equally. No matter what.

It doesn’t matter what your size, age, race, gender or sexuality is. We each deserve to be treated with respect and compassion as in the end, we are all the same.

Treat people with kindness and love. You never know what someone is going through or what they’ve been through in the past.
  • I just can’t get over how incredible @glaminatrix_cosmetics is. Truly an inspiring small business. From hand making every single product to watching her grow as a business is amazing 🥰

I’m wearing the Sandra Rose palette and I used the shades “Leaf”, “Vine” and “Botanical” 🌿

  • When I was younger I was always such a happy and carefree child. I remember I was never bothered about my appearance or how I looked... because I was a child.

Obviously that changed when I got to the end of primary school when people started noticing my weight. And then I entered high school and there was so much pressure and a lot of jabs and bullying from other people - I did ignore it but it was always there, deep down, destroying my self confidence. I’ll admit, on the outside, I didn’t care. I would dress how I want but then there would be small actions or words I would say that let the strong facade crack. I was miserable inside and by my mid to late teens, I hated myself completely. I was disgusting to myself and would hurt myself because I couldn’t change my appearance.

Fast forward to 18 and I got into my first serious relationship and now at 23, I have never been so sure or so confident in my skin. I had been deprived of the self love and loving comments for most of my life, and now I have this every day and I’m HAPPY 👏🏻 I had been given a support system to lean on that eventually, I learned to love myself for ME ❤️ What’s one thing you wish you could tell your younger self? Mine would be to keep doing you and not let the petty high school life get to you. You’re worth so much more than that.
  • “There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.” One of my favourite things about the internet and @instagram in general is that it gives everyone the opportunity to find and create new friendships. Friendships that mean something.

Our little #bopo family is so special to me. We are always there for each other and we understand each other. It’s so beautiful that we can come together and be there for the same reason, and create beautiful friendships from just coming together.

I’ll always stand with my #bopofamily forever and always. It’s something so close to my heart ❤️ Photography by @_chloesmithphotography_ for the #loveyourbeachbody shoot
