I’m Luke Skywalkin on these haters. Splish 💫 People are always gonna be hating so might as well Jedi mind trick them, right? In the words of Teresa Giudice “haters gonna hate, but I just love, love, love.” Hope everyone has a dope skywalker-esque weekend... just don’t kiss your sister!
Cue U2. This binch has been in LA for a whole fricken year and still haven’t lost my accent, love of Italian beef, or my need to plan things in advance. This past year has been nuts. It’s been a year full of new experiences, achieving dreams, and so much damn Mexican food. I am so blessed to have had so much support from my peeps in Chicago and all my old and new le peeps in LA. Much love to my crew for keeping me sane through some crazy times. Choosing personal growth over comfort was tricky icky, but man am I happy I did it because I’m more fabulous than ever. A bish can’t wait to see what the next year holds in this desert-ass beach town. Spoiler alert 🚨 more tacos. Peace out, much love, and reach for the stars.
Love thyself 🌸 🌹 ❤️Everyday is like Valentine’s Day (with hopefully as much chocolate) if you remember to practice self-love. Remember to take time for yourself today, bish. Peep the link in my bio to read (a lot) about falling in love with myself and my self-Love tips.... and some of the best photos I’ve ever taken courtesy of @jessicahinklestyle These photos made me feel beautiful and taking and appreciating dope photos is a form of self-Love. Get on loving yourself this weekend. What are some of your favie self-love and self-care tips? #selflove#selfcare#curvesarein#novababe#nowrongway#honormycurves#beinyourskin
Can’t nobody love you like Im loving you baby because they don’t know how to love you like I do 🌹 Just a reminder that you are loved by someone in some capacity. If you feel inadequate to receive amazing love, it’s not true. Society tells so many of us that we need to change to find love. Society makes so many of us feel like our dating lives have to look a certain a way to be a whole person. But listen up, it’s okay to love yourself first and it’s okay to date the way you want. From a young age I was told to change my body and my personality for someone to love me, so that’s the narrative I accepted. That inadequacy ate away at me with low self-esteem and hella emotional eating. It felt that if I just changed my body someone would maybe love me. Chubby and fat girls weren’t lovable, at least that’s what media told me. When someone did show interest in me I pushed them away because how could they like when I hated myself? Y’all have NEVER seen walls quite like the ones I can put up, so I rarely date and I’ve never had a boyfriend. When I was younger this TORE ME UP; not only was I plus-size but I was single AF. I used to cry about being single and fat all the damn time. Even when I stopped crying about being fat I still cried about being single. The more I started loving myself and doing ALL THE DAMN THINGS, the more I started to not give a f about being single. One day I saw myself and realized, “wow, this whole time I’ve been asking myself why would someone love me and the real question is why wouldn’t someone love me?” It took me years and years of self love to see this and of course there are times when it’s foggy. But then I remember DAMN, I’M AMAZING! My single-ass has accomplished so much with love from myself, my family, and my homies. I finally see all the things that are lovable about myself. I finally know it’s okay to live the life I’m leading, single or taken. Fuck society for tell you your life isn’t whole or

You want to sit down but we hit the drive-thru 🚘 Yooooo, this past year has been a trip. Moved across the country, started a new position at work, lived out some of my dreams, and tried to stay hydrated. Through all the success and change I’ve had hella ups and hella downs. During a down, I decided to take a break from blogging to give myself some more space for self-care, but guess whattttttttt the bitch is back. Peep the link in my bio about this past year and how remember to show myself compassion helped save me from my bitchiest enemy— me. Whatever you’re going through remember to show yourself some love and stay 2 fat 2 furious.
When you’re 2 Fat 2 Furious to f*ck with the patriarchy no more. Resist through knowledge, y’all 💅🏼💅🏼💅🏼 Don’t let hate and ignorance win. America has always been a fricken mess and it will always be a fricken mess. Through that mess though has been the outsiders pushing their way through white patriarchal BS to make this country a better place. If this country can get through prohibition then we can get through this freaky man. We gotta support and love each other, learn the other side so we can fight it, and keep showing up and evolving.
Watch out for me, I’m bound to glow 💫 ... and it’s not just this Fenty highlighter. Full of that glow from embracing myself. It’s funny how the dimples in near my armpit, the roll of my arm, and my belly are all things that would have stopped me from being happy during the day and things I would have edited out of a pic (pre IG life). The flaws we focus on are often overlooked by other people. I bet a bunch of you didn’t even notice my dimply arms... you probably like this bish again with the highlight. Being cool with my body has helped me glow up and make space for WAY more important things. It’s hard to grow when we project our insecurities and assume everyone is laser focused on them. They’re not, and if they are F IT because motherfuckers never loved us. The negative voice in our heads and outright rude AF people are only a distraction. The glow up comes from you and nobody else. Take a step back and remember how far you’ve come. You’re here, bish. I can’t wait to see what shi I get into this year, “flaws” and all.

A rebel without a clue | Just hanging out in this very natural pose. Quick reminder of the week that you are perfect already, whether you have a clue or not. It’s human nature to compare ourselves to others, but don’t let the comparison go too far because there is no one else like you. You are a unique individual with your own combination of gifts and talents to offer the world. In LA, especially, it’s so easy to compare myself to others, but I dont know their story, what work they’ve had done, or where they’re going. We build other people up in our minds instead of building ourselves up. Let the sky be the limit and don’t get swallowed up by comparison because you’re already the ish.
