I got sent some free underwear so I put it on. In an alternative universe this photo has some long-ass caption all about the rocky road I’ve traveled to love my body. And yeah, that is a part of who I am and for sure a thing I could write. But also non-small bods don’t need a paragraph of words that tug on the heartstrings to justify being shared, celebrated and idk existing ? So here’s me c a s u a l l y looking up from my morning cup of coffee in my undies. Which I never do. Because that would be weird for @michelledufflocq and also it’s winter. That’s all from me. Love yourselves in all your forms and all that jazz 🤘🏼
Tonight, I am super excited to share a recent website launch for one of my fav clients and preggo bestie, my sister! We knew that she needed a new website that truly represented her level of expertise in the style world, and we turned to @mmodernweb to bring it to life!! This new virtual home allows Megan's community to truly understand who she is, what she believes, and how she can help YOU achieve your style goals!!
I just love her philosophy on style, that it starts with education!! Just like you learn how to ride a bike or how to speak French, you have to learn about style! Women often feel so much pressure to know their personal style, but it isn’t always inherent to us, and we have to start with the basics!!
Interested in learning more??Click the link in bio now to take her all new style quiz to help determine if you are in a style rut!!

The last couple days have been a major eye opener for me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am a sensitive soul to put it lightly and definitely get affected by people around me - whether it is by their energy, what they say or rather HOW they say it and their behaviors. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I've always known this and have always struggled with not letting it get to me. I get super quiet and observant, I take things personally and worst of all, I let it drain my energy and joy. It is the worst feeling.
It honestly took a hard chat with my mom today for it to finally click.
It is my choice how I let others affect me. In fact, my mom blankly pointed out - I am my own worst enemy because of how I choose to let these things affect me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Yes, I talk a lot of things through with my mom - she has years of experience and definitely knows how to wake me up, because I must admit I am stubborn as heck and don't always listen to advice I am not ready to hear. lol ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Going forwards, I will be pausing before reacting in ANY way whether it is internal or external, I will remove myself from the situation when capable, I will breathe in and out until the emotions I am feeling subside, and I will meditate to release any leftover negative energy or feelings. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Do you struggle with this also? If so, how do you navigate it? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What’s distracting you today? Stimulation is all around us. How do you stay focused on what’s important? Lately, I’ve felt very short on time trying to juggle spending time on my artistic passion, with loved ones and doing my day job.

I never expected to have to face the challenge of physically not being able to do my job.
I had always pictured myself doing shift work at the hospital, as a full time X-ray Technologist. But as it turns out, my shoulders had other plans. So here I am working at a clinic (less pay than the hospital), only able to work part time hours in order to manage my pain. And in turn leaving a gap in my income.
Happy Monday ATL Tiders! We hope your week is already off to an amazing start. Just over here reminiscing on the advice @truthandtaylor shared at this month's meet up... The experiences, services and decisions you offer clients/customers to think about are either in harmony or dissonance with your brand. They either compliment "the meal" (your brand) or they don't. Are you going to be the French fries now offered at Taco Bell situation 🍟 or the mac and cheese now offered at Chic-fil-a situation 🧀 ?
It's a beautiful day! The sun is shining and were going to focus on the positive! Just a lil behind the scenes news about us is that we're also planning a wedding! We're hoping to get married this year and planning is not always fun, especially when you come from big families! So we're focusing on the happy and hoping everything will work out as it always does!
Three cheers to everything working out!! Hip hip hooray!!
I recently sloshed my way through the Peruvian Amazon. In addition to seeing a myriad of cool and some scary creatures, I faced torrential downpours daily. The @mindshiftgear PhotoCross 15 pack was integral in keeping my gear dry and protected.

We have a choice to see the world as a peaceful place, or a hostile one. The choice is yours.

“When you remember that you’re riding on a ball in infinite space with a humongous star of molten fire exploding over your head and that simply being alive is a near-death experience, the concept of playing it safe suddenly seems as ridiculous as it is.”
Which area of your life have you been “playing it safe” with or putting off? It’s time to grab it by the horns and go for it.
Life is a crazy miracle and too short to play it safe. You can do hard things I promise. ✨
If you need a cheerleader, I can be that for you.
Ready to kick ass this week👊🏼💥
.... you know, starting tomorrow, since after a week+ of being continually underslept my body pulled a hard “NOPE, DO NOT ACCEPT” and i passed out for about 3 hours in the middle of the day. Cool cool cool.
Sigh. Days like this are honestly super frustrating but I also try hard to take the cue to listen when I clearly need the rest- and remember that one singular day is not the end-all, be-all. So here we go; start again tomorrow. Onward, upward, pause- (breathe) - repeat.
