A tummy soft + full of stretch marks. (i'm not a work in progress)

Often women with bigger bodies feel the need to prove that we are worthy of existing by showing the world that we workout, we eat healthy, we love ourselves, we can dress well, we got somebody loving us etc but fuck all that noise man.

Listen yes, all of those things can fuel our lives but I'm not about that "fat sympathy porn" life. I don't give a f*ck what you think about my health or my relationship (or lack of one) or my eating choices.

It makes me want to put up a picture of me head diving into a three layer strawberry shortcake. Why? Because they are so damn good and eating it makes me smile on my insides.

Yo, we are worthy because we exist not because we can prove to others that we are "just as good as ___________".

Or that we are willing to strive towards being smaller so others can see us as a "work in progress" and not just love our fat beautiful asses just as we are. That cycle has to stop.

Go! Be healthy, be active, lose the weight if you want. But do it from a place of love for you, healthy challenge and not to seek validation from these fools out here. Value your life through your joy. Not this superficial lens of trying to have it all together.


Newsflash: we all got mad issues. And that's okay


I dedicate this post to all of our beautiful bellies. Whether you have stretch marks, rolls, bulge, extra skin or whatever. I dare you to take a picture (even just for your eyes) shifting the gaze from "how can I fix" to "look how beautiful is my body". Try shifting your efforts to compassion and gentleness and notice how different it makes you feel in your skin. 


In April I am opening the doors to "The Reclaiming Your Sexy Sensuality School™ " in Chicago. Reclaiming Your Sexy is a designed to help women have more confidence, better sex and unapologetic joy. The program is a year long exploration into the soul of embodying your sensuality.

The school combines: 

  • sensual moving meditation (think low intensity yoga with sexy jams)

  • Striptease + Floorwork weekly masterclasses 

  • Non-intimidating Sex Education Classes for Grown Ass Women

  • Monthly Masterclasses on Love, Womb Health, Manifesting, Healing Trauma & Much More with World Class Experts

  • A Practical (Aka Non-Dogmatic, Woman-Centered & Anti-Passive Aggressive Rhetoric) Approach to Spirituality

If you would like to learn more about the class and even get a taste of the experience I would love to have you sign up for the program info kit below. When you sign up you'll receive an invitation to join one of the upcoming intro retreat classes. 


If you aren't in Chicago I would love for you to check out some of my upcoming masterclasses and retreats. 


PS: Take a peek at my new lingerie line for plus size women : Gazelle. 

Currently I am making 10 spots available each month for custom pieces.
