We look at our reflection in a mirror and we don’t get to see the beauty in our faces and bodies. Our eyes are blurred with years of insults and being neglected, because we never fell under the cookie cutter idea of beauty.

People don’t understand that I still get excited when I’m called beautiful or just simply pretty. I spent years looking at myself in front of a mirror convincing myself that I was worth looking at, feeling beautiful, and most of all being loved.

When I say that I’m not used to hearing compliments they give me that “stop-fishing-for-compliments-face.” As much as we all say that we don’t care what others think or say about us, we really do. I remember at one point looking in the mirror and seeing beauty but words that said otherwise sadly overcame what I saw. 

 I see all these fat women now and even better, young girls claiming their beauty and honoring their bodies and this brings ultimate and unfiltered joy. I tear up every time I see a picture of a fat girl claiming her beauty. I wish I would had done the same. I wish I would have known better.  Have we forgotten how much progress fat women and men have had in just a few years? How much we have learned to love ourselves.

When I was a little girl no one ever described me as beautiful. I always heard “you could be pretty” or even worse “you will be pretty when you lose weight.” These comments and many more similar to these are so damaging. These words of abuse still haunt me till this day. I’m still fighting those comments that once made me believe I was not beautiful. The only reason why I am writing these words is so that every little girl crying herself to sleep because she can’t feel as beautiful as her friend, remembers that you are beautiful NOW and you don’t have to wait.

Lets embrace our similarities but most of all lets celebrate our differences and our “flaws.” Whether they seem to be going through a bad moment and specially if they seem like they aren’t. If they were like me at a young age they will never admit they feel like this. I pretended that those comments and negativity never got to me and its hard to say something when you project otherwise and announce that you aren’t being hurt. Please share this with those who might need a reminder of who they really are and how truly beautiful they were and are. 

Opening My Dear Kate Panties!

Hi guys! Some of you may know already but I had an unfortunate accident and broke my ankle. I had surgery and now am in the process of healing and wont be able to be back on my feet for three months. I am closely approaching the first month and it has not been as easy as it may seem. Believe it or not the being at home all the time is the hardest part. So now that I am finally feeling good enough to do some work here and there, I decided to upload this video I filmed almost a year ago.

The great people from Dear Kate send me these Ada briefs for me to wear and enjoy! Here this video is when I received it and open the package with you all to see! The update from when I started wearing is that I do not know how to shop for under wear in terms of sizing. The underwear fit me a little loose but it was still very comfortable. The sizing of the underwear did not prevent it from becoming my favorite panties! I honestly am considering in getting more undies from them. Who knows I may even do a little shoot wearing my favorite undies? *wink wink* By the way does anyone know how to shop for undies online properly? Any tips?

Ada brief here!
