Inspirational Post: Body Positivity

Hello Everyone!


Curvy girl :)

For today's post I wanted to do something a little different a body positive post. One of my friends asked me why don't post any body pictures like you post on Facebook on your other social media handles? There's a reason for that. When I first started Instagram I wanted people to take interest in my love for makeup and other things that I enjoy rather than solely on my looks or my body. Hence the reason why I didn't start posting body photos until recently.


The infamous mirror selfie 

Which brings me to the topic of body positivity. We live in a society where there can be pressure to look a certain way. I think this can affect anyone, but I know this is especially true for women. Women are constantly comparing themselves to other women or celebrities and may feel insecure of their own looks and body type. I think the way you feel about yourself is far more important than what anyone else thinks about you.


Is Christmas/My Birthday here yet?! Lol :)

Sure there are things I don't like about myself. People aren't perfect, but any insecurities I have I don't let it endanger my health or well being. I love my curves, and no matter what your body type may be, it's so important that you love yourself and have a positive outlook about yourself.


Happy Holidays! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  1. Thank you so much for sharing! Your post is very inspiring! I do get that a lot that I don't post enough body pictures. I realize that its because of my fixation on my facial beauty that I disregard my body's beauty. You've definitely inspired me to look at my body more positively and to share this beauty and to show that its okay to do so.

  7. I don't usually post body pictures as well, with the exception of my post-pregnancy series, just because like you I don't feel like it is the main focus of my blog. But insecurities shouldn't stop us from what we enjoy doing.
