Today’s outfit inspo is coming to you from Sydney 🙌🏻
When this playsuit arrived I thought it made me look huge but honestly it’s so comfortable and cute that I think just embracing it makes it look great 💛

Famous model Chrissy Teigen has recently opened up to fans about her own body insecurities, proving to us all that even supermodels struggle with #selflove . •
At BeautyCon LA this past August, Teigen expressed to fans that when she goes on social media, she immediately feels “insanely inadequate.” She candidly admits, "There have been times I've cried to John, where I felt like I would just never have 'that' body. I've definitely been really upset with . . . you know, everyone has a butt now, everyone has curves, and a little waist, and that's not me.”
Despite these struggles, Teigen fights for the #bodypositivity and #selflove movements, believing that the best way to do is by “lifting each other up despite our ‘flaws.’”In this way, Teigen has become an inspiration for both other models and her fans alike. #positivenotperfect#selflove#bodypositive#allbodsarebeautiful#confidence
I don’t know how to accept that there are going to be people who don’t like me. I feel this need to explain myself carefully and apologise for events I wasn’t responsible for in hopes of people I don’t want in my life thinking positively of me.
I often feel urges to message people from my past to make sure that they don’t hate me, even though, most of the time, they scare me with their aggression and I don’t think they should be in my life anymore.
I definitely don’t have the beliefs of those around me and don’t fit in in many areas, but that doesn’t stop me from wishing everyone liked me and saw me for who I am in depth, and the truth is that very few people will see that and, even if people did, many still wouldn’t like me.
I have very black-and-white thinking, meaning I can think very poorly of someone based on a few flaws, so I should be able to accept that some people think like that towards me, but I just can’t. I’ve never been able to.
maybe it’d be easier to accept if I had more people in my life who see who I am and like all of it and who I feel positively towards, but I don’t.
I just wish I was more resilient. I can never let things go and just accept that some things are unavoidable, and it’s hurting me so much. I don’t know that I want to be an over thinker anymore
Ms Miranda is one of the best flow teachers I've experienced. She makes my Wed AM @modoyogasydney brighter. ☀️ Her kindness radiates and reminds me to be kind to myself when I want to cry because sometimes you just have to balasana 👶🏼

Je me contrarie souvent, me vexe parce que j’ai l’impression qu’on n’apprécie pas ce que je donne.
Ce sentiment d’injustice qui vous prend quand vous avez l’impression d’avoir fait au moins de votre mieux et que celle où celui qui reçoit n’a pas la réaction que vous attendez. Vous attendiez plus d’enthousiasme ou plus de compassion.
Souvent (toujours) ça me chiffonne.
Jusqu’à aujourd’hui ou j’ai réussi à relativiser.
Je connais la valeur de ce que je donne, le temps que ça m’à pris, le plaisir que j’ai eu à le faire, et c’est tout ce qui compte ❤️💋 Bonne journée les chatons!
Ce soir ce sera entraînement de référence pour voir si j’ai progresser ☝🏽
Allowing the pain I’ve been holding onto since childhood to come out. Finally giving little 7 year old Matt permission to let out the tears, anger and any other emotion that I’ve subconsciously been holding onto in my body. Facing off with yourself is never easy. It’s really fucking hard. But time and time again, I find that the more I’m willing to go deep within and let go of the pain I’ve been holding onto, I create space to invite more magic into my life. This morning I discovered there was so much guilt and shame I was holding onto since childhood and I feel so free to let it go. I recorded the entire experience and will be including it in my next Vlog. Thank you @lukismac for the intense/amazing breath work session and for holding space for me to let go. Go check him out and show him some love! ✌🏽 #LoveThyself
TRIGGER WARNING: EATING DISORDERS
SLIDE 1: Do You Have A Body Image or Eating Issue? ( It goes from healthy to unhealthy )
Healthy - Eat regularly and when you're hungry; exercise to be healthy; feel good about your body; believe people like you for who you are, not for how you look.
Middle part - Always dieting and counting calories; using steroids; exercise only to burn calories; only see the flaws in your body; deny yourself food; feel extremely guilty after eating; continually get rid of calories; weigh yourself all the time; are secretive about eating; think nothing you do is good enough; people comment on your weight change; believe being skinny= happiness and popularity; create strict rules about food; family and friends are very worried about you; often feel out of control while eating
Unhealthy- eat almost nothing; secretly eat lots in a short time; hate your body and the way you look; see yourself as "fat" eventhough people say you're very thin
Tips for families and carers
1. Learn as much as you can about it
2. Remember who the person is
3. Communicate openly
4. Stay positive
5. Make time for yourself
6. Be patient
7. Seek support
Myths and Truths about eating disorders.
MYTHS- (1) Eating disorders are not serious, they are a lifestyle choice or about vanity (2) Eating disorders are a cry for attention or a person going through a 'phase' (3) Family, particularly the parents are to be blamed for eating disorders (4) Dieting is a normal part of life (5) Eating disorders affect only white, middle class females, particularly adolescent girls. EATING DISORDERS ARE EXTREMELY SERIOUS AND LIFE THREATING AND ANYONE CAN BE AFFECTED BY IT! NO EVIDENCE HAS BEEN FOUND THAT A PARTICULAR PARENTING STYLE CAUSES EATING DISORDERS. IT'S NOT A CRY FOR ATTENTION NOR IS IT A PHASE, IT CAN BE RESOLVED ONLY THROUGH TREATMENT AND SUPPORT. DIETING IS NOT A "NORMAL" PART OF LIFE!!! #intersectionalfeminism#feminismisawesome#loveislove#eatingdisorders#loveyourself#loveyourbody#youreworthit#happiness#yourebeautiful#everyoneisbeautiful#bodypositivity#support#educate
I walked past my mums room this morning and I could hear her talking to herself. She was talking to herself in the mirror saying ‘I have a body and it works’ ‘it carried 3 beautiful babies and it allows me to do such much each day’
She then went on to say ‘what a waste of time and negative emotion I’ve spent over the years hating on my body and wishing it would change’
What a wonderful message for me to wake up to.. this was so beautiful to hear and such a good reminder to myself and to everyone.💖
This brought me to today’s affirmation that I’m going to carry with me;
‘Don’t let your mind bully your body’ ✨
Right, sleeves are rolling up!
I’ve started blocking out my diary in small chunks and making non-negotiable commitments to myself.
Things that will revolve around work, fitness, social, learning something new, study and so on.
If I don’t, I find that I’m overwhelmed and my efforts towards any of these elements are diminished.
Some of these are half an hour, whilst others are longer.
If you’re struggling to fit in certain things that you’d like to, such as exercise or preparing meals then why don’t you block out non-negotiable time slots with yourself so that you don’t talk yourself out of doing a beneficial activity?
Start with something small and simple rather trying to take on a mammoth task.
I’m so disheartened that there were no models over a size 8 on the @victoriassecret runway... AGAIN! 🙄 Words I've shared to raise awareness about the struggle of being an 'Inbetween'/ #PlusSize model have been somewhat negative. But now I want to share something positive, because although the VS show still hasn’t introduced #BodyDiversity (MAD), little changes are slowly happening, and they give me the strength to carry on. 🙏🏼 // I got the job that 15-year-old-me could only DREAM of, last year....
As a teen, I used to save up for The Clothes Show. I’d get SO excited for the Runway Show. I was in awe of the girls walking; the confidence and beauty they possessed, the clothes... I wanted to be like them, but it would never happen. I wasn't thin enough (I’d heard that a million times over).
Last year, I got a casting call for the show. The first EVER year they were casting for healthy, CURVE models! I couldn't believe it was real!! I'd just begun pursuing modelling seriously, to believe in myself and my body. Then the opportunity for the job of my Teen-Dreams came up! 🙏🏼 On the right path? I think so!
After one of the scariest castings ever, I booked the show! My size 12/14 body, which had been rejected at so many runway castings and fittings before, for being too big, WALKED DOWN THAT RUNWAY!!
I remember, at one of my first runway jobs, the stylist refused to dress me because I was “TOO FAT” (a story for another day)... Now I was being booked FOR my “fat” body. *insert hair flick here*
It was monumental for me. It opened my eyes, strengthened my mentality, bought amazing people into my life, and gave me confidence in my body and dreams. After, I went on to shoot their 2017 campaign and walk again in the 2017 @theclothesshowofficial show! 🙌🏼🙏🏼
✨So, I just want to tell all the young aspiring girls out there, who feel they’re not thin enough to chase their dreams - YOU ARE PERFECT AS YOU ARE! There is nothing wrong with you, the industry is WRONG! It’s been hard, but it’s changing, for the better, because we are speaking out! YOU HAVE EVERY DAMN RIGHT TO PURSUE YOUR DREAMS, IN THE BODY YOU ARE IN! IT’S POSSIBLE!✨
This is the start of something BEAUTIFUL!! 🙌🏼
‼️T H R O W B A C K‼️ Ich habe mal 130kg gewogen und habe es dann geschafft auf 68kg zu kommen durch viel Disziplin und Sport, das war meine wohlfühl Figur, jetzt bin ich momentan irgendwo in der Mitte - ich bin gerade so gar nicht zufrieden mit mir, aber ich werde den Kopf nicht in den Sand stecken und wieder voll angreifen, aber alles in einem gesunden Maße ☺️ Man muss nur immer weiter Stück für Stück an sich arbeiten 💪💥 Es gibt bessere und etwas schlechtere Zeiten. Manchmal vergisst man viel zu schnell was man alles schon erreicht hat und das man darauf stolz sein kann, aber genau dann sollte man sich das was man geschafft noch einmal vor Augen führen und stolz auf sich sein!! ☝️Und genau das gibt einem die Kraft seine Ziele weiterhin zu verfolgen und zu meistern. Denn alles das was wir ausstrhalen bekommen wir irgendwie auch wieder zurück!! Also seid stolz auf das was ihr gechafft habt und egal in welcher Situation ihr euch gerade befindet, guckt nach vorne und macht das beste draus, denn das kann euch keiner nehmen❗️🙌 .
For the next week or so I’m opening the floor to all and any questions you may have regarding general beauty, hair, makeup and/or body positivity. I will use these questions to write my next blog post, in which I will answer them all as openly and honestly as possible. Please message, comment, inbox or email me any questions you may have. *All questions will remain anonymous*
