A little story about me, Katie (1/2 of @zionsdenapparel ), and why this brand means so much. When I was in high school, this guy that I had a mad crush on decided that the moment I professed my love was the best time to tell me, “you’re face is really hot but you’re kinda fat.” Yup that high school girl, her world was demolished. It crushed me for a while and I was like a size 12, curvy but fit because I was dancing competitively forever. It wasn’t until a few years after high school that I realized how insignificant that person was to my life and how insignificant peoples opinions are to my life. I quickly adopted an #idontgiveafuck attitude. I can’t even begin to tell you how much that changed my life. Out of that attitude grew #selfconfidence and love for myself, even still at a size 18. When nobody’s opinions matter but yours, it’s life changing. That’s why this brand is important + why I wanted to own it. Every single woman is beautiful, we don’t give a fuck about your size. We don’t charge more money for larger sizes regardless of fabric. You shouldn’t be made to feel bad about your body by paying more for the same thing someone else bought. I live in our leggings + want you to also. Love your body + let us put you in the most comfy leggings ever. 🖤✨

COSA PUÒ VOLERE DI PIÙ UNA MAMMA?... 👩👧👦 ...se non poter stare vicino ai propri figli e poter comunque sentirsi realizzata a livello lavorativo?
Questa attività mi ha davvero regalato una nuova vita ed io le sarò grata per sempre. ❤❤ Non c’è nulla di più bello di vivere la vita che si vuole, in libertà con lo spirito giusto.
Posso solo dire… 🙏 ringrazio il giorno che mi sono buttata senza sapere esattamente dov’ero diretta.
Rischiare è bello: dà gioia e dà speranza di una vita migliore! ☺😉 #BarbaraMaiuri
I wanted to take a quick minute and explain to you WHY I share my fitness journey and my changes with you.🤔 Last night I was on a video call with an amazing friend. She was talking about how she let herself "go" in a sense and didn't know how she got there. She told me that she was uncomfortable in her own skin and just had no confidence and wanted to make sure that her daughter did not have those same thoughts....😢 I wanted to CRY😭 as she told me all of this. It flooded me with ALL of the emotions that I had only two short years ago, that I lived with for longer than that, not knowing what or how to fix it.
I NEVER want ANYONE🙅♀️ to feel those feelings. If I can help change even ONE☝️ person to feel better and find their confidence then I am happy!! I share my journey to encourage people to know that if they are struggling with their confidence,their weight or self image etc, that there is a way to change that. I want for you to know that I have changed that for myself and that is possible.
I am able to help change lives, including my own from my phone and my computer, sitting in this chair. *Makes me even better knowing that I can help people when I am not able to interact with them outside of this spot in my house for the moment.
Seriously if you have no self confidence or want to get healthy, reach out!😘🤘
As I prepare to leave for the Dominican Republic on Saturday to co-lead my second annual coaching retreat, I am very present to a determining factor in life—if we focus on what we haven’t yet created or what we don’t have, we end up creating more of that experience. ⠀
On the flip side, when we focus on what we’re committed to and what we really want, we create new possibilities to figure out the “how.” ⠀
I truly believe that what you focus on expands.⠀
If you’re feeling unhappy in any area of life, consider ways that you might start moving forward… start by reading my latest article (link in bio). #unboundedpotential#gratitude#dominicanrepublic
Are you a writer? Did you ever write for a #film ? These are great tips from the best screenwriters:
📽 Decide when in the day (or night) it best suits you to write, and organize your life accordingly.
📽 Think with your senses as well as your brain
📽 In doing voice-overs, be careful not to describe what the audience already sees. Add to what they're seeing
📽 Forget the books/films you want to write. Think only of the book/film you are writing.
هل أنت كاتب؟ هل كتبت لفيلم في السّابق؟ هذه بعض النّصائح الرّائعة من أفضل سيناريستس: .
- متى أنسب وقت للكتابة بالنّسبة لك؟ رتّب أمورك بما يناسب وقت كتابتك.
- استخدم كامل حواسك في الكتابة، واستخدم عقلك كذلك.
- عندما تقوم بالتفكير بتعليق صوتي voice over، لا تقم بشرح ما يحصل على الشّاشة، بل اجعل ما يُقال يُضيف إليه.
- لا تفكّر بالأفلام والكتب التي تريد كتابتها، بل فكّر بالكتاب أو الفيلم الذي تقوم أنت الآن بكتابته.
Something that reaaallly gets under my skin is when people talk about or comment on other people’s appearances.
✖️their body their business! that person might be super comfortable in their own skin, who are we to judge?? everyone has their own story.
✖️healthy looks different on every body!!
✖️culture prizes beauty and by commenting on someone else’s, you’re just perpetuating the cycle that someone’s worth equates to their beauty. there are a million more concrete things that make up someone’s worth.
Resharing this and hoping you speak up the next time you overhear someone talking about someone else. The cycle of body shaming 🔁 stops when we start calling people out on their BS comments. xx

خيلي از دوستان در مورد مدت زمان ماندگاري رنگ، در اسكالپ ميكروپيگمنتيشن ميپرسن.
مدت زمان ماندگاري كاملا بستگي به جنس و نوع پوست سرتون داره، و بطور تقريبي ميشه گفت بين شش ماه تا يك سال.
پ.ن : البته اينطور نيست كه بعد يك سال كف سر دوباره مثل قبل سفيد بشه، نه، به هرحال يه سايه مختصري كف سر مي مونه، وباز هم از قبلش بهتره 😜
پ.ن: اينجوري هم نيست كه بگيم خب ديگه رنگتو خوب نگه نداشتي، رفت، نه، بازم ميتونيد بيايد يك جلسه براتون كار بشه 😋
درِ مركز ما به روي مراجعه كننده ها (جديد و قديمي) هميشه بازه. 🤗
پ.ن: ميدونيم آقايون (بقول يكي از مراجعه كننده ها) روي مو و ماشينشون حساسن، حواسمون به حساسيت هاتون هست. ☺️ پ.ن: همون قدر كه زيبايي و نتيجه كار براي شما مهمه، چندين برابر براي ما مهمه. 👌🏻
Keep going... Each and every day... Even if it is only a really small step... They all add up... And if you don't think it is worth it... Look back and see how far you have already travelled... Then look and and see how different it is from where you were... Then, keep taking those steps
LET’S GET REAL, LADIES 🚨(and hey guys y’all can read too)
We all follow fitness accounts, aka our “fitspo.” Chances are, you scroll through seeing those accounts and fall into the comparison trap. I know I suuure do🙋🏼♀️
I, on a *usual* basis, find myself looking at the pics of these fitness girls wondering “HOW do they look like this!?” Perfectly shaped booties, tiny waists, and bikini-ready abs. YES these girls are incredibly inspirational and DO work their butts off to look the way they do. But after (too much) observation, I couldn’t help but notice their poses. They don’t look natural, and definitely not comfortable. SO, I decided to try it out for myself... 👆🏻
Here’s what I learned:
I suck at it (LOL, obviously). It’s not easy to avoid skin folds while wearing spandex, and probably requires a very high-waist, flattering pair to perfect this.
It’s HIGHLY UNCOMFORTABLE (I mean, just look at my body going through all that distortion 😂)
It requires not breathing, sucking in, and flexing...all at the same time. No thank you.
It’s practiced and POSED.
So, here’s my point in all this. These fitness bodies we find ourselves envying are perfected by practice and edits. (Beautiful, trained hard for, and disciplined...yes), but require many failed attempts, rehearsing in the mirror, and the right clothes. In the “Instagram vs. Reality” post, they’re the “Instagram” ones. Remember this next time you find yourself asking why your booty can’t be that perky or why your abs don’t look like hers. The way you see yourself in the mirror is REAL. Not posed or uncomfortable. It’s you—the you you work your butt off for. Let’s all try and stop comparing and be PROUD of what we work for ✊🏻
Feeling in a funk? Overcast weather got you feeling 'meh'? Issues with self-confidence, self-compassion, giving a shit what people think? I dare you to play this song and not feel like you want to conquer the world and be a badass version of yourself. Just saying. I may or may not have just blasted this song and sang it with tears streaming down my face. And I won't make excuses, reasons, whatever for why that happened.
I make no apologies...this is me.

Happy Flex Friday peep! Got an 8 hour sleep last night...OK almost 🤷🏻♀️ had a few kiddie interruptions.
Today was leg day and I LOVED it! I have really grown to love leg day. It's where I have seen my biggest transformation on my body.
But today we Flex and we celebrate our bodies and you should too! No matter where you are in your journey. Part of a transformation is how you view your body not how others view it.
