Has Body Positivity Gone Mainstream? Are You Ready To Love Your Body?

CATEGORY: FASHION, LIFESTYLE

When I was growing up, body positivity and acceptance were no where to be seen. Women’s magazines were filled with models that all looked the same: Caucasian, skinny and bored. That was the standard of beauty in the 90s’ and I didn’t fit in. I began to believe that if I had to change myself to be happy. I ended up with an eating disorder, skin whitening cream, and acne breakouts.

Jump forward 25 years to meet Winnie Harlow or Ashley Graham in the cover of Vogue magazine.

Accepting yourself the way you are is one thing. Find your size and dress fashionably is another. That’s when Happy Size comes handy. This fashion label has been designing modern and stylish clothes for men and women of any size for twenty years. For this fall I picked these skinny black jeans and long-sleeve stripe t-shirt. Parisian chic that is not only stylish but comfortable and will look great with high boots and heels.

Life Is What Happens To You While You’re Busy Making Other Plans

CATEGORY: FASHION, LIFESTYLE

“Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.”

I got so busy with planning, organizing and stressing about it, that I forgot to enjoy the process. When Alex’s father passed away, I couldn’t stop thinking about life. How short and impermanent it is. And we forget to enjoy every moment. We stress about where we want to be, who we want to become and what we want to have, that life runs through our fingers and when we wake up, it’s late. Life is all about memories. Now, when I start stressing about something, I ask myself: “Am I going to think about it when I am dying?” And 100% of the time the answer is NO! I will not think about work deadlines and power games. In the last seconds, before I die, I will think about my family and the love I felt towards those who matter. SO as much somber as it may seem, it’s an exercise that helps me to keep perspective.
