💫Warning: Long post ahead💫
I was contacted by a local NZ mag - Woman’s Day, interested in my story about what makes me confident for their “body positivity” article. I asked the journalist a few questions to see if she was the right fit for representing ME. She had convinced me that she suffered from postpartum body issues and was writing to help empower females. In return she asked me a couple of questions to see if i was also a fit for the group of woman she had in mind.
I participated in a photoshoot, but there was no interview. I didn’t sign anything or see anything in writing to confirm what would be written. I thought maybe some questions must be coming later on? Boy was I wrong!! 🤬🤬 (Bloody Baskets!!) Two weeks later and this article was printed!! She had taken some of my words and made up her own version of MY story!! 😡😡 So i’m here to set the record straight👊💥 -
1 - My name is Anita-Corey Tuimauga (Pic 1) not Shauni Wallace (Pic 2). (The least they could have done is match the articles with the correct photos)
2 - I was born and bred in Auckland, NZ. I am a Kiwi but am also from the Pacific Islands. I did NOT “come from the pacific islands to find myself in an all Pakeha school”. _
3 - From the ages of 7-12yrs i considered myself a ‘Tom Boy’. I liked 3/4 board shorts that went past my knees, baggy t-shirts, silver puffy vests and high strappy pumps with my hair in a low pony. 😂😎 I actually believed my style was cool. It was NOT “a bid to avoid my tormentors”
4 - I was NEVER bullied for the way I looked as a kid!! For the record..I was once punched in the face by a boy when I was 8years old but for not giving him a tennis ball.
5 - In college (13-17 yrs) I was introduced to the sport ‘Waka Ama’ (Outrigging). The college and sport along with my amazing coaches and mentor changed my life! Some of the key role models I met were fundamental in teaching me life morals like having a positive attitude, team work, training hard and basically to not give a crap about what others have to say about you.
6 - I 100% felt comfortable wearing dresses “pre-20’s”. 🙄🙄(See photo 3 & 4)

Some days I wake up and love my social media feeds and incoming emails. Other days, I scroll and scroll and scroll seeing the same stuff. The same message. The same content. Everyone trying to get somebody’s attention. If I was completely honest, I would let you know how daunting it is. If I were bold enough I would tell you, I have a message I am trying to get out too. A message I know is worthy and needed. A message that encourages others to transform their life.
Some days I just don’t know how to do that. Some days I just do not know how to stress the urgency enough. Some days I just rather sink into my introverted self.
But my urgency rises.....
The urgency of “this is your one life” and I DON’WANT YOU TO MISS IT! I don’t want you to miss it because of limiting beliefs and self sabotage. I don’t want you to miss it because of sadness and anxiety. I don’t want you to miss it due to fear that keeps you stuck. I don’t want you to miss it because you feel you are not enough.
So until tomorrow when hopefully I will have something much more put together to say, I’ll stick with this....
Don’t miss it! It’s right now. Today! #introvertproblems#resilience#coach#socialmediamarketing#truth#unfiltered#message#lifecoach#keepingitreal#speakyourself#tuesday#differencemaker#tomorrow#mystory#keepatit
So people have been lovely about my last picture and I really appreciate it, I posted it because it reminds me of a day where I felt really great about myself and I’ve been feeling pretty crappy recently as I’ve been tucked up in bed sick as a dog and looking like crap!
But as much as I love that made up version of me I also strive so much to love the me in my pjs with my temperamental skin trying not to cough my guts up.
So I’m going to give that girl some love too. X
I’ve been steeping vanilla bean pods for a year now, almost ready to release as an artisan small batch Queensland organically grown, hand pollinated, naturally cured, 1 year vintage of unfiltered vanilla extract.
This picture is of the beginning of the next small batch process, under 5L and will soon turn an amazing rich chocolate colour with an aroma to knock your socks off!

This was the best birthday present of my entire life. Mom told me what I wanted most in this world, and I said... I want a chain with the initials of the woman who inspired me to write, if you know his name ?. Is that woman with the beautiful eyes and the shocking book ?, If she is. The woman who has inspired me most in my life. The one that inspired me to write, that's you. The one that has made me feel a feeling that I can not describe, is you. The person that I admire day by day. #UNFILTERED , I confess, what I loved most about you. #ToTheBone , you were my favorite actress, and from there I fell in love with you, your courage, your courage, your way of interpreting. The one that with small words can make you feel thousands of emotions, that's you. Unique as you are, thank you for existing. #LesMiserables , a few hours ago, my heart was filled with love and pride, I am so eager to see you again on the screen, I can not wait !!!. The point is that (Lily Jane Collins), you have made me the happiest fan in the universe. And of course, if I admire such an inspiring woman, like you @lilycollins.
