gender non-conforming people have always been the vanguard of beauty & fashion. for too long our aesthetics have been taken & decontexualized from our bodies & struggles. they point their fingers at us on the streets & then they go home & use those same fingers to order outfits like ours online. disgust, like desire, is a matter of fixation. how many disappeared gender non-conforming trans femmes does it take to produce a cis woman diva? why do you continue to celebrate cis mediocrity rather than invest in gender non-conforming fabulosity? we are the original. it is time we get the recognition & compensation we deserve. wearing CRUELLA a cape i designed with @adrianne.ayao 📷 @rehes out takes for @bust_magazine
You mourn the loss. Yes. And that mourning and grief is for the loss of yourself.
Do you feel like that’s a bunch of BS?
Then think, feel and see how everything happens in your brain.
The connection and association are all there in your brain.
You are mourning for your associations and neurological pathways.
These neurological pathways were key to feeling happiness.
It was part of your identity.
It was part of who you were.
And you feel the loss of that part of yourself that is no longer part of you.
What part of yourself you’ve buried deep within?
That you don’t want to recognise because it feels sad or deeply distressing or simply you don’t wanna face it.
If you wanna do so on autopilot, I’ve a free gift for you. Link in the bio will get you started.
See you inside stud

Cette paire de clichés pris totalement à l'arrache alors que j'étais grave à la bourre pour ce shooting même pas prévu lors d'une belle journée ensoleillée dans le centre de Lille. Tout ce pavé pour remercier de tout cœur ce privilège d'exclusivité et de spontanéité que m'offre @aline_mcx, à chaque fois. Tous nos shootings sont différents et apportent quelque chose de spécial 🤩, plus de confiance, plus d'amitié et surtout plus de naturel. Je bénis ce type de collaboration et si vous n'en avez pas encore marre de voir nos travaux, sachez que beaucoup, mais alors BEAUCOUP de photos sont encore à publier (et je ne shoot pas en rafale moi 🤭).
On vous remercie pour votre soutient ✌️
Si toi aussi tu veux shooter, contacte-moi et surtout, petit conseil : c'est en mode dernière minute que c'est le plus fun 😉
Confidence is the sexiest thing a woman can wear 🔥
#Lularoe , bold lip color and some killer shoes are my top 3 go-tos when getting dressed for a confidence boost.
What are your top 3?

I've had a lot of stuff come up lately (mostly school stuff ☹️) so I've been slacking on my posts but I never pass up a #transformationtuesday when I actually remember it so here ya go! •
Me at my unhappiest and HEAVIEST of about 160lbs and now at a healthy happy 125lbs 😊
Today was an extremely long day! I woke up, got my workout in, went to class, went to both jobs, went to volunteer at church, did homework AND helped two more people get involved with the workout program I’m doing! Finally home and laying in bed with this cute pup— this is just what I needed to unwind. ❤️
I use to use my curly fro to hide from the world. I'm super shy & introverted so it was the perfect shield for me, but it didn't quite work BC I always got compliments on my curls from strangers, which was nice, but weird BC I was always trying to hide from people. The less attention I got, the better.
Don't get me wrong, I loved my curls and it took some time to learn how to work with them, but with the help of videos from powerhouses like @allthingsada @risasrizos @lipstickncurls and @charmsie my hair flourished, but it's time for a change because I've changed. I've grown. My soul has grown and it wants locs and locs it's getting BC what the soul wants, the soul gets 🧘🏽 It's funny how now that I'm on my #locjourney , I've never felt more confident and beautiful, even during my current "ugly" aka bye Felicia stage. 😊 yes, I get crazy looks from people, but I don't care BC for the first time in my life, I'm feeling good in my own skin. I'm actually in love with myself!
What's even crazier is that my hair no longer covers my face and I'm OK with that. #confidenceissexy#2monthlocs#curlstolocs#ascension
Really wanted pirate booty + a 6 pack of IPA 🍺 but we decided to workout FIRST. 🕺🏽 turns out—after the workout we just wanted shakes and healthy shit 🌿🖖🏽 see, It’s not about changing everything all at once—just about making MORE healthy habits—one step at a time. And soon enough you’ll WANT to make better choices based on how you’ll feel afterward instead of in the moment 🤜🏽✨🤛🏽 PROUD OF US! 👏🏽

Is this, off guard? Or not? 🧐
I’m just trying to get out and do things for me now, can’t let anyone or anything hold me back anymore. The life is used to live isn’t the life I want. •
I want more and I need better 💕
After 3hrs in the gym, I felt like fainting. I refused to let myself “finish” my workout, so despite all my concerns, I wore a sports bra for the FIRST TIME in MY LIFE! I’ve even worn a tank top at the beach for the last few years. This means more to me than a lot of you may understand, and that’s fine, it’s my journey not yours. I still have insecurities, but I’m learning to love them, and stop caring about peoples opinions. Dr. Seuss said it best, “those that mind, don’t matter, and those who matter, don’t mind.” Today I said “FUCK IT” and I’m so happy I did. #bulletproof#strongerbody#confidenceissexy
50lbs lighter and never going back. 2 years ago if you would have asked me if I could lose the baby weight + 20lbs and back at my high school size by working out at home, I would have said you were crazy. No one has the motivation to workout that much at home by themselves without giving up. And eating clean 80% of the time? Forget it.
Funny thing is I never was alone on this journey. I had a tribe of women that had my back and inspired me on the daily. Clean eating? So much easier to make it a habit when others are doing it too and sharing recipes, tips and tricks.
I also wouldn't believe that I'd stay engaged and not get bored for doing the same workout every single day. I was wrong about that too. With HUNDREDS of different workouts to choose from, I never get bored and am always challenged.
Ready to put those beliefs on the shelf and get results like did and CONTINUE to do? Hit me up lady and let's chat!
Went to work out a little later then usual but it was cool. I also had a workout partner👭🏽. I loved workout out with my friend. I think we took too many breaks😅 but that's ok, it was great to have her there.
