P R E G N A N C Y 🤰🏼
Weeks 16 vs 20 vs 24
I really didn’t notice how much my bump has grown until I put together this collage yesterday!
And on Thursday I will be 26 weeks pregnant!
I love being pregnant and will definitely miss my bump.. but we’re so excited to meet our baby!! ❤️
I love traveling and grew up kind of like a gypsy moving from place to place- but the older I get the more I just like to be home. 🌿 give me my travels and open road but take me home and leave me there for awhile because there’s nothing like being surrounded by the ones who make your heart beat and your why. Today I ran around all day and didn’t get to be home much and I didn’t accomplish what I wanted to at home either- Monday you’ve been a Monday- but it’s okay because I get to just be right now and cuddle my littlest love. 🌿
It's been 10 days since you left and the apartment is very quiet without you (and also much much cleaner). I wouldn't have ever guessed I'd be saying this but I miss you stealing my clothes (though I definitely don't miss you leaving a mess in the kitchen). Come visit again soon bb
I’ve been reflecting a lot about where I was at the beginning of the year and it hasn’t all been good but I’m so grateful to be here. Grateful for pushing myself. I realized I identify as trans masculine, Something that is still hard for me to admit and something I work on everyday to become more comfortable & confident with. I got a promotion at my job. I’m in school for a criminal justice program. I’ve made an incredible & genuine friend and have had truly fulfilling conversations with great people. Lost three teeth and got a tattoo. Took a horrible four month break from taking anxiety meds only to realize I need them desperately and now that I’m back on them life has been amazing. Taking my mental health seriously has been a big highlight of this year and I’m so happy I made the decision to go back on them. When I was younger, I was so anxious about who I’d be. Now I know that it’s alright to be forever changing and evolving and LEARNING. Who knows what’s to come next year. ✌🏻

I got off work this Saturday to find this-someone/something hit my car and didn’t leave a note. My immediate reaction was confusion turned to the free flow of angry tears. I was so bummed out. I was pretty (bleeping) sad. As much as I wanted to look on the bright side of things: at least I wasn’t hurt, it could have been worse, etc...this incident undoubtedly made me feel like 💩 for the rest of the day.
I wanted so badly to approach what had happened with a positive mindset. However, I started to remember something I heard about in a TedTalk by Susan Davis, a psychologist.
She explained how we group emotions into “positive” or “negative” ones. We have become hyper-fixated on being positive, almost to the point where we are quasi-positive just to feel better about ourselves. Instead of forcing ourselves into positivity, such as I did when my car got hit and ran, we should let ourselves sit with the uncomfortable, unwanted emotions. I realized “yes, I am angry” and “yes, I am sad”-but that’s okay!
Emotional perfection is not only tiring, but impossible. Learning how to deal with and work through “negative” emotions prepares us for future 💩 things that happen to us. My new goal is to let things, even like my dented drivers door, roll off my shoulders. Yes, what happened was 💩, but 💩 happens.
Quick & Easy Hair Curling Tutorial!!
This is my usual go to process. I use a @ghd_northamerica curve creative curl wand and lightly brush through the curls once the hair’s cooled down 😉

Happy Monday! It’s so rainy and cool out! After work, I just wanted to have dinner, wine, and cozy up to the Sunday shows I didn’t watch last night and finally, the season premiere of #TheResident ! AND #DancingWithTheStars ! It’s so much cozier when you light amazing candles!
P.S. This week’s episode of #Insecure was so hilarious and relatable 😂 #Fall#FallTV
Sitting here feeling a lot of magic + confidence this Monday. I have a new fire inside me as I make the transition into a life of working for myself.
I’m so grateful for the path that led me here. The wave of emotions I experienced. The test of true inner strength + grit. All of it has given me the confidence to go after this work and I’m so excited for it.
Don’t let people tell you how to run your life. It’s okay to make mistakes. It’s okay to fail. What matters is that you do the thing that scares you. That you go after what you want in this life.
If you’ve read this far, thank you. We’ve got this. You matter, so much. The world is waiting for us to make moves.
Transitions, always. Let’s do this thing. ♥︎ -

Siempre se debe secar bien la piel para evitar que se agriete, especialmente cuando hace frío. Siempre debe tener a mano toallas limpias; las toallas sucias exponen la piel a más suciedad y existe riesgo de infección. Lo ideal sería utilizar toallas de un solo uso, ya que con el uso de toallas compartidas cabe la posibilidad de una contaminación.

If you’re following me on my health and wellness account ( @holisticallyxliving ) you may have seen a similar picture 🙊 but I thought I’d share on here as well, and start using this account for more lifestyle / non health related posts - I might change my mind again but 🤷🏻♀️ hope you have all been well 💜
I find myself constantly coming up with new, stupid ideas to unfuck myself up, all the time. Is it just me that can’t break the cycle? On the plus side, holiday in a couple of weeks. Yes, this is needed. Especially right now. I actually have an annoying story about my need for a holiday and my tactless nurse but it’s late now so I’ll share tomorrow. Sweet dreams spoonie fam 💖
i’m not a fan of faux flowers but i picked these up this morning at @michaelsstores because the colors were 👌🏼. packing up card orders from the weekend + dreaming up things to do with these beauties ✉️
I finally finished Nineteen Eighty-Four today and I’m needing a bit of a comfort read, so I’m starting a new YA novel.
Basically Big Brother really is watching now isn’t he?! And twitter kind of is the Thought Police?? And our phones listen to what we say?? And someone let me out of this dystopia now 🙃 (please let me know what you think of 1984 if you’ve read it??)
PSA! ✨ I got so many questions on this @express ribbed sweater last week & it is currently apart of their online sale & marked way down! Such a pretty color & so comfortable! 💛💛 Sale ends tonight.

2 TODAY 🎂😍
He didn’t know what all the fuss was about but he went along with it anyway 😆
I can’t believe it’s been 2 yrs. I struggled the first few months in shock still that I’d had baby no.4 but here we are and I’d do it all again, my Little Bill ❤️
This is one post I didn’t see myself doing.
I’ve never really got the whole ‘body confidence thing’ it actually annoys me that it is a thing because we should all love our bodies and should never have been made to feel that loving ourselves is an accomplishment.
Having my first child was hard on my body, I felt everyone complimented my figure before, having lovely long slim legs and a little waist. Then I got the ‘ooo you’ve put on a bit of weight’ and being a first time mum it was hard enough to come to terms with the changes my body were facing.
I never really got used to my post partum mum bod until I started growing my second human. Watching my body do it all over again made me realise ‘wow I’m actually growing a f*cking human’ who gives a shit if I have stretch marks or a colossal arse that I have to squeeze into jeans. I have made TWO humans. I should be proud of my body.
So here is my ‘body confidence’ (notice the smile on my face) I feel sexier than ever.
P.S I love a big, over the tum pair of knickers.
