(PT 2, cont...) . I lost myself these past two years. But I also found myself. Not only in my band @opheliamusicofficial and making music and performing on stage and creating art. But also in amazing women like @charlihoward and @schillian who I stumbled upon on Instagram and who opened the doors to this beautiful world of the @allwomanproject and @straightcurvefilm, and so many gorgeous, amazing, body positive women, and agents like @jagmodels and @milkmodelmanagement and @musemodelsnyc , who offer hope and smiles to "in-between" models like myself as I scroll through the incredible, diverse, gorgeous women on their feeds. . I've been admiring this Body Positivity movement from afar this past year. Too scared of rejection to jump in to something so incredibly all inclusive. But then something clicked today when I was sitting on the floor in a flat, in pants and a bra, with an amazing photographer, trying to hide the rolls my little tummy made when I bent forward (as all tummies do). . What the hell am I doing. My body is amazing. Amazing enough to get me through 29 years of life on this crazy, beautiful planet. Amazing enough to get me through near death car accidents, heart breaks, moving continents, being (almost) homeless, countless auditions, shoots, jobs, laughs, cries, ups and downs. Amazing enough to walk nude through hundreds of people for three days straight. Amazing enough to love and embrace and be thankful for every "flaw" and perfect "imperfection" I am lucky enough to have. Amazing enough. . What the hell do I have to be scared about? . So tonight I jumped on the Body Positivity train. And it feels pretty good. Freeing. Relieving. Fucking great. . I cannot wait to share these shots I took today with you guys. I wish I had one to share now, but for the time being, here's a shot of me walking down a beautiful alley in South Ken earlier tonight feeling hot, sweaty, exhausted, but awesome. . Because my body is bloody rad. In all it's squishy, striped, saggy, rolled, strong, wonderful, unique glory. . And yours is too. . Don't ever forget that. ❤
Good morning beautiful creatures. ✨ This is a 2 part post I wrote on the train back from London late last night. It's a long one, so forgive me, but I needed to get it all out... . This past week I made a pact with myself. To DO. To hit the ground running. To make shit happen. . I'm a dreamer. I self analyse and contemplate constantly. And that's ok. But making excuses why your dreams can't come true isn't ok. . So today, I stopped worrying about the fact that my tummy might not be toned "enough" or my boobs might not be perky "enough" and I got off my tiger striped bum that I've been hiding for the past year and did two back to back photoshoots with amazing friends and photographers I've been wanting to work with for ages. Because when are you actually ever ready? When are you actually "enough" until you make just who you are enough? . I've been wanting to write about this for a while and it took a wonderful, exhausting day of shoots, speaking with friends and strangers, and a mini bottle of white wine on the late train back North for me to crawl out of my shell. . It's a very difficult thing, in the industry I work in to sometimes feel "enough"... good enough, skinny enough, pretty enough, smart enough, talented enough. We compare and are compared constantly. And as much as you hold your head high and try to not let it affect you, it does. Every little backwards comment, criticism, failed audition, social media post, industry and agent analysing, "too fat to be a fashion model," "too old on paper for the part, even though she looks younger" "tits aren't as pert as..." comment chips away little by little at this hard shell you've built until you're left with just you, more naked than you've ever felt, even when you were walking nude before millions, trying to figure out why you're suddenly scared to audition, take photos, do the thing you've loved more than anything since before you could remember. ...
