So I got vulnerable and wrote this lengthy post that turned into a form of my #bebrave story and the purpose behind my daily posts. Do I want to throw up when I stare at the ‘share’ button? Absolutely. But will I share? Absolutely. Why? Because no one will silent my voice. Please continue to read my story within the comments of this post:

My body has been on quite an epic journey.
At the ripe old age of 19….I gave birth to my first daughter. My 9lb 14oz baby. So, to give you some perspective on this body screw of a lifetime, imagine me for a moment!! I’m 5’4”…..my frame is small….I had a nearly 10lb baby in my body. AND>>>>she was breech. At 38 weeks, they tried to turn her. FML right then and there! I had a baby sitting in my pelvis and head up in my ribs. The only way to move her was to break a rib, hip, or her neck. BAD FUCKING IDEA!
Schedule me a c-section please. Not exactly what I wanted but I was willing to do anything to get her out! The trauma that that delivery caused was enough to bring me to my knees….literally I was on my knees. I couldn’t even bring my leg up to get into the tub. So, pain…..CHECK! Weight gain…..CHECK, CHECK, CHECK, CHECK 180lb check later…… I felt shame in being a young, unmarried mother who was overweight and had no education other than a high school diploma. I remember telling myself, if I want something, I can have it. There is absolutely NO reason why I can’t. But I really had no idea what I wanted. Other than being a mother and providing a life for my daughter that she would be proud of. OH and also…I didn’t want to look like a mom. After all, I was 19. I was also engaged to be married, so I needed to get in shape for my beach wedding! #LetsGetInShape
I remember the first time I went to the gym….I was in sweat pants, sweatshirt, loose bra, and my glasses……I really didn’t know what I was doing. I was athletic in high school, but I was not ready to rock the gym. Once I began figuring it out and started losing weight, it became addictive. I felt so good!!! Fast forward a little…..I got pregnant again with our second daughter. I was so motivated to get back in shape and there was nothing that was going to get in my way. I began doing workouts on DVDs from home. #gamechanger When you have kids and have limited time, it becomes a way of life. I fell in LOVE and never stopped. 👇🏻

You’ll never catch me without lipstick on hand or without my pink journal (aka my best friend)💄 Maybe I drank too much coffee today (maybe), but taking a moment to reflect on the clients & projects that keep me #BUSY and on the #hustle and a little #crazy 👀.

Elles ont été moi, elles sont moi et seront toujours moi. Mon challenge 10 ans est un peu différent des autres... Je repense à tout ce que j'ai vécu. Chaque sentiment que j'ai ressenti, chaque pensée que j'ai eu, chaque rire que j'ai eu, chaque doute, chaque larme et chaque inquiétude que j'ai eu. J'ai également connu la honte, la solitude, la solidarité, l'écoute, le pardon, le changement, la colère et le désespoir. Et j'ai connu l'amour, la peur, la sûreté, le sourire, le bonheur et le malheur. Sans oublier, mes réussites, mes échecs, mon ambition, mon courage, ma détermination, mes flemmes, mes craintes, la douleur, la perte, la maladie, la mort. Et tant de choses encore... Ce challenge, c'est mon histoire. Tout compte, chacune de mes expressions. Tout ceci m'a faite moi et je suis fière de moi.
Are you a lover of January?
I am! I love getting back to working on my business doing the things that I put off to the side while I take care of the holiday rush.
I also have a stack of books and magazines that I’m dying to dig into.
I would love to hear what you have to say about January in the comments below.

I always see these glamor shots of people working out in fancy outfits. For me, working out means a comfy T-shirt’s, ponytail and no make up. But no matter how you look, health is the priority!
My Turn 😜🙃👆 #10yearchallenge#mystory
10 years ago I was a corporate slave.. Yes I was working in a big company with a very good position at young age handling 7 companies under my umbrella, working daily from 7am till 8 pm hard enough to prove everyone around me that this little young lady can really do the job and working with a tough manager who hated me, and on the weekends I had to study more, done management, human resources, sales and marketing, literally I went for any good studies that I saw it would support my career.. But I was not happy.. I knew I can do something better and more meaningful with helping people to get better jobs .. Then I saw an opportunity in the recruitment market for introducing something with different Prospective.. I just saw myself and my company name in the market.. Saw a thing that nobody has seen. Took my decision didn't tell anyone went through all the legal and financial procedures by myself with support with of couple of friends whom I will be always grateful for.. Everyone called me crazy friends, family, everyone doubted my decision specifically with my zero business experience.. Had to work more harder than before, study more to learn and to work from all the Ups and Downs.. Now after 10 years my recruitment agency for senior management working with most of the Multinational companies in middle East and Africa I could thankfully say it was right 😉.. BUT my story didn't end yet.. Last year I had a deep depression I lost my passion.. My life passion.. Kept crying day and night.. Didn't know what to do.. It took me a year and a piece of paper to write down things that interest me in life and was Fashion and Travel, then I did it again 😅👆 Traveled to Milan Italy 🇮🇹 to Study Fashion, and Yes same people called me Crazy lol but I didn't care 🙏 Now I proudly have my own Fashion line for women Jumpsuits @jumpsuitme and my Styling Studio Su.Styling.studio 😊🙏 And Still Running my favorite recruitment agency inspiring and Helping people to get their dream jobs ❤️❤️
Non posto spesso in questo profilo perché principalmente mi concentro a creare contenuti su @chiamatemigas che ormai da più di un anno è diventato il mio portfolio fotografico.
Ultimamente ho preferito concentrarmi sui ritratti, ho voluto migliorare la tecnica e sperimentare un genere nuovo.
Adesso però sento il bisogno di riprendere a raccontare storie, le mie storie, quelle che mi riguardano personalmente, pertanto ho deciso di rivedere un po' qualche scatto del passato da condividere con voi.
Adesso, dopo un anno di studio e pratica costante, ho deciso di rivedere qualche scatto del passato e migliorarlo in post produzione. Ho scattato questa foto la notte del 17 agosto 2017 il giorno del compleanno di @simona.sardo17 (la mia fidanzata per chi non lo sapesse) ed è stata una delle giornate più belle della mia vita. Al di là di questo (che è già tanto) questa foto mi piace particolarmente per l'atmosfera rappresentata: la luce di un lampione che illumina un vicoletto buio. Credo susciti una sensazione di cupo mistero.
Tecnicamente parlando la scena è semplice, minimalista, composta da pochi elementi, con una buona simmetria ed un buon bilanciamento tra luci ed ombre. Ho scelto di usare dei toni caldi perché volevo incuriosire e non spaventare (in tal caso avrei usato quelli freddi)
Queste sono tutte le mie pippe mentali su questo scatto.
A voi piace? Vi suscita qualcosa o restate indifferenti?

♠️Little Black Dress
•In 1926 Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel published a picture of a short, simple black dress in American Vogue. It was calf-length, straight and decorated only by a few diagonal lines. Vogue called it "Chanel's Ford". Like the Model T, the little black dress was simple and accessible for women of all social classes. Vogue also said that the LBD would become "a sort of uniform for all women of taste"
•Маленькое чёрное платье придумала в 1926году Коко Шанель в память о погибшем возлюбленном. До того момента чёрный цвет, ассоциировавшийся с трауром, не пользовался успехом, но с приходом маленького чёрного платья стал весьма популярен. Платье, созданное Шанель, прикрывало колени, поскольку она считала колени самой некрасивой частью женского тела. Его также отличали простой полукруглый вырез, длинные узкие рукава и отсутствие излишеств, таких как бахрома, пуговицы, оборки.
Позволить себе маленькое чёрное платье могла любая женщина, даже с довольно невысоким доходом. Ведь имея одно такое платье, можно было с помощью аксессуаров создать множество комбинаций, и каждый раз выглядеть по-разному.
