Still on cloud 9 but I really want to get real with all of you for a minute ❤️ This weekend was so liberating for so many reasons. I’ve done this for a long time and brands always photoshop me whether it’s making my butt smaller or my legs smoother, and all that other stuff. I don’t mind because it’s part of the industry and I know who I am regardless… But the @si_swimsuit show was where I got to show my true, authentic self. I’m used to being able to make my body look perfect with angles and posing for photos and all that jazz, but for once, I had that weight off my shoulders and just got the opportunity to truly live in the moment of being myself. I mean, I’ve literally never done runway in my life I just knew I had to soak in this moment and strut my ass off 😂 I can’t tell you how freeing this moment was though. I was so full of just feeling grateful and blessed and sass that I just let loose. Yes, there’s Facetune and photoshop that exists in photos and even in some of my own, because I’m human and we all have days where maybe we feel better about ourselves than other days but being fearless to be yourself in front of countless people on a huge platform is a feeling I’ll never forget. It’s just a reminder to never believe what you see on social media & to just love YOU and do what makes YOU happy because mental health is just as (if not more) important than physical health. Remember, 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 Here’s to every HUMAN who has ever doubted if they should chase their dreams 🥂 GO DO IT!
