@shoploveyourz was kind enough to send me one of their sexiest, hip-hugging, lace-up, shoulder-boosting dresses to don on a night out in DTLA this past weekend. I paired it with the most glamorous earrings from @neonbeautifuldesign, a swipe of #RussianRed by @Mac, and a pair of black stilettos. While shooting I felt washed over in gratitude that I belong to this amazing city. #LosAngeles, I’m Yours.

Has anyone else ever opted for dark, drab colors instead of bright, outspoken ones as a silent apology for their size or to mask body parts or fat? (*raises hand 🤚* #guilty) As a larger person (or let's face it: as women) we are taught to systematically shrink ourselves and blend in. Well I am giving a huge 🖕🏼to that. #standout

So I haven’t posted any #MovementMonday clips for awhile because I’ve been nursing chronic pain due to a #sacroiliacjoint injury from 2013, which has flared up again.
.
This leads me to: it’s OK to not be OK. It’s OK to need to take time off working out because you’re hurt. Rest is important. Recovery from injury trumps exercise, because who cares about endorphins and fitness if you’re in pain 24/7? Sometimes you need to rest before rebuilding. All is not lost.
.
Also: THERE IS SUCH A THING AS OVERTRAINING YOUR GLUTES. We are in the era of the hyper booty where bigger = better and women spend inordinate amounts of time in the gym working for booty gains. But realize that there’s such a thing as too much of a good thing: you can injure yourself, and even though I’ve been lifting for four years and know what I’m doing, if you overdo it, you’ll get hurt. If you twist the wrong way to often, you’ll get hurt. If you don’t develop stability, you’ll get hurt. If you don’t take proper time off, you’ll get hurt. If you don’t train your entire body, you’ll get hurt. There’s a reason I overhear the men in my gym convening over injuries all the time, and I’m sorry, but no butt is worth being in chronic pain over.
.
So be smart, move wisely, and above all, respect your body. You only get one!

"It is absurd to divide people into good or bad. People are either charming or tedious." - Wilde
.
For real though. A little random #selfphotography for a personal project in the vein of my long-time hero, @christinehmcconnell. Just one of my alter egos coming out to play (and considering that I'm learning Princesse for Ravel's "L'enfant," it's appropriate on that level as well). #princess #mood #takenoprisoners

Throwing it back to last summer. You don't know what discomfort is until you spend eight hour work days singing in extremely tight corsets, weighed down by 20lbs of material, all while under very hot stage lights in a Febreezed costume while trying to sing in tune and appear in love with the tenor who is wailing in your face. I must be a masochist because I love every moment of it. #lovemyjob #tbt #throwback

One final #unedited, #raw shot from my sunny shoot with the incredible @christinaracinephotography! I happen to think that fleshy hips are one of *the* sexiest parts of a woman's body, though they pale in comparison to how sexy the following are:
.
➖intellect ➖passion ➖compassion ➖talent
➖confidence ➖authenticity ➖kindness ➖integrity ➖emotional literacy ➖thoughtfulness ➖wit and humor ➖artistry ➖intelligence
.
One unexpected upside that accompanied radical #selflove and #bodypositivity was that I suddenly had more time to focus on developing the rest of those qualities-- the ones that actually matter in the long run. #truestory #mental #makeovers .
