BE YOUR AUTHENTIC SELF // We often play small and hold ourselves back because we’re afraid of what other people might think or say. But often, those fears are rooted in stories that we tell ourselves about our insecurities. Release your fears and let go of the stories that hold you back. It’s not always easy and it takes time, but wouldn’t you rather be authentic?
Super excited to be teaching beginners heels workshops this April in Swindon & London - check out my Facebook community to stay updated, limited spaces for intimate feel! Let go, be free, you deserve it!
So, for #motherdaughtermovienight we watched #lovesimon .
What an adorable little gem with a big story 💫
We laughed so much we had to help each other quiet back down, and cried so hard that we left the theater with wet shirt collars (which made us laugh more). These gay romance movies are giving us life! The love, the pain,...the parents!! 😭😭 Keep telling these sweet (coming-of-age) love stories, Milena and I are so here for it ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

Our bodies are a sacred temple. They are the dwelling place of our soul. They are our friend and constant companion from birth until death. Everything is influenced by our words and even our thoughts! Practice saying and thinking kind words of appreciation toward your body every day.
“And I’d realised that watching a moment-by-moment breakdown of the social-media-sparkly-but-fake version of somebody else’s life and creating my own was doing nothing but distracting me from living my own fully expressed life. And even worse, it was contributing to fuelling the epidemic of status anxiety and it didn’t sit well with me.” ~ Bella Zanesco
In our day and age it’s hard to escape social media. Too tempting to pick up the phone to see if Sarah ‘liked’ your last post, or If you’ve reached 200 followers yet. But really, is it worth it? Will your day/ life change if you DON’T check social media for just one day?
Special breakfast treat was gotten for Khail and I this morning before school and work.... Me, dark roast coffee with 3 shots of espresso!!!! Yeah, ok, breakfast wrap of spinach, egg and feta cheese..... But let's be real here, the coffee was the priority.
This #throwbackthursday from 2015 is in gratitude to our phenomenal Guests!
Saying thank you isn’t enough. It just doesn’t fully capture what you, our beloved Guests, mean to us. You are our Family, our Loved Ones; you’re the reason we smile each day, the reason we get to pursue our passions, why we love what we do, and do it better and better each moment so we can rise to the exceptionalness that is you. Without you, our dreams would never have been possible. We at The Lab Hair Studio want you to know how much we truly appreciate your support, your love, your friendship; and most of all we are forever grateful that of all the Salons you have to choose to make yours you continue to choose us time and time again. Thank you for an amazing four years and beyond.
An extra special thanks to Lewis Mann for perfectly capturing the spirit of our Studio and all within with this one of a kind moment! 💋
MINDSET🤓, MENTORING👩🏫, AFFIRMATIONS💞, SELF HELP📖 ect... it's not easy! It's a full time job by itself.
💕 I love working on myself and trying to become a better ME and I love trying to help others in becoming a better them!🤗 BUT I've definitely had my struggles along the way. There has been many and many of times I cared TO MUCH what others would think of me. I didnt want people to talk behind my back and I didn't want to hurt anyone's feelings.. So I was always trying to make them happy in what they wanted and NOT what I wanted! This was a full time job as well but it wasn't a job that was paying well unlike self help😉.... It was a job that was putting me down, making me second guess everything I wore, if I could leave the house with out make up and my hair done, if my house, my cars where good enough for them, if my kids where dressed well enough and their hair was always done and so on😔. Always feeling like I had to say yes to everything I was asked to do. 💕
I made a promise to myself when we moved that I was not going to be that person anymore. I was going to show up for myself and be ME!!! 💕
This little gem popped up in my memory feed this morning! A perfect time for a little reminder 😉
Dear self, You are beautiful👸, you are loved👨👨👦👦, you are kind💞, you are caring🤗, you are YOU and you are AMAZING!! 😍😍 Trying to learn who you really are and what you are ment to be here on earth is hard at times, but reminding yourself daily that you are you and that nothing else matters will make life easier and more enjoyable!
Your writing this book and your chapters are field with adventures, sadness, happiness, & hard times. But this book is yours and only you will be able to fill it with what you choose🤗❤️🤗❤️! You are in this life for a reason and while you are still figuring out what that reason is just remember all you need to know today is
YOU ARE CAPABLE OF AMAZING THINGS!! Xoxoxo😘

If your excuse for every time you have failed to deliver, or failed to do the things YOU have planned to do is because others failed to come through, then reflect on your life.
Like seriously, sit down, pen and paper and be your own psychologist. I've been there and honestly at times, it's really hard to get out of that place.
Stop waiting on others to give you feedback, stop relying on, waiting on, waiting for them to show up for you. They have their own lives too, and have absolutely no obligation to come through for you. Do things for yourself.
My point is: Never let the delays of others stop you from doing what you want/need to do.
There's a high chance that others will fail to come through because they are busy people too, so do something for yourself instead; and if you can't, maybe it's time to reconsider your approach (how you are doing it)
So go. Open word and start typing. Start writing down your ideas and scripts. Grab your camera and go shoot. Post up that video you've been working on. Open that business. Release the model you prepared earlier. Buy that plane ticket. Ask a stranger for a photo.
When you find ways to make your stuff happen, others will eventually notice and would want a part of it. (and in their own time will be more enthusiastic and reliable than before)
Goodnight to you all on this wonderful Monday night. 🌜🌚🌝🌛💫
Today was day 4 of #PowerAndGraceYogis with @rhyannawatson
@silver_cloudss @themuscleboundyogi and wheel pose! •
Tonight I want to leave you with this quote/challenge. 🌸
"I am my own biggest critic. Before anyone else has criticized me, I have already criticized myself. But for the rest of my life, I am going to be with me, and I don't want to spend my life with someone who is always critical. So I am going to stop being my own critic. It's high time that I accept all the great things about me." C. JoyBell C.
It's no secret that we are usually our own worst critic.
There is no need to be so hard on yourself.
You are a work of art;
becoming the person you were destined to be.
Don't hate yourself today because you aren't quite yet the person you will become tomorrow.
This pose is SO incredibly difficult for me ever since I broke my back, but today I was able to hold it longer than I have ever been able to before. My alignment is still totally wack, but with each day we are all capable of gaining more strength and grace.💪🏼💕 mat by @inclinefit 📸 I can thank @frusciangel for this dope perspective shot 📸
Be your authentic self. Our desire for acceptance always drives us towards the trends of the moment: Wearing the right clothes, doing the right degree, having the 'cool' friends that we don't actually like, driving the right cars, having the best phones and working the highest paying jobs... I've found for me that putting these trends to the side and doing/seeking what I truly enjoy makes me the happiest.
Think about what makes you laugh. Seek the things that truly give you happiness. What clothes do you feel comfortable in? Wear that. Find people that you can be yourself around. A place of acceptance by self and by others. A place where you can florish without worry of "tall poppy syndrome." Not only will we feel happier but more at peace and more energized.
