If you've never had your body made into a piece of art, I highly recommend the experience. Corey Lajeunesse of @scorpiobodypainting is such a rare find. He is insanely talented, and more importantly, he made me feel safe and cared for. The whole experience was empowering and joyful. He's currently accepting commissions for completely unique body painting projects, so get in touch with him if you like the idea of being a canvas for something beautiful and fleeting. The paint disappears right away but the photographs will last lifetimes. I'll always be able to look at this photo and remember my strength. I am a lioness. I also want to say that, like many women, it took me a long time to be comfortable with my own body. Letting this fierce symbol of power be painted on me and posing for this picture felt like a triumph over the many years I spent hating how I looked. I'm so damn proud of myself. I'm never going back to judging my worth over how closely I fit the mold of conventional beauty standards. My body is all mine and I get to decide how beautiful it appears to my own eyes. I've decided I'm gorgeous, and that's a kindness, a way of loving myself. I want everyone to feel that way, especially all my beautiful sisters out there.
You guys you guys! My friend @catnassidy wrote a book and I'm reading it and it's sooooo good and you should all go buy it immediately! If you like a tough, confident female main character, tons of mystery and suspense, and general scifi awesomeness, you are gonna dig this epic debut novel. Congrats Nat!!!!!!!!!! I'm so frickin proud of your face!!!!!!!!!
First pole class in like two years and I am FEELING MYSELF. Many thanks to @lizzo_2 for teaching such a killer workshop! If anyone is interested in making it a regular thing, I'd love to put a group together to start a weekly class. Hit me up if you're in Seoul and you wanna learn to work a pole!
When you radiate positivity wherever you go, when you choose to love and support the people around you, when you opt for compassion over judgment and patience over instant gratification, when you love yourself as much as those closest to you... Then life is as beautiful and expansive as the ocean and sky.
It's cold but I'm a happy girl. Finding joy in the little moments... Like your train arriving just as you step onto the platform. Or the delicious smell of 댈리 만주 in the station. Or the fact that you can ride the subway without holding onto anything because the trains are so smooth and they won't knock you over. Basically I love Seoul.
I've been coasting for a while in NYC, just taking the gigs that came my way and getting too busy with them to really hustle for anything bigger. I got bored but couldn't regain my hustle. This time I'm spending in Seoul - and I'm only two days in - is already starting to feeding that old fire. I'm going to come away from this with a brilliant new perspective. I can already feel it taking shape, and I'm willing to walk fearlessly into uncertainty to see it more clearly.
I am just as tired as I look. And if I also look a little sad, it's because I already miss my bestie, @iamraememusic. I spent all day packing and preparing and now I'm in an airplane waiting to take off. This is so crazy. I feel like I'm going back in time to an earlier version of my life, except now I have powers and awareness I didn't have then. When I lived in Seoul as a younger adult, I hated it. I was immensely ungrateful for the beauty of the city around me and the incredible opportunities it offered. I'm ready to do better by you, Seoul. Here I go! I'll see you in April, NYC!
I love my fiery new color by @martythomashair!!! Marty never fails to give me exactly what I was imagining. He's AMAZING!!! Oh and he sings his ass off, too. I'll be performing with Marty and @martysdivas tonight at @industrybarnyc at 11pm. It's free! This will be your last chance to see me perform in NYC for a while so don't miss it! You'll also get @iamraememusic and @briecassil for the same price - did I mention it's free?? (Oh and yes - I do live in this sweater. )
