#BeYourOwnSupermodel

It is no secret that there are two things I hold in high regard: Body Positivity, and The Boudoir Divas (among others….but these stay at the top of the list)!

The Divas are holding a contest with the amazing hashtag movement: #BeYourOwnSupermodel, and it’s truly a beautiful thing! Take a moment and check out their latest blog post with more info about the movement and what inspired them (literally, I got chills and super emotional reading it).

I really love that these two favorites consistently go hand in hand, and I am REALLY excited for their new campaign/contest! I wish all those who choose to enter the best of luck-this prize is out of this world, and I will personally and candidly envy the winner!

#1 Sunrise Hike Up Cowles Mountain #27ThingsforMy27thYear

Hello, everyone!

So, as we discussed in my last post, I will be completing 27 things that I have a) always wanted to do or b) wasn’t sure I wanted to do, but figured I ought to be able to. Number one is officially complete!

We are 9 days into my 27th year on this earth, and I was really excited to complete my sunrise hike with Ashley on Saturday, March 7th!

It started off a little rough. I worked 5 pm to 5 am, got off work and headed straight for the mountain.  My allergies were kicking my butt….so we are climbing a mountain at 5:30 in the cold morning, and my lungs were expanding as if they were outside my body, and I had to stop THREE times on the way up. We’ve done this hike twice before, and I never had this issue!

Nonetheless, when we did stop, we admired the moon behind us, and the little bit of sun peeking out in front of us.

The goal? Get to the top of this mountain before the sun does. And we did! As a matter of fact, I’d venture to say the sun only rose about halfway by the time we got up there.

We admired it, took photos with our boards (Ashley is doing 29 Things for her 29th Year), and then we enjoyed croissants and mimosas (with pink champagne!) at the top! Also, I could breathe up there, too!

This experience made me feel strong, it made me feel accomplished….and it made me appreciate the beautiful things around me everyday! I sometimes forget I live in one of the most beautiful states, and cities, in America! You can you see the beach from the mountains! It’s insane!

Also, fun fact: I wore my new Healthy is the New Skinny tank on the hike, and @HealthyistheNewSkinny shared it on their Instagram! It made my day, and made the experience even more meaningful!

Take the time to appreciate your surroundings!

Take that walk around a beautiful neighborhood, run on the beach, climb a mountain and nearly have an asthma attack (hahaha)! You won’t regret it! I’m up early everyday (I went straight from a 12 hour shift to do this, after all), and never did this before. And now? I cannot WAIT to do it again!

Wishing you love and light, and the creativity to make a list of your own!
