I’ve always been a rough and rugged type of girl. Growing up on a farm, I rode motorbikes, tumbled over hay bales, and climbed up a tv antenna to my homes rooftop, then I’d jump 10 feet down on to a mattress. It was a fun, unsupervised childhood. However, I also love delicacy, softness, and the beautiful things in life. Things like lace, vintage swimsuits and the smell of fresh lavender. To me, the juxtaposition of strength and femininity creates a more nuanced, alluring and enticing world. Introducing my new tough and pretty - “800Ti” Titanium + Carbon bike by @thepoggio.

Kelelah @kelelah left me this book...Do you think she was trying to tell me something?
Sometimes I get questions about what I do to get into this shape. I think more importantly it's what I don’t do: I don’t drink alcohol I don’t smoke I don’t stay up late I don’t starve myself I don’t judge myself based on others Some people may think all of this sounds sooooo boring. I know the younger me totally would have. But, I’ve realized that being healthy, energetic and sober is the best drug on the market.
Some days I feel utterly useless mentally and physically and others I’m an unstoppable creative force. I teeter between the two. It’s a bizarre balance I maintain as an all or nothing type of person. I’ve learned to accept those low energy days because they ground me and prepare me for the days when I’m bouncing around with uninhibited passion. My best advice is to fall into the slow moments with the same vigor as you jump into the fast. Life happens at all speeds. Just be present.
We are all born as wild creatures. Our natural state is to be like fairies of the forest. Our nourishment comes in the form of sweet berries of inspiration and we drink deeply from the stream of passion. We hatch daily from cocoons of new opportunity and float on the breeze of fate like delicate flower petals.

I never met a girl I didn’t love ❤️ The lyrics to this beautiful song by @musicbyrue really resonated with me today. I have so many lovely, strong, brilliant women in my life who are all wonderful in their own ways. No two people are ever going to be exactly alike - and that’s what makes each of my friends so special and life so interesting!
I’m my own best friend A LOT. Why? Because I cherish the woman I have become. I like hanging out with the girl I see as my reflection. She’s sweet, goofy and creative...but also strong and self-sufficient. She takes care of me. She entertains me. She helps me learn from my mistakes. She’s nonjudgmental and open to love. But don’t be fooled because it hasn’t always been this way. In the past, there were definitely times she didn’t treat me right, nor I her. We made unhealthy decisions together side by side. As the years have passed, we’ve grown up a lot. We now know what’s right for us and how to live our best life...well, of course, TOGETHER 😊

Have you ever seen a pose and was like hmmmm that’s a thing? I saw a video of @rix.official doing a wide armed handstand, and for some reason I’d never thought to try a handstand with wide arms. So here you go :) see my story too. It took me about 60 attempts. Remember, you are sooooo much more capable than you believe and if you stay determined and persistent you can do anything. ...
