Body Love

Happy February! And happy week of Love - both Galentine’s Day and Valentine’s Day, and the explosion of red and pink and roses all over the shops. Whether you think it’s great or hate the commercialism, it’s impossible to escape the dreamy theme this month.

This month we’re thinking about the manifesto we wrote last month, and especially the line “All bodies are worthy of space, respect and self-care.” We’re taking this love and this line literally and loving our bodies. Leah got a tattoo last month that admittedly was a cute flash piece she just wanted, but getting it on the side of her belly represents loving her body and its rolls and squishy bits.

And Emily is …… beyond excited to read this book! February is a big month of love for her. Especially self love. Her birthday is February 11th so between this day and Valentine’s Day she makes sure to do something nice for myself this time of year. It helps her get through this dark, cold time of winter too. This year she bought herself a new book, Project Body Love by Jessie Harrold. Emily’s been following Jessie’s work on transformation, transitions, wellness, and connecting with your wild woman self for a while now. Her words always seems to resonate in just the right way. This is Jessie’s first book, exploring her journey and struggle to love her body and the realizations she’s made along the way. We think any person in the world can relate to this quest. Emily cannot wait to dive into this one!

We also loved this piece by one of our favourite bloggers about ten years of taking self-portraits and why it’s important to love your body here and now.

We love you! And think you’re great. Just as you are.
