I bought a red swimsuit and my body looks fucking banging in it!

December 17, 2017

That’s me in my new red swimsuit and I had an amazing time making this image. I had two incredible friends photograph me in it. We took some music to the rooftop of another friend’s house where we shot this. We had a fucking blast. I crouched and growled like a tiger, crawled on the […]

In the last few weeks, I have constantly been overwhelmed by things I can’t control. This constant overwhelming feeling can eventually lead to feeling powerless.
