Yesterday I rode on a motorcycle for the first time since a traumatic childhood accident. And didn’t die. And didn’t even have anxiety. And wore a pineapple bandanna because I’m still me. What the fuck is up
Finishing this year out as a happier person, more accomplished woman, and even bigger piece of shit. Dear 2019: I’m a bad bitch, you can’t kill me.
The first time I saw this jacket/shirt pairing in the mirror, I said “name a more iconic duo” out loud to myself 🤦🏻♀️
I call this look “Canadian Ziggy Stardust impersonator with a day job” 👩🏻🎤🇨🇦. Shoutout to Instagram for making this video look like it was recorded with a potato! 🥔🥔🥔
I wore this to a wedding in Hawaii over a month ago. I keep putting off posting this, because I can’t find the words to go along with it. They feel too conceited. Too big. Too much. Fuck that. This is the most beautiful I’ve ever felt. • Dress: handmade by @eliciafrances (also the shoes are hers!) Fabric: “HawaiianFabricNBYond” on @Etsy Pattern: inspired by a dress Parris Goebel wore to an awards show a few years back Peek of solid purple: @leftturnclothing (aka, what @rcrallstars used to have jerseys made out of!)
I retired from roller derby a year ago. After a decade of skating, it had become a large part of my identity. I was ready to retire, but in a lot of ways, I wasn’t ready for the journey of self-(re)discovery that I had to go on. Unraveling 10 years of unrepentant drive, self-criticism and pushing myself is taking time and patience, and learning to love the body I’m in can be hard. There are times I feel no longer able to claim that my big body has function for my sport (especially when hanging upside down on a rock wall), and the desire to relapse into my eating disorder has been nipping at my heels of late. Mercifully I’ve been able to keep the mental wolves at bay, thanks to an incredible support network, a new sport that’s given me renewed purpose and turned the great outdoors into a playground for me... and a kind therapist who is absolutely kill-ing-it with me right now. Derby champs just wrapped up, which means this year’s round of retirements is imminent. If you’re retiring this year, reading this and anything like me, let me tell you: it gets hard. It gets wonderful and challenging and brutal and great... and better. There’s so much life out here; you just gotta find which part of it makes you happy.
A man just shamed me, a woman traveling alone, for taking a picture of myself with a selfie stick. So I’m posting it immediately before I let myself get any more bothered by whatever the fuck some random-ass Brad thinks. • Necklace by @eliciafrances, whose jewelry starts conversations with people from all over the world. #therealmvp (link in bio)
