A month ago I drove out to the blue mountains on a cold day and proceeded to get naked and cover my body with glitter along with a dozen strangers! I met so many amazing women and heard the journeys that led them to that day. I have had my ups and downs with being comfortable in my own body, and I still struggle with it especially when my mental and physical health deteriorates, but I couldn’t think of anything better to get myself back in a positive frame of mind than a day full of glitter! Thank you to everyone at @positivelyglittered and Jill and Soph for looking after me, making the day so much fun and spreading the message of body positivity.
This day goes in my mental library of favourite memories. It was one of the best things I’ve ever done. @nipnipss @jillkerswillphoto and the other girls at @positivelyglittered, you are changing people’s worlds and views of themselves, one special, glittery body at a time.
3 of my favourite things...
ME , purple and glitter!!
My mental health has not been great recently but sometimes if you just cover yourself in glitter with a group of wonderful strangers you can get out of your head for a while. •
The group consisted of such a wide representation of women whose names I still don't really know but I do know their souls and they are remarkable! •
Thank you @positivelyglittered and all the other participants for an amazing and undeniably necessary experience. You should all do it! NOW!
Being apart of the positively glittered shoot was one of the most liberating things I’ve ever done. I immediately felt comfortable when meeting all these amazing women. It’s such a fun and positive environment for women to be apart of. It really makes you realise that we are all beautiful no matter what size or shape and we all have things that we somehow think are imperfections. It really put things in perspective for me. Life’s way to short to be hung up on things like that embrace every inch of your body and live your fullest life.
I’ve been in three @positivelyglittered photo shoots this year, never did I think I’d be spending my weekends covering myself in glitter. All three times I’ve met new people, all three times I’ve made new friends and all three times I’ve taken a step further into self love. What an incredible journey I am on and to be able to celebrate my body with other women on the same journey is a privilege.
Spending the day cavorting in a forest with 26 glitter covered woman was such an incredible experience! There was so much love, kindness, support and laughter and I feel so inspired.
Being with 30 other gorgeous, unique, and incredibly spirited women in a picturesque location in the wilderness with nothing on but glitter and flower crowns has just ELEVATED me to a new level of self-love.
I realised when talking openly with my new found (and old) friends that we all initially shared the same anxieties about our bodies and perceived lack or inadequacy compared to other women. But what we also realised that we all viewed EACH OTHER with such love, adoration and kindness, and our anxieties and hang ups are TRULY only in our own heads. So with that, what transpired in the bush was true MAGIC - I began to and continue to view and LOVE my glittery, curvy, bumpy and lumpy body like I have never loved it before. It is as though I can now see myself through others eyes, and the view is BEAUTIFUL!
