Take a chance, Talk to a Stranger #ChangeTheConversation

I was trying on clothes in the fitting room.  Stacks and stacks of shirts, jeans and dresses hung on the “Not This Time” hook, needing to go back because they didn’t fit.  Didn’t look right.  Didn’t make me feel good....more

Why You Should Strip Down and Get Naked Pics

So, I'd never modeled before. I am always the awkward one who doesn't know what to do with her hands in photos and ends up making a fist. A lot of my photos look very angry as a result.And, like many, I have a very love-hate relationship with my body. Love my boobs, hate my ... everything else. So, when I was asked by a friend to go with her to her boudoir photography shoot, I scoffed....more

Wanna Feel Better About Your Body? Spend a Day at the Beach

Ask any woman and she will tell you that there are three things she hates to shop for: jeans, bras and swimsuits. Standing in front of a mirror, half-dressed, while cramming and tugging parts of your body into skimpy clothing better suited for someone half your age is no one’s idea of a fun day.

But then the promise of a soft sandy beach and free top-shelf alcohol beckon,s and I groan and make the dreaded trip to the mall. Time to put modesty aside and bare all....more

When I got home, I bumped into my sweet, 75 year-old widowed neighbour, Mr. Gunderson. He inspected the lamps, even putting his glasses on for a better look. “I really love those.

I was confused, and didn’t know what he was talking about, until I got into the house and took a really good look at them.Here’s a close-up....more
