You’re one of our Brand Ambassadors, part of the Shapermint Crew! What inspired you to join the Crew?
I like wearing shapewear. It always makes me feel better and more confident. Spreading positivity through the Shapermint Crew is what inspired me to join.
What do you enjoy most about being on the Crew?
I like the campaigns not just about the products but more about bringing awareness to body positivity.
How do you want to shape change with us?
I would like to see more people be accepting of themselves as well as other people around them. We are all human beings working our way through life, and we all deserve to be treated with love, kindness, and respect. There's a lot of negativity out there, not to mention these filters that make people look totally different. It's important to spread positivity in general but especially to love yourself just the way you are.
How do you define body positivity?
For me, it's about accepting your body the way it is, with all the scars and imperfections. Our body does not define what's inside, it's just our vessel.
How does Shapermint help you celebrate your shape?
Shapermint offers shapewear that's comfortable and helps give my body a flattering look. It smooths everything out and makes me feel more confident in the way I look.
What does self-care mean to you? Do you have any particular rituals or routines that spark self-love?
Self-care means taking care of me! If I don't take care of myself, nobody else is going to do it so I need to make sure I keep my stress levels down by doing self-care rituals. I love a nice hot bath with Epsom salts. Dry brushing is good to remove dead skin and eliminate toxins. I have quite a collection of facial masks that I use weekly as well as facial tools. I meditate when I can and do box breathing to focus. I try to get 7 hours of sleep which tends to be difficult. I don't overburden myself and have learned how to say no. There is a lot that goes into self-care!
We absolutely love the fact that you use social media as a liberating force to celebrate body positivity and other movers & shapers out there. Are there any women on social media who inspire you to be your best self?
There are so many amazing and talented women on social media. The one that stands out to me is Lizzo @lizzobeating. I love her all her positivity and find her to be an inspiration to many people including myself.
What is your favorite Shapermint essential? How do you like to style it?
My favorite Shapermint Essentials are the High Waisted Leggings. I can style them with a sweater, long shirt, or t-shirt or pair them with the All Day Every Day Scoop Neck Cami.
How can you empower women of the next generation as Shapermint Crew?
I can lead by example by being the best version of myself that I can be. It's important for women to be kind, accepting, and supportive of each other. We need to lift each other up, not tear each other down. It all starts right here with ourselves.
Looking in front of the mirror, what would want to tell yourself?
You are perfect just the way you are!
