As excited as I was for my recent deliveries from @aerie I couldn't help but feel nervous as all heck about being photographed in a … you guessed it.. a 👙. I have always had curves and I have always argued with them. Some days it was, could you turn more hourglass? Other days it was, could just plain not exist? Needless to say my body was true to itself even when I felt the pressure to look otherwise. I'm challenging myself this year to not let a social standard dictate my size, shape, or skin tone. I'm naturally pale AF y'all and I can't keep buying self tanner (#sorryjergens), I've got freckles everywhere, and my size (for the most part) is consistently all about that curve. My size is mine. And you know what? In my book that's pretty freaking beautiful 🙋🏼😘🙏🌮 #everyBODYisbeautiful #aeriereal

Guys, this is two days in a row that I haven't dreaded looking at my body! This is HUGE! So yes I will show my body proudly, I work so hard to learn to love myself. This isn't for anyone else this is for ME. Happy Sunday, I hope you all feel beautiful today. You don't have to be beautiful like her, you can be beautiful like YOU! Love your body, every curve, bump, roll, mark, it makes you YOU and no one on this earth has that power. Not going to lie I used to be and still am sometimes terrified of summer time. Bikinis, showing skin, knowing damn well I haven't prepared (why prepare wtf) for summer. NEWS FLASH: you don't have to ever prepare for any season, any clothing, any event. Screw dieting, screw torturing yourself to fit into a certain type of clothing because you're scared you won't look like everyone else. You won't ever look like anyone else and that's 100% okay because you are you and they are them and both are equally beautiful. No body shaming. No beauty standards. Build up others, don't tear them down. 💪🏽🌸 • • • #edrecovery #recovery #BDD #stopbodyshaming #fatphobia #bopo #bopowarrior #unretouched #aeriereal #neda #aerie #nowrongwaytohaveabody #everybodyisbeauitful #everybuttisbeautiful #myflawsarefierce #realbodies #allbodiesarerealbodies #cellulitesaturday #embracethesquish

#AerieREAL Love From Iskra: Beach Bag Essentials

Hey Aerie girls,

It’s finally feeling like summer is here, so I wanted to share my Beach Bag Essentials with you 🙂

In June I’ll be taking my yearly trip and this time I plan on heading somewhere in Europe – maybe Santorini then onto a beach vacay hopefully in the Caribbean like Turks and Caicos. Eeekk so excited!

So I’m going to make sure I pack very carefully as I tend to overdo everything and end up not wearing half of my clothes. This year I’m thinking of planning day by day, so literally writing out each day I’m away in numbers then deciding the type of outfit I need for the different days. So for days I’m flying I’m going to need my sweatpants!

#AerieREAL Love From Iskra: Beach Bag Essentials

Here’s my overview of what I’m taking away with me this summer:

  • Sunnies!!! OK so I don’t know why but I’m pretty forgetful especially with sunglasses yet they are so important so they will literally be the first I pack and the Aerie flower shades are super fun and I will also want to take a mirror pair as I love that look.
  • Bright happy bikini so I feel happy and confident on the beach! I try on a ton of swim to make sure I get a two piece I feel secure and sexy in so I just enjoy being on the beach.
  • A cute coverup that I can throw on over my swim at the beach, or a scarf when it cools down in the evenings.#AerieREAL Love From Iskra: Beach Bag Essentials
  • I love having a hat on holiday that can finish off an outfit and doubles up to protect my face, hair and neck!
  • A good pair of shorts that can be worn casually, over swim or even dressed up for a cool outfit. I personally love these stretchy grey pair as they are super comfy and easy to wear as well as the on trend lace up detail.
  • I take a ton of easy tees on trips. I’m all about comfort and I usually need to cover up my shoulders because i burn so easily :O
  • Usually I use perfume daily but when I’m on vacay I want something lighter and fresher so I tend to use a body spray which I will spritz throughout the day to keep smelling yummy lol.
  • Finally a new addition to my beach bag is going to be a cute purse / wallet but one that’s big enough to keep my money safe and my bits and bobs like keys / lip balm / sunnies and that way I’m going to be able to find those essentials more easily in my bag and it can double up as a cute clutch bag at night too 🙂

#AerieREAL Love From Iskra: Beach Bag Essentials

I hope you enjoyed finding out what’s going in my beach bag! I hope you all have a wonderful summer and make sure you tag your unretouched swim pics with #AerieReal. I want to see them!

Lots of love,

Iskra xxx

Love the Swim You’re In with Rae Everyday

#AerieREAL girl Raeann of Rae Everyday shares how she learned to love the swim she’s in!

“I was invited to a pool party in the third grade for a classmate’s birthday. From the moment I received the invitation, I could barely contain my excitement. Swimming was always one of my favorite activities. The day of the party arrived and I slipped into my blue one-piece swimsuit that I wore for swim practice and dashed to the pool to join the other girls playing mermaids, although the fun didn’t last long. My excitement was quickly shattered when one of the girls at the party said I looked like the Michelin Man. At first, I didn’t understand. Why would she tell me this? Surely, my nine-year-old body didn’t resemble the Michelin Man whose body was made of well, tires, that created large roles from head to toe.”

Love the Swim You're In with Rae Everyday

“From that day forward, I began to believe the hurtful words that were said to me. I would stare at my reflection and ask myself why I was so fat and why I didn’t look like the other girls in my class. Every single day I would wake up and say, I’m going to start losing weight today. This lasted throughout my teenage years. When I was in high school if I knew we would be around a pool or a hot tub I would purposely “forget” my swimsuit because I couldn’t bare the thought of someone seeing me in a swimsuit. Looking back now, it makes me sad that I let my insecurities about my body hold me back in life.”Love the Swim You're In with Rae Everyday

“At 5 foot 10 inches tall and a size 12/14, I am much larger than most women and I felt like a monster compared the women I grew up seeing in the glossy pages of magazines. My journey of accepting my body and loving myself has not been an easy one. For me, seeing women of all sizes in the media like Ashley Graham, Iskra Lawrence, and many others has been a huge factor in loving the parts of my body I once hated. I had to intentionally change my way of thinking about my body. I started by focusing on the things I loved about my body rather than the things I hated. Yes, my stomach rolls over my jeans when I sit down and my thighs are sprinkled with cellulite, but this body is what gives me life and it’s beautiful! My size does not define who I am as a person and that took me a long time to realize.”

“I’m excited to partner with Aerie as part of their #AerieReal campaign. Aerie was one of the first major brands to take a stance against retouched images and promoting an unrealistic body image for women. Aerie made a decision to showcase their models in their natural, unretouched state. They spread the conversation with the #AerieReal campaign, encouraging women to share images of their photoshop-free bodies.”

Love the Swim You're In with Rae Everyday

“I want to thank Aerie for allowing me to be a part of their #AerieReal campaign and for spreading body positivity and helping young girls and women find their confidence. I truly believe that Aerie has been a trailblazer in evoking conversations about unhealthy body standards in the fashion industry. It’s about time that we shatter the false and unrealistic beauty standards we have been surrounded by for far too long.”Love the Swim You're In with Rae Everyday
