There is a constant pressure of being valued for the way that we look.
There is a constant barrage of expectations for keeping your body a certain way.
And yet we have so much to give beyond the way that we look.
That’s why I want to share with you my conversation with Elena Davies, who was always the “bad girl” growing up in Texas, then became a radio personality, reality TV star (you may remember her from Big Brother), and now hosts her own podcast.
After feeling like her only value was in her looks…
Now, Elena believes that the hottest girl in every room is the one that is the most confident. 🔥
Tune in to this episode to hear:
- Taboo sex topics 🤫
- How fame as impacted body struggles (and what it’s like to see yourself on TV)
- How she keeps it raw and real on Instagram (seriously, go follow her, she is hilarious)
- How she lost her virginity (and what happened afterward…)
- What makeup and beauty mean to her
- How she turned negative thoughts into a positive mindset (and that made a huge difference!)
Let’s dive in!
Introducing Bearaby weighted blankets!! These weighted blankets have been medically proven to help calm anxiety and promote deep, restorative rest, by stimulating the production of serotonin (the happy hormone), reducing cortisol (the stress hormone), and increasing melatonin (which helps you to fall–and stay–asleep). Bearaby weighted blankets are naturally weighted with layers of breathable material so you’ll stay comfortable throughout the night. Not to mention they come in the cutest colours and the soft – knit chunky fabric is STUNNING and are so aesthetically pleasing! I am in love!!
You can also rest easy knowing that Bearaby weighted blankets are good for the planet, and for the people who make them. Bearaby weaves sustainability into every part of the supply chain, using organically-grown materials and closed-loop practices that make as little impact on the environment as possible. SO DREAMY!! Pun intended!
If you are loving the sound of this as much as I am and need something natural to help you sleep better and feel calmer, try a Bearaby hand-knit weighted blanket. Find them on Instagram at @mybearaby or visit THE LINK HERE.
