Chatelaine Magazine June/July 2019

Look mom, I’m a covergirl! ⁣⁣

I can still remember being a kid in the kitchen with my mom excitingly cooking up the recipes we’d  find in Chatelaine Magazine.

⁣⁣Now to be featured on one of the covers of the June/July Summer issue?! Talk about a full circle moment…I am so honoured.

⁣⁣It’s funny. I always tell people to walk confidently into opportunities but the truth is when I was first offered this opportunity I didn’t immediately say yes.

⁣⁣They told us the photos  would not be digitally retouched. This was about celebrating our REAL bodies and I’ve gotta admit my nerves set in.

⁣⁣Loving our bodies is a work in progress when we live in a society that indoctrinates us into believing body hating messages. However, my nerves didn’t overshadow my excitement. I walked onto that set and met some fabulous women along this journey featured on the other covers.⁣

At the end of the day I know I am good enough just the way I am. ⁣⁣

My body is more than one body part. My body is ME in my entirety! ⁣⁣

This is my body and I’m going to celebrate my beauty, my brilliance, my strength and my story every minute I’ve got!

⁣⁣All five covers are currently on the newstands!
