I had a vision !!! Soft earthy dyed sarongs and a group of woman celebrating not only motherhood but womanhood !! so I contacted the beautiful Amy from Bonnie and Dyed and she went to work creating. I have to admit I sent crazy colour ideas with different patterns and may have changed my mind many times !! The finished result was beautiful fabric to wrap around a womans body while I tried to capture her soul !! 5 amazing mamas put there hands up to jump in and help me start a chain reaction of self love. It sounds silly saying this out loud but in my head I wanted to change the world – one mama at a time !!
Our children grow up wanting to be just like there parents. 8mths ago I looked at my 11mth old baby girl and I realised I didnt set the bar very high and the love for myself was really pretty poor !!! I had never shown my legs to the world and even in summer covered up to mid calf. In that moment standing in noosa sweltering in my long pants I walked into a store, tried on a short jumpsuit and walked out showing a part of my soul (and body) that I had always covered up. I embarked on a journey of self imposed self love ! I am not ashamed to say I did start out by faking it, by looking in the mirror and reflecting a kindness I had only shown others (never myself). I embraced my curves and a body that had grown and birth the most amazing 2 humans i could ever have hoped for and realised I actually rock !! Even saying that out loud sounds silly (contemplating deleting that part lol)
So with all my lady lumps and bumps I decided self love was dam well something we all deserved !! With that and my daughters future in my head I started out on this project !! To change the world for her … one mama at a time !!
