Bloom

I have a lot not figured out in life, let me be honest, I don't have the answers. I do know that life moves in chapters, reasons and seasons. A lot of things happen and it leaves you questioning. A peer of mine was in a freak motorcycle accident and lost his life. It shook my college theatre department, it shook my friends, it shook me. Lance was early twenties, about to graduate and pursue his dreams.

His passing, has had me thinking a lot. The past few months I've been in an upheaval, a new chapter. This time of unrest is actually setting me up to bloom, to move into the next chapter. Rather than coming from a place of lacking, I'm shifting my mindset to come from gratitude. Taking a moment to breath, giving myself a pat on the back and enjoying the little things because we will never have this day again. I will choose to dance and I will continue to have his infectious spirit on my mind ++

#BEinyourskin Bikini Lookbook 2017

#BEinyourskin 
Bikini Lookbook




I meet a lot of women who tell me they're inspired by my blog, social media and that is so flattering but the truth is I am you. I am that girl still working towards loving herself, still working on being the best me, still navigating life's ups and downs. We are the same, we're all on this journey. This body positive, self love, confidence, life journey. I get emotional doing these bikini lookbooks because I put on a bikini for the first time two years ago, for the first bikini lookbook. I never got into blogging for the money, the following it was always for the little girl in me who needed to see women like myself. I know she would be proud. I don't think I ever thought I would get to this point in my self love journey. I never thought I would be wearing a string bikini in public, shit I don't think I could have done it even a year ago. I owe this one to you guys, the people who keep me going and keep me pushing myself because we deserve it. We deserve to love the skin we're in now. Not when we lose weight or when we fall in love or when we've tightened up at the gym, NOW. I promise to keep pushing myself as long as you all do the same with me. Push yourself to have the most fulfilling life, never counting yourself out because of your insecurities, never holding yourself back because you feel you aren't worthy. Let's do this for us, for the little girls in us who needed to see ourselves and for the little girls growing up today who do need this #BEinyourskin

Snatched

I'm totally procrastinating and should be packing for my Miami trip, I leave tomorrow at 5:30am. SEND HELP! I haven't packed one thing. It's about to be a bomb girls weekend, follow me on Instagram and Snapchat (briannamcdonn on snap). I'm going to try and post more for you all!

I had to show you all this look. I'm obsessed with a body suit, mesh dress and a snatched corset. It's so simple and such a look! Should I bring this to Miami?! I got this olive mesh dress from Fashion Nova. If you want to get the look, use my discount code BWORDXO.

Have an amazing weekend babes! It's Wednesday, Brianna chill haha ++
