#26 - Love Yourself at Every Point // Keneshia Raymond

4/25/2018
More
This week, we chat with Keneshia Raymond - wedding creatives educator and founder of Curvy Unicorn Bridal - about her why: why not? Keneshia is full of so much hard-earned wisdom, but the question she asks herself, "Why not you? Who else is going to do it if you don't?" sticks with us hard. She is a fierce body positivity advocate and doesn't love the idea of a romper, so of course this episode is one to play on repeat. To learn more about Keneshia and read the show notes, go to...

#24 - Give Yourself a Chance - Leslie Wong

3/28/2018
More
This week we chat with Leslie Wong, cofounder of self care-focused (and sizing inclusive) lingerie brand Burgundy Fox Co, about that moment when you first truly feel weird in your body and how life is made up of a lot of little failures.
