I’m already a pretty shy person, even though the shameless self promotion of this space may give you a different impression. But when it comes to bikinis, I cringe just a little. I am a confident woman, and I love myself and my body but it’s easy to feel like people are judging that body, especially in a place like Miami where everyone is stunning. Where big asses are plentiful and just a few thousand dollars away and breasts….are brrrrrrrreasts (say that like you’re motor boating)! I consider my breasts New York breasts, if that makes any sense. They are petite and giggly and like to go free in tee shirts because they are barely there anyway. The right one is smaller and used to be pierced, but I’m a klutz so after 2 years the piercing was removed. I have also noticed that everything is not as firm as it once was, even though I’m about 10 pounds lighter than I was 5 months ago. But here’s the thing, I am aging naturally and I try to eat right (have you been watching my Blue Apron cooking snaps: MonroeSteele) and work out but I like that I have a woman’s body. I like that my body is soft and supple yet strong and that my tits giggle and so does my bum. But don’t get it twisted, I know how to work my angles.

Get with the White Bikini is really pops on Melanin
You can’t see it but this spot has the most amazing view of the Harbor in Miami. I had such a fabulous time at the Viceroy Miami for my birthday. I am already looking forward to visiting again. 2016 will definitely be a year of travel and indulgence and just living and loving life. Everyone has hangups about their bodies or their personalities, and its good to remember that when you start mentally beating yourself up. No one is perfect. Even the most beautiful people with the most perfect bodies have their own demons, (cough Halle Berry cough). Perfection is boring. Perfection is a snore fest. Perfection is also not attainable and not realistic and frankly just idiotic. The only things that can be perfect are things. The perfect fitting jeans, the perfect So Kate Louboutin heel, the perfect Viceroy Miami corner junior suite. The perfect person..no.
I’m going to go eat a doughnut now and then do some squats.
Gotta get my beach body ready for Summer 16.
Have a happy holiday!
