Y’all, as I grabbed my foot with both hands in #ekapadarajakapotasana FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER today, I felt the imaginary fingers of @kathrynbudig & @amyippoliti on my chest and shoulders, giving me the gentle push I needed to reach this goal. This pose has challenged me for months and the guidance of both these women  (via their classes on @yogaglo) has been monumentally instrumental in my progress.  Basically, it may sound cliche, but I would not be here today without them. Thank you, Kathryn. Thank you, Amy. Though we have never met, your presence in my practice has been utterly transformative. So many of you guys ask me for advice about how to jumpstart your practice- for real, check out the classes these ladies teach on @yogaglo.com. They teach at a variety of levels and they both have an infectious enthusiasm for the beauty of yoga that could damn near change your life. Am I being hyperbolic? Probably not, honestly. 

By the way, my pants and headband are by Kobieta and my top is by @forever21.
Also, the winner of a custom Kobieta headband (like the one I wear all the time, but in the color of your choice) is @catsandfries! Shoot me an e-mail @ mynameisjessamyn@gmail.com for details on how to collect your prize. Also, if you guys order from www.shopkobieta.com and enter JESSBLOG at checkout you’ll get 15% off sitewide!

Been drawing this sucker for like two hours and feel like I’ve hardly gotten anywhere. Time to take a break.

new undies: cute stretchmarks: also cute

No no no and NO stretch marks are never cute!! wtf too lazy to go get some cocoa butter and use it daily? We all have stretch marks but we can get rid of it.. People should take care of themselves and if cocoa butter didnt work for you make an appointment for a laser stretch mark removal dont be a lazy ass

hey quick question: what’s your fuckin damage

all stretch marks are beautiful no exceptions 

stretch marks are perfectly fine and natural and beautiful, free lightning bolt tattoos yo
cocoa butter is a preventative that does not always work, and smells and stains clothes and oh yeah, since a lot of people get stretch marks just from growing NOT from weight, theyd have to slather their whole body and no one really wants to do that or smell like that so strongly.
laser treatment? really? you want people to pay $1000+/appt (usually takes a few treatments) to get rid of something perfectly natural because you’ve named yourself standard of the fucking world and think we all live to please you? most people dont have that money and if they do thats not what they want to spend it on.
also fuck you.

I usually don’t reblog ladies in undies, but for real. Don’t fuckin’ knock people over stretchmarks, or anything on their bodies for that matter. I’ve been underweight all my life and have them from growing. They happen. The just do.
