Some day I really wish that our paths cross. Your work out routine and motivation?  My work out routine focuses both on mental and physical fitness, so I start with  yoga in the morning followed by meditation and then towards the evening I go for a run…

It’s the place where Farinetti, the inventor of “eataly” comes from, but also Ferrero (Nutella) you can imagine the quality of food, and wine over there! Another place that to me it’s unbelievably good for food it’s Urbino and all the Little places nearby, it is a part of Italy called montefeltro, they make the best handmade pasta I have ever tried, that’s where my family comes from. How come the Italians are the best dressed people in the world?  Have you watched “the great beauty” by Paolo Sorrentino? That movie shows how magical Italy is. I guess the way we grow up surrounded by art, by an immense sense of poetry in our life, with a culture based on beauty, makes our sense of style. It’s why in every…

Vera Havrda – ‘Women like Iskra Lawrence & Ashley Graham Helped Me’

WHO IS VERA HAVRDA? Vera Havrda, 22, is half Czech and half Swiss. She grew up in the Czech Republic but at the 14 years old, her family moved to Switzerland to start a new life. In her own words.. It wasn’t easy at all but in the end it made me stronger and I got to know who I really was. Since a very young age it wasn’t easy for me to be …me! When I was 6 years old they diagnosed with me a thyroide disfunction. I was gaining and gaining weight and nobody knew why. This disease changed everything. Since that time food and diets were a permanent topic in my life. I started to hate myself and everything that had to do with my body – I hated clothes because they never fit, I hated food because I liked it too much and I hated every single part of my body. Between the age of 12 and 20 I had several eatings disorders. My recovery took a long time and I am still fighting. Sometimes I still have struggles to accept myself and the way I look like but women…

Top 6 Curvy Girls on Instagram

As I’ve said for a longtime, if you’re at a house party and Mila Kunis walks in, you might tip your hat and try your best one-liner. If Christina Hendricks walks into the same house party you’d drop kick Mila Kunis to the curb, phone the wife tell her it’s over, and then just follow Christina Hendricks around for the rest of your days throwing rose petals in her shadow. I’m sure I had a point when I started this sentence, regardless, here are some of the best curvy women you should be following on Instagram. Jen Giggles  INFO: Fabulously awkward; yet, awesomely zany. San Francisco/Bay Area CA. FACT: ‘The ubiquity of “curvy” is just a gloss of body acceptance, not actual body acceptance. Once you start looking for it, for every positive article about celebrating bodies of all shapes and sizes, there’s an equally negative one; though we’re celebrating new shapes and sizes, it all adds up to zero‘. Lauren Bans. Diana Sirokai INFO: Plus size model, but I just Say MODEL. London, UK Body Positivity / Self Love  #ConfidenceWithDiana. Inquiries Management: info@bridgemodels.co.uk FACT: A good aspect that indicates curviness is…
