Y’all 2019 has been one of the best years for me , cannot deny it! but 2019 also tried to take me out I was gearing up for a wonderful couple of weeks went from celebration an anniversary with bae in Serbia, flew to NY for a quick job then had a quick shoot in London before heading to L.A to celebrate a fruitful yearlong partnership with my #sephorasquad family.While in London I started experiencing severe abdominal pain and was rushed to the emergency room- they dismissed it as an inflammation and sent me back to my hotel with some pain meds.The next morning it got worse, while barely conscious, I asked the hotel to call me an ambulance. They discovered that I had several blood clots in my leg, thigh, abdomen and near an IVC filter near my Lungs (which is a medical device that prevents clots from entering the lungs.) up until this emergency visit I had no idea I had such filter (which I assumed was placed there during my chemo days 14yrs ago) – nonetheless this filter saved my life.Lots of unanswered questions which I’ll have to figure out once I’m back to the States but I’m finally out of the hospital, in less pain, resting and taking blood thinners.Unfortunately flying puts me at risk of a pulmonary embolism therefore I’m stuck across the pond until after Christmas. Hope y’all are gearing up for a wonderful holiday season.(Thanks @sephora for the flowers  and to everyone who took time to message and call me- love you all

Even though I’m a full blown adult there are moments in my life when I feel like a big girl. A couple of days ago I started an injection therapy to hopefully reduce inflammation in my lower spine and get back to wearing my prosthetic leg. Today I administered the shot myself (which I’ll be doing for the next 5 days)- can barely sit on the only butt cheek I have - but this big girl move needed to be celebrated with some hot chocolate and a lemon tart - pain management can be both physically and emotionally draining so to anyone who can relate I’m here to tell you , you got this!  #mamacax

The city that never sleeps is known for its diversity and its subway. people from different walks of lives cross paths daily. Whether they’re going home to their family, heading to work, or meeting up with friends. It may not be the most accessible place but this is the place you get to witness this city’s true diversity and see different bodies get dressed to face the day. Very fitting that @universalstandard brought its size inclusive collection to the subway in their latest campaign. when I say size inclusive I’m talking from size 00 to 40, my whole outfit is from @universalstandard (including the boots: sizes 6-13 available) - Use code MAMACAXX20 for 20% off your order. #mamacax #ad

An ode to all our scars, old and new, big or small, visible or not. May they not prevent us from living happily, May they not hold us prisoners in our own bodies, may we not be ashamed of them. Amen!
