OMG—That’s Me?!

From Naughty to Nice

Whether your brand of sexy is naughty or nice, one thing’s true for all our dolls:

They’re nervous as hell about their boudoir session.

Trust me. I’ve been there.

And I’m gonna let you in on a little secret:

It wasn’t so much that I was nervous about what to wear or how my photos would turn out—Ashley and Maria had me covered there—it was the anxiety of feeling unworthy. Like I didn’t deserve to treat myself to a boudoir experience.

In fact, in the days and weeks leading up to my session, overwhelming self-doubt began to invade my brain. Who the hell do I think I am? How selfish and self-centered am I? I must be pretty self-involved and arrogant to think I’m worthy of a boudoir shoot.

Then it hit me! I was shaming myself for loving myself and putting that self-love front and center, ahead of everything (and everyone) else. Essentially, I was admonishing myself for valuing and embracing myself. Not just as a woman, but as a human being deserving and worthy of self-care and self-connection.

Because that’s what a Simply Lush experience is all about—

Connecting to your true essence; stepping into your value and standing in your power.

Once I gave myself permission to celebrate myself, to honor my personal journey and evolution, I had so much fun that I didn’t want my boudoir session to end!

When I saw my finished photos and received my gift prints, I was saying the same thing this week’s model said:

“OMG—That’s Me?!”

And it is. No body-alteration, no smoke and mirrors, no Photoshop fraudulence.

It’s all you, baby.
