Fashion Nova is scamming people. Link in bio for another video. It will take you to my channel. I really contemplated long and hard before ultimately making the decision to make this video. As you all know, my channel is all about funny, happy, positive videos. Just trying to put out the best reviews possible for you guys. I guess this technically is a review also, but it’s on a much different level. I have promoted Fashion Nova on multiple occasions in the past here on Instagram & twice on my YouTube channel. After this experience I felt obligated to update you, because I never want to recommend something to my followers that is going to make you unhappy or cause you to lose your hard earned money. So, that’s why I ended up making the video. Please watch this before ever shopping from Fashion Nova again. I feel strongly about this, because if it weren’t for the things I did originally to protect myself I would have been scammed! If you check YouTube you will see videos after videos of all the people have gotten scammed. And if you look at the comment section of those videos you’ll find even more people who got screwed over too. This is my message to try and help protect you.
If you or someone you know is being harassed, online or in person, call Think Defense to set up a free consultation. Our experienced attorneys can give you options and guide you through the choice that best fits your needs.
Client Testimonial: A person I knew from work asked me out one day, but I politely declined. He asked again and again, each time I said no. He began getting more and more aggressive, eventually he followed me after work and found out where I lived, where my gym was and where I liked to go with my friends. I thought I could handle the situation myself, but he didn't seem to get the message. Eventually, his behavior became a distraction for everyone I worked with and an embarrassment for me. He was fired after he was asked to stop by the owner of the company, but he refused. I constantly asked myself if I did anything to lead him on or send the wrong message. I thought somehow I was responsible for his actions. Even after he was fired, he came back to my office and refused to leave. I called the police several times, but he just kept coming back. I didn't know what else to do. This guy was just not getting the message, if he was willing to get fired rather than stop harassing me, what else was he capable of? He knew where I lived, he knew where I worked, what kind of car I drove. One day while driving to work, I looked in my rear view mirror and I saw him following me. I was stopped at a red light, he pulled over in front of me and attacked me while I was in my car. I was able to drive away and make it to a safe place, but experience terrified me. I constantly looked over my shoulder when I was in a public place, I couldn't sleep at night, I began to wonder where he would pop up next. I finally contacted Think Defense. They helped me restraining order and I could finally breathe a sigh of relief. I wish I would have called sooner. Thank you Think Defense for giving me my life back. (This picture was take by me right after I got the restraining order, it sums up how relaxed and free I feel now.) #thinkdefense#restrainingorder#protectiveorder#peaceofmind#harassment#workplaceharassment#protectyourself
Opinions can be gems, but they can also be rocks. Heavy on your mental space inflicting confusion on your identity if you’re not self-aware of another’s destructive capabilities.
Nothing wrong with the feeling of being torn between who you are and who you want to be. But there is something wrong when who you want to be is based off someone else’s opinion of ... who?
Cause it’s not based off of who you are ... what they are projecting isn’t viewed from your perspective. Don’t lose yourself in someone else’s perspective. Lose the part of you that would consider altering for a vision that doesn’t fit your scene.

Очень много информативных, полезных и безусловно необходимых постов посвящено абьюзивным отношениям, где один из двух людей является абьюзером, а второй - жертвой.
Только я заметила, что почти всегда в этом контексте речь идёт именно об отношениях, связывающих двоих разных людей.
Но что с таким явлением, как самоабьюз?
Отношения внутри себя, со своим "я", в которых ты сам морально, ментально и даже физически проявляешь жестокость к самому себе.
Главный парадокс и абсурд заключаются в том, что это отклонение от нормы, ставшее уже обыденностью.
Диеты, рпп, сравнивание себя с кем-то другим (особенно не в свою пользу) - это самоабьюз.
Жить или встречаться с кем-то, кого не любишь, потому что ну а с кем ещё, да и это вполне удобно - это самоабьюз.
Заставлять себя ходить на ненавистную работу, не желая отказываться от стабильности, или, сомневаясь в своих же силах, попробовать что-то новое - это снова самоабьюз.
Скрывать себя, свои желания, предпочтения, надевать маски, отказываться от самого себя, чтобы кому-то понравиться или кого-то не разочаровать.
Страх отказать кому-либо в просьбе. Делать всё для кого-то другого, не прося ничего в ответ. Терпеть унижения и крики, а не редко и побои от того же мужа-абьюзера, считая, что ты сама в этом виновата. Ненавидеть себя. Загонять себя в угол. Жертвовать собой. Всё это самоабьюз. Насилие над собственной душой и телом.
А мы даже не осознаём, что изо дня в день мы издеваемся и истязаем самих же себя.
Я даже термина такого, честно говоря, найти не смогла. Надеюсь, просто плохо искала.
I have a video I made that I will be posting on IGTV today about exactly this! Remember not to load yourself down with shopping bags so much that you can’t defend yourself! This is a huge one people, even though it sounds like a no brainer! I think we are all guilty of trying to make one trip and carrying as much as we can to make that happen! If you know you’re going to be shopping big time, bring something that will help you carry them all out! A larger bag that you can put multiple bags in, a backpack, etc.
Let’s talk FRAGRANCE. And why I am trying to avoid it like the plague.
And I don’t just mean perfume and cologne - read the labels of almost any product you put on your body; it probably contains fragrance. Which is surprising, considering how incredibly toxic fragrance is to our bodies.
First, when fragrance is listed as an ingredient, companies legally don’t have to disclose what chemicals they used to make that scent. And they don’t, because the chemicals usually aren’t pretty.
Fragrance is a known hormone disruptor. Our hormones are responsible for so much re keeping our body functioning and keeping us feeling our best. A hormone disruptor is a synthetic chemical that acts like a hormone when absorbed into the body, disrupting the body’s normal functions.
Hormone disruptions can lead to infertility, metabolic issues, breast cancer, other cancers, preterm births, birth defects, diabetes, obesity, and more. This is why it is so important to learn about and avoid hormone disruptors in our lives.
For example, Phthalates are commonly used to make fragrance last longer, and are associated with damage to the male reproductive system and infertility. These chemicals are great at accumulating in our bodies and have even been found in breast milk. In kids, phthalates have been linked to obesity, asthma, behavioral problems, early puberty in girls, and more.
Fragrance formulas are also considered to be a top 5 known allergen, meaning they can cause skin irritations and make conditions like asthma worse. Be wary of lotions with fragrance, as they are likely making your skin worse over time.
Fragrance ingredients are also linked to greater risk of cancer.
We use fragrance all the time. It’s in candles, soap, house products, skincare, shampoo, hand sanitizer, etc. It’s time to rethink this! There are natural products without fragrance on the market - read your labels!
This company @skylar provides non-toxic perfumes with scents derived from essential oils and botanicals. They let you sample a few scents before choosing your full bottle. I love mine (although I will forever miss you Chloe perfume...)
Just in case there is any discrepancy out there... I’m all for women’s rights. I love being a woman and speaking up for what I believe in. I think women are amazing.
Coming from Africa, I have seen mothers walk for miles, every day for weeks; to sit all day, next to their sick child’s hospital bed and feed them because there aren’t enough nurses.
I only want the young women that I consult to every day, to see in themselves what I see in them. I want all women to be happy and comfortable with their choices. I am raising daughters and I only want them to love and respect themselves in everything that they do. Those who know me, would attest to my lack of judgement of others. I believe that life is the lesson. I am still learning. And I am always making mistakes. But I don’t judge, my focus is on growth. #learning#strongwomen#advocacy#saynoifyouwant#selfconfidence#selfbelief#rights#speakup#strongbutsoft#vulnerability#protectyourpeace#protectyourself#goodchoices#grow#learnfrommistakes

Это последние, честно.
Подвести итог хочу обещанием самой себе. О том, что наконец избавлюсь от своей огромной кучи комплексов, что приму и полюблю себя целиком и полностью, что прекращу слишком много думать, что оставлю ту Сашу, возвращения которой так боюсь, в далёком прошлом.
И надеюсь, все эти фотографии, на которых я вижу то, что мне по-настоящему нравится, не пройдут мимо, и помогут мне в этом.
Потому что мне надоело делать вид, что у меня самооценка - что надо. Я хочу, чтобы она таковой на самом деле была.
