Don’t you just love tattoos?
I’m a huge fan of vintage and pin up art. I suppose I’d consider myself an artist. I designed these myself.
I’m always on the look out for inspiration for my next tattoo 🤘
Mindset is everything.
What do you tell yourself that you can’t do that holds you back from living your best life?
You can’t travel?
You can’t lose weight?
You can’t make friends?
You can’t beat your depression?
You can’t change your career?
I promise you.
All of these things you can do.
You can do anything you want to do and become anything you want to be 💪🏻
Mental health, body image and eating disorder issues don’t discriminate about how you look.
As you can see by the photo on the left, I was wearing a one piece because back then I would have never worn a bikini!!
I was also in a continuous battle against my binge eating and hate for my body.
Until one day I just gave up on myself and ended up gaining over 60kgs in the 8 months that followed.
I learned my lesson the hard way.
That happiness comes from the inside, not from the outside.
Not from how you look, what you wear or how much you weigh.
But from your heart, your mind and your soul.
How you think and how you feel
Are KEYS to finding happiness.
I haven’t beat my binge eating habits YET.
But I believe I WILL beat them.
That is the difference between the girl on the left and the girl on the right.
The girl on the left was filled with so many personal issues that she let inhibit her from living her best life.
The girl on the right doesn’t let anything hold her back from enjoying her life to the fullest. She believes she can have anything she puts her mind to. She believes that limiting beliefs should be challenged.
Like, I can’t wear a bikini….?
Clearly I can 👆🏻👆🏻👆🏻👆🏻
Or I will never be happy…?
Well, finally I am 👆🏻👆🏻👆🏻👆🏻
Humans are raised with limiting beliefs from babies.
We believe them without question!
Has anyone ever told you you can’t do something and you’ve proved them wrong?
Try proving yourself wrong when you tell yourself you can’t do something.
Challenging limiting beliefs is the best thing I ever learned to do!
You can travel!
You can lose weight!
You can be rich!
You can be smart!
You can make friends!
You can read books!
You can beat your depression!
You can beat your eating disorder!
You can change your career!
You can win!
I promise you.

Why did I start Plus Nation?
Because I wanted to create a community of women who both embrace their supposed “Plus Size” figures AND fashion. Just because a woman may sport a fuller figure does not make her any less chic, stylish or sexy. For far too long we (I) have allowed others perceptions of beauty to encroach on our lives. No more 🙅🏻♀️ it’s time to embrace all our curves, all our dimples, all our “imperfections” and fill our wardrobes with pieces that envoke a feeling of authenticity! Be YOU, dress for YOU, live for YOU. Don’t hide behind the frumpy clothes pushed on us by society, join the tribe to become a member of Plus Nation and rock on trend fashion with the style and idgaf attitude you deserve 😘
website coming soon www.plusnation.com.au
Sound off in the comments what you’ve been missing from your wardrobe. Tag a friend who needs on trend plus fashion in their lives!
With love Erika xx
I continue to feed my leopard 🐆 obsession. Today in my cool leopard harem pants I was off to the Dutch festival in Berwick to eat myself silly on memorable Dutch food. Poffetjes and croquetten in abundance so I needed comfortable pants. Right! Such a wonderful day outdoors in the sunshine ☀️ and it brought back many childhood memories. And these are the best kind. Wearing top to toe @takingshapestyle who are definitely feeding my obsession at the moment. Just wait. There is more to come. #leopardobsession#takingshapestyle#beingdutch#dutchheritage
Has any one ever tried to take a photo in an Apple store? My advice don’t 🤭 I saw this cute back drop in my local Apple store and thought we could take a sneaky pic. Security ran from everywhere, but I didn’t stay to find out why. I’m wearing my gorgeous @adriftclothing dress 👗 which was perfect for today’s cooler autumn weather. I kind of almost blend in. #adrift#adriftclothing#easystyling#stylingmadeeasy

LISTENING TO OUR INTUITION ✨
How often do you ignore Red lights in relationships?
I’m talking all types of relationships!
Often we dismiss our brains signals.
Then when the friendship or relationship falls apart - all of these red light memories come FLOODING back to us.
‘I knew it’
We say to ourselves.
Yep, ya sure did sista!
LISTEN TO YOUR INTUITION.
It’s stronger and smarter than you give it credit for.
As much as you should listen to your intuition, don’t completely ignore the opinions and advice of those who love you! They can sometimes see things that you can’t ❤️
Some red lights might be:
✨ They make you feel bad
✨ They make negative comments
✨ They let you down
✨ They arent they present with you when you hang out
✨ They only care about themselves
✨They manipulate you to do things purely for their own benefit
Y’all know I’m all about CUTTING THE F out of negative people from your life.
If you haven’t done this before do yourself a favour and SET YO SELF FREEEEEE!!!!
And make space for magical relationships ✨✨✨
What has someone done to you only for you to realise later what they were doing? Did you end up cutting them out of your life or giving them another chance? After all people can learn and Gange if they really want to! Comment below 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻
