    Tanning is a must for me all day every day! It makes you look slimmer and it’s super flattering for any body type!

    You look great! Some people just like to be cruel. I get bloated really easily too and it’s always been something I’m self-conscious about.

    Oh my gosh, I can’t believe someone would be so mean and rude to you! That’s horrible! Please ignore that person and know you look AMAZING! Your style and personality totally shine through in these photos and I adore this bathing suit on you. Stunning!

    Firstly I must say you are GORGEOUS!! I love that swimsuit, it is so lovely and you definitely slayed the look. I find it so sad when other women (if it was really a woman) try to bring each other down. As you said they have a larger issue and its not with you. Jealousy is a sickness that some are not strong enough to overcome. Continue doing the excellent work you are, never stop being fab and tell me where you got that darling hat!

    First, your body is rocking! Second, thank you, thank you, thank you, for sharing! My favorite quote is, “Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.” Trolls and bullies need to watch their words because you never know the state of the person you’re speaking to. I love reading your posts! I appreciate you sharing your story; you are not alone girl! Keep doing what you’re doing, we love you!

    I’m so sorry you had to experience this kind of hate online. It’s absolutely disgusting that someone would go out of their way to comment such horrible words. I must say girl, that I loved your approach to this post, PREACH! You look so fab in this retro style bathing suit. The whole purpose of blogging is to be true to yourself and share your uniqueness with the world. In times like this, the people who follow you and support you see all that is great about you. Don’t let those idiots get to you, just keep doing you because you’re beyond fab.

    First of all, you look fabulous! I admire anyone who publicly puts themselves out there and shares insecurities or daily struggles with the world. I love that you handled your response in this way. There is no need to give further attention the person. Move forward with those who support you and ignore the rest.

    First of all, you are stunning in all your posts! And I LOVE this swimsuit. And second, I am so sorry to hear this happened to you. I have honestly come to the conclusion that there are people who are just not mentally stable and don’t understand that people who blog or have huge online social media presences are actually people. It’s all about making themselves feel better by cutting someone down who they don’t know and will never actually see in person. I am so sorry to hear this happened to you. This person sounds like an especially nasty one. But hey, you haven’t made until you have haters, right? 😉

    I hope you are having a much better week now! And keeping rocking your awesome photos and outfits! 🙂

    When I started blogging, I knew I would open myself up to a world of criticism and unfair expectations of who I should be and how I should look. You are doing a fabulous job and you look incredible… and like a REAL woman!

    Ugh, why are people like that?! You do a good job of staying true to who you are regardless of the way others are. That’s very encouraging to others who face the same negativity. Your swimsuit is super cute…just love your style!

    To be honest with you, I would not have given this woman another thought. Anyone who acts in such a distasteful and nasty way does not deserve the courtesy of a response. Yes, I agree that she obviously needs help but I think a person who acts this way would be very unlikely to learn anything positive from the response. We can only hope some how help finds her and helps to bring her some happiness and positiveness in her life. I’m so pleased you were strong in recognizing it for what it is and not letting it get you down.

    You look beautiful. I absolutely love your swimsuit it is so cute. And your heart towel is awesome. No one should judge anyone let the person who is free of sin or the perfect person cast the first stone. That person doesn’t exist therefore no one should feel the need to criticize anyone.

    It’s interesting to me to see the difference in trolls depending on the bog niche. I think in fashion people compare themselves and feel fine leaving negative comments.
    I write a travel blog and have only had a few trolls. Once I decided to allow the comment through and it actually caused the page to receive quite a bit of engagement because other readers thought his comment was so rude. It was a good lesson.

    I can’t believe the things people say! It’s so rude and some of those comments–especially saying someone needs to lose weight–can be so damaging. You look beautiful! And that swimsuit is so, so cute!!!

    OMG!!!! I can totally relate!! I love how you handled the internet trolls!! I’ve had some nasty comments too (written in really poor English, btw) but the way you handled it: LIKE A BOSS!!! Loved it! I’ve also been told I need a tan (heck, I’m pale, get over it people, it’s called Snow White and I’m rockin’ it!) and that I need to lose weight 😂…at some point the tanning and lose weight thing did bother me…now…I just laugh. But as you can see, I could relate to this post a lot! I feel ya! I absolutely loved how real you kept it and how genuine you are able to write. I felt like I was listening to you! On another note, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your pics!!!!! You look like a total BOMBSHELL!!!! Gorgeous and super chic! (take that Leah around Houston, Tx!) Loved this post!!!! Thanks for sharing it! 🙂 😻

    Aww sorry to hear about the troll comments but am glad u decide to leave it unpublished. I used to get some on my IG and I would delete them & move on. No point dwelling with those negativity that sucks energy out of us.. and wow I’m impressed that u can go gluten & dairy free!! I’m a dairy lover and its hard to wean myself off it. I do have serious bloating issues which I’m rubbing lots of Digize essential oils to soothe. Guess I need to start eating clean to lose those excess fats!! You look amazing in the swimsuit btw ❤️

    So sorry to hear about this nasty troll! I too have been harassed online and in person for my extremely pale complexion. It’s beyond ridiculous and also rather racist to criticize someone for the color of their skin in my book. Thank you for sharing this post!
