The Girl Who Spent Thousands to Look Like a Princess Tells All About Her Weight

Anyone remember my amazing friend Sarah Ingle?  She was instantly viral for “spending $14,000 to look like a Disney princess” article here She INSTANTLY had over 300,000 followers within days… DAYS!!  Everyone wanted to watch the freak show which they were sadly disappointed didn’t exist.

Sarah owns Princess Ever After in the Denver Colorado area.  Its a high end company with beautiful custom wigs and gowns.

Sarah’s current following on Instagram after the viral insanity settled is 106k… all from an article that went viral. This article claimed all kinds crazy stuff and the numbers kept going up.  By the time the article reached Asia the articles were claiming she had spent millions… $14k as a business expense turned into millions, the click bait was real!  The oddest story was Inside Edition called Sarah at work on her unpublished phone number, it wasn’t in the directory and even her co-workers struggled to get ahold of this information.  The blow up was insane, I remember how odd it was seeing her face everywhere… I can only imagine what it was like for her.

What came out of all of her sudden Instagram fame came brutal skinny shaming on Instagram that is RELENTLESS! This photo is edited, not for skin tone, not for smoothness but Sarah literally made herself look like she weighed more to avoid the horrible comments.  People mask their shaming as “concerned” and “you’ve lost so much weight.”  Sarah hasn’t lost any weight!

Any time she posts a picture in a swimsuit, crop top or shorts her Instagram page erupts with angry posts about how people are “worried about her.”  When anyone is so afraid of back lash of posting photos of the way they just are naturally we need to examine how we discuss weight, or the fact that we feel comfortable at all telling a woman what her body SHOULD be.  How about we love people for who they are?  Lets stop and really examine the conversation!

3 Sheet Masks that Changed my Skin

I am sitting here in bed writing this of course with an amazing sheet mask on… which one you ask? Its almost always one of these 4.  Each one has its own amazing benefits.

My number one favorite (and the one I am currently wearing is the Tosowoong Pure Propolis Mask.  Its for sure my go to when I just need a nice pick me up.  It soothes anytime I can see or feel a breakout happening it even helps with that.  Propolis is my favorite ingredient for soothing angry skin hands down.  They claim an entire bottle of essence is in every mask.  Im not sure I believe that claim but I will say it has the most amazing effects:

  • Very hydrating
  • Firming
  • Calming/Soothing (Great for acne and inflammation)
  • Serious brightening power

SKINFOOD is one of my favorite brands to this day.  Their philosophy is that their products are food for your skin and should be as natural as possible.  They make some of my favorite products (ill cover them another day) that are cult level and I tend to agree with them.  The fantastic effects in my opinion are:

  • Brightening effects
  • Firming
  • Super moisturizing

Leaders make a fantastic line of sheet masks easily available all over including Ulta (WHAT?!?!) They have a mask for any and every occasion.  They do exactly as they recommend and this one is no exception. It really combats some of the biggest struggles of aging:

  • Evens skin tone
  • Brightens tired skin
  • Firming

Sheet masks are like a mini vacation, it forces you to stop and calm down for a while and kist take some “you time” while being so refreshing and kind to your skin… Did I mention all of these make my wrinkles vanish? YUP!  I am all about the anti aging!

Love and Light

How This Mermaid Traded her Soul for Fins

This week I spoke with the spunky and fun Miki Leann about her experiences as a certain mermaid friend of ours.  I am loving the candid conversations I continue to have with my princess friends and am grateful that they want the world to know the reality of it all.

She worked for the parks for only a year and a half but the brainwashing stays with her till this day.  She was hired right around her 18th birthday on the west coast after 7 auditions (are we noticing a pattern yet?).  On her very first day of training she knew this wasn’t the fairy tale she thought it was gonna be.

The competition to wear the smallest dress was viscous and brutal.  As an 18 year old its easy to be the skinniest girl in the room and in these entertainment green rooms that puts a giant target on your back.  The harassment because the others were starving themselves became relentless.

 

“There were girls who eat nothing and girls who will eat nothing but chicken nuggets and then throw it all up, everyone has an eating disorder.”  To this day food is a struggle because that was “normal” and “expected.”  When everyday for a year and a half you are made to feel guilty for eating normally, eating nothing but carrots all day becomes the new normal.  Body shaming goes both ways and both are destructive.

The way you are is never enough, because the wig stylists didn’t want to get her a new wig it was thinning in the front because other people were wearing my wig… at the time I wasn’t working often. And I was a performer who often flipped her hair and played with it, and I guess photopass caught a picture of my blonde hair showing in the front and underneath, so cosmo at the end of the day handed me a razor.

The guilt and shame of her size and the constant harassment and name calling “I ended up jumping from 90-120 lbs and then after Disney 20 more.” There is no winning, if you are thin you need to eat and are harassed and shamed for it and if your silhouette is “not ideal”(aka too “large” in their minds).

Miki still struggles to this day to have a healthy relationship with food and self worth.  “People need to know how toxic that environment is”  Her struggle isn’t just her own.  Its the story I hear time and time again about the brain washing of “You aren’t enough” in the theme park environment, how else to they keep people accepting slave wages and feel honored to do so?

You are enough! You are so enough!  Its unbelievable how enough you are! -Sierra Boggess

5 Epic Summer Skirts for Under $25

 

Every summer at least in Florida is the epic battle of staying cool(ish) in the extreme heat while staying even remotely cute seems to be lost… a lot.  I scoured Amazon to bring you 5 adorable spring and summer ready skirts for a price everyone can afford

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lets start with this AMAZING tulle skirt, not sure what else needs to be said other than its under $25 and comes with that adorable sash.  Pair with a plain white t some gorgeous pearls and we have a winning outfit!

 

Skirt #2 is this super fun polka dot skirt, IT HAS POCKETS!!! Its a super lightweight material that breathes wonderfully and is just plain fun.  Its dressy enough for the office but can be casual with a tank and flip flops… Seriously LOVE this!  (And I got a ton of compliments)

Now this is a fun flirty and totally lined skirt available in 10 colors.  Its super full as you can see and the wide waist band is so incredibly flattering.  I got this in the pink color and the breezy nature of it is really going to make it a go to summer option and its under $20! SCORE!

 

 

Now this is a really fun casual skirt (that I highly recommend shorts under)  Its around $10 and is really fun for everyday, its far from office appropriate but it certainly is fun for running errands or going to a theme park.  Its a very sturdy skirt fabric with a bit of weight to it.  Great skirt that is a great bargain!

 

This is such a fun work appropriate skirt.  The lace takes this up another notch and makes it a really unique skirt.  Its very flattering and fitted.  The skirt is a great length to make your legs look longer with out sacrificing for our shorter friends ;).  The skirt feels luxurious and the stretch makes it really practical.  Ill be wearing this regularly at the office!

 

Trying all of the outfits out at the office, well minus the short skirt, was certainly a fun experiment and I got so many compliments.  Have fun saving a few bucks on Amazon with some great skirts.

Love and Light,

Jess
