    We are in the last phase of loving yourself, Phase IV. I am going to touch a little bit about dating in this section. Even if you already have a partner, there is still valuable information in this section for you as well so, read on Pineapples. In the past, I worried a lot about my body and how I look and how I can come off like a huge dork a majority of the time and how blunt my personality is. I avoided dating and men and a lot of social gatherings out of fear of rejection for the above things. When I finally decided to put myself out…

So, what you eat does matter quite a bit. Many mental illnesses and medical…

    One of the best T-shirts, Feminine Funk, has put out says “She embraced her stretch marks, fell in love with her cellulite, flaunted her rolls & gave zero f*cks what anyone said, and she lived happily ever after. The end.” My sweet, sweet pineapple you can only stand tall if you learn and apply self-love to your everyday routine. I know this section is going to sound like some of the same things that you have heard people try to drill into your head over the years.

    How to be a Pineapple: Ananas Comosus

    I am sure that the first question that went through your head when you saw this blog was “What does her domain name say?” My domain name is in French and does indeed say how to be a pineapple. The reason I choose French is that I have a small architectural fetish for the Eiffel Tower and I dream of a day where I get to spend Christmas in Paris! That is a total pineapple goal for me. What is a pineapple goal? It is a dream that has the ability to become a reality. What are your pineapple goals in life? All women have them, and you have the…
