Thursday Thunder: Morgan Reid

Morgan Reid interview

We met a couple of years ago in New York and had the best time. She let me sleep in her bed -I mean, that’s love… And showed me around Brooklyn and other cool parts of New York. I even did a shoot on her rooftop (hello dream!). Later on she visited me in Amsterdam and I returned the favor of taking her around my city. Morgan Reid is a special kinda person. She’s a model, but to me she’s a free spirited artist. Her drawings and paintings are so dope. She lives big and bold. Like selling all your stuff and buying a plane ticket to travel through Europe. Morgan Reid, a girl you just have to meet -mic drop. So here you go…

Hello beach body!

Beach body - Mayra Louise

How to have a beach body? Have a body. Go to the beach. Right. I know this to be true, now, but for years it wasn’t that simple for me. Life just wasn’t a beach. Even though I loved the beach, the sea and being sun kissed, I didn’t like my body on the beach. Especially not in a bathing suit or bikini. I felt like I didn’t belong there. The beach is a place for slim, toned and perfect people. At least that was what I told myself.

Self-love: Happy is not a dress size

happy is not a dress size - mayra louise

As a journalist and plus size model I write and smile for a living. THE PUBLISIZED is a combination of these two.
