Self-love is vital for a happy and healthy life, and I want all my buxom babes to be happy and healthy. There are lots of different ways to care for oneself, so it doesn’t matter what you choose, it just matters that you’re doing it. Show your body a little love with a bubble bath, a spa trip, a photo shoot or a new outfit. It can be hard, but people have been discussing self-love for thousands of years.
