    Hey there, recently came across your site and I have an eyelash emergency and was wondering if you had any true fixes you have tried. I have recently tried eyelash extensions and had them removed recently because they just weren’t for me and I just knew that my lashes were going to be half what they were, despite them saying they would be fine. So now my eyelashes are half as long as they use to be and im wondering if they will grow back? and if you have ever tried any products that promise to improve length etc. Thanks so much!

    I am 19 years old almost 20. I’ve struggled with depression for a long time mostly since my family fell apart when I was 14. I’ve never had a real relationship with my mother and even when we talk about sex its usually a conversation consisting of details from her sex life with her boyfriend. No advice or tips, just bragging. She wasn’t around when I had my first period and I had no one to answer my thousands of questions. When I watch your videos about periods and sex and all of that, I could not help but wonder how many girls like me you were helping. I wish I had had videos like this to watch back then and someone who would explain to me that everything was okay. Because I had no one. So thank you for helping the girls that you do from feeling like I did.
    My weight was never something that was really a big deal to me, of course I always wanted to be that skinny girl in my class. But it wasn’t until I reached my freshman year of college that it really started to bother me. I had had this boyfriend in high school and he had cheated on me, lied about ever being with me and broken up with me for the girl he had cheated with. When I moved into my dorm in my college I soon learned that his new girlfriend was in the same building as me. When I found out he had cheated on me she was very nasty to me, calling me a whore and a slut even though he was the only guy I had ever been with and ever planned on being with. We would run into each other frequently and she would always make comments about how much of a whale that I was. At first it really hurt me. I had also had A LOT of roommate troubles in my entire first year I moved a total of 4 times due to people who were just cruel. My mother is an alcoholic along with a few other family members so I do not drink because I have seen it destroy people. I will not touch drugs and I moved into my college with blinders on pointing to my future career and nothing else. Most of my roommates would get really mad at me for not wanting their alcohol and drugs around and knowing that I had the power to stop them, they would all resort to name calling and sound making to make me feel powerless. There were nights where I laid in my bed listening to them mooing and oinking through the door while banging on it as if I couldn’t already hear them. My ex broke up with his girlfriend and we started talking again and I took refuge in him, he has always made me feel better about myself and I knew that I was not innocent when we broke up so I forgave him. We weren’t back together but all of my new friends from my college classes kept telling me how terrible of a person he is and that I should throw him out like yesterday’s garbage, pointing out only his mistakes. And they never let me forget how they felt about him. I could not even mention the one person who made me happy without being mocked.
    Watching your videos, I honestly have cried during quite a few of them because I realized that all the people who called me fat were wrong. That if all they had to make fun of me for was that I was fat, then they had nothing. I am smart. I had a 3.8 GPA in my first year while maintaining my first real part time job and all the drama that I was forced to deal with. I am strong. And it made me even more confident in my career choice of becoming a counselor. I want to help people like you have helped all of your subscribers. I am currently working, slowly but surely, towards getting healthier in my eating habits and my activity level. I am also taking a lot of your tips on dressing my body to really accentuate my good points and lift my self-confidence back up.
    I just wanted you to know how much you have helped me so thank you so much Sarah you are wonderful. <3

    ooh my god…i really needed to see ur vid right now. (youtube) my bf left today while i was at work (for a guy’s weekend trip) and i’ve been so scared he’ll go to a strip club…because in the past year that we’ve lived together i have gained at least 15-20 pounds…and although that might not seem like a lot to some people(or maybe it is) lol idk :-p …to me it’s been devastating. but to be honest i had a coke problem and since ive stopped (which was extremely hard), doing it ive gained the weight. i never really noticed it! …until my ex coworkers pointed it out (but no one realized how UN-healthy i was and what i was doing) and now ive been suuper self-conscious 🙁 and i work at a retail store in berwyn, il and the pressure is immense from our boss to look a certain way … i was actually watching this documentary on netflix called Miss Representation and that led me to google your video AND I LOOOVED THAT YOU CRIED! it made me cry …because i felt that u were sincere and i can honest to god say i’ve felt how you’ve felt…still do somedays…. thank you for being so brave and being a great role model! im your new fan 🙂 its funny how a random video can affect someones outlook in such a short time…i realize its not a long term thing, but for now…uve made me feel waaaay better abput myself 🙂 p.s. you should watch Miss Representation (netflix) u should be on there! lol

I have just “wasted” two precious nap time hours of my 2 year old and 2 month old delving in to your videos/tutorials and can’t wait to watch more! I am the largest I’ve ever been (always been a thicker girl) but after 2 babies have lost all confidence but mostly just because I don’t know how to dress this new body of mine. I’m trying to learn and loving your sites! I wish I could fly you here to me for a week so you could teach me your ways, and grab a drink and have a kid free girls night out of course! 😉 Definitely keep posting as I will now be checking in on the regular to see what new styles I can try to rock next! Now, on to dig in to more of your posts to try to find one about contouring as I am in desperate need of at least learning how to make my face up if nothing else!

    i was struck by how lovely you are and how refreshing it is to see a bigger girl stand up ans say this is who i am so deal with it. i too am a bigger girl and i am a yoga teacher. i have women in my class with beautiful bodies ( by to today’s version of what beautiful is ) who obviously dont have the confidence and positive outlook that you radiate!
    keep it up and keep being you.

My mom is out of a job and we are running out of money i worK. i HAD $ 500 but i had to use to pay bills. I dont want to get bullied about my wieght or the way i dress. I go to a caucasion school not to be meann. But im black so everyone wears pink and everything and that cost way to much. I have to have heart surgery on november 17 because i have a hole in my heart. Some nights i stay up all night all night crying because the way i get treated. I dont tell my mom because she already has enough on her hands with finding a job. I need help i need someone to talk 2 and this is theonly place i feel like i can talk please HELP ME.

    • Reply Anonymous November 25, 2014 at 9:35 pm

      Mikayla, I’d like to start by saying, as someone who has considered it in the past, suicide is never an answer. I know this probably doesn’t sound very reassuring, but it will get better, especially after high school once you’re in the real world. I can’t promise that the financial struggle will be better, but from personal experience, I can tell you that elementary and high school bullies are some of the cruelest there are, if you can make it through that, you can make it through anything. Children can be exceedingly cruel, and it sucks, but once you’re an adult, you will realize just how immature those people really were. Their acts of bullying get them nowhere. Stay strong and you can make it through anything.

      Seeing as your comment was from earlier in the month, I hope your surgery went well.

      I will watch this comment thread for the next few days in case you have any further specific advice you need or questions you’d like answers to.

      I know I’m not the person you were hoping for an answer from, but I wanted to lend a helping hand.

      Good Luck and God Bless.

    Hi Sarah!

    First of all thank you so much for all your videos they really have inspired me and helped with my confidence so much

    I’m 16 and I’m a director of an upcoming charity called the World Youth Organization, our goal is to get more teens globally involved with charity work, and next year in aid of cancer research and disability sport, myself and another 5 teens are walking form London to Paris, however because we aren’t very known yet, funding for this is very hard, we was wondering if you would maybe help us promote the walk a little? perhaps make a video about it or anything?

    Of course i understand that you probably get a lot of requests and messages like this so I understand if you are unable to help, however if you can help us in any way or have any advice let me know

    Hi Sarah!

    My name is Paige and I’m writing concerning a video you have on youtube titled ” Fat People are Unhealthy”

    I have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and , have been prematurely judged for my weight by people who do not know of my condition. So I’ve decided to start a vlog on youtube to educate people about PCOS and to begin to debunk the idea that just because you’re overweight does not mean you lead an unhealthy lifestyle. I wanted to asked you if I could use a short 5 second clip of you stating; “You guys do not get to decide who is healthy and who is not healthy. I can be healthy at a high weight – thin people are not necessarily healthy juts like overweight people are not necessarily unhealthy” for one of my vlogs? I’m using various other clips from other youtubers as well to back up my “theory” so to speak lol. I would sincerely appreciate it. Thank you so much and God Bless!

    I left a message on your youtube but with all the trash, spam and trolls you might be like me and rarely read those comments. I think you are fabulous and your sex-positive videos are perfect for my target audience. I am an ex model who due to cancer and many many abdominal surgeries before finally submitting to a full hysterectomy am now sadly stagnant at size 18. I physically can not ever have a flat stomach again the muscles are ripped to shreds and the nerves severely damaged. I still work out every day, eat raw foods and fresh juices (health conscious vegan) But at least once a day someone feels the need to remind me that I am fat …..like maybe I forgot or something. One of the side effects of ovarian cancer and the surgeries was it left me numb in places that made it almost impossible to enjoy sexual activity. I have a drop dead gorgeous print model husband who is 7 yrs my junior. Young successful and beautiful, he did not sign up to have his sex life end before he hit 30. So long story short, I took my medical background, my wifi and my credit card and spent 5 months figuring out wtf. Being big from once thin and it being something that happened quite rapidly was affecting my sex life in ways I did not realize. It was not a self esteem issue, I have never had a problem with my body image, it was physical. Things people said like “just lose the weight and you will be fine”….were so wrong I wanted to scream. I would love to talk with you and round table about some of the things that are not common knowledge and you can probably elaborate on many of the things I discuss in my blog. I am going to embed a few of your videos onto my site http://www.greatsexpectations.org and would love to talk more in depth with you. I am a several time published author, mostly medical and reference textbooks,but I will send you a friend request on goodreads and possibly we can brainstorm on an ebook for the big girls who still got it goin on 🙂 here is an article that I thought you would really benefit from just skip the top half and go to the bottom for the “rule of thumb” http://shoplikeasexpert.blogspot.com/2014/11/the-rule-of-thumb-for-wife-beating-hoax.html something you said in your video reminded me of it. xoxo Hillary

    Hi Sarah. I’m a 49 year old man from Toronto Canada.I came across your youtube page today. My god! You’re perfect! Not just your beautiful face and your jaw dropping curves but wonderful personality. At least how you seem in some of your videos. So articulate and funny and positive that it’s hard to imagine you have or had any insecurities about your looks. I’d be proud to walk into a room with a woman as good looking as you.
    You made me cry in your video ‘What men love and hate about dating fat girls’. I wanted to give you a hug. No, this isn’t a request. I’m a realist. You said you sometimes wondered why this or that guy would want to be with you. Throughout my life I’ve felt the same way about good looking fat girls. I’m a slimi(ish) average looking guy, I get called cute, and have been afraid to approach these big beautiful women because I would think “ Obviously she could do better than me. She’s gorgeous. Way above my league”. I’ve always been aware there’s plenty of people who have the same tastes in women as me and I can be just as intimidated and insecure and afraid of rejection as much as some of the big girls I’ve desired. Ruined opportunities because of my fear.
    If you ever need opinions from a guy who’s always liked big girls please email me. Keep up the good work. Jeff

Personally speaking, I also think that it’s really fucking unfair that people pressures you to feel that you’re not good or beautiful enough for the world. Fuck them, we all are beautiful and must be proud of ourselves because there’s no anyone as awesome like us. In my past also had a time when I felt insecure and believed that any guy would feel attracted to me because I have a very very very BIG ass, but you know, now I really LOVE my beautiful ass hahaha XP Again, thanks so much for be such a wonderful person ! Keep it up ! ^^
    P.D.: I’m going to use your beauty tips ! :3

    I know that nobody is reading this, and I’m not sure if I am writing this for someone else to read or for myself. I am going to site anyway. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism when I was eight years old and it has been a huge factor in my life since then. At eight I had gray skin with hair that looked like straw due to my thyroid shutting down. It took a long time to balance my hormones with the correct medicine, but within that time I gained a lot of weight and had no energy. From age eight to twelve I had friends, adults, and teachers comment on my eight and appearance because they did not understand that I was going through. I remember specifically having three of my friends parents sitting me down telling me I could not be on the best soccer team due to my weight, even though I was more than able to play on the team. (I am a huge soccer player, and I am proud to say that I am great at doing what I do on the field)This time in my life not only left me with stretch marks all over my body that have never gone away or even faded, but it has left me feeling horrible about myself to this day. I still weight more than I would like to, and even though I work out all the time my endocrinologist has told me that trying to loose weight after being on such a high dose of medication for as long as I have been is like trying to bring down a brick building with a screw driver. I was later diagnosed with panic anxiety disorder, and depression that I have had to fight against for a long time. I am proud of where I am mentally against my depression and anxiety, but I have never even thought to try to become confident in the way that I look. I actually have only found you on YouTube this past week, but you have already impacted me. I’m nowhere near where you are confidence wise, but seeing you has shown me a new perspective to looking at myself. So what I am trying to say is thank you for helping me look at myself in a bit more of a positive life after such a long time of not seeing it. Thank you. xoxox Sarah Ann

So I have recently come to the conclusion that I cannot afford to continue school and afford our apartment anymore so Myself, my one year old son and my SO will be moving into my parents house. it will be cramped but they are willing to help us. I know that you moved back into your parents place so I was just wondering how you’ve had to adjust. I feel so embarrassed that we can no longer afford to love on our own and I feel I am taking 1 step forward, 20 steps back. My mother and I have a great relationship but we always bicker. How do you manage your at home relationships? Is there anything you do to make sure you have your own personal space? I’m thinking about buying earplugs so I can focus on school work when my son goes to bed, but I feel that won’t be enough. Were you embarrassed to move back home? I feel like a failure 🙁

    Hi Rae! I recently found your channel on YouTube and let me just say you are such an amazing person! I love your body-positive messages and the confidence you exude, you are truly a fitting role model for young ladies everywhere.
    I have one quickie question, though you might’ve already covered it, if you did so I apologize.
    I have some friends who are bigger than I am, what should I do when they start to put themselves down and start calling themselves fat? I’ve always told them “You are gorgeous just the way you are (which is true!) so f*ck society’s expectations girl, believe in yourself!”. However I feel like I want to do more for them, make them actually believe me. Any advice on what to do?
    Thank you so much!

    Okay, you are divinely proportioned. I love cake bosses and you definitely have your own flavor. So my request, as wrong as it may be, is to see an upside-down cake look book with bounce music in the background. Though it can’t happen the way I’d want to see it, a more conservative plus-size yoga wear look book could help many of your viewers make sensible choices while in the most challenging and possibly unflattering positions that yoga demands.

    I have a niece who is taller and thicker than average and absolutely love her like my own daughter and I’m terrified of the damaging lies she gets subjected to by our society that say you must look and act a certain way for men to like you. So it’s with tremendous encouragement that I watched more than a couple of your videos combat the dark corners of our society. True beauty comes from the heart! Keep shining the light on the wicked in this world who are the true fat and ugly!

    Hi I’m not weird or anything but I am an admirerer of your youtube videos I find them insiteful even for a fat guy like me

    I just recently found your videos and I have struggled for years to embrace my plus size. I am what you called in one of your videos “new fat” and did not want to start shopping plus size. Watching your haul videos showed me that I can embrace myself at any size & that i’m not limited to the frumpy big shapeless clothes. It’s crazy to think that watching your videos helped me considering I think of myself as a grown woman, I’m 38 years old for crying out loud but I was able to connect with you. I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you for putting yourself out there. I can’t imagine it’s easy for other’s to criticize you when you put yourself out there like that and for that reason I just wanted to reach out and thank you.

    You were the first Youtuber I ever Subscribed too. I have always loved fashion and hair but make-up and I weren’t super close. I’m not sure why, i was looking up Plus-Size fashion and you were the first to pop-up. I instantly LOVED you. you and I have the same silly, dorky sense of Humor and frankness. I appreciate that. Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you for inspiring me and being yourself. it really helps me to continue to grow in confidence and love who I am. (been working on that for 29 years). Anyway, happy Monday (if you read this today) or at all? eeek. that would be crazy if you actually read all of your mail! Must be a ton of it!
    yeah, so now I’m rambling.
    Cheers
    Cara
