Fat Positive Sacramento: Galore Studios

Hey Loves! I’ve decided to add a new feature to my blog and we’re calling it: Fat Positive Sacramento! In these features I’ll introduce you Loves to businesses that are not only accepting of fat bodies but don’t shame them in anyway shape or form. I’ll discuss accessibility, how I was treated, what service I bought or was provided for so on. This is my way of letting plus bodies know that these businesses respect your body and that’s where you should be spending those fat dollars 😉

So in this first feature of Fat Postive Sacramento I wanted to introduce you all the amazing woman owned salon that is Galore Studios !!

Now first off I discovered Galore Studios in a casting call looking for promo models to shoot for media advertising – I LOVE that when I reached out and asked if they wanted to work with a plus model the immediate answer was a huge resounding YES! After shooting with this business I went back to try out a full set of gel nails and have kept coming back!

Accessibility: open parking lot, no stairs, open floor plan so you won’t feel cramped or stuffed in anywhere. The waxing services take place in their own room separate from the main display room. I’m a size 20 and the chairs all fit me comfortably.

I have uberly sensitive nail beds, acrylic tends to rip them up and leave behind only layers of nail so when Marie (the amazing owner) told me she only deals in full gel… Well, I was in heaven. And as we got to chatting we began to talk about her business and how she wants to be apart of the body positive community and truly offer services that most salons scoff at when a fat body is asking for them.

I’m talking they offer:

Waxing

Facials

Manis/Pedis

Full Gel Sets

Piercings

Spa Party

Lashes

Hair

Makeup application

Makeup selection shopping

Want to shop with friends – they’ve got you by offering a makeup service party!

Kids parties!

They literally do it all!! And what’s even better is that they want to work with All Walks Of Life! LGBTQ+ , Fat Bodies, Disabled Bodies… essentially if you’ve got a body, a decent attitude, and some money to book a service then yes, they want to work with you.

This beautiful salon is located at 3811 Florin Rd #4, Sacramento, CA 95823

Stay tuned, I’ll be filming a waxing service and facial with Galore soon!!

Until next time,

Kat XO

Treat yourself on a Budget: Barefoot Scientist

So as a mostly single income family home we live pretty strictly to our budget, which usually means things like pedicures get put pretty low on the list of priorities… BUT self care is important and I love taking care of my feet. I mean, let’s face it – it’s one of the body parts that tends to get abused the most. So in an effort to keep taking care of my feet I’ve found a budget friendly treatment that feels oh so nice and helped clear away the callus build up. My feet have never felt better and the whole process was painless! Let me introduce you Loves to Barefoot Scientist !

Barefoot Scientist is a new premium foot care product designed to give those tootsies the TLC they deserve. Crafted with advanced science and the best ingredients from around the world to nourish skin, freshen your step, and ease your pain.

Now I want to show you Loves my feet before product and after product so you get a good idea on how well this stuff works!

Before: I had a lot of callus build up all over my feet because it had actually been over a year since I had a pedicure or foot treatment. And even if with regular applications of lotion you can clearly see how dried out my skin is.

Now, The steps are easy:

Soak your feet for ten minutes.

Put on the paper booties with the gel and wear for the time recommended.

Take off booties, rinse me off and the peel works over the span of about a week, and you can go about your business! That easy – now, I loved that this process wasn’t intense and was made to work gradually with time, as well as being painless. I’ve don’t chemical treatments of my foot that left my skin feeling like it was on fire!

They also suggest helping the peel along by soaking your feet and rubbing the excess skin away over the course of six to seven day.

These are updates from day three:

Gross, I know, lol BUT look how well the treatment actually lifted the dead skin away. And again it was completely painless. The only weird thing was not putting any lotion or moisturizer on my skin during the week the treatment was working.

Day Six:

Most of the shedding has already occurred, still small pieces here and there that where still working with the product. This was also the day I started using the Barefoot Scientist High Dive lotion and Oh My Goodness – this stuff feels like butter on my feet and the level of moisturizing it brings to the skin on my feet feels amazing! My skin isn’t as dry, I’ve noticed no sensitivity, and the feel of my skin is so smooth it just feels amazing!

Day Ten:

My feet feel amazing!! They look amazing! And I’m such a fan of Barefoot Scientist that I will seriously be a customer for life!

Until next time my Loves,
