All About That Bass- Meghan Trainor, Lyrics That Helps Body Positivity

Can I tell you all that I love Facebook. Yesterday I had a mild freak out because a dress I ordered made me feel horrible. Honestly, I think it was the waist line. I have a long torso and it cut me the wrong way. Well at least in my head. Josh didn’t help when he said he thought I looked like I do most days in it, so it was fine.

Enter negative self talk. Words like fat, cow, and horrible. Jena is not immune to the size 2’s of the world, even though mentally she loves how she is feeling and happy to keep up her good habits and not say, only eat cabage soup until her shower this week or her engagement photos in two weeks. But then I woke up to this on Facebook.

This is what the song says:

Because you know I’m all about that bass, 
‘Bout that bass ’bout that bass, no treble
I’m all ’bout that bass, ’bout that bass, no treble
I’m all ’bout that bass, ’bout that bass, no treble
I’m all ’bout that bass, ’bout that bass

Yeah it’s pretty clear, I ain’t no size 2
But I can shake it, shake it like I’m supposed to do
‘Cause I got that boom boom that all the boys chase
All the right junk in all the right places
I see the magazines working that Photoshop
We know that shit ain’t real
Come on now, make it stop
If you got beauty beauty just raise ‘em up
‘Cause every inch of you is perfect
From the bottom to the top
Yeah, my momma she told me don’t worry about your size
She says, boys they like a little more booty to hold at night
You know I won’t be no stick thin you silly Barbie doll,
So, if that’s what’s you’re into 
Then go ahead and move along!

Because you know I’m all about that bass, 
‘Bout that bass ’bout that bass, no treble
I’m all ’bout that bass, ’bout that bass, no treble
I’m all ’bout that bass, ’bout that bass, no treble
I’m all ’bout that bass, ’bout that bass

I’m bringing booty back
Go ahead and tell them skinny bitches Hey!
No, I’m just playing I know you think you’re fat,
But I’m here to tell you that,
Every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top!
Yeah, my momma she told me don’t worry about your size
She says, boys they like a little more booty to hold at night
You know I won’t be no stick thin you silly Barbie doll,
So, if that’s what’s you’re into 
Then go ahead and move along!

Because you know I’m all about that bass, 
‘Bout that bass ’bout that bass, no treble
I’m all ’bout that bass, ’bout that bass, no treble
I’m all ’bout that bass, ’bout that bass, no treble
I’m all ’bout that bass, ’bout that bass

My favorite has to be her echo to Justin Timberlake’s Sexy Back with “I’m bringing booty back.” So long story short: Go  buy her song and play it when you need a verbal reminding that you don’t need to be a size 2. Just keep being healthy and love yourself. I also think I look much better with a positive frame of mind.

Rocking Out with Jabra Rox Wireless Headset

I received this product courtesy of Jabra; all opinions are 100% my own.

I’m a pretty lucky gal. Seven years of blogging has taught me to be selective about endorsing brands. While 80% of Underwear in Our Kitchen is filled antics and antidotes, you’ll still find a few scattered posts which tout some of of favorite products. As stated in our PR policy, these are only ones which we would purchase ourselves. So far I bought on Amazon.com (addiction alert) with my own cold-hard cash a Jabra Solemate and, more recently for Mother’s Day, a Jabra Tour.

So when I say the Jabra Rox rocks, I mean it. If it didn’t, I’d have told our brand partner, “This is not my favorite product, and I don’t think we can promote on the site.” I doubt that would ever happen, however, since every single Jabra product we’ve tested out is awesome…hence the reason they my favorite go-to gift brand. The Rox is a wireless headset designed for listening to music during grocery tips, cleaning the house (ewww) or even light exercise. I say light since they have other products such as  the Jabra Sport specifically designed for heavier exercise action.

Me Walking w/ Jabra Rox

Jabra Rox comes with everything you need to ensure a perfect fit. I watched a short YouTube tutorial to choose the correct earbuds and EarWings ensuring the Rox stays put. I was then off to the gym for a weight training workout; the Rox stayed in place perfectly as I blasted out Maroon 5 after downloading the exclusive Jabra Sound app which plays High-definition Dolby Digital Plus sound. See for yourself:
