    It’s the last day of our #Breakfree From Body Hate week, where we’ve made a promise to ourselves to let go of all the body insecurities that have been holding us back. We want 2016 to be about embracing self-confidence and loving your body, no matter what shape, size, and colour it may come in. With that in mind, we’ve selected ten instagram accounts to inspire you to #breakfree from body hate this year….
