Just trying to spread a little light and positivity in this world 🌎✨I'm the happiest when I'm painting someone's face or on a pole. πŸŒˆπŸ¦„ #latina

Tomorrow's SC Sunday theme look was inspired by our collaboration with Museum of Ice Cream ☺️ I struggled with the lashes on this one but oh well πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ #sephoraeducation #scsundays #sephoracollection #scthemelook #sephorathemeday #sephora #sephoracollectionambassador

So it finally happened 😈❀️ Yesterday I finally got to bring my vision to life on who I wanted my drag persona to be. Meet Her-Mena, my dark and slightly more attractive alter ego! I had a blast making my drag debut at the @fakemustachedrag Halloween show, surrounded by incredible local talent. I wanna thank everyone who came to support me last night (my pole family and my other half @kathryns_recovery), I'm sorry I didn't get a picture with you all. A special you to my (far too young) pole mother, @demelyk not only for cheering me on but for teaching me a good chunk of the floorwork that I put into my routine, you're truly the best 😘 I won't be posting full videos of my routine yet because I'll be performing it again at the end of the month, but stay tuned for that! My heart is full and I can't wait to see where this crazy journey takes me πŸ’žπŸ’ž #Her-Mena #dragqueen #bioqueen #yycdragqueens #dragperformer #fakemustachedrag #fakemustache #yycdragshow #yycdrag

Throwing it back with this candid from #PSOCanada2018 as I patiently wait for my video of my performance to arrive πŸ˜πŸ™ˆ I won't be performing on the pole again until next year but I have 2 drag shows I'll be doing in October and I'm so stoked 😍 #poledancer #yycpoleartist #yycpoledancer #performer #dragqueen #bioqueen #dragperformer

Today I got to put on my grownup clothes and help out with demo interviews at our career fair! Thank you to everyone who came out and thanks to these lovely ladies for bringing me along and showing me the ropes πŸ’ž I learned a lot and had lots of fun 😊 #sephoracanada #careerfair #projectprep #ilovemyjob

In true Jimena fashion, my #worldmentalhealthday post is being put out with 20 something minutes before the day ends, but we should be having these conversations regularly anyways.. I wanted to talk a little bit about where I'm at because I feel like an update is long overdue. As a lot of you may already know, I was discharged from the Calgary eating disorder program this time last year. However, from that point until 3 or so months ago I'd still been seeing other professionals and accessing mental health services. Now, I only have one person on my team, which is my psychiatrist, and I'm sure she's stuck with me for a very long time because ya girl will most likely be on antidepressants for the rest of her life πŸ˜… which is totally cool, I've been on them for years and they work wonders. Why am I telling you all this? Well, wintertime has historically not been a good time for me. I don't know if it's the weather or just a (happy πŸ™„) coincidence but things generally don't go well for me this time of year. And this is the first year since 2013/2014 that I don't have a whole team or at the very least 2 or 3 people in charge of my well being. While this is terrifying, I know this year will be different because I've been able to access so many resources and receive proper help, something that wouldn't have happened had I not come forward and received proper diagnoses. I know how hard it is to admit when you're struggling, and how uncomfortable it is to open up to a complete stranger about your mental health, or lack thereof. But even if things aren't "that bad" and you're not at your lowest point, if you have something that's affecting your mental wellbeing, speaking up isn't just brace, it's crucial. We all deserve to live a full, happy life. And if anyone needs a hand in taking that first step, making that phone call to set up an appointment, anything long those lines, take me at my word when I say that I'll gladly help πŸ’žπŸ’ž that is all ❀️ #endthestigma #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness

Take my word for it when i say that I'm actually in this picture πŸ˜‚ @beauty.glitz.glam work just won't be the same without you, but this isn't goodbye πŸ’žπŸ˜˜ #sephoracrew #farewellparty #mygirls

When you're fumbling your way through a new combo and the squad decides to join you πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I don't know what's funnier, the little mini steps right before the invert or my ridiculous commentary πŸ™ˆπŸ€·β€β™€οΈ (and yes, this is my October 3rd post and it's better than everyone else's 😎) #happymeangirlsday #itsoctoberthird #onwednesdayswewearpink #aradiafitnesscalgary #aradiafitness #polefitness #poledancing #floorcombo

I still can't believe #PSO2018 is over 😭. I had such an amazing time meeting and reconnecting with some incredible artists πŸ’ž For those of you who don't know, I competed in the entertainment 3 category (there are 5 levels) and while my main intention was to entertain I'd be lying if I said that my placement didn't matter to me. I came 4th out of 8 and for me, someone who has zero dance background outside of pole, that's pretty damn good. I'm super proud of myself but I'm even more proud of my @aradiafitnesscalgary group as a whole because we all killed it πŸ™ˆπŸ˜β˜ΊοΈ My Aradia Calgary sisters are a force to be reckoned with and I can't wait to compete with them again next year πŸ’žπŸ’ž Now I'll be getting my ass back to the studio for some non-competition training and I'm stoked ☺️(also I'm a little mad that I took no photos but oh well πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ) #psocanadawest2018 #polesport #poleart #competitivepoledancer #yycpoledancers #performer #entertainment

Can we just take a moment to appreciate the masterpiece of a costume that @clareburton7 created for me for PSO from scratch? I loved it so much that I may or may not have worn it the entire day πŸ˜‚ The original inspiration for the whole look was @littlemix performing my competition song (Sissy That Walk) years back at G A Y nightclub πŸ˜πŸ™ˆI felt fierce hennyyyyy πŸ’πŸΌ #PSO2018 #psocanadawest2018 #poledancer #poleperformance #dragxpole #bioqueen #dragqueen #dragroutine #sissythatwalk #rupaul #rpdr

Got to watch the sunset from the airplane and it made me so incredibly happy. What a beautiful world we live in and what a lucky girl I am to have the opportunities that I've been given πŸ’žβ˜€οΈ Someone asked me today to think of the person I was 3 years ago and to think of how much I've grown since then. 3 years ago I wasn't sure I wanted to be alive. 3 years doesn't seem like a long time but when two of those years are spent fighting to survive and ultimately succeeding it changes you for the better. I'm feeling really contemplative and grateful tonight. Grateful not only to be alive but to be truly living. πŸ’žπŸŒΉβœ¨ #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #letsendthestigma #mentalillness #gratitude #grateful #airplaneshot
