every single achievement I have made I can 100% owe to my failures 🤪🖤
PSA💄☎️ If your online/persona brand is anything body/beauty positive/progressive and you are actually a bitch in real life, fucking CHECK YOURSELF. What ever happened to being positive PERIOD? If you are only concerned with the exterior of your existence and you think kindness and humility come secondary, you are the absolute opposite of everything you are striving to stand for. I urge people to stop pretending being a good person isn’t a priority when it comes to making a change. It has nothing to do with your size or looks - it has to do with how you treat and speak of other people. No one gives a shit what size you are if you aren’t actually representing a positive PERSON, not just image. I honestly can’t sit here and watch this shallow fake shit go down in a facet of this society that desperately needs authenticity. I don’t look the way I do to make money and I certainly didn’t get to where I am only concerned with my exterior.
Sometimes if you don’t let go you could lose it all.
Like mother like daughter, missing my mama so much ❤️
Friendly reminder to check up on the people you love. Even if it has been a while...trust me it is never too late. 🙏🏼 @guccibeauty

Looking at lovely memories ❤️ sister & brother 🙏🏼🦋 #firstbestfriend #always
I discovered my style in a thrift store. Before it was trendy and before everyone was doing it. I used to thrift when people thought it was gross. But I loved it and that is what mattered the most to me! You really have to figure out what you like otherwise you will end up taking home the entire store. I understood the importance of fabric, where pieces were made, and my love of heavy beading and embroidery was also born. I love that second hand shopping is more popular because it is an incredible way to give back to your community and reduce waste. But it is sad that I thrifted this authentic Dior bodysuit when I was 14 for $20 and I have just seen it on Etsy going for over $2,000. Thrift because you love finding new pieces, not because trends are pushing you in that direction.
when you feel under pressure remember that diamonds don’t crack
Believe it or not these are my first piercings (on my ears 😜) done by a professional and not by yours truly during middle school math class or in my bedroom to rebel against my mom when I was 12 lol. Thanks so much @wklp at @sacredgold_london for having my today! I got two white gold stars and a diamond for the middle! They are all by @bvla - highly recommend going to the sacred gold shop if you want a piercing!
don’t let the deep end take you under I promise you won’t let yourself drown 🤞🏼🖤 stay strong (for whoever needs to hear this today) x
Being squishy as fuck for @squish.beauty ❤️❤️❤️ love the diversity in this campaign! #squishgyal
Friendly reminder it is okay to admit you are in a place in your life of growth. We aren’t always thriving! Don’t forget that!

Old picture of baby Sophia shooting for @guess 🦋❤️ she was so perfect and she didn’t even know it 🙏🏼
So excited that I have started seeing @drahmedaesthetics - basically a few months ago I wanted to change the shape/size of my lips and now fast forward i can confidently say that wasn’t for me. He is so incredible at listening and doing things that are right for whatever you want. I think it takes strength to say “hey I tried something and I didn’t like it” so that’s why I am so excited to start this journey with Dr. Ahmed leading the way! I just want to feel like myself again, and he is so skilled at what he does I have so much confidence in him! I feel it is important to document/show everything because when it comes to body positivity, you can do whatever you want to your body/face because it is YOURS, but it is also really important to be transparent so people who follow me aren’t faced with unrealistic expectations of their natural beauty. Because that is the ultimate goal, to be beautiful from the inside out above all else! #BlessedbyAhmed
Here is to the Sophia who was struggling so much emotionally she thought it was never going to end. Here is to the Sophia who didn’t actually know how to love herself whilst striving to show and encourage others to do it. Here is to loving everything and everyone around me. Here is to my journey - may it be full of unbearable lows, but also indescribable highs. We are all on our journey! I’m definitely still figuring mine out and I know it will be worth it. Stay strong because I promise it will be so worth it 🙏🏼❤️
Thanks so much @dr_richard__ for taking care of my teeth! Honestly love a good smile 🤪 you’re the best ❤️🦷

July 20th 1974, exactly 45 years ago today was when Turkey began its first wave of the brutal invasion and illegal occupation of my homeland, Cyprus. Numerous people were killed, went missing, thousands were left without their loved ones, homes, and were refugees of this tragedy - including my family. Many people remember this time in Cyprus so vividly. My father, like many others, remembers waking up that morning of the invasion and going to sleep a completely changed person. He lost everything. The cultural heritage of Cyprus was destroyed. I along with @nepomak want to see a #FreeUnitedCyprus where Cypriots of all backgrounds can live and thrive alongside each other. A home - a Cyprus, where we are free of occupation, and division. I am extremely proud to be a Greek Cypriot and I will never stop fighting for a unified Cyprus. #JusticeForCyprus It’s long overdue Δέν Ξεχνώ ❤️💪🏼🇨🇾
This necklace is from the BVLGARI Heritage Collection. It has emeralds and diamonds on it - it’s valued at £1.3 million! So excited for you to see my shoot with @girls.girls.girls.magazine featuring this and so many other @bulgariofficial iconic vintage one of a kind pieces ❤️

I don’t care if this isn’t relevant during the couture shows— it is our last day together and I’m on my way to London tonight!
He has been there for me through so much! He has gotten me through my most stressed and anxious times! Every breakup, birthday, death - every celebration and failure!! I am going to miss him so much when I leave!
I remember this day so well, if only she knew or had an idea what was around the corner for her. Never give up 🌸🙏🏼
I am not scared to be seen, I make no apologies, this is me. 🦋 Tuesday is my favorite day of the week - it is my last Tuesday in the USA before I start my adventures in London! This is a new chapter in my life and I’m so unbelievably nervous but so excited to leave the past behind me and focus on each day as it comes! I’m coming for you London!!! She is ready!!! 😎🇬🇧👅
