Founder: Candice Kay-Gibb
“Smile for the camera!” A simple sentence that almost everyone has heard before. From a young age to our adult years, people are usually trying to look their best when their picture is being taken. Pictures say a thousand words; sometimes those words are lost among the white teeth and bright lights. Her words were lost, Candice was lost.
In order to find herself again, Candice, only in recent years, decided to come forward about her mental and physical abuse that she endured as a child.
Her teen years were a struggle. Candice battled with low self-esteem, social anxiety and would constantly worry about others and how they would perceive her. She battled serious eating disorders starting at a young age. She focused on her smile, her outgoing personality, and her charm to get her through each day.
Despite the decades of continued challenges that she faced over and over, Candice made it! She reached her goal of becoming a published and recognized fitness model in countless magazines, billboards, ads and TV. Her success attributes to her hard work and dedication despite the obstacles that life kept throwing at her. But once again, Candice was “smiling for the camera”.
Her mind and body were suffering because her focus was on appearance and perception, rather than inner health and wellness. Taking care of one’s body is definitely important, but there are right ways and wrong ways to go about it. Hating yourself daily, is not something Candice wanted, and she realized she was letting PTSD do the talking for her. It was time to silence that voice.
With counselling, hard work, true focus and the support of women. Candice was able to manage her PTSD, overcome her eating disorder and find a healthy way of living. Candice has found genuine happiness and now she inspires other women that they too can be happy and live an “Elegantly Outrageous” Life.
She founded this business with intention to teach other women how to do what she did – love herself more to live her best life while being empathic and kinder to those in the world around her.
