Gabbi Rose Hosts: A personal blog

Check out my paintings at artbygabbirose.tumblr.com.


I reblog a lot of things; if you want to see posts about my life and what I talk about follow the linked pages accordingly.


A little about the author: I am 21, female, cisgender, INF/SP, bisexual, polyamorous, and go by Gabbi - but you can call me Bodacious Jones, or Gabbz, if you like. I write about my recovery from bulimia, my dance (I am a sponsored hoop dancer at Hoop Conscious, a swing dancer, as well as a solo contemporary dancer), my art (side blog artbygabbirose.tumblr.com), being gluten intolerant, and living with reactive hypoglycemia. All of these things have a page for related posts.


Hobbies including I.T. support, playing the ukulele, doodling, and singing extremely inappropriate songs in the shower.


Feel free to ask me whatever you like - anonymously or not.

Stop being so pretty! You're like a perfect human: you're an artist who can make wonderful paintings and sketches and then you're pretty! How?!

This message made me so happy… that I had to try and find the perfect gif. :) thank you! 

Certainly gave me a confidence boost.

So my boyfriend says I look like this body builder… I’m not sure what to think. She’s very pretty and I did feel great - until he’s like “and she has a tummy” and I’m like “other girls can be pretty with tummies but not me” and I know that’s a double standard… 

It makes me want to work on my body though.

I want to look like a dancer and become one… but I’m not small and slender. I’m not long and graceful. I guess I never thought of it until now but I’m kinda stocky. 

Makes me feel bad. 

Which doesn’t make sense. This girl is gorgeous and strong. She looks amazing and capable. 

Eating disorder brain makes no sense.

people only pay attention to you if you’re good and active.

Like, if you need to take time away from your work, or you have a day job, or your work isn’t your main thing… most of the time, people are kinda like, “mehhhhh. This was updated five years ago. I mean, it’s great, but it doesn’t look…

My latest contemporary dance practice. I did it while watching the video for Sia’s Chandelier. I’m not nearly as good, but… it helped to “follow along”, so to speak. I haven’t ever practiced it this way before. Feedback appreciated. 

I do have a lot of tiny cysts throughout my breast tissue. Pretty sure it’s called “fibrocystic breasts”. Totally benign, and should go away on its own in a few months. In other words… the pain should dissipate on its own with time.

I’m very happy.

I have no idea what the source is or artist, but if anyone knows, correct me. This is beautiful.

From what I can find, the proper artist is Oxana Basil. It looks like this is from her Etsy and sold this painting! She seems to sell lots of beautiful watercolor art.

Thank you, sweetoctopodes! I was on my phone and couldn’t do the search by image thing. 

Hear that guys? This is the work of Oxana Basil. Go check her out!
