Food·Posted on Feb 24, 2017This Pregnant Mom Took Her Love Of Starbucks To The Next LevelAnd she owned it, TBH.by Michelle NoBuzzFeed StaffFacebookPinterestTwitterMailLink Everyone has heard the advice to ~just be yourself.~ Julief514 / Getty Images / Via gettyimages.com But Kate Engelmaier, a 22-year-old blogger, took the saying to the next level, when she decided to paint her belly with the Starbucks logo for her maternity photo shoot. Lily Engelmaier / Via lilyephotography.wixsite.com "I have always been told I was the definition of a 'basic sorority girl' and I never saw that as a bad thing," Engelmaier told BuzzFeed. abravemess.com "I am a typical girly girl who loves glitter, monograms, and Starbucks — [and] that's what makes me happy," she said. Engelmaier said she got the idea for the shoot after receiving a copy of the Belly Art Project book and paint kit from a college friend. spanx.com "When I received [the book], I thumbed through it and absolutely fell in love with the other women's painted bellies and everything this project stood for," Engelmaier said. "When thinking of what I wanted to paint on my belly, I decided I wanted something fun, lighthearted, and original that also described me." Though she's received her share of nasty comments regarding the idea, she has zero regrets about it. Lily Engelmaier / Via lilyephotography.wixsite.com Though she says she does wish she would have "painted it better." As a single mother living in the south, Engelmaier said she's used to unsolicited comments about her pregnancy, anyway. abravemess / Via instagram.com "Living in the south, I’ve gotten quite a few bad comments about [the fact that I'm a single mother]," Engelmaier said. Lily Engelmaier / Via lilyephotography.wixsite.com "A lot of older women look down on being single and pregnant and me doing it on my own. They tell me I should've considered my options." But she said she also gets messages of hope from other young, single moms via her blog, A Brave Mess — and that makes everything worth it. Lily Engelmaier / Via lilyephotography.wixsite.com "Those few people I am helping mean so much more than the people who don’t approve of what I’m doing," she said. Lily Engelmaier / Via lilyephotography.wixsite.com As for Baby Max, he's due on February 28, and Engelmaier said she hopes he'll live with the same carefree and bold attitude that she does. abravemess / Via instagram.com "And if he wants to be a little barista, then why not?" said Engelmaier. "His dad's a chef, and I wouldn't mind if he can make me a little coffee."
