Naja Lingerie Wants Women to Feel Beautiful Inside and Out


We love lingerie. Well, strike that; we like the way it looks on Angels when they’re running around in big windswept corridors or posing on silky boudoir pillows—mostly because we hope that when we put on a pair of those panties we’ll suddenly look like Adrianna Lima. (Which we don’t.) So we’re left with oversexed lingerie that makes us feel a little too risqué, even on the days when we’re trying to impress our boyfriends. So for everyday beauty with form, function, fashion and just a touch of sex appeal, we love the designs at Naja. The brand, started only last year, is hoping to give women lingerie that is beautiful, supportive and will help to improve the lives of women around the world through their partnership with the Golondrinas Foundation and their own Underwear for Hope program.

Colombian-born entrepreneur Catalina Girald is no stranger to startups. Founded to showcase independent designers, her first website, Moxsie, was one of her earliest ventures into the fashion industry. Selling the site after it began to lose sight of its original direction, Girald decided to return to school, attending Stanford in pursuit of a law degree. While working comfortably as a lawyer at Skadden, she began to feel the entrepreneurial itch and finally left to start her own lingerie line. Seeing a lack of options for lingerie that made women feel comfortable and beautiful (without excessive ribbon, lace and bows), she started her business, gaining $50,000 in startup from Kickstarter in just three days. Her first collection completely sold out and her second season is currently in preorder.

The first collection, which has been recently restocked, was inspired by Japanese woodblock designs and tattoos which were designed exclusively for Naja by a San Francisco tattoo artist. The latest collection is inspired by 17th century churches, Mexican folklore and the works of Frida Kahlo. Spending summers in the Mexican countryside as a child, Girald uses these memories to create a whimsical new collection. Birds, monkeys, traditional hearts, angels and the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe were all hand-drawn by Girald as an original print. A bright contrast from the first collection of black, white and red, the Fall 2014 collection is colorful with bold goldenrod, vibrant vermillion and deep cerulean. Every bra has a fun contrasting print inside, like a little secret that women hold in their lingerie. In every panty, an inspirational quote is written in the gusset to start your day off emboldened and empowered.

But more than inspirational quotes and cute prints, Girald believes every woman should feel beautiful, and will be coming out with sizes that go up to DDD and 2XL for her new collection. Their belief in beauty and empowerment extends even to their factories with their Underwear for Hope charity and Golondrinas Foundation partnership, where a portion of their proceeds go to training single, displaced mothers in Colombia to sew, so they can make money for themselves and their family. Naja also gives each customer a lingerie wash bag with their purchase, and these wash bags are made by the newly employed and educated women. And that’s the kind of lingerie brand we can get behind—inner and outer beauty without­ the angel wings or wind fan.


25 Ways To Lean Into Your Sensuality & Feel In Love With Your Life Again

Power is beautiful and life changing. But only when we cultivate the right type. We can use power as a force of destruction—or for a force of dazzling self-creation.

There is a form of loving, strong power that wells up from deep inside of us. It offers us an indestructible sense of self, an innate and unshakeable sense of purpose.

Personal power is the force that will change your life.

We rarely talk about power and inner strength in society—which means that we often overlook the immense importance of these factors in our own, inner worlds.

When we lack personal power, we give our value, time and self-image to the hands of others. This is profoundly dis-empowering, and we end up living at odds with our true selves and never fully embracing the magnificence of our lives (however grand or humble outward appearances may be).

Do you want to step forth in the world with ease, grace and love?

I have a trick for you—and you’re going to adore it.

My trick for cultivating personal power

A few days ago, I found myself stressed out about work, panicked about life and plagued with self-doubt. Everything that goes against how I choose to live my life.

And that’s okay. It happens. The trick is regaining control in the most reaffirming, inspiring and uplifting way.

So what do I do to cultivate inner strength and stand tall and in a state of bliss once again?

I become a sensual being. I prioritize self-care. Not as an after thought. Not as an add on. This becomes a focus a way of living.

I call this sensual power.

At its core, it’s an understanding of what the world is really offering us: soulful beauty, self-respect and love. We are given these simply because we exist within the world. We just have to choose them. We have to seek them out.

Whatever strikes you as the most significant—whether it’s how you dress, immersing yourself in nature, nurturing your physical body, or creating a beautiful living space.

What gives your life meaning that you’re not currently spending time on? What makes you feel like the best version of yourself? What grounds you when you’re feeling stressed?

Do these, and watch your problems melt away.

To the outside, these focuses may look frivolous (and why they can be so easily overlooked). They are far from it. You are cultivating beautiful experiences and letting the world know what really matters to you. After a stressful day, sensual power rewires your mindset to a blissful space of creativity and love.

From here, you create a butterfly effect of changes in your life.

So dive into life’s pleasures, like a bath filled with rose petals after a long day or a hot spring in the mid-January air. You need this. Connect with life in this way, and you will always have a place of strength to return to. Connect and watch your life blossom.

What isn’t sensual power?

Sensuality isn’t over-indulging. Self-care isn’t selfishness. You cannot be sensual and overindulge or you destroy the joy and pleasure (have you ever eaten an entire box of chocolates? Did it make you feel good? No! But savoring just the right amount of chocolate transports you into a sensory world of bliss).

Self-care isn’t selfish—otherwise it would be a destructive force in your life. It’s not putting yourself before others at a cost—it’s honoring yourself, going above and beyond what you need to feel ‘okay’ as you make your way through life.

25 Ideas for cultivating sensual power in your own life

Dress in your most inspired pieces.
Consume everything with care.
Quality over quantity, always.

Create the art you’re aching to create.
Brew fresh, strong coffee.
Hug someone you love.
Immerse yourself in nature at every opportunity you get: go to the woods, the mountains, the sea. Breathe the air in.
Meditate.
Tidy your room. Decorate it with fresh, summer flowers.
Sleep in clean, luxuriant sheets.
Go outside.
Walk in the ocean under the summer sun, and feel your feet sink into sand.

Pretend you live in a glamorous French film, or an Italian novel.
Dance, dance every feeling out of you and through your body dance by yourself, at night, listening to music, or in the open with the soft breeze on your skin.
Fall in love.
Eat a plate of sweet berries.
Lounge in a silky robe at golden hour.
Eat some dark, smooth chocolate.
Read a poem.
Write one.
Light some candles.
Wear lace lingerie.
Look out your window and watch the sunset.
Say hi to the moon bathe in the light.
Let it all become you.

Pleasure is power. Self-care is power. Love is power. You get to choose how and where you direct your energy. You get to operate from a space of cultivated bliss from which to step forward into the world.

Don’t just stop and smell the roses. Go out of your way every day to immerse yourself in them.

Life is beautiful, and, as long as you have that, everything is going to be okay.

I have a trick for you—and you’re going to adore it.

My trick for cultivating personal power

A few days ago, I found myself stressed out about work, panicked about life and plagued with self-doubt. Everything that goes against how I choose to live my life.

And that’s okay. It happens. The trick is regaining control in the most reaffirming, inspiring and uplifting way.

So what do I do to cultivate inner strength and stand tall and in a state of bliss once again?

I become a sensual being. I prioritize self-care. Not as an after thought. Not as an add on. This becomes a focus a way of living.

I call this sensual power.

At its core, it’s an understanding of what the world is really offering us: soulful beauty, self-respect and love. We are given these simply because we exist within the world. We just have to choose them. We have to seek them out.

Whatever strikes you as the most significant—whether it’s how you dress, immersing yourself in nature, nurturing your physical body, or creating a beautiful living space.

What gives your life meaning that you’re not currently spending time on? What makes you feel like the best version of yourself? What grounds you when you’re feeling stressed?

Do these, and watch your problems melt away.

To the outside, these focuses may look frivolous (and why they can be so easily overlooked). They are far from it. You are cultivating beautiful experiences and letting the world know what really matters to you. After a stressful day, sensual power rewires your mindset to a blissful space of creativity and love.

From here, you create a butterfly effect of changes in your life.

So dive into life’s pleasures, like a bath filled with rose petals after a long day or a hot spring in the mid-January air. You need this. Connect with life in this way, and you will always have a place of strength to return to. Connect and watch your life blossom.

What isn’t sensual power?

Sensuality isn’t over-indulging. Self-care isn’t selfishness. You cannot be sensual and overindulge or you destroy the joy and pleasure (have you ever eaten an entire box of chocolates? Did it make you feel good? No! But savoring just the right amount of chocolate transports you into a sensory world of bliss).

Self-care isn’t selfish—otherwise it would be a destructive force in your life. It’s not putting yourself before others at a cost—it’s honoring yourself, going above and beyond what you need to feel ‘okay’ as you make your way through life.

25 Ideas for cultivating sensual power in your own life

Dress in your most inspired pieces.
Consume everything with care.
Quality over quantity, always.

Create the art you’re aching to create.
Brew fresh, strong coffee.
Hug someone you love.
Immerse yourself in nature at every opportunity you get: go to the woods, the mountains, the sea. Breathe the air in.
Meditate.
Tidy your room. Decorate it with fresh, summer flowers.
Sleep in clean, luxuriant sheets.
Go outside.
Walk in the ocean under the summer sun, and feel your feet sink into sand.

Pretend you live in a glamorous French film, or an Italian novel.
Dance, dance every feeling out of you and through your body dance by yourself, at night, listening to music, or in the open with the soft breeze on your skin.
Fall in love.
Eat a plate of sweet berries.
Lounge in a silky robe at golden hour.
Eat some dark, smooth chocolate.
Read a poem.
Write one.
Light some candles.
Wear lace lingerie.
Look out your window and watch the sunset.
Say hi to the moon bathe in the light.
Let it all become you.

Pleasure is power. Self-care is power. Love is power. You get to choose how and where you direct your energy. You get to operate from a space of cultivated bliss from which to step forward into the world.

Don’t just stop and smell the roses. Go out of your way every day to immerse yourself in them.

Life is beautiful, and, as long as you have that, everything is going to be okay.

25 Ways To Lean Into Your Sensuality & Feel In Love With Your Life Again

Power is beautiful and life changing. But only when we cultivate the right type. We can use power as a force of destruction—or for a force of dazzling self-creation.

There is a form of loving, strong power that wells up from deep inside of us. It offers us an indestructible sense of self, an innate and unshakeable sense of purpose.

Personal power is the force that will change your life.

We rarely talk about power and inner strength in society—which means that we often overlook the immense importance of these factors in our own, inner worlds.
