korilaurel 9 Days OUT. Today's focus is about timing. Last year I thought I was ready to run for Miss Utah USA, and man was I wrong. I went through one of the most difficult years of my life last year. I wasn't ready to be a leader to those around me, I wasn't ready to be a role model, I wasn't ready to be a voice of an amazing state. But now I am. I am ready to show this state what I have to offer. It's all part of God's plan. The timing is here and I am ready and prepared to seize the moment. #God #pageantprep #motivation #inspiration #missutusa 2d

korilaurel In just 10 days I will hit the Miss Utah USA stage. In these short days leading up to the pageant I will be taking all the time in the world to dive into myself and realize that no matter the outcome I will be enough. Enough for myself, for others, for life. I can't wait to share with you this journey. Please send me your prayers and support. I will take all the positive air waves that you send. I love each and everyone of you. Thank you for everything. #pageant #pageantprep #family #support #motivation #inspiration #InstaSize #missutusa #missutahusa 3d

korilaurel My face when I realize I still have a million things to do today but would rather be napping. At least I have my whitening trays and fake eyelashes on. #selfiesunday 3d

korilaurel I got to splurge at my favorite stores today. Went a bit crazy with the holiday gifts for......myself. What can I say, I love fancy paper and wax stamps. And if you ever been to Trolley Square then you know they have the fanciest of fancy paper stores, Tabula Rasa, there. I can't wait to share with you my other purchases. #trolleysquare @trolley_square #trolleyholiday #saltlakecity #gold #paris 1w

korilaurel It's my "holy sh*t I fit into my pageant gown" celebratory glass of wine. After months of ass kicking I finally fit into my gown comfortably. I even get to add push-up to my corset.

korilaurel My official #MissUTUSA headshot. I want to say thank you to Ami for helping me with my makeup on the last minute, @courtnievon @thedavetucker for having such an amazing positive atmosphere, and my sponsors for helping me get here. Without all of you I wouldn't have been able to muster the courage to finally put myself out there for the pageant. @liftbigeatbig @2poodperformance @trilogymed @qclothingslc @debbiedurkee @qsciences @blackmarketlabs @togospa @locknlonghair @mhpstrong @shekstudio118 @youtrition @slpoweryoga @title_boxing_sugarhouse @brickwallcrossfit @katirquinn @jesstavs @lori_robinsonn #pageantprep #pinoy #filipino #pageant 1w

korilaurel Woke up like I came off a boat. Got my first spray tan from @dawse1 last night. Who knew a little color could make me feel so good! I used to worship the sun but the past year I've been lathering the SPF on because my mom had another skin cancer spot found. Even though I'm dark I refuse to take the risk of getting cancer. I'm sold on spray tans and so my #leovincent. #pageantprep #missutusa #sunkissedbyashley #spraytan #tan #pinoy #crossfitgirl #crossfit #fitness #weightloss #boxing #cardio 2w

korilaurel From last December to now. Lots of tears and self loathing between these photos. Days where I hated myself, days where I was so conscious about every little thing I would eat, days where I would just look at the mirror and just ball. Long sessions at therapist learning how to accept and love myself for who I am and not what I look like. Hours upon hours at the gym. Lifting heavier, running faster, dedicating my time to my self. Learning how to look in the mirror and love who I am. Being a woman is hard. Living in a society where we're held to these absolutely ridiculous standards just kills me. I love my body, but its taken me a long time to say that. And yes there are days that I struggle. Buts that what this beautiful journey of life is about, the struggle. Today, I feel beautiful. Today, I am at peace with the war of my body. #weightloss #pageantprep #fitness #crossfit #innerpeace #motivation 2w

korilaurel You guys! The #missutusa pageant is almost here. Look at this fabulous photo that @thedavetucker took of me. Isn't it amazing? He's just the best.

korilaurel The moment you realize that your love life is almost as tragic as Taylor Swifts. Welcome to your mid twenties! Where you can relate to more than one of the tracks on her new album. Married to the dream and loving whatever man wants to buy me dinner that night. #tswift #1989 #twenties #tinder #InstaSize 2w

korilaurel I am from a PROUD military family. My mother served in the Air Force for 10+ years, father in the Air Force, Grandpa is a retired Master Chief in the Navy, and my other Grandpa is retired Air Force. My parents raised me on very strict military ideals. We traveled around the world. I saw my parents TTY on numerous occasions with or without us. The military shaped me into who I am today. I’m not sure if I would be the same person without it. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t pray for those serving our great country. Thanking you one day a year is not enough for your countless dedicated hours to our great nation. Lastly, to your families. I salute you. Thank you for your sacrifices. Thank you for lending your loved ones to this country. Happy Veterans Day. #veteransday #militaryfamily 2w
