Jamie Otis has become a major advocate for self-care and self-love.

Over the years, she’s been working to embrace not only her body, but also the ups and downs of her life which she often shares with her fans.

Since her time on Married at First Sight, Jamie has worked to maintain her marriage, endured the struggles of trying to expand her family, experienced loss, and has held multiple jobs.

All these things have taken a toll on her in different ways, and have changed not only how she looks, but also how she feels about herself at times.

However, the mom of two has found a way to embrace all the changes she’s gone through. She’s even made it her mission to help others feel empowered to love themselves in every stage of their lives.

To help increase her confidence, Jamie recently updated her hairstyle. The small makeover made a big difference as Jamie used the change to boost awareness of the importance of self-care.

Jamie Otis debuts her blonde makeover

Jamie recently shared a video on Instagram showing off her new stylish look. The reality personality took her dark blonde locks to a lighter, frosted-colored blonde, giving herself a refreshing update.

In her post, she wrote, “Whatcha think of my new *blonder* hair?!”

Jamie took a moment to explain why this change is special to her. She went on to say, “It’s so weird bc you hear it all the time that moms ‘let themselves go’ (honestly, I really dislike that phrase) buttt, it’s definitely become true for me.”

She continued, “It wasn’t immediately – it took a few pregnancy losses, two kids & a pandemic to knock me down enough to begin ‘letting myself go.’”

Jamie goes on to express how she enjoys going without makeup and having her hair done, but also misses feeling and looking glammed up at times. So, switching up her hair and adding a pop of color was an exciting move for her.

To conclude her post, Jamie discussed how she continues to embrace what she calls her “mom bod” and not getting upset over the imperfections on her body. Jamie says she now feels free and enjoys taking care of herself without stressing over being perfect.

Jamie Otis weighs-in on the current season of MAFS

Like many former MAFS stars, Jamie has shared her thoughts on the current season. While many of the couples have raised concerns for viewers, Jamie focused on Mitch and Krysten who have become somewhat controversial already.

After an episode showing the two using tequila to help break the ice between them, Jamie chimed in to share how she felt it was a bad idea. She thinks adding drinks to an already intense situation can lead to what she called “long term damage” for their relationship.

Jamie is not the only one who has something to say about Mitch and Krysten. Many fans believe they are headed for disaster as Mitch has admitted he is not physically attracted to his new wife.

Now that the couples have moved in together, some are hoping Mitch will change his tune as he and Krysten get to know each other better.

Married at First Sight airs Wednesday nights at 8/7c on Lifetime.
