    A Woman Changed

    I have ginger hair. And yes, that kind of changed my life enough to write this blog post, to re-do the whole look of my blog, Instagram account and my “brand” and think about even bigger life changes. It has brought out something in me that was missing. Let’s discuss shall we? I lost my dad a little over a month ago. He lost his fight with his brain tumor and I am still dealing with all the emotions that come with grief, but deep down I am happy for him because he fought long and hard and he deserved his peace. Now I just need to make peace with…

    My Advice for Dressing Curves

    As much as I love fashion and experimenting with different styles and fits I am by no means an expert on specifically dressing for your body shape, and I am also very much of the belief that you must dress how you want and how you feel comfortable. No body shape guide is ever a “one size fits all” because every body is unique. These guides may be helpful but they can also be harmful which is why I personally feel like we need to make our own rules and dress according to our mood, our preferences, or the occasion, and not according to a guide. So with that being…

    How to Accept that Body Positivity is for You

    I think the biggest misconception about body positivity is that it’s for a certain type of body. I have had so many women of all shapes and sizes message me saying that they feel like it’s not for them or that they don’t feel like they can promote it or be part of it because they’re not fat. And this tells me that something is going wrong and that we need to check ourselves and make sure that we’re including everyBODY. I understand that the movement is predominantly promoted by fat people but that’s all the more reason why we need you! We need to spread the love to all…

    Where I’ve been shopping for plus size clothing

    As plus size women, we have an unspoken fashion bond, when finding something that fits like a glove we want to tell each other or when we spot a store stocking some cute items we feel like we want to spread the word because that’s hard to come by sometimes. Or is that just me? Either way, I thought I would do a “where I’m shopping” post every 2 months or so to keep you updated on where I am finding what. Pep I have been doing majority of my shopping at Pep for the last two months. I am just finding that their clothing is so suitable to my…

    Dear Body Shamer

    I wish you would think, I wish you would think before you say something about somebody else’s appearance. I wish you would think about how deeply the words you say can hurt and impact someone else. I wish you would think about how you would feel hearing those words that are on the tip of your tongue. I wish you would imagine the anger and pain you would feel if your child looked into your eyes with tears in theirs because someone has body shamed them. We all look in the mirror and more often than not don’t like what we see. We find the smallest things to critique. We…
