    The Habits of Women with Healthy Body Image

    Believe it or not, the answer to healthy body image is not found on the internet being endorsed by a celebrity. It is not a once off task that you complete and then forget about. And it doesn’t come from sucking on a weight loss sucker. There is no quick fix. It took me years of self destruction to realise that a healthy body image isn’t something that just happens and when it does happen, it doesn’t always stay for very long. It takes works and a lot more than a two week diet stint One of the things that has helped me with my body image is forming habits.…

    The New Rules of Plus Size Dressing

    Spoiler: There aren’t any! Us fuller figured woman are no longer restricted to what we should, could and would wear.

    Being Sexy in the Body you have

    I think most of us have this perception that our body is what makes us sexy, and the body that we need in order to be sexy is the porn star body or the magazine cover body but that couldn’t be further from the truth because guess what….

Sexy is a feeling that comes from inner confidence. I am speaking like I am a pro at being sexy and seductive and like I know it all, trust me when I…

    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…
