I’ve been wanting to share some exciting news with you for a while now, and my sincere apologies for only getting around to it now!
You should all be aware by now that I am on a mission to prove that short, fat, old birds can be bootiful too, and have embarked on a modelling hobby to try and show it can be done… I had applied for the Miss British Beauty Curve, which happened earlier this year, and a number of my fellow blogger babes were finalists, but I was not chosen at this time 🙁 . However, this did not stop me from continuing with my plan, so when I saw the amazing Leah was going to organise a plus size beauty pageant with a difference I was on it like a tramp on a kebab!
I present you with *drum roll*
A National Plus Size Pageant with a difference!
Model XL want to find the beauty inside the person, promotion of body confidence, The concept of this pageant is to show who you are!
This pageant embodies everything I believe in.
They have also decided on Mind as the charity of choice, so over the coming months I shall be using my title, Model XL Cambridgeshire, to do something good for this extremely worthwhile cause! To kick this off I have set up a Just Giving page for my local Mind, Mind In Cambs…. I am not sure as yet what I will do for my pièce de résistance, I have an idea, just need to decide on whether I am brave enough, can you guess what it might be????
As well as the overall title (obviously), there are some other awards up for grabs:
- Talent – Optional round. If you want to enter the talent round you will need to put a 2 minute talent video together prior to the final. The top 10 will be chosen to be shown on the night and a winner will be announced (not sure about this one….)
- Charity – The person who raises the most amount for the charity by the final will win this award (this is where you guys come in…. Sponsor Me!)
- Publicity – The most amount of public appearances and publicity. Points are given for followers on your official FB and Twitter and any newspaper cuttings and public appearances with your sash (I think I already have an appearance lined up for May!)
I have set up some Model XL Cambridgeshire specific social media, and I have listed these below:
I would really appreciate it if you could start the ball rolling and help me head towards that Publicity Award and follow, the only way to keep up with all the news and join me on my journey, share with friends and family, and generally spread the word!
