So here it is, the 1st Edition of the Plus Size & Proud Blog. I am most definitely a BBW and I want to start to embrace this, and I want to share my journey with whoever will listen to my babblings!
I hope one day to be smaller than I am, but heading very close to my 40th year (only 9 months to go), I am realistic in that I will never be a skinny minnie, and let’s be honest, do I really want to be a skinny minnie????
I used to have a long list of reasons why it was good to have a little more meat on my bones…. I’d outlive most in a famine, it keeps the wrinkles at bay with your very own natural botox to name a couple, but, I had to ask myself at times, who was I trying to convince?
The media really isn’t kind to us “Fat Birds”, however, I read via one of my inspirations, Tess Munster (check out her blog here http://theplussizelife.blogspot.co.uk/ ), that yesterday, for the first time, Plus-Size Models were in New York Fashion Week! Could this be the beginning of a new era? First NYFW, then the World! FATfashion World Domination…. Let’s make it happen!
So, this is where it will all begin, and I can’t be sure where the journey will take us, what I will have to talk about, whether it will be worth reading etc etc. but we shall see.
What I will also try and do is post a Outfit of the Day along with how I have created the look, but do feel free to ask questions.
I do hope you like what you read, and if you do, please let me know, comment and share with your friends.
