Me!

Hi!

When I first started this blog I had no idea whether I wanted to be a plussize blogger, a beauty blogger, lifestyle blogger..etc. I kept deleting posts, wondering if I was posting enough of one thing and not another. I love beauty and have so many lip glosses I could open a shop with them, but I didn't know if that could be the only thing I could write about. I feel like sometimes I could be in the lifestyle category as I do enjoy writing about other interests in my life. Now when I discovered that there is a Plus Size Blogger category I thought yes that's where I fit in, finally somewhere where I hopefully wouldn't feel like an outsider! I never thought that I would be able to share my passion for fashion being a size 20+ without it being frowned upon, unfortunately there are people out there that think if you are bigger than a 12 you are fat and almost a freak.

Since discovering the psblogger chat on twitter my sunday nights are no longer full of doom and gloom. I know this seems a bit drastic to say that, but last year every sunday I would feel so low come the evening, my only solice was reading my favourite magazines and pondering what I was going to wear to work for the week. It's so nice to be able to chat to lovely ladies who also happen to be a plus size and understand my perils of finding nice clothes to fit. I don't have any friends that are bigger than a size 12 which makes it difficult for me to find someone to talk to about my love of clothes. This has definitely left me feeling isolated and feeling alone sometimes and I'm very thankful that I have discovered the wonderful plus community on the internet, it gives me some hope that I don't have to be a size 10/12 just to feel normal.

I think that even with my dieting I will always be a PS blogger, my aim is not to be a size ten but a few sizes smaller whilst keeping my curves! I think, if it wasn't for my health, I wouldn't be dieting at this moment as for the first time in years I finally feel comfortable with myself!

Much Love

  1. I used to have just the same concerns as you - and then I just decided to be myself! Now my blog is a bit of everything. If people like your 'voice' enough they will read whatever you write about. I'm so glad psbloggerschat has you feeling happy! x x
