Gifts For Your Plus Size Valentine

I know it’s hard to believe, but it’s damn near February y’all! While here in the US we certainly have much bigger things to think about than Valentine’s Day, I feel like all of us could use a little…

Plus Size Crop Top: My Quiet Accomplishment

I’ve found my go-to outfit for the fall. I think it may be shockingly close to last year’s go-to look, and I’m ok with that. There’s something about having a little tummy showing in the Fall that does it…

Is Loving Yourself The Same As Feelin’ Yourself?

I’m feeling like I can take on the world right now. I cut 6 inches off my hair, colored it super blonde, decided I don’t give a damn what the world thinks about my VBO (visible belly outline), and…

Posting Update!

Hello love bugs! I just wanted to check in with you and let you know that our posting schedule is going to change just a little bit. As I’ve begun making more YouTube videos, I’ve decided I would like…

Define Flattering

I don’t want to hear it. I know that this dress looks like a sack. I realize that this dress is oversized. This may shock some, but I bought it that way and I really really like it. Not…

Plus Size Boudoir

This is the first time I’ve ever modeled for a professional photographer (excluding my wedding, but I was not modeling!), and god damn what a way to experience having my picture taken!!!! My plus size boudoir shoot was everything…

Fuck Being Healthy

“I don’t care what you look like as long as you’re healthy” We’ve all heard it. Many of us have nodded along in agreement, quietly disengaging from the well-intentioned person saying it. I wonder how many of you stay…

This Valentine’s Day, Sexy Is For Every Body

It’s that time of year, you beautiful babes!!! Happy Valentine’s Day!!! Love is in the air, chocolates are on the shelves, and we’re being inundated with ads all about looking hot for someone else. And what do those ads…

It’s Ok To Not Be Ok

I am not one of those wonderful people who can “fake it till you make it”. No, I have a different kind of approach. It generally involves lying in bed and crying, while refusing to wash my hair, acting…

Open Letter To Forever21 – Follow Up

In my last post, I wrote an open letter to Forever21 about their plus size section and what I felt was lacking in the shopping experience in their stores. Today, I received a response from their social media team…

An Open Letter To Forever 21, From A Fat Customer

Today, I visited one of your stores. I know, it was wishful thinking even hoping that there would be a plus size section inside those 3000+ square feet, as so often clothing sizes end at L in your stores.…

Gratitude

I hadn’t planned on sharing these photos this weekend, but that beautiful man making me smile was sick most of the week and I was testing out my ability to do that whole “in sickness and in health” thing.…

Holiday Guide: How To Heal From Fat Shaming Family

This post has been sitting in my drafts for a very long time, and I just haven’t found the appropriate time to post it. With the Holidays coming up, I think we all need a little guidance for how…

To The Families Of The Fat Kid

Shut up. Just fucking stop talking. Stop asking what they ate today. Stop talking about the new diet you heard of. Hold your breath (forever if need be) when a sudden comment of concern arises in your throat. Just,…

It’s Just Hair

I cut my hair. I took nearly 6 inches off. Could you tell? Most people can’t, and now that I see these photos of myself I am realizing that my hair doesn’t look much different at all! Even if…
