Friday Five A Day

I’ve decided to start posting five plus size pieces that I’m loving every Friday. This is because I know there are lots of plus size girls out there who feel nervous or afraid to wear the clothes they really love because they think those clothes are only for one specific body type.

How To Respond To The Health Police

One of the things I hear from followers all the time is that they don’t know how to respond when people question them about their health. So having encountered this problem a million times myself and really perfected my response to the point that I don’t even have to think about it anymore, I thought…

My Christmas 2017 Review

My Five Favourite Self Love Accounts 

Following bopo accounts on Instagram is crucial to developing self love and body positivity. Why? Well considering the fact that these days most of us spend more time on our phones than off them, it’s no wonder that the messages we receive through our social media have an immeasurable impact on how we think and…

The Bikini Body Bullshit 

It’s that time of year again, when our social media becomes saturated by Bikini Body workouts, meal plans and ‘thinspiration’. I’m sure you’ve already guessed that it’s not something that I enjoy.
