Netflix have created an original film called Dumplin and it’s causing a stir. The film tells the story of Willowdean a plus-size teen who grows up in a small Texan town. Will is immersed into pageant culture, her mum is an ex-pageant queen, but Will doesn’t want to partake as it’s not her style. Her aunt teaches her to love herself and is a really positive role model. Just like any other teen Willowdean has normal problems with relationships, friends, death and love. The films core message is that Willowdean is more than just fat.
I do wonder, however wonderful Dumplin is, whether Netflix created this film as a PR stunt after they received negative backlash earlier this year over its series Insatiable. A series whereby a girl is taunted for being overweight and she takes revenge on her bullies by losing weight; a promotion of the diet culture. However, Dumplin although a possible PR stunt is a very tasteful feel good film about a normal girl that just so happens to be plus size.

So Christmas Jumper Day (14th of December) is fast approaching and for a lot of work places it’s a way of spreading Christmas cheer and raising money for their charities.
However, as a plus size woman it brings its own challenges. You see just the jumper you want, the right price, the right amount of cheese to sparkle ratio but they don’t have your size. Almost always the Christmas jumper memo is a last minute thing and there’s no time to order anything online so you end up panic buying! Continue reading “Happy Christmas Jumper Day!” →
So its that time of year guys, the Christmas parties are just around the corner and let me guess, you have no idea what to wear?
A lot of people dread fashion this time of year due to the fact that, everything, everywhere consists of glitter, sequins and sparkle. If you’re not confident enough to wear something that’s going to draw attention to yourself then this time of year probably won’t be your friend. But in all honesty it doesn’t have to be that way! There’s so many beautiful party dresses or outfits out there, and you really could let the bell go to the ball. Continue reading “Christmas really is your time to shine!

Hey guys welcome back! So this year has gone super quick and just like that it’s October! October means one thing… Halloween, muhahahaa (creepy Halloween laugh because I clearly think I’m funny).
I love dressing up for Halloween or for fancy dress parties, sometimes wearing clothes that aren’t ordinarily your style can totally give you a confidence boost and make you feel extra. Trying to find the perfect costume can be hard, but even harder when it comes to being plus size. Most Halloween or party shops only stock to sizes 16 or 18 if you’re lucky.

So the UK is experiencing a heatwave at the moment and in some places it’s reached over 30 degrees and I absolutely love it. But we all know what it’s like when it’s hot you just want to wear as little as possible to try and stay as cool as possible.
