My Darling Chloe,
This year, you will prove that when things make you unhappy, you have the power to change them.

Happy New Year! Let’s hope 2019 is kind to you!
The excitement of a new year for a lot of people means the chance of a fresh start, the end of an era and the start of a new one. We often get caught up in all the madness of a New Year that we believe we can simply change the person we are just by writing down a simple to do list of resolutions, but in reality New Year is just another day, and just like any other day you have to work for the things you want in life.

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!”
