My Darling Chloe,
This year, you will prove that when things make you unhappy, you have the power to change them. At the start of the year, you’ll be feeling anxious, working in your retail job, in constant threat of redundancy, moving further and further away from your career goals.

This Valentines Day I wanted to spread the love and what better way to do this than by spreading the self-love message. In true RuPaul fashion, ‘if you can’t love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else’.
So for the next 7 days leading up to Valentines Day I’m sharing 7 acts of self-love (one a day) to encourage you to proactively do the same! I’ll be sharing these on my Instagram page @chloeepeach and using the hashtag #sevenactsofselflove so you can share with me how you partake in self-love this Valentines Day. Gone are the days of Valentines just being about couples and relationships! So get involved!

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.

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. Ladies of all shapes and sizes get the chub rub, its just some people get it more so than others. Continue reading “REVIEW: IVYVERDURE Anti-chafing stick”
