And that's a wrap!

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

Photo journal time for the big day at British Plus Size Fashion Weekend! This day started off with a panel discussion with fellow industry pioneers; Anna Scholz (Plus-Size Fashion Designer), Myself, Anna Shillinglaw of Milk Model Management, Rianne Ward of Evolve Magazine and BPSFW and Velvet D’Amour of VOLUP2 Magazine. I was so delighted to see how packed the room was and the thoughtful discussion that came of it. It was an honor to be included with women I look to as inspiration.

Then, right after I was wisked off to chat with the Today Show for NBC! LOL If I had known that, I would have definitely not worn my "drag" lashes! I had a quick change before the finale fashion show, so I went with the night time lashes *hangs head*. A good problem to have!

Here are some amazing pictures Mandy captured of the night!

HEALTH: (since it's an inevitable conversation, here are the facts) 310lbs as of Jan 2014, normal blood pressure + cholesterol + sugars + etc, no PCOS, no thyroid problems, I think my metabolism has completely left the building however, I absolutely believe the human body was meant to move and exercise is important! Get those endorphins baby! Afterall, happy people don't kill people, right? :D

RULES I LIVE BY
• being a working mommy wifey doesn't mean I have to dress the part *wink*
• black, white, red and grey for life
• no matter what size I am I will dress this body to the nines
• Size and age are just a numbers
