Be confident in your personal style no matter the nay sayers. I embrace every inch of my body, cellulite and all. There is no perfect body in this world so why beat myself up about how imperfect I think my body is. I believe whenever possible, try on everything in the store, you never know what might fit. Screw the number on the tag.
Oh my goodness, blogging has changed my life so much. All I can do is think about the next post I am going to share with readers. For me, it is my passion to impact the lives of young curvy girls by showing them how to be confident within their skin and to embrace their curves in the most stylish way possible. I take my camera everywhere I go just to snap stylish girls on the street and whenever I ask to take their picture, they get so excited and it always seems to lead into a body acceptance conversation. Blogging has also impacted my wallet. I am always buying things and trying out new things which leaves my pockets a linty. Blogging has also impacted my life by opening up the lines of communication with plus designers and brands. For instance, I got to go to the Lane Bryant Blogger conference and get a an exclusive look at how they create clothes for us and I even had the opportunity to talk with the president and marketing execs to share the frustrations that curvy girls have when it comes to fashion. An opportunity like that can change things in a major way, and I was afforded this opportunity because I am a blogger. Most importantly, reading the emails I get about girls saying they tried something because of me or they feel better about themselves because of something gives me the drive to continue blogging when I get discouraged.
You are beautiful in every single way. Don’t allow other people to take your confidence away from you whether that be the confidence you have in your body or your skill or talent. If there is anyone in you life who treats you less than the queen that you are, then get rid of them. Every morning you should look in the mirror and say to yourself that you are gorgeous and then you should dress your body accordingly.
Great words to live by!
Thank you so much for sharing, Alissa!
