The start of it all!

The more  I search for something basic and profound about beauty, health or even lifestyle of the plus size woman I find that there is nothing out there that is even remotely realistic. I look through stacks of magazines, books, articles and even through channels on the tube only to be continually disappointed by their lack of – well – truth. Granted, I’m full of as much bullshit as the next woman figuring out who she is and what the heck I’m gonna do (or what excuses) I can find in regards to my body – BUT this isn’t going to be the place for it. Not at all.

If you don’t like it – change it. If you don’t want to change it figure out how to make it work!!!

This is the first blog that will touch on a number of different weekly posted series. You’ll find that my goal of this is basic and simple – I don’t even know if anyone reads blogs anymore these days but I’m willing to put it all out there for whoever is willing to take the time to read it and  be involved, if they wish. There is a lack of resources out there for women who have bodies with bumps and curves and even some jiggle so my goal is to provide real resources for women of all sizes, who just want to cut through all the bullshit and get to the good stuff.

Random fat fact -The average size of a woman over the age of 18 is a 14. Too bad the manikins are usually a size 4-6 or in plus departments they are a 12-14 where the most popular size is a 22… no wonder things don’t look as good on me as they do on the manikins.

Got a suggestion? Just tell me. I’ve got it covered!!!

Love and Hugs,

  1. Hi Kristen,
    Ok, so I'm really loving the concept of this blog.
    I'm a follower for Torrid and most plus sized fashion but to be frank some of their prices are apalling.
    Anyway, I totally agree with you that there just aren't enough resources out there for us plus sized women, half the time we're stuck shopping at some thrifty store hoping the clothes we buy don't make us look any blimpier than we sometimes feel.
    I've been playing around with this notion in my head for quite some time about doing fashion for bigger women and I want to take pictures and kind of turn it into my own magazine.
    Your blog is totally geared towards that, would you be interested in putting our heads together and coming up with something fabulous?
