Sadly, this might be my last blog post for a couple of weeks. I’m going back to visit my mum and to go to the Byron Bay Bluesfest (!!), and I have to tether internet through my phone and it’s usually pretty crappy reception in the hills. Boooooo. I will miss my little blog-a-log! But on the plus side, (I totally just wrote plus size – ha! freudian slip), I will have sooooo many exciting things to share when I get back. AND, i’m sure i’ll still be Instagramming like a fiend, so if we’re not IG pals – let’s make it happen! I’m HERE.
Firstly, I just wanted to brag (modestly, of course) about two things.
First one is: I just ordered some stuff from Candy Strike!! I’m very naughty, but I just CANNOT help myself. Mwa ha haaaaa.
Second one is: I am one of the Nearsighted Owl’s Fat Babes! And I couldn’t be more stoked with how I (we) turned out. Gomez is particularly chuffed that he got a look in, and that, in this case, the ‘camera’ LOST 5 pounds! What a svelte little boy 🙂
The last thing I wanted to share is something i’ve been meaning to for a while, but just haven’t gotten around to it yet. Tomorrow, I will be on the beach in my fatkini, and it will be my second holiday back home in which I get a chance to wear it. The last one was over the Christmas/Summer break, and a photographer friend asked if i’d like to do a shoot in it. And that was FRICKEN scary. So I said yes. And here they are.
Please note, although some of the colours and contrast have been altered, these photos have in no other way been modified. All stretch marks, cellulite, flabs and rolls are exactly as they are in real life.
The experience itself was all the things I expected it to be; exciting, scary, liberating, exposing. But to really top it all off, Eve (Tree Faerie) has been making a website called thetriggerwarning.com in which she interviews people about their real life experiences. So after the photo session, she asked if she could do a video interview with me. WELL, that was the scary part. The first time i’ve ever had to talk about all this body postivity stuff, at length, with conviction, and WITHOUT being drunk! Sheesh. Here’s the video. You can see my nerves. Eve did a beautiful job, and I can’t thank her enough for the experience.
Have an amazing couple of weeks, friends! xx
