Animal prints are taking over for Fall 2018 and it comes in a variety of colours, textures and prints from zebra, leopard, cheetah and the most popular one this season – snakeskin. I love anything bold and vibrant so this look Had to be tried!
So chronic pain and my injury have been kicking my ass this year so I did not feature quite a few looks I have styled over the months, instead posting them on the Gram. But it is not fair for my readers here and I will make more of an effort to post them here first as I always have in the past!
With a sort of blank slate after everything that has transpired, I encouraged myself to start posting on the blog again so here we are.
You don’t have to buy all of the trendy things to be stylish; pick and choose what you feel works for you. Make trends work for You instead of the reverse.
Here is a write-up I have been meaning to post on the blog since mid-2017, but what with the injury there was a lot on my plate. But like I always say, better late than never.
Although most of 2017 was pretty difficult, there were some important life lessons that I picked up on and my personal body positive journey saw some amazing changes.
When online trolls feel it is their civic duty to shame a plus sized person, and then a skinny person because neither of them fit their idea body. When people are trying to incorporate weight loss as a part of body positivity, because they need to lose the weight but still want to be part of the movement. When thickness is celebrated but fatness is remonstrated.
Those sharp stabbing pains down the spine suddenly had me spiralling down to those dark recesses of the mind where nothing good lingers. The loudest voice in there screaming into my head: I AM TIRED.
