It’s been a while since I have blogged on here but I am coming back with some great news! I have battled over 1000’s plus size ladies to the become one of 30 finalists to fight for the title of MISS PLUS SIZE INTERNATIONAL 2013 (title formally known as Miss BBW International)
Miss Plus Size International is a pageant exclusively reserved for women who a size 18+ and promotes body beautiful confidence for us ladies with a little junk in the trunk!
When I entered the competition I never expected to get to the final 200 let alone be one of the 30 finalists who get to strut their stuff in the final! The finals this year are being held in the The Grand Connaught Rooms (The Brits and Glamour Awards have been held here) and we are collecting money for MacMillan Cancer Support, a fantastic charity and one close to my own heart!
My next stage is a “boot camp” where we have pageant training, team building and hopefully lots of laughs. I watched the film DROP DEAD GORGEOUS the other evening and secretly hope that Pageant training involves dancing with step ladders, unlikely, but hey a girl can wish ;).
As well as the pageant the team also host BIG GIRLS PARADISE club nights, this is a touring nightclub that celebrates body acceptance and curves. I went to the club on February 9th with my best friend Shelley and our men. It was a fantastic night with lots of great tunes, dancing and rose wine! Keep an eye out for the touring club nights, they aren’t exclusively for Plus Size women, anyone can go along for dancing, drinks and frolics!
So my journey has just begun, I’ve been a finalist for a week now and it’s only starting to become real to me. I would love it if you could follow my facebook fan page here:
I promise to not overload your news feed everyday!
Mr Stables and I went Christmas shopping in Farnham today. My beautiful husband took me for a Christmas hot chocolate with whipped cream and marshmallows at Costa Coffee and we pondered around the shops buying presents for our loved ones.
Its cold today so I wore my beloved Julian McDonald Russian hat, I brought it from Debenhams in September for my honeymoon in Edinburgh and wear it nearly everyday. I went for a vintage Jaeger red jumper and my worn-to-often navy blue skirt from Primark. My red coat is from Marks & Spencer and my brogues are £5.00 bargains from New Look! My outfit today was all about comfort and keeping warm but I felt gorgeous. As its very nearly Christmas I decided to crack out my red lipstick for the festive period.
Hope you like it 🙂
I am pale like a vampire. fake tan??? nahh it’s winter I am going for my white glow =)
Wearing my favourite knitted pencil skirt from Primark, my butterfly jumper from Henry Holland and a waist belt that my friend Sam left around my house, not sure she’s ever getting it back :p
I love this outfit, pencil skirts and jumpers are my favourite combination for the winter months and I wear a variation of this outfit lots.
Love it 🙂
