Environmentally Conscious Fashion and Beauty

Making Environmentally Conscious Fashion and Beauty Choices: New Zealand plus size fashion blogger Meagan Kerr wears 17 Sundays Sage Striped Duster Cardi

It’s Earth Day today, and in the past I’ve done things like spend an evening with friends not using electricity (backyard candlelit BBQs are so much fun!), but this year I wanted to take a moment to think about how we could be making more environmentally conscious fashion  and beauty choices. It might seem like a small thing, and it might seem silly to some, but the choices that you make as one person or as a family, they add up. View Post

The Fundamentals of Cupcakes and Body Love

Guest blog by Grace Stratton from Grace Georgia

Cupcakes and body love

When I was a young girl I used to love baking, but I really disliked following a recipe. Don’t get me wrong,  I follow instructions but I have always struggled with the concept of doing something for an outcome somebody else designed.

I wanted to make cupcakes that were entirely my own. Yes, they would have the fundamentals: butter, sugar, baking powder and so on – but if I wanted to make them pink, that’s what I would do. If I wanted to add chocolate chips, then so be it. View Post

I’m Having Surgery

So, I’m having surgery on Tuesday and feeling pretty anxious about it. Some of you know that I’ve been having some issues on and off for a few years now, and I haven’t wanted to talk about it much, simply because I haven’t had the answers I needed to be able to tell you what’s going on. But now I do, so bring on all of the oversharing (this is why I’m a blogger right? Because I’m all about the overshare?). View Post

Floating Away: I Try Float Therapy

I’ve been wanting to go in a float tank since I was young but never got the chance until recently. I had a lot of questions before I went that made me hesitant to book an appointment. How does float therapy work? Do I need a bathing suit? Will I have to wear a robe that doesn’t fit me? Will I be too fat for the float tank? Basically all of the questions. View Post

My Active Body

When I look at the models in activewear ads, I never see bodies like mine. The fat, lumpy bodies with rolls and big thighs and tummies. My body is the kind of body that’s shown as a “before picture”, not as one that is active. Sometimes people with bodies like mine are photographed and made fun of, as I shared on my Facebook page recently, and quite a few people told me that things like this make them feel uncomfortable going to the gym or exercising in public. I don’t give a shit if you’re fat or thin, have wobbly bits or washboard abs, I think that everyone should have the right to exercise if they want to. View Post
