Hope your all ok.
So another month is over already and so much has happened this year for me, I have majorly been working on my blog, I got a new job, I am making plans to move in with my boyfriend and I have become so much more confident about my body.
The last thing I mentioned is such a huge deal for me. This time last year I hated how I looked, I had tried numerous amounts of diets, from calorie counting, weight watchers, slim fast, the list could go on and on forever. I wasn't happy looking in the mirror because none of my friends looked like me. They were all thin and gorgeous and always looked amazing no matter what, and me, well I was the opposite. I didn't know what clothes to wear for my size, or how to do my make up or anything.
Then I found the amazing community of Plus Size women.
I have had the pleasure of talking to and meeting some of the most amazing women, who have helped me to realise that it doesn't matter what anyone else looks like. This is my body and I should love it for what it is. I should feel comfortable with who I am, no matter what anyone else says, does or looks like, I shouldn't feel bound by any rules to feel like I cant wear something because of my size, I am me and I am FABULOUS.
So for the month of May I wanted to let some of these lovely girlies know exactly what they have done for me and how they have helped me. Every Sunday this month I will be showing all you lovely people one women who has helped me to love myself more. I am calling it Mega Babes May.
This week is my first and I wanted to show a women who has not only helped me but who I feel has taken me under her wing, gave me a huge cuddle and sent me back out into the world with more confidence then anyone ever has. That is non other then the drop dead gorgeous Kat Henry from The World Through Kat's Eyes
I first heard of Kat on Instagram, she always looked amazing and I was always looking at her pics to try and get makeup ideas and try and get style tips when she uploaded her lovely full length outfit posts. I started commenting on her pics and she would talk to me back. The first time it happened I didn't know what to say, I think I actually only replied with a smiley face haha!!
Little by little we started talking more and tagging each other in ''what I'm doing now'' posts, and just talking generally. I remember thinking how amazing she was and how I wished I had her confidence and spirit.
One day a meet up for bloggers was posted and we both spoke about going, I said I would meet her off the train and that was it. I met her and from the second I saw her I new she was gonna twice as amazing in person as she was behind a computer or phone screen.
When everyone had left, it was just me and Kat and we went for drink at Costa, I will never forget her saying to me how happy she was that she had seen me growing more and more confident. Kat what I should have said then was it is partly down to you, showing me how amazing I can be in my own skin and not having to change for anyone.
Ye so both of us love a good selfie, whats wrong with that HAHA!!!!!
Not only is Kat amazing at blogging she is also one of the most photogenic people I have ever met.
She is also Miss Surrey Curve 2015, this is another amazing part of who she is. She gets to show off how brilliant, funny and confident she is to all people around her. She is such an inspiration to me and so many other people and I just wanted her to know how much she means to me and how much she has helped me to change.
Kat thank you, oh and by the way, yes I will still continue to photo bomb you at every opportunity.
Love you hunny :D
I encourage anyone reading this to check out Kat's page because she is AMAZING!!!!!!!
See you soon
