Hope your all ok.
There is a really exciting event taking place in Warrington on Sunday the 16th October and I am lucky enough to know the two amazing women who are putting it together.
Jordan Ozmaya who is also Miss Curve Northwest Rose and her best friend Rosie Shields are two of my friends. They came up with the idea of Plus Side Pride in order to encourage more people to have pride in their body. The motto of the event is
''Bringing an end to Body Shaming''
In the society we live in today, there is a LOT of body shaming, whether that is in the media or comments on facebook, instagram or twitter by stupid little trolls. We live in a world full of hatred and that is a very sad place to live, but these two have come up with a way for us to help and encourage people, not matter if you are a size 2 or a size 32, whether you are black or white (yes I sung Micheal Jackson in my head a little bit), if your 3ft tall or 6ft tall, a man, a women, different abilities or sexual orintation everyone should have pride in their body and who they are.
Plus size Pride as I said will take place on Sunday 16th October (this sunday), it starts at 11am and is being held at Anima Jazz Bar in Warrington (location website is below for directions). There will be stalls selling plus size fashion from brands such as Apples and Pears Clothing, Petticoats-A-Plenty and Fairy Handcrafted Wings to name but a few.
There is also going to be a fashion show, which I am happy to say I will be walking in (yes thats a plug haha come see me haha).
The best thing about the event is that all of the proceeds are being donated to the Rosemere Cancer Foundation, so not only is it a big confidence boost for us it is also going to help a well deserved charity.
These two women really have inspired me so much with their confidence and ambition and I am so proud to call them both friends.
