Fat Bride!!

If you know me personally or you are following me on Instagram or Twitter you will know that I am getting married this year!!! I am so unbelievably happy that I can finally say that. I get married in July and honestly I can't wait.  As a fat bride I knew the ''in'' thing was to loose weight and fit into that dream dress. Every bridal magazine I bought was full of articles like ''How to stop bloating on the big day'' ''Loose 5lbs before your wedding'' ''Best detox diet''.

Hi Everyone 

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'' 
                                                             ( Jordan and Rosie) 


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 he…
