Thankfully, in 2008 I began to come out of this shell. I began to talk to myself in front of the mirror and give myself positive affirmations that I would dwell on for the day. I had friends that saw something more in me than I did and always made sure I knew this of myself. I met a guy who taught me that it's OK to want to work towards being healthier but while you are curvy you have to embrace and love yourself. Slowly I began to embrace the curve and instead of using negative terms to describe myself, I started using terms like Precious, Thick, and Curvy and honeyyyy a diva was born...HAHAHA...
One of my biggest lessons was realizing how being curvy opened up this whole new area of creativity for me because I had to improvise on what I wore, work with a limited supply of plus size trendy clothes in Halifax and being the type of person that likes to stand out. It has liberated me to be more than I could have ever imagined when I was younger. The best thing about being comfortable in my skin is that I am now on a mission to help other young ladies feel the same. I hope that by what I do on this blog and who I am helps others to break out of the mold of being in the background in pictures (i was uber guilty of this), to walk tall, exude style at any size and embrace the curve.
I did this mini shoot with my friend Monty, I hardly do any shoots of myself, but I'm getting better at it. IT'S A CURVY REVOLUTION DIVASSSS!!!!
