My name is Inie Emiowele, I am a Nigerian lawyer, and a lover of all things fabulous. I am very passionate about plus sized female lifestyle because as plus sized girl, I have some experience on how it is to live in a world that has set almost unachievable standards of beauty thereby sometimes making me even wonder if the word beautiful and my name should be used in the sentence without the prefix “not” LOL…
I had thought writing about living life as a curvy black woman will be a walk in the park , I mean like duuh I am a veteran plusie (stretch marks ,cellulites and all eek!)..Having to write about it has really brought back all the memories times where the things that make me so attractive were the things I hated the most about myself, yes I used the word hate because it was that serious.
The feelings of self-doubt are brought on by those tactless people who come over and ask “ohh your sisters are so slim how come you are big?” or “you want to try that dress? Hmm it won’t fit a fat person?” or even the one that still makes me cringe at just how shallow people can be “ahh I won’t be surprised if you are dull because fat people aren’t usually smart” duuh this fatty is a lawyer so I literally twirled on my haters LOL.
On a more personal note let me share with you something real quick about one of the many ways I have improved my confidence. So you see, my breasts came quite early and so as a teenager I already had these huge breasts that always made me feel so uncomfortable and self-conscious and whenever people looked at me I just would feel as though they are staring at how huge my boobs were and I always felt so shy and prayed that they should go away. You see, I was doing something wrong definitely I was wearing ill-fitting bras which do not particularly inspire confidence this continued until I got perfect fitting bras that hold me firmly in place and also has aesthetic value that alone played a huge role in making me embrace my curves better and now am a proud fabulous G-cup mamma.
The list is endless am sure many of you have heard similar or even worse things, In the end here I am a woman who has embraced of all her curves in this air brush generation and not to worry, I will show you just how to embrace, accept generally OWN THIS BODY.
This one is also for those who spend their time obsessing over how beautiful you would look if only you could lose just a few pounds, now it’s very good to want to be the best you can be but until then will you keep wallowing in self – pity and sulk each time the scale doesn’t turn in your favor? The answer is NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! so stick with me sister and know that you can be absolutely beautiful and sexy (yes I said the S word LOL) at any size if you make the right effort.
I will be discussing various things from time to time not forgetting to share tips that have changed my life on fashion, living, health and even sex *winks* and every other thing that’s revenant to life on this curvy lane.
Please don’t forget, it’s all about beauty and beauty is way beyond size and so until next time please stay away from those nasty muffins fatty LOL….JUST KIDDING.
