Plus North - You beauty

PLUS NORTH. Oh Plus North.

I'm going to do a picture post when I get my camera back from my lovely little sister so this is going to be a bit of a brain purge instead. How narcissistic. 

WHAT A WEEKEND, it was incredible. I've spent time with some of the rocking-est, gorgeous-est, hilarious-est people that ever there was. I met people I had only seen on thumbnails, I wore a dress that made me feel like a mermaid (a good thing obviously), got to call myself a model (crazy stuff!), plus I got mega inspired by women who know their shit. 

As I say, I'm going to do another post but I just want to get all this out there (plus I'm currently on Woodhead and have a brain full of fluff and thinkings) I feel like this weekend has given me a total brain turnaround.

I tweeted that I found going back to the "real world" last night HARD. Less than 24 hours with the gorgeous girls of Plus North but the whole time I felt confident, happy and secure. I was entirely myself the whole time and didn't feel like I had to be anything but.

I went out last night, it was my beautiful friend Anne's 30th birthday (I need to get hold of a picture of how she looked last night because you guys would have your minds BLOWN) At the party itself I was great because my friends and Anne's friends are absolutely mega and I love the bones of them. But on the way there, and when I was outside, I didn't like it. I just didn't like it.

Judgey stupid foolish people. The people physically shaking their head because they can't believe that a lady with a round tummy and a juicy butt could be confident and wearing what they daren't even wear. It can really knock you, particularly when you've been in a warm cocoon of plus sized fabulousness. The urge to slink* (*totter in shoes that HURT dude) off into a place where nobody can see you (toilets/corner of the smoking area/home) can be pretty intense. 

BUT DONT WORRY!!! I talked to myself. I talked to myself HARD, and: 

Now, I can just think about how I felt when I walked down that catwalk, or when I sat at a long table of incredible, intelligent, beautiful, funny women and felt fully included, not looking nervously in from the outside. I look just the same, I'm in the same world, I'm the same me so I am going to FEEL the same.

So Becky, Toni, Simply Be and all the other people who put together this phenomenal event. Thank you sincerely from the bottom of my heart for letting me be part of it xxx

  1. Ah! i found your blog and you do write well...in fact we have similar styles of musings.

    Was a pleasure to meet you. You're absolutely gorgeous. Not gonna lie, was a little gutted when you said you were married (ha!).

    Looking forward to the picture blog and I am currently writing the biggest mega blog EVER of my life on the event. Can't wait to share my take on it.

  2. Who made you feel like that, WHO? I want to know so I can go and shake them HARD. Those people are just insecure themselves, and so project onto others.

    Anyways, enough about them.

    YOU my dear, are a beauty. And I'm following, and pimping you out to all that will read you. You, my dear, are just fabulous!

    1. No YOU are!!! It was the terrible tram people, oooooh they're TERRIBLE. But I am over it and back to my best (strutted into to work this morning until I realised I'd forgotten my fob and had to turn the strut into a defeated shuffle....)

      Would love to see you again soon Supergirl x

  3. Oh Em! I've just cried a bit reading this! It's EXACTLY how I felt over the weekend and I've been on a bit of a low since I got home :( I don't think I looked at my body in a shameful way over the weekend which was an absolute first for me. I was just so happy and proud of absolutely everyone there.

    I'm going to try and give myself a good talking to as well. We deserve to feel good like we did ALL the time.

    Absolutely loved meeting you, you had me in stitches! Lots of love xxx
