1 Year Blogiversary!!!

Wow!!!! All About That Bass turns 1 – that’s right – 1 year ago I hit the publish button on my very 1st post. I had no idea what to expect as I set off on this blogging adventure, all I knew was that I had a deep desire to reach out to those who thought that you had to look a certain way to look or feel beautiful.

It wasn’t (and still isn’t) about the likes or comments or the number of followers – NO – it’s never about something as superficial as that – this blog was birthed from a desire to uplift and inspire women just like me – who often measure their worth by the number on the scale.

Looking back on the past year – I have to admit – this blog has forced me to grow in ways I never imagined. It has been such an amazing journey of learning, sharing, friendship and most of all gratitude!

Every e- mail subscriber, Facebook “like”, share and comment!

Everyone who follows me on Instagram and Pinterest!

All of the likes, pins and comments on the posts I’ve shared!

The sweet bloggers who include me in their blogroll!

A huge and heart-warming THANK YOU!

Jeans and Tee

  
I’ve always loved the simplicity of a jeans and tee, although I’ve always felt that because of my size I just wouldn’t be able to pull it off. 

Well, well, well, look what we have here – stupid negative thoughts – It’s me – in a simple jeans and tee!!! 

Liberation – ha!

Orange is the New Black!

    
Just kidding – black is #boss!

I really do love black, but just because I’m a plus size chick, does not mean I can’t be colourful too! 

I find myself wearing/buying more colourful items the more comfortable I become in my own skin. I’ll admit, I still struggle with the bare arm thing – It’s really difficult to drop those negative thoughts about your body once you’ve been living with them for so long. 

However, small steps are still steps right?!?!?!?!?

    
I’m wearing another jumpsuit, which also tells me that I definitely am getting there in terms of being more confident in my body. I wouldn’t give jumpsuits a second look not so long ago. 

I do love the harem style and colour of this one – add to that the fact that it’s made from stretchy fabric and it’s a total winner for me. 

Oh and did I mention it has pockets?!?! Ha ha!!!

Monochrome


When temperatures are soaring in SA due to a heat-wave (reaching well into the 30’s – degree Celcius) AND you’re a plus size girl, you start imaging a life where Eve didn’t eat from that forbidden fruit!

It’s really, really HOT!

This dress is perfect though, lightweight and breezy, exactly what you want in this weather!

The monochrome fashion trend has been popular for a while now so I thought I’d give it a go in a colour other than black & white.

Fun Fashion Fact: 

“The skirt is the second-oldest garment, with only loin cloths predating it. Oh, and up until the 1600-1700s, men and women both wore them.”
