I heard about the ongoing Curvy Blog Award by navabi and, after a minute of mental tug-of-war, I nominated myself to register. Why not? An all-expense paid trip to London to attend the London Fashion Week Autumn Winter 2013, 500€-worth shopping voucher and meet-and-greet opportunity with Anna Scholz are at stake! And this much-awaited chance to get my virginal passport get dirty and...and...and this slim chance to spot the Spice Girls and/or David Beckham in the flesh! Ok, I'm already thinking ahead.
I know I'm no fashion champion like the other known plus size fashion bloggers. I recall one of my guy friends saying he can't determine my fashion style as I switch from donning feminine to ethnic/bohemian to sporty to casual and what-else-next. I know there's nothing distinct nor outrageously daring about my style. At this time, I like it comfortable but not too comfortable either. Fashion for me is about functionality and individuality. But it doesn't end in what we wear, really. A big and genuine smile is still my favorite accessory.
So what the hell was I thinking to compete with the fatshionably forward ones? Well, I'd like to give it a try. At this age (yep, I just turned 30!), haunting what-ifs are not listed in my future plans. This blog attempts to capture the plus size lifestyle - the first-time highs, the make-up madness, the sale alerts, the unending path to healthier diet and fitness, girltalks, the search for inspiration from God, fellow real-life goddesses, appreciative men, motivational music, movies and poetry. And I'm hoping this holistic approach can convince the jury that I deserve this opportunity.
But, hey, before the jury could review the candidates' blog entries, they need to determine the Top 10 out of the 285 nominees. Please, please vote for my humble virtual niche here and help this birthday girl make it to the Top 10 before November 25th. Pretty please?
