curvy and fabulous

Picking up the March 2012 edition of Madison Magazine I was struck by the beautiful woman staring back at me. Cue photo of Robyn Lawley, Australia’s leading plus size model; stunningly beautiful, statuesque and best of all curvy.

Inside the magazine Lawley discusses her responsibility as a role model for young women and as an ambassador for healthy body image. One of my favourite quotes from the article is from Lawley’s facebook page in which she wrote:

“Embrace your body for what it is, exercise and as healthy as you can and have fun. There is so much more to life then fitting into size 6 jeans. I’m glad I realised [this] sooner than later”.
Compare that to a statement made by Kate Moss who famously said “nothing tastes as good as skinny feels”... hmm I wonder who has a better outlook on life? Personally I would rather live my life to the fullest, eat what I want, do what I want, love who I want and experience every joy life has to offer. If that means I’m going to be a size 10 to a size 20, I say bring it on.

roses and hearts

Valentine’s Day. A day where your man or woman is supposed to shower you with love and affection! For women this comes mainly in the form of gifts such as a dozen red roses, delicious chocolate, sexy lingerie and or a fancy dinner. For men, it is a little simpler. Valentine’s Day is a sure way of getting sxc time, if he is in a relationship that is. Win win situation.

 Valentine’s Day is a day, celebrated every year, in which couples have an excuse to become soppy romantics, divulging in their deep love for one another. And the one day single people feel, well, single. However, couples get one day a year to celebrate their love. If you think about it single people get the other 364 days, or in the case of this year 365 days to celebrate being independent, free, sexy and happy. But then again I am one of those singles, so I may just be trying to make myself feel better....
