I am not a fetish.

Instagram has taught me many things in the years I have used the platform. And one of the lessons I have learnt is that I hate men! Particularly men who treat me as a fetish. You would not believe the number of messages I receive on a daily basis from men telling me how much they like my fat legs or jiggly stomach - often accompanied with unsolicited dick pics, which no, I don't enjoy. I also get comments on my photos telling me how they love my "voluptuous body" with an array of emojis (most of which invol[...]

My Goals for 2020

I am not one for new year's resolutions as I think they are pointless. I'm sure most people have heard about the study which says only 80% people actually achieve their new year's resolution! However, I always like to have goals to work towards. That's why I have written a list of things I would like to master in 2020: Find a workout I enjoy and do it more.I'll be honest I'm such a couch potato. There's nothing I prefer than getting home, chucking on my pyjamas and getting into bed to watch YouTube. It's an[...]

Did I Achieve my Goals for 2019?

At the end of 2018 (Gosh it feels weird to say that!), I wrote up a list of goals that I had for the new year.

It was getting to October and I realised I[...]

[GIFTED] Unique Vintage x emilydiscovers Plus Size Christmas Lookbook

Are you a fan of vintage styling? Well, so am I! I have always been obsessed with 1950s looks but I've find it quite difficult to find classic clothing in plus sizes. We think plus size clothing is limited these days but imagine how hard it is to find original 1950s dresses in a size 20! That's why I was so glad to hear from Unique Vintage - a California based company that has both a physical and online store. They asked if I would like to pick out a few dresses and I was so excited! I scrolled through the[...]

The Story Behind My First Tattoo

WARNING - Discussions of mental health; particularly anxiety, depression and suicide. At the beginning of 2019, I decided that one of my goals for the year was to get a tattoo. After all, I had been considering getting one since I was about sixteen but what I was getting had chopped and changed. First I wanted a compass to represent the changing directions my life was going in - what can I say, I was a troubled teen! Then, at about 18 years old, I was totally considering getting the lyrics to my favourite so[...]
