For those of you that don’t know me or are new to my blog heyyy…..my name is Alexandra but everyone calls me Alex, i am 28 years old, a plussize model & blogger, bit of a workaholic & i am totally addicted to clothes shopping!
So i have 2 jobs the first one is working at the one and only Yours Clothing, one of the top plussize clothing stores. I love my job. I love the clothes (& the discount), the fact that there is a range of clothes that cater to my size & also the girls i work with who have become my friends…or so i would like to think lol. My second job is at my local shop Nisa. I have only been there a few weeks but i like it the days go by fast and i pretty much get to see the people i know…everyday!!! The downside to living in a small town where everyone knows each other.
I never used to be that into fashion believe it or not. I used to dress in my nike tracksuit with my hair slicked back and me big gold hoops in! Yes…I was that kinda girl. I currently have 4 storage boxes full of clothes (probably all new with tags), a pile of clothes on top of my chest of drawers that need to be listed on eBay, 2 tidy rails pack full of clothes, a washing bin that is overflowing with even more clothes, a 6 tiered shoe rack packed with boots/shoes/trainer/sandals, 4 jewellery boxes full bracelets/earrings/necklaces, a draw full of designer hairgrips (my Romany side lol) & makeup……way too much makeup!! I mean who needs 20 lipkits, 13 palettes, 6 mascara & god know what else is in my drawers. I obviously do! My name is Alexandra & i am an ADDICT!
(This is the current state of my room! 😂)
I’ve realised lately that I always post about clothing, whether it be on my blog or instagram & stopped writing about myself & the thing i have been up to. So i promise to try and keep you more updated!

Had you heard of CurveWow before I literally just mentioned it?!
You should have….I am in love with their clothing at the moment! CurveWow is an online based clothing company that sells on trend plus size clothing from sizes 16-32.
“Cold Shoulder Keyhole Tunic”
Your probably thinking that girl be crazy taking pictures out in the snow dressed like that….dont get me wrong I was freezing, the things we do for Instagram posts ay!
In this picture I am wearing a size 22, this item is pretty stretchy material so I didn’t feel the need to go up to a size 24 (i normally wear a size 22/24), however if you don’t like clothing that tends to show your lumps and bumps i would advise going up one size. I love the way this tunic fits for me. The shoulder and neck design is 👌🏼 and it is the perfect length not to short/not too long so i can wear it with my jeans/leggings.
“Lexi Sleeveless Shirt Dress”
The shirt dress i am wearing is in a size 22-24. I love that you can style it in different ways whether it’s buttoned up/undone/ top underneath. My favourite feature though has to be the side splits, for me this is perfect item for summer. I can see it now…. Bralette. Shorts. Sandals. Coachella!!
Whether your looking for that perfect item for a party, smart item for work or just the odd casual item to chill out in CurveWow have got you!
Make sure you check em out.

Have you seen the trailer to this film yet???
If your answer was NO click here.
The film is about Renee Barrett, an ordinary woman who struggles with feelings of insecurity and inadequacy on a daily basis, wakes up from a fall believing she is the most beautiful and capable woman in the world, despite looking the same she has always looked. With this newfound confidence she is empowered to live her life fearlessly and flawlessly, but what will happen when she realizes her appearance never changed?!
I know it’s not just me who is excited to see this new movie!! I love that they have created a movie that shows how people feel when they hit the shops, go for nights out & just daily living. Ever since I saw the trailer last year I have been waiting for this film to hit the big screen. However the film is not due to be released until the 20th April (USA) & 4th May (UK).
Even though this film has not aired yet it already has mixed reviews from the public. After being premiered on the Ellen show it hit Twitter and lets just say it didn’t go down well!
What’s your opinion? Do you think this movie is Inspirational/Body Positive or not?

Let me tell you this day did not start easy! They say bad things come in 3’s….right! I travelled down to London for this photoshoot. It’s about a 2 and half hour journey when everything runs smoothly. The journey was running fine..until we reached London. There was tons of traffic, roadworks, a road was closed off that i needed to go through, had to detour another 20mins round and to top it all off the sat nav died and i had a arguement with my mother (who btw was being very nice by driving me) But 4hrs later I finally arrived!!!
The photoshoot was held by Ria (WeBBW_) at Studio 101 in London.
The amazing photography was taken by Mekx Photography & my make up was done by Devoiler.
The photoshoot was put together to try help boost body confidence, start that modelling portfolio that you have always wanted or just have a laugh & meet new people.
I attended this shoot as I needed more photos to build my portfolio, I had such an amazing experience.

<p><p style=”text-align: center;”>Recently I attended a photoshoot with a gorgeous girl, Layba. She is a photography student at Leyton College who is currently working on a project based around plus size women.</p><p></p><p>
</p><p></p><p style=”text-align: center;”>Two different shoots took place. Layba used acetate paper on a projection screen to reflect words onto my body. One of the papers had words that were all positive and empowering and on the other sheet the words were hurtful and negative . This was done to project the way we feel and how society makes us feel. </p><p></p><p>
</p><p></p><p style=”text-align: center;”>I love how Layba thinks outside the box, she has decided to base her work on plus size women &amp; comes up with all the different looks to shoot. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her and hopefully we’ll do it again something in the near future!!</p><p style=”text-align: center;”>Check out her Instagram page for more of her amazing photography: <a href=”https://www.instagram.com/w.photography_777/” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”>LXSA.W</a></p><p style=”text-align: center;”>Just A Plussize Girl ��</p></p>
