No OOTD/exciting new purchases today I'm afraid, just a quick post about a few things coming up in 'Fatshion' Land!
First up, Simply Be have launched a plus size model competition. Here is what they say about it:
"You’ve heard it on the news, you’ve seen it on the catwalks… oh yes, plus size is the new size zero and we’re going to prove it! Simply Be is looking for a new model, with the curves and the attitude to rock the plus size fashion world – and it could be you!
The Simply Be Plus Size Model Competition 2010 is now open!
Ever wanted to try modelling? Well here’s your chance because we’re running a plus size model competition! We’re looking for curvy women, from size 14 up. No experience necessary, but you have to be comfortable in front of the camera and happy to strut stuff down the catwalk. If that sounds like you, then we want to hear from you!
What’s in it for you?
We’ve got some amazing prizes lined up for our lucky winner! You’ll get £10,000 to spend at Simply Be… a double page feature in Best Magazine… a photo shoot for Simply Be’s Style Files… loads of portfolio photos… and a consultation with 12+ UK Model Management! So this really could be the start of your plus size modelling career!"
What a fantastic prize! I'm not sure if I will be entering myself, but I think I may try and persuade my sister. The good thing about this competition is that there is NO UPPER SIZE LIMIT! All it asks is that you are a size 14+. You can find out more and enter this fantastic competition here.
The next thing I am really excited about is the Bloggers meet up! This is taking place on the 24Th July, in London. The idea is to meet up at Waterloo station at 10am, and have a fun old day together. Going on the London Eye and shopping are on the menu I hear! You can find out more about it on the Facebook Group here. I love a day out in London, even if it is only about 40 minutes away by train, I still get mega excited whenever I go... After travelling to many cities round the world, my heart will always belong in London!
Just one more thing, don't forget the Big Bum Jumble on the 14Th August! The Big Bum Jumble blog is now live, find it here! I was recently interviewed for the blog, so I will be sure to tell you when it's up, but in the mean time, Check it out!
That's all for now folks!
