We love watching what other plus size bloggers are doing around the world.

We are constantly amazed to see the empowering community within the curvy community. We are excited to show you one of our favourite curvy bloggers from the USA, Tess Holliday. Ryann Maegen Hoven, known professionally as Tess Holliday is a famous plus size blogger from the USA.

From a young age she was bullied but that never stopped her from embracing her own style and fashion sense. Not only this but it never took away from how much she loved the skin she was in. Constantly standing up and believing in herself.

Setting the standards for plus size modelling, Tess is constantly proving that you are only as good as you let yourself be. She shows everyone, both old and young, that loving yourself will lead to complete happiness. After growing up with tough childhood, she shows us that no matter what knocks you back, you can always get up and achieve your goals.

Missisippi born and L.A. bred, Tess has been modelling since 2010. She cut her teeth working for many indie designers and brands. She continues to work for some to show support for those who support her.

In early 2015 she broke boundaries when she was signed to Milk Management in the UK, making her the first model of her size to be signed to a major agency

She has appeared on the cover of People Magazine, LA Weekly, and been named one of the worlds top plus models by Vogue. She started the body positive movement in 2013, and continues to pursue this avenue to empower people from all walks of life to embrace the body they are in right now.

Often, we find ourselves stuck in a social media loop, consuming content that can affect our self-worth and happiness. We have more of a tendency to compare our reality to someone else’s perfectly curated and edited highlight reel. 

Staying positive and keeping our spirits up is challenging. It takes work. Affirmations and mantras are positive ways to encourage ourselves daily to keep going. Here are some of our fav self-love mantras!
