Wow, 2011 is drawing to a close and what a year it has been!
My journey started in January when I took part in Plus Size Tall’s Plus Model Search.
I ended up coming third and the boost it gave me was amazing! At that time I was unsure whether I wanted to become a model or just make a point but it felt good to be doing something so body positive.
I had my first photoshoot:
And my confidence soared!
A few months later I went onto to enter Curvy Kate’s Star In A Bra…
I came third, again! And in a way I feel that was the best outcome. Lizzie is a deserving winner, my favourite model and someone I really look up too, a lifelong friend! Emma was a beautiful silver placed minx and I hope she gets snapped up by an amazing company as she is gorgeous.
I get on really well with many of the other girls and all in all it was an amazing experience. And from that my blog was born! I enjoyed Star In a Bra very much and the idea of being a model for women who are not represented enough in the modelling world. I have good and bad days with my figure but generally I am at ease with how I look and how I dress and I have made some good discoveries through my fellow bloggers and the joys of the internet and sharing them seems like the best thing to do! I have to thank you, my amazing readers for my amazing successes and triumphs and I hope you have enjoyed the blog as much as I have and I’d love your continuing support next year.
My plans for next year are to keep going as I am with the blog and just see where it takes me. In January I will be on your screens so watch this space, that is all I can say for now! My giveaway competition will be launching for you lovely ladies all over the world. I will be featured in the lovely Velvet D’Amour’s magazine, hopefully have my long awaited shoot with Evans and I will be available in a miniature form…I am so excited! So thank you 2011, you have been amazing, bring on 2012!
