Body Positive Pieces & Inspirations

I have been asked a few times now, how I found confidence and became happy in who I am. For me, I think it comes from surrounding myself with positive influences. A lot of that comes from a great group of friends who have never held me back, but also from online media. There is a whole wealth of writers, singers, talkers, poets and more who are all putting together pieces of art in the name of positive body image! I try to blog about them when they put together something new, but I know that sometimes they can get missed in the blog post list - especially when I have had a long week.

So here is a list (probably outdated by now) of people I like - whose words of wisdom and general stance on positive body image and confidence have made a difference or inspired me... I hope you like them just as much!!

How To Be Confident  A Video by Bloggers Danielle and Callie - Well worth a watch!

Whitney Trope - The now infamous lady in the "Fat Girl Dances" videos (YouTube it) and behind the No Body Shame Campaign, which is taking off massively! http://www.nobodyshamecampaign.com/

Carrie Hope Fletcher - A YouTube singer, West End Superstar and little sister of Tom from McFly. She released a video about body image and weight which I loved. You can read all about it here!
