British Plus Size Awards: Best Achievement

If you follow me on any social media platform then you are probably already of my endless posts about The British Plus Size Awards at the weekend. I will do a proper post about the night, outfits and more but firstly I WON!!!!!!!!!!!!

You might know that I had the pleasure of being nominated for two awards this year - Best Blogger and Best Achievement. I was really proud to be nominated for both of them,  but the Best Achievement won definitely meant the most to me!

The award was related to the hashtag #WeAreTheThey which WE ALL worked on earlier this year. If you're new to We Are The They then you can read about it here and here. You may remember that WE ended up trended with the hashtag on more than one occasion, which was amazing in itself.



I wanted to say thank you to everyone who voted for me but it doesn't seem enough. After all, I didn't make the hashtag trend on its own - YOU DID! Anyone and everyone who used the hashtag made it the amazing success that it was. You helped to support and uplift other people and for that, I am so thankful!




Of course, I am proud to have started the hashtag but as I said at the awards "This is for anyone who has ever been told they can't wear something because of the way they look".

With presenter Jeff Brazier

The awards was amazing and in all honesty, walking away with the trophy was the absolute icing on the cake. I can't even put into words how happy I am and how grateful I am to everyone that helped make it happen!



I know, this is a something and nothing post but I wanted to post and say thank you as soon as possible because I am truly blessed and you all made it happen!

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

The Plus Size Awards: What To Wear

Voting has closed, they're being counted because..... The Plus Size Awards are just 5 weeks away! 

I'll be hot-footing it down to London to attend the awards, mainly because last year was so much fun and the food was delicious. This year will be a little more nerve-racking because I am nominated for two awards... I KNOW!!!! #Excited

I am so lucky to be sponsored by Lady Voluptuous this year so I will be wearing one of the fabulous Lady V London dresses to the awards ceremony on the 21st November. However spending the weekend with Scarlett & Jo has got me lusting over very pretty dresses so I thought I'd do a little wishlist post on other dresses I could wear!

Simply Be


Yours Clothing


Evans



Lots of these dresses would be perfect for Christmas parties too! There are quite a few options this year so make sure you shop around and find something perfect for you. You will see that I haven't got full on awards ceremony for some of the dresses, but I think it's really important that you feel comfortable with what you wear. When spending this amount of money on a dress it's great if it's something you can wear more than once - which is exactly what you get with any of these!

What sort of dress would you like to wear to an awards ceremony?

Don't forget tickets are still available if you'd like to attend the British Plus Size Awards 2015

Why I'm Excited To Attend The British Plus Size Awards

As a plus size blogger I always love to hear about new events within the plus size community. Shopping events, fashion shows, night clubs, seminars and more, when it comes to plus size events I have been to them all! Each and every one of them have been different, but yet give me the same warm fuzzy feeling.

To someone who hasn’t experienced it or in fact needed a community like this, it can seem a strange concept but I tell you now it really is like nothing else. When I started my blog I didn’t know much about this community or what it could offer me but finding it has been life changing!

That is why I love the fact that the British Plus SizeAwards have been invented, to celebrate something that I feel so passionate about. When I attend plus size events I get to be surrounded by positive people who feel just like me. People living in larger bodies knowing that they are worthy of happiness and not letting their dress size hold them back. When you write it down it seems like such a simple concept but often harder than it seems.



I attended my first British Plus Size Awards last year and I had a ball. For starters as a fashionista I loved seeing so many women dressed up to the nines. I had proper dress envy over some of the outfits people wore - a proper array of colour and sparkle which set off the evening perfectly.

I then sat back and watched plus size women, men, brands and more celebrated for what they bring to the table. It was fantastic watching people support others and of course feel proud of their achievements. It was fantastic to see people realising what they have done is so important and being recognised for that!

I love that there are different categories – for new bloggers and more established ones for example. I think it’s great that we celebrate models, fashion companies, underwear choices, entertainers and much more. It really was a great night and the perfect excuse to don a posh frock and eat good food.



Of course it goes without saying that I cannot wait to attend again this year. I am going with a 
handful of friends but I know that when I get there everyone will be friendly and welcoming. Everyone who attends the event is there for the same reason – to celebrate just how much this plus size industry has come. It’s made some very important steps forward this year and on the 21st November we’re all getting together to celebrate – will you be there?
