It feels like I have been waiting for this day for forever and never have I been more excited to tell you my news. Last summer Marie Claire announced a competition to become their new plus size columnist, I toyed back and forth whether to apply and finally in the last possible week I decided to do it. Sat in front on my computer I poured my heart into my piece, a piece that I would eventually submit. A few months later, working through my emails, one popped in with the news that I had won. Beside myself with excitement and joy, a rush of emotion ran through me and right there in my office at work I sobbed. The tears were not only for me but for all the plus women that have yet to be represented in a magazine. This journey as a blogger has been so wonderful but I am so excited to get the chance to show my skills as a writer and be the first ever plus size columnist in the UK. I am both overwhelmed and excited for what is next for me and for plus size fashion. If you want to read my piece you can find it here. So there you have it, you are now looking at Marie Claire's very own curve columnist, the magazine is available in stores and you can find me on page 101 I hope to do you all proud.
