Happy Flyy Girl Feature Friday Mofros!
I am so happy to present to you another, Fabulous Brown Blogger Beauty, whose personality definitely makes bringing you features on them, that much more fun for me. I get a chance to find new bloggers to follow and befriend and that’s cool for me as much as I hope it is for each of you!
Today’s Flyy Girl Feature has a blog that not only gives you the curvy layout of Plus Size fashion, but fun, engaging stories of real life experiences.
I love Optimistic Women.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Please introduce yourself to the readers:
Char Reynolds, NYC (by way of Louisiana)
Evolution of a Fat Fashionista is a fashion, body image, and beauty blog. It’s pretty much an extension of my personality: a mix of nail polish, pretty shoes, and learning how to love the skin I’m in.
Why did you begin blogging?
I am getting back into the blogging game after taking a break from my other (now closed) blog, Hyde and Seek. There, I focused more on just body image issues and fat acceptance. With Evolution of a Fat Fashionista, I am adding in the fashion and makeup side to my activism, because I am always evolving (pun intended!) and learning that I can be beautiful, fat, and fashionable and these don’t have to be mutually exclusive.
What motivates you to dedicate time to blogging?
I have to have an outlet. Writing has been a way to keep myself sane and focused,and I love being able to either uplift someone or make them laugh with my antics. It’s just been an overall amazing way for me to connect with people, and I love it!
In one year, what do you hope manifests from your blogging?
In one year, I hope to continue to grow my readership and build up my YouTube channel I have connected to the blog.
Name two of your favorite bloggers you follow:
On the fashion side, I’m a huge fan of Gabi of Gabifresh.com
. Reading her blog has pushed me to attempt different trends I wouldn’t have tried before. On the beauty side, I love vlogger Missy Lynn (www.youtube.com/user/start2finishmua
), she has such wonderful, easy tutorials.
What legacy do you want to leave behind for others to know about you?
I want people to know…that I was a person. A perfectly flawed person who lived her life learning to love all of herself, and (hopefully) taught others to love themselves too. As they are, because they’re enough. You can wear and eat what you love and love yourself all at once.
Upcoming projects or events:
Upcoming projects: I love to cook and I am writing a cookbook. I’m going to add some recipes to the blog as part of a new feature starting in September. Look for the cookbook to be out at the beginning of next year!
Make sure to keep up with Char via social media to get heaping eye candy on her fabulous meals and recipe ideas. And don’t forget to stop by her blog and subscribe! Have a Happy Flyy Girl Feature Friday.
