AD | GIFTED 🌼 Happy Easter Sunday Instagram! I’m going to be spending the day with family at a BBQ, eating ALL the cake and chocolate. I. Cannot. Bloody. Wait. 🍫❤️
.
.
Also, can you believe this photo was taken on my phone? I’m so pleased with how all of my festival shots turned out, even if I am still washing glitter out of my hair a week later 😂✨
.
.
I also want to point out that no flowers were harmed during the shoot, as we stuck to the tracks that had been made by the tractors for harvesting the rapeseed 🌼 .

AD | GIFTED 🌼 Happy...

AD | GIFTED 💙 So far today I have managed to try baking a cake without turning the oven on, put beef in the slow cooker without plugging it in (at least five hours ago) and have rubbed my eyes after cutting hot chilli peppers. At least bad things only come in threes right? I think it might be time to give up and relax with all of my Easter chocolate 😂🍫

On a completely different note, how gorgeous is the dress from @joanieclothing? It’s perfect for this incredible heatwave we’re having - especially with a pair of chub rub shorts underneath. The plus size holy grail 🙌🏻 #joaniegal #joaniegals #psfashion #psblogger #psbloggers

AD | GIFTED 💙 So...

Bosnia is one of those countries that really surprised me when I visited. I knew Mostar would be beautiful, but as were driven from Croatia and through Bosnia, I couldn’t take my eyes off the road the entire time. From the stunning mountains to fascinating fruit farms, it definitely made the long drive (and multiple border control stops) worth it ❤️🇧🇦
.
.
Although I only spent a couple of hours in Bosnia and Mostar, I definitely want to go back to explore more of this beautiful country. ✈️

What country surprised you the most?

After a very late night waiting to watch Game of Thrones, I’ve definitely had a slow start this morning - I can’tbelieve there are only five episodes left! I’m really not ready for some of my favourites to die🐺⚔️❄️

Festival season is well and truly underway and I’m loving all of the out there outfits already. In the past I’ve always been put off dressing up for festivals as I thought I wouldn’t find anything that’s both comfortable and fashionable in my size, but this year I’m spoilt for choice (especially on the @prettylittlething @prettylittlethingplus website 👏🏻)

P.S. I think this is my *favourite* photo of me ever 🙌🏻

I’ve been a little quiet over on my main feed over the last few days as I was busy launching my latest project, the I Travel Too movement. 👏🏻💪🏻
.
.
Imagine flicking through a brochure or scrolling through a website and seeing only straight sized people. As someone with body confidence issues, it’s hard not to feel as though you’re going stick out like a sore thumb throughout your entire holiday. You won’t want to go to the pool, you’ll feel self-conscious on excursions and a night out would feel like a nightmare. Personally I felt have felt all of these things, and more, when travelling.
.
This movement is designed to change that.
.
A couple of months ago I did research into the travel industry to find out just how inclusive their marketing efforts are when it comes to plus size representation.  I looked at their websites, brochures, videos and social media channels.
.
The results, as expected, showed that travel appears to be strictly for slim, white, happy people.
.
In fact, 95% of materials I researched include NO plus size people at all.
.
I knew that as just one person I couldn’t make the waves I wanted to. and that’s where I came up with the I Travel Too movement.
.
I knew there were people out there just like me, loving life, living to their full potential and travelling the world.
.
Following the original post, further research showed that 35% of people travelling consider themselves to be plus-size, so I came up with the campaign  to show brands that they’re alienating a large portion of their target audience by excluding us from their marketing materials. We’re just as happy, just as fun and just as amazing as anyone else.
.

AD | GIFTED ⚡️ Another day, another door. I think if I don’t stop finding doors to pose in front of I’m going to have to rename my account to kirstyleanneanddoors, as it’s definitely getting out of hand now 🤦🏼‍♀️
.
.
As this has been the first travel picture I’ve posted in a while, I wanted to let you all know that I have something VERY VERY exciting coming soon. Whilst a few of you already know what it is as you’re involved,  I’m hoping it’s something that is really going kick start the conversations needed to push the plus size travel movement forward. It’s taken MONTHS of preparation, but it will finally be coming this Friday. This is your 3 day countdown klaxon! I’m so bloody excited/nervous 1️⃣2️⃣3️⃣

Do you ever get those days where all you want to do is lie by the pool in the sunshine? If only I lived in a hot country ☀️💙🌵
.
.
I used to hate hot weather countries as I worried that as a plus size person, I would really struggle to cool myself down. No matter what I wore I’d always feel as though I was 100x hotter than everyone else, even though they were probably suffering too. Luckily, I think I’ve *finally* worked out some of the best ways to stay cool, just in time for my trip to the states next month. Good timing too, as APPARENTLY it’s going to be around 30 degrees by the time we reach Florida 😯☀️ #cactus #cactai #cactusinstagram #cactuslovers #cactusflower #instacactus #cactusporn

AD | GIFTED ✨ Okay, okay, I know it’s not Sunday yet but after the week I’ve had I REALLY wish it was. While attempting to redo my theme I managed to break my blog TWICE - it was so bad I actually thought I’d lost my blog forever. Thankfully it’s back now and after I few more tweaks I may even have a new layout I love. Bear with me though, I’m not sure I have the patience to edit each post separately just yet 🤷🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️
