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 💙 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🐺⚔️❄️

If you watch, who do you think will end up the Iron Throne? 👑 #got #gameofthrones #winteriscoming #forthewatch #allmenmustdie

AD | GIFTED 🌼 Don’t mind me, just pretending I’m at Coachella this weekend instead of working ✌🏻
.

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.
.
Head over to IGTV to see the campaign video ❤️🎥 #plussizetraveltoo

I’ve been a little quiet...

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

Do you ever get those...

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 🤷🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️

AD | GIFTED 🌸 Is anyone else loving this warm weather? Despite all of the hail we’ve had today the last few days have been glorious and I could definitely get used to it. As much as I struggle in the heat, I think I’d much rather be hot than cold (can always jump in the pool that way) ☀️

Would you rather be hot or cold? ❄️☀️

How To Find The People That Will Inspire You | Lifestyle

Pinit

This is a paid advertisement in collaboration with Sunlife.


When it comes to being a blogger and full-time freelancer, surrounding myself with inspiring people is incredibly important. Often, I find that I am discouraged and my motivation is at a low. When this happens, spending time listening to inspiring podcasts, watching incredible videos and seeing all of the achievements I could achieve if I was motivated is the best possible way to get me back on track.

To help you feel inspired too, Sunlife have asked me to share how I find inspirational people to follow:

Follow Inspirational People On Social Media

One of the best ways to make sure you’re always connected to inspirational people is to follow them on social media. For most, this will be where they share their wisdom and inspirational quotes. You never know when you may be scrolling and you see or hear exactly what you need to help you get through the day. Whether it’s following them on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook – filling your feed with people you aspire to be like is one of the best things you can do.

Attend Events And Conferences To Listen To Talks

Another way I have discovered people that I know I want to connect with is through the events I have attended. Whether it’s blogging events, events centred around being a freelancer or travel conferences – I have listened to so many different inspirational talks. My favourite events are those that last a couple of days, leaving you feeling as though you’re ready to get started on all of your incredible ideas.

Join Local Groups And Communities

If you want to attend regular get-togethers with incredible people, try joining some local groups and communities. One of the best ways to connect with amazing people is to throw yourself into the deep and attend networking events. Whether it’s Women in business events, local networking events or even a course or class that you’ve joined – you will definitely meet some incredible people. 

Keep Up To Date With The News

Whilst this may seem as though it can deter your mood, it’s is a really good way to keep up with what some of the most inspiring people in the world are doing. The best type of things to keep up with is actually day-time TV shows, as they will showcase all of the incredible stories the news doesn’t.

Follow Online Communities

There are lots of different online communities you can join in order to meet inspiring people. Whether you choose to join Facebook groups, follow hashtags or join someone’s membership – there are so many incredible chances to join communities that can change your life for the better. If you can’t find the perfect community for you, why not make your own and encourage other people to join?

Do you want to connect with more people? Where can you find people that will inspire you on a daily basis?
