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.
.

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 🤷🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️

In case anyone was wondering, this jumpsuit is by far the comfiest thing I have EVER worn, and I’ll probably be wearing it for the foreseeable future. 🙌🏻❤️
.
.
I always thought that jumpsuits were off limits as a plus size person, but honestly, I’ve realised it comes down to finding what you’re comfortable in. For me, it’s oversized jumpsuits with a little bit of colour (this one is v v oversized and would recommend sizing down potentially). Now, can @primark please make this in a million different colours and patterns? Thanks 😏👏🏻

AD | GIFTED 🌴 I’ve been a little quiet around here lately and honestly, I’m so glad to finally be back to posting. The last week has been choc full of deadlines and I am FINALLY seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I’m definitely going to need a cocktail or two by the time I’m done 🍹

AD | Have you ever wondered what you would do if you were set for life? I know I have! Although there is a long list of things I would do if I was in that position, there is one thing in particular that stands out to me ⭐
.
.
As someone who loves travel and exploring new opportunities, it's hard to believe that there are still so many places left on my bucket list. Being set for life would allow me to travel somewhere new every month, giving me the opportunity to experience everything the world has to offer as I go. I'm thinking my first stops will involve snorkelling with sea turtles in Hawaii, completing the Inca Trail in Peru and spending the week relaxing in a floating villa in the Maldives. ☀️🍹✈

Whilst this may seem a long way off, The National Lottery are giving you the chance to win a monthly sum of £10,000 a month for 30 years with their new game Set For Life. Launched on 15th March, this is definitely an opportunity you don't want to miss! #ad #SetForLifeTNL #AmazingStartsHere @tnluk

How To Get Comfortable When You Travel

Posted on

Travelling can be super fun and a rewarding part of life. But it’s not always the easiest or most enjoyable thing to do in life. Sure, you may feel as if you cannot wait to explore the locations that you want to head to, but the travel isn’t always the most exciting part. Because when it comes to transport or experiencing new places, it can be hard for you to adjust. And if you’re entirely honest with yourself, you won’t always be the most comfortable. So, here, you may want to think about what you can do to change all that. Because travel and exploring the world CAN be enjoyable, you just have to approach it in the most efficient (and comfortable) way. So let’s take a look.

  1. Plan Well

To start with, if you want to absolutely guarantee that you will be comfortable, the best thing that you can do here is to be sure to plan the entire trip well, from start to finish. Make sure that you aren’t going on a flight that will be too long for you – or at a bad time. Timing can be everything to your comfort. Also, the time of year can matter too, so that you’re comfortable with the weather wherever you’re going.

  1. Dress Well

But then also, you will want to make sure that you’re dressing well. If you think that wearing high heels, jeans, and poorly fitting clothes will make you look great, then understand that you’re sacrificing comfort. Instead, you will want to make sure that you get a travel outfit together. Look for comfortable pants and search for a Crocs sale to get comfortable flying shoes. Also, make sure that you’re warm enough and can nap in your outfit if you need to.

  1. Pack The Essentials

As you’re packing your suitcase, make sure that you have everything you need too. Because you don’t just want to be comfortable on the flight. You will want to make sure that you’re comfortable when you’re away too. Here, you’ll want daytime and evening clothing options that are comfortable. But then also, shoes that are easy to explore in too.

  1. Take Comforts

But then also, you absolutely need to make sure that you have all of your creature comforts with you. And this may mean that you need to have a travel pillow or blanket. Do you even need to pack the latest travel accessories to help you to enjoy the flight? It could even be that you want snacks or books or anything else to help you to switch off, get comfortable, and make it to your destination well-rested.

  1. Book Accordingly

Finally, you may also want to think about what you’re booking here. If you know that you do not travel well, or that you want to have more space, then booking more room on a flight or going first class could be the best option for you. It’s the same with your accommodation. If comfort is important to you, especially if you’re wary of being overseas, then make sure that you’re booking a hotel that provides you with the level of comfort you need.

XOXO
