Trek America Atlantic Dream | My Tour Diary | Travel

August 5, 2019

My trip with Trek America was discounted in return for content both during and after my tour. All views and opinions, however, are my own.  As I sit here writing this post it has now been exactly two months since I was sat in the Newark Airport Hilton Hotel waiting to meet my Trek America group for the first time. Even two months…

5 Ways To Remember Your Travels | Travel

July 29, 2019

Although I have a lot of amazing memories from my travels, sometimes it’s hard to remember certain aspects of a trip. It’s not that they’re something I want to forget, but travelling so often means it’s easy to forget the small things that have happened. From remembering a delicious cake in a coffee shop to remembering the walk from the hotel to the…

How To Make The Most Of Your 100ml Flight Allowance With Travel Minis | Travel

July 22, 2019

This post is in collaboration with Cosmetify.com.  One of the most difficult things about travelling with a carry on suitcase is that you have to be really frugal when it comes to liquids. With only 10 x 100ml allowed in one case, prioritising what I really need to take with me on each trip is important. Although I wish I could take all…

My 7 Favourite Experiences On The Atlantic Dream Trek America Tour

July 14, 2019

  My trip with Trek America was discounted in return for content both during and following my trip. Although I received the trip at a discounted price, all of my opinions are my both honest and my own.  I have lots and lots of Trek America content planned for the next few weeks, but one of the most common questions I have been…

I'M KIRSTY LEANNE

My mission is simple. I want to help change the way travel looks, showing both brands and society that plus size people really do travel too. In a community where plus size travellers are made to feel unwelcome, I want to inspire and advise people like me on how they can make the most out of their own incredible travel experiences.Join me as I share my own personal experiences, my best tips and tricks and all of the challenges I face along the way. It won’t always be an easy ride, but it sure as hell will be a fun one.

Together, we can change the way that travel looks today

WHAT TO EXPECT

  • Happy Friday! 🙌🏻 A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that I had to cancel my upcoming trip to Thailand due to the fact things had been a little slow when it came to freelance work and blogging opportunities. As gutted as I am, I also decided it would be best to put all travel on hold for at least six months - excluding the odd press trip, if I was to be invited on one ✈️💙

Although the rest of my 2019 looks quiet in terms of travel, little trips and opportunities are starting to crop up. From speaking at Social Travel Summit in Italy to being on a panel at Borderless Live in London, at least I know I’m not going to be stuck at home the *entire* time. I’m also going to try and explore places that are a little closer to home, as honestly, I don’t think I’ve seen half as much of England as I should have 🏡 •

What do you do when you don’t have the opportunity to travel as often as you normally would? 👇🏻 #travel #travelblogger #tbloggers #travelblogging #travelblog #tblogger
  • AD | This is the happy face of someone who has realised she can wear playsuits, short skirts and dresses all summer long thanks to Ivyverdure. As much as I stand by my trusty anti-chafing shorts, sometimes it’s just too hot to wear them with everything, right? 🤷🏼‍♀️☀️
•
•
I’d honestly written off being able to wear playsuits and short dress for fear of chub rub, especially when walking around extremely hot countries all day. That was, until I used @ivyverdure irelief for the first time ever, of course 🙌🏻
•
•
This magical (yes magical) anti-friction stick is designed to stop chafing and rashes. All you need to do is rub the formula where you’d normally experience chafing and then go about the rest of your day. I find I have to top up every now and again for the best results, but I know lots of people can go the whole day without having to reapply. It smells delicious, it’s easy to apply and it’s small enough to pop in your bag when you’re on the go. At just 60ml per stick, you can even pack it in your hand luggage for a flight! ✈️ •

If you want to try Ivyverdure for yourself, they have kindly given me a discount code for you to use for 15% off - all you need to do is enter KIRSTY15 at the checkout ❤️🙌🏻 #Ivyverdure #Irelief #antichafe #chubrub #travelessentials #blisters #organic #vegan
  • AD | Gifted 💫 Today has been one of those days where I have gone from feeling like a major imposter to feeling as though I have a great growth strategy for my blog in a matter of hours. I keep having moments of self doubt and with lots of exciting opportunities coming my way over the next few months, I’m starting to wonder why it’s me that deserves them. Although when I come across an exciting opportunity I tend to sit there and question my entire blogs existence for a few hours, I then get round to thinking how can I use this to my advantage and what does this mean next for me? Before long I end up feeling super motivated and excited about what is to come 🙌🏻

Does this happen to anyone else? 👇🏻

  • AD | Gifted 💫 I’ve still got lots of photos to share from before the day I dyed my hair, so I feel like my Instagram is going to look a little strange the next few days. I’ll try and mix it up as best I can, I promise 🙊
•
•
I think I have had a little bit of a mini identity crisis when it comes to Instagram the last few weeks but after my recent shoot with @unwrittenchloee I think I’m finally starting to feel motivated again. I want to start creating lots of different content when it comes to Instagram especially during those times when I’m not travelling as much. I’m going to try and be more creative when it comes to my shots and maybe one day, I’ll even stop playing with my hair when I pose 😂

❤️ Lobster dress gifted by the amazing @joanieclothing (yes that’s a pocket)  #joaniegal #joaniegals #joanieclothing #joanieplus #joanieclothingdress
  • Surprise! I’ve dyed my hair for the first time in over a year 🙊❤️
•
•
Although it was supposed to be more ‘mango’ than it is ‘cherry’ (I think of depends on the light) - I am really starting to love the change. It’s amazing what new hair can do for your confidence, isn’t it? 🥭🍒
•
•
Also, how AMAZING is this Primark dress? I actually bought it to wear with boots in autumn, but couldn’t resist shooting it in Birmingham yesterday. I think I’m getting far too impatient for autumn fashion, especially now it’s coming into stores 😂🙊

  • AD | Gifted 💫 Time for another shot of the denim dress you all loved so much? Can you believe that I let me boyfriend pick a couple outfits for me whilst making an order and this was one of them? He’s apparently much more fashionable than I am 😂🤷🏼‍♀️
•
•
Speaking of my boyfriend, tonight is our monthly date night. He wants to go to TGI Fridays and I want to go to Zizzi’s and we cannot come to a compromise at all. So, which one should we go to? 🍽🥂

  • This is one of my favourite views in Wroclaw, purely because it’s so colourful and pretty. In the four times I’ve visited, I have actually booked the same Airbnb twice because of its location and I can definitely say that the view from the balcony looking out over Swidnicka and Rynek is worth the (very affordable) £40 a night 🙌🏻🌈
•
•
Although I have no plans to head back this year, I really hope that I get to go back soon. Of course, I’ll be booking the exact same Airbnb 🙊
•
•
Where is the one place you’ll always return? Mine is either Wroclaw or California 👇🏻❤️

Although I talk a lot about the problems plus size people face when they travel, I wanted to go that one step further and show it in a way that would make EVERYONE want to listen. With such a long list of images I wanted to create, a couple of months ago I hired an incredible designer (@creatiffi) to help create them for me. She has done an INCREDIBLE job, as I feel they really get across how we may feel when we're travelling  even if we don't say it outloud. Whether it's being worried you won't fit on a ride or awkwardly laughing off that a tray table doesn't fit, deep down we're thinking something completely different to what we may be saying or doing.
.
.
So, whether you're plus size and you can relate to these images or you're straight size and you want to help bring attention to the #plussizetraveltoo campaign, I would LOVE it if you could share this post far and wide. Tag your friends, post on your stories or even send them over direct message. Thank you so so much ❤
