Hello world, The Fluffy Fashionista here! I am excited to be a part of the online presence My Melanin Rocks! I’m twenty- seven, pursuing a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I’ve always loved the mental health field; I sincerely enjoy helping others and examining how the mind works. I will discuss all sorts of things because my mind is usually in 876,893 different places per day, however I am extremely passionate about self love mixed with awesome plus-size fashion.
Throughout my life I have always been plus-size; as a kid I was teased for my round pie face, full lips and plump nose. As I got older the same traits I was teased about became traits thought of as appealing but it took me awhile to get to a point where I thought they were awesome. I’m now at a place where I love all my appearance has to offer and I dress accordingly. I love seeing a plus-size woman — well put together with a nice outfit, fly shoes, and a beat face.
I dislike the phrase “pretty for a big girl.” If you slay, then you slay; size is irrelevant. I hope to inspire my fellow fluffy sistas to embrace the skin they are in, to love themselves, to wear bold beautiful colors and believe that a two-piece swimsuit isn’t just for the flat tummies.
