Thank you so much for visiting my blog!
I’m Jo, a new mum in my early thirties living on the South Coast of NSW.
I’m an Inbetweenie – walking the line between plus size and standard size fashion – trying to find clothes that are the right fit for my curves. I don’t pay a lot of attention to the little sizing tag on my clothes – I have things ranging from a size 12 to 20 – which should be proof that that tag really doesn’t mean much these days. If you want to read more about being an Inbetweenie – you can read all about it here…
I’ve had a complicated relationship with my body and I’ve been on a long journey – both of body acceptance and health-wise. You can read about my health journey here. One thing you will not read here is body negativity. A few years ago, I banned myself from talking negatively about my own body – I used to say things to myself that were horrid. I would never ever dream of saying those things to other people, and never stand for someone saying those things about a friend – and one day it dawned on me… Why, then, was I willing to say those things about myself? And from that day, I stopped. I can tell you that my relationship with my body has changed incredibly since making that one small change. Over time, it actually changed the way I think and feel about my body. It’s not a perfect body, but it’s my body, and I am happy. Genuinely happy. Just the way I am.
I have been bigger, I have been smaller – but my wardrobe has always been fabulous.
I describe myself as a ‘trend trier’ as I like to stay on top of current trends and try different ways to make them work for my body. I am a shop-a-holic with a serious online shopping addiction. I have Shopping Carts all over the internet filled with wish list items, just waiting for a discount code or sale. When I come across a great discount code – I like to pay it forward and share it on my Facebook page.
This (the blog etc) all started with Instagram. It’s my favourite form of social media. If you are looking for loads of outfit pictures – instagram is the place to find mine! I play along with Styling You’s #everydaystyle and try to take pictures of my outfits everyday so there’s plenty of stuff on my Instagram account that you won’t find here on the blog. Find me (@icurvy) here! I also love to connect with other Inbetweenies with the #inbetweenie and I run an Inbetweenie style showcasing account @inbetweenie_style
