Be The Role Model You Want To See

So I wasn't chosen to be one of the Yours Clothing, #BeTheBlogger bloggers last week, and you know what? Thats ok. I won't lie. I was disappointed as HELL on Friday. I spent time wondering WHY I wasn't good enough to be chosen, what did others have that I didn't? Why them and not me?

And then I kicked myself HARD and picked my fine self up and came to the conclusion that there is NOTHING wrong with ME. It is not about the others being better than me, prettier than me, younger than me, or cleverer than me. THEY AREN'T ME. They are them, and I need to not compare myself to others. There were some absolutely amazing blog posts by the wonderful women in the final, and I support them and congratulate them for what they achieved and I will cheerlead them hard, all the way. It took til late Friday night to discover inner peace, and that was when I realised that I didn't LOSE anything, instead I GAINED so much.

I gained a lot of new friends. Some fabulous women who before this competition, I didn't even know. I think we all supported each other through this competition and will continue to do so from here on in. (waves pom poms)

I rediscovered a love of fashion blogging.

These pictures are two of my favourite images ever. I am DAMN proud of them. There is no-one who can take that away from me.

And over the years I have created some great fashion posts. I am 41 years old. I am plus size with crazy bright hair,

and there is a place for me, and if there isn't. I will damn well MAKE ONE.

Who is with me?

Let me know



  1. Yes Kellie! I'm so glad that what has come out of this competition is even more support for the blogger gal squad. Celebrating other women and their successes is definitely what we need more of in this world.

  2. Love this SO much!!! Totally glad
    To have met you through this competition and couldn't agree with this post more!! Xxxx

  3. I think this is a great idea but it's not one that I can do. I have various MH conditions and physical limitations. It means I cannot be the role model that I want to be. You also need to love and accept your life and body and that just doesn't apply to me. My mind and body are constantly fighting which leaves me battered and exhausted. But this is where people like you come into my life and it makes me happy that people I admire can live the life they want. You're my heroine. Carmen

  4. Love this.

    Still wish you won though.

  5. This is absolutely wonderful and I look forward to reading more of your posts :-)

    The support for the bloggers in this was immense- so glad to have been introduced to you through it.


  6. YAS! You look bloody great in all the pics, and I'm glad you found inner peace and rediscovered your love of fashion blogging, too :) . Great to see all the support for the other women too. To conclude, you ROCK.
