No One Wants a Large Miss Universe

It's so cliché to say "It's 2017, why is this still an issue?" But that is just the case for the topic of a woman that is not the "standard" size of society to do great things. I have not been watching the Miss Universe Pageant, but I did come across a lot of articles on the obsession people have about Miss Canada's size. Lets be very clear! Miss Canada, Siera Bearchell, is far from overweight. However compared to all the other pageant women that are typically thin she does have a larger frame.

Siera has not always been the size she is right now. At Miss Supranational 2015 Bearchell was slim like her counterparts. When asked about her weight gain in an interview she stated:
"This competition is more than what we look like. It's about being comfortable with who we are, it's about sharing a message that is important to us."

My Top 5 Tips to Beat The Winter Blues

Winter is not my favorite time of year. Lets be honest it is freezing all the time (and for someone with anemia like myself I am an icicle). The snow and ice is the biggest inconvenience. You have to wear layers and layers of clothes, and people don't want to leave their homes. I don't mind the cold as much since I have moved south but I am the happiest ever to not have to deal with the feet of snow back up north. While some enjoy this time many develop a Seasonal Affective Disorder, commonly known as the winter blues. People typically begin to feel fatigue, depression, hopelessness, and social withdrawal during this time. Although all types of depression is serious this one can usually be treated by making a few changes in your surroundings. Below I have listed my top 5 ways to beat the winter blues.

The Top 6 Misconceptions of Plus Size Women

Have you ever had a conversation with someone and shared things you have done or wore and they seemed surprised. Although we live normal lives, there are some people that believe our lives are anything but like theirs. I have complied the top 6 misconceptions of plus size women. Can you relate????

#1 Plus size women are lazy....

Most plus size women are not lazy. We enjoy getting out of the house and doing activities. Just because we are overweight does not mean we sit on the couch all day.

#2 Plus size women are totally unhealthy and near death lol

While I do understand some risk factors with our health, not all plus size women are having health issues. It is very possible to be over 200 pounds and still live a healthy lifestyle.
