I hope you are having a great weekend! This week was an absolute blur between the pod, the blog, live show prep for Monday, and more! I was blown away by your responses to my inclusivity challenge. Seriously. Whoa. I am really excited for the next three months and to learn as much as possible (and support brands that ARE doing a good job). There is definitely a forgotten majority here and as I stressed on Instagram, I am not changing my content – it’s going to be the same stuff EXCEPT I am shifting to focus on brands in line with my style that accommodate a larger ranges of sizes. Stopping at a size 12 is unacceptable.
Also in big news from the week; this happened, which I still can’t even believe (all thanks to you guys and your AMAZING testimonials). My mom is in town this weekend (she’s coming to our live show!) so basically I am doing lots of family time and lots of work this weekend! Whatever you’re up to, I hope it’s fantastic! Oh and PS – for the fellow bloggers/etc that read here, I was on the Influencer Business podcast this week, if you want to check it out. Talking all about how I work with brands. XOXO
Before we dive in – two friends doing cool things that I’d love for you to check out. My friend Christine just launched a beautiful new website and my friend Alyssa launched a cool new line of (very clever and funny) merch!
