Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I talk about body positivity, style, inspiration, social justice, and whatever the hell else is on my mind.

Recommitting to YOU and ME!

This past year has been incredibly amazing in every way. I have been planning my wedding with the love of my life (we are getting married on Groundhog Day of 2013). I visited Turkey and Kenya over the summer.  I have been on a spiritual journey of self-acceptance. I have put on a bathing suit and gone swimming in front of strangers!  I have made new friendships and let toxic ones go.  I have laughed and cried and danced and sung.  What I have not done, is paid any attention to my blog or my website, Curvy Sexy Chic.

For the year ahead, I want to rededicate myself to this endeavor which was born two years ago.  I was inspired to start it because I feel there need to be more spaces for women with regular bodies to feel good about themselves.  And today there are many blogs and websites that cater to our tribe:  Plus Model Magazine, Curvy Girl Chic, The Curvy Fashionista, Gabi Fresh and many more.  I love reading all these blogs.  There is wonderful information and incredible inspiration to be had everywhere!

I resolve to rejoin the plus size community and be part of the solution instead of the problem.  I commit to posting the following on my website and blog this year:

-Fabulous pictures of
real women and plus size models who represent us, wearing chic clothes and defining their own styles.
-Featuring a new plus size woman or model each week who is loving herself and making a positive impact on the plus size community.

-Useful resources, including links to blogs, websites and fashion designers that make clothes for Curvy Sexy Chic women like you and me!
    On a separate note, I am also recommitting to getting back to modeling and acting.  I realize now that they are two of my many passions, and that I must pursue them.   I can feed the fear of thinking I'm not good enough or thin enough, or I can feed my spirit and trust the positive voices that tell me I can be AMAZING.   I choose the latter!  I firmly believe that we need more actresses who represent what real women look like.  Our obsession with thinness must be stopped! We must start a size revolution if we want to see change in our society.  I want young girls to see role models of all sizes on the screen and beyond. Stay tuned for more on this topic in the year ahead!

    I can't tell you how thrilled I am to be back with a new zeal and a pep in my step.  Thank you to all my fans, past, present and future.  I really look forward to hearing from you and making Curvy Sexy Chic a place you'll want to visit often.  Until then, be well and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!


    With love and light,

    Pia
