How long have you been blogging? 1.5 years
What or who inspired you to become a fashion blogger? What led you to it?
I am inspired by the need to feel beautiful at any size. Even if you are trying to loose weight you just love you body as if before changing it.

I would like to blog full-time, but for now I am happy to produce content on a consistent basis.

My waist. Even during my weight gain, I have been able to maintain my shape.

Plus girls should keep themselves covered up. No crop tops or bathing suits
