am thankful for the internet for allowing us to connect.
Megan’s Instagram is a place full of uplifting messages she describes herself as ‘ A Recovered anorexic, recovered self-loather, trying my best to shatter the ‘not good enough’ mentality we’ve all been taught about our bodies. As you’ll know if you follow my Instagram, I’m a big fan of belly roll love, exposing diet industry lies, and wearing pastels.’ I love what she is about and I think you will too.
Not only is Volup2 magazine created and run by one of the greatest women I have ever met – Velvet D’mour but is a page dedicated to diversity of all kind. Velvet includes able bodies, disabled, people of colour, trans gender and sexuality of all kinds. Her message is strong , that difference is good and should be celebrated.
I found Big Gal Yoga and Jess I was instantly obsessed. When you think of yoga you might thing it is something only slim women enjoy yet these two accounts are both excellent examples that you yoga and exercise is for everyone. When leaving their pages I feel inspired to move my body and practice mindfulness.
Jilly Peppa inspires me so much, her continuous positive outlook on her life and her success as a model with muscle dystrophy is an example to girls with disbalities, showing them deserve to live their dreams.
Style like you is a wonderful page created by a mother and daughter due sharing the stories and lives of men and women from all different backgrounds. The project #whatsunderneath project aims to get people to remove their clothes to honor how ‘style is not the clothes you wear. Their tagline is , ‘it is comfort in your skin, it is your spirit, it is What’s Underneath.’
Jes Baker is an body positive activist that has used her platform to encourage women to be comfortable with who they are and how they look. She is witty and funny and a passionate person. Her book ‘Things No One Will Tell Fat Girls’ is out now and I have no doubt is a wonderful as her activism.
Humans of New York is one of my all time favorite pages. Started by Brandon Stanton a photographer from New York, the page is dedicated to sharing the lives of strangers he meets on the streets, discussing the real lives and issues that every day people suffer every day. There is not a day that I read his page and don’t cry, the people and the stories he shares are so moving.
