Hi ! I am Meriem, 23, France.
After years of self-loathing, I am now living in peace with my curves.
Self-belief was hard to conqueer, and bellydance helps me a lot in this process.

I have not always struggled with my body image. I was a competitive cheerleader for 12 years from the time I was in elementary school up until the age of 18. I was always very fit, being 5’7 and a size 2. When I turned 19 I seemed to plump up and gained 30 lbs. It took me a long time to finally accept the way I look now and love my curves. I am woman, hear me roar! <3
I wanted to try and show the many facets of being curvy and living a happy and full life;ultimately, just being at PEACE with yourself. I struggled for years, but I’m finally at a good place mentally and physically. I work out, and am focusing on toning up some areas, but am no longer miserable with myself. I found the key was to not focus on the clothing in a smaller size, but on the clothing in the size that flatters my body. It sounds silly, I’m sure, but it changed everything. Don’t buy size to “motivate” or bribe yourself to fit into it, get the real deal!
I was also told that “California is no place for you, you’re not stick thin, you’re gonna be miserable!” and well, let’s just say they were wrong. I fit in just fine. :)

Full review on my blog : Curves To Kill
Recently, I found the courage to finally go ahead and start a fashion blog that appeals to curvy, beautiful women
ive battled with my weight for a good 13 years of life ……im about to be 19 ladies and gents
I reached a point around my junior year of high school when i felt like i became comfortable with my body. Im 5’9 and thought i could be the weight of a 5’4 woman. Im so happy i have a mix of my latin hips and my black bodacious booty…i still have a bit to trim off but im in no rush :)
i respectfully dont idolize these thin thin celebrities because it will put me back in a negative mind set. Khloe kardashian, jordin sparks, and Cat williams are my inspirations. My confidence is through the roof and proud of it.
