I'm a fat girl. I wear glasses. I love myself as I am and have sooo much gratitude for everything in my life.
Currently based in Stockholm, Sweden after living in Germany for over a decade (still asking myself why) - my roots & heart remain firmly in Cape Town, South Africa.
A mixed-race, right handed over-thinking bloggerpreneur. My feet on the ground but my head high in the clouds. Older than you think, heavier than it might look (actually technically obese) and a self-confessed social media junkie.
Thanks for checking out my blog! Keep on loving yourself you beautiful person you!
The Story behind FGWG
I wasn't always fat, nor did I wear glasses. But as I grew older, my metabolism (hypothyroidism combined with a love for good food) and my eyesight (genetics) changed.
I began my blog early 2015 as an outlet to express my personal style and to hopefully be able to motivate even just one over-the-BMI girl struggling with low self esteem to believe that she is the fcuking bees knees. Because quite honestly, beauty comes in ALL shapes and sizes... And with us plus-sized girl theres simply "MORE TO LOVE"....

FGWG is supported by a small hand-picked team of crazy creatives, developing, producing content and assisting with business enquiries. Much love to our professional hair and make up artist AnnaAnna, photographer extraordinaire Bijon De Kock (Munich-based) and Daniel Ahlberg (my go-to in Stockholm), styling fashionistas, Nikki, Donna and Lisa and of course Matt, our talented graphic designer. Friends who stay up late, eat pizza after a shoot, pose way too much and remain quiet way too little:-)
