Dressing for Mother's Day
It's one of our favorite celebrations of the year this month - Mothers' Day!
We celebrate all mothers and women doing good around the world. Keep doing what you do, your presence and work is appreciated.
Make sure to spend some time this month doing something you love with someone you love.
Below are some suggestions of ways you can spend your time on Mothers' day. Have a great one, ladies!
If you have little ones, you can play dress up and visit fun places around your city you've never been to. Make sure to take photos of the day. One day, you'll want to remember the special day of Mothers Day 2018.
If you're a nature lover, you can have a relaxing day in nature by yourself or with your loved ones. You don't have to do this on the day we all celebrate Mother's Day but you sure can set aside a day or weekend during the month to breathe in, breathe out and be grateful for the privilege of life!
While going to the beach is a favorite and special fun activity to go by yourself or with friends, not everyone is lucky enough to live by a beach. I'm not! But I sure love to take walks around my city, enjoying the sites. You can do this too! It's a good way to reflect and think.
But hey, if you are lucky to have some girlfriends in the town town where you live, you can take the afternoon or evening to have a girls' day out. A maxi dress is the perfect outfit for an outing like this. Put up some natural-looking makeup and step out for a fun time.
But who says you must go outdoors in order to have a good time? For most of us, an evening spent at home in solitude, with family or with friends is exactly what we need to unwind. Get out your comfy clothes and let loose.
From the SSBBW team, we wish you all a Happy Mothers' Day and a splendid month this May!

Fat Positive Blogs
Blogs are a wonderful source of information. I have found them to be a useful Fat resource, especially when it comes to body positivity and fatshion. It is so helpful to see what clothes look like on bodies that are shaped like ours. It is also helpful to know that there are others out there who have the same life struggles that we have. You might get a different perspective on how to deal with things, based on the experiences of others.
I recently joined a group of plus size bloggers. We are taking one fashion topic a month and doing a blog hop. Our first topic was leggings. We all did a blog about it, linked our blogs, and published them at the same time. It is so great to see the many different ways an item can be worn on a fat person, from smaller plus to super plus.
Here is a link to my blog. In it, you will find the links to all the other blogs.
Here is a list of some fat positive blogs that might help you on your journey:
"Sing out loud in the car even, or especially, if it embarrasses your children."
"God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers."
