Welcome to My World!

Hello world!

After months of umming and aahing and turning it over and under in my mind, I have finally taken the big FAT step.Welcome to J'adore Plus More. There is a huge selection of  fashion blogs out there, and I didn't just want to be yet another one. I want to be...different. The idea of starting a "fatshion blog" was first conceived in High Street Kensington underground station. I was with my girl Domzy (check out her amazing make up and beauty blog, Lashes and Pearls!), we were on our way to a networking event, on the escalators when she suggested, "why don't you start a fashion blog?".
"Who, me?", was my first response. You see, I wouldn't describe myself as particularly fashionable, but being the good friend that she is, she gave me the 'gentle' push I needed.
"It's not about fashion, it's about having your own style"...mmm, she has a point you know.

A couple of weeks later, I was in Paris, where I had the time, and the right mental balance to ponder over and nurse the idea, and voila! J'adore Plus More was born!

So what do I intend to do with J'adore Plus More? I will like to share with my "fatshionistas" the little I know about dressing well for our size. It will also contain general notes of the world through a big girl's eyes. Anyone who is a size 16 and above in this country  has probably experienced the horror of trekking the whole length of Oxford Street, and not finding a single thing that fits, and the things that do fit usually come with a hefty price tag to go with the heft waist line! I do not claim to be any sort of expert, but I would however just like to share the little I know and have a good time with it in the process!.

But before we get to the fun stuff, let me introduce myself.  My name is Madeline Asala, I'm a 23 year old Londoner, and a UK size 16/18 of Ghanaian descent. I wouldn't describe myself as an extrovert, but I definitely like to express myself - sometimes through words, sometimes through the clothes I wear.

So, embark on this journey with me ladies, and let's have fun with it. Amusez vous bien!
