This week on the Friday Fashion Blogger Takeover we have the wonderful Amie Waters-Dev. Amie blogs via her own Instagram channel! Her style is very street and cool. She’s truly unique and we love her so we know you will too!
How long have you been blogging?
Ok! I am a Instagram blogger and have been blogging for around 8 Months don’t quote me on that it could be a little longer! @theblueeyedgirl94 come check it out and say Hi! I am aiming to create my own web page where I can blog more in depth and connect with my gorgeous followers!
Who’s your main inspiration?
I can’t say I have one individual that I would say inspires me, I find the Plus size and Body positive communities on social media inspire me to love myself and help others love their self! After all I don’t believe you can be truly happy if you don’t love yourself first! There is one or two women that keeps me MOTIVATED to accomplish my goals and believe in myself @jen_ny69 @Amrezy these Women just keep it real and I love that about them!!!!
Tell us something about yourself that we don’t know:
I don’t take life to serious I always try to focus on the humour and positive vibes. When I wrote this Particular blog, People around me were telling me to write in a serious professional manner? Haha I was like AS IF I am going to do that! This is me and I am not going to play my personality down on the chance someone may not like me!
If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
At the moment I am next level obsessing with going to Santorini and Punta Cana! It just looks like peace if peace was a place on earth!
What do you enjoy most about being a blogger?
Giving people a new confidence! It just makes me so happy when people reach out to me and tell me that just by me blogging about myself and life has effected them to change their views on themselves, it’s so rewarding seeing these people change over time actually I think change is the wrong word I mean watching them find themselves.
Do you face any challenges with being a plus size blogger, if so how do you overcome them?
Personally I am quite lucky at the moment I haven’t faced any challengers but am guessing the longer I stick at it I will start to face some! I do always remember back to when I entered the #FACEOFYOURS model competition, Yours Clothing reposted a photo of me behind the scenes of the first test shoot before the selected the Winners! A young girl commented on the photo claiming I was too skinny to be a plus size model? Comments about my weight never got to me before but for some reason this comment got me! I was so upset I just kept saying what the hell is wrong with me I don’t fit in anywhere. After talking to my boyfriend he made me realise that I don’t need to fit in anywhere just do what makes you happy and keep helping other girls so that exactly what I did!
What advice would you give to someone who’s just starting out as a plus size blogger?
Stay true to yourself! Don’t feel the need to change yourself to be liked, if people don’t like you for who you are well then there clearly not worth your time!
What do you love most about your body?
Ok! People can read this question and take it differently so here is my take “I love how strong my body is, when I was younger I was attacked by a dog I ended up in hospital and nearly lost my life! DEEP right? the funny thing is the doctor said if I was an inch skinnier he doesn’t think I would of made it!” its mad because you would never know it happened by looking at me, as I just look like I have small bruises its incredible if where talking about a body part well you are all going to laugh but I love my waist! Not a common answer I know but it’s true
Do you blog full time or just as a hobby?
I blog as a hobby at the moment I literally don’t have the time to commit doing it full time.
