Today our #PSBloggerBabes spotlight is on a lady who is a relatively new find for me but she is absolutely lovely. Let’s get to know her a little better…
150 years down the line someone somewhere stumbles across this interview. What would you like them to know about you and what inspired you to start blogging?
I started blogging because at the time I was seeing many women who like me lacked in confidence and had been dealing with a variety of issues such as poor self esteem and many had been bullied due to their size. I’d dealt with both childhood and adult bullying and though I could be a voice and example for like minded women. I was at a place in time where I was finding myself and was really on my way when it came to building my confidence and I thought I could help by using myself as an example.
If you could choose your age forever, what age would it be and why?
Well I’m only 30 now so I’ll say maybe 35? I figure this is a time in life where you’re still young but are hopefully somewhat more established and more confident in all areas of life.
In an ideal world, what would be your blog working environment versus what the reality is?
Haha in an ideal world the day would have maybe 34 hours instead of 24. I would like more time on the blog so that I can be somewhat more organised but I am working on it.
To date, what has been your favourite blog post and why?
That’s a really hard question to answer to be honest. If I can only leave it to one post it might be: http://mayahcamara.com/2016/05/28/back-to-my-roots/ I feel like a reached a personal milestone when I went natural and so this post shows me embracing my hair in it’s true state (quite a big deal for a mixed race or black woman with afro hair to do).
How would you describe your personal style?
My style changes with my mood so I would have to say. Random, colour coordinated and expressive.
Show us your favourite picture of yourself and why?
I love getting beautified for a glam shoot and as a lover of bling, sparkle and mermaids I did an aquatic mermaid shoot and always loved how the pics came out 🙂
What has been the biggest change in your life since you started blogging?
Being around so many plus size women! I was used to being the only fat person in my family, work place, friendship group or whatever. It’s nice to be with a community of women like myself.
What is the single most important thing you’d like people to take away from reading your blog?
I finish all my posts with the line ‘Remember whatever you wear, feel fabulous in it and wear it with a smile’. I really want to encourage people to enjoy the clothes, hair and makeup that they wear. No opinion is more important than the one you have about yourself!
Now for our quick fire ten…
What is your favourite ice cream flavour? Häagen-Dazs Tiramisu
If money were no object, where in the world would you go on holiday? I don’t think I’d only wanna visit one place so I would say a round the world trip!
What’s your favourite season? Summer of course!
Would you rather be a giant rodent or a tiny elephant? Tiny Elephant!
Last film you watched? Kingsman
Do you have a nickname and if yes, what is it? To be honest no lol people call me My for short lol
If you had your human body, but the head of an animal, what animal would it be? Lioness probably
What do you usually eat for breakfast? Toast and marmite (yes I know a lot of people hate it but I’m on the love side lol).
Who would play you in the movie of your life story? Oh lord I have no idea! Maybe Queen Latifah or Sanaa Lathan
