What I… Meg from Mind the Curves

One of my readers, Meg, has recently started a blog and it’s such a fab new take on a fashion blog that I felt it was really worth sharing! Her blog is called Mind the Curves and as I’ve mentioned it is a fashion and lifestyle blog but with a twist – this one is for ladies with curvy bodies!

Written by the Girl in the Pearls, a professional journalist, editor and content strategist based who cares very deeply about the topic of body positivity her aim is to help herself and others learn to love, and rock, what they’ve got!

What I…

Know: I know that who you are inside is more important than what you look like, and that inner beauty will always shine brighter than all the layers of make-up in the world. I also know that if you learn to accept and love who you are – inside and out – you will be a happier person.

Love: Red lipstick. Polkadots. Pearls. Monsters and dinosaurs. Quirky prints. Cats. Cupcakes. Frocks, frocks and more frocks! A good horror movie. A gripping book. Time with my loved-ones.

Read: I adore urban fantasy and speculative fiction. Anything by Neil Gaiman, or local darling Lauren Beaukes. (I would settle for the amount of talent she has in her little finger). I tend to be a bit of an escapist when it comes to my media consumption 🙂

Want: I want to feel comfortable in my own skin. I want others to feel comfortable in their skins. I don’t want people to judge themselves by the bizarre and often unachievable standards made by a select few.

Wear: I pretty much live in frocks. I adore vintage style (fashion-wise, I should have been born in the ’50’s!). My closet is an overwhelming affront of polkadots in every colour.


Need: A healthy diet. Mascara. My kitten to stop jumping on my head in the middle of the night. Enough sleep. Oh, and a massage. Any offers?

Thanks so much Meg for joining me in this series. It’s such fun to share my space with you especially as I know you’ve been a Becoming you reader for quite a while! Good luck with your new site. It already looks like it’s going places!



P.S. And if you would like to see your own (or another) blog featured in this series feel free to email me the answers to your “What I…” questions!

Kathryn is a South African lifestyle blogger and mom of 2 who has been blogging daily for over 9 years! She writes about travel, health, beauty, fashion, decor and family... but not food (unless it's food she's eaten made by someone else) as she is a hopeless cook. She only wakes up early for 2 things... a red-eye flight to somewhere exotic and early morning game drives. She has just finished an extensive home renovation and would prefer to never see another box again. She's never met a chocolate or glass of bubbles that she didn't like!

  1. Absolutely love receiving Meg’s Girl in the Pearls updates (finally, something for us curvy gals!) – and naturally I adore BecomingYou (you’re my reading indulgence each morning before diving into e-mails). ^_^
