It seems like every time I’m on social media I see this babe pop up for another super awesome thing she’s doing. Marie is a writer and size acceptance advocate, currently working as an associate fashion and beauty editor at Bustle and I always thoroughly enjoy her work. She’s worn a low-rise bikini on a beach and documented the reactions she received and another time she sent out a photo of her makeup-free face to see how Photoshop experts would manipulate the image to make her ‘beautiful’.
Recently Marie participated in one of my favourite body positive projects, What’s Underneath. In her interview she talks about how she became the activist she is today and her struggles with self-acceptance. It’s definitely worth a watch.
Honestly, she has accomplished so much in such a short time that anything I write here would inevitably be insufficient. Please check out her blog and get lost in the mountain of challenging work she’s done to advance the body positivity and beauty diversity movements.
