Real Talk: On #SmallBoobsClub & Idenity

Some of the harshest criticisms I’ve received for being fat have been from myself. Sure, in elementary school  I was called Crater Maker, was told I could block out the sun, and during swim practice Anthony P. liked to draw attention to “them rolls” in his loudest voice so it would carry over the dome of the Aquaplex. But those insults are tame in comparison to the things I said to myself in my head daily about being Plus Size…

With a food scene like we’ve got in Toronto, it’s easy to assume your options in small towns won’t be that great. But good food knows no bounds and as I traveled through Western Canada this summer I was intent on finding the spots locals love and getting some drool worthy meals in. Here’s a taste of the goodies you should check out of you ever make a trip to Alberta and BC, which – for the record – you…

Wanderlust: The Journey Home – Banff Part 1

What’s the saying? You can never go home? Is that a Mark Twain quote or a Bon Jovi song? Either way, going home can be hard, but you can do it. It just needs to be the right time and for the right reasons. Anyone who knows me knows I talk a lot about growing up in Alberta and how it informed who I am. Since moving East twelve years ago people have continually asked me, “What’s it like?” as…

In recent months, I’ve seen a huge surge in plus size appreciation posts around the web. Whether it’s a drool-worthy photo set of Tess Degenstein or a reminder that every body is a beach body, there are plenty of people out there who want to spread the word that fat is a-okay. Of course along with those posts come the comments from concerned citizens. They range from worrying about the health of the models pictured to speculation on whether one…

#WomanCrushWednesday – Sheer Mag’s Christina Halladay

Sheer Mag is a bad ass power pop punk band from Philly.  Their sound is fresh and new; with Lynard Skynard riffs mixed with attitude of punk.   As soon as I heard them, I was hooked.  Just as many others do, when I get hooked, I have to learn everything I can about a band.  There I saw her, Christina Halladay.  SHE’S SO COOL!  A fat babe fronting a punk band? YES. I already knew her vocals were bold and brash…

New & Terrifying: From Selfies to Runways & Magazines

12 Dec, 2014  |  by Yuli Scheidt

  In 2013 a new series idea was pitched for FGFS, called New and Terrifying. For the year 2014 I — and anyone willing to join me — wanted to go out and do things we’d never done before simply because the thought of it terrified us. Something I’d always wanted to do was model. For the last 20 years, except for a disillusioned period right after dropping out of Photography School, I’ve been taking photos. There’s been a number…

Wanderlust: A Trip to (Northern) Ireland

11 Nov, 2014  |  by Siobhan Ozege

I feel very fortunate to feel so connected to the two very distinct cultures that make up my being. As a child, I spent a lot of time learning about my father’s Turkish/Islamic heritage. The food, the tradition, the spices, etc. We were always surrounded by other Turkish-speaking friends, and often ate Turkish meals at home. Although I haven’t been to Turkey since I was 10 years old, I still feel like I have some innate understanding of what it…

Thinking back, I can honestly say that I’ve never had the chance to experience a day surrounded by babes who are my size. Above average, plus size, voluptuous, fat- doesn’t matter the specified or preferred title, I still can’t recall any situation where I wasn’t around people smaller than me. I’m not saying that there is anything wrong with being skinny, because there isn’t, but for a self-identified happy fat chick, having a group of ladies with similar body types…

Wanderlust: Fat Babes Explore the Wineries of Niagara-on-the-Lake

8 Aug, 2014  |  by Yuli Scheidt

“I re-watched Sideways recently, so I’ve got this,” I said to a friend days before we set out to tour the wineries of Niagara-on-the-Lake. First off, it was three fat babes rolling those back roads, not some modern-day milquetoast version of Felix and Oscar, and we finished the trip off by hitting up a buffet, not some foolhardy wedding. Really the comparison begins and ends with winery tours. It was only a short trip down the highway, but we felt like…

#WomanCrushWednesday — Lizzo

5 May, 2014  |  by Amarina Norris

by Amarina Norris | Photo via My #WomanCrushWednesday this week is incredible indie hip hop artist @lizzobeeating. She has crazy rap skills and I am obsessed with her thrift clash style. Crop tops, lingerie-as-daywear, and lines like “thrift store shopping, look like Anna Wintour,” this body positive force of nature is at the top of my fashion inspo AND summer mixtape lists.
