To start off Nashville Curves Week, Fab Glance hosted a launch party! It was my chance to meet with Nashville’s curvy community, talk about the 2019 initiative, and celebrate our Summer Swim Class of 2018! We had so much fun! Below I share photos of the event and shout out our amazing sponsors.
Nashville Curves is successfully launched and completed. I’m so excited that the Facebook page is up and running. We have more than 100 active members and we are growing by the day.

Welcome to Day 3 of Nashville Curves week! Today meet the dynamic motivating diva, Jelly! I’ve known Jelly for a long time and I’m excited to introduce her to Fab Glance. Spend a moment with Jelly and she’ll have you feeling like you can take over the world. Seems like the right attitude for an executive assistant who hustles high-end self-esteem workshops and plus-size pageants on the side! She’s a force and you need to know about her! Read more below:
It’s Day 2 of Nashville Curves week and it’s time to meet Nashville’s newest blogger, CaNesha! I met CaNesha when she cornered me at a Blogger Exchange event. This vivacious vixen had MANY things to say about the characters in my book, Jack and Ahlia! From that point, we’ve become fast friends and solid supporters of our shared creative endeavors. As a fellow member of the #Young40’s club, CaNesha is dedicated to living her BEST life no matter what anyone has to say! I’m so excited to introduce CaNesha as the newest member of Nashville Curves, Class of 2018!

FabGlance is not the only plus-size blogger in the city. Every day I find another woman sharing her stylish plus-size experience online. When I stumbled across Kimmy’s microblog on Instagram, I knew I had to follow. Every day, Kimmy shares her great style and amazing ideas online. She never stays away from discussing the topics of feminism, race relations, and being fat in America. We need more truthful, young, vibrant voices like hers in our world.

What do you do, why do you do it?
I have a full time 8-5 job but that isn’t my passion. I do Instagram and social media because I have found these are meaningful ways to interact with people. It is also a space where less represented body types and less represented people, like people of color of disabled people, finally have a space to be themselves and get messages of support from followers and friends. I love having an online space and community to uplift people who are traditionally left out of a lot of spaces.
What made you embrace your curves?
When did you say, “I’m ok with me?” Honestly, joining Instagram was the biggest step in overcoming my body hate and turning it into body love. I found a huge community of women who were plus size and curvy. It was the first time I had ever seen women who looked like me, and they looked beautiful. I was able to shift my perception of myself and curvier and larger bodies by seeing these women, and seeing them apologetically love themselves authentically.
