Hello, beautiful people!
I’m Bea, owner and writer of Every Size is Beautiful blog (http://beatrizzzbajar.tumblr.com). My heart’s actually erratic while writing this piece because it’s my first time to write as a guest blogger. Honestly when Mitch asked me to be her guest blogger, my eyes bulged and for the first time I didn’t know how to reply to her e-mail. I am speechless too for like, a minute or so, since I’m not so sure I could do a piece that would make her readers happy, plus given my review schedule, my daily routine’s actually a mess right now. Thankfully, Mitch is understanding and kind enough to consider my concerns
Anyway, when I finally hit the reply button to Mitch’s e-mail, my thinking capacity went double time to address a specific subject that is both dear to me and Mitch. We were thinking something related to beauty since I’m into product reviews, but I realized this is the perfect time to lift up Mitch’s and my blog’s advocacy, which is Beautiful at any size. It’s been a while since I posted something inspiring about women’s beauty at any size because I rarely post OOTD’s right now. So analyzing that thought, I was thinking, “Hmmm. This would work!”
So, enough of my endless chatter, let’s go to the main event. I’ve decided to share with you ladies (and gents) regardless of size, age and race, my mantra to feel gorgeous and stunning everyday – with a dress size of 12, of course!

For that statement, I meant every word. People around you are your best support system, so be sure that they give you inspiration and motivation for your goals in life. People won’t stop talking, yes. Whether in front of you or behind your back, we’ll never know. But if you’ll learn to choose which kind of criticisms and words of encouragement you’ll just listen to, then I’m sure your insecurities would dissipate one by one. It’s not that it’s bad to hear destructive comments, because you’ll be hearing lots and lots of it every single day. The bad thing is that sometimes, we let destructive criticisms get into our system, so the tendency would be to aspire something or someone we are not. Remember, in order for others to appreciate your whole being, you must learn to accept and love yourself first.
