I am the creator of She Might Be, an extension from my blog She Might Be Loved and my other job, She Might Be Social. I have gained so much confidence in myself, industry knowledge, an actual career and a bunch of incredible friends throughout my 3+ years of blogging. I’m fluent in sarcasm and I find myself hilarious. I’ve heard others think I’m pretty funny too. I am basically makeup, pretty clothes, glitter, and red hair dye rolled into one.
I will be writing about everything from makeup and Halloween looks, to chronic pain and fashion. I’m a big preacher of using your influence to bring awareness to important issues, sharing your knowledge within a new industry and genuinely just doing the right thing and being a nice human. I may seem young at just 22, but who ever has met me knows I’m a lot older in my head, it’s a blessing and a curse.

Busy little fee

A fat gal in her late 20s who likes to rant about body positive stuff and wear floral dresses. I blog about life as a parent, a wife, a lady with two jobs and a full-time student. On top of this I’m a huge lover of fat fashion and a strong advocate for full size ranges.
I’ve been fat all of my adult life, but became an ardent supporter of style and happiness at every size back in 2015 when I ended my tumultuous relationship with the diet industry once and for all. In my free time (what is ‘free time’?) I hang out with my family, study for my History degree and maintain a pretty fierce compulsive shopping habit. I’m a lover of reality TV, random acts of kindness and butterscotch Angel Delight. If you ever need me, follow the trail of glitter.

I’ve been plus sized all my adult life, I am passionate about body confidence and fierce about fat acceptance. I will be writing (ranting!) here if and when brands let us down, and shouting from the rooftops when they get things right. I’m not a fashion blogger as such, I have my own style and I definitely don’t follow the rules, in fashion or in life. I love makeup, though my skills are not great – hoping to pick up some hints and tips from the beauty babes on She Might Be!
I’m like the mum of the site (definitely old enough to BE the mum!) so do drop me a message with all of your worries and issues and I will do my best to help you. I’m currently training as a life coach and will specialise as a body confidence/self-acceptance counsellor. I’m straight talking, empathetic and very real – what you see is what you get.

I’m a Welsh, 30-something, plus size blogger currently to be found living in Scotland while my other half finishes his PhD up here at Dundee Uni. I love miserable songs, pretty things, strong perfume and good whiskey. After being diagnosed with a chronic pain condition in 2015, my world was turned upside down and blogging has become my way of turning that potential negative into a big positive.

My main passion is for making plus size fashion and beauty accessible and affordable for everyone. I’ll be writing about lots of different areas here on She Might Be, but expect mostly fashion, beauty, outfit posts and easy to do clothing DIYs.

I’m a plus size blogger, fashion photographer, cat lady, wife and general goober. I stand at 5ft 11 and have UK size 10 feet, which leads to a whole host of new challenges as a plus size gal. I’m also vegetarian and I don’t wear any animal products, and I only use cruelty free makeup. I have 3 rescue cats and a rescue dog, plus a beardy long haired husband. I also suffer from chronic headaches and hemiplegic migraines, plus a few other conditions, it’s the spoonie life for me! I adore cats, brightly coloured makeup, purple, leopard print, cats, sunglasses and PokemonGO!

I hail from Birmingham but I’ll always be a Brighton girl at heart! I’ve been a plus size blogger for just over a year now and I’ve been plus size nearly all my adult life. I’m a kooky, geeky, and quirky woman with an eclectic sense of style and fashion, and a lot of love for all things pug! I have a wide range of odd little hobbies, from crochet to making glitter jewellery. You can never have too much glitter in your life.
I will preach body love and confidence to anyone that stands still long enough and I want to bring women up, not tear them down. I will be writing a little about everything from dresses to beauty hacks and mental health. I’m hoping that my writing can bring joy and laughter to as many as possible and hopefully change a few people’s opinions and outlooks.

 

I’m a mermaid obsessed plus size blogger interested in all things fashion, glamour, vintage and repro fashion. I’m really into make up though a bit rubbish still with applying it so am forever trying to perfect the ultimate brow. Basically I’m wanting to give achieve Ursula glamour with Ariel hair. I’ve recently learned that there are no rules in fashion, you like it? Whack it on. Worried about your legs? So what? Wear it! This year I’m focusing on learning to love my thighs, after all they’re bring me one fin closer to being a mermaid. This year I’m ditching my ‘one day’ jeans, embracing being happy with who I am and where I am in 2017, who is with me?

A self confessed glamour addict with a penchant for mixing the classics with the contemporary. I live in a beautiful old cottage in a tiny village in the Midlands with my husband Pete, our little gremlin of a Sphinx cat Cleo, our adorable English Bulldog baby Betty and my ever expanding wardrobe.
I have been plus size my whole life and I truly believe that style has no size. Being fat makes you no less beautiful than someone who is a size zero. Your appearance is your business and no-one else’s, so wear what you want, do your makeup and hair how you like it and never let anyone shame for for it. Don’t obsess over your size, obsess over your happiness – they are not the same thing. I’m going to be sharing my passions with you on SMB, with makeup and hair tutorials and style posts but you may find me writing about a myriad of other things too!

A 30-something blogger from Cambridgeshire, I love history, stories and vintage fashion. Hey, I wonder if they’re related?
I’m passionate about body confidence, loving the skin you’re in, and wearing whatever the hell you want, and that’s just one of the reasons why I’m so proud to be part of She Might Be. I spent a long time on a perpetual diet, trying to be the same as everyone else, comparing the way I looked with how my friends looked, and finding myself wanting. Then, I met my husband (or, as he’s known on my blog, The Boy), who encouraged me to embrace the things I love, never mind what anyone else thought. I did, and I’ve never looked back – I now dress in a 40s or 50s inspired outfit everyday and my motto is “Does this look a bit much? No? Then I’d better go and change”.
He also introduced me to another of my loves – Doctor Who – and we now live in a lovely old house with various TARDISes (TARDISi?) dotted around the house and our cat, Oswin. Yes, she’s named after a dalek.

A fashion blogger, Art History Grad, Cake Lover and Mini Schnauzer adorer. I live in the current City of Culture, Hull with my husband, my dog Oscar and cat Marmite.
I’ve always been a bit of an amazon woman and have recently become fascinated with the portrayal of plus size women throughout history. Hence my series on She Might Be. I’m interested in exploring previous artefacts, relics and of course beautiful paintings to understand different perceptions of the plus size body throughout different periods in time. In my spare time you’ll find me lost in a gallery, taking a tour of a museum or wandering a country home.
I’m also a huge traveller, I’ve been to Russia, Italy, all over America, Thailand, Egypt and much more. I’m always on the lookout for my next getaway where I can immerse myself in the culture of another place.

Office Working, Rose drinking, super fat girl currently living in Birmingham. I started blogging because I wanted to show people above a size 26 that they have clothing options and can wear what they want. I’m passionate about all bodies being good ones and will defend the right for anyone to live in the body they want. I believe that as you are the only person who has to live in your body, you are the only one that gets a say in how it looks.

I love plus size fashion, fat activism, people who unapologetically take up space and blue slush puppies – quite a mix right?. I attend all manner of plus size events, so if you see me at one please say hi! I’m a fan of bright clothing, statement necklaces and generally wearing what society says we shouldn’t. Always happy to chat and give advice about living in a fat body, so come say hey!

Michelle Chantelle Hopewell
I’m a black British, plus size actress, singer and writer in her late 20s, living and working in London. If I’m not recovering from a laughter induced asthmatic episode, you can find me auditioning and/or shopping for audition clothes because they are a tax deductible and no one can tell me any differently. I am both a reincarnated disco diva (in my mind) and a messy, loud dork (in real life). In no particular order, I am super passionate about theatre, tv and film and music, body confidence, food, racial equality and social justice. 
I’ve been blogging and writing for a while, but its in recent years that I have found my voice. I blog about everything from body confidence, to race, to jobs, to clothes, to food, to adventure and what is inspiring me in whatever season I’m in. I believe in the power of community and shared experiences and what better way to share that than to write it all down?!

I am 32 and I hail from across a lot of ocean in Oz (as in Australia… not where Dorothy hangs out, unfortunately). I can’t walk in high heels as I am the Queen of Clumsiness, but I love wedges or  having bare feet. I have one fiancé, two pairs of pants, three favourite cups, four budgerigars (four of which found  their way to me – I may be the Pied Piper of Parakeets), twelve purple eyeshadows, sixteen tattoos, several scars, a myriad of dresses and skirts, and a whole lotta flabby wobbly jiggly bits that look a lot better in a bikini than I ever thought possible.
I have only very recently realised/discovered/been hit over the head with the fact that my body is not a thing to hate or change or to be ashamed of and that it is, in fact, just a shell that holds my
rockin’, somewhat eccentric, unstoppable-singing-machine, matte lipstick loving soul. I am very much a glass half empty person, but I’m getting better at seeing that what’s in the glass is at least delicious… So there’s that.

I’m a 19 year old disability, lifestyle and beauty blogger as well as an advocate for my rare genetic condition, Marfan Syndrome. I discuss topics relating to disability such as accessibility and ableism whilst also sticking to my lifestyle and beauty roots of blogging, where I began. I’m all about encouraging body confidence within the disabled communities online and learning to love any mobility/medical aids. I spend my time raising awareness of Marfan Syndrome online and through volunteer charity work and recently life changed a lot when I moved from the south to the north! I’m finding my feet up here whilst also exploring fashion more and striving to inform and educate more people about disability.
