Hello lovely ladies,
I have finally found some time to write about the fabulous weekend I had in London.
My day started very early, I took the train from Banbury to London Marylebone (after driving for 20 mins) and I got to London by 9.15am. Then I travel all the way to Hackney where I met 'big sight' with the amazing Velvet D'Amour who is also the CEO, photographer and creative mind behind the fantastic magazine Volup2 check it out if you haven't seen it before because it's pretty awesome.
I can't tell you much more right now but make sure don't miss the next Volup2 issue due in February the 14th. I am not modelling in it but my little online shop missdifusa.com will be present.

Spending my day with Velvet was an amazing experience, I am a fan of hers so at first I was a bit intimidated but I can say now she is a lovely woman, very generous and kind and overalls very funny!
We were both attending the Miss Plus Size International and Plus size awards gala that evening so Velvet suggested I came with her in her taxi (I felt like VIP haha).
We arrived on time to the beautiful venue and start seeing some familiar faces.
There was a red carpet and I had my picture taken (I am waiting to get that) and then the champagne reception started, there I got to network with other bloggers, models, etc

Regarding the event and its organisation, it was well organised even though we have to wait for ages for our meal and between courses and the results of the awards weren't the ones I expected. I think it's always positive to get together and celebrate our beautiful bodies.
I hope you enjoy the pics.
