The Beyonce Diet

Tinu Streetstyle 15

The title might be slightly misleading as I’m currently munching on a chicken avocado kale salad (so good).

Ever since, I was diagnosed with PCOD last year  I’m always looking for ways to eat better and generally live a healthy lifestyle. If you follow me on Twitter and Instagram, you’ll know I practice Bikram Yoga constantly.

So when I stumbled upon Beyonce’s body at the Met Gala last week. I was wowed. It was all down to her 22 day vegan diet. I was sold. Today was Day 1 of my Vegan diet, and by the first paragraph you can tell I already failed miserably. However, I’m ok with that.

I hate the word diet! I really do. And a life without chicken and seafood (I’m not a big red meat eater) is really no fun. I have nothing against Vegans. My two closest friends are vegans and vegetarians receptively. I currently find myself drawing the short end of the stick when it comes to eating out with them, so I’ve had my fair share of vegan and vegetarian meals. Let’s just say the Beyonce Diet is not for me. I still love her music though.

Orange + Cropped

I once wished this cropped-top style trend would die! But then I thought wait a minute, who exactly says I can’t wear a cropped top. So this top, which is actually a bikini top and this skirt, which I’ve worn to the death has become my favorite combo.

Its September!! Not only is September my birthday month, its also the beginning of Fall. My favorite season. The layers, the boots will all be making a comeback! I can’t wait.

Fatkini

There’s something completely liberating when you decide to accept your body. I first heard about fatkini from Gabi from Gabifresh’s blog and I must admit I wasn’t sold the first time. Partially due to the self loathing I had for my own body. In my head I have the body of a super model in reality not so much. Then I was diagnosed with Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and now I have learned,  there are certain things beyond my control. Thus came the self acceptance.

Confession: this is the first time I’ve actually owned a bikini OR a fatkini if you like. And I want to thank TopShop for not making this high waisted number dowdy and old lady like. This post is dedicated to everyone curvy, skinny, tall, short, pear shaped, apple shaped. What ever you are, love thyself.
