    Tanesha Awasthi

    Plus-Size Style Blogger

    Like many influencers, Tanesha started by just having a passion for something and deciding to give it a go. Her current gig is a bit of a departure from where she started, though, showing how important it can be to allow yourself permission to follow what ignites your soul.

     

    In an interview with Hey Mama, she talked about starting on a very traditional path. She went to college and got an internship with Johnson and Johnson. She, however, had always dreamed of being in fashion and journalism, as well as psychology. How did she end up combining a lot of these? Read on.

    According to that same interview, she just wasn’t inspired by what she was doing, and it was a huge source of frustration for the future influencer. At the urging of her husband, she began blogging as a hobby to satisfy that creative itch.

    She claims in that interview that it only took less than half a year to get on the radar and end up in some really cool places, including a trip to fashion week! She stresses, however, that it’s important to stick with it and be consistent. Let’s face it: a story like this is pretty atypical! Her blog’s popularity has gotten her that interview mentioned above, a feature on the Tempest, and an invitation to share some tips with Cosmo, among many others. Her wiki page credits her with also winning a number of awards for her blog, as well as being a speaker who promotes a message of body positivity.

    Tanesha has mentioned a few times not liking the label of plus-size blogger, and she refuses to limit herself, fashion-wise with the label either. She believes in having fun with fashion, first and foremost, even if it means not sticking to the conventional rules of what not to wear at certain sizes.

    She also clearly believes in constantly pushing oneself and expanding one’s horizons, because her blog has gone from being just a way to show off her favorite clothes to so much more. She started by offering style tutorials. Today, she talks that as well as motherhood, saving money on the clothing budget, dealing with cyberbullying, family-friendly Halloween movies, why apple cider vinegar is a must, and more. She even has a playlist section and a unique space where readers can send in their own anonymous writing.
