Welcome to BeauTIFFully Me Blog! I’m Tiffany Smith, a full-figured North Carolina-based fashionista dedicated to empowering women of all sizes to live their best lives. A good friend of mine jokingly called me beautiFULL, and the name grew from there! I actually, think it’s pretty spot on. When you visit my site, prepare to be FULLy empowered, FULLy celebrated and FULLy appreciated for who you are. I started my brand organically by posting my budget-friendly tips on fashion and sharing my “OOTD: Outfits Of The Day" via Instagram in 2012. Since then, I’ve added my own website, a Tumblr, a Facebook fan page, and a YouTube channel.
As a wife and mother of two, I truly feel that like me, other women wear so many hats. So, why not look fabulous while doing so? My goal as a plus-sized fashion blogger to make my readers feel confident at all stages in their life journeys. There’s no need to be unhappy where you are while you work to get where you are going. Embrace each step while trusting the process. My love of fashion goes far beyond simply looking great outwardly.
I truly believe that if you look good, you’ll feel good too; and the amazing feeling that comes from self-love and confidence is contagious. There is an inevitable domino effect when women realize what works for them and begin to embrace their own personal standards of beauty. People often make assumptions about plus-sized women and what they feel is “acceptable” fashion for them. But as you will learn, I like to make my own rules, wear what makes ME feel good, while staying on trend and within budget. I encourage my readers and followers to do the same.
Aside from fashion, I am also an advocate for living a healthy lifestyle. I’m currently documenting my weight loss journey and I would love to have my readers along for the ride. To date, I’ve lost around 80lbs and I am excited about using my platform to encourage other women. At present, I currently wear a size 16 bottom, XL top, and a size 11 in shoes. No matter your size, I’m prepared to help you rock whatcha got at any age and stage. We’re in this together!
I’m so excited about all that’s in store for my readers! 2017 was an amazing year for my brand and I can’t wait to take each of you with me this year. Please be sure to follow me on all social media channels to stay connected and in the know. Remember, this is the only life we have; so love, laugh and live it to the FULLest.
Until Next Time…
