Hi and welcome to The Plus Size of Life, a Leeds based UK Plus Size fashion, beauty and lifestyle blog written and created by me, Emma Ellis.
I’m plus size and mostly wear a UK 18. I’m a happy and confident 27 year old, living near Leeds in West Yorkshire. I’m happily married and a mummy to one little monster 🙂
I’ve always loved fashion and beauty. I grew up feeling like I didn’t deserve to wear nice clothes or use make up, mainly because I was Plus Size. As I got older I realised that this was stupid, and I wanted to create this blog to share my passion for beautiful clothes and amazing make up!
The Plus Size of Life started in October 2014, as a way to help myself to love the skin I’m in and stop worrying about how others see me. I found other bloggers online, amazing and inspirational women wearing what they wanted and not caring which in turn inspired me to try this! All though I have always blogged part time, I am managing to get creative more and more recently and I am finding myself wanting to really make The Plus Size of Life succeed.
I am still experimenting with fashion, trying more bold prints and colours, exploring and finding my own sense of style. I adore alternative and indie fashion as well as dressing up in a beautiful dress with heels for a night out. I’m still trying to find my casual side, but it’s slowly getting there!
Here’s some random info about me:
- I love Morrissey so much that I have his name tattooed on my left arm

- My favourite quote is “If your hair is wrong, your whole life is wrong” – who else but MOZZA
