ABOUT

Hiya! I'm Leah and I live in Bexhill, East Sussex. Welcome to my award-nominated blog! I used to be called Just Me, Leah but after a few years I decided that sounded too self-deprecating. I wanted the 'Love Leah' web address but it was taken so I decided on x Love Leah x - Love Leah with a kiss on either side. I mostly write about plus size fashion but you can also expect cruelty-free beauty, opinion pieces and pieces about my life with chronic illness. If you're a reader and you want to get in touch, feel free to catch me on social media Facebook | Twitter | Instagram or scroll down to the contact section below for my email details.
I've always loved fashion, although I dressed like a tomboy right into my 20s as I had no idea what suited me. I really started experimenting with clothes and taking full length photos of myself when I started this blog over 6 years ago. My confidence increased so much as I discovered the joy of good clothes. Confidence needn't be dependent on size. Really. Everyone deserves to feel special. Beauty has no size limit.

Truth time, and this is to weed out people who aren't on my wavelength. I barely make any money from this blog. I've been doing this 6 years and if I'd been doing it for money all along I'd be crying into my laptop right now. But there comes a certain point where doing everything for free really grates. I'm willing to forfeit all brand involvement unless my needs are met. There seems to be a perception that blogging isn't real work so bloggers can do everything for free, or conversely all bloggers are loaded and can afford to do everything for free. Either way, there are a lot of people expecting bloggers to do them a solid in exchange for....well, nothing. If people want to pay my rates (see below) I'm happy to work with them, but otherwise I'll be bumbling along at my own pace and writing about my life, like I used to before I was obsessed by blogging and still had a life. 😝 Here are my absolute non-negotiables and if you email me about them I wish you a thousand years of tinny lift-muzak versions of Barry Manilow songs.
