Mayra de WildeHello there,

My name is Mayra Louise and this is my personal blog. I’m a freelance journalist and (plus size) model. After years of falling in and out of love with my own body, I finally came to the understanding that happy is not a dress size. That’s why I started THE PUBLISIZED.

This blog is built on a healthy dose of body positivity. Women come in all shapes and sizes and this should be celebrated. Unfortunately diversity isn’t the standard when it comes to the media and fashion world. Don’t get me wrong: I looooovvve fashion. It just needs a bit more volume. Hips don’t lie, you know?

With THE PUBLISIZED I want to contribute to more diversity in an honest and real way. How? Through sharing stories, news and fashion with a focus on curves. I will not tell you how to dress, think or act. The only thing I will say, is this: just be you.

Why? It’s quite simple, love: you are the new black.

I hope you enjoy my blog. If you have any questions or would like to share something, don’t hesitate to reach out.  I’d love to hear from you!
