Unfortunately my weekend away was cut short as I fell ill on Saturday night! Oh well, at least I tried to relax. So after sleeping away until mid-afternoon today, I hopped online to catch up on the latest happenings within the plus size world. I must say there was a good amount of news to catch up on!

The following is definitely great and exciting news for the UK plus size community. We've all heard, and seen on TV, music companies searching for talented candidates to create a boy band, or girl band. Well there's a search going on in the UK right now to create a girl band, though this search has a twist! The organizers are looking to create the UK's biggest girl band, literally! The talented girls they are searching for need to be at least a size 16!

This is a great and commendable initiative, that I hope flourishes. So who is behind this? It's the great team at the online magazine, 'Just as Beautiful', who say they have been overwhelmed by the number of plus size women who have already applied for this opportunity. I can't wait to hear further developments on this story! In the meantime read more at Herts 24 and also at Just as Beautiful.

As Liria Mersini reports this week at, it's great to see curvy women in Hollywood winning Golden Globes! This year we see America Ferrera from Ugly Betty, and Jennifer Hudson from Dreamgirls winning awards!

Okay, so many of you might say that these ladies are far from curvy, and indeed I do agree. However you have to give it up to the people in Hollywood for taking baby steps. These ladies have more meat than bones, and we're happy they're still getting the recognition they deserve! Well done to America Ferrera and Jennifer Hudson for winning Golden Globes this year, and for having impeccable fashion sense.

As I'm sure many of you have already heard, retired catwalk star Tyra Banks, hosted a contest for plus size beauties yesterday during her talk show. America's Next Top Model host has said that "You do not have to be super stick skinny in order to model." The voluptuous beauties who entered this contest, strutted their stuff yesterday on the TYRA show, fighting for the chance to show off their bodies and be named the winner! Among the judges of the contest, present were Mia Tyler, Josh Morrow and Ruben Studdard.

The first Top Plus-Size Model winner was Marguerite Brown, who weighs 218 pounds! Besides having the honor of being the first plus size woman to be crowned Top Plus-Size Model on the TYRA show, Marguerite won a photo spread opportunity with the new Bombshell magazine, as well as a $1,000 shopping spree and a one-year contract with top modelling agency Wilhelmina Models.

Well done Marguerite! You truly deserve your new title. And an even bigger well done to Tyra Banks who is showing her support to plus size models and full figured women worldwide, proving to us all, once again, that big is indeed beautiful and worthy of being on the front covers of magazines!
