Meet Olga Gonzalez-Ramos

Model, editor, writer, mother, wife, actress, salsa dancer, motivational speaker, and gardening guru; meet your modern day super woman, Olga Gonzalez-Ramos.

Born in Jersey City, New Jersey, this only child was an avid book reader. She even started a “Dear Diary” journal at the age of eight. This started her love affair with writing.

Today she is an editor of Daily Venus Diva, the Plus Size Lifestyle Magazine, Olga writes on a variety of topics, including the “Ask Olga” column. Have a life problem? She’s here to give you advice.

With her job at Daily Venus Diva she wanted to “create a haven and space for plus-size women displaced in a world bombarded with unrealistic expectations of what women are suppose to look like.” Her self-professed mission has been “to remove blinding aspects of full figure girls who believe they are predisposed towards a unhealthy lifestyle by creating a positive outlook and agenda on being plus-size.”

Olga started her blooming modeling career a little later than most models, but that hasn’t stopped her. She’s been featured in Marie Claire, All You Magazine, Figure and BUST to name a few. And she has many projects in the works. I look forward to seeing what she accomplishes in the future.

Crystal Renn in Chanel Ad

I came across this Chanel ad, of the beautiful Crystal Renn, on the über fab Madison Plus blog. This ad, according to The Cut, is being used for a store reopening on Spring Street in New York. While many question whether Renn is still considered a plus-size model, The Cut is questioning why they decided to crop out her body. It’s a valid point, being that Jean Paul Gaultier ad’s included her entire body in his fall campaign.

What do you think?

Is this a big deal or are some making a big deal out of nothing?

Inspiration & Beauty

I just wanted to take a second and say thank you to the fearless and confident women out there, who don’t care what society thinks of their size.

The models who started it all.

Those who could care less if you call them curvy, thick, chubby, fat, or plus-size; but rather see it as a compliment.

The women who know that the inside is just as important as the outside.

You who celebrate the beauty of your body every day.

You inspire me.

True Beauty: Emme

In 1994, People Magazine named model Emme, one of their ‘Most Beautiful People.”
Looking forward, she says, “to the day when we don’t put people down because of their size,” Emme sometimes lectures at high schools near her Leonia, N.J., home. Her message: “Don’t kill yourself trying to change your body. Change the way you think about your body.”-People Magazine
