It’s wedding season and the time of year that I reflect on my big day and how it all started. Yes, it’s been a while since I’ve gotten engaged and experienced all the excitement and fear that accompanied it, like 14 years ago, but I still remember vividly all the feelings that surrounded me and the sweating that soon followed.
My engagement picture with my love!
I’ve partnered with Simply Stylist and Dove to talk about an amazing moment that made me sweat. It was the moment that I realized that I was finally loved. As plus size women, we hear so often that we aren’t pretty enough or that we need to lose this amount of weight to find someone. But we don’t, we CAN find love and there are people who love us just the way we are. And when we find them and experience that magical moment of their love being professed to us, there’s nothing better!

Dove has been behind some amazing campaigns to help shift the body shaming mindset, including their Real Body campaign. So of course I jumped at the chance to get on board with their Amazing Moments campaign. It’s all about embracing those special moments and realizing that sometimes the moments that make us sweat are the most amazing moments of all.
Sweating happens to all of us and I must say, always during the most inopportune times, like when you are getting proposed to. What better way to ease your nerves and make you feel comfortable during that first hug as an engaged couple than with Dove Clinical Protection. It offers undeniable wetness protection and has ¼ moisturizers to care for skin.
Seeing others getting engaged and experiencing that epic moment of love still gives me the warm and fuzzy feeling. I’m so excited to share the following clip of the magical moment for a fellow bride to be. In the new Amazing Moments campaign by Dove, the brand puts its Clinical Protection Antiperspirant to the test during a real woman’s surprise proposal to the love of her life.
