Welcome to FullBodiedBella!

My name is Bella. 

I’m a 22-year-old Marketing Management graduate whose personality type is ENTJ/ENFJ. I’ve been working and been based in Dubai for a year now. I procrastinate mostly by reading, watching and constantly learning everyday life things. But between you and me, I just enjoy making endless list of things and making myself believe I accomplished something that day. I’m sorry, my Virgo brothers and sisters, but #TruthHurts.

I can say I’m generally sweet and polite, maybe witty and a smarty pants too sometimes but I can also be assertive, bitchy and definitely not the type of woman you should mess with, *wink.

Oh, and my name either means a beautiful altar or an answered prayer 🙂 Thanks, mom. It is is a beautiful name, so says my boyfriend.

Life/Adulting has been more frustrating than ever, but let me see what I can do with it.


Why “Full-bodied Bella”?

I started blogging since Feb/March of 2015 as a form of therapy after a bad breakup. That blog was just where I would dump some very personal and melancholic bits and pieces about myself; my escape from anything not post-worthy in most social media accounts. It is where I had been really honest about myself. I greatly enjoyed it despite not having an audience and not endorsing it to my friends. It was like a dirty little secret that I got fond of. It was a writing project — a blogging promise to document my life; a gift to myself if I ever saw her as a stranger in a street, a coffee shop or in a dark alleyway whatever.

This time, Full-Bodied Bella will cover the next chapter of my life. A, hopefully, more adult version of the stories I used to tell you. It will be a blog about my struggles, triumphs, tips and tricks about how to navigate life big and proud as a full-bodied girl. I’ll let you in on my secrets, the sad pieces and the happy ones, and we hopefully come out of this journey, together and strong. My goal is to help you live your life without any doubts, without anything holding you back from just being happy, or just fucking living it.

My promise? Still the rawest, purest, realest things about me.

Cheers, and read on! *clink
