You probably already saw the teasers I shared on Facebook and Instagram since January 17. In case you didn’t know… I have been taunting the community of the blog with a new, upcoming, very exciting project. Continue reading “The Project With No Name…”
In the wake of the #MeToo movement, feminists all around the globe raised their voices against rape culture. (It was clearly needed.) With the “popularization” of feminism that followed, are we losing one of the essential components of the advocacy of women’s rights? Continue reading “Fat-Phobia: The Forgotten Feminist Issue.”

On the Victoria / Patriots Day long weekend (May 18-20), Montreal was in Pouzza Fest mode! Over 175 bands from all over Canada and the US, but also bands from the UK, Belgium, Austria, Germany, Northern Ireland and Sweden gathered downtown Montreal for a weekend of punk – and ska, and punk rock, and more! – music.

Big Fit Girl: Embrace The Body You Have by Louise Green – a fellow Canadian who is also an accomplished plus-size athlete, trainer, and entrepreneur – was launched on March 18! The book is now available in bookstores and on Amazon (Kindle & Paperback).
At this time last year, Louise approached me to know my thoughts on hiking as a way to unleash my inner athlete.
The testimony I provided her on the topic has survived the editing process and is now officially part of the “Big Fit Girl” book !
Among others who share their stories on being big fit girls, you will find Whitney Way Thore, from TLC’s “My Big Fat Fabulous Life”.
So far, Louise & her book received some well-deserved visibility in Canada and the US and all over the web. Hopefully, this book will achieve its eye-opening goal and reveal “how the fitness industry fails to meet the needs of plus-size women”. #BigFitGirlMovement
Louise will also visit the UK next May, for fans from the other side of the pond!
Well 2016 has been a very exciting year, to say the least! Continue reading “Happy Holidays !”
