My name is Buhle Buthelezi
I am Bold and Beautiful and I am a size 38.
I was never that ‘fat child” but neither have I ever been described as skinny.
I started to put on weight after varsity and having never been weight conscious before I just never took the time to really work on my weight.
After having being a mom, I now realize the importance of being healthy and looking after myself. I love life and I want to live a happy life. A happy life to me means living without limiting myself to society expectations and frowns.
Yes I’m chubby but I’m also Beautiful, Strong, Smart and Loving.
I had lots of fun doing the shoot.
Its initiatives like these that remind us of our own worth. I felt like a true Diva for the day the outfit changes, make up and had two assistants to help me put my looks together. It really was special. I felt like the most Gorgeous Girl in the World. I am not defined by what I look like; I am a mom, wife, sister, daughter and career woman and all those things are what truly define who I am.
I am a proud Chubby Vogue Diva.
