Style Profile: Emmi Snicker

Mode XLusive Style Profile curvy plus size fashion blog Ottawa Montreal Toronto Canada Chantsy Chantal Sarkisian Emmi Snicker 1This is my total style crush, Emmi Snicker of Stockholm. I fell hard for her street style photos when I Googled “plus-size fashion blogger”. That’s how we met! I love this beauty’s style and how she rocks her curves, so I ask her a few questions.

Tell us a little bit about yourself. My name is Emmi Snicker and I’m currently living in the capital of Sweden, Stockholm, with my husband. I’m a 23 year old blogger and organic makeup artist. I also run a small company through my blog, besides my full-time office job. Otherwise I love to travel, watch documentaries and hang out with my family and friends!

What’s your passion for fashion? My interest for fashion and beauty started at an early age – I remember I had a small collection of eye shadows (blue, pink and silver) for school discos in the late 90s. I also loved girl bands, especially their makeup and clothes. Growing up, my mother had her own hair salon where I spent a few hours every day after school. I would wait for her to finish up, while I painted and played with hair accessories and looked through her look books. Since then, my interest in fashion and beauty has developed a lot. I hope to find a full time career in the fashion and beauty industry in the future!

What XLusive tip can you share? My style tips for a chic style is to invest in basic clothing – oh, I know it’s so boring and you’ve heard this tip a million times before – but you need to build a small base to work with. Once you have your basics, you can then add pieces with that bit of “extra” and voliá, you can now create hundreds of combinations with all your pieces!

Transformation: my frenemy the scale

  

This is me every morning now. 

Don’t get obsessed with your weight, it’s just a number, it doesn’t mean anything. It’s all about how your clothes fit, and how you feel (I call BS on this).

I hate that I have made this an everyday routine, but truth be told… it’s what keeps me in check. Lately it’s also been torture… I keep teetering between 185 and 187 pounds. I need to lose another 10 pounds to reach my goal. The last 10 pounds seems to be impossible. Although I have noticed my body shape looks different, and I am a smaller size now than I was three months ago, not seeing any numbers go down can become discouraging.

It’s almost like I’ve lost my drive, and have found a new comfort zone. It’s the same comfort zone I found at a higher weight. I keep telling myself I need to amp up my workouts and be careful with what I’m eating. I keep treating myself and congratulating myself on my efforts thus far. I deserve a reward right? 

I am terrified of gaining the weight back and feeling like a failure. All that effort and all the sacrifices I made… Can you imagine? It’s quite common for people to gain back their weight, but my ultimate goal is to keep it off, and not necessarily keep losing. That’s a challenge on its own.

I’ve been feeling a little bit down lately, and I feel like I need to get this off my chest. Thank you to my friends who keep encouraging me.
