When I first started blogging, curvy bloggers were few and far between. There were a handful of Asian bloggers that dominated the interwebs. Seeing curvy Asian bloggers paving the way has always been rare.
I felt like diversity in the blog world was little to none. The only non-white Asian bloggers were Aimee Song, Chriselle Lim and Wendy Nguyen. I loved seeing how they styled crisp linen shirts and trousers. Alas, I felt a bit jaded because all of the big name representation were fashion focussed and dainty. They all had gorgeous high fashion style, but nothing that I could find inspiration from.

We drove to #norcia in search of the best cured meats. Happy to report, the #prosciutto was 👌and the drive was gorgeous. _______________________________________________ The devastating effects of last year’s earthquake are seen all over town. Very few shops open and even the main square had scaffolding around the church. Glad the #norcineria were open for business. We visited 4 different shops for our meat, cheese and truffle needs. We found truffle chips in one. This panino for lunch at another. Sampled some salami and sat in the sun at a cute corner stop and bought 200g of the best prosciutto I’ve ever had for the drive back at Norcia Food. Also loaded up on local truffle products. Happy to support the locals while getting our #🐷 🍄🧀#🇮🇹 fix. We hope to come back one day when the town is rebuilt again. _______________________________________________ #chubbyeatsItaly #chubbyeatsUmbria . . . . . . . . . . #panino #eater #eatfamous #foodporn #foodgasm #foodilysm #gastronogram #lovefood #beautifulcuisines #sandwich #getinmybelly #foodporn #foodstagram #lovefood #italianfood #italianeats #sonyrx100v #goodeats #lunch #foodgram #lefooding #delish #localeats
