Hello! The name’s Steph and I’m a 20-something plus size style blogger & fat positivity advocate from London with a penchant for graphic novels, cheesecake, Jason Momoa & Game of Thrones.
Nerd About Town is a hub for all things style and tidbits of inspiration. Why the name Nerd About Town you ask? Well I decided to put a spin on the classic Girl About Town phrase and I thought, as I am a bit of a nerd (comics, gadgets, sci-fi are my vices), the name would suit perfectly. I started the blog in 2009 as a beauty blog, however fashion has always been my first love. My lack of confidence and self-esteem, tied with the lack of plus size clothing available stunted my desire to introduce a personal style section, however in January of 2013 after battling my low confidence, I decided to take the plunge and incorporate my style into the blog!
Nerd About Town serves as a personal space for me to share my style, rave about some beauty & skin bits, and to talk about issues important to me such as body confidence, mental health, loving yourself and being the best person you can be. I hope that my blog can serve as an inspiration to many and to help teach others to be happy and confident in how you look, to wear whatever you want and feel amazing and to just go on living your best life. I currently participate in panel discussions surrounding body image and fat positivity, including the Youth Parliament Select Committee on body image, The Africa Utopia Festival at the Southbank Centre and the Labour Women’s Conference in Brighton. I have also written for The Pool, LAPP The Brand and ELLE Magazine.
