What is a Bosslady? Well according to Urban Dictionary, it is “a woman in control, taking charge of her own circumstances in work & life. Someone who knows her worth and won’t accept anything less. She is empowering and inspiring to those around her. She kicks ass!” I am going to meet a different woman every month to discuss and ask them the same questions. My goal is to show that we can all be a Bosslady no matter our appearances or our backgrounds.
This month our Bosslady is the Youtuber Noémie Curvy Vibes. This 24 year old, plus-size model started to get noticed a year ago from a video that was watched 242,776 times. In this video she tells the story about how many men used to see her in secret because of her curves and how that affected her. Her Youtube Channel is about sharing make-up tutorials and girl talk. Noémie is the kind of girl we all want in our squad so it is not surprising that she has more than 26,000 followers on youtube. Keep an eye on her on Instagram I feel like she might be hiding of few surprises for us this year.

How would you describe your style?
I don’t know how to describe my style because it changes all the time upon my mood or what I am doing… However, I love streetwear and it definitely influences my style. I am obsessed with sneakers !
Who are your style muses?
My style muse is Gabi Fresh, her style is always on point and I wouldn’t mind sharing her wardrobe. I am trying not to copy anyone but she is really inspiring. Otherwise, I am just happy to try new things so I dress depending on how I feel.
What’s your favourite item in your wardrobe?
Tricky question! I would say my Fashion Nova jeans. They are awesome and they always embrace my curves more than any other jeans. It’s crazy but I love them so much.
What are the 3 items you can’t leave home without?
A pair of sneakers, a backpack and some mascara, because well, you never know….
What are your favorite brands?
Fashion Nova, ASOS and Forever 21, not a week goes by without me buying something online. My bank account doesn’t approve !

Tell us your journey of self-love?
It all happened at the end of a long-lasting and unhealthy relationship. It was a really complicated time for me and my self-confidence was ruined. At some point I had enough of being constantly at war with myself and to let other people’s opinions affect me. When I realised the power of positive thinking everything changed, and that’s when I actually started to love myself.
When do you feel the most confident? and/or What do you do to feel confident?
When I am feeling down I wear my best outfits, it gives me a little boost. My outfits help me express myself, they give me confidence, make me feel attractive and sometimes they make me push boundaries. It’s the best therapy.
Do you dress to cover any part of your body or to show off parts of your body ?
I have nothing to hide so I would definitely show off parts of my body. I love my legs, my hips and my butt so whatever I wear I make sure they look good.
What is the thing you’re tired of people asking you?
I have had enough of people putting into question how I « really » feel about my body. Lately I have been going back to the gym and had people asking me : « why do you go to the gym if you really like your body ? ». Well probably because loving my plus-sized body doesn’t mean that I don’t want to be healthy. It’s so frustrating still having to answer that kind of question.

What does it mean to you to be a Bosslady ?
A Bosslady is a woman who takes control of her own life and take responsibility for her choices and decisions. She inspires people and lifts them up, she believes in total equality. Whatever her projects, she works hard to achieve her goals like bosses do. She is not afraid to leave her confort zone when required.
What are you most proud of ?
In hindsight, I would say the distance I have come so far. I used to refrain myself from doing so many things because of my body. I am proud of the woman that I have become. I am happy and that is my best achievement.
Who are your biggest role models ?
My mom without a doubt, she is the BEST !
What are your ambitions for 2018?
A Bosslady knows when to keep a secret 😉
