Practising body positivity is hard af. Little Mix and Fifth Harmony make it look easy. But that’s not quite the case, is it?
Earlier this month we posted some things you can do to make you feel like an all-round body posi goddess. From ditching the scales to writing down what you like about your body, our tips are good starting point, but we understand that being confident with the way you look can still be tough.
Luckily, British model, Charli Howard, is on hand to help. Charli has a brand new book out that features some important lessons in love and self-acceptable. She’s a body posi queen and after hearing about her latest read you’ll want to buy ‘Misfit’ ASAP.

You may already know Charli from her amazing All Woman Project? Or perhaps you recognise her from the scalding letter she sent her ex modelling agency over unrealistic beauty ideals? Either way, she a fully fledged body activist and ‘Misfit’ is an amazing book.
From Charli’s battles with bulimia and anxiety to her obsession with losing weight, ‘Misfit’ discusses a wide range of hard-hitting topics. It’s super emotional but has a very important message; being thin doesn’t result in happiness.
You can watch Charli read an extract of ‘Misfit’ in the video below.
Like the sound of it? Of course you do!
We’ve decided to spread the body cheer by compiling 17 body posi posts we found on Tumblr. All of these posts will make you feel amazing about the way you look – print them out, stick them to your wall and embrace the skin you’re in.
You should also pick up a copy of ‘Misfit’ too. We 100% believe it’s a book that every teenager should own.

Start reading ‘Misfit’ by Charli Howard…
I am not normal.
From the ages of four to six, I thought I was a dog. A
German shepherd, to be precise, though I could also be a
Dalmatian, depending on my mood. The dogs I grew up
with were spoiled and loved, and played around all day, so
that’s what I decided I wanted to become.
