Phoenix Night- Body Positivity- Embracing The Skin We Live In

Body Positivity – Embracing The Skin We Live In- Tuesday 18th May 7.30PM

Hayley McLean is a Devon mum of 3 children and author of the multi-award-winning blog, Sparkles & Stretchmarks. Hayley blogs about life as a home-schooling mum, gender stereotypes within society, as well as sharing open, honest and realistic accounts of her own lived mental health and life experiences. 

Hayley is a huge advocate for the #BodyPositive movement and regularly writes about her experience, whilst also encouraging others to love and accept themselves. Hayley also talks to a lot of groups, charities and social media channels about her experience with Body Positivity. One of her blog entries, ‘Why can’t my son be a princess at Disneyland?’ was featured on ITV news and started an important conversation about outdated views regarding gender. 

In her talk at Recovery Devon’s Phoenix Night, Hayley will chat to us about her lived experiences of body shaming and societal beauty standards, her journey toward body acceptance and shame-free living, and the Body Positivity movement itself as well as how we can all start to accept, respect and embrace the skin we live in. 

This talk will be offered through an online platform. Tickets are free and booking is essential. You can book tickets through this link- Book Tickets
