About this trip

Join me in the City of Angels for a long weekend filled with fun and enriching activities that focus on both Self-Love and Community Love!


We'll be partnering with Hosteling International Santa Monica for their Great Hostel Give Back program. We will all stay in a private shared dorm for a cute and cozy slumber party experience. Have you ever stayed in a hostel? It's fun! It's all about the people you meet, so get ready to meet your 9 new best friends! 


We'll volunteer at the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, hear from some of your favorite fat activists at our Sunday Self Love Session and have a photoshoot at Santa Monica Pier! You'll also have some time to explore Hollywood and see the sights.


If you can't attend, but still want to show some love. Please donate to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank

Happy Galentine's Day!
Arrival Day / Date Yourself Night

Today you will check into the hostel and meet your new friends! After, we unpack, decompress and get to know each other better. Then we'll throw on our PJ's because it's a Pajama Party!


We will work together to make a delicious meal and dessert to share with the other hostel guests. After dinner we'll watch a movie, because what's date night without dinner and a movie?

Hi! My name is Annette and I am a fashion stylist and lifestyle blogger. I've visited 18 countries in the last two years, so it's safe to say I've been bitten by the travel bug. I recently planned two weeks in Thailand and loved the country so much I wanted to move there!

Coming into Camp, I didn't really know what to expect as I don't really like to talk about my feelings and am new to the whole body positivity world. I left Camp in love with all these wonderful ladies. I enjoyed hearing about the shared experiences and just being in a safe and loving place for the weekend. Sure, there were a lot of "influencers" there, but that wasn't the main focus of the weekend. I mostly spent time making friends, learning a dance to Lizzo from an amazing plus size dance group, sharing secrets and laughs around the camp fire. I will defintely be signing up again.
I left early due to not feeling the vibe of the event. It felt less like an opportunity to bond with women who've experienced the struggle that comes with being fat and more like just another photo op for plus size IG influencers and those who inspire to be one. Not to say that's a bad thing, but not what I was looking for. Certain parts were great (food was bomb and the opportunity to discuss certain issues as a group were what I was actually there for). And I applaud the creator for the effort put in to the creation of this event. Was just looking for something different that what I got.
Such a great time! Annette is a wonderful organizer and it was so nice to experience this trip!
One of the best weekends of my entire life. The memories and friendships I made during this trip will last me a lifetime and I am forever grateful. Looking forward to next year and the pictures! Lol
