There’s a new movie available on Apple iTunes, Amazon and VOD this week that you should definitely check out. From Tricoast, Love on the Run stars (yes, STARS) plus size actress by the name of Jen Ponton.
I was able to view the movie and it was cool to see a “love story” with a plus size woman in the lead. Now, I won’t give away all the details…you’re gonna have to watch it for yourself BUT there’s definitely a few twists and turns in the plot.
Wouldn’t it be nice to see more curves in Hollywood?! Jen definitely thinks so. Can’t wait to see more of her in the future.

Would you freak out if I said “Can you believe the first week in January is already over?” HA! I promise I won’t get too annoying today but seriously…it’ll be February before you know it! Then March cough coughMarch 4th to be exact cough my birthday cough cough.
