Forever New: Curve Review

One of the most consistent questions I get asked by my community is ‘where can I buy formal wear?’ It seems that somewhere along the way retailers forgot that curvy women were also invited to balls, weddings and black tie functions – which normally leaves me at a loss for many options when trying to…

How to brighten up your Winter

We all have our favourite seasons. I find most people love summer – personally, I’m a winter baby. Give me layers and snuggling under blankets and a hot chocolate any day over being hot and sweaty and sun burnt. One of my main winter preferences is the fashion! Growing up I would always prefer a…

Product Review: Chase away the Chafe

As a curvy gal, I’ve had my fair share of uncomfortable moments. Trying to squeeze past people on the bus, trying to comfortably sit in a airline chair, trying to get a drink at a bar when the male bartender is ignoring me, and trying not to die when my inner thighs catch on fire…

This is a blog about hard work.

This is not a blog about weightloss. This is not a blog about dieting. This is not a blog that is magically going to make you fitter, smarter or healthier. Because all of those things take hard work. So if you’re interested; this is a blog about hard work. If you have been following me…

How to have a beach body.

What’s your favourite thing about summer? Mangoes? Camping? Cricket? While I’m partial to any of the above (albeit the latter two are preferred in small doses), mine is the beach! I love the ocean, I love being in the water and lying on the sand. My family spent nearly every holiday break at the beach,…

One Dress : Three Ways

How many dresses do you own? 3? 15? 108? Although I haven’t counted exactly, I can guarantee you that I am leaning towards the latter number. The good news for you is: 108 dress is totally unnecessary and my collection is verging on ridiculous. The bad news for me is: 108 dress is totally unnecessary and…

When to wear a jumpsuit.

Question: When do I wear a jumpsuit? Answer: Always! In my books, it is always the right time for a jumpsuit. Jumpsuits are the power suit of street style; they demand respect. Every woman wants to be the woman ‘in that jumpsuit’. They walk the line between casual and fancy, you can dress them up…

To knit, or not to knit?

If you’re anything like me, then you love everything about winter; the chilly air, the extra night time, the awesome fashion! Winter is the perfect excuse to wear a good blazer, or an awesome pair of distressed jeans, and to find that perfect ankle boot. But for many plus women, winter dressing can be difficult….

20 Ways To Wear: Stripes

Stripes are a wardrobe staple all year round; big stripes, vertical stripes, coloured stripes, striped shoes, stripes with patterns. Unfortunately, as with every trend, stripes seem to be something that plus size women are cautioned against! A stripe going one way will make you look wide, a strip going the other way will make you…

The PLUS side of Shein

People seem to be wired to like fast things; fast food, fast cars, fast internet. But how much do we love fast fashion? For the masses it’s great, think Supre, Ally, Kmart. But what about for us plus size ladies? Many of these ‘fast fashion’ outlets simply don’t cater above a ‘size 14’ (which really…
