Curve Embracer – Part Two

Danimezza Jeans West Curvy Denim Jeans Stephanie Sister-14

I'm so glad that I decided to follow my instincts because you guys loved the last post that featured my sister Stephanie wearing Jeanswest. I got so many emails and comments from readers who've never commented before because they felt like I was listening to their needs too. These posts wont happen as often as I'd like due to Stephanie living in Tasmania but when she does come to visit I'm sure I can twist her arm to pose for some photos. These are the exact same Jeanswest "Curve Embracer" ... [ Discover More ]

Curve Embracer

Danimezza Jeans West Curvy Denim Jeans Stephanie Sister-3

This is my little sister Stephanie, although it seems a bit redundant to call her that now she's a fully functioning and independent adult... but I'm her big sister so I guess I can call her what ever I like! We've grown really close over the past few years, it's really nice. Before we just kind of swung around in our own orbits, occasionally colliding, often resulting in tears. Not only have we become closer on a personal level but she's also been learning more about what I do for work. So ... [ Discover More ]

ASOS Curve Wide Fit Shoes

shoes

I'm pretty sure everyone in my town just heard me shriek with joy, car alarms and dogs are going off like crazy. The reason I was so excited was because I ordered shoes online and they fit. Kk, to most people that's not a huge deal but for me it was monumental, a complete and utter game changer! Now I know I can buy wide fitting shoes online from overseas but it comes at a huge cost for shipping alone and then there is the high probability that the sizing is wrong. I know a lot of my ...

GLAMGLOW®

Tarazz Sephora Glam Glow Mud Blogger Review Super Youth Mud-4

I'm so hot. Let's just take a second to soak up all my hotness. Ok, you're done? Already? Well I guess I should explain why I have all this muck on my face. For the past eight weeks I've been trialling GLAMGLOW® SuperMud™. I'd seen plenty of reviews online but they all seemed to be "First Time Experience" posts and videos, a reaction from the immediate results. They all glowed, they all raved and they all said it was worth the money. I wasn't convinced. I've tried beautiful masks, high end, ... [ Discover More ]

How I Curl My Hair

curls

Those who have followed me for awhile know I'm a teeny tiny bit vain about my hair. I've learnt over the years that it always looks best when I embrace it's natural state, if I try to make it be other than it is, it fights back against me. I was obsessed with straightening my hair for a couple of years then I suddenly realised that I'm not a slick and straight kind of girl. I'm a messy, curly wurly girl and that's just as sexy. My hair has a lot of volume but these days I'm actually trying to ... [ Discover More ]

Last week's Aussie Curves theme was Celebrity Copycat and I chose to rip off Taylor Swift's style promising to share my make up tutorial  with you all later in the week. Unfortunately time slipped away due to the SWIM+ launch but here it is all ready to go below. I thought today would be great time to share it with you all seeing as it's Melbourne Cup Day and this soft, dewy retro look would compliment any outfit choice.

How to buy Benefit Cosmetics Products

benefit

I can't remember the exact moment I discovered Benefit Cosmetics but I've been a bonafide BeneBabe for a few years now. I love it's reflective qualities, the lightness of the product on my skin and most importantly, how they do what they say they'll do. I've featured many different items on my blog, included them in how-to videos and I've been sure to share any discount codes I find along the way. I was inspired to write this post as I get asked this question a lot, only yesterday a new haul of ... [ Discover More ]

DIY Brunette to Blonde

Alaska

I was a blonde baby, I got it from my Dad. I'd shake my little sand covered booty all over the Gold Coast beaches when I was a toddler, soaking up the sun and making friends with tourist's kids was what I did best. My family then moved to the Northern Territory where our outdoor lifestyle continued and I was a tall blonde string bean who lived in the pool. Then I got my period, I got boobs and my whole universe changed. I became self conscious and way too concerned about following in the ... [ Discover More ]

Locally Famous

This post was brought to you by MasterCard I'm very lucky to live in a beautiful country, one that's relaxed and filled with sunshine for most of the year. For those who don't know I live an hour out of one of the most famous cities in the world and I try to travel in as often as possible. As much as I love the country I also adore the city life, the fashion, the buildings, the culture and not to mention the dining. The day started off overcast and rainy but by midday the sun came out and a ... [ Discover More ]

Stackhouse Territory

This post was brought to you by MasterCard "Would you and the boys like to come Kayaking with us on Sunday to explore the Manly area?" An email from Sonia greeted me on my return from New York. "Sure" I said. "Of Course" I said, "That would be lovely!". The whole time I'm thinking "What am I going to wear? How am I going to get up that early on a Sunday? Will my ass even fit in a kayak?" Shaking off the jet lag and the doubt I was determined to experience it. My first challenge was ... [ Discover More ]

I know, you're all like... "Hey!! That's not New York!!" and yes you'd be right. I've scheduled this big juicy post in advance so you guys get some outfit photos because no doubt I haven't gotten around to that yet. I do hope you're liking the videos, vines and instagrams though, I'm sure I'm all over that. The weather is hot and humid in NYC leading into summer but I know you guys are freezing your butts off right now so with the help of Lucabella I wanted to show you three ways you could wear ...

I've been thinking a lot about my wardrobe lately and as I get ready to head off to New York, planning outfits and thinking of the types of things I'd like to buy, I realised that I'm slowly curating my wardrobe. Now don't get me wrong, I know wardrobes are meant to be ever evolving (well the fun ones anyway) but as I've learnt more about different brands, manufacturing processes, quality fabrics, unique prints and flattering silhouettes I've been gradually letting the crap pieces fall into the ...

Eye Lash Extensions

eye lash extensions -1

Late yesterday afternoon I nervously headed to one of the local beauty salons to get eye lash extensions applied. If I'm honest I always thought it was a bit silly to pay upward of $100 every 2-3 weeks just for long lashes but after having what felt like permanent panda eyes during FFFWeek last year I started to reconsider. As much as I liked the look of false lashes (and I have gotten better at applying them) they're time consuming and tedious when you're in a rush. Peeling them off and ... [ Discover More ]

It’s a Girl Thing

A few weeks ago I headed into the city really really early to work out... I'm serious. I'm not a morning person so I'm still in shock that I actually managed to make the train and stay awake for the entire journey in and then punch out a work out. Did I mention I'd be working out whilst surrounded by polished magazine people and fitness bloggers? You could also say I was the token big girl but that didn't stop me being me and doing my thing... I was looking forward to trying the Pilates ... [ Discover More ]

How to Take a Pretty Licence Photo

Licence photos aren't meant to be flattering but that doesn't mean you shouldn't at least try. I renew mine every year mostly because I like that I have the opportunity to take a new photo. As I sat and thought about how I could make "Danimezza's Drivers Licence of 2013" super awesome it also dawned on me that other people might give a crap about this sort of thing too so I decided to share my tips... enjoy! Lighting for these photos are always terrible so the best way to combat darkness or ... [ Discover More ]

Lane Bryant – Fashion Style Off

Full Figured Fashion Week is just around the corner and I can't even begin to tell you how jam packed the schedule is despite extra days being added this year. Lane Bryant is hosting an event just for bloggers and stylists during the festivities and I was lucky enough to be chosen to attend. One of the perks was that each attendee received a $200 USD gift card to use in store or a code to use online... and boy did I make that money work! The idea was that each attendee used the gift to ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Sequins

I don't know about you but I window shop online more than I'd like to admit. I'm the kind of person who'll gaze for hours, putting things in my cart only to leave them there abandoned. I never seem to suffer buyers remorse as I've usually agonised over the purchase for weeks. Sometimes a piece is exotic for plus and I know it will sell out straight away so I'll buy it as an "investment". Other times a piece will sing out to me as I scroll down the page and the clouds part and the heavens open ... [ Discover More ]

Nespresso High Coffee

Nespresso Blogger Event High Coffee Mothers Day Appreciation -1

I've mentioned before that I'm not a coffee drinker but on the odd occasion where I've found myself in a cafe for a meeting and surprisingly a raspberry "Spider" isn't a fitting beverage, I've dabbled with lattes and mochas. So when someone lovely from Nespresso (who also happens to be a direct link to George Clooney) invites you to an intimate High Coffee experience for Mother's Day, you go. As I live over an hour out of the city a fancy car was sent to pick me up, I think it suits me don't ... [ Discover More ]

LG Optimus G Giveaway

I was gifted an LG Optimus G Smartphone and given the option to give one away. I was not paid for this post and as usual all thoughts and opinions are my own. Most of the time when I get invited to attend events I have an idea of how it will play out but sometimes I get surprised, this was one of them. LG had invited me to be a guest at an intimate product launch for their brand new phone the Optimus G in The Rocks. It seemed like a perfect excuse to get all dressed up. I had gorgeous new ... [ Discover More ]

Sponsored by Tarazz Earlier this year I placed my very first Tarazz order of Sephora products. After being introduced to the cosmetic powerhouse in New York last year I couldn't wait to get my hands on more goodies, especially at very reasonable prices compared to Australia's overpriced counters. Fragrances, skincare, make up... it's all there. In my last order I bought some high quality lip products and an eye lash applicator. When I showed you a few were keen to see it in action so here ...

It's been so nice outside lately and I haven't been taking advantage of it as I've felt so miserable. I'm changing my habits and trying to shake off the clouds. So today Steve hung out the laundry, Aidan ran about with Charlie and I whipped on my activewear and decided to try something new.

I wont be alone, I have Ash. I'll also have a great big city to explore and one of these beds to curl up in. Surrounded by charger cords, battling the internet, eating skittles and missing home at 2am. This trip will be different from the last, I've grown up a little bit more. I'm a little bit ... [ Discover More ]

Towards the end of last year Australian Owned camera bag designers 3 Annies released a limited edition of 20 Silver "Audrey Lu" Leather Camera Bags and thanks to some timely Christmas money I contacted them in January and asked if they had any left. They had just two left but they wanted to give one to me... I was blown away! Turns out Margo (and her daughter and business partner Rowe) had found me via my Kelly Moore Libby Bag review from a few years ago and was hooked on my blog. I said I ... [ Discover More ]

Sephora Ships to Australia via Tarazz

Towards the end of last year one of my friends who works for Tarazz.com.au told me a little secret... that they would become the platform for shipping Sephora products to Australia! For people in the know, for people who have stepped inside Sephora's glossy doors of awesomeness this was HUGE news. Do you have any idea how hard it was to keep my mouth shut?! I was given a $100 giftcode by Tarazz to buy whatever I liked. It took me THREE MONTHS to decide on what I wanted to order, how insane is ... [ Discover More ]
