Aussie Curves – Date Night

Aidan insisted on being in this week's photos and I'll be the first to admit that the kid outshone his Mumma in a big way. We had plans to go out to dinner with one of my besties who I've known since high school in the Northern Territory so it seemed like the perfect time to jump back into the challenge. Yeah, sorry about being so absent, lots going on... but anyway, enjoy the photos! Danielle New Look Polka Dot Dress - ASOS Black Stockings - Sonsee Ankle Boots - Target Earrings ...

Hayley Hasselhoff is in this month's issue of Cosmopolitan Australia and I thought she looked kind of amazing... then I realised she was wearing boohoo.com curvy range!! So I thought I'd do a little "Shop The Look" for you all! I personally have a few of these pieces which is why I recognised them. I haven't done a post like this in awhile but I am right now, because I'm excited! Why? Let me break it down for you: There is an international celebrity. In an Australian glossy ...

Aussie Curves – Time Saver

Aussie Curves Danimezza Plus Size Fashion Blogger Outfit Asos Curve Jumper Torrid Jeans Blonde TIME SAVER -7

I'm chronically 15 minutes late, ask anyone who knows me. I never intend to be, I just have trouble prioritising and as an added bonus I feel like I have the capacity to do ALL THE THINGS all at once... it drives Steve up the wall. Time just never seems to be on my side and my day-to-day outfits usually reflect that. It needs to be an effortless, simple outfit to get me out the door on time. For a fancy event I'll usually allocate half a day in order to get ready and arrive in the city on time, ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Sparkle

You're probably wondering "Where the hell is the sparkle?" but bear with me, this year I'm doing sparkles in an understated fashion... sorry, a blurry understated fashion *sigh*. Somedays just aren't my days and this was one of them. It was Steve's birthday so I wanted to look nice for whatever the day had in store for us. As you can tell we were winging it, moving doesn't allow much room in the budget for fun. Turns out an entire afternoon the Apple Store genius bar isn't as awesome as it ... [ Discover More ]

I know "Sparkle" week started today but I'm not feeling entirely sparkly right now. We found out on Thursday night that the owner of the house we've been renting for the past 6+ years has decided to sell the property but needs to do some work on the house before it can be put up for sale so we're out of there. We've got three months to move but I want the whole thing over and done with so we spent the weekend looking at properties and I'll be applying for two tomorrow morning, wish me luck! I ...

Aussie Curves – Hipster

I'm back baby! March and September are my busiest months of the year and the past few weeks kicked my ass with both awesomeness and crap I don't want to talk about just yet. It's pretty poor form when the founder of Aussie Curves can't even manage to pull an outfit post together but you know what, who cares? There are so many inspiring ladies within the challenge now and I've always said you don't have to participate every week, just when you can. I couldn't, I was tapped out and just not ...

On the weekend I was honoured to be inducted into the Kidspot Voices Hall of Fame for blogging. I've been a part of the competition since it's inception many years ago, I even came Top 5 in 2012. A special thanks to the unwavering support, love and nominations from new and loyal readers of my blog. It's so exciting to see fresh faces entering the arena even if I did feel a bit like a dinosaur, because not only was I celebrating the induction but on Monday my blog turned 8 years old. I spent ...

City Chic Outlet Shopping

thumbnail AC Group

On Sunday Jo had organised an Aussie Curves Meet Up Event at the City Chic Factory Outlet in Campbeltown, NSW. Jo and I were on the tail end of a huge weekend (more on that later) but we were still excited to go shopping with Claire, Rachel and Sunny. I've only been there once before and I have to say that going with a group of friends is way better than going alone. Of course I didn't want you to miss out on the fun either so I filmed it all...

I know you're all waiting for outfit photos from the day so here they are in their simplest form. If you see yourself, right click and save away. Post it to Facebook, put it on your blog, print it out and show your grandma... I don't mind but credit would be nice. I think for events from now on I'll just wear jeans and a shirt because I spent so much of my time running around filming and photographing that my look wasn't as polished as I had planned, this photo was taken at the end of the day. ...

Aussie Curves – Campari House, Melbourne

admin

The last six months have been intense personally, along side of that Aussie Curves has exploded into the community I had always dreamed it would be. Everyday hundreds of people apply to join the private facebook group and there are thousands upon thousands of instagrams using the hashtag #AussieCurves to connect and inspire. I was asked over the weekend how I felt about AC and all I could say was... I'm blown away. I always knew that with positive intention and peer support the community would ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Secondhand

Aussie Curves Danimezza Blogger Outfit Fashion Plus Size Blonde Red Harlow Glomesh Wrap Dress SECONDHAND-6

In the name of multitasking I present my second look photographed on the same day... and yes it did involve a quick outfit change in a public park because I'm a risky dare devil like that. I'm also a bit of a cheater, the dress isn't secondhand but the handbag is, that totally counts right? After the epic wardrobe clear out of January 2014 I found myself with no secondhand garments so I went to my ever faithful stash of Glomesh to bring an outfit to life and make the cut. You've got to admit, ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Off The Runway

Aussie Curves Danimezza Blogger Outfit Fashion Plus Size Blonde RUNWAY-6

This week the challenge is to steal a style "Off The Runway" and interpret the look in your own way. Endless possibilities. I discovered the look above by Marissa Webb (Spring 2014) and knew instantly that I could make it work. I already owned a metallic gold skirt and my crisp blouse was begging to be worn. I didn't have a white tie so I added some simple chains. I didn't have super strappy heels but I did have a cute pair of nude t-bars. Basically same-same but different. It was really cool ...

Aussie Curves – Sequins

The weather here at the moment is dreary rainy snuggly overcast stay under the covers kind of weather. The thought of even putting on a bra is revolting but here I am, in the rain shaking my sequin ass. Steve really wasn't having a bar of it today so we snapped a few pics as quickly as possible and then I jumped back in the car. The weather will not hold me back dammit but it did make me forgetful. I wanted to show you a great outfit for the office that could easily transform into a sexy ... [ Discover More ]

I had grand plans for Boho week but the weather didn't want to play along so this is what you get, my outfit that I wore to a Blog Chicks networking event in Parramatta today. Big crazy natural curls, my favourite sheer dress and some sweet tan accessories... oh and no beige wall, YAY! I received this Scarlett & Jo dress as a gift from Evans, it's a firm favourite and gets plenty of wear. It's up there in my Top 10 and that's saying something as I've worn a lot of dresses. It's the most ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Activewear

Last year I got the opportunity to try a new fitness activity, Cardio Tennis. It was a lot of fun but ultimately a bit too much for me, Steve however loved it and a few weeks ago he signed up for classes. Every Wednesday he heads down to the court and comes back an hour later red faced and covered in sweat. He's entitled to an hour of free court hire every week as a perk so we head down there as a family on Sundays just for fun. I really really really enjoy myself. I put on my favourite ...

Aussie Curves – Christmas

Christmas has been and gone. We travelled up the coast to stay with my family for the holidays and it was bliss. Just Dad, Mum, my sister Stephanie, Steve, Aidan and myself. We went to the beach, the park, the shops and even went out and looked at all the pretty Christmas lights, it was just so damn lovely, the whole trip, everything. So here I am, a week later and I'm writing this post reminiscing and looking at pictures. Ever since we got home I've been cracking the sads. I just want to go ... [ Discover More ]

I don't really have any more fancy parties to attend, my silly season is officially over and I literally just tied a bow on the last bit of work I had to do for the year. I'm officially done. We will be driving up the coast to celebrate Christmas with my family and I can't wait to chill out and relax. I'd be surprised if you found me in anything more than a bikini and sunscreen this week. The make up, heels and hair extensions are definitely staying at home but I will be wearing this dress on ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Resort

danimezza date 2

This time last week Steve and I were running away from home for the night. It had been almost 3 years since we'd had some alone time, just the two of us, doing something exciting and different. This is partly due to the fact that we don't have a baby sitter or disposable income. So when my sister came to stay we took full advantage and booked a night away in Blacktown... yep, you heard right. I originally planned for us (I book our hotels, it's my thing and Steve honestly loves it) to stay at ... [ Discover More ]

I have to admit I've been a little bit excited about this week's theme because it gives me the perfect excuse to twirl about in one of my favourite pieces, my Youtheary Khmer skirt that I got via ModCloth. I also have it in pink, you might remember it from my time in New York. It's still one of my favourite outfits so you know how it goes... buy it in every colour! I received an awesome package from TS14+ and Virtu last week and as soon as I opened it I knew straight away that the gemstone ... [ Discover More ]

Sometimes there is just no point in faking a smile. My expression reflects exactly how I was feeling today and that feeling was "meh". I had stuff to do so I did it. I did my accounting which was like pulling out fingernails in slow motion. I tidied the house and ran a few errands. It just really was a blergh kind of Sunday. I've been falling behind with my challenge posts but not any more. This week's theme is Headwear which is kind of exciting because there are so many ways that this could be ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Yellow

I've never really worn yellow and during the last yellow challenge I struggled, coming up with only accessories to add flair. This time things are totally different. Over the past couple of months that I've been blonde I've been experimenting with colour a lot and it would seem yellow is one of my new favourites. The dress is a new purchase from ModCloth and I love it's name "Cumin Kindness". It's such a gentle dress, so soft and flowing. In fact when I stepped out of the car in Manly ... [ Discover More ]

I've been feeling in a bit of a funk lately. We've been sick, endo has kicked me hard and I've been pushed hard as far as work's concerned so pretty outfits and posing for photos has had to wait. My sister arrived this week so she's helping me catch up on sharing my outfits by taking the photos for me, because she's awesome like that. That means no more beige wall for awhile, yay! As soon as I saw Black & White week was coming up I knew I wanted to wear this dress. I had it in my 'saved' ... [ Discover More ]

I was so inspired by the blog posts for this week's Aussie Curves theme that despite having no new images of my own to share (YET!), I wanted to share their bravery, their confidence and spirit with you all.

Hopefully the images I planned to post will be up next week but until then please check out the blog posts below. ... [ Discover More ]

The response to this year's issue of SWIM+ has moved me more than you know. I'm so very very thankful for all of you who took the time to look, to share and to comment or message me about it. It takes a lot of work, a lot of planning and what feels like a million emails but it's the personal heartfelt and often tearful messages from you that make it all worthwhile. Everyone who collaborated on this years issue did it with joy and out of love and I'm forever grateful because without them it ... [ Discover More ]
