Aussie Curves Danimezza Plus Size Fashion Outfit Blogger Purple Maxi Skirt Teal Blonde Pink QT Gold Coast Hotel PBEVENT-1

Last Friday was the first day of #PBEvent and from past experience I knew my outfit would have to say as much about me as possible, I was thinking beyond a business card or a quick hello. I wanted my outfit to be memorable, to be eye catching, to reflect my taste and personality but also somehow be comfortable as I knew it would be a long day. That's a lot to ask of an outfit but I'm proud to say I think I nailed it. I received so many compliments on the day, both online and off. Theary's ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Feminine

Strike the world with beauty and behold it in your hands for all to see. Owner of your reflection and all that makes up the atoms of your existence. With grace, power and a silent preoccupation with an understanding of how things are. What they could be. How they could be. A woman's mind is not only her own but away with the stars. Soaking in the atmosphere drenching thoughts and sheets. An all encompassing passion for life. For love. For her loves. She is ... [ Discover More ]

The miniMAG

APRIL Cover 2 007

I published the 9th issue of my beloved little miniMAG tonight and as the weeks go by more and more people are signing up so I wanted to take a moment to let you to know it's making my heart sing, thank you! I'm still playing with it, seeing which days suit, what content you love to read and I'm loving all the questions that keep flooding in which I try my best to answer as promptly as possible. This is a passion project for me and I thank you again for reading. If you haven't yet, feel free to ... [ Discover More ]

Tune Up

drifter

Health should never be neglected and with my big New York trip just weeks away I had a frank talk to my doctor about how I've been feeling physically and emotionally. I explained that I was feeling a little lost since Aidan started Pre School and had begun leaning on my old crutch, comfort food. I didn't want to get lost in that pattern again so I asked to see a counsellor to discuss my issues deeper with. After a few embarrassed tears my appointment was scheduled. I also had my asthma ...

I Heart My Body 2012

I've just eaten a bowl of spaghetti for dinner and Aidan is playing quietly with his iPad. The sun is going down. "Just do it" I whisper my mantra softly to myself, soon I'm bare faced and naked. My hair is exactly how it looked when I woke up this morning. I grab the camera, set up the shot and call Steve quietly. "Just hold the button down, it will take two seconds" and I was right. It was done, they were taken and it was painless. This isn't a new frontier for me, this naked business. My body ... [ Discover More ]

How To Look Good When You Work Out

virtu active danimezza pink work out exercise-8

I hope you guys enjoyed this week's Aussie Curve's post where I reviewed my new activewear from Virtu and shared that it's ok to "break the rules", that you can be attractive whilst you're active. Today I wanted to talk to you about the things I love to use for a workout. The gym is great but I'll be honest, I haven't been in ages. Since our dog Toby passed away I've preferred to take Charlie (our younger dog) for regular walks to keep him from getting too lonely. I couldn't walk them both ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Blue

AC_Blue-1

I always knew that for this week's theme "Blue" I would wear this skirt. I have so many blue items but this one is always my standout piece. It's super comfy with stretchy fabric and a great length for me going all the way from my waist to my knee. I usually layer it with a singlet, cardigan and flats for a casual "Mumma" look or I can dress it up with a nice blouse and heels. Spidermesh Cardi - TS14+ gifted Floral Dress cut into a Top - Lily & Lou (BigW) circa 2010 Blue Pencil ... [ Discover More ]

Stare

stare

Have you ever sat on the train quietly, your headphones blasting Missy Higgins new album of soulful treats whilst you put your make up on and find yourself being stared at? I have. Melissa has too. It’s rarely the dirty old guy you think it will be either, most of the time it’s other women and maybe staring is the wrong term, “studied” is a better explanation. Usually they’re curvy teenagers who’ve developed early or people my age dressed in baggy black sacks that look wistfully at my colourful ... [ Discover More ]

Female For Life: Part Four

ONSIE_2012_DANIMEZZA-2

Every now and then I do something even I don't expect me to do... like flounce about on my blog wearing a onesie. You could say FFFWeek gave me the burst of confidence I needed to show you the Yoga Body Suit from Female For Life. I've been holding on to it for weeks, making excuses not to wear it. When Mel initially asked me if I'd wear it I said "Yeah sure no worries I could rock that no problem!" but when it arrived I was nervous. Like the rest of the active wear it's really small but then you ... [ Discover More ]
