SWIM+ 2013 Behind the Scenes

This Friday is the launch of SWIM+, my annual swimsuit summer inspired lookbook for curvy women over a size 14 and it's absolutely FREE! The swim and resort wear is photographed on gorgeous Australian models sized 16-20 styled and shot by me. I wanted to show consumers how garments looked on women who needed a little more physical and emotional support from their summer attire. From shyly showing the internet my body in a cheap ebay halter suit in my backyard, to posing on a yacht with my ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Tee

Aussie Curves Danimezza Plus Size Fashion Outfit Blogger Neon Orange Purple Blonde White Shorts Sandals Embroidered Canvas Casual TEE-1

You would think that with a theme as simple as "Tee" I would have it all sorted and ready to go on time but with everything that went on last week it completely skipped my mind. I wore this outfit out on Wednesday at Castle Towers whilst doing errands with Steve and Aidan, in hindsight probably a little too casual for "snob hill" but who cares. I didn't even wear make up and wore my hair in a messy bun so I guess you could say I was going all out. Sometimes you just need a fun-get-shit-done ... [ Discover More ]

TS14+ Runway Makeup

TS14 RUNWAY MAKEUP-1

This post was brought to you by TS14+ If you're reading this blog you obviously have some sort of vague interest in make up and beauty. I'm not trained in an official capacity to teach you but I have had the privilege to learn from a few masters in my time and it would be wrong of me not to pass along what I've learnt which I try to do in my videos. Yes, there is even a how-to below to show you how you can recreate the make up look from the TS14+ runway last week. I hope you enjoy the behind ... [ Discover More ]

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 ]

Purge and Redecorate

china hutch

It always happens at this time of year. Things start to calm down on the work front and I become a touch more domesticated. Some days I wish I worked in an office, I'm sure I'd appreciate our home more if I did. When you're in it all day everyday working, cleaning, playing and loving it's really easy to just overlook the space. It's been drilled into me for years that Christmas is a time for giving and when I was growing up that phrase had nothing to do with presents. The start of school ... [ Discover More ]

Chobani FroCHO Pops

Earlier this week Chobani sent us a great big crate of yogurt awesomeness, this stuff is crazy good. They sent us a package around this time last year and Aidan was thrilled with it so I was keen to see what was in this one as they're always a surprise. In case you're wondering Chobani is an all natural greek yogurt company. Aidan and I knew straight away what we would make... FroCHO Pops! Aidan's confident in the kitchen so I let him make them, he was so pumped. I sliced up some ... [ Discover More ]

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 ]
