Aussie Curves Danimezza Plus Size Australian Blogger Outfit Blonde City Chic Floral Digital Print Retro Neon Pastel Pink Lilac Cardigan WEDDING-4

On the weekend we attended a wedding, a union between two new friends and it was very special. I meet "Meeks" at Aidan's preschool and casually built up a friendship as her daughter and my son were smitten with each other. We invited their family to Aidan's birthday party and we all just hit it off, even Steve and he's a hard nut to crack. We were excited to get to know this family better but sadly a month later they had to move for "JJ's" work. Meeks + JJ got married on Saturday and it was ... [ 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 ]

Da Club

Last Friday night I went out dancing at my local nightclub... I know, who am I? I'd never been there before and beside the odd blogging conference I hadn't been "out-out" in years. I get the most amazing opportunities to go to awesome places, drink incredible concoctions, wear fun outfits but at the end of the day I'm still "working" and have to have some resemblance of my "game face" at the end of the night. I can never truly just let loose in those situations but when I'm chilling out with ... [ Discover More ]

The lovely Sunny offered to arrange a Christmas dinner and drinks meet up for the Sydney Aussie Curve ladies, I was so excited about just attending an event without having to do any of the planning. There have been a few events thrown in Melbourne and Brisbane too and I hope more cities and towns get in on the action. All the events are organised through the private Aussie Curves facebook group, you just have to request to join then once accepted, check out the events page. We were headed to ... [ Discover More ]

Boyfriend Collection

 This post is brought to you by Target Australia   I was 4 when I had my first boyfriend, his name was Luke. Our parents were friends and we'd hang out all the time, holding hands and sitting in laundry tubs filled with water in the sun. It was the 80's after all. In primary school boys wanted to me to be their girlfriend but I always said no. I didn't need one, besides my dad would never let me. The good girl routine lasted until I was in year 9 and 14 years old. I met a boy. He was the one ... [ Discover More ]

Casual Brights

Happy Saturday! I plan on sleeping in this morning whilst the boys head to the pool and to keep you all utterly distracted I thought I'd post the outfit I wore to the city yesterday... you know, to maybe buy me a few extra minutes curled up in cozy land. September kicked my ass with awesomeness but now I'm trying to process it all and action several plans. Even my hair hurts. Mum I want a cuddle.  White Tee - Kmart Scarf - Kmart Earrings - Diva Clutch - Kmart Crop Jean - ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Festival

What? Too many casual, messy hair outfits all at once? Sorry about that but the higher the temperature gets the less I care and besides when I'm not sitting in the sun catching a sea breeze I'm in front of the computer working madly. Going back up to Mum & Dad's this week was the best. I got some serious one-on-one time with the little dude and when he was off with Grandma I got some solid work done. Win-Win all round on that decision. Oh and the brassy hair is gone but my regrowth is ... [ 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 ]

Tropical Passion Pop

It's not everyday that you get to go to a poolside party at the Hilton on the Gold Coast so when you do, you frock up! I bought this amazing dress in Darwin and I've been holding on to it, waiting for the right occasion to wear it. I'd originally planned to wear it casually during the day to #PBEvent but I had a last minute wardrobe freak out, changed my mind and I think it was for the best. I felt amazing. The dress is jersey, had pleats to highlight curves and was just so easy to wear. I ... [ Discover More ]

I've spent the past few days on the Gold Coast attending ProBlogger Training Event and it's been super duper fabulous. I'm rooming with Suger and we've both been pretty diligent when it came to taking outfit photos which I'll be sure to share with you over the next week. There was a networking event on Thursday night, just a casual meet up at the Stingray Bar hosted by Blog Chicks. I wanted to be comfortable, look stylish but without too much effort. A dress you can just slip on is perfect ... [ Discover More ]

I'm skipping ahead in my FFFWeek tales as this week's theme is Pink and I desperately want to show off my new purchase! I bought this soft flowing chiffon pink maxi skirt by Youtheary Khmer for just $50 at the Curves in the City Shopping event early on Friday morning, just prior to the FFFWeek Indie Runway Showcase. As soon as I did I knew I'd have to wear it that night. I quickly shopped my suitcase/wardrobe and tucked my spotty swing dress into the skirt for a makeshift top. I just adore it ...

Party Princess

A few Sunday's ago we attended our first proper little kids birthday party. When we've attended in the past Aidan's been much younger and didn't move around much so this was a totally different ball game. The birthday girl was adorable in her little tutu and all the kids ran and danced about the hall which was hired for the party. There was a definite pink theme and Barbie was everywhere... I was in heaven! There was so many cute details to the party. In all the excitement the ... [ Discover More ]

The black and white fashion combination is truly a girls best friend and there are millions of ways you can incorporate it into your look. After staring at my wardrobe for awhile I decided to go all out in one of my favourite maxi dresses from Crossroads. It has a simple silhouette, a great neckline, stretchy fabric, a forgiving print and I'm pretty sure I got it on sale before Christmas. I'm wearing a size XXL.

Just quietly, this week has been mental. We've had Melissa and Kelvin from Suger Coat It here since last Thursday afternoon. The house has been a buzz with blog talk, outfit photo marathon sessions and laughter, lots and lots of laughter. Aidan's deemed "Kelvy" as his favourite and follows him around like a little shadow. As you can see from the photo, they've made themselves at home and I couldn't be more happy about it. On Friday Suger and I were invited to attend the Sydney Bloggers Brunch ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Pastels

Aussie Curves Outfit Plus Size Curvy Woman Brunette White Neon Pastel -1

I'm pretty pale, there's no denying it, so wearing lighter colours often leaves me looking washed out and a bit sickly so I was nervous about "Pastels". I knew during summer I'd want to embrace lighter clothing with easy layers and lots of white, it's a fun colourful trend I didn't want to miss out on. I decided to blend a pastel shade of aqua with white and neon to funk it up a bit. I also wanted to show you that white pants weren't just for old ladies or skinny women on yachts, big girls can ...

How To Look Good When You Work Out

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 ]

Today I'm feeling a little less than average, I'm still love drunk after my epic long weekend at ProBlogger Training Event in Melbourne. I experienced it in excess and loved every minute. I'm quite firmly back to my old and healthier ways now I'm home and it was sooooo unbelievably good to hug my boys. Before I could unpack or pass out I raced around putting an outfit together for this week's challenge, there was no way I was going to miss out on this. Quite a different look for me this week, ...

Wow, you guys really loved last week's theme "Tribal", I was totally blown away by the response. This week's theme is "Stripes" and would you believe I didn't pack a single striped garment when I went to Hayman! Such a beautiful place for photos and I had nothing to wear! Tragic I know but this afternoon Steve came home a bit early and took these pics for me so I could catch up with the rest of the crew. Seriously if I don't have my Aussie Curves post up on on a Monday morning I feel like I'm ... [ Discover More ]

This post is photo heavy so brace yourselves, it's all about the runway show I attended during Melbourne Spring Fashion Week 2012 for TS14+. I still feel so privileged and lucky to have gone and covered the event. It's hard to describe the energy of a runway show, I'm totally addicted to the drama of it all. I wasn't the only lucky one either, the free event had gift bags for the first fifty people at each show (they had a 5:30pm and a 6:30pm showing) and they were really good. A little ...

It's fun to break out of the mould a little, to try a look that's a little bit out of the square and for this week's theme "Tribal" I thought I'd do exactly that. I'm currently on Hayman Island so when planning my outfit the tribal theme was definitely injected with a bit of a tropical jungle vibe.

After getting so many tweets, emails and questions via email I thought I'd share a little bit more about my gorgeous luggage from American Tourister... it's VERY me isn't it! After I knew my trip to FFFWeek was confirmed I contacted American Tourister via facebook asking if they would be interested in a collaboration. I knew they were experimenting with social media as their facebook page was new and they'd recently done a giveaway with Nuffnang. It never hurts to ask and in the end it worked ... [ Discover More ]
