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...

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 ]

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 ]

Lane Bryant – Fashion Style Off

Lane Bryant Danimezza FFFWeek Aussie Curves Outfit Plus Size Blogger Green Dress-2-2

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 ]

LG Optimus G Giveaway

lg1

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 ]

DMNYC Affinia Manhattan Upgrade

Once upon a time in 2012 four grown up princesses with two many suitcases tried to room together in a tiny two bed suite in the middle of New York City. They only had a little money so they couldn't afford anything bigger but they did have a pocket full of dreams. One day princess Samantha used a magic business card and some savvy talk that transformed their tiny abode into a majestic One Bedroom Deluxe Two Bed Suite with enough room for everyone. Each princesses had their own throne and ... [ Discover More ]

Get Steamy with Sunbeam

sunbeam-1

You know I wouldn't write about an iron if it wasn't fabulous right? Well here I am writing a post about one and yes, I'm even giving you the chance to win one! When Sunbeam offered to send me the Pro Glide Plus 8700 (valued at $399) to review I couldn't resist. I hate ironing to the point where Steve and I will purposefully buy clothes that don't require it. On the odd occasion when we needed it, we'd drag out the Tobi Steamer but it was cumbersome and fiddly and if you wanted a crisp collar on ... [ Discover More ]

L’Oreal Revitalift BB Cream

IMG_7914

It's time for another mid-week beauty post and this time I'll be talking about the new L'Oreal Revitalift Total Repair 10 BB Cream, the first anti-aging BB Cream. BB Creams are all the rage and it's not just a passing fad but the new innovation in skincare and make up fit for our new fast-paced lifestyle. I've tried other BB creams but I haven't shown them on the blog because, well, I didn't like them. This one I like, so much so that I made a 2 minute video about it... I was sent both the ...

Quick Natural Make Up

Benefit_Bellabamba_DANIMEZZA-1

You guys have been asking for this for awhile now so I'm finally delivering. Every couple of weeks I'll be sharing a video tutorial showing how I do my make up, my hair and how I care for my skin. I can say this with certainty because I filmed several episodes in one day and they're all ready to go. Now I hate to ruin the vibe here but lets make something completely clear before we start, I am not a beauty expert and I make no claims to be. However I am a beauty product consumer and I have ...

Female For Life – Part One

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

New Years resolutions to start back up at the gym fell through, I was feeling lethargic, stressed and down about my appearance. It happens, no matter how cheery and bright our self esteem usually is, we'll all go through periods (some more than others) where everything just feels drab, grey and boring. Having active friends has been inspiring (can you believe Rhian ran 11kms!) as well as enlightening. I took the plunge, renewed my gym membership at the YMCA, went out of my comfort zone and ...
