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 ]

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 ]

TS14+ MSFW Moments

ts Collage 1

This post was brought to you by TS14+ I've been a little bit all over the joint the past few months, most recently on the Gold Coast but just prior to that I was jetting off to Melbourne Spring Fashion Week to see TS14+ on the runway. I've spoken about my relationship with TS14+, the make up looks and a now I want to give you a bit of insight into my trip. I arrived in Melbourne around midday the day before the show and the weather was absolutely beautiful, in all my trips it has never ... [ 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 ]

TS14+ Runway Looks

ts14

This post is brought to you by TS14+ Attending runway shows is always a little bit exciting. There is a thrill in the air as people rush about backstage, the crowd filters in to their seats and the photographers stand their ground in the media pit. Usually I'd be in there with them but this year as the #TS14PlusInsider I sat front row and it was brilliant, better still it was free to attend so you could have too. The TS14+ runway shows were held around lunchtime to a crowded house within ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Bling

aussieoutfit-08

I was really looking forward to this week's challenge but as with most things lately it was left to the last minute. Stephanie and I dressed up in our best bling and headed out to take photos. Finding a location presented it own challenge but as soon as I saw the giant trees covered in candy coloured lights I knew we'd found it. Earrings - Lovisa circa 2011 Necklace - Lovisa circa 2010 Lazer Cut Cardigan - TS14+ gifted Tank Top - Crossroads Belt - 17 Sundays gifted Silky Skirt - ... [ 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 ...

Aussie Curves – Skirt

aussieoutfit-08

This smile is a lie, this shoot was tough. My hunky "tripod" is currently overseas for work so there was no one around to help me take the pictures, you know, besides Aidan. I chucked an outfit on, set up the tripod and my remote failed, no matter what I did the thing wouldn't sync. What did I do? I put the camera on self timer and walked back and forth, back and forth like a goose. It took five times longer, most didn't focus but I was PMSing too hard to care. Yep, endometrial torture for the ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Picnic

AC_PICNIC-1

Last week's 'Stripes' theme was fun, it pushed me a little bit out of my comfort zone and I'm not even 100% sure I pulled it off. This week's theme is 'Picnic' which basically means no rules so I was determined to keep my look laid back and simple, everyday Danimezza style. I packed 'the most beautiful picnic basket in the world' with lots of delicious goodies for us to eat in the late afternoon sun. I made a fresh batch of brownies just for the occasion and splashed out on some yummy cheese. ... [ Discover More ]

TS14+ MSFW RUNWAY

TS14_MSFW-32

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 ...

Get the Look TS14+ MSFW

TS14_MSFW-10

I love going backstage, it's often my favourite thing about a runway show. Everyone is rushing around, I'm trying my best to stay out of the way and catch those moments of clarity in between. It's the only time you're really allowed to move, to document and see the candid human energy behind a show. Whilst the show was taking place in the tent, hair and make up was being sorted just across the road in Town Hall. It really did feel like a "hive" of activity, especially with the honeycomb ...

Manhattan Bound

It's starting to sink in. On Friday I fly out to New York City. I can't breathe. You know those dreams you have growing up, the grand plans you set out for yourself that you never believed would be achievable... going to NYC is one of mine. To me it's where you go if you want to prove that you're a somebody. It's where you give it your best shot. It's where the competition is. It's where glory awaits... but that could just be me. I dreamed to be a photographer... and I am. I dreamed to ... [ Discover More ]
