boohoo plus

Over the years I've been lucky to have met plenty of people who inspire me, Donny Galella is one of them. When I was invited by boohoo to catch up with Donny and talk fashion, style and the label's latest offerings I couldn't refuse! You might remember our last collaboration but since then we've run into each other a lot on the Sydney fashion circuit. A car came and picked me up to take me to the city, it's always such a treat! I used the time to put my face on and answer emails, messages and ... [ Discover More ]

I was just scrolling through instagram as usual and then... BAM!!! These women just blew me away, I literally ran to my laptop to repost and give them as much support as possible. I just can't even... right now... no words... just utter awesomeness. Don't delay any longer, just watch... "This video is dedicated to the mainstream media, to the fashion industry, to internet bullies, and to anyone else who thinks it's their right to try to make us feel less than because of their ...

Aussie Curves – Time Saver

Aussie Curves Danimezza Plus Size Fashion Blogger Outfit Asos Curve Jumper Torrid Jeans Blonde TIME SAVER -7

I'm chronically 15 minutes late, ask anyone who knows me. I never intend to be, I just have trouble prioritising and as an added bonus I feel like I have the capacity to do ALL THE THINGS all at once... it drives Steve up the wall. Time just never seems to be on my side and my day-to-day outfits usually reflect that. It needs to be an effortless, simple outfit to get me out the door on time. For a fancy event I'll usually allocate half a day in order to get ready and arrive in the city on time, ... [ Discover More ]

Aussie Curves – Sparkle

You're probably wondering "Where the hell is the sparkle?" but bear with me, this year I'm doing sparkles in an understated fashion... sorry, a blurry understated fashion *sigh*. Somedays just aren't my days and this was one of them. It was Steve's birthday so I wanted to look nice for whatever the day had in store for us. As you can tell we were winging it, moving doesn't allow much room in the budget for fun. Turns out an entire afternoon the Apple Store genius bar isn't as awesome as it ... [ Discover More ]

City Chic Outlet Shopping

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...

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 ]

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 ]

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 ]

How to Take a Pretty Licence Photo

IMG_4104

Licence photos aren't meant to be flattering but that doesn't mean you shouldn't at least try. I renew mine every year mostly because I like that I have the opportunity to take a new photo. As I sat and thought about how I could make "Danimezza's Drivers Licence of 2013" super awesome it also dawned on me that other people might give a crap about this sort of thing too so I decided to share my tips... enjoy! Lighting for these photos are always terrible so the best way to combat darkness or ... [ Discover More ]

It's been so nice outside lately and I haven't been taking advantage of it as I've felt so miserable. I'm changing my habits and trying to shake off the clouds. So today Steve hung out the laundry, Aidan ran about with Charlie and I whipped on my activewear and decided to try something new. My gorgeous friend Meaghan from Little Lime Dress posted a YouTube link on facebook which lead to a work out video specifically aimed at plus size women that she featured in. Within seconds I was hooked ... [ Discover More ]

The Ultimate TrackMaster™

THOMAS_DM-1

Sponsored by Nuffnang Aidan likes presents just as much as the next kid. You can probably tell from the gigantic grin on his face that he loves big presents more. In our house we have very limited battery operated toys. Working from home I just can't bear the inane noises and flashing lights from toys but when Nuffnang asked to send Aidan a Thomas & Friends Trackmaster "Risky Rails Bridge Drop" set to review I couldn't bring myself to say no. It didn't take him long to rip it all ... [ Discover More ]

Wash your favourite bras and undies. Trust me, you'll want your best ones on hand when you're meeting new people. Feeling spendy? Why not splash out on a new set or two for a dash of sexy confidence. I'm not saying they have to be little lacy numbers, maybe just a pair in your favourite colour oh and it's best that if no one can actually see them except you. That look is best left to Kath & Kim. Charge your batteries... all of them. Your phone, your laptop, your back up batteries... ... [ Discover More ]

How to Look Good When You Feel Crap

Last week I was feeling pretty miserable, gross and unapologetically sick so to drag myself out of my funk I decided to put my face on and get out there... even if it was only to the post office. I thought it might inspire others to do the same so when you're feeling "blah" like I was, think of me and this little video. What do you do to feel better?   ... [ Discover More ]

Quick Natural Make Up

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 ...

Kidspot Ford Territory Top 50: A Woman’s Perspective

DIML_TOP50_KIDSPOT_DANIMEZZA-1

Having the Ford Territory parked in my driveway has been ever so lovely but really in the end, it's just a car... albeit a luxurious car that gets me comfortably from point A to point B. What really sets it apart from the one I have now is in the details. I can easily find happiness in the littlest things and thankfully the Territory has plenty of them, so many in fact that I have to list them all!
