I have always been told I don’t suit high necked tops because they made my face look rounder, which is apparently a “bad” thing, but I’ve since realised that I don’t give a shit because this is just my bloody face, okay? That’s how it is and there’s nothing wrong with that. View Post

Survivor New Zealand kicked off a couple of weeks ago and my girl Hannah Gough (aka Glam) has been on there repping for the plus size Kiwi babes. She’s a power lifter, a plus size model and a kindergarten teacher, and this pinup is no princess when it comes to roughing it. I caught up with her to ask her a few questions about body shaming, bikinis and being on Survivor New Zealand. View Post
Ahh winter. Depending on where you are, it can be cold, windy, or wet… and if you live where I do it can be all three in one day! I’ve had lots of people asking me about coats for winter (especially waterproof ones!), so I’ve done a bit of hunting and found options for all kinds of weather. Grab a cup of tea and take a look.

Everyone has some kind of stress in their lives – it might be studying for exams, a new baby, having a looming deadline, a big event coming up … it looks different for all of us. At the moment, my main form of stress centres around being unwell and my recent surgery – pretty unsurprising, really.
For me, stress shows up in a few ways. I feel exhausted but find it hard to sleep; I find it really difficult to focus; I start burning the candle at both ends; I snap at people around me; my skin breaks out and it also affects my appetite. Obviously not ideal! Dermalogica launched their new Stress Positive Eye Lift recently and it got me thinking about how I react to stress. I wanted to share how I make sure I’m looking after myself when I am going through a stressful time, and give you a chance to try out some of that Stress Positive Eye Lift for yourself. View Post
This is me at 33. No makeup, no photoshop, no filter, just me – wrinkled eyes, tired smile and striped dress. I think it’s important to take note of ourselves, what we look like and how we are. My birthday always seems like a good time to reflect on the life I’ve lived so far, and my plan for the year to come. View Post
