River Island Plus Clothing Haul

River Island Plus Haul

After seeing lots of my UK blogger babes wearing clothes from River Island Plus and finding out that they do in fact ship to New Zealand, I decided to give them a try. It turns out that River Island not only does petite, straight and plus size womenswear (sizes 6-28 or US 2-24) but they also have menswear (including big and tall) and kids clothing. I love being able to order pieces for my whole family from one place, so that’s a real bonus. View Post

Being Bullied: My Story

New Zealand blogger Meagan Kerr talks about being bullied as an adult

It’s not very often that I find myself lost for words, but I have tried to write this post so many times and found myself struggling. I’ve written it and rewritten it more than a hundred times over the last few months. I’ve procrastinated and stopped and started, and that’s how I know that this post needs to be written. Because if it’s hard for me to talk about it then chances are it’s going to be hard for other people to talk about as well, and I firmly believe that we need to shine light into dark corners. We need to talk about things that are horrible and uncomfortable and challenging – like being bullied. View Post

Can I Wear High Necked Tops?

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

Winter Coats

Plus size coats for cold, windy and wet winter weather

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.
