Winter pyjamas to snuggle up in

Winter 2017 Plus Size Pyjamas

If you follow me on Facebook you’ll know that I’m planning a room revamp at the moment (don’t worry, I’ll be sharing the results here so you can check it out!). It’s all planned around my bed, so naturally I’ve been looking at pyjamas and thinking about snuggling up. I’ve picked out a few of my fave pairs and thought I’d share them with you in case you’re keen to get cosy too. View Post

Sculptured

One thing I’ve noticed in the world of plus size fashion, is how often we use terms like flattering to describe clothes that create the illusion of you being smaller, more hourglass shaped (which is apparently the ideal body shape) or that hide supposed “flaws”. Quite often, people tell me that things I wear are not flattering because they accentuate my wide hips or they are fitted to my body or, in complete contradiction, are not fitted to my body. Hide yourself in fabric, but not too much or you’ll look fat. View Post

Black on Black

As you well know, I am a big fan of all black everything. Give me layers upon layers of black on black, add a smidge more black and you’ve just about nailed it. Different fabrics, textures and details are part of what takes an all black outfit to the next level, and I’ve found some babes rocking black on black to help inspire you. View Post

Athleisure

I’ve always struggled with casual outfits, because I believed for so I long that as a fat woman I had to put more effort into my appearance than smaller women do, and I thought that casual was too casual so I ended up way overdressed a lot of the time. When a thin woman wears sweatpants and has her hair in a messy bun, she’s cute and relaxed. When a fat woman does the same she is seen as lazy and like she doesn’t care about her appearance. I know right, what the heck? View Post

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
