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

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

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!

How to Dress for Your Body Shape

How to dress for your body shape

I remember reading Cosmo as a teenager, and trying to figure out what shape my body was. Was I a pear? A column? An hourglass? I’m definitely not an apple, my legs are too big and my boobs are enormous. I never quite fit in the definition of any of those shapes, so the “how to dress for your body shape” guides were never all that helpful. As a plus size woman, I found them even less helpful – I’m big in this bit, even bigger in that bit and small in that bit. I decided that I was peanut shaped – sort of hour glass but with more lumps and bumps. How do you figure out what shape you are? I get asked to write guides about dressing for your body shape all the time, so here it is – a really easy guide to figure out what you should wear depending on your shape. View Post
