Secret Santa Gift Ideas

Secret Santa Gift Ideas

It’s that time of year when people start talking about all things Christmas. There are the Christmas parties, end of year office functions and Secret Santa gift exchanges, catching up with old friends, carolling, spending time with family … but I have to admit that I struggle to get into the holiday spirit when Christmas time rolls around. In fact, sometimes I’ve been called a downright grinch. There’s one thing that makes me less grinchy, and that’s NZ Secret Santa on Twitter. I look forward to it so much and it’s probably the thing I like the most about the festive season. If you’ve never heard of it, it’s pretty epic – basically our national postal service runs a Secret Santa gift swap on Twitter (kind of like the one you might do at work, but way cooler). View Post

You Can’t Wear That: Leopard Print Dress

The older I get, the less patience I have for people who tell me “you can’t”. As if there were some kind of rule that says fat women can’t go bare legged, wear bold prints or rock bodycon dresses. I’m here for all of that and more, because it’s my body and I will adorn it in any way I please. View Post

The other day I wrote about the need to see more plus size women represented in the media. It always excites me when I see plus size women being included in projects and campaigns without having a song and dance from a company about “look at us being all diverse and inclusive”. And that’s one of the things that got me excited about the book 200 Women. It features women who are famous and unknown; celebrated and marginalised; of many cultures, ages, sizes, and backgrounds.

More Plus Please

Did you know that more than half of us are plus size? Looking at television, magazines, films and on the catwalk, you wouldn’t think so, because plus size bodies are very rarely represented in a positive way in the media. No matter how often we say “more plus please” we don’t seem to be seeing a lot more – in film, in television or in fashion. View Post

So you think you can vlog

I’ll be honest, a lot of the time my life isn’t nearly as exciting as some people might imagine. Most days are along the lines of: get up, eat breakfast, reply to emails, do some kind of exercise, get some work done, eat lunch, then more work until it’s time to make dinner. In the weekends, I work. Public holidays, I work. When I’m not working, I’m watching Netflix or spending time with my family. I’m basically your average gal juggling work and family life. However, there are some times when I actually leave the house for something other than a workout, so I thought I’d start doing the occasional vlog so I can share some of my fun adventures with you.
