Frugal February

Frugal February Clothing Rack

I’m usually one of those people who makes plans, but the other day I made a spontaneous decision and I feel like I need to tell you about it because if I don’t then no one will know and I’ll just back out of it and it will never happen. After reading a post from Fern at The Fern Life’s decision to cut back on her Kmart spending, I’ve decided that I’m going to join her in taking on the Frugal February challenge. I’ve decided that I’m not going to spend any money this month that doesn’t need to be spent. View Post

How you talk about your body

Meagan Kerr Kmart One Piece Plus Size Swimsuit

It’s really easy to make negative throwaway comments about yourself, whether it’s how smart you are, how you look without makeup or your body. I notice it all the time, I overhear in dressing rooms, at the beach, and see it on social media. I notice it most in summer, when you have a combination of the pressure of having a bikini body and all the “New Year, New Me” diet nonsense being thrown at you.

Wedding season is coming up and with it comes a question I get asked every year – “can I wear black to a wedding?”.

Sounds a bit passive-aggressive if you ask me! View Post

Hair removal 101

What kind of hair removal is best?

When I first started shaving my legs and underarms as a teenager it was definitely because that’s what seemed to be expected of me as a woman. If I didn’t, I got teased at school when I got changed for gym class. There was a few years in my 20’s where I grew out my underarm hair and didn’t care whether guys preferred a full bush or none at all, but now I choose to remove my hair because my genes have seen me blessed with thick dark hair that I find itchy and irritating for my skin. I still don’t care if guys prefer a full bush or not. View Post
