I’ve just come back from my summer holiday and one thing that I wore a lot (as predicted!) was my shorts. The weather has been every thing from super hot and humid to chilly and stormy, and my shorts have been a really great go to that are easy to throw on with a tee or a singlet. Continue reading
On Black Friday I decided to do a spot of shopping, including my first order from Torrid. I get a lot of people asking me about Torrid (especially New Zealand shoppers), so I wanted to share what I picked out and a review of my experience. Continue reading
New pyjamas at Christmas is pretty much the best Christmas Eve tradition. I ordered my new PJs ages ago but when they arrived they were way too short so now I’m on a last minute mission to find the perfect pyjamas for this Christmas Eve. Christmas morning is always a casual affair for us, having breakfast and opening presents in your PJs is completely acceptable. But what pyjamas to get? Here’s a few that I’ve found – let me know which ones you like! Continue reading

I am the first to admit that I am a girl who loves a good bargain, and this time of year is prime time for sales, with big ones around Black Friday in November, Boxing Day in December and New Years Day in January. Christmas is in there too, which means plenty of bargains to be had where ever you turn. A lot of you mentioned feeling overwhelmed after the recent Black Friday sales, because there were so many options that you weren’t sure where to start; so I thought I’d share a few of the tips on how to shop the sales that I’ve picked up over the years.

Every year I put together a selection of my favourite plus size Christmas jumpers, and this year is no exception. Added to the mix are a few Christmas tees, because it’s summer here in New Zealand and that means it’s way too warm to wear a big fluffy jumper. I bought my first Christmas tee last year and I love it. Continue reading
Summer party season is almost upon us and I’ve had a lot of people asking where to find dresses for Christmas Day, pre-Christmas event frocks, New Years Eve party dresses, a killer ball gown or prom dress, the perfect wedding guest attire … you name it. Continue reading
I’ve got a long body and my bust and hip measurements are different, so I prefer a bikini that allows me to mix and match my sizes. That way I can get the best possible fit! Here are a few I’ve found this season that have caught my eye – what style do you like? Continue reading
I’ve been for my first ocean swim of the season this week (over a week earlier than my first swim last year!), and that means that it’s time to start talking swimsuits. My swimsuit special is back for another year, and we’re going to kick things off with one pieces. Here are ten of my favourite plus size one piece swimsuits for 2015, bring on summer!

Leopard print is one of those timeless autumn/winter prints, and apparently it’s considered a neutral. I’m not so sure leopard print is really in the same league as navy, black and grey (although perhaps it depends on the type of leopard print?!), but as it is a fashion fave for so many people, perhaps it’s time to let a little leopard slink into my wardrobe!
Summer in New Zealand is really from late December to mid-late March, making now the prime time to get your swimsuit on and head to the beach. If you’ve decided that you’re going to rock a two piece this summer and want a bit of extra coverage on your tummy or you love the look of vintage swimsuits then high waisted is the way to go.
