For a variety of reasons, I have almost always had a kind of crap time on my birthday. But this year was so different that I had to share. My amazing boyfriend planned the most incredible full week of events, all to celebrate me. It all started with him asking me what I wanted and me realizing that my “language of love” is that I want time from my partner. So I asked for us to do something together instead of him buying me a physical gift. I even suggested going to see Rocky Horror Picture Show in Stratford & he loved the idea. After looking into the cost and the travel time from our home, he offered to either plan a full week of stay-cation type events or to proceed with the Stratford trip.
I know that Nordstrom isn’t technically a plus size store and I often find it frustrating when a certain style isn’t available in my size, but when it is & it’s on sale, it’s so worth the extra effort. I love this summer dress & it reignited the fashion blogger in me, so I am back. Find out why I left by reading through. Continue reading “Back From Hiatus”
I loved this book so much! I finished it in three sittings at the hair salon & enjoyed every single page. I can’t wait for this book to be released so you can all enjoy the fabulously vulnerable writing of Jes Baker. Her perspective is very refreshing & enlightening. I particularly enjoyed the overall feeling of inclusiveness & acceptance Jes imparts on the reader when the body positive & feminist movement have started to feel so exclusionary. Jes welcomes you to the table while other fat activists are busy telling people “you can’t sit with us”.
As you know if you have been reading my blog, I consider a part of body positivity to include being sex positive. Our bodies, in most cases, were designed to be sexual beings. Being positive about ourselves as whole human beings includes being positive about our sexuality. So when The Kink Kit contacted me to review their new subscription box, I was happy to oblige.

I love eShakti as a place to shop because of how they allow you to customize your clothes to fit your body and your style. For example, on this dress I took it from long sleeves to 3/4 sleeves. In hindsight, I should have also raised the neckline a little bit as this is a tiny bit too low cut for me. I am sure I could have returned it & asked for a slight adjustment, as a few extra stitches would fix it easily. But instead, I decided to… Continue reading “Very Revealing Red Velvet”
I always find it exciting to stumble upon new plus size lingerie retailers, like Love Honey. So when they reached out to me to collaborate on a review post I was excited to browse their online store. Not only do they offer lingerie in a variety of sizes but they also offer sex positive toys, including their new collection from Broad City. Click through to see more pictures and read my full review of this brand and their collection of goodies. Continue reading “Love For Love Honey Lingerie”
As a fan of yoga who also happens to be plus size & a fat activist, I am proud to display “Big Gal Yoga: Poses & Practices to Celebrate Your Body & Empower Your Life” by Valerie Sagun on one of my coffee tables. The book offers something for yogis of every size but in an activity that is usually represented by ultra thin instructors, having Valerie guide us all through the poses is refreshing. This book made me feel better about my body when most other exercise based books have made me feel worse about it. So here’s to my fully visible, yoga loving, belly rolls!

Ever since I first saw bloggers based in the US getting to try out Dia & Co I was kind of jealous. Then I saw one of my favourite local bloggers post some videos of the box she got from them and thought they had finally come to Canada after all of my e-mail pleas, but I was fooled by some cross-border travel. So when I found FrockBox.ca you cannot imagine how excited I was to receive my first box (or rather package) from them. Spoiler Alert: Based on what I saw from the previously mentioned brand and what I received from FrockBox.ca – I’m very impressed with this new option! These are honestly some of my favourite new outfits, I’ve worn two more than once already. Continue reading “Subscription Boxes for Canadian Fatshionistas”
Last year may have been my first Summer of Swimwear but this year I am back and even more confident than before. So I’m excited to be out by the pool for the full 2.5 months it is open during the summer. My first journey out to the pool was in this gorgeous floral print high neck bikini from Loralette.
