As bloggers, we often have a planned schedule for our blogs in terms of when we take our photos, when we write our content, and when we publish our posts. Even if it is less set in stone by the brands we are working with and more about our own availability and convenience, we schedule ourselves appropriately. Unfortunately, things don’t always go exactly as planned and the main reason for that is the weather. Continue reading “When The Outfit Is Right But The Weather Is Wrong”
When I posted the first blog post featuring these boots, I got comments on all of my social media platforms asking where I got them. Women were telling me they struggled to find both thigh high and knee high boots that fit their thicker bodies. So I’ve compiled a list of my favourite wide calf and plus size thigh high boots so you can start shopping today. Continue reading “Thigh High Boots for Thick Thighs”
I am so excited to bring you an exclusive sneak peek at the brand Loralette before it has even launched! I’ve partnered with them to bring you a behind the scenes look at what they will be offering. Loralette is the newest collection from Avenue, the third largest plus-size retailer in the USA, that also ships to Canada, yay! Their new styles are meant to appeal to a younger or at least trendier shopper. Because really, what is age but a number? So I believe that you should wear what you love no matter what that number is. I honestly haven’t been this excited about a new brand in a very long time and that’s exactly why I agreed to show you a sneak peek of what they will have to offer as of mid-March. Continue reading “Pre-Launch Sneak Peek: Loralette”
Who doesn’t love a comfy pair of pjs to lounge in? Personally, I think these Foxers Boxers are the perfect summer alternative to long sleeves and flannel pants. Especially given the built in bra and pockets, yes pockets in your undies! Comfy, casual, but still totally sexy. Continue reading “Foxers: Boxers For Femmes”
As the creator of #SelfiesForSelfLove, I certainly have my own love for selfies. In fact, I’ve gone through several styles of selfies taking. From handheld camera selfies in the mirror all the way to using a tripod and a timer. So I decided to have some fun exploring the various forms of self-portraits in this blog post featuring a dress from Pink Clove UK.
I recently made a post on Instagram about the spring trends I had previously seen on the runways and I am now seeing in the stores and online. The one that topped the list, in my opinion, was floral prints. I think it is the perfect spring trend as flowers are literally starting to bloom all around us.

This gorgeous red and black polka dot midi length dress is a dream come true with its short sleeve length and hip hugging stretch. SexyPlus Clothing also stocks a longer sleeve version in black and white that is equally gorgeous. I chose the red because I am trying my best to incorporate more colour into my wardrobe as a person who is kind of obsessed with black and neutral earth tones. I like how even though this dress is vintage in design it can be worn in an everyday style by pairing it with a modern hairstyle and simple shoes. I also love how this is one of the sexiest dresses I own and yet I am completely covered, with even my normally visible cleavage tucked away. It is proof that plus size women can absolutely rock a bodycon dress at any size.
Can you wear white in the winter? A few years ago we might have still been confused by this fashion rule and avoided wearing white after Labour Day, but now we know better. Or do we? Does that rule cancellation apply to all shapes and sizes? Or only some? Are plus size women allowed to wear white? Not only in the winter but any season at all?
I’ve written before about ways to become more body positive but what is the payoff? What results are you going to achieve by joining this radical self-love movement? Of course, these will vary depending on the individual, but overall I noticed 5 major ways that body positivity has changed my life. Needless to say, they are all changes for the better.

Sure, lots of brands ship to Canada, but the importing taxes involved in that process can end up being outlandish. Recently I received a package sent to me from the UK which was valued at $175 and because of an error in labeling I had to pay $110 in taxes to accept six items. Even if the package had been properly labeled, I would have had to pay almost $60 in taxes and fees. The brand was able to fix this mistake but it was still an inconvenience that could have easily been avoided by shopping from within Canada. In fact, some international brands actually say they won’t help with duties and taxes so you’d be stuck sucking up that extra cost. Many brands label the package with the full price or value even if you bought the item on sale. For example, I ordered a dress that was originally around $70 but was on sale for $35 plus shipping. The cost for taxes ended up being $65 so if I had accepted the package I’d have paid $100 plus shipping for a $70 dress. That just doesn’t make sense and we as Canadian plus size shoppers need a better option. Continue reading “8 Amazing Canadian Plus Size Retailers”
