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.
As a person who loves reading, it is always nice to find a story I haven’t read before and I can honestly say that I’ve never read about a character quite like Brenda Cankles of Big & Fabulous. In my experience, when fat women are included in fictional books they aren’t the main character and their story is often centered around their desire to lose weight. Brenda is not such a character and that alone made her story very compelling. As a plus size lead character she is given the agency to direct the story and narrate it. It is especially nice to read about a plus size woman who not only has no desire to diet but who also loves her body as it is and always has. Compared to many of our other current pop culture examples who are obsessed with weight loss or even contracted into losing a certain number of pounds, I’d say it is very refreshing and much more fat positive. In fact, I’ve got some specific and very timely comparisons for you below.
I love introducing you to plus size brands that are accessibly priced, easy to wear, and on trend. This size range goes from 14 to 36 in UK sizing, which is the equivalent of size 12 to 34 in US sizing. Or, in the sizing system that I think makes the most sense, the European one, they offer sizes 42 to 64. Needless to say, Yours Clothing is a pretty great example of a brand that is offering something for almost every size from inbetweener to plus size. Continue reading “A Night Out With Yours Clothing”
I’m serious, I don’t. Want to be a plus model that is. You may not already be aware of this, but, many fatshion bloggers and even body positive activists have an end goal of becoming a plus size model. In a few rare cases, it has actually become reality. Regardless, it isn’t a goal of mine and here’s why. Continue reading “Why I Don’t Want To Be A Plus Model”
