This weeks Aussie Curves challenge is leather.
Hello big fail whale because I don’t have a single leather thing in my wardrobe, not even a leather necklace or handbag!
After the lovely Lisa reminded me about a hilarious Friends episode I just had to share.
I am beyond excited!
I’ve been working backstage at Canberra fashion event FashFest and I get to go the after party and mingle in the VIP area – cue panic trying to decide what to wear!
This isn’t traditional Westfield shopping fashion, this is off the hook, alternative, out there, amazing fashion! And I want to fit right in!
I’ve already put up a cry for help on the Aussie Curves facebook group and had some fab suggetsions. I’m going to use my spiked shoulder peplum top from the ‘heels challenge’, hair will probably be out and straight with a lot of height. The only issue is the bottoms.
Someone suggested a pencil skirt, which I’m normally very scared of because I feel it highlights my tummy in a BAD way!
If you have any suggestions – HELP!!
For the past few months I’ve been so inspired by Suger Coat It’s blog. Especially the fitness side.
I never once thought that being a ‘big gal’ you could ever write about fitness related stuff, but Suger has definitely opened my eyes up to that!
I also really love she’s done the Couch to 5km challenge and I’m a little inspired, so I’m signing myself up to do the Mother’s Day Classic here in Canberra and walk the 5km track.
I know, walking it isn’t a big deal – but it’s a start! I have a trip to the US at the end of the year and I want to bit fit enough to be able to walk all day and go out all night! So this is my first step to getting fitter (on top of gym visits).
A few weeks ago I bought some fitness gear from Big W and I’m ready to give it a work out!
A friend wanted me to go with her to scout a location for her engagement pics and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to get some pics.
The top is a new purchase from ASOS Curve, I love the statement spike shoulders and peplum. The jeans are a pair I got a while ago from ASOS Curve as well.
Heels are from Forever New and I LOVE THEM! They are super high with a platform and lovely jewel embellishment.
Earrings are from a small boutique in Manhattan
For those that know Canberra, these photos were taken against the front wall of AIATSIS near the national museum.

So clearly I haven’t posted in AGES!
There is hope for me though! I have finished my Cert IV in makeup which was taking up a lot of my spare time with night classes and completing assessments outside of that. Now I’m ready to commit again!
Not just because I feel like the nerd that’s been left out of the party, but because Monday was my birthday and I got some AMAZING clothes from ASOS thanks to my parents. My wardrobe has had an injection of life and I’m ready to start sharing!
So today I’m hoping to work on some outfit pics and you’ll get to see them on Monday
For the past 25 years I have indulged in bad food.
I’ve had moments of regret and guilt, but they were so momentary I never gave them a second thought. Until walking up the stair to my apartment became a struggle and I would try covering my huffing and puffing by yawning.
My fitness has gone running and screaming from me.
I want it back.
I want to be able to walk up the stairs to my apartment while still breathing normally.
I want to be someone who enjoys walking around lakes, hiking and just getting out into the fresh air.
I want to be able to go to New York at the end of the year and not by limited by my fitness.
It’s time for a change.
I know! I haven’t graced you with an oufit post yet! Things have been hectic in my world.
Something I should share with you is I’m just about to be a fully qualified Makeup Artist! So my weekends have been filled with photoshoots and practice for my assessments and my own learning.
I’m also waiting for a parcel from ASOS to arrive with a few goodies I’m hoping to share!
