Absolutely Chuffed

My first post for Aussie Curves went up yesterday and I can’t believe how supportive everyone is. It’s like I’ve stepped into this alternate universe! Who knew you could find such kindness on the internet.

The other blog that I’ve been running for two years has attracted a ridiculous amount of unwanted comments and attention that I had to enforce a comments policy to stop people abusing myself or others.

It’s so refreshing to find a such a large group of people that all have a common goal that’s positive – promoting a healthy body image while rocking some amazing fashion!

I can’t wait to continue joining in and push my fashion and confidence limits each and every time!

Aussie Curves: Skirt

Here goes my first Aussie Curves contribution.. I keep telling myself to breath!

I rangled the boyfriend out to the footpath near our apartment to take some snaps and for a boy who isn’t used to using a camera, he did a fairly decent job. Except the photo of my shoes.. let’s just ignore how blurry that one is.

As much as this post was about the skirt, it’s also influenced by my holiday in January – a cruise! Which is also why I have my natural curls. This is an outfit I’m intending to make good use of and would love to know what you think or what you would do different?

 

For some reason he wanted me to stand near this tree.

If She Can, I Can

I’ve just seen and read an amazing post by one of my favourite bloggers.

Isn’t she AMAZING?

With such an inspiration on the Internet I’m determined to get an Aussie curves post organised for next week.

If she can do it, I can do it.

Where’s the confidence?

Yesterday I had a plan to take my Aussie Curve pictures for the latest challenge ‘Breaking the Rules’. The outfit was planned in my head, all I had to do was get home from work, change, drag the boyfriend out to take the photos and rock my inner goddess.

When I got home and went to put on the sequined vest I wanted to use is now too small. TOO SMALL!!

I know I’ve put on some weight over the past 12 months because of a new relationship, but some part of me was in denial about how much.

So after getting really upset, having a small cry and the boyfriend comforting me and assuring me I wasn’t the size of an obese walrus I’ve decided to give up on this weeks challenge.

As much as my reason for joining this challenge was to gain better confidence in myself and my body I’m just not there yet, which is really sad. I’ve seen all the girls participating in the challenge and they are all different shapes, sizes, personalities and styles and they exude such confidence, they really are role models.

Fingers crossed my confidence comes in time for next weeks challenge.

Blogging Fail

I’m disappointed to report that I won’t have my Aussie Curves outfit post ready to go tomorrow :(. I thought I’d be all set to take photos today, but after a ridiculously big night out on the town I spent all day on the couch watching Sex and the City.

I’m only just starting to feel human and it’s 8.30pm.. Way too late to be glamming up for an outfit post. I also have work and makeup class tomorrow which means I won’t be getting it done until Tuesday night. Note to self, be more organised!

This morning on ‘The Morning Show’ there was a segment about a search between a model agency and lingerie brand, to find a plus size model. This model needed to be between an Australian size 12-16.

Maybe I’m new to this topic of conversation, but last time I checked an Australian size 12 could shop in every clothing retails store. They are not plus sized.

Around the world plus sized is considered an Australian size 14 or over.

I have nothing against size 12 models – they are people after all. I just don’t like a brand or modelling company trying to sell me plus sized clothes that are displayed on someone that isn’t plus sized.

Am I overreacting?

These Boots Were Made For Walking

After a spot of late night shopping, I’m now the proud owner of these AMAZING new boots!

These are from Wittner and were $169.95

I normally wouldn’t splash out on such an expensive pair, but have been searching for these for months after spotting them on another blog.
