Aussie Curves: Spikes

Posted on

Another Aussie Curves challenge and this time I had to get super creative. I don’t have anything in my wardrobe that is typically spikey. However I think this top does just the trick, it’s studs in a zig zag pattern – spiky right?

The cardigan is from ASOS Curve and has these brown elbow patches (I love!) top is from City Chic and I picked it up in the sales, skinny jeans are from ASOS Curve and wedge boots are from Big W.

I wasn’t in love with this outfit, but now I’ve seen the pictures I’m very happy with the entire look.

My hair is boringly pulled into a ponytail, but I wanted to show my makeup. Foundation is Arbonne, blush is Napoleon Perdis, eye shadows are from MAC and liner is from NARS. I’m not wearing anything on my lips.

I’ve gotten a lot of use out of these shoes lately, I love them with my skinny jeans or teamed with leggings or tights.

Work It {Outfit}

Posted on

My day job involves an office job and after taking a snap in the work elevator the other day I thought it was a good opportunity to show you one of my work outfits.

This is a high waisted skirt from City Chic, long sleeve teal top with embellished collar is from ASOS Curve and the leggings I have on underneath are from Big W.

Hope you like!

Not All Smiles

Posted on

Today I had a meltdown. Luckily it was in the privacy of my home, because it was ugly. There were tears, red puffy eyes and lots of snot.

I’m so inspired by the plus size bloggers and how they embrace their bodies.

I’m still way behind when it comes to accepting my body and loving my curves. Sure I have days where I feel like I look amazing, but the majority of the time I’m not thinking the nicest thoughts about myself.

The whole reason I wanted to join the Aussie Curves challenge was to try and change the way I feel about myself and my body.

I know it’s going to be a long process to get there and not every day is going to be full of smiles, but when I am feeling bad (like today) I just need to jump online and be reminded that beauty can be found at any size.

Shoe Haul {Flats}

Posted on

Yesterday I decided to treat myself so some new flats for work.

I’ve been wearing heals a little more often than usual, but on a day I know I’ll be doing a fair bit of walking at work I like to have some decent (and nice looking) flats on hand.

My favourite place to go for affordable flats is Big W.

Here are the three I picked up, all less than $20 each.

I’m particularly in love with the cream ones with the studded bows.

Where do you buy your flats from?
