A Welcome Package

So I’ve been a little down in the dumps lately.

Nothing specifically but lots of little things, going away for Christmas means being away from the boyfriend for two weeks. Spending lots of money on Christmas gifts when I’m used to spending it on myself ­čśŤ and trying to get my studies finished before the Chrissy break.

Lots to do and there never seems like enough time to do it.

So last week I treated myself to an online shopping spree on ASOS. I had a very handy discount code and ended up buying 5 different tops for just over $100 and they arrived a couple of days ago.

Online shopping is always a risk, will it fit? Will it looks the same on me as it does on the model?

This time I got it right, all the tops are amazing! I picked well and when it came to sizing I was honest about my size, not selecting what I wish I was. Everything fits great and yesterday when wearing one of the tops I felt so confident.

It’s crazy really how just a new top made me feel like a million bucks, but the fit and style just made me feel like the hottest girl around.

Nothing like a new outfit to bring you out of your funk – I highly recommend it!

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?

17 Sundays

I’m always on the prowl for a good plus-size retailer and have heard a lot of good things about 17 Sundays, but haven’t had the opportunity┬áto purchase anything.

However this week is my lucky week and they currently have a 40% sale on EVERYTHING! Never one to turn down a bargain, I jumped on and snapped up four different items.

I’m keenly awaiting their arrival on my door step and will make sure to incorporate at least of those purchases in next week’s Aussie Curves challenge!
