I’m also having an Ad sale! I’m offering up 300×100 ad spaces in my sidebar for $12! Yep! If you’re interested, email me at – This is a limited time only sale!


Dizzy Little Dotty!


 I’d known of Lauren as an before an email landed in my inbox from her asking if I’d be interested in styling up one of her shirts from her line Dizzy Little Dotty. Of course, being a fan I jumped to saying ‘yes, yes, yes’ straight away, before realising, uh, I don’t wear shirts often!

I’ve tried styling it a few different ways, but I still end up usually pairing it with shorts or leggings. While i’m not sure if I ever style it right, as I’ve said, me and tees aren’t bffs, I actually seem to be wearing this tee FOREVER around the house, it’s like my go to ‘comfort tee’ because it is SO soft. Oh, and the art is amazing!


I am wearing the ‘Honovi tee’ in an XXL and it’s plenty roomy, I could have gone down a size for a more fitted look. I’m seriously bummed out I missed out on snapping up the ‘I like your brain’ tee (below) in my size because how amazing is it!?


You can find all 6 designs up at the Dizzy Little Dotty store, and make sure you check out Lauren’s blog HERE. Oh, and yes, she is the talented lady who I had design my blog header!

DISCLOSURE: I was provided the shirt for editorial consideration. All thoughts are my own.

I’m currently on holidays with very limited internet access. Any emails or comments will have a delay in response. I’m sorry for this. Be sure to follow my instagram, twitter and facebook accounts for holiday updates. I’ll be trying to use the hashtag #XLinAitutaki

Welcome to the new XL as Life!


I had made previous mentions that Extra Large as Life was getting some work done behind the scenes, and now finally, I can show you the in front of scenes newness! I’d been wanting to update the blog design for a while and figured the start of 2013 would make the perfect time, only, my muse could not figure out a header design, so I commissioned the ever so wonderful Lauren Carney to help out.

The frame of the layout is the same, but as you can see the colours have changed slightly, and the text size has been increased. I’m still fiddling around a bit with the sidebar, but I’ve finally fixed up my advertising. I have an all new media kit to go along with the overhaul!

Never fear, the blog will still continue on with having the same similar content. Outfit posts, personal musings, pictures of my fur babies. I’ll be setting up a survey soon with some questions regarding blog content, what you do and don’t want to see.

So, what do you think!?
