Melbourne Show Shenanigans + Outfit!

Saturday night I experienced my first Royal Melbourne Show! I’ve been to the Sydney Easter Show many times (see!) but this is the first year I’ve lived in Melbourne to experience the show. I was originally thinking of going by myself, but when Hayley put up she was thinking of going if anyone wanted to join her, I immediately jumped in with a YES PLEASE!


Thanks to Hayley for taking the above photo & the one at the bottom of the post! It’s starting to warm up a little lately and it’s been so nice being able to wear skirts & dresses again!


Girl Gang!


The animal nursery is always my favourite area, so when we arrived at 5pm, we headed straight over to see all the cute animals! Getting to pat all the goats, sheep & chickens was so much fun!


I only went on two rides, the flying chairs above (soooo fun) and the spin-y roller coaster (which you can see a bit of in the snapchat videos below). I ended up buying 4 showbags, which I’ll have a video up of soon!


The firework show was pretty amazing, and of course we all had to get a professional picture with the little lamb, so cute!

Outfit – Black & White patterns!

Well, hello. This was just a bit of a spur of the moment outfit post. I had to head out to go to the doctors today, and I was honestly feeling like poop. I just wanted something comfortable and I ended up feeling rather cute in what I decided to wear. Apart from the bra, I felt a bit like I channeled the styling of a toddler.


It’s been a busy week for me, I finally saved enough money to get Tonka to the vet to get his teeth out. Dental isn’t covered by his pet insurance. He ended up getting 7 teeth out! SEVEN! I went to the doctor on Monday, and then again today, and I have to go back again on Friday. I also nearly fainted on Monday, I managed to lay down just as I was losing my hearing.


I think you can see that i’m not feeling very well in these pictures, but I wanted to share them anyway, because hey, we’re not always on our A game. After the doctors today, I treated myself to getting my nails shellac’d and eyebrows tinted. It was nice to pamper myself a little.

Fashion, Outfits, Plus Positivity

Underwear, that’s fun to wear!


I have a confession to make, I have never been properly fitted for a bra. Nope. Though I know I am not alone. I found the perfect t-shirt bra a few years ago, bought 4 (2 white, 1 black, 1 bright pink) and called it day. While I do love lingerie, a lot of it isn’t for every day wear, especially plus size items. It’s all babydolls and frills. There never used to be a good ‘inbetween’. Something sexy & stylish, comfortable yet firm, but also affordable.


I’d always looked at the lingerie City Chic released, and would sigh. Sometimes being a plus size lady, with itty bitty titties was annoying. A size 22b was hard to find, and then City Chic started releasing some bras in more cup sizes. Hallelujah!


If you have the chance, go in and try them on. I fell SO in love with the Mila bra, I tried it on in it’s smallest cup size (a D!) and it fit, really well actually. I never thought i’d see the day when I would wear & fit a D cup.

So, this is me. Stretch marks, cat scratches, lumps and bumps. And you know what? I love my body, it’s not perfect, but it’s been with me all my life (duh!). It’s seen me through the best and worst of times, it took me until my 20s to realise that my body is something precious and I should take care of it and respect it. In my teens I had a lot of self hatred after being bullied all throughout school, and I’m human, I still have those moments when “I wish my arms were a bit thinner, or that I didn’t have a double chin”, but then I remember, that things could be so much worse, and I should be happy because i’m pretty lucky to be me.


These pictures were taken by a good friend of mine, and let me say, it’s pretty nerve wracking stripping down to your underwear in front of other people. Random fact, my first ever post on this blog was pretty much about them! So a huge thank you to Nick from Purple Nebula Photography for taking these pictures, and to Kayley for your help making me laugh and not feel so nervous.
