Big big big thanks to Universal Standard, first of all, for sending me the Mae Sweater, the CLEAR STAR of this post. It’s soft and warm (but not too warm) and genuinely the most comfortable sweater I’ve ever worn. I feel so fricking cozy but also stylish as heck in this. Read More
If you’ve been under a rock: holographic/multidimensional/multicoloured highlighters have been huge lately, which I’m all about. The only highlighters I really even wear anymore are of the holographic/multidimensional/multicoloured variety. They can, however, get really fricking expensive. SO, I’m doing my second saving-you-money-monday on funky coloured face powders. Especially for springtime (WHERE THE FUCK IS SPRING), shimmery pink, blue, and green cheeks are going to be so much fun. Read More
I’m allllllllways on the lookout for new places to buy clothes. Sometimes I’ll find amazing stuff in straight size shops like Zara and H&M (I have a size small blazer I bought a few years ago that’s too still big for me). When I heard about the recently opened Uniqlo in Toronto being new the go-to for some of my favourite plus-fashion bloggers, I decided I needed to check it out. Other than quickly popping in to buy this sweater a couple months ago, I never really took the time to thoroughly look at their clothes or try anything on. So, I headed in to try and find all the XXL’s I could, to see if they would fit my XXL body. I find that a lot of places that carry extended sizing don’t cater to the plus size body: they just, offer the same stuff but bigger. This is all well and good except… I don’t look like a mannequin. I have bumps and lumps and rolls. So I was interested to see if this extended-straight-size concept would work.
I guess I’ve been PRETTY lucky in the past to have never really experienced ‘internet bullying’. As a blogger, and as a fat female blogger, this is something that I’m constantly expecting. Obviously I’ve had the classic and uninspired “ur a whale” comments, as well as the slightly more creative “she’s an evolved version of Snorlax”, but those never bug me. I’m fat, and there are millions of fatphobic people out there. Not my problem.
