AS YOU MAY KNOW, I’m a sweaty bitch. I sweat PROFUSELY 12 months of the year, only from my head. My armpits and the rest of my body are always bone dry but my forehead will be dripping like a hooker in church pretty much any time I get even slightly too warm or exert myself in the tiniest way.

I’m not a huge fan of my lips, mainly because they’re, well, not huge. Far from it. I’ve learned how to pout a certain way in photos in order to make them look bigger as well as how to overline the shit out of them with lipstick, but in reality they are sad little thin lines of nothing. I’ve wanted lip fillers for a looooong time but I’ve never taken the plunge: I hate needles, they’re expensive, I’ve heard they’re REALLY painful, and it’s so easy to fuck it up and look like a weird fish-human or like Nikki Tutorials. Whoops. 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.
