Honey, I’m home!!!


Hello There, allow me to introduce myself ha ha! 

I’ve been ghost for a while – Mom Duties – but boy did I miss blogging! So glad to be back!

Here’s what had me MIA!


Yes, it was my kid’s Drum Majorette Nationals Competitions and it was awesome! Brings me so much joy to watch her & the team on that field – the blood, sweat & tears that go into every march – gives me goosies everytime! 

Anyway, the outfit I’m wearing, this wasn’t the outfit I planned but I kinda, sorta overslept this morning so I literally just grabbed whatever was close – don’t judge me – winter has me snoozing through the most annoying alarm every morning – I’m just as surprised lol!

Breaking Rules


If I had a dime for every time (my rhymes are tight though LOL) I was told that “fat girls should NEVER, EVER wear white” – oops…sorry…NOT sorry!!!

Yes, this is me, in my fat thighs and fat tummy and fat arms – rocking ALL white AND taking pictures of my fat body in my ALL white outfit – omg…the audacity!  Ha ha!

You know what they say about rules…yep, I broke ’em!

There is NO right way to have a body and there is absolutely NO reason why fat girls cannot wear whatever they please,  so rock your white with confidence my beauties!

How fabulous is this shirt from FabLane Online ?!?! It’s giving me all the feels right now – thank you Michelle.

1 shirt 2 ways 


Hey Beauties!  It’s Fri-Yay!!!!! 

And… Because it’s Friday – I’m sporting my usual comfy, casual day-look BUT…I decided to do a chic night out look wearing the same shirt for those days when you need a quick outfit change without all the fuss.

Sleeveless Coat 

  
Hey Gorgeous Peeps! 

Firstly, let me say that South-African weather is totally bipolar. Yesterday was extremely cold and wet and today, albeit a little windy, the sun’s shining and the weather’s fine – as if yesterday never happened at all! 

I might have been more than a little excited when the weather turned cold and rainy yesterday, just so I could pull out this sleeveless Melton coat I purchased from Fablane Online – ha ha! 

Thank you Michelle at Fablane Online – your service and the quality of your goods are superb – totally worth every cent! 

Ladies, head on over to her Instagram profile here and check out all the trendy items she stocks!

1 Year Blogiversary!!!

Wow!!!! All About That Bass turns 1 – that’s right – 1 year ago I hit the publish button on my very 1st post. I had no idea what to expect as I set off on this blogging adventure, all I knew was that I had a deep desire to reach out to those who thought that you had to look a certain way to look or feel beautiful.

It wasn’t (and still isn’t) about the likes or comments or the number of followers – NO – it’s never about something as superficial as that – this blog was birthed from a desire to uplift and inspire women just like me – who often measure their worth by the number on the scale.

Looking back on the past year – I have to admit – this blog has forced me to grow in ways I never imagined. It has been such an amazing journey of learning, sharing, friendship and most of all gratitude!

Every e- mail subscriber, Facebook “like”, share and comment!

Everyone who follows me on Instagram and Pinterest!

All of the likes, pins and comments on the posts I’ve shared!

The sweet bloggers who include me in their blogroll!

A huge and heart-warming THANK YOU!

To celebrate, I will be giving away these 3 Revlon products to 1 lucky reader, all you have to do to enter is comment on this post and tell me what you love most about this blog!

(Please note – only people in S.A)

 

Thank you for reading & remember to stay sassy

What a week this has been!!!!

I was so spoilt this week by so many that I had to make sure that it wasn’t November (my birthday month)!

One of those spoils are these cute sneakers I’m wearing – my SIL blessed me with them last night so I thought I’d do a post wearing them.

It got me pondering on the concept of giving – we sometimes undervalue what giving can do for the receiver and also the giver! In my opinion – giving is a natural response of LOVE – and what are we if we don’t have love right?!?!

So, to all who showed me love this week – thank you! I value you!

Lacking Symmetry 

   
 Yes, I know I could’ve just said assymtrecial but I like the sound of lacking symmetry – ha ha! 

I love this assymetrical top, comfy and light, and hides all my problem areas. 

Paired here with my pleather leggings and some heels, and it’s perfect for a night out with the hubster!

Sporty Spice 

  
Hey, hey, it’s Friday!!!! 

Today my outfit is very relaxed and sporty. You’d think I was going to hit a 5km run or something – but believe me – I AM NOT! Ha ha!

I had this cool tee custom-made (like many others I own) by the awesome peeps over at  Tiffany Morgan Creations. I just love the quality of their work and their efficiency. I literally get my orders within a few days. Thank you Janice and the Tiffany Morgan Creations crew. You guys rock!!!!

Tiffany Morgan Creations specialises in personalized clothing, with a strong focus on blinging the bride. Some of their products include bridal party tshirts, satin bathrobes/kimono’s, towelling slippers, mugs and more. They also do I Do stickers that are worn under a bride or groom’s shoes. Visit their Facebook page and let them personalise it your way…
This outfit also features my first Superbalist purchase – these cool Adidas Flux sneakers! Super comfy and sleek. I really love the gold sole – very different!

Sleeveless Blazer

  
Who doesn’t love a good blazer right?!?!? 

Well, I just couldn’t pass this sleeveless, longer length blazer from MRP. I know, almost every item I own is purchased at MrP but sadly, there just aren’t many options for us fuller figured ladies here in SA. Also, I find that most of their garments are real value for money. So, I find myself searching their online site quite often ( maybe a little too often in my husband’s eyes lol). 

I know that plus size fashion has come a long way since oversized, shapeless overalls, but I still feel that we’re really not spoilt for choice as opposed to our straight size counterparts. 

Hopefully, more designers and retailers will come on board and realize that we like to be stylish too.
