Plus size 10 piece work wardrobe

Plus size 10 piece work wardrobe

Want to talk work wardrobe? Of course, you do, why else would you be here, right? Well, I work three days a week in manufacturing which means my job is pretty varied. One day I’m managing quality documentation, the next I’m presenting tenders or marketing submissions. The one thing that stays the same is my simple, pull it on and get out the door work wardrobe. I wear the same pieces mixed and matched over and over again. It’s why there’s no point posting daily outfit photos of my work clothes. They’re the same ones you’ve seen over and over since 2009 with a few additions. Yawn. But you know what? That’s the reality of it. They are work clothes, I…

Team, meet my newest brand crush Universal Standard.

Team, meet my newest brand crush Universal Standard.

Bought to you by Universal Standard’s Universal Fit Library. Ladies, meet someone who has become very special to me, Universal Standard. The love affair with them started when I came across their Starter Kit idea. You purchase seven pieces, receive the eight for free and you can mix and match it into 20 looks! As someone who’s wardrobe often takes over and gets out of hand, this streamlined idea was so exciting. I pinned every single one of their outfit ideas.  Because of that, they’d been on my list to try for ages. But I was unsure of sizing (me, not them), plus I already possess a billion items of clothing and I’m easily distracted, so I’d never gotten around to…

Five shows I’m loving on Netflix

Five shows I’m loving on Netflix

Oh hello TV people, welcome to the blog! We’ve often talked about Netflix, the shows and movies we’re watching, on the Facebook page, so it’s great to have you here. Some of these choices could be controversial and I’m okay with that. After all, it’s TV, how serious could the discussion about such things really get. Don’t answer that, I know, it’s very serious business. Haha. Anne with an E Guuuuys, Anne Shirley spoke to me as a tween and not just because I longed for red hair. Her passion and love of books were something I related too. She was relatable with her short temper and tendency for whimsy. When I heard there was a remake, well, I was…

Sunny Autumn days outfit

Sunny Autumn days outfit

It turns out that the title of this post is a little outdated. Whoops. We have already hit winter (officially) because boy oh boy, doesn’t time fly. I decided to keep it though because what I’m talking about is those sunny days where it’s warm enough for pretty much whatever you want to wear but cool enough for a jacket. Those magical days. And on magical days a girl needs an outfit.  For me, the go-to, fall-back, never fail outfit is a simple dress, ankle boots and a jacket (usually something pretty light). For some of you, it will be jeans and others a maxi dress, we all have our items or style that we love. In the end, the rules…

Could I go a week without spending any money?

Could I go a week without spending any money?

As you’re aware, the YouTube obsession is high over here at the moment. And you can’t be on YouTube without coming across some content from the big guy that is Buzzfeed. Part of their content strategy seems to be ‘we try stuff so you don’t have to’. Excellent! I love stuff. So, I thought maybe what I need is a little Buzzfeed-inspired challenge for myself on the blog. I’m enjoying trying more stuff out, writing more and all that jazz, so a challenge sounds like fun. But what to do first? That was a question. A question answered by the overflowing with coffee cups and packages bin next to my desk at my day job. Could I survive a week…

#Sonseex17sundays outfit giveaway!

Long term lover of 17 Sundays reporting for duty! And if I ever wear tights or stockings, Sonsee are my brand. So when the two powerhouses decided to join forces and give you a chance to WIN an entire outfit (my dress, bomber and tights!) for their Winter Giveaway, I knew I wanted in. Because if I know you guys, and I feel like I do, I know you LOVE giveaways. I mean, who wouldn’t want this dress/bomber/tights combo? For those looking for sizing advice, I’m sitting around a 24 at the moment. I’m wearing the 22 in the floral bomber and even with my broad shoulders, it fits well. It is snug when I zip it up over things,…

Are you addicted to your social media?

Are you addicted to your social media?

Well, bet you didn’t think you’d hear this one from me, right? The blogger, telling you that there’s such a thing as being TOO attached to your social media and by extension, your phone. Well, I am. That’s because I’m your girl. I’m in the best possible position to speak to you about this; I live and breathe the internet. It’s my hobby, my relaxation and a large part of my livelihood. Even with all of that I had to learn when to turn off and how to be okay with it. Let me tell you a little about THAT! A couple of years ago we sold our home and moved to my sister’s house while we purchased our next…

I’m a really bad sick person

I’m a really bad sick person

Well, this month has been SOMETHING. Sick, toothache, tonsillitis, and a to-do list that was crushing me. If you’re in the vicinity, you would have heard about it. I hate being sick, it’s such a waste of good time and energy. Yes, it happens because I let myself get run down, skip that dentist appointment, etc etc. BUT, it doesn’t mean I have to be happy about it. Complaining is top of my list when I’m sick, second only to a bunch of laying around sniffling. Not one to skip a meal when I’m sick I gravitate towards broths and won ton soups, salty chips and warm gravy, or comfort in the shape of a macaroni. But you know the…

Mr Suger’s least favourite outfit, ever.

Mr Suger’s least favourite outfit, ever.

Ladies and Gentleman, meet Mr Suger’s least favourite outfit ever! That’s a heck of a claim, right? A lot to live up to but I assure he was adamant, bless his heart. This outfit, which I thought was very “watch me transition seamlessly through autumn into winter“. Heck, it barely even had any black in it. But nope, the Mr wasn’t a fan and if you’ve read this blog for a little while you’ll probably guess why… It was the pants. The harem style, low hanging crotch, some (Kel!) might even call “bunchy crotch” pants. I didn’t have the heart to tell him I have multiple pairs. I also own them in black, in a grey/black heavier material and a cropped…
