Screen shopping – Feb finds at Donna

I spend so, so, SO much time browsing online clothing stores that if you asked me where to get something I would be able to tell you straight away and even be able to tell you how much it is. You could say I’m a shopping expert if there is such a thing. So, I thought I would turn it…

How I got to where I am with my body

I can remember feeling like I was fat from the age of 10. I always felt like I was the biggest one in my group of friends, which when I look back now, couldn’t have been further from the truth. We were all pretty much the same size, which means I was the average weight for my age but I…

I am collaborating with Travelstart to help you make the most of the SA public holidays in 2018 and if you use the holiday cheat sheet I am sharing with you, you will have more than…

Where I Shop for Plus Size Clothes in SA

Fashion is my number one. I love clothes, I love shopping, I love looking at and feeling clothes, shoes and accessories, I always have. There are at least a hundred people walking around who think I gave them a dirty look and “upped and downed” them because I was looking at their outfit and they caught me in the act.…
