What Numbers Mean

south african blogger, blogging tips, start a blog how,

Some time in March, I tweeted that I wanted to be nominated for the Mail and Guardian young 200 thing. Yes, in 2017, bandla. And if you've even ever glanced at my twitter, you've likely seen me joking about wanting to be an influenza. Mostly, it's jokes. But perceived reach means much more than my thoughtful culture, fat acceptance, plus size fashion pieces.

Where I Want to Do my Online Plus Size Shopping

south african plus size blogger, plus size bloggers,

Without fail, when the markets report comes in on the news, I check where the Rand is trading. In recent years, I've gotten more obsessed with the exchange rate because whenever the Rand reaches lower R13s to the dollar, I convince myself that I could indulge in some online plus size shopping. And by "online," I've mostly meant Asos dot com. With the pound having been relatively low, I darde to go to the British Asos website and put two items on my "saved" list -- convinced that once I finished paying for my sofa that I have on lay-buy, I could get something nice that's in my size and makes me feel cute. But now the Rand is (Chanel #1 voice) super weak -- it's gross! And the pound is climbing so my online plus size shopping dreams are on hold once more.

Awkward Sunflower

 I don't wear this dress enuf. I always think that each time I take it out to wear. Then the reason comes: One button fell out in the bust -- it's safe in a buttons holder and another inevitably follows -- but I'm yet to put them all back on. I thrifted it early last year when my ngoja had many summer dresses come in.
