When You Are Fat, You Get Excited About a Pair of Jeans

south-african-plus-size-blogger, plus-size-south-africa

This is my second pair of jeans in four years. Jeans were never really a big part of my wardrobe growing up because I hated bootleg jeans with a passion and the whole low-rise thing the 00s had going on made me feel bad about my fupa (fat upper pelvic area/mkhaba and love handles). Or whatever. But by my late teens -- first year -- I began wanting jeans in my life. I remember, in first year I had a pair of jeans my mother had bought for me when I was, like, 15, taken in because I'd lost weight and alterations don't cost as much as a new pair. Anyway. Back to my new jeans and going jean-less for four years...

Fat Girl Shopping: 3 Merien Hall Dresses at Edgars

merien hall dresses

I don’t know much about the Merien Hall brand that Edgars carries. I’ve mostly encountered it at the store on Rissik – not that I visit many Edgars stores anyway. But I thought maybe it’s Australian and that's what I'm going with since google couldn't school me otherwise. If you know the true Merien Hall story, please leave me a comment! 

If you'll be attending a wedding this summer and need a dress, Merien Hall is worth a look -- even though their sizing is pitiful.

3 Reasons You Should Try Garnier Pure Active 3 in 1

garnier 3 in 1 face mask, garnier pure active south african review, south african beauty blogger, claymask review,

Who's up for a switch up? The last few posts have been rather word-heavy, which is great! But I've decided to finally get around to reviwing the garnier Pure Active 3 in 1. Who doesn't like the dog ear and flower crown filter? I've gotten in the habit on turning to Snapchat whenever I'm getting my mask on, usually on a Saturday, and waiting for the fifteen minutes to pass. It wasn't until a few weeks ago that I finally realised why the Garnier Pure Active 3 in 1 product is worth a buy.
