People tend to ask me; “Do you shop every single week? Why is that every time i see you, you’re wearing something new?” Well to tell you the truth i have a tight budget for clothes and because of that, it forces me to be creative with my outfits and to mix and match in every way i can. So if you’re a curvy gal on a budget like me why not get creative with what you have.
The key is to try and error and get lotsa inspirations from either from magazines, instagram, pinterest or even by watching people on the streets.
For this particular outfit, there are 3 layers to it.
A spaghetti strap camisole,
A cardigan &
A cropped halter top Continue Reading

Anyone else having trouble finding tea length dresses (nice ones!) here in Malaysia? I know i am… To be honest, there’s not many nice ones available in stores and if there are, it’ll probably cost you a bomb! So i’ve been doing some research and i came across a website called Dress Lily. Firstly there’s the word ‘dress’ there and secondly it has my name, so of course i was bound to look through the site.. And YES! They do have some great choices for tea length dresses plus they ship to Malaysia too!
Here are some of my favourites:
This is my absolute favourite, why? It ticks all of my boxes;
- It’s a V-neck – V necks in general are flattering for plus size women, it elongates the neck makes you look slimmer.
- 3/4 length sleeves- I don’t like long sleeves that that all the way to your wrist and i’m not really a fan of short sleeves, so this is just perfect!
- It’s an A-line dress – A-line dresses is one of the most flattering cuts for any shape or size. It works well for wider hips or adds a shape for someone like me who has quite a straight figure.
- Black based, but not boring– i’m not sure if you’ve notice but a lot of my clothes are black based with a pop of colour. That’s just me i guess.
- It comes with a belt– Great for accentuating your waist line and adds a pretty detail to the dress.

Being a new mum isn’t an easy task. Learning what works and what doesn’t with your baby happens almost every month especially in the first year. My baby is 9 month old and even now i’m still learning and trying things out. Ever since he was a few weeks old we noticed that he has sensitive skin. He was diagnosed with eczema, which means we need to take extra good care of skin by eliminating things that have fragrance, paraben, alcohol, lanolin and the list goes on. It is also important to constantly keep his skin moisturized at all times to keep his eczema at bay.
Luckily for us, it seems that he has grown out of it, but we can never be too sure. So till this day i ensure that his care products are as natural as possible and that his skin is constantly moisturized. So when i came across a brand called Offspring on facebook who strives to be one of the safest, most natural and most nurturing personal care products, i jumped on the band wagon and was interested to try them out. So for all the worried mummies and daddies out there, here’s a personal review of what i think of their products, and i hope it helps! Continue Reading
Not so long ago, i discovered a site called Rosegal that carries plus sizes and ships to Malaysia. You can check out my previous article here. They have a lot of choices to choose from and their designs are up to date, but of course it’s based overseas so i was abit unsure about the quality and their delivery service. While doing some research i actually came across some really bad reviews talking about the product received not being like the picture and that their delivery service is really bad. Some also complaint about their customer service being terrible. But all of that was a few years back and there were not many recent reviews. So, i decided to order 2 tops anyway.
Mind you these 2 tops are not that cheap! The Black Mesh Embroidered top costs around RM68 while the Floral Cami top costs about RM74 after conversion, so i was a bit nervous about the quality that i will be getting. Continue Reading

It may be summer in the US, but in Malaysia, it’s summer all year round, which means now is a great time to take advantage of all the summer clothes and sales. I recently found this new website called Rosegal that sell a wide option of beautiful summer dresses and they have PLUS SIZES too! I must say that the prices are not bad at all, but i’m not so sure about the quality, so i’m going to try purchasing a few stuff and i’ll write a review once i’ve received it.
In the mean time, you just gotta feast your eyes on these beautiful summer dresses! And all of them featured here go up to a size US 22!
The flowyness of this dress and the geometric prints and colour combination is an absolute love for me! You can even layer it and wear a t-shirt inside and you’ll have a different look. Continue Reading

I’ve always loved cameras, vintage cameras especially- even though i some of them don’t produce films to shoot anymore. So when i got the chance to review the new instax Square SQ10 i was ultra excited. Why? Because its a hybrid of instant print and digital technologies. So let me tell you first hand, that i personally love the camera. I know there are some people who think that it kind of takes out the fun of an instant printing camera, but for me, i prefer being able to edit and print the photo when i think it’s ready to be printed.
So why do i love it? Continue Reading
