Leopard Print - It's In!

I have never been a massive fan of leopard print but in the past, colours were even a push when it came to my wardrobe. If you have been avoiding all shopping or anything to do with fashion this season, you would have seen the array of leopard print items available. I am now majorly in love and feel myself constantly being drawn to anything donning the print in any store.

Leopard Loafers - Target
My first purchase were these super comfy and warm loafers and they got a mixed reaction but I love them and will be great in winter.

Charlie Brown Hangbag
Then I was lucky enough to be sent this handbag for my birthday this month from my Aunty in Perth. I love it and it fits heaps of stuff in it.

Then I tried on this gorgeous coat in Myer and although I didnt purchase it (mainly because of the price) I often think I should go back and snap it up before I miss out. The photo's don't do it justice!

And this is a recent online purchase from EBay that is still to arrive. Waiting for something to arrive is the hardest part of online shopping.

So although it's only a collection in progress, i think i'm well on my way to a fashion obsession.

Flemington Races

Last Saturday was a get together with some friends from work, one of my besties and some lovely new friends. We headed to Flemington Race course on what seemed to be the day of rain. Luckily we had guest passes for the members so we were indoors.

This is me with 2 girlfriends from work.
What I'm wearing my (not the best pic)
DRESS - ASOS CURVE Vest Dress With Puffball Skirt in Black
BELT - Hot Pink Leather Belt - Old (no sure where I got it)
JACKET - Torrid
NECKLACE - Sportsgirl

These are from Famous Footwear and although they were a bargain, look fabulous and they were super comfy when i put them on, I was crippled by the end of the day. I will have to keep them for occasions when I'll mostly be sitting!

Unfortunately, we didn't win big on the horse racing but we did have a great day with wine, chatting and lots of laughter. We were definitely the loudest group there... 
This is a pic of the Gorgeous Ken and Andy, my new Fabulous friends.
Me and one of my closest friends. Was so happy to have her here for the day from Perth

Getting Late in the day... Lots of group photos, but not many good ones!

Unfortunately, the bad news for the day was me losing my favourite Amber ring when I left it in the toilets after taking it off to wash my hands. The cleaner aparrently found it but decided it would be best to leave it there. Unfortunately, someone else then got to it before I realised it was gone! Now I'm saving to replace it!

Today was a Family get together for E's family, for E's Dad's Birthday. Was a great evening with drinks, pizza and good conversation!

Since I had recently attended a cupcake making course, instead of the usual birthday cake we decided I would make cupcakes! Now I am not a novice baker when it comes to a packet mix, but this was the first time I had made them from scratch! And making them for an occasion, I probably got myself worked up more than I should have! There was flour and sugar strewn from 1 end of the kitchen to the other but we got there in the end.

Turns out I did a pretty good job, and from all accounts they were well received. Definitely not many leftover.

I made 2 different recipes. Vanilla choc chip with buttercream icing and carrot cake with walnut and sultana cupcakes with cream cheese icing. They were delicious.

Check them out!

Where have I been?

Hi There,

I guess 5 and a bit months is way too long to write a new post if I have any chance of developing any followers! I have been a little scared of pouring all my time into a blog that no one reads but am setting myself a goal of giving it a red hot go!

What better than to share pics of my amazing Valentine's Day flowers I came home to on Tuesday Feb 14, 2012.

My Bf, E and I have been dating for nearly 2 years and have been living together for over 1 year.

We had briefly discussed Vday a week or so before and decided that since our '2 year Anniversary was only a week after, we would not give in to all the media hype that is Valentine's Day! Now in saying this, I still had it in the back of my mind that I might get the call from Reception to come and collect a large floral arrangement that was taking up most of the front desk.

Unfortunately I went home empty hand but to my surprise, I walked in my house to the most gorgeous flower arrangement I have ever received! I was so wrapped!

Every year (even when I was single) i would say that I wasn't bothered about the most loved up day of the year... But let's be honest, receiving flowers from someone you care a lot about is a wonderful feeling!

Did you receive a gift from a loved one? Do you not celebrate Valentine's Day?

Until next time, Stay Sparkly!! X x

Introducing Me

Hi Everyone,

I hope you enjoy reading my blog as much as I hope to enjoy writing it. I have spent months reading blogs about plus size fashion and fashion in general and I wanted to have a go myself.

I'll start by introducing myself. My name is Katy and I am a 27 year old plus size girl with a plus size personality to match. I am often described as the loud one of my friends and always cracking a joke. I find that if I am wearing something that I really love, I am more confident and in a nutshell, happier! Other bloggers I have read have inspired me to think outside the plain, blend into the background look and push the boundaries of fashion to stand up and be counted.

I also love a bargain. I get no greater joy than finding something that I must have and IT'S ON SALE!

So this is me. I was trying on all my dresses for a party I was going to a while ago so my hair and makeup aren't done.
