Be Beautiful, Regardless

This is a video I ran across whilst browsing around YouTube that I had to share with you all today. In this video the founder of IGIGI, Yuliya Raquel. shares her own story of self acceptance, and finding the beauty within herself. It is very thought provoking and puts things into perspective. I urge all women to watch this, whatever size they may be. We all have our insecurities, but are all these insecurities worth the worry and anxiety? Is life all about just trying to be something your are not? Think about it. Appreciate who you are. Appreciate your size, your figure and your individual beauty, and start living today! Watch the video, and you will know what I mean.

Thanks Yuliya for this message!

My First Ever OOTD

Today I thought of posting my first ever OOTD (Outfit Of The Day) post. So this is what I was wearing yesterday actually, which I guess then makes this an OOYD post ;) It’s the lovely Violet Print Wrap Dress from SWAK Designs, which I wore for going out and about for a drink with my hubby.

I will be posting OOTD posts more often, though cannot promise for this to become a daily thing I’m afraid! Way too busy. But I do promise to post more of these, at least weekly.

So what do you think ladies, do you like the dress?

Pink & Black Evans Shoes – My Latest Indulgences

So yesterday I was rummaging through my closet to see if there are some things I should get rid of, but more importantly to see how the evening dresses I have fit me. I have 3 weddings coming up in June you see, so wanted to check whether anything I already have is fitting for these occasions. I know, June is still far far away but don’t you get days when you feel like dressing up just for the sake of it, even if you don’t have anywhere to go?!

So I did find two dresses actually that I had bought on sale from IGIGI which, I haven’t even worn yet! Shock! Horror! Anyway, one is a black velvet dress which is gorgeous and I even have the perfect shoes to wear with it. The other is a stunning green dress, but no shoes to match!

IGIGI Plus Size Evening Dresses

Perfect excuse for shoe shopping isn’t it? So I headed on to Ebay to see whether I can get some Evans shoes at low prices, and I managed! Here is what I got…

The first is a pair for black, high heeled, peep toe shoes, with jewel detail. Got these for only around $16. Steal isn’t it! So this is the one I needed to match the dress. But then I saw another one, in pink, which I just had to have… and so I got…

Black shoes from Evans

This little number right here. Another bargain at only approx $23!

Pink shoes from Evans

I just cannot wait until these arrive!
