Posts in Body Shape

The last time I wore pants I was crucified, and rightly so. I looked shocking and it put me off trying pants ever again. BUT here is the deal, I need pants. It is winter in Australia, I am freezing cold, and I am sick of shoving my fat thighs into tights which only gives me a massive muffin top and then pulling the tights up every few minutes so the crotch isn’t at my knees.

I have touched on why I started this blog in the About page and in my initial introduction post, but now I want to get a little deeper. I feel I need to reveal my OLD vs NEW body so you can get a visual on why I am finding dressing so hard.

Today I am just going to use one set of images to show how my body has changed in the past couple of years. Yes, I know a couple of years is a long time, but in realtime this change happened very quickly. The first 20kgs went on within 12 months (secretly I think it was about 8 months but I only bothered to weigh myself after 12 months!). The past year has been a very slow, gradual increase.

To begin, we take a look at my 2009 body shape. Please be aware that these photos were actually taken when I had put on a few kilo’s, aka NOT at my skinniest.

NOTE: Apologies for the crappy photos!

Tangle Teezer and Dessata hairbrushes

Detangling hairbrushes are available from just about everywhere now but when it comes to trusted brands there are a few to choose from. In this post I’ve got Tangle Teezer vs Dessata in a battle of the detangling brushes. Both are priced almost identically (here in Australian anyway) so which brush is worth your dollars?

For this battle I’ve selected the Tangle Teezer The Original to go up against the Dessata Maxi Detangling Brush. I own three Tangle Teezer brushes – The Original, Compact Styler and Aqua Splash – but for this post I’m comparing The Original as it’s the most popular model. Read on to find out which might be the best detangling brush for you.  Continue Reading
