Gosh, it’s been quite some time since I’ve done a MFT post. I’ve been a wee bit slack. The life of a busy working Mum and all that. I hope you’ll forgive me.
Kelly Osbourne has just launched her first fashion collection… and it’s fantastic! Stories By Kelly Osbourne is fun, flirty and available in plus sizes. Did ya hear me!? I said PLUS SIZES! She’s designed a collection which is available from size US0 to US26 and she even uses different sized models… sure the models aren’t what I’d consider to be truly plus size, but it’s far more than what some other labels do and at least we get an idea of what each piece looks like on a more curvy body.
I’m loving her first collection! It’s only available through hsn.com and unfortunately they don’t ship to NZ, but you could try a freight forwarder or maybe a kind family member/friend will place an order for you if you just HAVE to have something.
Here are my favourite picks (my absolutely favourite has to be the Union Jack Shirtdress).
Has anyone else used these Hansell’s Soup Mixes? They taste much better than you think they would (in fact you’d swear it wasn’t actually a packet soup), and they’re very economical as one packet, which I’ve bought on special for just $3, makes 1.25 litres of soup! I just take a couple of slices of buttered bread and some soup to work for a super cheap lunch. You can use it as a base and add extra veges, shredded chicken etc, and I’ve heard it works well as a dahl curry by thickening it and serving with rice.
Available in Indian Dahl (my fave), Moroccan Chickpea and Tuscan Bean.
Spring is my favourite time of the year… the days are longer, the blossom tree outside our bedroom blooms and it starts getting warmer. Unfortunately Winter is still teasing us so some days it’s downright freezing!
That’s when a gorgeous merino blanket from OBR Merino would be perfect for cuddling up with. So soft and warm, and of course they’re available in stunning colours. You’ll be using these blankets year round as merino keeps you warm in Winter but it also stays cool in the heat.
Pop over and check out their other merino pieces… including PLUS SIZE clothing! It’s obviously my day for sharing beautiful plus size styles. I have one of their Button Capes (see an outfit post here) and have just received a Curved Hem Top which I’ll be showing off later on.
My last favourite thing this week is a cafe. Beannie Cafe in Petone to be precise. I’m annoyed that I’ve only recently discovered this place as it’s a wee gem. The people are lovely, coffee is great and the food is divine! Today my bestie and I split a Lemon Brioche (OMG so good) and a brownie. Now I’m more than happy to say that I make a mean brownie, but Beannie’s brownie blows mine out of the water!
They have a great selection of counter food but also a pretty extensive menu. My bestie’s ever so slightly addicted to their Eggs Benedict. When you’re next in Petone you have to pop in. You won’t regret it. I promise!
