By Ro Designs giveaway: TAKE TWO

You may remember that I ran a giveaway at the start of the southern hemisphere’s summer, sponsored by the delightful Ro of By Ro Designs. I received a massive 102 entries and the lucky winner was a woman by the name of Haley who lives in Detroit.

Ro would have rathered the winner not have to wait for the snow and ice to melt before wearing her fabulous cossie so, bless her heart, she suggested another giveaway… this time, only open to Aussies and Kiwis.

This calls for more sparkle text.

Wonderful.

Second verse, same as the first: You can win either the monokini in black – Ro’s most popular style – or the two piece ruffle bikini in red/white polka dots, both in size 1X to 5X.

SIZE CHART:
1X: Measurements (inches) 44-47/35-38/46-49
2X: Measurements (inches) 48-51/39-42/50-53
3X: Measurements (inches) 52-55/43-46/54-57
4X: Measurements (inches) 56-59/47-50/58-61
5X: Measurements (inches) 60-63/51-54/62-65

By Ro Designs giveaway!

I received such an amazing response to my swimsuit post, Two Piece Swimsuit, Two Middle Fingers. It’s still being linked here and there and I’m still getting comments on it every so often. Who knew that my getting my kit off would make such an impact? (I did, because I’m lush.)

One very cool result of that post is that Ro of By Ro Designs saw I had linked to her shop and has kindly offered to sponsor a Corpulent giveaway! Sorry, that’s not quite enough fanfare.

GIVEAWAY!

That’s better. There ain’t no party like a sparkle text party.

You can win either the monokini in black – Ro’s most popular style – or the two piece ruffle bikini in red/white polka dots, both in size 1X to 5X.

OoTD No. 10 – I Love Colours

Photobucket

Sydney loves colours too. The Opera House is being lit up every night as part of the Vivid Festival.

I’ve been in love with We Love Colors tights since stumbling upon their site last year; to date I’ve bought nine pairs in black, white, scarlet, turquoise, yellow, royal blue and violet. So when We Love Colors contacted me for a review, I jumped at the chance.

We Love Colors offered to send me a new pair to review so I decided to try the pair I’ve been a bit apprehensive about: the splash footless tights in #7001. Lord knows why I was apprehensive about them, as the mess of colour is right up my alley. Sydney has been cold (well, cold by Sydney standards) and rainy so I decided the pair the tights with my snugly woollen jumper dress.

It’s hard enough to find coloured tights in Sydney (Australia tends to be a bit conservative when it comes to fashion), let alone in plus sizes, so We Love Colors is solid gold for me. The size chart is very reliable; I am 5’8″ and 210 pounds so I wear the C/D in the plus size range. The tights have an extra panel at the back and this is a godsend for the well-endowed in the arse area (like myself). They come up extremely high – mine go all the way up to my bust – which prevents them slipping down over belly rolls and completely eliminates muffin top. However, you must buy the nylon/lycra blend; the cheaper, nylon only pairs sag around the ankles and knees.

How sweet is this necklace? The Boyfriend got it for me for my birthday. He's a keeper.

If you look closely, you'll see the hole in the 'a' has been replaced by a tiny cupcake. Awesome.

Chickety check my new necklace!

It’s a custom made necklace by a lovely Kiwi girl called Kim Laurenson (always happy to support a fellow antipodean). She has an etsy store and a fantastic blog, both by the name of Cupcakes and Mace.

I am in love with this thing and can’t wait to wear it out. No, you cannot borrow it.
