Oh La La Curves!

Keep up the amazing work ladies ♥

And now to regular Weesha news 🙂

a) we’re going through a rough time but we’re warriors, we’ll cope. I just might not be blogging as often. Ampersand Style needs to launch very, very soon, got bills to pay!

b) Speaking of which, we received our first sample bag today! The boyf designed it- it’s got the ampersand symbol and his favourite font helvetica. I think it’s adorable, and I love big bags because I would be stranded without them. I would love to hear what you think, feedback is important y’know?



I’ll upload better pictures I promise, probably with an OOTD in daylight. I’m going to use it everywhere to test quality- Let’s see if it’s laptop proof, sunlight/ spillage proof and of course, CAT PROOF (Is anything cat proof?!)

c) I wore my leopard print jeans today, I’m still madly in love with them 🙂



And ofcourse, the kittehs have to get in on the photo action. Tsk. 

d) The Facebook, Please stop permitting fat hatred group shared this article in the Huffington Post. Please check it out and feel free to comment and teach ignorant people a thing or two. Please don’t let  the moronic comments of some people get you down, people suck remember?

    Also, when I was on my last placement (mental health nursing student, I was last on an in-patient Psych ward) there was a lady who would always come up to me, hug me and call me a warriors. We were warriors together, I was helping her get well, she was fighting her way through her illness. Together, as both individually strong women with our own problems we were warriors.
    I believe she's being managed in the community now. We may not always show our weaknesses, but we are all fighting.

  • OMG I love that bag so much!!!! I love the colors!
