My Zombie Weekend Update :)

Published March 4, 2013 by ditsyhaze

Hiya, happy monday!

I was a bit under the weather over the weekend- think pjs and zombie mode on the sofa!

so today, I made the effort to feel pretty and funky, even if it is just to fool myself into thinking I feel better!



Just an easy quick, everyday type look.




I kept myself busy with a few things ,apart from being a mum to two very excitable kids!

Firstly, my delivery arrived from ebay 🙂 LOVE  getting post!

I ordered some studs and bits and bobs to make hair accessories  So even though I felt poo, I customised my new plain hoody!  I’m pleased with how it turned out. Ill show you that soon :)…If ya want ;p

Also, Raven, My nearly 6yr old daughter has been loving drawing with my oil pastels, so last night it inspired me to have  a doodle with those.

I have to say, I enjoyed being creative after so long. There is alot of room for improvement, but it was good to get s tarted. I used to paint and draw all the time, but I never know what to draw and just get that blank paper-stare!

This is one of my doodles;


I cant wait to get started on the hair accessories 🙂

what do you do when you’re feeling creative?

Have a great day, Haziefantazie xxx



Fatshionfebruary the outfits I loved :)

Published March 1, 2013 by ditsyhaze

I have been feeling all bereft. its over 😦 sob…

So I decided to peruse all 200 -plus entries and share with you some of the outfits that I loved 🙂

First, Let me introduce you to the lovely – hellokatiexo

hellokatiexo tumblr_mhts7wX2sI1qg9qxjo1_500

She says about herself;

~My name’s Katie, i’m 22, from New York and i’m happily taken. I like cupcakes, baking, thrifting, dresses, lipstick, cats, pugs, owls, Hello Kitty, Brand New, and Parks and Recreation. ♥~

I love the colours she puts together and the Kitschy-ness of her look and her home! I have a soft spot for owls 🙂 …but back to the clothes! I just love her bold style, bettie bangs and her attention to detail 🙂

Next I chose to show you –

Her style is edgy and fun and fearless;


~29. Finnish. Fat and nerdy.

Things you’ll see here: Stuff that has to do with fatshion, body politics, identity politics and fat activism. My face and outfits. Things I find funny. Cute animals. 90s nostalgia. Occasional fandom/geek/gamer stuff.~

I am yet to add a leather (or pleather more like!) jacket to my wardrobe, but it is something I really really want! so This chromatic ensemble speaks volumes to me.



~Hi! I’m Laura, a fatshionista currently living in Boston. I started this blog both because I believe in the radical power of fat visibility, and because I love shiny objects.~

That tutu, boots and hairband…awesome! serious wardrobe envy from these ladies!

And lastly, and who I believe is a strong contender;

~I’m a queer poly fattie from NYC who enjoys unicorns and other cute things. I’m still figuring myself out.~

I love the whole, fun, bold, Bright and confident collection. I love stripey legwear, Shiny Doc’s and that cloud patterned dress! wow 😛

This is just a few of the entries this year, I encourage you to go have a look, check out their Tumblrs, and be inspired to wear what ever the hell you feel like!

Have fun, If I can do it, so can you 🙂

Finishing fatshionfeb in my Arse Kicking Boots :D

Published February 28, 2013 by ditsyhaze

Its the last day of Fatshion february! 😦

I wish I had discovered it sooner, I’ve really enjoyed the whole process and it has helped so much with self confidence.

I have also challenged and won the battle against taking silly joke photos as a safety measure. Huzzah!!

so, last day… I felt like revealing the real, true, everyday me 🙂

dum dum duuuuum!




This is how you would find me on an average, popping to the shops, doing the school run kind-of day.

The hoody, I made a year or so ago. It is a plain cheap h&m hoodie that I customised with sfety pins and an old Opeth t-shirt. I loved the artwork on the shirt, but it just never fit me well, so i chopped it up!

The bottle green vest is from new look, Its a bubble hem vest and i love the style, so i have it in black, blue and green as they are cheap!

My leggings as always are from sainsbury’s. they do a two for £10 pack and they are good quality, so I have found them to be the best value.

Skirt was an ebay find, Its actually a petticoat that comes with a corset, but meh! I wear it out n about 😛

and my big ass kicking boots are Osago. They are super comfy and keep my feet warm. and I can walk through good squishy mud puddles!

so that’s me 🙂

I hope you have enjoyed the february journey, let me know what kind of things you would like me to blog about now that fatshionfeb is over 🙂

Lots of love, Haziefantazie xxx

Fatshion feb OOTD 27th feb :) *a pop of pink*

Published February 27, 2013 by ditsyhaze





Hiya 🙂

Today most of my outfit is from Evans, which is strange for me!

Most of the time, Evans makes me angry 😛

Everything has a mumsy-ness to it. all scoopnecks, flowy fabrics and dodgy embellishments  and then they charge a fecking fortune for the displeasure of having to buy from them because they are the only high street plus size place available!- Childhood trauma moment!!

( calm down Haze! )

Ok, so, on this occasion I was pleasantly surprised. I spotted this skater dress on their website in the summer and thought..ooh!? that’s nice!….. and managed to try one on when birthday shopping. and I loved it! so I was a very lucky bunny and my step-mum bought it for me! and the belt, cos it needs it I think!

I’m so glad it was my birthday because even in the sale it was still expensive!

I like this outfit, I like twirling in it 😀 I wore it to a Retro tea – dance type thingy and it was great for a boogie 🙂

The necklaces are from the market and Matalan, earrings £1 from Primark in the sale and shoes are very old from a sale at Evans also!

I suppose the lesson today is not to rule out a shop just because most of it is overpriced and ugly 😛 there’s always the odd item worth grabbing, and sales are your friend!

………….and thank goodness for the internet!!


Have a great day, Haziefantazie xxx

Today was one of those days where I felt like staying in my pajamas, and I came close!

FaTshion February sunday 24th :)

Published February 24, 2013 by ditsyhaze

I’m quite proud of myself today 🙂

I figured out how to use the auto-timer on the camera! 😛 ( I’m not a tech kinda gal, I’m much more a glitter and glue lady!)

Then, I also found a free and rather groovy site called where I was able to make my picture collage, well done me!

so, day 3 of entering the FaTshion feb blog. I feelt a bit of a tit yesterday after I uploaded the photo with the sunglasses on. But then it was there and I just had to deal with it. Like I said in a previous post, Its hard to unlearn old behaviours, and I started to pick at myself with negative thoughts and feeling embarrassed.

So, today I decided not to back down and hide, but to face the insecurities full-on and go for it!

I did my makeup all pretty, and put on my favourite dress from Jordash, and went out to play!


I’m pleased with the outcome and proud of myself for carrying on.

You can see all the entries here-

I hope you are all well and having a happy sunday 🙂

Feb 23rd FaTshion feb entry, Fluffy slippers ahoy!

Published February 23, 2013 by ditsyhaze


Today is a rest day, but I figured, I could still enter!

Yes, the sunglasses are because it is a no makeup day, and because I love them 😛

Have a great day, whatever you are up to 🙂


Taking your health into your own hands is your right! Mentally, physically and spiritually!!
