Day #20!! We’re very close to meeting our goal, I hope you can help with the final push! I am still doing an #AirplaneADay! Care to join me? And please Dressember ladies you have to check out Nuu-Muu because their dresses are what Dressember is all about, no fast fashion here!

We have lots of Donor Draws and fun left to have!:-)


We’re up to Day #18 and I’m so close to my personal goal, thank you, everybody! We’ve had our Sunday Donor Draw and Jan Schumer won a fab puzzle! Yay!


Hurray! @dressember Day #15 – my lovely Sponsors Nuu-Muu have sent me the most fab dress!! Please check them out, they are so amazing and I love their slogan:

“We believe in strong girls and women.

We believe in real bodies and real friends.

We believe in trying really, really hard.

We believe in having fun along the way.”

Please show them some love, I expect I can do just about anything in this dress,

it is already my favourite! xoxox

A funny outtake from today and an airplane that was apparently flying in the fog – still at it on Day #14 and I saw that my awesome sponsor dress has finally, after 4 days, been released from customs!! I can’t wait to show it off!!

It’s not too late to donate, we still have lots of fun left!:-)


Happiness is @Dressmeber Day #13! Hurray I finally found that my lovely sponsorship gift from Nuu-Muu has been sitting in customs for 4 days ;-( – hopefully here soon, and thank goodness I didn’t give away ALL my dresses last year! lol. #AirplaneADay

Hope you’ll join me, in wearing a dress/tie or bowtie, donating (lots of incentives and giveaways!) and even by just spreading the word about modern day slavery. It comes in all shapes and sizes, and we CAN do something about it, so let’s.

Dressember Day #12! Today I realized that it’s much easier to wear a dress when it’s not 15 below:-)! I also realized that my gimpy shoulder makes me look hunch back lol – Oh well, it’s getting there!

I’m so close to my personal goal you guys – do you know if 13 of you chipped in 10$ I would be there, plus I could send you a fancy gift from me AND we’d all be aiding in the rescue and recovery of somebody in need! I know we can do it!!#AirplaneADay
