Summer Time!

Well this is my first proper post in a while, so sorry about that folks. Hello to my new followers, so glad that you guys are enjoying what I’m doing so far- the emails I have been receiving have been so wonderful J

I hope you’ve enjoyed the videos I’ve posted thus far with my Interview Series (page above). I have a couple of people on the horizon too, so watch this space. Sorry I haven’t posted the email interviews just yet; still a few things to sort in this regard and will hopefully start to post them from next week.

I have so many ideas swirling in my head at the moment, some of which I don’t know how to get kicked started, but I will plug away and will of course keep you updated if anything develops.

I haven’t been all there recently, the last two weeks have been quite difficult, and I’ve been doing the old “analysing ones life”. I have a pipe dream to spend a year (or two) in New York. I want to try and get more involved in photography as I’m really rediscovering my love for it after years of abandonment. It would be amazing to take this new love to New York, but I was there earlier this year, and you can’t move a centimeter without bumping into a photo pro.  Anyways, I've started to look into it and it seems quite hard to just up and leave- but where there's a will....

Right, back to business!

You know when you are rummaging through your wardrobe because it is stinking hot outside and you can’t for the life of you find something that doesn’t make you melt due to the unbearable heat? Well I found this lovely summery dress crumpled up on my top shelf. I haven’t worn it since uni (trust me, it was a looong time ago!), and can’t believe I haven’t paid attention to it until now. This is light and airy, and I felt cool all day. I am the WORST when it’s this hot, so to find things that makes me not feel like a lobster is a blessing:

Dress: New Look (ages ago though)
Scarf: Dorothy Perkins
Cardigan: So Fabulous (via Very)
Belt: Camden Market
Legging: Savoir (via Very)
Sunglasses: Dorothy Perkins
Shoes: Dorothy Perkins

*Shout out to the photographer, my lovely friend Soph J

Well I think I’ll leave it there, I’ve gone on a bit :s

‘Til next time folks!


  1. I love the dress it's really cute and the pumps match perfectly xx

  2. Aw, thank you :) I am the devil in disguise when it's really hot- can't handle it at all, so finding things that keep me cool all day is a sigh of relief :) xx

In the blogger world, success is often in reference to money or exposure. Often these two things go hand-in-hand, in that the more exposure you get the more you are in a position to ask to be paid for your work/ name/ face, etc. Blogging has become a business for many and an aspiration to even more, but are we being realistic? Don't get me wrong, I think it's great to have ambition and to work and strive for a goal or goals, but I also think it's important to be realistic with those goals. There are so many factors that come into trying to make a blog a business. For example, bloggers whom have been able to make their blog their sole source of income are often white, slim/ slim passing, a small fat, able-bodied, cis gendered, and/ or with euro-centric beauty. There are of course other examples that correlate, but that's the starting point. Not every blogger is going to fall into that blueprint, nor should we, but unfortunately we have not yet reached a point where s

The plus-size world of the vintage persuasions audibly exclaimed when Georgina Horne of Fuller Figure Fuller Bust , announced a range of fabulous dresses she had designed for  Lady Vintage London , called Lady Voluptuous . There are four styles in total with a variety of colours and patterns, and being a 50s bunny who practically lives in swing dresses, I immediately set eyes on the Cosette , particularly after seeing Lucia in it. WOW, right?! But there was another dress that was catching my eye.....enter, the Medusa. The Medusa is another 50s sensation, but a fitted design. I have been hoarding wiggle/ fitted dresses in one of my two wardrobes for a few months now and realised how much I loved my silhouette after wearing this 'out of comfort zone' dress. I'm naturally an incredibly curvy (I know many hate that term, but I know what I mean) woman, but I have often avoided dresses like this through fear of the VBO; but during my continued journey to self-love a

When a photo shoot is about more than just the pictures

There have been a few things that have made the last year and a bit, difficult. I have a life mantra: keep the legs pumping. This has been my life philosophy for as long as I can remember and it’s what has kept my head above water at the worst times. I am well aware that anything I might be going through is nothing in comparison to some others, so I have always tried to suppress whatever has been going on, believing that my “trivialities” were not worth worrying about or bugging other people with. It is only until very recently I have actually realised that my feelings are worthy of acknowledgment, that I have every right to be upset about things, and I was doing myself more damage by pretending I was ok when I wasn’t. I have Sian and a cluster of other wonderful friends to thank for this epiphany. They have no idea (until now, I guess) what their encouragement for me to feel what I was feeling and not feeling guilty about it, was ok, means – I’m so grateful to them fo
