UnBop


Hi guys,

I must apologise for not blogging properly for a little while. I’ve been really busy with a few new projects, which is mad fun, but time consuming. More on that later…

On Friday night, myself and the rest of the Curve Social crew, went down to Unskinny Bop. It was so much fun and I’m so grateful to everyone who came down to dance away with Lauren and myself. I didn’t drink as much as I thought I would and will more than make up for it at the next event ;p

I’ve worn this dress before, but this time I dressed it up with the most fab belt and newly purchased shrug. I felt comfortable all night, which will probably sway my views on what to wear at the next event. I had musings of wearing a corset (another new purchase- I have a problem!), but I have the most adorable and fabulously sexy (and comfy) dress that I think I’ll wear instead. Sorry about the lighting, club loos really are not the best place to do a fashion shoot!




Dress: Soho’s Clothing
Petticoat: Soho’s Clothing
Shrug: eBay
Belt: Dorothy Perkins

So along with Curve Social, I’m now also part of the Plus London 3 team! I’m really excited about this and we have so many ideas to make the event one of the best of next year. I used to work in events but I had forgotten in my subsequent move into education, just how much work is involved. I enjoy getting my hands dirty though and I really enjoy sending emails (as my poor partners will testify to :/) - all for the best cause!

So I hope you guys are ready to see and hear from me a lot more- I hope you don’t get sick of me too quickly ;p


‘Til next time!

Success

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

To Be Visible: Why Minorities Are Still Left Out In The Shade

Foreword: This post has been a few months in the making and I actually submitted this as a piece for a magazine; although it wasn't picked up, it was still a topic I very much wanted to discuss. It hadn't been talked about in so long so I wanted to bring it back to the forefront of everyone's mind, but then boom, suddenly everyone was talking and posting about it and I felt a little deflated. I thought about not posting any longer as I felt others would inevitably write the piece better, but then I thought "my opinion is just as valid as others", so here I am contributing my two-cents. Please note that this isn't attacking anyone, but I really think it's important to not be afraid of having uncomfortable conversations like this as it's the only way things will change. This also isn't going to read as a magazine article as I'm not a journalist and thus, do not wrote that way. It's not a style of writing I personally enjoy reading
