‘Gangster Squad’ Girl Date!

Hi guys,

It's been a little while since I've blogged and I must apologise.

I just had the worst week last week, so wasn't overly concerned with blogging. I'm feeling a lot better though and hope to be back to my best in no time. :)

Tonight was a thrill because not only did I get to see one of my best friends, Rosie, I also got to spend a few hours with my movie husband - Ryan Gosling! Anyone who has had the misfortune of meeting me, will no doubt vouch to being talked at, at length, about Ryan Gosling (sorry folks); so when his new movie 'Gangster Squad' came out, I of course had to check it out. So myself and lovely Rosie, had dinner, then made our way to the cinema.

I must admit, I wasn't expecting to like it as much as I did. I'm not really one for Gangster/Mob movies (I could quite possible scratch your eyes out if you bring anything of that ilk, near me), but I really enjoyed it. The fact that the movie has a dream cast, probably helped too though: Ryan Gosling, Sean Penn (one of my favourite actors ever!), Josh Brolin and Nick Nolte. I would definitely recommend it if you like any of these actors. :)

So, this is what I wore. I wanted to dress a little fancy as I've been feeling so crap, and a pretty dress always does the trick! Because it's so busy, I wanted to keep everything else super simple – it’ll be fab in the summer too! :

Dress: Luxe
Vest: M&S
Belt: Dorothy Perkins
Cardigan: South (via Very)
Tights: Boots

Oh, and because I'm an odd child, I thought it would be fun to add a couple of out-takes - the wind was not friendly today:

This was not the desired look!

Myself and Soph became a little hysterical :/

Hope all is well in your worlds - speak soon!

Love and hugs,

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
