Photoshop fun in the sun!

Hi guys,

Hope you’re all doing fabulously!

Sunday was such a gorgeous day, so I was happy to arrange an outing with the gorgeous Hanna. She so kindly agreed to help me with editing photos, as I’m currently working on something I hope to tell you all about soon. It’s nothing life changing, but just in case it doesn’t happen, I don’t really want to indulge too much. Watch this space….anyways, the workshop went well, and I can’t wait to get to work!

Hanna is also an angel because I was in a really foul mood – people can just be *insert agitated description here*, but she put up with me nonetheless, and took my outfit picture. I have this dress in three colours: Blue, White, and Flower patterned, and it’s perfect for this kind of weather. It’s light, well ventilated and has pockets! I’ve had these dresses for a couple of years now, so you won’t be able to get them, but there are so many lovely summer dresses around you’re bound to kind something similar:

Dress: New Look
Belt: Camden Market
Cardigan: South (via Very)
Leggings: South (via Very)
Shoes: So Fabulous
Sunglasses: Dorothy Perkins

In other news, Plus London have announced where we are hosting our third year – Hoxton Arches! You can see the full post here, but we’re so excited about this space. As soon as we viewed it, we knew it was the perfect place. We cannot wait to give you all the full schedule, but we’re keeping that under our hat…for now! We also have a WordPress and you can see the full team with mini bios, here.

Exciting stuff ahead – you must all come of course!

Love and hugs,


  1. Those shades of blues work really well together - such a summery look!


    1. Thank you! Unfortunately, I was using my crappy iPhone camera, so the colour of the cardigan isn't well shown - it's actually Green, like a really bright Green.

      I'm sure I'll get another chance to show it off again properly though. :) x

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
