Simply Be Wish-list

So, summer is still deciding whether it wants to arrive in London, so I thought while we wait, it would be good to share a few ideas which I think could work for sunning ourselves on the beach.

Simply Be have released a selection of swimwear, and these are some of my favourites:


Swimdresses are a great way to not only get the coverage you may want, but they’re also a great option for during the day. It can be such a hassle having to make multiple changes from beach to street, so having something that works for both occasions is great.

This is lovely. The ruching at the front is good for anyone conscience of their tummy and the bust-line is well sculpted to give support - all the work is done for you with foam fixed cups:

MAGISCULPT Flatter Me Swimdress
Doesn’t this look like a dress you could find on the high street?! That’s what I love about this. The colours are summery but subtle and they’re magic – if you’re slightly more conscience of your mid-section, they have built in powermesh for tummy control!  Another great thing about this particular design is that it comes in a longer length if you’re slightly taller.
I am slightly obsessed with polka dots (which will come as no surprise to people who read my blog regularly), so I instantly feel in love with this when I saw it. The dots are designed on the bust area, and is a halter. Halters are great for anyone wanting that added support and works well for those with a larger bust. It’s simple but with a cute twist:


If you’re looking for something to show off your lovely legs, you won’t go wrong with the following two.

I told you I’m obsessed with polka dots, right?! (haha) This is so perfect. This swimsuit has a full coverage polka dot pattern, which is why I love the breakage over the bust with the stripes and the red stings at either side. The massive plus with this is that it’s underwired – you get fully supported like a regular bra! The straps are also detachable, so you don’t have to worry if you want to sunbathe.

Sea by Melissa Odabash Blouson Swimsuit
This is a swimsuit which could easy be a two-in-one. The top half is a wrap design, which is great for the tummy, with built in foam cups for extra support. All you’d need to do is throw on a pair of shorts or light skirt for a perfect evening outfit! The colour is amazing too- great for the summer months :D

Gossard Superboost Swimsuit
The first thing I’ll say is look at the colours! This swimsuit screams summer and I love the plunge here. There is the option to not have the superboost, but I love the sexy option more ;) This is halter and underwired too – fabulous!

So those are my favourite pieces from the new range from Simply Be – I hope you like my wish-list and I look forward to seeing you all rock your favourite pieces!

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

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
