Clothes Swap Swag

The PSBlogger community is a great one. Yes, we all have our own individual styles, but we also have admiration for each-others styles too. Clothes swaps are a wonderful way to expand your wardrobe and maybe take some risks you wouldn’t normally. Another reason I love clothes swaps is being able to meet my fellow bloggers, hang out and veg out.

The lovely Amanda hosted a clothes swap a few months back and I met so many amazing women that day – not to mention the amount of new exciting clothes to take home! One of those items was this gorgeous dress from Wendy. This is my kind of dress; it’s very girly, colourful and can be dressed up or down. It’s not quite my size, but I always use belts to disguise anything too big for my waist (I have to use this technique A LOT!). I completed my outfit with a light cardigan and my new favourite flats! I also brought out one of my hand-made bags, as I’ve been feeling nostalgic about them (I need to get back to making these and the ├╝ber talented, Michelle has offered to help me!).

I wore this for a dinner date with gorgeous Lauren (who also took my pictures – thank you!) and gorgeous Kirsty. A fab dress, two great friends and yummy food make this pixie very happy :)

I used vintage postcards to make my lovely bag :)
Look how cuuuuuuuute!

I have the day off tomorrow which is really cool. I'm heading out to do some shooting and the weather looks like it's going to be perfect for where I'm going. I'll no doubt post some pictures over on my photography blog. I'm going though more photos than I know what to do with at the moment, but I'm currently sticking with the Paris theme....

Oh, and there’s also the small matter of an update from us Plus London ladies. Head to our group page to see the incredible news! 

'til next time.

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
