More Lifestyle/Commentary posts


I’ve always wanted this blog to be more than just my fashion style. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with that, but there’s too much for me talk about, too much that I think about for this to be just about the clothes I wear.

I read @misscharl’s blog a lot and I love it! She is so honest and open with her readers. There is no pretense, no cover-up. When she writes a personal post, that is exactly what it is. I respect anyone who chooses not to fall into the “look at my life and how perfect it is – aren’t you jealous? Yeah, you’re jealous!!” trap. It’s a trap I think we have all been guilty of falling into at some point. As a reader and as someone who genuinely adores sitting down and getting to know people, what I want is honesty, what I want is realness and that’s what I’m going to try and incorporate in this blog.

I also love to write. I write ALL. THE. TIME. I love narrative, commentary, and analysis and enjoy pushing my mind to think outside the box - to challenge my own way of thinking about things. I don’t want people to just agree with me, I want to have a discussion. I was looking back at my blog entries and realised that I have actually been quite sneaky at adding the odd lifestyle/commentary post. Some have been frivolous, but others have been a little more serious. Here are the “lifestyle” posts I’ve written thus far (in date order)…

So I hope you guys enjoy the new stuff on the blog. I’m really looking forward to sharing more with you and being less afraid to be more expansive.

Love and hugs,

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

Like Royalty

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
