Westbourne Stall day

Hi guys!

Last weekend, I headed to the Westbourne Summer Festival to help my friend with her stall. Shel makes all her own jewellery and I have a few pieces myself! It’s always great to hang with Shel because she is so crazy and funny, so I knew we would have fun – and we did.

Although she makes the jewellery, I’m the one who sells. Whenever she stepped away from the stall, I sold a piece of jewellery. I don’t think she minded all that much, but I guess I have knack for these things, hehe. It’s the same when we have our summer stall in Camden…

Anyways this was what I wore. It was an unbearable 30° so I had to wear something incredibly lightweight. That’s where this gorgeous dress came in. The pattern looks polka dot (which wouldn’t be a shock considering my obsession with polka dots – regular readers will understand ;p), but it’s actually sea shells. There is a close-up of the print, below. It’s a halter neck dress, which I love and is very cute and girly. It does now have me hankering for a red polka dot dress though…

I completed the outfit with a cardigan and the most comfortable sandals. Marks & Spencer have some really great shoes and sandals at the moment, if you’re looking for comfort at really good prices – head there!

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
