Another one leaves the UK shores


Hi guys,

This outfit is one from a little while back. My dear friend, Nadia, is Abu Dhabi bound with her husband, to continue to be a teacher. It’s a really exciting time for her and although I would do exactly the same if I had an opportunity like that, I’m a selfish pixie and want her to stay here!

Anyways, we had a farewell dinner for her and this is what I wore. I’m finding myself having moments where black is my weapon of choice – it doesn’t happen often, but I love this Anna Scholz dress with its gorgeous gold bird design. I kept the gold theme going with the belt and sandals. The sun was playing peek-a-boo while taking these pics, which is why I had to do a headless close-up of the print:

Dress: Anna Scholz (via Simply Be)
Belt: Vintage
Cardigan: South (via Very)
Sandals: Dorothy Perkins
Sunglasses: Spitalfields Market


Pretty birds :)

I also wanted to say thanks to everyone who commented via the blog, Twitter or email in regards to my last post. I’m never usually that personally with my blog, but I felt it was really important to tell my story and have others know there is light at the end of the tunnel. The reaction I got was more than I could have ever hoped for, and I’ve gained a few pen pals (or email pals, this is 2013 don’t ya know) as a result. It really was wonderful to have so many people reach out to me. Huge thanks!

‘til next time!


Love and hugs,
Isha

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

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
