Hi guys! I hope you’re all well and enjoying this sudden sunshine we are experiencing of late. I had a four day weekend to enjoy and on Friday, I met up with the lovely Charlotte  and we heading to one of our favourite places to go – Shoredtich. I love the street art there and I always seem to find somewhere new to explore and find other wonders. It was thankfully a dry day so we took the opportunity to take some outfit pictures next to some cool art. This dress is from Simply Be and I love it. If you read my Dress in Bloom post, I talked about putting a load of items into my virtual shopping bag before stripping it back to my favourites, and this was another of those items. It’s the print and the scooped hem that does it for me, the birds are such gorgeously bright colours against the darkness of the blue, and it works so well. I had this outfit in mind for summer but I think this looks great with a pair of leggings and ankle boots. Dress: Simply Be Cardi

Blanket of Flowers

Plus Size ranges are getting better and better which is such great news for us ladies who love fabulous clothes. When New Look got in touch with me about showcasing an item from their new Inspire Spring/Summer range, I didn't hesitate and chose this ‘screams summer’ dress to show off in. It is so bright and colourful, with red being the base and a shower of gorgeous flowers on top, it’s ideal for sunshine and the sun was shining bright on the day I wore this.

I also chose a light sand cardigan and a simple but cute pink belt to complete the look. Closeup of allll the flowers  No outfit is totally complete without a bag and this is the best

Dress In Bloom

I ordered this dress on the very night I received the Spring/Summer catalogue from Simply Be (I'm an impatient girl!). When I looked through the catalogue, there were many items I immediately put into my virtual shopping bag; I then took a hold of myself and stripped the bag back to the initial items that made my heart leap, and this dress was one of those items. The cut and shape is 50s vintage inspired and the gorgeous print pays homage to the prints of old, I loved it and had to have it. It's also a great transitional dress from winter with tights and heels or flats, into Spring/Summer with bare legs and a cute pair of sandals. This is my second Joe Brown dress and they can both be worn all year round.

Swinging both ways!

I know some of you may think a dress is just a dress, but the thing I love so much about swing dresses is how incredibly versatile they are. You can literally change your look with as little as two items, from comfy to glam. I thought I'd show you how I dress for everyday and how I dress for a special occasion using one dress. Of course I turn to my ever trusted Lady Vintage London . I bought this dress as a pre Christmas treat and has been in my wardrobe just begging to be worn. The dress is an eggshell colour with the most beautiful black printed flowers. I first wore this for a normal day at work, and later went onto drinks with a few friends. I didn't want to be overly dressy so just paired it with a simple cardigan, tights, and a pair of cute flats. I think this looks great, it says effort but without being over the top. This would also work really well with ankle boots.   Dress: Lady Vintage London Cardigan: South (via Very ) Belt: Blogger

Extract the Glory

One of the many things I love about my fellow psbloggers are their recommendations. I'm always on the lookout for new things to try to keep my skin looking healthy, and after the brutal winter I definitely felt like I needed an all over body cleanse. Enter the gorgeous Naomi . Naomi tweeted about a body scrub she had tried and how it did absolute wonders, and this body scrub was Soap and Glorys' Pulp Friction . It sounded like the very thing I was looking for so thought I'd give it a try. Just look at some of the ingredients: Fig powder, pumice, peppermint oil, lemonade tree liquid, orange waterjuice and (A, C & E) vitaminballs - I just knew this would do my skin the world of good and couldn't wait to try it! The scrub has little particles in it to really help you get rid of the residue normal soap doesn't, but it's lovely and foamy so doesn't feel rough at all (we've all tried those, right?! Where you literally feel like you'
