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.
Cardigan & Leggings: South (via Very)
Belt: Blogger Marketplace
Shoes: Primark
Sunglasses: Spitalfields Market

I didn’t want to darken the dress at all so instead of my usual black leggings I went for a chocolate brown, and I was a little surprised at just how well it worked. I also chose a light sand cardigan and a simple but cute pink belt to complete the look.

No outfit is totally complete without a bag and this is the best bag ever! I saw this in Paperchase (my addition to Paperchase is not helped by there being a massive store right by my work!) and grabbed it immediately. When the weather gets warmer I hate carrying around big bulky bags and always venture out with a tote or shopper bag instead; plus you can always find such great, colourful designs to perfectly match your outfit.

The dress is so light and airy which is again perfect for this time of year and the elasticated waist makes the dress so comfy to wear. Another great thing is the Peter Pan collar, I adore dresses with a Peter Pan collar, it gives a cute vintage look and is such a lovely accent on the dress.

Seriously, go and take a look at the Spring/Summer range at New Look. You’ll struggle not to find something you’ll absolutely fall in love with.

‘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

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
