Junarose Autumn 2014 Showcase

Last week I was one of the lucky ones to be invited to the Junarose showcase of their Autumn 2014 collection. It was such a lovely, select and intimate event and we were made to feel so at home and welcome by the lovely Junarose team.

As ambassadors of Junarose, Hanna and Becky were there to represent and present the new collection to the attendees and this added to the relaxed atmosphere – having bloggers really know and love the brand is so key to fellow bloggers. They were so incredibly helpful in regards to the sizing, fit and quality of the clothes, and the quality was there for us to see with a beautiful display in the most gorgeous modern/rustic showroom.
Ambassadors: Hanna and Becky

We were so lucky because the samples for the collection had literally just arrived and we were so excited to gush over the items and try things on. This was another wonderful part of the event, being able to try things on for a brand not yet available in stores is a rare luxury for plus size bloggers, and we took full advantage!

The Autumn '14 collection is split into two sections: Rebel and Soft.

Rebel –
Lova Biker Jacket

This selection is based on unleashing your inner rock star. There’s a biker/ PU look with a touch of delicacy in the form of florals that gives such a great balance between hard and soft. There are also wardrobe staples with denim, check detail, and warm red and wine colours.

Soft –
Natalie Is Short Jacket

This selection is based on romance. There are beautiful floaty items here with light blues, lace, jersey and checks with a feminine touch. Rose sequins, animal prints and graphic checks also ironically make this collection perfect for Spring.

The pictures below are a balanced mix of the current SS ’14 and the new Autumn ’14 collections:
Gorgeous colours, prints and patterns <3
I’d like to thank the Junarose team, Hanna and Becky for such a lovely chilled event.

‘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

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
