Snug, as a Bug, in a Rug


I absolutely love the Autumn/ Winter months, but being a naturally hot person often means and that I'm walking around in cardigans way into December. Coats have always made me a sweaty mess and standard cardigans leave me feeling overly chilly, so I needed to find a healthy medium. 

I visited Next a good few months back during the slow transition between Summer and Autumn, and tried on a few coats that caught my eye. Unfortunately, I could already feel the sweats coming on so I started trudging out of the store, ruing my high body temperature, before bumping into this blanket wrap. I tried it on, loved it, and made a mental note for the Autumn/ Winter transition. Eventually, I did order this gorgeous wrap and I haven't looked back. 
Blanket Wrap: Next
The wrap is mainly made out of Polysester (56%), so is a lot lighter than a standard coat would be. I'm able to feel nice and warm without baking, and the black and white woven pattern means it goes with literally everything in my wardrobe. It's incredibly versatile and can be wrapped in three different ways, but this is my favourite - lightly wrapped with the belt to show off my waist. It's easily dressed up or down and I've done both with great success. Nope, you don't have to be unstylish to be warm. I'm as snug, as a bug, in a rug. 

'til next time!


Love and hugs,

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

When a photo shoot is about more than just the pictures

There have been a few things that have made the last year and a bit, difficult. I have a life mantra: keep the legs pumping. This has been my life philosophy for as long as I can remember and it’s what has kept my head above water at the worst times. I am well aware that anything I might be going through is nothing in comparison to some others, so I have always tried to suppress whatever has been going on, believing that my “trivialities” were not worth worrying about or bugging other people with. It is only until very recently I have actually realised that my feelings are worthy of acknowledgment, that I have every right to be upset about things, and I was doing myself more damage by pretending I was ok when I wasn’t. I have Sian and a cluster of other wonderful friends to thank for this epiphany. They have no idea (until now, I guess) what their encouragement for me to feel what I was feeling and not feeling guilty about it, was ok, means – I’m so grateful to them fo
