Electric Run for Breast Cancer Care

So I've only mentioned this once on the blog, but  Electric Run is just over a month away now. Training has been going well and I guess I'm as ready as I'll ever be, and I'm really excited because I get to have one of the best experiences I'm ever going to have, and for charity.  I'm running for Breast Cancer Care and hope to raise £150 for the cause. Breast Cancer Care focus on providing personal and practical care for those affected by breast cancer and aim to give a personable approach to treatment and information. Being from a family where cancer has been quite prominent. I could not think of a more worthy charity to do this run for, and as it's payday, I'm hoping you have a few extra pennies to help me run that little bit further for Breast Cancer Care. Honestly, anything you can donate will be truly appreciated and a huge thanks in advance to those who are able to help. You can check out my page link here .  My next po

A Splash of Colour

It's always a good sign when brands branch out and create a plus size line, but it really can go one of two ways.

I ordered this fab two-piece.  Crop Top: Missguided^ Skirt: Missguided Boots: Simply Be^ Now, the problem with being pixie height is that crop tops are very rarely that. I don't have a long body and thus, crop tops are often mid torso on me. This was the case with Missguided's crop top but I didn't let that deter me as I still think the look works with me tucking the top into the skirt. It gives the illusion of a dress and still looks great with the chunky boots I chose to finish the look off with. Missguided's sizing is very generous and I could have easily sized downed, particularly with the skirt, and being 95% Po

Find It In Everything: Winter 2014/5

As tomorrow marks the official start of Spring, it's time for another ' Find It In Everything '; this time it's the Winter addition. I've really enjoyed taking pictures during the winter months, but spring is so exciting for me as a lover of taking photographs. There is always so much vibrancy, so much colour and cool places to explore as the sun sets a little later, I literally cannot wait to start snapping away. For now, here is a selection of my favourite pictures from this season: 'til next time! Love and hugs,  Isha xxx

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
