Apple Picker

Well, well, well, look who we have here! 

Yep, I know, please feel free to scold me due to my absence. I wish I could say that I was whisked to a far away land by Ry Gosling, but I was instead having a pretty horrid few weeks instead. Everything was getting on top of me with way too much time to think so I haven't been in the best head space. But I'm feeling more and more like myself everyday and what better way to say hello again than with a perfect little apple dress by Hell Bunny....

I first saw this dress at an event I went to about a year or so ago. I made a beeline for it as soon as I saw it because I loved the colour, loved the print, loved the crochet collar, and adored the 40s inspired cut. I had to wait for it though as it wasn't yet available but I snapped it up as soon as I could get my hands on it. 
Dress: Hell Bunny (via Tiger Milly, but only one size now available) 
Cardigan: H&M
Tights: Boots
Shoes: Dorothy Perkins^
The dress is made from Polyester so is really light and a little stretch in the material makes it a great dress to run around in for the day. The print reminds me of my friend, Charlotte who is currently in Nottingham taking the student fashion world by storm - you should check out her design blog to see what she's been up to. The apples look cute, but not too cute as the balance comes from the base blue colour, the scattered flowers and the ivory buttons down the bust.

I wore this to an event with some fellow blogger babes and felt great in it all night. We all had a blast chatting and taking very funny pictures via the photobooth (every event should have a photobooth!). Now the weather is getting better I look forward to heading out in this beaut with cute sandals and a bright red bag. 

'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
