Peach Perfect

On one of the hottest days of the year you really need to wear as little as possible; but since walking around naked in public may be frowned upon, you instead need to wear something that will keep you cool and happy. 

I knew that I would be out all day with work and then a trip to the theatre, and as someone who absolutely loathes the heat I had to pick not only the right outfit but also the right shades to wear. I'm not one to wear too many dark shades at the best of times but darker shades genuinely do attract the sun, so I flicked through my clothes until I found the perfect combination.
Maxi Skirt: Dorothy Perkins
Top: New Look
Cardigan: South (via Very)
Sandals: Primark
Sunglasses: Dorothy Perkins
Bag: Paperchase
Unfortunately, none of these items are avail ale anymore due to how long ago I purchased them, but you can see why I would pick it to repel the sun - light colours, airy skirt and few layers. I love maxi skirts and dresses so was happy to snap this up when I saw it in Dorothy Perkins. There were a few colours to choose from but I don't really have anything peach in my wardrobe so this gem was a welcomed addition. The top was a random New Look find while I had time to spare in Brixton. This top was in the Spring collection a few months ago and I thought it would be quite versatile with the array of skirts I have, and I love how this look came together. 
I wore this for dinner and theatre fun times to see 1984. I've read the book quite a few times over and the word classic gets bounced around so much with so many things, but 1984 is without doubt one of the best prices of literature I have ever read. I missed the first round of theatre dates but was excited to see it had come back to the stage. Although I was worried it wouldn't live up to the book (and in truth, it would have been impossible to do so), I really enjoyed it.....well, not sure enjoy is the right word as if you've read the book you know how incredibly tense and alarming it is, but I thought they did a great job bringing it to the stage. 

It was such a fun day and made even better because I wasn't sweltering in the heat. 

'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

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
