Going Dotty for Dolly (Pt.2)

Hello folks!

Well summer is well and truly here isn't it?! I'm typing this while congratulating myself for surviving the hottest day of year (so far) and not doing what I wanted to do, which was stay home in my underwear, cursing the sky.

However, hot weather means there is a perfect excuse to bust out some of your best summer dresses, and this 'Penny Full Circle Polka Dot Dress' from Dolly and Dotty is ideal for getting through a hot day. If you didn't catch Pt.1, Dolly and Dotty asked if I would like to review a couple of their dresses, and being a self-confessed polka dot addicted, I fell in love with this gem and couldn't wait to try it on.
Dress: Dolly and Dotty (Very limited sizes available now)*
Cardigan: H&M
Shoes: Dorothy Perkins^
Sunglasses: Spitalfields Market
I don't tend to wear pink, but this dark pink worked with the white polka dots as it broke up the otherwise block colour really well, and the darker shade meant that I didn't look like a grown up 5-year old (even-though that's really what I am!). Like the first dress, I didn't have to size up as the dress is super roomy around the waist and bust, but handily, it came with a matching polka dot belt and plain belt, which is what I decided to use, as again, it helped to break up the pattern a bit.

My only gripe is that the seam on the circle skirt runs right down the front of the dress; although this doesn't ruin the dress, I wish it wasn't showing in such a prominent area. However, it won't stop me from wearing this pink number during the summer, and I look forward to styling it differently the next time I wear it.

'til next time!

Love and hugs,
Isha xxx

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 said…
