I Remember It Well

Summer is now a distant memory, but these photos are filled with happy memories of a day in Nottingham with my dearest Charlotte. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I really love Nottingham. It's only two hours away from London but it feels like a different world. It's a city, but really quaint and quiet compared to London. Myself and Charlotte always have the best time and I seriously need to make plans to visit for longer than a day.

These photos were taken from my last trip during the summer and I love the way Charlotte photographs me. I feel so comfortable with her and our sessions are always filled with laughter.
 



























Skirt: Joy^
Top: Dorothy Perkins^
Cardigan: H&M
Sandals: Dorothy Perkins^
This outfit is a summer's dream: Light colours, airy fabric, fun and whimsical. The skirt is the standout here and I also have it in Navy because why buy a fab skirt in one colour when you can get it in two?! Joy don't do plus size clothes (well, they go up to a size 16), but the skirt has an elasticated waist for ease of wear. It's gorgeously pleated and is perfect for a summer's day like this one. I teamed it with a flower top, thin cardi, and the most spectacular sandals.




























Yes, I was definitely loving this outfit and look forward to my next trip to Nottingham.

'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

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
