Polka Dots and Batman!

It's not a title you'd think would necessarily go together, but yes, polka dots and Batman did indeed happen on my latest trip to Nottingham to see the lovely Charlotte. I have talked at length on my blog about how much I love both Nottingham and Charlotte, and in the past I've only headed down for the day. This time, however, I stayed for two days and it was a glorious time.

I love exploring a different part of Nottingham whenever I go back, and this time was no exception because WE WENT TO BATMAN'S HOUSE! This will mean nothing to you if you're not into graphic novels or the Batman franchise headed by Christopher Nolan, but this house is the very one used in Batman Begins. I literally couldn't stop grinning as we walked up the pathway and took many pictures from each and every angle. It's such a breathtaking building; irrespective as to whether or not you like the Batman movies, you can't deny the architecture is simply stunning. I'll only post a couple of pictures of it from two of my favourite angles, but I seriously encourage you to go for a visit when you can and marvel at its beauty.
We walked around the grounds and wandered into the lovely gardens, where I just had to take some outfit pics. I wore my Collectif black and white polka dot dress, with my favourite satchel, and stood in front of the most fitting autumnal setting:




























Dress: Collectif^
Cardigan: H&M
Shoes: Next^
Satchel: Urban Outfitters^
Tights: Boots





























It  was such an awesome time with Charlotte, and keep a lookout for a new outfit post where I'll have my second outfit from my Nottingham visit.

'til next time!

Love and hugs,
Isha xxxx

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

To Be Visible: Why Minorities Are Still Left Out In The Shade

Foreword: This post has been a few months in the making and I actually submitted this as a piece for a magazine; although it wasn't picked up, it was still a topic I very much wanted to discuss. It hadn't been talked about in so long so I wanted to bring it back to the forefront of everyone's mind, but then boom, suddenly everyone was talking and posting about it and I felt a little deflated. I thought about not posting any longer as I felt others would inevitably write the piece better, but then I thought "my opinion is just as valid as others", so here I am contributing my two-cents. Please note that this isn't attacking anyone, but I really think it's important to not be afraid of having uncomfortable conversations like this as it's the only way things will change. This also isn't going to read as a magazine article as I'm not a journalist and thus, do not wrote that way. It's not a style of writing I personally enjoy reading

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
