If the shoe fits…

Call me shallow, but as beautiful as I find the changing seasons, it is to the catwalk and the new seasons collections that I look to before pausing to take in the beauty of a frosty morning or a spring bloom.  Nature does it all so well, the rich autumnal colours and the bright hues of spring, it looks almost effortless year after year.  But it’s to the overflowing racks of gorgeous garments and fabulous footwear that I turn my attention when I want to be wowed by what’s available for us mere mortals to declare our intent for the […]

Fun ways to change up your look

There are so many reasons that I love beauty and fashion that they are just to innumerable to list, but if I did the sheer amount of different ways to change up your look would have to be one of them.  I get bored with my toothpaste before I’ve even finished the tube, why would I want to keep my look the same each day?  There are so many little things I love to tinker and play with, some obvious and some a little less obvious.  Here, in no particular order, are some of my fave fun & funky ways […]

Wear what you want

Boobs AND legs out

Last month, an article listed all of the items of clothing were told not to wear in 2015.  The list was pretty exhaustive and included the majority of things you’d find in your average girls wardrobe.  This prompted Simply Be to launch their ‘Wear what you want’ campaign.  Why should any of us, fat of thin, short or tall, be told what we can and should wear?  I myself wear what I want and employ a swift two fingers up to anyone who would say that I can’t or shouldn’t.  Here are some of my 2015 fashion choices. Go bright […]

Step into spring – Mens Footwear

We’re balls deep in January and Christmas feels like it was 1000 years away.  The weather can’t quite make its mind up and those back to work blues won’t quite shift.  Instead of spending six weeks trying to make your new years resolutions stick before giving up and spending a full weekend binging on wine and take-aways, hows about you join me in my favourite pastime – SHOPPING! Whether it’s for myself or others I just love to shop, especially when it’s fashion related.  I collabed with family members to get him a kick ass wardrobe for Christmas, and with […]

Plus Size Awards 2015

As a blogger with a lot of passion but no real ‘niche’, I have the privilege of chatting and socialising with many groups of bloggers representing many different genres.  Each has its own charms, but I have to put my hands up and say that the plus size bloggers I have met are amongst some of the most genuine, least competitive and most supportive bunch out there.  The rivalries, cattiness and disagreements that can be an unfortunate part of a pastime beloved by so many are virtually a non issue within the plus size community.  I have a few theories […]

Kylie Jenner shameless and ableist wheelchair stunt

On International Disability Day, I really thought that the last thing I would be writing about would be the Kardashian/Jenner family.  I’ll confess that when I first heard about them, I thought the show was a Star Trek spin off (I’m totally serious – high five if you even understand that one).  The whole family have arguably gone on to shape makeup and fashion styles and trends more than any other in the last few years.  They are the reason that Mac is consistently sold out of brown lipstick and they are well aware of their status as style icons.

Enhance the UK & Scope Exhibition: Normalising Disability

In between days in bed, I’ve had the opportunity to go to some great places and catch up with some amazing friends.  Last Wednesday I went to an exhibition at the Gherkin in the heart of London.  On show, both in photo form and in person, were some breathtaking individuals who all have disabilities of one form or another.  In between the wine, chatter and nibbles were some very important messages from Enhance the UK and Scope, two top UK charities whose main aim is to normalise disability through education and information, for those with disabilities and those without. The […]

OOTD pinup girl plus size citrus splendour

Todays OOTD is a little slice of heaven in what’s been a pretty wet August so far.  This fresh and fabulous dress pretty much speaks for itself, so without any further ado: The skirt is beautifully full, I didn’t even need a petticoat underneath for a stunningly fanned skirt which completely covered the chair I was sitting on.  Even though we had sun when I took this pic, I still took precautions with a cute brolly.  Really, I just love accessories.  The accessories I wore with this dress really are good enough to eat.  My hair is part home grown, […]
