Bags for life

So my not to secret guilty secret are bags. I love them, I can’t stop buying them and I’m running out of excuses to keep buying them.

But before that happens I’m going to share my latest treats. 

Now as you may or may not know my parents live in France and whenever I visit I’m always mesmerising by the fashion. Now I know they gave many of the same shops as we have here but they obviously have different stock.

Now bags are a different matter. I love the designs in Desigual, they are just different, quirky and I can never just choose one…….. so this time I chose 2

This cute tan and tapestry Boho one, smaller then my usual style but I couldn’t resist


And this super denim one (oh yes and the purse ooooooops)


Every so often I gift my bags to friends who’ve always said they liked them or charity shops but it’s the hardest item of all to give up

Wish me luck

Favourite summer look

Summer, you remember that right? I think we had about a week of it here in the UK. Anyway blessed with a tan from my holiday to Jamaica I attended the wedding, well vow renewal of some old friends. 

I’d had my eye on a maxi dress for some time, just a matter of finding the right one. Then after spotting this beauty on twitter I had to get it from Simply Be


It was perfect, I mean look at it.

The prefect summer dress. Teamed with summer wedges and this gorgeous embroidered bag from New Look.

Wedding outfit complete


All about holding onto those last sunny days………. oh and burgers

Fashion & Me

SO i am plus size, curvy, fat, however you want to term it. Not something I’ve always been happy/ comfortable with, but hey thats life

In an effort to find new ways to be comfortable i treated myself to tickets to The Curve Fashion Festival, this this year held in Liverpool. The main aim of my visit was to check out all plus size brands and ranges who were showcasing their collections. and i wasn’t disappointed.

the room was filled with stands, with collections from  River Island, Simply Be, Navabi,Yours, Gemma Collins etc.

The centre of the room dominated by a catwalk and a how to stage where various events would be show cased during the day

There were also stands show casing independent brands such as Emmy Designs, Miss Beauty Curve and the Plus Size Bridal store Edith & Winston

I had such a great day and treated myself throughly ( reviews and posts to come). it was nice to be able to see the products, try them on and buy without having to order several sizes just to get one that fits. I hope to return next year for more treats

A tale of 2 dresses

So last week saw the outing of 2 new pieces of my wardrobe. 2 new but very different dresses.
The first was a cute little floral dress I’d picked up in an impulsive shopping trip the weekend  before. Teamed up with some old boots and standard a primark leggings I think it still look professional enough for a day at the office

Late that week i tried out another new dress but for an entirely different reason. My netball dress. 
I recently joined a local team to help a friend out and although we are relatively new we seem to be doing well in our current league.
I play goal keeper, mainly because a) I’m not a massively competitive person so ‘fighting’ for the ball isn’t my style and b) I’m not super fit so a mostly static position is perfect for me.
Sadly we lost because we suffered and injured team mate and had no subs but was good fun all round

See you all On the flip side

New Year New…………

So the New year is well and truly under way and i seem to have spent the majority of it sat in my pyjamas feeling ill and watching movies. Not the worst start to a new year I’ve had but one of the least productive. I usually start of with a list of resolutions a mile long but so far this year i have been thoroughly demotivated to start any, and as such i am waiting until February to make and start mine.

All suggestions welcome!

I have however made some lovely dress purchases. A little new year sales treat to me here are my current favourites, The  first a little day dress from Lady V London, black with pink polka dots, planing to wear it in Italy and feel fabulous. the second is my very first wriggle dress, again from Lady V London, a little baggy as still not comfortable with tight clothes but as on sale thought I’d give it a go.

So I’ll leave you for now and hope to see you soon
