Hi everyone,

I hope you’re all well? Unfortunately I’ve not been very well the past few weeks, so my sporadic posting has continued. BUT! If all goes well, you’ll have not one, not two, but THREE posts from me this week! Aren’t you lucky… ahem. Anyway. Guess what? I’m only bloody WEARING CLOTHES!

Me wearing a white sleeveless peplum top, a comic print knee length skirt and a bright neon yellow satchel with gigantic black boots. And a scowl on my face. Could I BE any more miserable?

Top: Just Curvy*
Skirt: Primark
Litas: Zalando*
Satchel: Simply Be*
Batman ring: Claire’s

To illustrate just how crap I am at working with brands, let me tell you a filthy secret: I got these Lita boots in March. MARCH. That’s when I was given a voucher to get myself something nice from the website, which had just launched in the UK from Germany. And instead of getting myself something nice from their plus size collection, I decided to indulge myself and blow it on a pair of Jeffrey Campbell Litas. The idea was that once I’d worn them in, I could wear them to gigs and be able to see the bands since they would make me normal-person-height. Alas, it’s been months and despite the instep being fine, the material hasn’t yet give so after 10 mins I’m desperate to take them off.

One day.

Similarly with Just Curvy – this top has been in my posession for a while now, although I did at least have the foresight to let them know how slack I updating and invited them to send me reminders. And they haven’t gone unnoted! Just Curvy are a new brand that has popped up recently – it’s been really nice to see all these boutiques being launched. Their selection is similar to AX Paris, Lovedrobe etc although they have a few individual pieces like this peplum top. I really like it, and I’m actually about to buy a black version as well. The only issue I have is that it’s quite seethrough, as you can see from the photo. But other than that I love it!

My satchel is a little worn now – this wasn’t given for a review, I was able to take my accessories from the Simply Be blogger takeover shoot home with me. But it’s served me well and I love the attention I get from it. The amount of people who think I’m sporting a genuine Cambridge is hilarious. Don’t they know I’m a massive cheapskate?

Also, this picture should answer the question, “who takes your blog photos?” quite nicely. Ha!


Hello everyone!

Before I go on with the outfit, I just want to say a massive thak you to all of you who commented on my last post. There were so many I didn’t really know where to start replying, so please don’t think I was ignoring you or didn’t care – I do, very much, and I’m so bloody grateful. To be honest, that post wasn’t about me giving up – it was about me not giving up. It was me remembering what I blog for, which is difficult when loads of exciting stuff comes my way and can cloud things a little.

Anyway. Onwards!

Image: me, standing in front of a gated park and a huge tree, next to a black ornate lamppost. I’ve got a red bodycon skirt, black top and cardigan.

Top: ASOS Curve
Skirt: Forever 21+
Shoes: New Look
Cardigan, handbag: Primark

The lovely Isha took this photo for me round the back of where I work. It’s so pretty, like the London you see in Richard Curtis movies. This is a pretty pedestrian “look”, I wanted to be smart and also try out my nice new top from ASOS which I got as a result of a sale splurge. Most of it didn’t look right so got sent back, hehe. I hate myself but I love the Primark bag – I’m hoping that I can cart my proper camera around with me so I can get properly nice pictures for the blog at some point. Fingers crossed…
