Hey everyone!

Today I’ve got a first on my blog! My first ever attempt at a lingerie blog post.. Scary stuff, be kind! (;

I have always been a bit reserved about doing an underwear post. I am comfortable being a plus size women but as we all can be I do sometimes shy away from showing too much on my blog. I really wanted to push myself with this post if I won’t do it I can’t truly promote the body confidence that I want to so here goes..

The wonderful people at my curves and me sent me an email asking if I’d like to review some of their underwear. I have soooo many issues finding decent D+ bras that A. Fit and B. Are Sexy, This site however seemed to be a mixture of the two so I was pretty intrigued!

I scrolled through the site and ummmd and ahhhd over what I wanted and changed my mind several times… But in the end decided on these beauties. This is called ‘Rosie full cup’ in ‘blue floral’ by Panache.

The embroidery on this underwear set is just gorgeous! I absolutely adore anything blue on me so I felt super comfortable as soon as I put these on! They fit like a glove and I loved the fact the underwear is high up on me. I love the vintage look, I’m really not into really skimpy underwear so I just felt great in this set!

I had not heard of my curves and me before this review but I will definitely be going back for seconds. They stock right up to 46HH in bras and a size 26 in underwear so if you struggle to find underwear like I do go and give this site a look! And as an added plus this ALWAYS have great sales on.

You can find my bra HERE

Hey everyone (:

Just a quick outfit post to let you know I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth! Just gone through a career change, with little time to write any posts!

I love this skirt, it’s so different. I love the letters and stamps pattern. It’s a lovely shape for me. Anything with lots of volume I LOVE. I paired it with a love heart ‘Amour’ top to make it a ‘love letter’ theme.

P.s how much do you love this necklace? My boyfriend wasn’t overly keen but it’s such a unique piece, good job Primark! (;

Hey everyone!

Hands up everyone from Manchester! Got your hand up? If so hi!! (*Waves*) I have recently been to your lovely town for an Icona Pop and Katy Perry gig! I must say I absolutely adore your town, great live music, great shopping and great people!

I had a little look around and discovered the fashion adventure land that is the Trafford centre! Wow if only there was a place like this where I live! I would be spending all my hard earned cash in here.

It was so great to see so many fashionista's around the place, I love anywhere that people embrace their individuality, I'm sure I saw a few plus size bloggers but at the risk of making a fool of my self I reframed from saying hi! Wish I had now, if you think you saw me then yes you did! Lol

While in the Trafford centre I went into Selfridges for a quick nosey. I couldn't believe they were selling Primark clothes in there! I picked up a few gems for my holiday. I also had a look in Victoria's Secret. A shop that I'd not been into before so that was a treat! Some of the perfume in there is to.die.for, I ended up getting a pair of shorts from their 'pink' collection – also for my holiday. I then went to Boots to see if I could get some bits from Kate moss's new line for Rimmel, I bought an emerald gel eyeliner, amethyst mascara and emerald mascara! It's good to be a bit different (; I'll let you know how I get on with those!

The gig it's self was incredible. Katy Perry's prismatic tour did not disappoint. Their were flying emojis, people dressed as animals, 1 gold horse and a hell of a lot of cat references. A typical day in the life of Katy Perry. She was supported on your by the fabulous Swedish duo Icona Pop! I must say they were absolutely fab live and I discovered so many more of their great tunes that I downloaded back at the hotel! One song you should definitely give a listen is 'it's my party' it's a proper tune if you love a good baseline.

Have you seen the prismatic tour?

Review: Popchips snack box <3

Hey everyone!

The lovely people at Popchips very kindly sent me one of their snack boxes to try! I had already tried a BBQ flavour packet in a beauty box so I was so excited to try the other flavours and see if any other flavour could beat BBQ! Here’s how I got on…

If you’ve never heard of Popchips here’s a bit of back ground…

So what are Popchips?
These potato chips are popped chips with all the flavour of normal crisps with less than 100 calories per serving. Popchips pledge is to have nothing ‘fake’ in them. They are free from preservatives , fake flavours or colours.

These are great for me right now as I’m off on holiday in a few weeks and I would really like to get swimwear ready! Snacking is my biggest issue when trying to diet so it’s great to have snacks like these that I can enjoy guilt free!

So now to the taste testing..

So first of all I binged on the BBQ flavour all in the name of research obviously.. Need to make sure they taste the way I remember (; I then sat down with a group of family members and we all had a few bites of each flavour! We all decided the best flavour was sea salt and vinegar. I love the taste of these because it’s just the right amount of flavour, I hate it when the vinegar completely over powers the flavour so these were just perfect!

The flavour we all liked the least was the salt and pepper flavour. Having a few of these you would probably enjoy it the taste but try eating a whole packet and you’ll need a glass of water (or wine if your like me) to help it go down. They are lovely but the flavour is so rich the pepper really does have a kick to it! I’m sure some people would absolutely love these but for me there just not my cuppa tea!

If you would like to try some Popchips visit their website for a list of retailers that stock them HERE

Have you tried Popchips?

Hey everyone

It’s a beautiful summers day here in England! So I’ve opted for a pale pink mini dress and some low heels. I think I’m a bit obsessed with wearing this belt! It just looks good with everything really!

I’ve left my hair up today because it’s so hot I hate having hair in my face when I’m hot! Now that I’m home I feel really tiered from the sun so I’ve got a date with Leonardo dicaprio (wolf of wall street) and maybe some Ice cream (;

Hey everyone!

As promised after telling you all I had the Primark sundress in other patterns, I thought I’d do a quick post to show you the pineapple version. It’s £7 like the yellow one and just as lovely if not better (;

Apologies for the lack of quality pics recently I’ve been too busy to plan any posts so there all iPhone quality which we all know isn’t the best!

I hope everyone’s having a great day!

20140517-143317.jpg

Hey everyone!

I was so excited to see Elizabeth Arden were collaborating with Preen again to release another fab promotional clutch! I had to order it straight away, 2 days later it’s in my possession and I’m writing about it!

This is available at Debenhams online and in store until the end of the month , when you buy 2 Elizabeth Arden products. It comes with some great little miniatures packed inside.

Want even more good news? Debenhams online currently have an extra 10% off beauty too! I bought the ‘pure finishing radiating bronzer’ in shade soft and an eye pencil in granite.

In the bonus clutch you get 4 miniatures but contents will vary. I got the iconic ‘eight hour’ hand cream, a nude palette, prevage anti ageing cream and some ‘visible difference’ skin balancing lotion. All put together in this gorgeous on trend floral clutch! What more could you want in a freebie?

Let me know what you think (:
