Happy Autumn everyone, I love this time of year so much. I love the colours and of course there is Halloween and Bonfire night too! James and I were invited to a wedding in the lake district last weekend and being plus size I was really struggling to find something to wear I would feel comfortable in. When I was asked by Navabi if I would like a dress back at the end of September, I knew I had to choose something for the wedding!
Navabi is a plus size clothing company, that stock 10000 styles for sizes 14+. They have an amazing variety of plus size dresses to suit any occasion and budget and I for one was pleasantly surprised by the range they had to offer, from designer brands to their own line there really is something to suit any ones taste. Having never shopped with them before I was in awe looking at all that was on offer on the website and managed to choose a dress I loved fairly easily using the filters you can apply on the site. I will just add here that Navabi don’t just sell dresses, they have everything from coats to knitwear and skirts to trousers so make sure you check them out if you are looking for something new to add to your wardrobe.

If you’ve been shopping for clothes recently, you will have no doubt noticed that Animal print is somewhat of a plus size trend at the moment! I’m pretty boring when it comes to my choice of fashion at the moment, having just had a baby, I feel like I’ve not been wearing anything exciting lately, choosing convenience over fashion. I thought I would share some animal print pieces from some of my fave plus size brands. I also reached out and asked for other bloggers to share their animal print outfits too so will be including some of there looks for inspiration!

So, I can no longer contain my excitement about The Curve Fashion Festival this year! It will be my first time attending the event and I am soooo excited having missed out in previous years due to other commitments!
The festival itself, in partnership with New Look, is held in Liverpool on the 9th September and is the largest UK plus size fashion event! Not only is this a place to shop all your favourite brands under one roof, you can watch catwalk shows and even maybe meet some of your favourite plus size stars!
Menswear will be avaliable at the festival for the first time this year, and I was thrilled to hear that Debenhams will be bringing their Big and Tall range of menswear with them! The Big and Tall range collection at Debenhams is available in a range of sizes, up to 58” Chest and 52” waist and sizes up to 6XL, plus up to a size 15 shoe!!! The range us super stylish and caters for everything you can take a look at it here! It’s great to see a range of menswear like this as I know it can be difficult for plus size men too So ladies, grab your husband, boyfriend, brother, father, uncle or friends and bring them along with you!! I’m sure they won’t get bored!
As a plus size woman, I have always been told which glasses to choose to suit my face shape and it’s so annoying! I’ve recently had my eye test and updated my glasses and I wanted to share my glasses story with you all about when and why I decided to start just choosing the styles I wanted.
I have astigmatism in both my eyes. It is a relatively common condition and alot of people who wear glasses have it in some form. It can be mild but mine is quite extreme and without glasses or contact lenses I cannot really see, it’smore noticable when I’m trying to read or focus on something but most things look a bit blurry without them on!!
Astigmatism occurs when you have an uneavenly curved lens or cornea in the eye. It causes blurred images becuase the light entering the eye is not focused properly on the retina. So basically, my glasses work to correct astigmatism by compensating for the irregular curve in my eye. It has got worse overtime and I’ve noticed that I need to wear my glasses all the time in order to stop headaches and squintining. I also have to wear a special type of contact lense – but more about that another time!
I’m always so excited when I hear that a brand I love is launching a curve collection, so when I heard that Quiz was launching it’s very own curve range I did a little eeeee inside. Here is my latest outfit featuring quiz curve!
So, just like with the River Island plus launch, I did not rush out and buy anything from the Quiz range at first. Although I love Quiz, I’m always a little bit wary, mostly about sizing and fit. So I like to wait until I’ve seen the items reviewed by others first before I rush out and buy something.
So, I’m back from my jollies. I always hate coming home and getting back to reality, but i’m getting there slowly! Before I went I was delighted to be contacted by Simply Be asking if I would like to share my plus size holiday styling tips with you all and I was delighted to be able to choose two items to take to Malta with me!
Simply Be have an amazing range of plus size holiday wear and accessories to suit most budgets, with it’s own dedicated section on the website, making it really easy for you to shop fuss free for all your holiday attire. You can see the holiday range be clicking here!
With the items I chose, I decided to share both a daytime and an evening look to wear whilst on holiday with you guys! so here goes!
I don’t know about you, but when I’m on holiday and I’m not spending my day lounging around the pool reading I like to wear something light and comformtable. This Pom Pom Dress £39.00, is perfect for wearing when it’s hot outside because it’s made from a really light and airy material! While you are on holiday it’s perfect for walking around the resort when doing a spot of gift shopping or for a day when you’re out on an excursion discovering all that your destination has to offer!
So the last couple of weeks have not been my best, I really haven’t been well and this has meant that the blog has majorly suffered this March! But fear not, because I have been scheduling posts for you lovely lot this week and today I thought I’d share with you an outfit I wore recently, featuring a really colourful So Fabulous printed dress.
So if you’re not familiar with the So Fabulous range, it’s sold online at Very and Little woods. I personally think that most of the range is trendy and fashionable and it offers another option for us plus size ladies. I don’t often shop at Very anymore, but I got an email about a sale and couldn’t resist a little peep!
