Basically this is me…

What doesn't kill you DEFINITELY makes you stronger

It’s been a while but guess what… I’m doing an outfit post! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

After spending pretty much most of the last week in bed after a rather nasty flare up of my illness. My husband and best friend took me out for a Toby Carvery today which was rather delicious

Just look at that ๐Ÿ˜

As it was the first time I had got dressed since Tuesday. I thought I’d make an effort and wear one of my favourite dresses from the summer. My SCARLETT & JO Purple & White Lollidot Heart Print Midi Dress

Just look at the prettiness!!!!!!

As a girl who has MAJOR issues with her stomach I can not fault this dress, it floats over my stomach, gives me a shape and as a 6 foot 2 girl I am a big fan of any dress that covers my bum! And it just makes me feel so pretty and girly and just wonderful.

Any dress that can make feel that way is ok by me ๐Ÿ’ž

I am also impressed by Scarlett & Jo’s customer service. This is a replacement dress as the first one I bought was faulty. After a couple of emails and sending the original dress back, free of charge. They sent me this replacement so quickly!

In other news! You may have noticed I now have a full length mirror! After it being in the spare room for almost a year I have taken it out of its packaging and put it on the door! So get ready for a lot more outfit posts and my face! ๐Ÿ˜‚

As ever thank you for reading and I hope you are all having a lovely relaxing Sunday.

Lollidot Heart Print Dress


New Look Curve

I’ve been back in Birmingham this weekend celebrating my bestie’s 30th Birthday.
We had a wonderful Spa Break at the Windmill Village Hotel and then came back to hers to go for a meal with her family and friends.

While on the spa break, I realised that I hadn’t bought anything to wear for the evening meal. Which lead to a very quick dash to the New Look in Birmingham to try and find something to wear.

As a plus size girl, I have been shopping in the New Look Inspire range for years and I have managed to find some lovely clothes. Recently New Look have had a re-brand and their plus size range is now called Curve.

I usually shop online, so it was fun to go shopping with my bestie and have a look at the new range.

Top Oneย 

Bardot top- ยฃ12.99

I really liked this top but it was way too big on me. Due to training for the Race for Life I have lost a bit of weight and have been toning up. I definitely saw the small differences in my body while trying on theses tops.

Top Two

Blue Wrap Sleeveless Top- ยฃ12.99ย 

I wasn’t that fussed with this top as I thought it was way to plain for my friend’s birthday meal. However after looking at this picture again, I am really loving this top. It gives me a lovely shape, fabulous colour and would be brilliant for work. Might have to pop into New look after work this week to see if the still have it in stock.

Top Threeย 

Lattice Back Top – ยฃ14.99

I was convinced this would be the top I would wear for the meal. I loved the pattern and the lattice back. But it really didn’t suit me, the pattern made my boobs look flat- which they definitely aren’t and it really didn’t sit well over my waist and stomach. It’s a shame as it looked so lovely on the hanger but sometimes that just happens.

Top One – againย 

With the other tops really not being suitable, I went back to the first Bardot top but got the size smaller. AND I LOVED IT! So flattering andย looked so fab on. This will definitely be a main stable of my summer wardrobe.

Final lookย 

So here it is, my lovely new top. With some serious posing in the ย sun ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Hope you all enjoyed your bank holiday weekend and thank you for reading ๐Ÿ˜˜

Stripes, Stripes, Stripes…. From Yours Clothing

As some of you are aware, (from my constant moaning) I haven’t been very well. For the last week and a half I have been stuck in bed and wearing my very glamorous PJs while I have been recovering.

Unfortunately over the weekend, I have been really poorly and was told by the hospital to see my GP today which I have done.

So as I was going to the doctors, I thought I would wear my new top for Yours Clothing.

striped jumper from Yours Clothing

I haven’t bought much from Yours Clothing before, and actually got this jumper online as I had bought some tights and saw it in the sale and really liked it.

When it arrived, the first thing I noticed was that I bought the wrong size, it’s too big on me and I could of done with a smaller size. However I quite liked it being bigger on me. It flatters me well and with all the issues going on with my stomach at the moment it’s nice that it doesn’t cling.

I have taken a picture of myself in the top and I admit it is not the most flattering shot, especially as I’m not very well but the point of this blog was to get myself out there and stop being so harsh on myself so here goes nothing

Superwoman Pose ๐Ÿ˜‚

I do really like this top and will happily wear it to work and in my free time.

I do love a stripey top and I love the added lace pattern to this top. Really gives the top something extra.

For my oh so exciting trip to the doctors, I added my leather jacket ( I’m pretending it’s spring) and wore my black skater skirt.

definitely a lovely little buy from Yours Clothing and will definitely shop there again ๐Ÿ˜Š

And for those interested, the doctor has changed my medication and I’ve been signed off for a week. Fingers crossed the medication will work and I will feel better soon.

So I am now back snuggled in bed watching the white queen. How has your Monday been??


What I wore-

GREY MARL AND NAVY STRIPE LACE PRINT LONG SLEEVE JERSEY TOP from Yours Clothing – ยฃ12 in the Sale (usually ยฃ18)ย
