My Favourite Dresses from JD Williams

After my photoshoot with Splento last week, I’ve decided that I’d quite like to have a professional photographer take photos of me all the time. And I could have really done with a photographer today because I’ve finally got round to taking photos of the dresses JD Williams kindly sent me.   If you follow […]

The one where Dexter chose his school uniform

    The return to school is eight days away and we are counting down! Well I definitely am. I have bought the requisite scientific calculator, descant recorder and eleventy billion coloured pencils and, more importantly, I have spent A LOT on Dexter’s new school uniform as he is off to senior school.   There […]

Shopping When You’re Plus Size

      See that picture above? That was me, yesterday, trying to find something to wear for tomorrow’s Blogon conference. As you can see, it wasn’t the most successful trip. This blouse was a size 20 so that I could try and fit the girls in, but as you can see, it’s baggy around […]


    I had a realisation this week that not only do I seem to be in the Bermuda Triangle of dating, but it also pertains to my wardrobe. Being 44 years old means that sometimes I am not quite sure what I ‘should’ be wearing or even what I want to be wearing. Throw being a size […]

Michelin starred restaurants are awfully over-rated (so I […]

I’m a Size 18 And I Wore A Bikini

I can’t believe it was only a week ago that I was on holiday in Fuerteventura with Dexter – the week has flown by.  We had such a great time pretty much … not doing a great deal really.  We swam, I read a book AND an obligatory crappy woman’s magazine (although I also read […]

Online Dating: I Like Him

  As some of you know, I had a date on Saturday night – one I was actually really excited about.   I had just felt an instant connection with this person when we first started talking.  It’s hard to explain, especially considering the jokers I’ve dated before, but this time I just knew I […]

M&S Autumn/Winter 2013

    I’ve worked with M&S before, taking part in their ‘How to dress for your shape’ campaign.  You have to check this video out of me attempting to strut my stuff on a mini catwalk – hilare!   Anyway, they got back in touch and asked me if I’d like to review some of their […]
