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 […]

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 […]

My Favourite Plus Size Winter Coats | 2014

  Firstly, this ISN’T a sponsored post.  So don’t zone out.   I have the most amazing brown, faux fur coat from M&S that I was given a couple of years ago that I adore.  There’s nothing nicer than snuggling up in a soft, warm coat when it’s cold and rainy outside.  However, this coat is […]
