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 […]

BONMARCHÉ EVENING WEAR | Review

    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 […]

La Redoute Evening Wear

  The life of a freelancer (and single woman) dictates that I don’t get asked out very often. Woe is me etc. In fact, the highlight of my Christmas was going to an old man’s pub, The Three Mariners, on Christmas morning with my family. Hardly Nobu. Michelin starred restaurants are awfully over-rated (so I […]

Long Tall Sally | Christmas Wishlist

  At 5ft 9”, I’m considered tall for a woman. It used to be something that upset me at school because all the boys were shorter but I remember feeling relief after one summer holiday because at aged 15, finally everyone shot past me and I didn’t feel so out of place.   Of course, […]

Dating: The One Where A Man Called Me Fat

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 […]

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 […]

Should Big Girls Wear Bikinis?

      (OK, I know today’s blog post title is a little provocative, but bear with me.)   So last night, as I sat and watched Millionaire Matchmaker on Tivo (I know, I know!), I started thinking about my impending holiday abroad.  I am SO excited!  I haven’t had a beach holiday for 7 […]
