Happy New Year! Let’s hope 2019 is kind to you!
The excitement of a new year for a lot of people means the chance of a fresh start, the end of an era and the start of a new one. We often get caught up in all the madness of a New Year that we believe we can simply change the person we are just by writing down a simple to do list of resolutions, but in reality New Year is just another day, and just like any other day you have to work for the things you want in life.

Netflix have created an original film called Dumplin and it’s causing a stir. The film tells the story of Willowdean a plus-size teen who grows up in a small Texan town. Will is immersed into pageant culture, her mum is an ex-pageant queen, but Will doesn’t want to partake as it’s not her style. Her aunt teaches her to love herself and is a really positive role model. Just like any other teen Willowdean has normal problems with relationships, friends, death and love. The films core message is that Willowdean is more than just fat.
I do wonder, however wonderful Dumplin is, whether Netflix created this film as a PR stunt after they received negative backlash earlier this year over its series Insatiable. A series whereby a girl is taunted for being overweight and she takes revenge on her bullies by losing weight; a promotion of the diet culture. However, Dumplin although a possible PR stunt is a very tasteful feel good film about a normal girl that just so happens to be plus size.

So Christmas Jumper Day (14th of December) is fast approaching and for a lot of work places it’s a way of spreading Christmas cheer and raising money for their charities.
However, as a plus size woman it brings its own challenges. You see just the jumper you want, the right price, the right amount of cheese to sparkle ratio but they don’t have your size. Almost always the Christmas jumper memo is a last minute thing and there’s no time to order anything online so you end up panic buying! Continue reading “Happy Christmas Jumper Day!”
So its that time of year guys, the Christmas parties are just around the corner and let me guess, you have no idea what to wear?
A lot of people dread fashion this time of year due to the fact that, everything, everywhere consists of glitter, sequins and sparkle. If you’re not confident enough to wear something that’s going to draw attention to yourself then this time of year probably won’t be your friend. But in all honesty it doesn’t have to be that way! There’s so many beautiful party dresses or outfits out there, and you really could let the bell go to the ball. Continue reading “Christmas really is your time to shine!

Hey guys welcome back! So this year has gone super quick and just like that it’s October! October means one thing… Halloween, muhahahaa (creepy Halloween laugh because I clearly think I’m funny).
I love dressing up for Halloween or for fancy dress parties, sometimes wearing clothes that aren’t ordinarily your style can totally give you a confidence boost and make you feel extra. Trying to find the perfect costume can be hard, but even harder when it comes to being plus size. Most Halloween or party shops only stock to sizes 16 or 18 if you’re lucky.

Hey guys and welcome back to my blog. So it’s been a busy couple of weeks for me with work and on top of that I lost my laptop charger (my laptop has all my content on, seriously need a backup copy). So anyways that’s the reason I’ve been MIA and this is the first opportunity I’ve had to post all about my Ibiza trip, which if you were following my Instagram, you would’ve seen some photos from my trip already.
So I’ve been to Ibiza before and therefore had some idea of what to expect, but I went with my boyfriend before and we did a few nights out but nothing heavy. Whereas this time we did it properly, all of the big clubs (well most of them) and beach parties. I really did have the best time. I went with two girls from college and my bestie.
