Scarlett and Jo - A Splash of Colour for Winter!

It is probably quite obvious but when it comes to clothing, I love nothing more than a bit of colour! I know winter is supposed to be about browns, purples and darker colours but I have never been one for breaking the rules!

I have had my eye on the Scarlett and Jo items for a few months now, but never taken the leap to buy one because I wasn't sure how they would fit on me. As you know a few weeks ago I spoke to one of the new Evans online Shape Stylists and Sarah gave me some great advice about them and so I bagged myself a bargain and bought this skirt in the sale.



I think it looks great worn in different way which is another thing I love about fashion - making it work for you!




What are your favourite items for winter?

Someone Left My Cake Out In The Rain - Featuring Lady V London

If you follow me on any type of social media then you will see I got VERY excited about the new range of Estella dresses that Lady V London released last week! I have raved about the Estella dress before and I have no doubt that I will again - it's a beaut!

When I realised that they had bought it out in their infamous cupcake print, I literally could not have been happier. Is it normal to be that excited about a dress? I bought it within the hour! Good job really as it was sold out in my size just a few days later!



As you can see the dress fits lovely, they have now improved the stitch on the bust area and I really like it that way now. The cream Estella I have is lovely but I wear it with a vest top underneath, I don't think I will need to with this style!



One thing I have to say about Lady V London is that the quality is amazing. I am always out for a bargain and spending £50 on a dress all the time is definitely not something I could do all the time but I don't regret spending it on this because it is such a thick, quality material so you know it is something that will last!




What is your favourite Lady V London print?

Evans Shape Stylist - Does It Work?

You might remember the other day I tried out the Evans Shape Stylist service and Sarah via their online service recommended some boots and jeggings for me! I am SO excited to say that I fell in love with both of the items when they arrived a few days later!



The look is something completely different for me but I actually really love it! The jeggings are a little long but that's my fault really as I probably should have bought the short length ones as discussed with Sarah - which just goes to show that they really do know their stuff!



The #Amaze t shirt is also from Evans - how cute is it! The boots are really comfortable and I am so glad I now have some proper shoes for winter :) Jeggings are something brand new for me but I really liked them! Talking to someone before I made my purchase definitely helped me try something new and I am really glad I did!

So, the shape stylist service definitely worked for me - have you tried it yet?

Prices That Let You Shop Aldi

If you're a regular Aldi shopper then you'll know that they have weekly 'Special Buys' that come & go. These feature a range of items, all of which are at a low price and available for a limited time. From the 26th October the high street supermarket are going to offer a range of plus size items for people to buy. 


Jean & T Shirt is Evans - Cardigan is Aldi!
The range goes up to a size 24 and features a number of items including tops, jeans and this lovely cardigan. Read about them here. They were kind enough to send me this cardigan to try and I am pleasantly surprised. Despite being a size 24 and therefore a few sizes too small for me it fits fine and I think it looks great!



I have teamed it up with these amazing items from Evans, which are coming to the blog soon!

Let me know if you snap up anything from Aldi!

It Hasta Be Asda

A few weeks ago I wrote about the exciting news that George at Asda had decided to extend their plus size range up to a size 32! You can read that here. The range itself isn't revolutionary and it won't cause headlines but it is pretty amazing! For me, any range that is affordable, accessible and up to a size 32 is great news - and I only hope that this range sets the bar & more high street places follow suit.

The lovely people at George at Asda were kind enough to send me a few pieces to try and I have to say I am really impressed. The dresses were both less than £15 and the leggings were less than a tenner - it doesn't get much better than that, does it?




I love the quality of the items. I have actually worn both of the dresses loads of times in the weeks that I have had them and they have been washed - they're still looking good and the colours are still great. The leggings are really nice too. They are a little long for me, but I am very short so that is often the case! They are perfect tucked into boots which is ideal for this time of year too!





The range itself seems to have a few new items being added here and there, so it is definitely one to keep an eye on!





Have you bought anything from George?

One Million Lovely Letters - Because We Should All Be Making A Difference.

Every so often I come across something that grabs my attention and I have to write about it. Admittedly it is usually something to rant about and someone that has made me mad, but tonight it's about something so beautiful it made my eyes leak.




I know that sometimes the whole issue of body image can be tiring. With so many issues surrounding us and so much that tries to bring us down, it can be exhausting. However, I also know that for many, many people there are others battles which can make life tough too!

It is easy for me to write about how you should love yourself and what you can do to make loving your body easy but today I discovered a young lady that actually does something to help people. Not with body image issues as such, but just a boost for those who need it, how amazing is that?

I watched Surprise Surprise today and came across a lovely lady called Jodie Ann Bickley who actually makes an effort to make a difference to peoples lives with her One Million Lovely Letters project.



It's inspirational to me that someone would take time out of their day to make someone else's life a little better and the One Million Lovely Letters project is nothing less than beautiful! She writes letters back to anyone who has written to her feeling a little down or hopeless and so far has written thousands of letters to people all over the world - how outstanding is that?

I love that there are people out there who want to actively make a difference in peoples lives and there are no words to describe how inspirational I think Jodie is.

Have a read of the project website - it's beautiful! http://onemillionlovelyletters.com/

Get A Better Mirror - The To This Day Project

I have probably mentioned this poem before and to be honest with you, I probably will again. I can not stress how important it is to me to watch, read and listen to body positive influences. It saddens me that we have to go out there and find them, but it is great that they're there to be found, should we want to!

This one - The To The Day Project by Shane Koyczan gets to me everytime I rediscover it, so if you have a spare 5 minutes make sure you give it a watch. It's beautiful.



And if you can’t see anything beautiful about yourself
Get a better mirror
Look a little closer
Stare a little longer
Because there’s something inside you
That made you keep trying
Despite everyone who told you to quit

If you have any body image, confidence, fat, size related items that you think I would love to see - please share the links!

Share this post with someone who needs a little boost today!
