Here's What I Would Have Spent: Simpy Be

You might have seen a post or two I have done before - Here's What I Would Have Spent. Todays company is Simply Be.

A few days ago some bloggers and I got talking about Simply Be and the plus size options that they offer. For many people Simply Be are one of the reliable retailers in the market, because of the amount of time they have been around.

Over recent months I have noticed a trend in the sizes that Simple Be offer, especially in their special collections. When you visit the site you'll see that they offer have a massive difference in the number of items they have in a size compared to what they offer in a size 32 for example.

In fact when you look at dresses they have more items in a size 12 than they do in a size 28. A massive shame for a plus size retailer, who has always prided itself on offering a number of choices.



So this week I thought I would take a look at Simply Be and what I might spend, should they have given me the option.



These are items that were never stocked above a size 26 and items I'd definitely have liked to invest in, should I have been given the chance.



They're from collections such as Kelly Brook, Koko, Little Mistress etc who all do very limited items above 26, if any at all.

Have you found items you'd like to buy that were not available in your size?

On another note, a lovely company this week offered to send my mum some flowers. They came today and I thought I'd share them with you!

They're a lovely gift, thank you Floric! Aren't they beautiful? I love flowers!

Your Body Doesn't Come With Buts...

Last night I watched the Katie Hopkins documentary and to be honest with you, I just found it a bit dull. I fully expected to be writing a blog post rant about how angry she made me but I just can't find it in me. She said nothing new, shed a few tears about how she understood people more now and then sent offensive tweets to just about anyone who would listen - Dull, Dull and Duller!

However, over the last few days I have seen advert after advert of TV fat programs - The Shut-Ins on Channel 4 and a program about fat people on benefits on Channel 5, all coming up in the next week or so. On top of Katies's part two tomorrow and re-runs of My Big Fat Fetish.

They're designed to be sensationalist, to tell you that overweight people are bad and that as a fat person you should strive to lose weight... As if being bombarded with weight loss product adverts throughout January wasn't enough.

I don't want to talk about them too much, I am sure it is easy to guess how I feel about them!

However... I am here to tell you that your body doesn't come with buts....

It is not only OK to be 'fat but healthy', you can be fat in anyway you want. If you don't want to be fat any more and want to diet instead, that is OK too!

You don't have to be striving to lose weight. You don't to give excuses for your body... You don't have to claim to be too busy to lose weight or too poor to buy healthy food. You can be just the way you are without having to give people a reason why! You don't need to be fat 'but only because I have *** illness".

You don't have to be 'fat but I exercise alot".You're allowed to be fat with NO JUSTIFICATION at all!

Your body. Your Rules. Your happiness comes first. Without exception.
