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?

I was lucky enough to be gifted some items in this post and I am very grateful, but I am always open and honest in my reviews!

By George They've Done It!

Look at this dress, pretty isn't it? As dresses go it isn't massively revilutionary but let me tell you this - IT COSTS JUST £14!!! For people who can fit into Primark and other high street budget brands this is nothing spectacualr but the fact that Asda now do this dress, for less than £15 right up to a size 32 is amazing for me.

Over the past few weeks, a few beady eye bloggers have noticed at the George at Asda plus size range has been slowly adding items right up to a size 30-32. Yes, the items are pretty standard high street fashionn but what good news! I can only hope that these will be stocked in store so I can pick up a new dress at the same time as a pick up my milk, something that many people of a smaller size take for granted. If you spot these items in store let me know!


The items might not be screaming 'look at me', but WOW a high street (hopefully!) range that is cheap, easily accessible and right up to a size 32 definitely gets the thumbs up from me. Hopefully they'll extend past floral and butterfly print once they seen it is a range that is really needed! Of course, I would love to see as many items for sale in a size 32 as they have in a 24, but small steps at a time. Have you looked at the range? What do you think?

I'm hoping to get some of the items to try and review, keep your eyes peeled!

George at Asda - Perfect For Party Success!

I will be honest, I never had much interest or love of children, well babies anyway until I lived with one! I am not maternal at all, but I spent 2 months living in London with baby Darcy (www.bumpandbeyondblog.co.uk) and I loved it! Now I find myself glancing at baby clothes and sending her mum links to pretty dresses I have seen online! I have, of course also made it my job to teach Darcy the art of the selfie.


George At Asda emailed me and asked me to write about the choice in childrens fashion and I thought why the hell not! This blog, is after all about breaking barriers and showing that fashion is for everyone - even those not quite old enough to say their own name yet :)

As soon as a little girl heads off to school, the number of party invitations in her backpack will undoubtedly skyrocket, as she gets asked to various parties hosted by her school friends to celebrate their birthdays. While you may not be much of a party-thrower normally, as soon as she heads to school, you’ll no doubt feel the pressure of organising one for her, so that she can be the centre of attention on her special day.

You may decide to keep things simple and ask her to choose a couple of friends to come over for dinner, or you may choose to hire a village hall so that they can run riot, pass the parcel and be entertained by a magician. Whatever you opt for, giving your little girl the chance to feel like a princess for the day is priceless, and there are plenty of ways in which you can ensure that the party is as successful as possible.

Theme?

You’ll undoubtedly have lots of ideas swimming around your mind, but rather than bundling all of your ideas into one party, opt for a theme that you can channel your ideas towards. Pinterest is a great tool that will give you plenty of inspiration if you need it, too. Themes such as princesses, rainbows and Disney are just some of the popular choices for little girls, or you could opt for a more unisex one if boys are invited too.

Fancy Dress?



If you like the idea of giving the children a chance to dress up, add it to the invitations before you send them, so that people know what is expected. Opt for girl’s fancy dress that is easy (and affordable) to do – George at Asda’s girl’s fancy dress, for example, provides plenty of inspiration that won’t break the bank.

Food?



Some places, such as soft play venues, can provide the catering so that you don’t have to, which will be in with the price of the package. This can take the stress off you, so that you don’t have to worry about any food prep the day before the party. However, if you do need to sort the food yourself, don’t take too much work on and remember that the appetite of little ones is very different from your own. Try and provide some healthy options but, in most cases, a couple of sandwiches, some cocktail sausages and some sweet treats will be enough.

Entertainment?

You can choose from hiring someone to entertain your little party attendees or putting on some activities to keep them busy. Craft activities are fabulous if you think the guests will be feeling particularly creative, while traditional party games, such as Pin the Tail on the Donkey, Musical Statues and Pass the Parcel will always go down well.

Speak to your little girl and ask her what type of party she would like, and include her in the decision making to make her feel grown up. Whatever you do, she’ll have a fantastic time as the star of the show anyway! 

Something For Mum

George at Asda also have a fantastic range of plus size clothing on offer so you can look fabulous at your daughters party too! I love supermarket clothing ranges because they are so affordable and you can often pick up staple items or the odd party piece without breaking the bank.



I know, a bit of a different post for me but I am trying to mix up the blog a bit so I hope you enjoyed reading it!

George High Summer 2014 Offerings

Today I was lucky enough to be invited to the press day for the brand new George at Asda offerings for the summer season. Sometimes it can be hard to know what you'll get at these events which aren't specifically catering to plus size, but it was great to see what they're going to be offering this summer.


The one thing I loved about what they showed is colour. There are some amazing, vibrant prints coming out in the new George collection and that is something that really excites me. Even if the clothes don't go to my size (I keep meaning to try their skater dresses as everyone says they're very generous) their accessories were fabulous!

Of course - I took loads of pics for you all, so you can have a sneaky peak too!




And don't forget I am shopping my wardrobe - so here is a dress I don't wear nearly enough from Yours Clothing! Forgot how much I like it!




What clothes are you looking forward to wearing this summer?
