A New Look for Summer...


The weather has been glorious lately and I'm one of those people that see a hint of sun and I'm stripping off into my vest tops and shades and rocking out florals and this year will be no different, only I'm going for a new look..

New Natural Hair Treats with Yves Rocher


I was lucky enough to get sent some of the new goodies that have launched with Yves Rocher for hair and body! Yves Rocher is France's No.1 selling make-up and skincare brand so it makes sense they are bustin' out with some haircare products.

Top Picks for Picnics


While the weather is so lush at the moment I thought I'd share my top picks for picnic's and it's all well thought through for my other chubby bunny's out there like myself, I say that because the first thing I want to mention is this cropped pair of jeans from Newlook. If I'm going to be sitting on the grass or on a blanket, the last thing I want to worry about is flashing any kiddiewinkles running around so a cropped pair of jeans means I still get to have my legs out and be comfy in the sun without fear sippin' on pimms. Next, seeing as I'm not wearing a dress I wanted to find the perfect spring top, embracing my bingo wings I saw this heart sleeveless blouse from Lovedrobe and it's so me. I'm in LOVE with it and definitely need it in my life to wear this Spring/Summer. It's super light and colourful and I love that it's not floral because you know EVERYONE and their pug puppies are going to be dressed in florals so this way I still feel all bright and ready for spring. Next is shoes, While I love a good flip flop in the park, I know we are going to end up playing frisbee or french bowls and I'm going to wish I wore flats so I've chosen this gorgeous bright pink peeptoe pump from Newlook! Perfection, I can even show off my pedicure! Next is making sure I'm not squinting and ruining my half hour application of eyeliner applied to perfection I might add, so glasses are a MUST and I always love a cat eye shape so I've gone for the gabrielle cat eye glasses in black from The Glasses Shop. Lastly, a decent backpackack is essential and I've chosen the Kanken mini from Fjallraven Canada. When me and the coolcats go for a picnic, I always bring my laptop for some Spotify tunage and this has an insert that keeps it separated and safe which I love! Then its time to ram it with your usual food and eating utensils and we always like to chuck in a frisbee and a pack of cards along with some suntan lotion, bug spray and don't forget those anti-histamines and some napkins in case hay fever strikes!


What are your top picks for picnics?

Jeans were spot on..






I am yet to meet someone that finds it easy to buy a pair of jeans, and if you are reading this and thinking " well I don't have a problem " then you can just sod off :P Just kidding, you can stay, but it really is crazy how much time we spend finding the right pair of jeans and I think in terms of fit, the Evans Super Stretch Jeans* are pretty spot on with everything. For starters they are on sale for £20 and these aren't actually available on Evan's website anymore and if I remember correctly, it was this pair all the plus size jeans that all the bloggers said were a good fit. Always like a bit of good feedback! The size was spot on for a 26, where I'm losing weight, I've lost weight in my thighs and in my tummy area so in certain places these are a little baggy and I think I'm very close to dropping to a size 24 ( YAY ) and I will be purchasing these in that size to carry on enjoying them.

 The site only has sizes in regular length which is 30 or 32 I think, as you can see I rolled mine up at the bottom as I'm 5'3 but I think they can always look really cute if paired with a cute shoe and I'm wearing an old pair of polka dot red peep-toes from Asda which went perfectly with my new top from Forever 21+. All in all I'm really happy with these jeans and can't wait to go into the 24 so they fit perfectly everywhere. 

I'd also like to say a special thank you to Bethanie from the House of Fraser PR team for being so patient with this review. There were quite a few brands waiting for reviews while I was in hospital and her support while I was recovering has been amazing, so Thank You!! :)

APRIL | MONTHLY ADVERTISERS

Hello April, 2015!!

Hi everyone! 

Have you ever been away from your blog for a while and you go to write your first post after being gone and you don't know where to start? Do you explain? Do you try and justify your absence? I'm sure you would all leave lovely comments and well wishes if I told you about my time in hospital and told you everything that went down, but instead of dwelling on the time that has passed, I want to focus on the future. Focus on the days ahead of me instead of the ones that are behind me.

Today's post is my monthly advertisers post where I highlight all the lovely adverts you see down my sidebar. I'm very lucky to have you fabulous followers and I can only hope you can spare a few moments to check out these guys and fall in love with their blogs like I have :) They were all kind enough to be super supportive while I was in Hospital and was unable to pimp them out as much as I'd of liked too so you will be seeing them all here for a few more months as a special thank you to them so make SURE you check them out :) x
