Evans wide fit Black Metallic Plait Wedge Shoes Review







As far as shoes go, heels are usually a no no for me which is a shame as I'm 5'3 and wouldn't mind a few extra inches. I've tried what seems like all sorts and when Evans offered to help me with my shoe problems I jumped at the chance. So what do I look for in a shoe with a heel? Well they HAVE to be comfortable first and foremost! I like black as it goes with most colours and I do enjoy a peep-toe to show whatever splash of colour is on my toes. Now.. the dreaded part, the heel, actually no I think the walking part is the hardest for me haha..  1,2.. 3.. POOF. The perfect shoe for me was sent and it was these Evans Black Metallic Plait Wedge Shoes!*

 I've never worn a shoe like this before and it's like a half heel, half flat bottomed shoe and walking is a breeze, none of that half swaying swagger like steps, and I'm not constantly worrying that as a plus size girl I'll snap the heel off!!  I can't be the only one that worries about that?.  I got these wedges in an 8EEE and they are perfect for me in terms of size and width as I do have me some wide chubby feet! Another plus was the buckle actually did up round my ankle! 

 Like any sandal I did have to wear them in a bit as the back slightly rubbed, but they fit like a glove sock and look so trendy! I've worn these with jeans and maxi dresses and they have this Aztec vibe and are perfect for holiday! I'm in love and I'm taller!!!! YAY!!! haha.

Korres Mango Lip Butter Review




Nothing says Spring Summer makeup like the perfect selfie and there is nothing better then a perfect lipstick or lip pencil to complete that makeup look. I know everyone always gets chapped lips in the colder months but me? I get them all year round as I find in the Spring/ Summer months I'm wearing my bright lipsticks more and my lips suffer that little bit extra and I've been LOVING my Korres lip butter in Mango. 

I purchased this back in March whilst in Amsterdam after I had seen it the Birchbox shop and almost treated myself to one a few times, It was only while we were out and about I saw the lip balm to try and I fell in love with the texture and colour and had to get it there and then!  The colour is just gorgeous and leaves my lips this warm orange hue whist nourishing and moisturing my lips.  The Korres lip butters come in 7 colours so there is a shade for everyone.

I love to apply this at the start of my makeup routine and carry on applying all my makeup and with a q-tip take it off and go in with my lip colour of choice or on days my lips are really bad I go to bed the night before with this caked on and in the morning I find it's softened any hard skin and I go in with my lip scrub or exfoliator and just take off that dead skin and my lips are ready for whatever I want to put on them!


Have you tried Korres Lip Butters?

Bon Prix Plus Size Swim Wear Review







It's that time again where all the spring items are showing in my favourite shops, where I'm thinking about a holiday in the sun and it's usually also the time I think what am I going to wear to the beach, however I'm not panicking at all!  Bon Prix kindly sent me this Tankini from their swim wear range to ensure I have a worry free time on a beach or in a pool on holiday and I can't wait to gallivant on a beach somewhere in this bad boy!

If I'm 100% honest, Bon Prix isn't somewhere I'd think to visit for plus size swim wear but while looking several items that caught my eye in a variety of sizes going from a size 6 - 32 and a 30 - 46 bust to AA-E cup which is great as my readers all vary in size!

I chose the Floral Print Tankini* in a size 22 E cup. I absolutely adore the print and it will look amazing with a tan. While the sizing was good and fit fine, as a plus size women I do have a large tummy and I noticed the bottoms would ride down as they weren't high waisted enough to cover more of my tummy and the top would shrink up a little so I found myself pulling down the top and pulling up the bottoms which I think might be a deal breaker for some in terms of being comfortable walking on a beach and having my belly just fall out, or sit down and have both items roll the wrong way and free my belly on a sun lounger haha..  god that's a lovely mental image.. 

Now I do have what I like to call a bit of a Simon Cowell complex where I always wear my trousers over my belly so I was pretty impressed at how comfy I felt wearing this tankini despite the odd tug here and there and I was having so much fun prancing around the garden but I'd say if you have a belly like me and want your bottoms to stay put, I'd size up in the bottoms or look for a more high waisted bottomed tankini, or mix and match! 

I'd also like to say a special thank you to Jennie who had been looking after me from Bon Prix. As you all know I've not long had surgery and Jennie and the team were very patient while I had my operation AND got back on my feet and even though I've set them back weeks with my review, they still remain as patient as ever which is always a huge pressure off ones back, so Thank you Jennie! :)

Introducing Made By Riley

Made by Riley is a London based fashion brand designing and producing clothing in Britain. They have created a high quality and contemporary collection that appeals to both men and women. With each sale of every item they will donate 20% of the profit to their partnered charities. My Jumper's 20% went to Act!onid which is pretty cool :) It's not often my clothes are contributing to a charity!

Riley Uggla says "I have been very fortunate to live a life full of opportunity and freedom. After assisting with different charitable projects I decided I wanted to create a fashion brand that will give back to others less fortunate, through select charities".

I've always been a fan of that urban skater "scene kid" look and as much as I love a dress and cute hand bag there was a time you wouldn't find me in anything else but a pair of slip on vans and skater pants so Riley's line is right up my old school street. I love how Made By Riley has captured that contemporary look. I love the prints on their T-shirts and jumpers and I'm sooooo in love with my "Lifechanger" jumper*. As soon as I took it out of its gorgeous packaging I could feel it was a quality jumper and I always like a jumper when it's super cosy on the inside! It's the perfect jumper to wear with the weather at the moment, It's not too warm that I'll be sweating it out on the tube, but its warm enough to wear without a coat on those cool evenings.

I got mine in an XL which is perfect for a size 20 and it was the perfect fit for my figure. I decided to wear mine with ripped jeans from Asos and girly it up with my favourite leopard print pumps from Primark and silver bull necklace from Black Tied.

You can support one of their chosen charity's with your purchase at madebyriley.co.uk
