Bits of plus size loveliness..


Having recently started a new job, a job that I really do enjoy I’ve felt that this is the perfect excuse to peruse my favourite ( yet limited ) online stores, revisit those ever growing baskets and treat myself to a few bits of loveliness of the plus size variety.
For someone of my size and age I dread to think that I may ever look frumpy but also that I may appear to be trying too hard. I’m very conscious that people do look at me, judge me even and I’m terrified of fuelling that judgement and dare I say comments because of the way I choose to simply be me.
As discussed previously in my blog Hey, Hi, Hello, I’m not the most confident of girls, especially in the skin that I’m in however, a few of my basket treats have even surprised me. Don’t get me wrong, I will not be baring the tops of my arms nor will I be showing off my chubby brown and oddly pigmented legs anytime soon but at least I’m not saying never ( and that’s a big deal for me ).


Let’s face it ,shopping is hard at the best of times when you fall into any of the additional categories such as plus size, tall, petite, maternity let alone having on trend fashion thrust into your face knowing that it will not cater to you. My advice to you and I would be to at least try, you may even surprise yourself.

Happy Shopping,

xoxo

  1. I love the New Look jeans they look amazing! I find New Look, if I find the right store, is perfect for me as I have really short legs which no other store has my length!

Taste At Rofuto, Birmingham - Afternoon Tea

If you're anything like my friends and I, we'll pretty much jump at every opportunity to go for afternoon tea. I don't know whether its the social aspect, the never ending pots of tea or the lashings and lashings of clotted cream that get us over excited. I personally enjoy the whole experience after all, who doesn't love a few hours with their favourite girls? A few hours spent ideally in a new venue with an amazing variety of delicious desserts and if we're lucky, Bottomless Prosecco, which has helped to turn many afternoon teas into so much more.

Imagine my delight in opening an email from East Village inviting me to join some wonderful Birmingham Bloggers at Rofuto, to experience their new Afternoon Tea Menu. Having recently visited Rofuto to celebrate their birthday, I literally couldn't wait to experience this!

Upon arrival we were greeted by the wonderful ladies from East Village along with a glass of Prosecco, before taking in the spectacular views of Bir…

The heat is on in Saigon (and the Hippodrome)

The heat is on in Saigon..(and The Hippodrome)
It's very rare that I get totally excited due to an email and pretty unheard of that I squeal at one (unless there's an amazing gig tickets to be released). But this time, the squeal was very much necessary. I had been invited by Brum Bloggers to attend the Hippodrome's launch of their summer menu as well as to a performance of Miss Saigon. Wow, simply WOW!

I'm a frequent visitor to the Hippodrome whether it be for a Matthew Bourne production which always happens to fall on my Birthday or a girly get together post Hurst Street cocktails. I simply adore the theatre, whether it be reliving an old classic or getting lost in something unknown. However, Miss Saigon is a show I was yet to see. It was discussed when announced in Birmingham but none of the girls took the lead on arranging the night and I for one could not bear to start another Whatsapp group. So, the thought of the performance along with a Miss Saigon inspired menu …
Cake Cake Cake...



Unless you've been completely walking around your city with your eyes shut you would have realised that dessert shops are popping up everywhere and by everywhere I mean everywhere. Town centres, villages, shopping centres, high streets... everywhere!!

Whether you're one scoop or two, a strawberry and white chocolate crepe, an Oreo waffle or peanut butter cup shake, the dessert shop phenomenon is taking over and I quite like it.

After a 5am wake up call and a full shift at work (on a Sunday may I add) the girls and I planned for dessert, to simply get us through our Sunday and well.....'cause we love cake. 

And then there was Eis Cafe - Small Heath, Birmingham. 







Eis Cafe is owned by four Spanish brothers who had dreams of owning an ice cream parlour and coffee shop when they were younger. Two of the brothers moved away to Germany for a while before all of them made their move to the UK. It was then that Eis was born...The guys wanted to bring something new to th…
