Bouquet Biker


I have really struggled to find a coat this Winter. The boyfriend shape seems to be featuring heavily and I love it but it just does not fit my shape. I need a shorter jacket or a fit and flare style. When I saw this beautiful Tapestry Joe Browns Jacket in Simply Be it was love at first sight. I like the use of the flower pattern tapestry to make the harder look of the Biker jacket style more feminine.

I expected the fabric to be quite stiff but it is rather lightweight and soft and fully lined so still cozy enough for the chilly days. I also have to mention the cut is spot on! The sleeve length and shoulder fit perfectly! I find this is the case with most Joe Browns outerwear. I should have sized up for a better body fit since I have expanded recently due to baby stress. Hopefully 2015 will see me stress free and shrink back to my former size and this won't be a problem.

These pictures really do not do this coat justice! Being Winter the light is terrible and weather is so bad outside this is as good as I could get after three tries!

Snow White



If you don't already know! I am a massive costume fan! Halloween is a perfect chance to dress up as someone/something else but there are also lots of New Year fancy dress parties these days. Plus Size Lingerie Boutique may not seem like a place to look for such wears but they actually have a large Plus Size collection of costumes as well as Lingerie. The company is based in the USA but they deliver all over. 

I ordered the Snow White costume in a 4x which I would say is about a UK size 22/24. The fabric is stretchy at the back so I managed to squeeze my size 26 body and 42jj bust into it and the laced section on front I loosened to make it more comfortable. If you have a small bust this will not be an issue! I just have massive boobs that are hard to fit into anything. There was plenty room in the belly department! 

This is straight out of the packet on my body! Please excuse the creases but I don't own an iron. I should probably get one really. This is such a cute outfit and I can't wait to show it off! 

You can check out all the costumes on offer HERE.  As you can see there is so much choice and such fun and sexy pieces all at great prices.

PSBlogger Christmas Meet - Part 2

After everyone arrived we headed to the food hall and all went in groups to various locations with the plan to meet up at Simply Be for 2pm. 



We were greeted by the super lovely staff and given bubbly to sip while we looked around and tried on things in out reserved changing cubicles. How fancy did we feel! 





We were also given these lovely gift bags that included a perfume that smells good enough to eat!


I loved this velour flower print dress but sadly the store did not have much above a size 26 to try on and I feel I need the larger sizes. 


I liked the metallic knit of this thin jumper but the shape was all wrong on me.






In Evans I tried on this Scarlett & Jo dress and fell a little bit in love! It is was also available in maroon with a spotted mesh neckline but has sadly sold out on the website. My lovey hubby has bought me this black version for Christmas and 8 can't wait to wear it.






In Yours I picked up this cute nightdress and some under garments that I will blog about at a later date. 


After a long day of shopping and socialising I finally gave in to my tired feet and empty wallet and went home to see my boys. 

All these stores have up to 50% off just now so go check out what bargains they have on offer!

PSBloggers Christmas Meet - Part 1

Saturday morning I got up early to go to Meadowhall for the PSBloggers Christmas Meet organised by the lovely Leah aka StyleXL creator!. You might think we were crazy for going to a mall at the weekend this close to Christmas! I will not lie. It was packed. 

It is hard to dress for Meadowhall at the best of times. I went for as light and comfy an outfit as possible as i always end up a sweaty mess walking around the place for hours. This is as casual as I get! 

Keep an eye out for Franklin making his standing debut! He wanted in on the photo action. His outfit is not really up to scratch buy he wad just out of bed. I think he approved of mine.

Jane had the lovely idea of us all clubbing together a bit of money and we got leah this cute Rudolph and gift card for all the work she put into organising this day for us. 



Leah took these photos while we were waiting for everyone arrive. 


You might recognise some faces! 


We were all given this awesome gift bag filled with goodies! The bag is really good quality and i will be buying a few more from the selection at  http://www.madebytalented.com


I am not much of a beauty product user but everyone seemed very excited about the Revolution Make Up & remover! I have had a play with the make up and can agree that it is defo something to get excited about! You can check them out at  http://www.makeuprevolutionstore.com

The aloe vera items are going to be a life saver in the summer (available from Boots) and the mini http://www.crabtree-evelyn.co.uk/home.html  hand cream smells so good! The http://www.balancecosmetics.co.uk eye cream shall be tested! As will the  www.skinetica.co.uk toner. 

The Charnos tight are only a size 20 so I will take them to the next Plus Size Swap and someone can get use of them. http://www.charnoshosiery.co.uk 


Included was a gift voucher for http://www.applesandpearsclothing.com and a https://www.benefitcosmetics.co.uk Makerupper Card for free make up session.   












MissGuided #HeresWhatIWouldHaveSpent


Very recently a plus collection was added to the website and although their sizing has been said to be generous it still only goes up to a size 24 which is too small for myself and lots of other people. 

Debz -http://www.wannabeprincess.co.uk had the idea to this link up. We want to let brands know that we want more choice! Extented sizes and s fat people want to spend our money on your clothes! Just give us the chance! 








Also this is #HeresWhatIWouldHaveSpent on the straight size range if it was available in my size 26/28





Totalling over £200!!!
