Everyday Elegance With Pink Clove

I was so lucky to be asked to review this beautiful Velma duster coat from Pink Clove* a while ago and I have had the photos on my computer since forever. I've just been so poorly lately so I haven't had much energy to write. I've started this long winding road to try and find out what is wrong and why I keep fainting all the time and in addition feel like shit most of the time. I won't go into too much detail in this post, but I have a whole long list of symptoms that makes it difficult from day to day to plan much.

Curvy Con, The First Big Event Of The Year

I know that Curvy Con is not far away now, but there is still time to get tickets. The doors open at 11am on May 28th. It will be a fantastic event, with lots of different retailers present.

I was kindly sent this t-shirt from Curvy Convention5 and their main sponsor of the year XL.Promodoro and you can also win two tickets from me for this years event. All you have to do is to follow one of my social media links that you'll find on my blog and I will draw a random winner.

It will be catwalk shows at the event showing all the beautiful clothes of the brands that are at the event and also a chance to buy them, so bring cash.

There are going to be workshops and beauty treatments on site as well so if you can make it to Hackney in London, then tickets are only £5 so good value for money. 

I won't be able to attend myself as I'm busy on the day, but I will be looking forward seeing the photos of everyone dressed in all their best dresses and outfits.

#plus40fabulous- Skincare

This month I asked people if they wanted to write about their skin care and if it had changed over the years as we are getting older. Our skin is constantly changing and with age it loses it's elasticity and plumpness gradually, so what am I doing to prevent it as much as possible? I've never been very concerned about my skin and skincare is something that has come far down on the list of things to deal with. I've never had much spots apart from the odd breakout although my skin is very sensitive and get itchy and prickly very quickly.

Firstly I rarely wear any foundation or concealers that would clog up my pores. I hate the feeling wearing foundation gives me, so I'd rather try and make my skin look radiant so I don't have to cover it up. I don't care that much about redness in my face, although I do have a red face quite a lot of the time. It's me, it's who I am so I don't really worry about it.

My Experience From Being On ITV's This Morning

Last week I was so lucky that I was chosen to go on live tv on ITV's This Morning. The week before a few of us proud plus size ladies had been in the Daily Mail showing off our bikini bodies and talking about body shaming. You can read this article HERE.

Spring/Summer Campaign With Boohoo Plus

Boohoo is an online shop I shop from quite a few times a year for quick fashion. It's cheap and cheerful and always have things that current in the fashion picture, but also items that can survive in your wardrobe in the months and years to come.

When I was contacted by Boohoo if I wanted to take part in the Spring/Summer campaign We Are Us I said immediately yes as I like to experiment with new styles from time to time.

Since it's not quite warm enough for all the cute summer dresses I chose to to base my outfit around this lovely Isabella wrap front jumper * that I fell in love with straight away. It comes in three different colours, but I chose this beautiful light pink.
