Do You Have A Favourite Dress?

Hello again everyone.

How are you all doing? Winter is slowly creeping up on us and I'm ok with it. I admit I like it better when I don't have to wear boots, tights, jeans and coats to keep warm, but it's something about it that makes me happy too.

But today I want to talk about dresses. And not just any dress. But my favourite dress. My favourite dress might not the nicest dress I own, nor the sexiest, but it's a dress that I wear at least a few times every week all year round! And the dress I'm talking about is this one!

 It's an old dress from Taking Shape that I bought at least 4 or 5 years ago and I have worn it so much. It's a great all rounder as it's so easy to just throw on if you're going to run some errands or if you're just going out for a quick drink or just lounging about it in your garden. I team it with leggings and boots in the winter as well when it's too cold to just wear it on its own.

Best of all this dress has pockets!!!! I love a dress with pockets and this dress has got pockets!!!

I love the colours of this dress and the print. It makes me happy to look at it and it goes together with so many other things I own. The shape of it is a classic shift dress so it falls really lovely over my big boobs as well so I feel it's a lovely and versatile dress for me.

Like I said, it might not be the prettiest dress I own, but it's definitely the most loved.

Do you have a dress like this that you wear all the time?

Feels Like Summer Out There, But It's Party Season Coming Up Soon!!!!

It's almost November and I can't believe how quickly time flies. This year has been a bit of a different one as the weather has been so brilliant here in the UK and it's still almost summer temperatures out there. But that aside, it's only a few weeks until Christmas and that brings up the same question every year. What to wear for the upcoming parties in the holiday season? For the family Christmas gathering, the work do, the friend's party or whatever Christmas celebration you might need a party dress for.

I have had a look and chosen some of my favourite dresses this season to give you some inspiration which I hope you like.

My first choice is from Quiz Clothing who recently launched their curve range which I have fallen in love with. They are spot on trend with their range and prices are really good as well.

I've chosen this Curve Navy Sequin Maxi Dress as one of my party dresses from their collection.

It's a stunning sequin dress that also comes in gold. I can see myself wearing this for the Christmas do at work and then again for that special big party on New Year's Eve. It screams old-fashioned glamour and sex appeal and enhances your feminine figure. The way it falls over your hips is in true Jessica Rabbit style so what's not to like about this dress? It comes up to a size 26.

Next dress up is this beautiful Simply Be By Night Sequin Disk Bardot Dress from Simply be. Also, a sequin dress cause who can have too many sequins dresses for the party season.

Isn't it stunning? I can see myself wearing this for that special New Years party. It's fun and colourful and shows off that little bit of skin that makes it very sexy without being too revealing.

This stunning evening dress from Coast took my breath away and is on my list over must have dresses for that one special occasion like an autumn or winter wedding or a special party where you have to wear a long gown. It's absolutely spectacular. I'm talking about the Viletta Pleated Maxi Dress From Coast

It's such an incredible dress with a beautiful colour and design. It's pricey so it's not for everyone's budget, but it's a stunning dress for that special occasion.

No party dress blog post is complete without a red dress and my choice this time is the Red Sparkle Skater Dress from Yours Clothing

A classic design in a pure red with sparkles. You can't go wrong with this dress. It's perfect for many different occasions. It's size friendly as it goes up to a size 34-36 and it's quite budget friendly as well.

Since I'm not working full time I won't be going to any works do, but I'm sure I will be going to a couple of parties before Christmas and another couple during Christmas and New Year so I'll be picking up at least one of these dresses.

What are you planning to wear for the upcoming holiday season?

Gorgeous Swimwear With UK Swimwear And Miraclesuit*

Ages ago I was asked to review this stunning swimsuit from Miraclesuit via UK Swimwear*, but due to health conditions, I haven't been able to review it until now. 

It's the Jillian Dip Dye Swimsuit From Miraclesuit and it's such a stunning swimsuit and beautifully crafted. Really great quality and despite it being a wrap around style I find it keeps my breasts securely tucked in with no mishaps of falling out ;-) 

Unfortunately, this swimsuit is sold out, but UK Swimwear has lots of other great designs from Miraclesuits on their website that I can highly recommend you take a look at after you've read my full review. 

 These swimsuits from Miraclesuits are expensive, but they are well worth the price as they are excellent quality and they are sturdy and feels like you get what you pay for.

There is great support around your waist, great support for your chest with soft integrated cups, great hold for your sides and the straps are very comfortable as well. They don't twist or slide down and that is something I struggle with when it comes to swimwear.

The design is stunning with its ombre effect and the wrapping design. It makes it stand out and I've been getting lots of compliments when I've been wearing this swimsuit.

The cups are a bit small for my chest, but that isn't a big surprise as I can't ever find anything that fits my breasts properly. I would say it's sufficient room for big boobs in this suit. I'm wearing size 24 here and it's a great fit for me.

 The straps are wider than normal swimsuits so I think that stops them from twisting and falling down.

 As you can see the cups are a bit small for me so I have to scoop my boobs back towards my back for them not to spill too much over the front.

 The swimsuit is amazing for both a lazy day around the pool, on the beach and a more active day hiking up to stunning waterfalls and natural pools. It is a great all-rounder and it looks stylish and can be worn with shorts for a casual look, but also teamed with a cute cover-up and a cocktail if you're at an upscale resort.

If you want to take a look at Miraclesuits collection at UK Swimwear please take a look HERE as they have lots of beautiful swimwear even if this one is unfortunately sold out.


*gifted item, but my views are all mine.

Monochrome Stripes With Yours Clothing

Back in the day I used to wear cardigans ALL the time, but the last 5-6 of years not so much as I used to wear them more to cover up my upper arms with sleeveless dresses before and that is something I've stopped doing as my confidence have become better. But when I saw this cardigan from Yours Clothing I couldn't help to pick it when they asked me to review one of their items.

5 Things Every First Timer Should Do On A Trip To Las Vegas

When it comes to finding something unique for a memorable family vacation, there's nothing quite like the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas. It's a city that provides its own assortment of food, fun, games and more to offer something for everybody. From resort style pools and roller coasters to some of the nicest restaurants in America, there's no shortage of things to do in Vegas. Here are a just a few of my suggestions for what you absolutely have to try on your own trip to Vegas.

Experience One of the Michelin-Starred Restaurants

Everyone knows that there's no shortage of amazing restaurants catering to the rich and famous, but did you know there are four different Michelin-starred places for you to sink your teeth into? If I had to pick, I'd recommend Gordon Ramsay Steak. You'd be hard pressed to find better beef in town, and the menu boasts many more of Ramsay's signature dishes including his famous beef Wellington.

The Buffet at the MGM Grand

While you don't want to miss out on the fine dining restaurants, you also shouldn't overlook the incredible buffets. The buffet at the MGM Grand will blow your mind with an incredible selection of dishes that ranges from prime rib and king crab to sushi and more. That's not to mention the all-you-can-eat shrimp! No trip to Vegas is complete without a trip to one of the famous buffets, and it's also a great way to keep the kids happy thanks to made-to-order waffles and an eye-popping assortment of ice cream toppings!

Stop By the Roulette Wheels

You can find pretty much every kind of casino game online these days, but nothing quite beats the experience of playing the real thing in the thrilling atmosphere of a Las Vegas casino. This is particularly true for games you're never going to be able to properly recreate at home, like roulette. It's also a perfect game to try your hand at for first timers. A big part of it's popularity is that it is accessible for players of any skill level. It's definitely worth your time to spin the wheel a few times and try your luck. I recommend checking out the wheel over at Caesar's Palace if you really want to feel like a high roller.

Ride The Roller Coaster at New York-New York

If you're arranging a family trip to Las Vegas. it should go without saying that you'd better make sure your hotel has a pool. But in Vegas, virtually everywhere has a pool, so why not take it one step further for the little ones and offer them a full-on roller coaster. The roller coaster at New York-New York runs through both the inside and outside of the hotel and has become one of the staples of the skyline of the Las Vegas strip. It's also a fun way to tour the casino that definitely beats walking, and takes less than half the time. Take the whole family on this fantastic thrill ride and don't forget to look at your screaming picture on the way out!

Enjoy the Spa At Mandalay Bay

With all the excitement surrounding you every second you're in Vegas, it's important to take a moment to relax and enjoy yourself. It's tough to find a more relaxing spot than the spa at Mandalay Bay. From the luxurious pools to the Eucalyptus steam rooms and heated whirlpools, there's plenty of space to stretch out and soak it all in at this spa. One day passes aren't even too expensive, and I'd highly recommend checking it out either in the middle or toward the end of your trip.

Outfit August- Day 6 and 7.

For Outfit August Day 6 and 7 I've been wearing these two outfits.

 August 6th

 The dress is from Lindy Bop I think and was a gift and I really like it. Isn't the cat print just the cutest? I'm an animal lover that is allergic to cats and dogs so the only cats I can have is on my clothes so this dress is perfect.

This size is 24 and is a really good fit for me as there is lots of stretch in the fabric. It's a silky satiny fabric. Quite unusual for Lindy Bop dresses as all the other dresses I've got from Lindy Bop are made out of a thicker cotton material. But I like this dress all the same. It's a pencil shape with a wrap around neckline style dress, and I've got into using these style dresses lately as I think they are very flattering on bigger girls and why not show off your belly instead of hiding it in flared styles all the time? I wasn't sure of the colour when I first got it as it's a rusty/browny kind of red and I'm more into the post box red, but this colour has grown on me and I think I will be using this dress a lot in the autumn.

What do you think of this cat dress? Do you like it?

August 7

The photos of this outfit are really bad, but I completely forgot to take proper photos as I was out for dinner with Mike and my family and these are the only photos I've got. This dress is an old one from Yours Clothing I think. I've had it for years and years and is still one of my favourites. It's such a cute dress. Black and white and dots. Can't go wrong with that.

Outfit August- Day 5

5 days into this challenge and I had to go with my husband to St. Albans with my mother in law as she is going to Spain on holiday. We drove her there in her car so we could borrow her car while she is away as our car broke down yesterday. Hopefully it will be fixed soon, but we don't know how much it's going to cost us to repair it. Unfortunately, another worry added onto my from before bad MH problems due to my physical health issues that keep me from working at the moment and again making things a bit tight financially. Mike needs a car to get to and from work, so it worked out well, thankfully, that she was away this week.

I chose to wear something easy and comfortable for the journey and this is what I wore.

 This top was a birthday present, but it's from Evans and is in the sale HERE for £15.
Jeans are old from Very
Shoes are old from Evans.

I liked this outfit, but think I would rather wear this top with a skirt in the future as I think it's a bit too long for jeans. Just a couple of inches or so. I like my tops a bit shorter when I wear jeans, while I was wearing a skirt I could tuck it in and it would look perfect. It's such a lovely top. Perfect for summer. Light and airy. And very pretty and girly. It's no stretch in the fabric so I would size up if you have big boobs. I'm wearing a size 26 and it's a good fit over my boobs.

Update.  Wearing it with a skirt here and I love it so much.

I will definitely be wearing this top again, but with skirts to give it a bit more shape.


Outfit August- Day 2, 3 and 4

It's time to recap the last few days and the outfits I've been wearing. It's been a few hectic days so I've not been able to post every day, but I will try and post a bit more often at least at the weekends.

August 2nd

I went to London for a travel event and it was so rainy so I opted for this dress from Pink Clove that has become a firm favourite of mine. I paired it with knee length leggings and open toe shoes(stupidly!!!) and felt really comfortable all night. Had an amazing time and even forgot to put my trusted red lipstick on as it was so much fun!!! :)

August 3rd

A mix of old stuff I've got in my wardrobe that I'm using quite a lot and I love.

Top from New Look
Vest top from Primark
Skirt from Asos
Shoes from Simply Be

It was a couple of hours of lovely sunshine so my black outfit became a bit too gloomy for the weather, but before I knew it, it was grey again so apt for English summer :D

August 4th

Simple outfit and I love wearing shorts. :)

Old t-shirt from New Look
Shorts also from New Look also old
Sandals from Pavers

I was so happy and carefree and just enjoying my walk. This was before our car broke down and I got all depressed!!! I don't know how much it will cost to repair it and since I'm not working at the moment we aren't having too much extra cash to spend so I'm quite worried.. But oh well, that is life. Car costs a lot so just have to find the money for it.

I love all three of these outfits and I think they are so cute. It's amazing how much stuff you can find just by having a little look in your drawers and wardrobe. I really like this challenge and are already looking forward to tomorrows photos!!!
