National Bikini Day

It is pretty fitting that it is National Bikini Day today seen as im sat here in one. Summer can be a scary time and the thoughts of getting into swimwear can be off putting. It seems to be really trendy at the moment to be body positive. That is great to see but we have to remember what might work or be right for one won’t be for another. Even i who doesn’t give a shit have my bad days. We are human and it is natural to have these moments. I spoke on my stories earlier in the week about my body changing so much especially this past year. Illness changes my body daily and the evidence is…

Nike Plus Size Mannequin

As you may have seen, Nike added a plus sized mannequin to their London flagship floor this week and well there was uproar. They also added a para-sport model too but i bet you didn’t see or hear about that. I love to see, pardon the pun, healthy discussion on these things but some comments and articles have gone wayyy too far. I won’t even credit the one that got me most cause it deserves no more publicity but the statements where just ridiculous! As if any of ye on here are gonna be like ‘k i HAVE to put on 8 stone to look like Kiera’! It has only worked in reverse like that for years because for so long as…

Fifty Friday || Spring Summer Mix & Match Looks – Penneys

I am absolutely delighted to be back with my first Real Life Fifty Friday of 2019. Even more delighted that it is a collaboration with our nations sweetheart – Penneys.

I am delightful i know lol but hey this is life so. Spring Summer Trends – Penneys I decided…

Wide Fit Anklets

I snapped these pics while i was in Marrakech to show you a little Summer hack that i use each and every year. I’ve always found it very hard to get a wide fit anklet to fit comfortably around my ankle. I had to come up with a comfortable and readily available solution myself. For the last forever i have been buying these bracelet packs from Penneys for just that reason. Seriously affordable at only €4 for a multi pack. There is lots of stretch in the beaded elastic so you can just pop onto your ankle. Layer them up, match colours to your outfit, have some fun. Even if they break off you have loads left. Also compared to…

Nasty Gal Extended Sizes

I have spent the last few weeks singing a mash up of ” Christina you Nasty” and “Nasty put some clothes on” with a bit of “Gotta love my little Nasty Girl” on the side. An added bonus to this post, now i’ve some retros added to the playlist so it’s a win win. Nasty Gal has always tugged on my heart strings. I remember in ye olden times when all i had was following them on Tumblr and winging about huge import charges. I adored how cool and quirky the brand was. Ever see the series Girl Boss on Netflix? Ya so that’s a true story about how the Nasty Gal brand was started by the Girl Boss herself,…
