Hello, Is Anybody There?

So…its been 8 months. My blog took a massive back seat for a while. Life has been crazy busy, and its been a mixture of bad and good.

The first good news…in the 8 months I’ve been gone, I met an amazing guy, and we got engaged! Life has been amazing for the most part over the last 8 months.

There has been a few little hiccups with mental health stuff, but i’ll save you that story!

**INCOMING PICTURE OVERLOAD!!**

 

The majority of the pictures above are from our engagement shoot, done by CAJ Media.

You Can Find Him Here!

We met up at Rickmansworth Aquadrome, and the time passed so quickly. Neither of us are particularly great at posing for pictures, so Charlie and Mim just worked around us being all “Lovey Dovey” towards each other.

He also made us an amazing video, which went down a storm with my friends and family!

You Can Find That Here!

So I reckon its about time to jump back onto the blogging wagon. Keep your eyes peeled over the next few days for halloween themed posts!

I’ll Take That As A Compliment!

So, Remember me?

It’s been a while since I have blogged as I have been working like a crazy person in my “Real Life” job.

But I’m back with a post about how we can turn negative comments into a compliment. We’ve all  had our fair share of people saying “You shouldn’t be wearing that” or “That doesn’t look good” but now is the time for us to change around that negative and make it a positive!

Simply Be Printed Wrap Jumpsuit – £29.00

First up, patterns and prints. Personally I have seen SO many women in patterns or prints that look amazing, so I would go for this amazing patterned jumpsuit. Paired with some gladiator style sandals and a denim jacket in the summer would look fab!

Simply Yours Bikini Set – £35.00

This is a kind of 2 in 1. A bikini and horizontal stripes! Both seem to be a big No-No if you are a plus size woman, and I say “break the rules” and invest in this killer high waisted striped bikini set. The high waisted bottoms provide enough coverage so there’ll be no chance of showing off your bum!

Simply Be Crop Top – £12.80 (in the sale!)

Dare to bare and embrace your curves with this simple high neck crop top! Team it with a high waisted midi skirt, or a pair of high waisted jeans or trousers! Add a pair of ankle boots and leather jacket and you’ve got a remarkably fashionable outfit that looks effortlessly cool.

midi skirt

Sprinkle of Glitter Netted Skirt – £48.00

“You shouldn’t show off your legs”…Well, we’ve all heard this once in our lifetime right? Well, this midi skirt from the Sprinkle of Glitter range at Simply Be is going to change your mind. Midi skirts are a fabulous choice if your aren’t the most confident about your legs but want to start being a bit more adventurous. The netting underneath the skirt add fullness which will balance out your figure if you are bigger busted/small hipped.

Please check out this post from Simply Be for more ways to turn a negative comment into a compliment! Click Here

So in conclusion, we should all start wearing whatever we please and not let society tell us what we should and shouldn’t wear.

Remember, the best thing a woman can wear is her confidence! Embrace your own style and uniqueness!

Strawberry Fields

Hi Lovelies!

Warning – This will be a picture heavy post 🙂

Last weekend me and my mama travelled up to Great Yarmouth to spend some time with my family and to go strawberry picking. The weekend turned out to be a bit of a disaster! The Pick Your Own farm we had planned to go to was shut due to bad weather, so we ended up travelling to Rackheath to a place called White House Farm. The whole place was lovely, and a blogger/photographers paradise. Cute little chalk signs, quirky designs on the walls and animals roaming free.

We went with my 2 cousins, Michael and Marie, and we took Michael’s children along with us too. The weather was a bit wet and miserable, but it didn’t stop us having fun, and it didn’t stop me from getting some lovely pictures.

The farm had some really quirky pieces, such as the bike park, which actually had 2 bikes hanging on the wall. All of the flowers and plants were planted in bath tubs, sinks and other household objects, and it really felt like somewhere ‘fashionable” that would be situated in somewhere like Soho, or Camden Market.
All of the fruit picking sections had cute chalkboard style signs and the sign on the wall is written in such an informal way that is comes across as super friendly and inviting.

The farm also had a farm shop, which had the most amazing looking cakes, and tables made of recycled stable doors. I resisted the cakes, although they looked incredible they were pretty overpriced. I’ve included a couple of sneaky pictures I snapped of my cousins, as I really love candid photos that capture the moment.

Some more experimental and sneak photos! My mum just happened to have a handful of strawberries when I realised that her holding them like she is in the picture could look really beautiful, so I immediately made her stop and hold them so I could snap a picture. The flower is a Strawberry Plant flower, which is edited to make the bigger flower look sharper. I use Instagram to edit all my pictures. The bottom right picture is Michael and his son, again, it was a sneaky picture that they had no idea I took!

Onto my outfit for the day. It wasn’t incredibly practical, but I wanted to look nice. I picked my usual high waisted skinny jeans from Matalan, and a grey top which was kindly gifted to my by Mookie (www.mookieslife.com). Over the top I wore my new lilac boyfriend coat from Matalan also, which was only £12 in the sale! On my feet I wore a pair of flat ankle boots from BHS.

OOTD2

I think we should end this blog post with an arty shopping basket shot…I got some funny looks and a few giggles from my little cousins when they saw me arranging the items I was buying. The farm shop was pretty expensive, so I just got the strawberries we had picked, a can of San Pellegrino Lemonade and my mum got a Posh Pop Pear & Elderflower cordial.

Hope you enjoyed this post!

Miller&Carter & Outfit Of The Night

Hi Lovelies!

Todays post is going to be a little round up of my Dad’s birthday meal, with an outfit post mixed in. We went for steak at Miller & Carter in Wheathampstead and it was incredible! I have never had such good food at a restaurant, and thats saying something as I am pretty fussy.

    FoodShot

Pulled Pork BBQ Burger and Fries…with raw broccoli in the coleslaw..YUM!

I chose to have the burger, as I had saved my Slimming World syn allowance for the day so I could have a dinner that I knew I would really enjoy.

ChateauBriand

Chateaubriand with Onion Loaf, Beef Dripping sauce and tomato.

My parents shared the Chateaubriand….oh my goodness! I tried a bit and it was like butter. So full of flavour and so soft.

FamilyShot

Me & My Parents. I love this picture, we were posing but something made us giggle and this was the end result 🙂

Parents

My Ma & Pa ❤

Chocolate Brownie with Vanilla Ice Cream

Oh…My…God. This was like a chocolate hug. There is no other way to describe it other than chocolate heaven.
