Plus Size Fashion Wishlist

Its payday for lots of us and  its the bank holiday in the UK which can only mean one thing. Letting our fingers do the walking and rinsing the worldwide web of all its fat fashion. Here's what I am loving this week.

Dungaree Dress Simply Be Buy Here
My little girl is a big Zoella fan so was quite tickled to see her best mate Sprinkle of gaiter designing  a range for a plus size brand.I might not watch her youtube vids but I am giving this dungaree dress a big thumbs up-with leggings or thick tights this is such a good Autumn/Winter transitional item.



Pink Netted skirt Simply be Buy here
And while we are nosying at the Sprinkle of glitter collection I think I may have to buy this skirt. Ever since I brought the Hennes pink ballerina skirt of dreams (which I have worn so much its slightly faded) I have been looking for another frou frou skirt to wear with my leather jacket and tees and this is rather lovely indeed. Particuarly like that the netting is underneath. Making it slightly less "fairy on top of the Christmas tree" 


Long Sequined Believe Coat-Isolated Heroes Buy here
You know when  every fibre of your being tells you that an item of clothing would improve your life immensely? Well this coat is one of them. Yes its a pink sequined duster with a fluffy collar and a heart on the back and yes its over £300 but the heart wants what the heart wants.



Asos Curve Jumper with French bulldog elbow patch Buy Here
I have a grey marl top from Simply be that I brought last year and for such a simple item it worked really hard for me, I put it with my ballerina skirts, ripped jeans and my grid trousers. So this top with its fab little elbow detail would be very welcome in my A/W closet. 

Wrap Front Trousers Buy Here
Working perfectly with that top would be these black wrap front trousers.How chic do these look and would look great with trainers or ballet pumps but equally with a pair of heels and a sparkly top be fab for after-work drinks.


Dark Floral Fit and flare dress Buy here
I just cant stop looking at this dress-its boho, but dramatic, soft yet also quite structured. Its a dressy dream basically and I need it on my body.


New Look Stone Wrap Coat Buy Here
I may have been watching too much Scandal as there is more than a whiff of Olivia Pope about this coat and yes I know pale coats are a nightmare to keep clean, but this looks so chic and is such a nice way to wear neutrals that I don't care.

Evans Sleeveless Black Jacket Buy here
One thing I find quite tricky at this time of year is making sure I am dressed for the unpredictable weather (one minute cracking the flags, the next requiring a duvet and the heating on) without being constantly sweaty because Ive overdressed. This is where luxurious layers come in. Long Sleeves tees worn with sleeveless jackets look so chic and are the perfect foil for the frankly crazy climate we seem to be experiencing here in the UK.

However you spend the bank holiday have a great one!

Prezzybox Cruelty Free Vegan Bath Products



Today's review combines some of my favourite things. Cute cruelty free bath products and spending time with my little girl. 

Good enough to eat


I love nothing better than treating myself to a bath made all yummy with delicious smelling products but despite my love of all things pink, sweet and fluffy I'm actually a bit po faced about using products which don't use sustainable ingredients,use animal products or are tested on animals-which can leave pretty slim pickings.

Which made the arrival of two box of goodies from Prezzybox.com so much more exciting. These Wild Olive products are handmade in the UK with ethically sourced ingredients  and no animals are used, harmed or in anyway involved-hurrah-I can indulge with a clear conscience.Finding vegan bath products isn't always easy so these are so welcome.As its the school holidays Baba has helped me with this review.

Time for tea
I started with the bath teabags £8.95 which are such a nice idea and a perfect gift for any tea loving friends who want to take their love of infusions into the bathroom.As the name suggests they look just like herbal teabags but rather than drink them you plop them into the tub.

This is not builders
 The combinations contained in these are heavenly including Green Tea and Tuberose, Jasmine and Rosehip and Lavender with Patchouli.
Much like a teabag you dunk these in your bath and let the ingredients gently dissolve. I really liked them as they weren't too strong and weren't greasy either. They simply left your skin soft and gently scented.Be prepared for things like lavender pods floating in the water, its all very natural and very relaxing.

For something a little bit special the Luxury bath melts £12.95 are a real show stopper. Presented in a bright pink egg carton they look like the most beautiful little cupcakes with paper cases and fondant icing made of soap. 

Just dont forget these are bath products and are not edible

The combinations are just as delicious as the Teabags.Lavender Patchouli,Hyacinth,Peony and beautiful Rose Geranium.Its so nice to find vegan bath bombs which look so amazing. Yes these are handmade but they feel very luxurious rather than basic.
These looks good enough to eat

The bath melts gently fizz like a bath bomb but unlike some others I have used don dissolve immediately which is nice. These are moisturising and left my skin very soft but yet again weren't greasy which is my usual criticism of this kind of product. In terms of colouring the water they made it look slightly cloudy but that was it. I really liked these and would definitely order again.
A carton full of yumminess
These would make such beautiful gifts so I will be bookmarking Prezzybox and for all my readers who are keen to use cruelty free bath products made in the UK I would definitely encourage you to check out Wild Olive


Babas verdict was "these were really lovely, they looked like cake but smelt of flowers and I'm so glad they don't cause harm to animals as we love all animals in our house"

The British Plus Size Awards 2015

Every year at around this time you may see various shootouts from plus size babes asking for advice on evening dresses, sparkly clutch bags, cocktail dress vs full length. It can only mean one thing, the British plus size awards are getting closer and one of the best excuses of the year for plus size women to get glamed up is nearly upon on.


Me last year with my beautiful blogger friends


The event includes a three course meal and lots of wine
the entertainment is always fab

Not only is the plus size awards a lovely twinkly red carpet event it's also an opportunity for bloggers, retailers, entertainers and movers and shakers in the plus size world to be acknowledged. Voted for by the public it's a chance to acknowledge those making a difference when so often anything involving  fat people is ignored by mainstream media. 
Whether it's doffing your cap to the retailer who always makes sure you can access the best fashion in your size, or giving a nod to the celebrity who you feel is repping plus size particularly well.Its a great way to spread positivity and support, oh and get to wear really sparkly clothes which is always welcome.

The event is always held at  the best venues ( this year it's at the Raddsiosn Blue on Portland street London which is gorgeous) and features a three course dinner, drinks and entertainment. This year we will be treated to girl band the Honeybuns, Jazz singer Tom Steele, comedian Ashleigh Owen, even a burlesque troop.I'm particularly looking forward to seeing headline act Jess and the bandits its a really packed entertainment program and should be brilliant
Headline band Jess and the bandits

Of course there are also the awards. Hopefully this year more of the nominated brands will attend as it's always so much fun. Last year Curvy Kate swept the board and their table was hilarious-they were definitely the life and soul of the event.

Me winning last year
I'm nominated for two awards best plus size blog and best fashion blogLast year I felt very honoured to win best blog and would love to repeat it. Also my husband Nicky Rockets is up for best designer and that would be amazing and so well deserved so if you would like to cast a vote for us click here
Tickets for this event are available here hope to see you there.
