As I'm writing this I've got the heating on full blast and a cuppa on the side, winter is here and it's bloody chilly. I spend most of my life being being cold and uncomfortable, even in the heights of summer I still get goosebumps so when this time of year rolls around I need to gear up.



In the last few weeks I've invested in numerous jumpers, brushed cotton bed sheets, pyjamas, and even a few thermal pieces in in a bid to try and stay toasty through the winter months. If I could strap a hot water bottle to my body permanently I would.

The temperature has plummeted lately and I've been virtually living in my snuggly pyjamas. The second I get in from work its off with my clothes and straight into my comfies. I actually think it's really weird that anyone would want to chill around their house in outdoor clothes, I'm all about comfort.



I've not counted but I would take a guess and say that I have as many pairs of pajamas as I do normal clothes and I'm 100% okay with that. I've been wearing my fluffy Hunkemoller pyjamas the most in the last few weeks and they really do keep me warm. I was kindly gifted a pair of pyjamas of my own choice from the site and whilst there were so many super cute options I chose the thickest snugglist set I could.

My set is actually fluffy pyjama bottoms and a fluffy zip up hoodie. I don't know if most people would sleep in a hoodie but I do and it keeps me very toasty. I do wear a plain black vest underneath but I guess you don't really need to. I've been wearing the new set practically nonstop and it's safe to say I'm a big fan. That being said I do think it's a bit pricey. The bottoms retail at £19 and the hoodie top sells for £34.


I'm not sure if I would be able to drop this sort of money on pyjamas again anytime soon but I do love the cute winter print and the super snuggly material they are made from. They've certainly kept me cosy in recent weeks and will continue to do so until they are old and worn like most of my other sets.

SNUG AS A BUG IN HUNKEMOLLER PJS

So I've got a confession to make. I've never been to a proper festival. At almost 24 years old I've never seen the likes of V-fest, Glastonbury, or even Bestival. As someone who's such a free spirit and loves spending cosy nights in a tent you'd think I'd be an experienced festival veteran by now, but nope.
The one festival I have been to is Elmfest. Not heard of it? Of course you haven't. It's a teeny tiny homemade festival on a small campsite in the middle of Gloucestershire. Although it's small, it's fun and friendly and pretty local to us so that's perfect. It also allows dogs and campfires on site so we can take our angel George and keep cosy when the sun has gone down!

Now, just because Elmfest isn't a real festival doesn't mean I'm not going to dress up and treat it like one! I'm probably not going to get my first taste of a big festival for a few years yet unfortunatly so when I knew Emlfest was coming back around I took full advantage. I started planning outfits and buying face glitter! I actually invested in some biodegradable body glitter for the weekend, which I'm hoping to create some fun makeup looks with in the coming weeks.

Although a lot of my outfit plans changed due to the cold and then the extreme heat we had one day, this outfit I wore on the Saturday night stayed the same. It's not the most generic festival wear, after all I am in a random field with about 200 other people, I can't really go all out. Its not like a normal festival, it's less anonymous, if I did the whole glitter tits thing people would remember! So I went for a comfortable outfit with happy carefree vibes to it. I feel like this is something I would actually wear to a festival if I did get the chance. Maybe I would add more sparkles and a bit of funky headwear but the base of a good festival outfit is definitely there.

Hopefully one year I'll get to see one of the big UK festivals. I'll probably hate every second of being claustrophobically close to people and the horrible smelly toilets but I'm sure it will be an experience to remember. Until then I'll carry on enjoying my little local Elmfest with a roaring fire, a couple of cans of Dark Fruits and some of my fave people.

CUTE CASUAL & COMFORTABLE - THE PERFECT FESTIVAL OUTFIT


Holidays are coming! The Summer kind! I've already posted a huge list of all the summer clothes I wish I could run out and buy, but today I'm talking specifically about swimwear. When its time to start shopping for my summer hols nothing stresses me out more than swimwear. Being a bigger girl I find it really hard to buy cute pieces that also work well for my body shape.

Well I've taken the stress out for all you curvy ladies by putting together a list of my favourite swimwear. I've popped in a selection of 'sculpting' swimwear for if you're not feeling that confident, some teeny weeny bikinis for if you feel banging regardless of your wobbly bits, and a bit of everything else in between. Basically I've included pretty much every type of swimming costume because size doesn't matter and you can wear whatever you feel great in this summer!


Whilst putting this list together I noticed that the 'plus size' swimwear seemed to be very boring and more often than not plain black. Obviously us bigger girls don't want to draw attention to ourselves  by wearing the cute things the 'normal girls' do. Well fuck 'em, when you buy your new swimwear this year buy the most gorgeous & the most colourful items you can and wear them with pride!

Do you have a favourite piece?

THE BEST SWIMWEAR FOR LARGER LADIES


Erm so I guess its Summer?! How is it May already please? I have no clue where the year has gone! I'm sure it was only last month that the UK stopped still because of the horrendous snow? The snow that just kept coming and coming but nope now its 20+ degreess, fab. So its time to stuff away those jumpers (for now) and whip out your snazzy Summer dresses! 

Its been so long since I wore anything other than jeans and a baggy jumper that I really can't remember what I even wear when the suns out. Honestly, my style staples are black and black and more black, so how am I going to dress for this warm weather? Well I think a little shopping spree is in order and it would only be fair to share my favourite summer style pieces with you all!

THE SUMMER STYLE PIECES YOU NEED!

Do you have that one outfit that you know is pretty fucking basic but you love it and feel banging in it anyway? Well this is that outfit for me. The black jeans, leather jacket, converse, band tee combo is my go to look when I can't be arsed but I still want to look kind of put together, and I think it works. This is probably the universal basic bitch outfit but I literally don't care. 


I wasn't actually planning on taking any style photos the day I wore this outfit. I know it isn't anything special, but I felt great, the lighting was pretty decent and my surroundings were kind of cute too. These photos were actually taken on a day out to Lichfield with my mom who stepped up to be my photographer for the afternoon and considering these pics were taken on my phone by a woman who still isn't really sure how to use it, I don't think they are half bad! They were also never meant for my blog either, I only really wanted some photos for Instagram but I thought I might as well share them here too, thats why they are square!

I pretty much always plan my outfit shoots, I'm not really fun or spontaneous enough to take daily outfit snaps and I wear the same comfy clothes over and over again if I'm honest. I know this outfit and the photos aren't going to blow anyones mind but I kind of like how raw they are. This is an actual real outfit that I would wear day to day and although the quality isn't really up to my usual standard I might start taking outfit snaps like this more regularly. What do you guys think?



Also just a little side note, how fucking cute is my new silver backpack, please? I won it at a Brum Bloggers Accessorize event a couple of weeks ago and it is literally my new favourite bag. I'd been eyeing it up all night to be honest, so when I was given the choice of any non leather bag in the shop (yep I almost cried) I decided to take this little metallic beauty home with me. It's already been on quite a few day trips and bike rides so I know I'm going to get a lot of use out of it this summer!

BASIC BITCH OUTFIT

Happy Easter! I hope you are all having a fab Sunday eating lots of chocolate goodies! I'm not going to lie, I've already eaten most of my eggs as everyone made the mistake of giving them to me early, ooops. So with the chocolate long gone I thought I would treat myself to something that lasts a little bit longer, some gorgeous pastel pieces.

It doesn't seem like it, but Spring is on its way and with the warmer seasons comes lighter brighter clothing and accessories. Although I'm a big lover of mostly black outfits, I do love a pop of colour here and there and so I've rounded up some of my favourite pastel items you can buy right now.

- Pastels for Spring -
So what's on your Spring wishlist? Are you busting out the colours or are you sticking with your Winter wardrobe for now? I know I'll be wearing jumpers well into the Summer months but I'm holding out hope that I can start to wear some pretty pastels sometime soon!

Thanks for reading!
