Third Time Even Luckier: Shooting with Velvet

It's Valentine's Day. And while couples across the world cram themselves into chain restuarants, pay over the odds for roses, and buy each other heart shaped shit (no, you're single and bitter!) this single gal is celebrating, in the words of the late great Ms Houston, the Greatest Love of All. And the glorious pictures from my latest shoot with Velvet of plus size mag, Volup2.

Plus+: Win with Navabi and Bethany Rutter

If you've been following plus size influencers for a little while you will probably have heard of Bethany Rutter. She's been an outspoken voice in the plus size community for many years, and has written for a number of publications, as well as having her own style blog. The last 12 months have been impressively productive, even by Bethany's standards. Last year she collaborated with Navabi to create her very own Arched Eyebrow collection. And this month see the launch of Plus+, a book of  street style photos of fashion forward plus women looking fabulous, currated and edited by Bethany. And if you have a flick through it you might even see a familiar face (in case that wasn't obvious, it's mine!).

The sight of suited and booted city workers, tipsy and wearing festive headgear at 6 in the evening. I am full of all the Christmassy spirit (and all the glitter) and I really pack in all the yule time fun at this time of year. But damn, can that take a toll! Sometimes, despite my love for the holly and the ivy, I find this time of year gives my mental health a real bashing. (And I can only imagine it would be even worse if I really hated all things jolly). This time last year I was still really battling with my mental health - in the build up to Christmas I really struggled with my anxiety, and afterwards I really spiralled into a serious depression. So this year I am trying to do things a little differently, and I thought I'd share my tips for having a mentally healthy Christmas...
