Summer is coming, I can feel it (I mean everyone can, this bloody country is finally starting to thaw) and with it comes holiday plans (yay) and swimwear shopping. For a lot of plus size babes this can be a bit of a source of consternation - swimwear has a special power to make us feel bad about our bodies. Mainly because we have to hear all the gross, destructive bullshit about bikini bodies (reminder - to get a bikini body all you have to do is put a bikini on your body ffs) and because for a long time the options for plus size women were really shite. But, horray! No longer! We now have lots of options and much swim fabulousness. So let me help you navigate this lycra labyrith with my ultimate plus size babe swim wear shopping guide!

I don't know about you, bu my skin is a completely different beast in winter to what it is in summer! I grew up in a country where the climate varied very little year round, so when I moved to the UK ten years ago I was shocked by the differences in my skin depending on the season. This year my skin went a bit haywire as we entered into Autumn, and so I reached out to people online to see what they used to take care of their winter skin, and I also went back to some of my favourites, and I have come up with a selection of products that have kept my skin pretty happy all winter long!

After all the glitz ang colour of the festive season I often find myself returning to black in January. I've always loved some black in my wardrobe, and I find it easy to wear with my colouring. Plus it's the month of lazing and lounging (well for me it is anyway) so comfort in dressing is a must. I recently chose this Black Embroidered Mesh dress from Lovedrobe because I love the dobby mesh overlay combined with the embroidery, and because it's super comfy over a pair of leggings with some ankle boots, but it still looks like you made an effort - my favourite kind of dressing!
