Non-Chocolate Advent Calendars!

Unknown_FotorSo today’s the first of December, we’re officially only 25 days away from Christmas ladies!! And more importantly we’re at advent time! Now whilst I love my choccy advent calendar, I also know that the chocolate doesn’t love me or my body! :(

But this article from Huffington Post has some amazeee advent calendars with no chocolate in them! Tesco are doing a beauty advent calendar like Benefits (but thankfully cheaper!!) with a different beauty product in it every day! Or there’s also a snazzy nail polish one! Might have to get me one of these!!

The Most Beautiful Dress EVER?!

1413741476701_Image_galleryImage_ROME_ITALY_OCTOBER_19_Lil_FotorOMG Guys you are going to love this dress that Lily Collins wore to the Love Rosie Premiere! It is so beaut!! The dress is a wonderful mixture of shades of purple and has the right level of floaty that doesn’t make it look totally snobby. Plus the cutout bit at the top makes a bit more interesting and funky. I want this dress!

Not quite sure it’d look as good on my bigger body as it does on her tiny little frame but I want it anyway! Hopefully with my next bingo win hey?

Reminds me I’M GOING ON A DATE TOMORROW. Yes an actual date with an actual man.. to see Love Rosie! I am so excited! Will give you a lowdown tomorrow..

Loving Lauren!

Screenshot 2014-10-15 15_FotorHas anyone seen Lauren Pope’s new collection for In The Style? It’s amazing! I love it!!

I particularly love her Palazzo trousers in both powder blue and sand! They’re a bargain and their bagginess helps to cover up all those Krispy Kremes I’ve eaten that’ve gone straight to my thighs (diet starts tomorrow!!!) I also really love her Full midi houndstooth skirt, which would be great for a classy night out with the girls!

I feel like Lauren’s had such a tough couple of weeks with everything that happened on TOWIE with Lewis cheating on her and generally being such a top class idiot. I love her and I hope her collection does really well!

A whole LOTT-a beautiful!

1410770412258_wps_20_Picture_Shows_Pixie_Lott__FotorIs it me or does every picture of Pixie Lott get more and more gorgey?!?!

I love this mini dress she’s wearing. The pattern and the detail on it is beautiful – I think this is my ultimate thinspiration! I really wish I could wear something like that. Her legs are just amazing it’s something I really hope one day I can pull off :(

And even down to that animal print clutch – it’s just beautiful! Think I might start having to tune into Strictly guys, I feel a girl crush coming on!!


Benefit Beauty Exclusive!

Benefit-Theyre-Real-Push-Up-Liner_lash-hugging-gel-liner-pen_FotorGuess who’s got a beauty exclusive for my favey Bingo lovers!


Benefit’s across the UK – not just for us Essex babes – are doing an amazing thing where you can go and take in your old eyeliner bottles and swap them for their new eyeliner they’ve just released!! I did mine yesterday and tried the product and its amazing and you can take any old bottle in whether its empty, full or ten years old! Brilliant!

Red is the new black!

1409047604_Untitled-1_FotorThe Emmy awards on Monday night looked amazing. Where was the fabulous, famous Suzie’s invite? One day, hey ladies?

The men in their suits looked buff and the women and their dresses were beautiful. I particularly loved this red trend everybody has been talking about. All of the ladies pictured here look gorgey.

My favourite dress belonged to Clare Danes. Just look at that beautiful lace. If only I was a size 10 with a waist like that. I also love the statement detail around the neck – just lush. Plus that long full skirt would cover my currently whiter than white legs – perfect!

Pixie Perfect!

1408286591368_wps_1_Pandora_Pixi2_Event_LowRe_FotorLook how beautiful Pixie Lott looks in her new photos for Pandora, talk about inspo and woman crush wednesday. She’s showing us blondes how it should be done.

Her make-up is so natural too and she still looks completely perfect. Plus when you actually get past that beautiful face and body and get to the rings they are also absolutely perfect too. Well done Pandora!

Probably wouldn’t look as elegant on my fat fingers but hey? A girl wouldn’t mind being treated should anyone so wish… *ahem*

Break up Beauty!

breakups-to-makeup_FotorI love my plus-size fashion blogs. Let’s not lie that’s what inspired me to write in the first place and I’ve seen a few really amazeeee posts about this new brand in NYC called Break ups to Make up. It’s hotter than Queen Beyonce right now and that’s saying something!

Inspired by a break up she went through, a fabulous make-up artist invented the new brand which has catchy (and insanely true) witty comments printed on t-shirts, make up bags etc. My faves are the perfect “Love raised me, lipstick saved me,” and “Losing you hurt but losing my make up bag would be a tragedy.”

I can’t wait to see what else this amazing woman produces and I can’t wait for it to hit Essex fashion, who knows maybe I’m breaking the trend first?! Hollaaaaa.

The Man Bun

Jake-Gyllenhaal_FotorIt has slowly started sneaking in. We thought if we hid it might go away but each time I go into town I see more and more. The man bun.

Men everywhere have been starting to wear their hair in a bun and it seems the nation are split on how they feel about it. A poll on The Mirror website showed an almost 50-50 split in opinion of whether the new fad is a hit or miss, with Jared Leto and David Beckham being voted the best wearers of the man bun. But I can tell you one thing it is DEFINITELY a miss for me! It’s a Golden Balls phase I’d like to have forgotten and I’m so sad even Harry Styles and Bradley Cooper are starting to wear them! 

Please, please, please God’s of fashion and style, don’t do this to me. I’m missing my short back and sides already.

Love it Lily!

Lily-Allen_FotorI am absolutely loving Lily Allen’s festival hair for Glastonbury posted in the Mirror today!!

The hair is a multicoloured mixture of pinks, oranges, blues and purples – it is beautiful. And teamed with those pink watermelon shorts (which I need for when I’m a size 10, tell me where I can get them guys!) it is just her greatest look yet!

Do you think it would suit me? I’m not sure it would but I would absolutely love it anyway! Who knows, if I have another proper Bingo win soon I might just have to pop into the salon and treat myself, woo woo!
