You gotta love an ASOS sale when they come around, don't ya? I spotted this floral beauty on ASOS about three months ago and patiently waited for the day when it would hit one of ASOS's frequent sales before I snapped it up. What stood out to me about the dress was its' asymmetrical 'bat' sleeve on one side; granted it doesn't exactly look the same as it does on the model, infact it could be mistaken for looking like an extra piece of random material, but I feel that the business of the print more then compensates for it. I sized up in this dress as I thought that the arms may be a bit tight as I'm larger up top. Because of the size up, it looks pretty long and baggy on me but I don't mind as I find it to be quiet charming #bagladyalert. Also, LOOK AT THE PRINT. Makes my nose itch just looking at it - I'm in love!
I think I own about a good 4 or 5 floral dresses now. This time last year, my entire wardrobe consisted of blacks, navy blues and browns; mayyyyyybe a little green if I was feeling frisky. Style blogging and being within the plus sized blogging community has been instrumental in increasing my confidence and giving me that confidence to wear pieces that I normally wouldn't dream of wearing out in public. Do I still dislike certain parts of my body? Hell yeah and I probably always will, but life is just far too short to worry about what other people may think. I still have my insecure days where I'll lock myself in my room, look in the mirror and just cry, but those occasions are now few and far between. Anyhoo I didn't mean for this to go down the soppy route, I'll shaddap now LOL. Enjoy!
There are so many different textures of nail polish these days, it's hard to keep up! For now, I'm kind of obsessed with the whole matte thing, but I've found that it's so hard to find a matte texture that actually goes on smoothly.
I take my hat off to all the ladies out there who are able to put on a full face of makeup everyday in this heat, because Lord knows I never could. Not gonna lie; I detest London in the Summer, with our prickly, humid heat and the London Underground being hotter than Satan's nut sack and all that. I especially hate the situations when you get on the tube, makeup looking raggedy and sticky and you get the horrid feeling that everyone within the tube car is staring at your melted, gooey face. Ew.
I am the worst with update/scheduled posts - I always start off well, and then tend to drift off and forget about 'em.I commend those of you who can do these weekly posts - such discipline!
Anyway, the past few weeks have gone by in a real blur for me. I was ill for much of the month and have only recently started to feel a bit better; damn asthma. I've taken a good look at this blog and have realised that I have been sorta neglecting the 'beauty' aspect of it for a couple of months now so I'm going to try as much as possible to do as many beauty posts as I can to create a more sturdy equilibrium.
