I just love the tulip cut to the front, it's so comfy casual but with an edge, I can see me dressing this up too with wet look leggings and heels, it's kind of laid back sexy... I like it!
Ha sorry about that one, Michael was making me laugh, but thought I'd leave it in. This is another one of my uniform type outfits, I have to run to the post office most days to post out orders for Clumsy Pickle and pick Poppy up from school so outfits like this just make sense in my life!
Have you picked any thing up from the sale?

We visited our local sushi restaurant, somewhere Michael and I love, and I thought it would be an experience for my folks and for Poppy.
The guys at Curvissa had sent me this gorgeous striped blazer the day before actually so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to road test it. A relaxed lunch and a sunny-ish day.
I'd been lusting after this blazer for ages so I was really chuffed when I was sent it. It's totally not what I expected, I thought it would be a structured jacket made from a thick canvas type material, but it is in fact a heavy jersey which for me is actually a million times better. It's more comfortable and versatile in this fabric.
I teamed it with a simple white vest and rolled up jeans. A kind of look I keep repeating (sorry for being a clothes bore) but it really is so easy to wear! I accessorised with a vintage handbag and leopard print sandals.
We had a really lovely lunch, so tasty and the old fogies enjoyed trying something a bit different! And finally Michael caught me off guard. A rare laughing shot... See I do smile sometimes!

I hope I did her justice, cos she's an absolute babe! Lets bask in her babeliness...
All together now... "I'm a model, you know what I mean, and I shake my little tush on the catwalk...."

I chose a simple black jersey midi dress with cap sleeves.
I guess there's not an awful lot I can say about this dress, I mean lets face it it's a plain black jersey dress, but it was a lovely soft jersey, relatively thin, but not bad quality. I'm really interested to see if they intend on growing the range or adding a wider range of basics at least, because I don't know about you but items like this are the back bone of my wardrobe, they're easy to dress up or down and with the addition of bright accessories make a simple but chic outfit.
And of course, I thought I'd get a butt shot in for good measure...

Hello! Hope you're all enjoying your weekend. I was very kindly sent some skin care products from US range Lady Soma. Lady Soma is an all natural, healthy and holistic range of Skincare supplements, based in New York they ship world wide.
I was sent three products from the range....
The Antioxidant Berry Masque, Renewal Serum and Lady Mint Tingle Lip Balm.
First off, the lip balm is really nice, feels great on and isn't greasy and really does what it says on the tin, it tingles, which is lovely.
Secondly the Berry Masque. I was excited to try the masque as I very rarely take the time to do any sort of pampering nowadays so it was nice that because I had been very kindly sent these products to review it was an enforced moment of self care! The masque has a lovely berry scent with a grainy texture. Following the instructions I applied it for the designated time and washed it off with warm water. Sadly it left my skin a bit red and itchy, as with most skin care it's just not going to work for everyone's skin and for me, this didn't work. When I mentioned this to the lovely Stacey at Lady Soma she did advise that this is a strong product and some people will have a reaction to it. I think I'll try it again, just to see how I react this time.
Lastly was the renewal serum, which came in a pump action bottle. It's a thick, non greasy liquid that smells really fresh, quite herbal, it was lovely to apply and left my skin feeling smooth. I also had a burn on my hand at the time that was nearly healed, but I applied the serum to this which made it feel really nice and soothed the skin as it was tightening and healing.
Overall I was really pleased with the range, despite the masque not working for my skin, the serum and lip balm are just lovely. You can see the rest of the range here...

Well that's exactly what I did last weekend, off I toddled to lovely Leeds for the Plus Size Clothes swap. Held every couple of months now at the Wharf Chambers, the event is great way to give your wardrobe a refresh without spending any money!
I only took a couple of bits with me this time as I had a case full of Plus North flyers, but I was lucky enough to pick up some lovely nail varnishes and the two dresses....
The top one from ASOS I think started out as a playsuit but looks like it's been modified to be a tunic top which is fine by me! The bottom dress, still with taxes on is from South at Very and will look great in the autumn with thick tights and biker jacket.
As mentioned it was a hot day so I wore my lovely flowy maxi skirt from Simply Be, a vest top and cute sleeveless denim shirt from Primark.
And whatever does a group of gorgeous chunky gals do after an afternoon of hardcore clothes swapping? Go and grab some grub of course!
Thanks for the photo Lyndsey! X x
