Today it really has felt autumnal, to the point I heard my mum say those magic words
“Hol, shall we put the heating on?”
Autumn is actually my favourite season. I love how you can get nice and cosy under a blanket with the candles and if you’re lucky enough an open fire and watch all the TV you like.
I have even started looking on Pinterest for fashion inspiration for this colder weather so I thought I’d share a few bits I like with you.
There will be more autumn themed posts throughout Sept and October so keep an eye out
Til next time… Much loves
I paint my nails myself, I’ve never been and had any sort of extensions or gels. My nails are natural and I’m proud of them… Not so when they break right in the quick but let’s hope they don’t do that for a while or else they’ll all have the chop 🙈
So here’s this week’s look
Taken out in my garden as there was sunlight and needed to take advantage of it.
These are the nail varnishes used and I love the 60 second ones from Rimmel.
The technic one is very old but still adds a little something to a plain colour.
I reckon the price was about £9 for all 3 so that’s alot cheaper than going to the salon.
In your bedroom whether it’s just you or you have the company of someone else too, don’t you like to feel confident and sexy yet comfortable at the same time?
I know i do.
Well i was approached by a lovely lady from UK LINGERIE and she asked if i would like to pick out a few bits from their website.
Being a bit curvy i wanted something that would compliment me but look sensual and pretty at the same time.
You would never know i have a huge surgery scar because the knickers are concealing it so well. The bra is so comfortable and gives enough cleavage without being too over the top, but to be fair i don’t have much always.
I am due to have a urostomy bag in the upcoming months and i no doubt will still feel amazing in these shorts plus supporting a bag too. This is the lepel fiore black and gold padded bra and the lepel fiore black and gold shorts
I also thought i don’t have any nice pyjamas that could double up as loungewear, so that’s what i went in search of and then i found these beauties.
These are the Dreamgirl off the shoulder pj set
They are the softest pair of pyjamas I’ve ever come across.
I have pulled the top up a bit so you could see the waistband on the bottoms. I’m a complete sucker for pink as you know but the bit of lace detailing just makes them even more lovely.
The off the shoulder look gives a bit of a sensual look about them.
I got these in a size 12 and they fit like a glove. My bra was also in my normal bra size so they really are true to my size.
I will definitely be purchasing fromUK LINGERIE in the future and a few of my friends have said they will too which is great.
I hope you enjoyed reading and I’ll see you in my next post.
I was browsing on good old ASOS and if you didn’t know this you will now… when online shopping I put pink in the search but no matter what site I’m shopping on. I guess I’m that person that’s never grown out of the obsession with the colour pink.
So here’s the thing, in the summery months I fancy standing out a bit, you know making a statement. So I thought let’s have a look on ASOS at their trainers and you guessed it in the colour pink.
Here is my findings
FILA PINK DISRUPTOR II PREMIUM TRAINERS
these I really can’t decide if I think they are ugly or kinda cool… they are £85.00 I would definitely stand out in a pair of these.
BUFFALO LONDON FLATFORM CHUNKY TRAINERS IN PINK
I had a pair of these in black when I was 18 and wore them all the time. I remember they were £89.00 and I’d spent my birthday money on them. I am shocked at the price now. They have doubled to £180. I do love the colour but I wouldn’t ever spend that much on a pair of trainers.
NIKE WHITE AND PINK AIR MAX 95 TRAINERS
Out of all the trainers I’ve stumbled across these ones would be the ones I’d get…if I went to the gym of course or ran miles and miles. Unfortunately I can’t justify spending £130.00 when I won’t be walking in them. They’d just be looking pretty in my wheelchair.
CONVERSE X HELLO KITTY ONE STAR TRAINERS
Maybe if I was 10 years younger I would possibly buy these Hello Kitty themed converse trainers but I’m in my 30s I don’t think I would look very grown up in them. They are quite a reasonable price at £56.00. Maybe if the cat was off the back I may of bought them.
VANS EXCLUSIVE RED AND PINK CHECKERBOARD SLIP ON TRAINERS
These I totally dig but unfortunately at the mo they don’t have them in my size only an 8 or 9 and I’m a 5.5 so I’ll have to keep nosing. Think they must be in the sale as they are £30.00 so I won’t hold my breath.
I will be trying to include a bit more fashion because after all it’s what we wear 99% of the time when we aren’t naked 🙈
Hope you enjoyed
Until next time
We are so lucky to have this lovely sunshine in the UK and we all love to visit the beach to make the most of it, and top up our tans.
I bring you this beautiful Peacock paradise designer swimsuit by Delores Cortes which i was kindly sent to feature on my social media platforms from ukswimwear
It is a top Spanish brand in swimwear and to give you my honest opinion i wouldn’t usually pick such a colourful costume. When i saw this one on the website i thought it stood out and would go really nice with my hair colour and my skin tone. I wasn’t wrong. I really like how it looks.
I wanted something i could feel comfortable in as i spend most of the time in a wheelchair and this one doesn’t disappoint. It’s so very well made. As you can see it’s low at the back, i myself have a few lumps and bumps here and there but it holds you in all in the right places.
Bear in mind it comes up small as it comes from Spain and is different sizing to the UK.
I am usually a size 12 but decided to go for a 14 just to be on the safe side and it fits a treat.
I definitely recommend having a nose on the ukswimwear website as there are swimming costumes to suit any budget. They do bikinis, kaftans and cover-ups too.
But please remember a swimsuit isn’t just for the summer it’s for all year round.
As I am writing this there are 2 days of May left,
It’s been a lovely one especially for the glorious weather we’ve had… I have actually got a little tan coming on.
Here’s what has also made me happy this month.
This has always been my number one perfume. I reckon I’ve been wearing it on and off for about 6 years. The bonus this month is that I went into Boots to get some toothpaste and happened to catch a glimpse of this in the perfume cabinet. Normally it retails for £37.00 and it was on sale for £29.99. Safe to say it went straight in my bag.
MY MAY PLAYLIST
These are my top 10 songs that I’ve been loving lately. When they come on the radio I can’t help but sing along. Normally on Spotify I am trying to find songs that take me down memory lane but I thought I would listen to more recent hits and I’m impressed.
DISTRESSED DENIM JACKET
I used to have a cropped denim coat a few years back but then I gained a little bit of weight and had to donate it. I went nosing on all the online shops I could think of to try and find a nice one and this beaut was on ASOS. It is now out of stock so I am so relieved that I got it when I did. Since I bought it if I need a jacket its the one I’ve been grabbing every time. Safe to say I love it.
THE KISSING BOOTH
The Kissing Booth was on my recommended films to watch on Netflix. I decided to watch the trailer and I thought it was quite funny so I watched it. I was quite blown away by how emotional I got. They really thought about the storyline. Its more of a coming of age into adulthood type film but at 32 I must say it had me interested from start to end. I won’t tell you what happened but it’s about a girl, her best guy friend and his hunky brother.
I am not one who really plays games but I needed something that was going to be a distraction when a panic attack struck. I stumbled across this game called Free Flow. As you can see above the aim of the game is that you have to connect the same colour dots without interrupting the flow of the rest. It’s one of those games you can easily get lost in and addicted to. I have it on my laptop, my kindle and my phone. It’s definitely one to try.
QUOTE OF THE MONTH
I always like to include a quote that gets you thinking and has meaning behind it and after seeing this one I thought this ones really good I’ll use it here. This one is telling you that no matter what gets your back up or gets you down, if you make the right choices everything will turn out just fine.
Thanks for stopping by to read my post
Til next time…
