Pink Pops

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

These photos were taken a few weeks ago in partnership with Voy Media, when Mimmi and I went to a few pressdays and had a lovely day in the city. I’m wearing many of my current favourite items in this outfit, for example I’m sure you are sick of seeing these boots already, haha. I chose the colourful Junarose bomber to wear in an event that I was hosting, but after that I’ve been wearing it a lot. It makes any plainly coloured outfit absolutely pop. And this skirt then.. I LOVE IT. It is a size 18 from ASOS main range, and it will absolutely fit someone up to size 26-28, possibly even bigger (based on the fact that I also own this skirt in another colour and it is size 12 and it fits me fine – you’ll see that here soon as well). Isn’t it great when ASOS has a sizing glitch like this? ;) The material is lovely and sturdy scuba, has big pockets, and in my opinion it is definitely worth its £35 price tag.

How about the pink pops then? My hair, the bomber, my lipstick, my nail polish and my top are all pink or have pink details.. I really like it, and this is one of my favourite outfits in a while :)


Model for a Day with Scarlett & Jo

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

A few months ago I was lucky to be asked to model Scarlett & Jo ‘s latest collections together with 3 other bloggers and 2 models. allie, Danie, Georgina and me all chose one dress from the Spring Romance collection and one from the Summer Romance collection to model in the shoot. We got a lovely breakfast, and then had our hair and makeup done. We could choose the styling of our hair and makeup ourselves, and I went for a quite minimal makeup look, and a little quiff and side braid with my hair. I really loved my hair, especially as I wanted to have a hairstyle that I can’t do myself while my shoulder is injured, haha ;). We could also style the looks ourselves, and I went for nude heels and Daisy & Eve jewellery for both looks. I wish I had taken my denim vest with me, as that’s what I would have worn with the Summer Romance look.. but I have all summer to style it like that, and you will see it in here or my social medias for sure. I want to thank Scarlett & Jo for this opportunity, I had a lot of fun, and it is always great to get to hang out with my fellow blogger babes :). Please see below for more photos and links.


Loved being photographed together with Danie :). The Floral Prom Dress that I’m wearing is unfortunately sold out already, but there’s still some random sizes left of Danie’s

The shoot even got featured on Vogue Italia website earlier this week – SO AMAZING! Would have never thought that I would see myself in anything Vogue, and I feel so proud! See the article here.


Maximum Lengths

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

(Suomeksi alla)

I wore this gorgeous maxi dress from Yours Clothing when Mimmi and I went to the pub on her last evening in London. I LOVE my maxis to be long, and this dress certainly delivers. I wore it with my old, thrifted ankle boots that have a small heel, and the dress was still floor length: perfect :). I really think this dress will be one of my go to items this coming summer.

Because of dual sizing I took the 26-28 (I would normally be 24-26), and I think it was a good decision to get the extra length to it. If you prefer your maxis shorter than this, I would go for your normal size or one down :).

This post is also the first one where you can see my new hair really properly. I really like it, it has brought certain freshness and playfulness to my *boring* life ;). I also didn’t even realise that my hair had gotten so long.. hence the double meaning in the title of this post, haha.

ps. Don’t forget to take advantage of the lovely discount code that I have for Yours – £10 off £20 with code ‘BLOGGER12′ (no sale items unfortunately, and new email addresses only)

Online shopping goes to Westfield

Tags: , , , ,

Us plus-size girls need to do a lot of online shopping to find cute clothes, but what if you can combine this with actual shopping? Well, at Westfield London (Shepherd’s Bush) you can. You can order clothes from online retailers like ASOS and Very, and get them delivered to Westfield’s Collect+ lounge. First you can go shopping in the physical shops like Evans and New Look, and then go to the Collect+ lounge and try on the stuff that you ordered in their spacious changing rooms. If you want to keep them, you’re done, and if you want to return, you can do it with the help of the staff at the lounge. You can find all the info on how to order there in this link.

Last week myself and a few other bloggers got a chance to go and test the service ourselves. Before we went to the lounge we got lovely hand massages at Jo Malone, and the day started well with some nice pampering :).

I had ordered two dresses and a skirt from ASOS, and was excited to try them on. It was nice to have the other girls there for instant feedback as well. I loved my choices, and you will definitely see them here at the blog later (styled better than above may I add, haha). I loved using the Collect+ lounge, as it makes the whole trying on and possible returning process so much easier when it can be combined with a regular shopping trip. Really great idea indeed!
