Monif C Sao Paulo Leopard Print Bikini

Bikini:Monif C, Kimono:New Look
Another bikini post for you guys. It's the one I purchased last year, and at over €100 I was darned sure I'd be wearing it again this year. I love the leopard print, and the halter neck, as it gives me a little more security and support, than any of my other swimwear. As much as I love my Rue107 one, this one is more supportive. While splashing around amongst the waves in the Black sea, my Rue107 bikini top fell down! Luckily no one saw and my dignity was kept in tact! This bikini  although more supportive, but unfortunately not as comfortable. Having said that, it's this bikini is not uncomfortable, I just feel less restricted in the other one. I now really want to get the Black one from Monif C, for my next holiday (whenever that will be!)

Although looking at them both after I prefer the look of this one, as I look more hoisted up, and pulled in! As I spent the day at the beach, and was battling heat rash, and sunburn, I wore my gorgeous Kimono from New Look down to the beach, and kept it on to cover the sunburn on my back! What do you guys think of the high wasited bikini? I love it, as it hides my lumps and bumps and I feel extra confident on the beach!

Holiday outfit #4

I'm back to reality now, and only coming round to sorting out everything! I'm a million and one great products to show you guys over the next two weeks, so I can't wait to get started on that. I've a few more outfits from my holiday's to show you, this probably being my favorite. The dress is loose and flowy, perfect for the hot weather! The cape effect is gorgeous, and so feminine! I picked a gorgeous coral colour, and I wore the floral crown to compliment the dress. When it's hot out, I like wearing minimal accessories, as when it's really sticky outside and the last thing, I feel like doing it chucking on a load of bracelets or even my trademark statement necklace! I got this dress on sale from Asos Curve, and I think it set me back €30! Cheap as chips! The colour is so nice and vibrant, and sets off my tan. To finish off the outside I wore gold sandals, and a beige Fran&Jane bag, to set tie the outfit together.
Dress:Asos Curve, Floral Crown:River Island

Feminine

Hey Lovelies! 
Last week I had a few girls over for a girls night of fun and frolics, and this is what I wore. I wanted to go girly, wear sky high heels, and cinch in my waist with a belt. I love how one day I'm wearing runners and printed leggings, and the next a pretty dress- that's the beauty about fashion! I've actually had this dress for about three years, and actually got it on sale for about €25! I love bargains, and couldn't resist ;)It's so colourful, and although a little short, I thought it fitted the occasion perfectly. 
I love Awear. I've been wearing it for donkey's years, (over 10 years!) The quality is always fantastic, and like I said I've had it about 3 years, so I can really vouch for the quality. I bring this baby out ever Spring/Summer, and have even worn it with a leather jacket in the Winter. It's an extremely versatile dress, and I love the little frilly sleeves as it cover a little bit of your arms, but still being relatively sleeveless. I use to wear these dresses all the time. I rarely wear belts any more, and I don't know why. I love how the cinch in my waist and give me an hour glass figure, I feel so feminine and girly in this dress, and I can do one hell of a twirl in it - a sign of a great dress, no?

Glam Glow "Super Mud Clearing Treatment"

Unless you've been living under a rock for ages, you'll know what GLAMGLOW is. Originally used by Hollywood movie stars, it's made it's way to us mere mortals. As with any beauty product with hype surrounding it, I was intrigued, especially since I heard the gorgeous Michael Buble was a fan. I always love discovering new face masks, as I wear them about once or twice a week to give me skin a bit of a treat. It comes in slick expensive looking white package, that makes you want to open it! As it's a "detoxifying face mask" I was even more eager to try it out! I love anything with the word "detox" in it, and can be easily sucked in! I've used this a number of times already, and it's safe to say I'm hooked.
Now first things first, I'm not one for spending money on skincare, funnily enough I'll splash out a couple of €'s on a nice designer handbag, but I always think that expensive skincare is a rip off, and that you can get good quality dupes at a much lower price. At around the €50 mark it's expensive, and I was apprehensive about it.  Is it worth the €50 price tag, for only a 34g jar and for someone who loves to trowl it on to my face, I couldn't see it being good value for money. Forever the Sceptic, perhaps?  It claims to give "mind blowing results" in helping to fight blemishes, visible spores, black and white heads, razor burns and ingrown hairs. With hormonal breakouts being a lovely side affect to being a girl, I was happy to test it out when my skin was in dire need of some help!
There's no doubt that thought went into the packaging, and upon opening you see nice touches! I know it sounds mad, but it's the small touches that really impress me! For someone who NEVER reads any sort of instructions I loved the colour leaflet, which were full of pictures and kept my attention - a rarity! The leaflet is informative and made me even more eager to give it a go! It's been raved about all over the world, and I haven't read a bad review yet, and I've trawled through a lot of them! If all the celebs in the states are raving over it, it must be good! Now as I said with it being about 50 quid, this product would want to be good for me to splash out on another tub.
The mask itself is a dark grey colour, which is a little bit intimidating! Who wants to put grey muck on their face? There's simple and clear instruction on the jar itself if you loose the instructions, so you never forget the correct way to apply it, another common problem for me! "Apply a thick layer of Super Mud all over your face or directly onto the spot. Leave it on up to 20 minutes - the longer the better the results. Wash off with a warm face cloth" Now this pot claims to have 17 applications for a whole face or over a thousand for a single spot treatment. I like that you can use it for both, as sometimes when I've a sore pesky spot that I need to get rid of asap I don't want to be going through the trouble of doing a whole face mask!
Glam Glow "Super Mud Clearing Treatment"*
I applied it one night, when my skin was dry and looked dull and felt horrible. I had a nice relaxing bath, and left it on for 20 minutes. It's not a relaxing mask, as it tightens immediately, but I like it, as you can feel it working. It turns into a light grey once dry, and my skin tingled once it was on.  My skin looked brighter, felt smoother and I didn't look half dead any more! I washed it off, and was shocked by the difference.It's an amazing product, and I really would recommend it to everyone! I will definitely be repurchasing it, and it will 100% become a staple in my skincare routine!

Have you guys tried Glam Glow?

Panache Bra Review

Hey Lovelies, 
I've been meaning to do this review for yonks, but with being away in London, and working mad hours, I didn't get the chance to test it out! I've worn it a couple of times, in the last two weeks to really give it a test run, as from speaking from experience with other brands, after a few wears the wires start poking you in the side, which I hate! When I was first asked to try out Panache, I was hesitant. Not for any particular reason, but because I love how my Bravissimo bra's fit and feel. If it aint' broke don't fix it right? Well...I had heard such positive things from other plus size bloggers on Panache bra's, so I decided to give them a go...
Panache "Pure Lace Hot Pink" Bra set*

Panache's "Scupltesse" collection for D+  is for those of us who are blessed with bigger boobs. Having big boobs myself (38FF), comfort AND nd style are paramount for me. I don't want any hideously ugly bra's, but I need good support. As I've mentioned I've heard great things these bra's, so I eagerly shopped the collection, and choose the "Pure Lace Hot Pink" set, as it's feminine and girly. My lingerie collection is growing at a very colourful rate, so I decided to keep the momentum! When it arrived, the colour was so vibrant. More vibrant than the catalogue and I was delighted. The lace is always quite subtle and it doesn't show through most tops, which is always a bonus. It's definitely a bra you can wear on a daily basis. Comfort wise, it's very comfortable and I wasn't running home to whip it off at the end of the day! The cups are also soft, and true to size. The back fits snug, giving the right support, without being uncomfortable. It's a great addition to my lingerie collection, and I'm delighted I tried Panache!

Asos Curve Summer Sale Picks


Hey Lovelies,
With Sale season in full swing, I thought I'd do a bit of online "window" shopping and show you guys what I'm loving at the moment. First off is of course Asos. I've been a fan of Asos ever since I can remember, when it was known as "As Seen on Screen" and I'm delighted to say it's my favourite online shop. There's so many things to choose from, and I love how the cater for a wide variety of sizes!

Asos Curve Sale pieces
I've said it before and I'll say it again, Asos Curve are the best retailer for Plus size girls. They're constantly updating their collections, bringing us bold and gorgeous clothing time and time again. It's not hard to see why, when girls email me asking where to get stylish affordable clothes, Asos Curve is the first place I tell them about. Now don't get me wrong, the other plus size retailers are improving and giving Asos Curve a run for their money, but for now Asos Curve is still very much in the lead. As I'm sure you're all aware that the Asos sale is in full swing, and I decided to pick out my favourites! Now I did cheat a little but the digital print dress isn't in the sale, but it's the most perfect Summer ever :) The prices are fantastic, so you won't feel guilty if you pick up one (or 5) pieces! Asos always have such fantastic sales. My only advice is snap up your size quick as everything seems to be selling out extremely fast! 

What are your favourite picks from the Asos Curve Sale
