To complete this rock chick look I really really need this aptly named eyeshadow palette from the fantastic Charlotte Tilbury range. I have just brought a number of her products and I love the quality of them.

Memories cherished as memories are made.

I have just returned from a wonderful week in beautiful Wales.

I have loved every minute of it, from the beautiful sunsets to the endless beaches.

Its been a truly wonderful week.

It was a week I so needed, time to recharge and refresh my mind.

Time to allow the words to form and the passages to write.

I am feeling stronger that ever.

My heart and mind are on the same path.

This holiday was the first time I have gone back to this area of Wales without Livvy.

I honestly believed that it was going to have to be another first without her.

Yet it wasn’t because as I have enjoyed the views, cherished the sunsets and loved the ocean I have felt Livvy everywhere.

Memories cherished as memories made.

#PSBloggerlove – Say hello to Em

One of the most rewarding things I have from attending plus size fashion events is the amazing women I get to meet.

Crazy energetic feisty gorgeous  women.

One of these women is the incredibly beautiful Em who blogs over at Terrible Tumbles .

I’m not sure what I loved first about Em when I met her, she has this awkward unique vibe which I adore and relate to.

It may also have been our discussion about footwear for our rather large feet. I honestly don’t know but after also following on instagram and chatting on twitter and reading her blog I just blooming love the woman.

Terrible tumbles is a blog is full of fashion which can range through all styles.

Em doesn’t seem to have one style she embraces them all in her own unique way. All helped by the fact she is naturally stunning which I’m sure is something she isn’t actually aware off.

Anyone who follows Em will realise quickly she an extremely bright woman with a humour that makes me actually laugh out loud.

Some of her photos and poses just make you giggle and the faces she pulls well you need to see for yourself.

She is a blogger that doesn’t take herself too seriously.

She loves fashion and loves people and this just oozes from her posts.

Honestly I just think she simply rocks.

Still don’t take my word for it. Pop over to Terrible tumbles and see for yourself and please say hi to Em and let her know I’ve sent you as part of   #PSBloggerLove

 

 

Weekly wish list

Its that time again when I let you know my fashion wants and what has caught my eye in the plus size fashion world.

First off I’m still on the search for another swimsuit. Swimming a few times per week means I need another suit to add to my collection.

This gorgeous retro swimsuit from Simply Be is perfect and ideal match between fashion and strength. I need something with extra strength in the chest area, I will say no more ha ha.

My 2nd and 3rd choices are from New Look.  I’m in desperate need of some casual every day clothes. I seem to be ruining some of  my tops getting them covered with snot and all those wonderful bodily juices that my foster son loves to share with me.

I combined these Inspire Ripped Skinny Jeans with a Grey Peace and love T-shirt.  I love this set funky and casual all rolled into one.

Transformation

I have been changing so much over the last couple of years.

Finding out who I am and who I wish to be.

Finding my style, what I like, what I want to wear and so much more.

It’s been a journey full of ups and downs.

So to celebrate this journey and how far I have come and how finally I am starting to like what I see in the mirror I booked myself a photo shoot with the amazing Chiara Aprea Photography.

I had seen a few of the photos from my friends shoots and was really excited for my own.

The whole shoot was amazing Chiara is a wonderful person so friendly and makes you feel at home as soon as you enter her studio.

After a coffee and a chat it was all go.

Besides being an incredible photographer Chiara is also a truly talented make up artist and hairdresser and before long I was transformed.

I chose a very exciting style but Chiara made my idea come to life.

the makeover

Then it was time for the photography to begin.

I was so nervous but after the first few photos and Chiara constant reassurance I completely relaxed and enjoyed being in front of the camera.

Honestly I could rave on and on about how fantastic Chiara is but I think I’m just going to let the photos speak for me.

Honestly I love them all.

If you are considering having a photo shoot I would seriously consider working with Chiara Aprea she has some great offers right now on her facebook page also she has been kind enough to offer my readers a 10% discount if they use the code Sara10

Personally I am still on a high after my shoot, it was fantastic to let my gothic vamp out. I still look at the photos and wonder if that’s really me. I know I’ve said it before but I seriously LOVE THEM.

 

Pink Clove Review

Sometimes you love and outfit on a model but when you are there standing it you realise its not for you and just doesn’t suit your shape and size.

I find this leaves me disappointed and in this case super sad.

When asked if I wanted to review a few items from Pink Clove I jumped at the chance I had been lusting over a lace skater dress they had but in my haste and pure excitement I ordered this equally as stunning Lace midi dress.

The fabric on this dress is beautiful, but for me who carries a lot of weight around the stomach I just didn’t feel as if I could pull it off. Also my height meant that this was a little short too.

The second outfit I chose was these awesome Fleur Cigarette leg trousers  with the Imogen Mesh Insert top

I liked this outfit but again i will have prefer a little more length in the trousers.

My last choice was this blue mesh insert jersey top.. The colour is beautiful, though again my body betrayed me the front of the top ended up fitting a little low and it was a little tight.

All in all I will say Pink Clove offer some well priced fashionable clothes but please check the sizes closely as I found them to be a little different to my normal.

 

* I was gifted this items for the purpose of this review but all opinions are my own.

We need special dresses for a truly special event.

Now if you read this blog you will  know I am one proud mom, my children are my world.

My girls have faced so much loss in their short lives and yet still have held on to their compassionate hearts which isn’t easy when faced with so much hurt I can promise you that.

Besides being fantastic sisters to Livvy they now have happily opened their hearts and homes to the children we foster.

So when I found out that my youngest was a finalist in The Eleventh Annual Mayor’s Civic Awards I could have cried, ok I did cry.

The Mayor’s Civic Awards are now in their eleventh year honouring local people who make outstanding contributions to the borough and my girlie is one of those they are honouring.

We are all so excited for this special evening but are a little worried about what to wear. We don’t really attend many formal events so this is both exciting and nerve wracking for us all.

Especially for my daughter and I as dress shopping is a little overwhelming for us denim loving ladies.

Still we have been searching the internet for our special dresses for this special event.

Here are our choices.

Brodie and I both fell in love with dresses from Chi Chi Clothing 

Brodie loved this elegant lace skater dress

 

Chi Chi Florence Dress

 

Whilst I fell head over heels with this cap sleeve baroque style maxi dress the detail is simply beautiful.

Chic Chic Avril Dress

These dresses are truly beautiful and would turn a special night into a truly amazing night.

Brodie also fell in love with this stunning dress from New Look 

I love this one and think the colour would really compliment Brodie’s beautiful big blue eyes.

I love this Little Mistress Wrap Front Maxi dress from Asos. It’s so special, I am so nervous about this event so making sure I feel good is so important.

Brodie and I are both excited and nervous about this event. It is so special that Brodie has been named as a finalist, I am so proud of her.

 

It will also be a wonderful opportunity for us to tell people about Livvy’s Smile.

Me and my girl
