H&M clothes & accessories haul

Hi lovelies,

I did a bit of shopping from H& M, so I thought I’d show you what I got along with my Get Ready with me video.

But first, what did I get?

Jewelry

I got this lovely chunky pearl earring. I think they look really nice paired with a nice spring knit or blouse. They can transform your outfit into something really glam.

Layered (-ing) necklaces

So, shell fish-y hangy stuff are all over the place. I got this necklace that is da embodiment of summer. It will look great with a V neck. You can wear it on it’s own or with other pieces.

I also got a necklace with a small circle hanging on it. I think that looks really chic.

Clothes

A wide leg pair of smart trousers. I have bought more classic looking trousers from H&M before and they are great value for money. Have washed my winter pair many times and they are still a great fit. This pair is more lightweight. The only thing I do not love about them is that they are quite high waisted.

Snake Print shirt

I ❀ animal print. Most of the things I have are leopard print. That is why I bought my first snake print shirt. Ideal for going out. What do you think?

Light (knit) blouses

At 8.99 I got three. A white, a pink and a black blouse. I made the mistake of buying the pink one in XLarge and it is quite big. I bought the others in Large. They are nice and soft, a bit baggy, the sleeves do not drown you and I 😍 them. Great basics for Spring 🌹🌷🌹

I also got this pretty hair tie which is very on trend at the moment. I really like this and it does make my hair look a bit more put together.

Now time for the Tube…

YouTube

My YouTube video is me showing you my work outfit. I wear the pink blouse, another H&M wide leg trouser, the necklace and makeup… On my face. And since I am talking about makeup, my look is a very easy everyday makeup look.

Thanks for stopping by. Don’t forget to follow my bog.

Till next time….

Curvy gal fashion

Hi lovelies!!

It has been a while since I sat and wrote a blog post.

To be honest, I am not actually sitting, I am tucked in bed, drinking coffee and thinking about clothes. Yeap.

That is why I am writing my blog post today. Let’s talk about fashion. Buying clothes.

My size

I am a UK 16, but that fluctuates, depending on the store and the clothing item. For trousers, I usually buy 16-18 (H&M or M&S), for tops I can wear 14-16. I usually buy clothes that are large or extra large.

YouTube

I have filmed a few videos about clothes and styling and I will share them here coz of course I am going to shame. Essly plug my channel.

So my glam Get Ready with me featuring zara leopard print and pearls

A Prinark haul try on

A Work Outfit Get ready with me (H&M/Zara)

Tomorrow I will be filming a spring get ready with me, so stay tuned.

I hope you check out my videos xx

Curvy gal Get Ready With Me β€β€

Hi Lovelies,

Being a 16+ can make it a bit hard to shop. Today, I am sharing with you a glam get ready with me for the curvy gal like me. I filmed a video where I show you the complete look. Clothes and makeup. Some bits and bobs are shared in this post, but loads of info is in the video.

 

My Clothes

You can get the trousers here. (affiliate link)

I love these trousers. They are wide leg and very easy to style. They have proper pockets. The material is like a soft pair of jeans with some sort of cloth in it. It does not crease. I loved it so much, I bought another colour (wine).

Blouse / shirt similar to mine can be found here.

I love leopard print blouses!!!

(Some of) My Makeup

Makeup revolution foundation: Love it. It is not drying if you put on moisturiser and primer. It gives a flawless base look.
Rimmel Wild Card blusher: My winter blusher. It needs blending. Do not go in heavy handed.
Rodial mascara: Too expensive. There are others that do the same job.

This is my Get Ready with me Video. I kinda like the final look 😍 (toot toot).

What do you think? If you are a curvy gal like me, what are your fave shops for buying clothes? Let me know in the comment below.

Vlogging time: York, Primark and my 1st white cane

🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻

Hi lovelies,

YouTube promo time. I filmed a vlog cause my life is sooooooooooo interesting. What do I show you?

Two hauls 😳😳

A grocery haul and a Primark haul.I love watching what people think about food and seeing what they consume. I get ideas about what I could buy.

My Primark haul was a good one actually (mind my saying!). I got Tees and a really cool makeup bag (I strongly suggest you pick one up if you have the opportunity).

I also bought pressies for my family.

I show you my new lap top/ table tray. I like that as well.

I am using my white cane for the first time. I think that if you are partially sighted like me, you really need to get one! Of course I walk around York which is a lovely place!!

Here is my vlog. Do check it out and subscribe if you wanna hear more from me…..

More vlogs are coming your way this time from Crete, Greece, so stay tuned.

Don’t forget to connect with me somewhere, somehow (check the sidebar for details.

Five Friday Faves

Hi lovelies,

It is Friday (it was when I started writing this) and it is time for my 5 Friday Faves Youtube Video (and a promotional blog post which aims to get you to watch my video and maybe even subscribe to my channel coz I am trying to grow and no one really subs 😩😩). So, enough with the rambling. What are my faves?

🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻

Body shop

My Moringa hand cream is so hydrating, lightweight and smells amazing. I 😍 it.

The card factory

I love polka dots. I love pink. I love organisation. I bought a box which is sterdy and very pretty.

Marks and Sparks

The scent of 🌹 🌹🌹 and it is my favourite. I bought the Rose 3 in 1 spray. You can use it on your body, for your room, and linen. I know that sound weird, but I like it and I πŸ’— the scent.

Primark

I bought a couple of fake flowers from Primark and my friend commented saying how nice they looked. I really like them. Great decor for shelves and stuff.

My Cane

This is a weird one, but I needed a warning cane. I now have one, and my life is much easier!Having a vision impairment is hard. Accepting that you need help is hard. Getting help is great though.

If you want to hear more about my faves, check out my channel. It would be great if you subscribed as well (#beggingforsubbies).

Anyhow, have a lovely weekend. See you in my next post and don’t forget to connect with me somehow, somewhere.
