AD – My Essential Party Companion: Be You Chafing Cream

As you all know the festive period has just been upon us and I'm pleased to share the product I've been relying on this party season. The team at Be You sent me their Anti-Chafing Cream in December so I could try it with my Christmas and New Year's outfits. And I couldn't recommend it enough! I always hate it when you find a great dress but it's too short to wear shorts underneath. This way, you cannot stop your thighs rubbing and end up going through a night of pain. However, this chafing cream is an absolut[...]

My Goals for 2020 2

My Goals for 2020

I am not one for new year's resolutions as I think they are pointless. I'm sure most people have heard about the study which says only 80% people actually achieve their new year's resolution! However, I always like to have goals to work towards. That's why I have written a list of things I would like to master in 2020: Find a workout I enjoy and do it more.I'll be honest I'm such a couch potato. There's nothing I prefer than getting home, chucking on my pyjamas and getting into bed to watch YouTube. It's an[...]

Did I Achieve my Goals for 2019?

At the end of 2018 (Gosh it feels weird to say that!), I wrote up a list of goals that I had for the new year. Now that twelve months have passed, I thought I would share my progress on these goals and what I will be continuing with in 2020... Get a tattoo - Achieved. For the longest time I wanted to get a very specific tattoo and I had put it off for ages because I was so nervous. However, my sister turned 18 in June and she decided that she also wanted a tattoo. It was getting to October and I realised I[...]

The History of Being Fat and How It's Affected Plus Size Fashion 4

The History of Being Fat and How It’s Affected Plus Size Fashion

Recently, I have become obsessed with those '100 years of...' videos on YouTube. It's just so fascinating seeing how fashion has changed over the last century. I always imagine what my life would have been like if I had to wear a corset like ladies in the 1900s or the boxy shapes of the 1920s. And well, the other day I saw a new video by Glamour called '100 Years of Plus Size Fashion' which immediately sparked my interest. It sounds stupid (and I hope I'm not the only one) but I suppose I forget that plus[...]


[GIFTED] Unique Vintage x emilydiscovers Plus Size Christmas Lookbook

Are you a fan of vintage styling? Well, so am I! I have always been obsessed with 1950s looks but I've find it quite difficult to find classic clothing in plus sizes. We think plus size clothing is limited these days but imagine how hard it is to find original 1950s dresses in a size 20! That's why I was so glad to hear from Unique Vintage - a California based company that has both a physical and online store. They asked if I would like to pick out a few dresses and I was so excited! I scrolled through the[...]
