Mega Babes May Week 3

Hi Guys 

I hope your all ok.

So these last couple of weeks have been a bit of a world wind, so that is why I haven't been posting as much as I should be, I will go into more detail about that another time. The post I really want to keep up with is my Mega Babes because it is so important to me. 

This week I wanted to show off a women who sadly I have never met, but would love the chance too. She is someone who has boosting my body confidence in so many more ways then I could ever hope for. She is an excellent blogger and her tattoos and fashion sense are to die for!!!! 

This week I am going to be talking about the gorgeous Kate London-James from How Kate Does Fashion.




I first found Kate on Instagram and instantly I loved her style. Her make up is always flawless, which I am so jealous of lol, I LOVE her tattoos, and her clothing is just amazing. 

I started to follow her and each day she posted I saw how not only was she so pretty and stylish she is also so down to earth. She is very modest and always thanks people for comments they have left. 


                     (See what I mean about flawless makeup lol)

As well as all the things I have mentioned Kate has this amazing fashion sense, she gives me so much inspiration with fashion. I am a person who is never really sure what goes with what or which colouring I mix and match and Kate has given me so many ideas about what I can do for myself. 





The main reason Kate is one of my Mega Babes is because she has given me so much confidence towards my body it is unbelievable! 

It has been quite a few weeks now but I remember what happened the day I saw the most beautiful picture of this women. I had been at work, but I had been so down because I had had my first experience of trolling, not me personally but I had noticed how many horrible narrow minded people there are out there. I was flicking through instagram and then I came across this .... 


I remember just stopping and looking, and thinking how amazingly brave she must be, because I could never do anything like this. After a while I thought why couldn't I do this? I have a body just like any other person, and just because I am fat is that any reason for me to cover up? Should I walk around covering every inch of my body because of my size?? Hell no!!!

I am FAT!!! So what!!! If you don't like my body don't look at it, that is what Kate has taught me, to love my FAT body just the way it is, and you know what, for the first time in my 27 years of life I can say I do love my body. 

I am fat and if I do not want to change then I won't!!! 

Thank you Kate you are honestly a sensational women who is a role model to so many people (which you already know since I've told you a million times lol). Thank you for helping me to love me.

Anyone reading this check out Kate's blog (linked above just by first picture) because she is just so lovely. 

See you soon

Mega Babes May Week 2

Hi Guys

Hope your all ok.

So this is week 2 of my Mega Babes May and this week I wanted to tell you all about an amazing women, who is not only a brilliant blogger but someone who is so friendly and such a lovely person. This week it is Natty Nikki (click here for her blog link).




I first came across Nikki on YouTube, I have always been a very big YouTube watcher but my problem was that all the women I was watching were thinner then me so when they were shopping and doing hauls I could never shop the same places. 

When I found Nikki the first thing I thought was omg this women is so nice and funny, and as I watched more she was showing these amazing clothes. 

Nikki has this art of being able to find all the amazing clothes, whether it is venturing to the tiny rail under the esculators in H and M or riffeling through the sale in New Look she always finds the best things. Btw I honestly do not have the patients that she has to do that, I look for 2 minutes and then give up haha!  

I started following Nikki on Instagram and here is where I really got to see her amazing fashion sence. 



I have also had the great pleasure of meeting Nikki, she arranged a blog shopping meet up, and I can say with all honesty she is one of the friendliest people I have ever met, she is lovely. 

The other thing that makes her totally brilliant is the fact that we have this in common ..... 



Hehe!!!!

Ok so back to a non star wars place, and honestly Nikki is brilliant, she is an amazing blogger, her videos are down to earth and very honest. She is genuinely an all round lovely lady, she has helped me to realise that it is not about having to be a specific size to have amazing style, you can dress exactly the way you like no matter what your size, Nikki has helped me be more confident in what I wear and I want to thank you for it.

Thank you Nikki your the best!!!

Anyone reading this go and check out Nikkis blog and YouTube and you'll see how amazing she is.

See you soon

Mega Babes May Week 1

Hi Guys 

Hope your all ok. 

 So another month is over already and so much has happened this year for me, I have majorly been working on my blog, I got a new job, I am making plans to move in with my boyfriend and I have become so much more confident about my body. 

 The last thing I mentioned is such a huge deal for me. This time last year I hated how I looked, I had tried numerous amounts of diets, from calorie counting, weight watchers, slim fast, the list could go on and on forever. I wasn't happy looking in the mirror because none of my friends looked like me. They were all thin and gorgeous and always looked amazing no matter what, and me, well I was the opposite. I didn't know what clothes to wear for my size, or how to do my make up or anything. 

 Then I found the amazing community of Plus Size women. 

 I have had the pleasure of talking to and meeting some of the most amazing women, who have helped me to realise that it doesn't matter what anyone else looks like. This is my body and I should love it for what it is. I should feel comfortable with who I am, no matter what anyone else says, does or looks like, I shouldn't feel bound by any rules to feel like I cant wear something because of my size, I am me and I am FABULOUS. 

 So for the month of May I wanted to let some of these lovely girlies know exactly what they have done for me and how they have helped me. Every Sunday this month I will be showing all you lovely people one women who has helped me to love myself more. I am calling it Mega Babes May. 

 This week is my first and I wanted to show a women who has not only helped me but who I feel has taken me under her wing, gave me a huge cuddle and sent me back out into the world with more confidence then anyone ever has. That is non other then the drop dead gorgeous Kat Henry from The World Through Kat's Eyes  





I first heard of Kat on Instagram, she always looked amazing and I was always looking at her pics to try and get makeup ideas and try and get style tips when she uploaded her lovely full length outfit posts. I started commenting on her pics and she would talk to me back. The first time it happened I didn't know what to say, I think I actually only replied with a smiley face haha!! 

Little by little we started talking more and tagging each other in ''what I'm doing now'' posts, and just talking generally. I remember thinking how amazing she was and how I wished I had her confidence and spirit.

 One day a meet up for bloggers was posted and we both spoke about going, I said I would meet her off the train and that was it. I met her and from the second I saw her I new she was gonna twice as amazing in person as she was behind a computer or phone screen. 

 When everyone had left, it was just me and Kat and we went for drink at Costa, I will never forget her saying to me how happy she was that she had seen me growing more and more confident. Kat what I should have said then was it is partly down to you, showing me how amazing I can be in my own skin and not having to change for anyone.




Ye so both of us love a good selfie, whats wrong with that HAHA!!!!!

Not only is Kat amazing at blogging she is also one of the most photogenic people I have ever met.



She is also Miss Surrey Curve 2015, this is another amazing part of who she is. She gets to show off how brilliant, funny and confident she is to all people around her. She is such an inspiration to me and so many other people and I just wanted her to know how much she means to me and how much she has helped me to change. 

Kat thank you, oh and by the way, yes I will still continue to photo bomb you at every opportunity. 

Love you hunny :D 



I encourage anyone reading this to check out Kat's page because she is AMAZING!!!!!!!

See you soon

#OMCZ

Hi Guys 

Hope your all ok.

Firstly I would like to apologies for this being such a late post, I haven't been very well the last couple of day so that is why I am just uploading this today. 

Steph from Seeing Spots has introduced me to her amazing #OMCZ posts, this is Outside My Comfort Zone. I have read a couple of these posts and when I met up with Steph at the PSBloggers meet up in Birmingham I ask if I could join in. 

This months post is inspired by the shopping trip which Nikki from Natty Nikki organised in Birmingham. The theme is, Shopping Trip



So what do I wear when I go shopping ....



When I go shopping I love to be comfortable, I love to wear something that will be easy to take off and put on while I am trying on clothes so I will ALWAYS tend to go with leggings over jeans as they are just so comfy. 

Since it has been a little cold these last few weeks I also wear my big coat, just in case this lovely english weather wants to change at the last minute, its the same reason I wear my boots too. For some reason any handbag I have is huge, I carry so much in it from my diary to my blog notebook, pens, extra make up, so I have my lovely black gold studded bag, which you cant really see hehe.

Coat - Primark size 20 
Top - Matalan size 18
Leggings - Matalan size 20 
Boots - Clarks (Winter 2014) 
Bag - Yours 

I do love doing these blogs and I cant wait till next months :D
