So I have a new obsession. I used to hate these but have found a new appreciation for one of the strangest drinks there is, the Bloody Mary! I don’t know what it is lately but I can’t get enough of them. I can happily even drink them even without the vodka. I’ve recently gone on a search for the best pre-made mix and I’ve found a winner. I love this so much that I brought a bottle with me to the UK while I’m here working for a couple of months. The winner, hands down, is Zing Zang Bloody Mary Mix Unfortunately Zing Zang can only be purchased in North America but I have a solution for all of you other folk, keep reading! I like to think that I’m being healthy as well because Bloody Marys have lots of good things in them as well (not necessarily the american style ones topped with burgers and such). According to Spoon University, tomatoes contain the antioxidant lycopene, which is supposed to lower the risk of disease and it’s also great for adding a bit of protection to your skin. It helps aid in digestion and it’s a great hangover cure thanks to […]

Body glitter, fringes and flower crowns can only mean one thing, it’s festival season! I absolutely love some of the looks people come up with during this time of year so I headed to the shops (and online shops) to come up with my own.

I had long accepted my role as “the single girl” over the last few years (and when I say few… I mean a lot!) In fact, I quite liked it to be honest. I was really good at distracting myself with my career and putting other things first so it was rare that I felt lonely, even with all of the travelling I do! In a very unexpected turn of events, someone came into my life and completely shook it up, but in a good way. For the first time, in a long time, I was pursued by someone. Ladies, you know how it is, sometimes it feels like we are doing all the chasing when in actuality we just want someone to chase us. Well that happened for me! Now, months and months down the line, I’m engaged! The forever single girl is single no more. I’m absolutely loving every minute of this process as well. So get ready for lots of wedding posts! I’m having a crazy short engagement and between releasing an album, doing festivals in the UK and a tour this Autumn, I’m also planning a December 2017 wedding!?! I’m not sure I thought things through […]

I have never understood why so many active wear clothing companies ignore the plus size community, so I’m thrilled to see Nike pioneering the movement. You can check out the full collection here, but first here are a few of my favorite pieces… Nike are not just great for active wear, they have some great leisurewear too – as modelled here by my fellow blogger friend, Danielle Vanier. I absolutely love that Nike has not only used gorgeous plus size models but influential bloggers as well! Sometimes its best to keep your style simple. I love how you can go straight from the gym to the high street in this head to toe Nike look. Dani is bringing it again! I don’t know about you, but I would definitely like to rock this look during my Zumba class! The new collection is more than black leggings and tops. There are great sports bras to support the girls and lots of colors to choose from when it comes to putting together your workout look. So hit the gym in style, ladies! Rock those curves while keeping it healthy!

As much as I love the department stores and high street shops, I have always been on the lookout for fantastic independent designers who specialize in clothes for a curvy body types. Years ago, thanks to Etsy, I found several but one stood out among the rest. The clothes were bold and looked like something you’d see on a runway. The only difference was, the women looked like me! They weren’t hiding themselves away in dark colors but rather declaring who they were in bold colors, prints and designs. I instantly fell in love with JIBRI! I had never seen designs like this before for plus size women. Take a look at a few of some of my favorites from their amazing catalog of clothes. Jumpsuits and Denim will be all over the place this S/S17. JIBRI has this BOAT NECK MID SLEEVED DENIM JUMPSUIT that will work perfect for warmer temps.
