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 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!
