Breton and Bling.

I did it. I FINALLY plucked up the courage to go on a little adventure with my SLR camera and take some outfit shots OUTSIDE. A miracle. You'll be totally shocked to know my camera was a Christmas present and since the 25th, I have used it three times. THREE TIMES! Yes, fellow bloggers will shudder at this. Last week I figured it was about time I took some decent outfit photos, ones that didn't involve the backdrop of the showroom at work! I'd been shopping so thought I'd show off my new purchases 'properly'.

Camo Jacket: Ebay
T-shirt: Topshop
Jeans: Simply Be
Bag: Marks and Spencer
Band rings: ASOS

How beautiful is this midi initial ring? I've been looking for one for ages and found this in Topshop for £4. I also bought (yet another) gorgeous statement necklace from Topshop. I'm loving the neon gems on the perspex.

Pumps: Kurt Geiger

I was also invited along to the So Fabulous blogger event last week but unfortunately I was spending my evening with Beyonce and I couldn't let her down, could I? The event looked like it was a huge success and I'm really impressed with the range which is available through Very and Littlewoods. I often find it difficult as a plus size girl to branch out of my comfort zone when shopping online. Lets face it, shopping on the high street can be difficult which is why I tend to fill my baskets online. The So fabulous range has some really gorgeous stuff and I've purchased a few bits from them before including some pleather leggings and lace peg trousers. I'm eyeing up this beautiful Ombre Sequin Dress next that you can see the lovely Callie modelling here.

On another note - it's FIVE DAYS until my holiday. I'm off on a little road trip with three of my friends  driving from San Francisco to LA and then Las Vegas. I've been to Vegas twice before but never to San Fran or LA so if any of you have any recommendations, do share!

A big congrats to Emily Rousell who was the winner of my ASOS competition too!

  2. Getting a single-lens reflex camera is perfect for a blog because you should have a pretty good idea of what you are getting before you go through the trouble of downloading the pictures. You wouldn’t be able to wear it everywhere you go, but I love the camouflage jacket. I love the ring to.
