I was super excited when beauty blogger Lena agreed to be part of this project, because I really like her style. We first met through various blogging groups that we’re both involved in, and I started reading her blog Lena Talks Beauty. One of the main reasons I like Lena Talks Beauty is that she doesn’t just show you swatches of a product, she shows you what it looks like on, which gives you a better idea of what the texture is like, how it goes on and how it wears. All things I want to know before I buy a product!

A few of you have told me that you would love a beautiful new dress to wear on Christmas Day, so I’ve hunted out 10 plus size dresses for Christmas Day to help you feel like the fabulous queen that you are. What style do you like best?

I really love their summer 2015 collection, so I thought I’d share a few of my faves with you! Continue reading
Well hello there, Friday! How nice to see the end of another week – and the beginning of a long weekend! I know that I’ll be spending it as I spend every Labour Weekend – sorting out my garden (which is horrendously overgrown) and getting it ready for planting things for spring and summer. Very domestic, but worth it when your flowers start to bloom and your veges are ripe for the picking! What are your plans this weekend? Make sure you take some time to relax and unwind!
I believe in treating myself well, and part of that is choosing to have lovely things in my life. They don’t have to be expensive (although those that are, I think they are worth saving up for), they just have to be things that make me feel like a million bucks. Nice fabrics, beautiful designs, jewellery that holds sentiment and meaning, even lovely cups that remind me to sit down and appreciate how fortunate I am.
