Makeup & Outfit of the Day – Last Weekend!

Bon weekend!

If you’re anywhere but the UK, I hope you’ve had a peaceful week. If you’re in the UK, we’ve had a bit of a week of it, haven’t we? I’m not going to go into politics here because, let’s be honest, I am tired. If you wanna see how I feel about any of that stuff then you can probably tell from my Insta posts or my twitter.

I am running late on my posts guys, and today I have no inventive titles for you even, because these photos are from Sunday. Yes, I know. I still thought they were worth sharing, though.

Something I’m really trying to get over is my confidence issues when my hair is not down. I have a bit of a thing about how I perceive my face to look when my hair is up (not due to my fatness, but more due to the fact that I hate my nose and profile of my chin). But seeing as every summer seems to be hotter than ever, it’s something I need to get over. My partner Ana told me I looked nice in pigtails, so pigtails it is! haha.

This day was typical British weather. We had a beautiful sunny and hot day to start off with, then got rained out. Luckily I took a rain jacket, but the sandals probably weren’t the best idea!

ASOS had a massive sale over the May bank holiday which I took advantage of, and this tee was one of my favourite items I got. I’ve just checked for you babes and it’s still available and still on sale – go go go!

The sandals are ones I got aaaages ago and are no longer available, however I have managed to find a strikingly similar pair here on sale!

My makeup held up awesomely on this day despite the heat and the rain, probably mostly thanks to a combo of my Paul & Joe primer I’ve just finished (T____T) and my usual KVD Lock-it Foundation (in which I wear 42 Light).

Lip of choice for this day was the delightful Cupid by Lime Crime. I’m betting this one will be a go-to shade for me.

And that is all my dudes!

Have a wonderful rest of the weekend ❤

ASOS Wishlist May 2017

So my daughter has chickenpox. This is an enlightening experience because I have never actually had chickenpox myself. And no, I don’t have it just now, either. Maybe I’ll catch it from her and it will present itself in a week or two, but right now the only thing I am suffering with is a super infected finger – ouch!

Because of this, I haven’t left the house in a few days, nor making myself presentable because I’ve spent most of my time looking after her (and going on a SIMS4 binge!), so unfortunately, I haven’t had any new looks to present you with. So, for today, I thought I’d do a wishlist, which I don’t think I’ve done since my birthday last year!

When it comes to finding clothes, being plus size can be difficult. It’s not always a case of popping into town and grabbing something. It can be an arduous task to trawl round finding a) things that fit you, b) things you can afford, and c) things you actually like. This isn’t a problem for most people, but when you’re fat, this is the holy grail. And this is a reason I like Asos so much.

Like I said in a previous post, I can’t afford to buy many clothes, but the ones I do get tend to be from online stores like Asos. And the ones I can’t afford go into the handy wishlist, where I sit staring and lusting after the pretties until I can afford them, or they no longer become available and disappear from the site.

So in this vein, here are some of my fave pieces on Asos Curve at the minute:

 

  1. Asos Curve Mini Rara Skirt – £28
  2. Asos Curve Maxi Skirt in Palm Print – £32
  3. Asos Curve Midi Skirt with Asymmetric Poppers – £20
  4. Asos Curve Halterneck Sundress in Gingham – £30
  5. Asos Curve Asymmetric Cami Top in Mixed Floral – £28
  6. Asos Curve Smock Top in Tiers in Gingham – £30
  7. Asos Curve Maxi Tea Dress with Open Back in Floral – £45
  8. Asos Curve Embroidered Long Sleeve Shift Dress – £70
  9. Asos Curve Salon Embroidered Smock Longer Length Midi Dress – £120
  10. Asos Curve Embroidered Enchanted Midi Shift Dress – £60
  11. Asos Curve Kimono in Stripe with Embroidered Back – £60
  12. Lovedrobe Check Culotte Jumpsuit – £55
  13. Asos Curve T-Shirt with Lace Plunge and Sleeve – £25
  14. Asos Curve Mesh Scatter Sequin Mini Dress – £75
  15. Asos Curve Stripe Swing Dress with Ruffle Hem and Tie Front – £35
  16. New Look Plus Distressed Boyfriend Jeans – £24.99
  17. New Look Plus Strappy Lace Bralet – £12.99
  18. Asos Curve the Ultimate Cami with Caging 2 Pack – £14

 

I’m especially in love with anything mustard yellow at the moment, and I’m trying to pull myself out of my comfort zone with patterns and styles… going against the grain in my attempt to reject the ideal of what is “flattering” to fat bodies, and in fact, get that word out of vocab altogether.

So what are you guys lusting after this summer?

Until next time 😉
