Im Addicted to .............

Im addicted to eBay... My watch list constantly has a minimumof 5 items on it... From nail varnishes, clothing, bags, stationary and homewear, chances are I have bought it from eBay.

Don't get me wrong, I have sold my fair share of items too. Mainly clothing and shoes, but on the odd occasion I have sold ipods, iphones, concert tickets and sofas. I even sold my dads car on eBay a few years back.

I thought i'd share with you my most recent ebay purchases...

Fearne Cotton Brouges

I got these for the bargain price of £6.04 including postage.... They are literally stunning. I have been hankering over the patent black ones from Clarks, and after wearing these, I definately need them in my life! Just look at them!

ASOS Curve Dress

This beautiful dress cost me the costly total of £8.10. The material is silky and it fits like a dream. A full OOTD post will be coming shortly!

Panache Superbra - Evie Strapless

Guess how much I paid for this bra.... No honestly guess.......£10.19!!! I always struggle with strapless bras but whilst I was at the Panache Learn the Fit event, this bra was highly recommended...and it fits like a dream...It has one strap missing but if i want straps, I'd buy a bra with straps!!! Now all i need is some sun so i can wear strapless tops!!!

Have you had any bargains from eBay?

Ill be honest, unless I have something to do on a weekend I love nothing more than staying in bed until mid morning.

This morning however I had arranged to meet my mum in Leeds for a little shop!

As usual I had a hissy fit when trying to decide what to wear.

I finally opted for skinny jeans and a top.

What I wore -

Skinny Jeans - New Look Inspire
Bird Print Top - New Look Inspire via eBay
Cardi - George

This is my perfect kind of shopping and everyday outfit. Simple, yet effective!!

Fat Fabulous Four - Pastel

Due to the craziness of last weekend we decided to postpone this post until Saturday. I know, I know today is Monday, but I'm struggling a bit at the moment and wasn't sure if I was going to post this at all.

I've taken about 100 photos over the last few days of items I own that could be included in the theme of Pastel. I don't own many pastely coloured colours as them make me a bit washed out.

I finally settled on a pastel green top that I purchased from Simply Be months ago!

(Yes, even after taking a stoooopid amount of photos oon my camera, I settled with one taken in a supermarket toilet!!!!)

What I wore....

T-shirt - Simply Be
Black trousers - Evans (old)
Cardigan - Curvissa
Shoes - George at Asda

Here are Becky's, Mhairi's and Rosie's posts.

I apologise for the vagueness. Motivation, desire and willingness seems to have abandoned me. If you find it, I would be grateful if you would return it!

On Monday I travelled across to Manchester to revisit our amazing venue for Plus North an meet the lovely girls from Label Pr and Simply Be.

I wasn't sure what the weather was going to decide to do, so I went save and opted from my ASOS Curve skater dress, leggings and my battered old denim jacket.

I actually wished id worn tights instead of leggings. I think the dress is too long to wear with leggings!

I also think I need to to find my sunglasses.....look at the squinting going on!!!

I'll be honest, this isn't my favourite outfit. I think I would have looked better with no jacket, a massive belt, tights and either a blazer type jacket or a bright colourful cardigan.

What do you think?

Fatshionology - A day at the Races!

Fatshionologie is a blogger style challenge born out of a discussion on twitter in the hope that it would help us create exciting new content for our blogs as well as show that each new style 'theme' can be rocked by a variety of different body shapes!

This months theme was 'A Day at the Races' and was suggested by the lovely Becky.

As soon as Becky suggested this theme I know exactly what I wanted to wear!

I loved the dress as soon as I saw it but it actually hasn't had an outing yet!

The dress is a drop hem dress from Yours clothing and was from the last season collection.

What I wore -

Dress - Yours Clothing
Shoes - Debenhams
Jacket - Next

I really enjoyed this months challenge. And can't wait until august when I go to Ladies Day at Doncaster Races!!!

Don't forget to check to other ladies posts out!

Learn the Fit - Panache

Last Thursday I was lucky enought o be invited to Panache HQ for a Learn the Fit session.

Run by the lovely Karen from The Big Little Bra Shop in Market Harborough, she shared her vast knowledge of all things boobs and talked us through a whole range of things, such as different shapes of boobs and bras, correct fitting points and a whole bevvy of boob related info.

Most intresting for me was how a bra should fit correctly. Although Caroline from Curvy Wordy had told me how a bra should fit correctly, it made much more sense seeing an actully fitting.

During the session, as the ranges that Panache have to offer we modelled by the stunning Heather and Lucy, this included the new Scupltress range and Cleo Swim range, as well as classic Panache bra's such as the tango and superbra.

I fell in love with approximately 99% of all the bras and swimwear we were shown.

Whilst at HQ I wanted to have a look at the new Sculptresse range. Designed especially for the fuller figure, Sculptresse has a higher central gore and more centralised starps to avoid slipping.

I really love the Bellise and Pure Lace (shown below), can cant wait for the next season stock! Ideally, I would love the see the Sculptress range with the colours and style of the Cleo range. T-shirt bras, fully padded and in a host of beautiful colours!

At the moment though I am on the hunt for the Neve and Porcelain bra!

Panache very kindly offered all attendees a set from the range as a thank you for attending, which I will be reviewing over the next few days (if I dare get my boobs our on here!)

I really enjoyed learning about Panache and how to correctly fit a bra, however, I do know have the urge to try and fit all the women I know!!!!

Have you tried Panache? Whats is your favourite bra?

OOTD - Easter Monday

Sometimes an outfit is just so easy to wear and put together I could wear it everyday.

This is one of them. A dress with leggings and a cardigan is my perfect outfit.

When the new season range came out from Simply Be I was lucky enough to get my hands on a few items and this was one of them.

It also comes in a number of different colours. One of which been a mint green which would look lush when the sun eventually decides to play!

Another mirror pic, I am just been lazy.... I do actually have a decent camera and a tripod which I should use!

Apart from the material been loose under the bust, it fits perfect.

I am really loving the range of dresses that Simply Be have on offer at the moment, and I can't wait to start shopping for my holidays to buy them all!!!
