Outfit of the Day - Bootsaling

Hey Everyone!

So to accompany my haul I thought I would do a cheeky outfit of the day post to show you my bootsaling attire. I was thinking about this the other day and my blog used to be full of outfit posts but lately it's been more beauty or just silence (sorryyyyyy).  So I've decided that I want to pull it back round to plus size fashion which is what I love the most and I think is the most useful for my readers who are predominantly plus size too. 

So that said let's get on to the CLOTHES!

I'm wearing a peachy pink dress from New Look which has an elasticated waist and pretty beaded bow detailing. 

I've paired the dress with a cute ivory cardigan (unbranded market one) which has little ruffles down the front with a golden trim. 

Half of the way through my bootsale adventure the heavens opened and it was hoods up and fast trot back to the car, my New Look parka coat did me proud. I love this coat as it's lightweight enough for the end of summer/ beginning of autumn, has lot's of pockets and can be drawn in at the waist to add a bit of shape but I like to wear it bigger and grungy. I'm also wearing my favourite chelsea boots which are hands down the best £9 I ever spent!

This is me with my sister's fancy new bag which I thought was so nice it deserved a picture mention.

I hope you enjoyed this post and thanks for reading. Love Sally X



Hey Guys!

So I've been bootsaling again locally in Hertfordshire and found some great bargains to share with you. I hope you like!

Elegant Touch Matte Nails in Mint Green- £1

I love the colour of these and might keep them for spring 2014 when pastels are all in.

Elegant Touch Matte Nails in Cobalt Blue- £1

I really like the matte finish of the nails and the colour is very bright and statement.

Elegant Touch Metallic Nails in Molten Silver- £1

These are a bit futuristic for everyday use, will probably save these for a halloween themed lookbook possibly.

Elegant Touch Colour Drench Nails in Hot Blue- £1

I love the two tone on this set which I think will look great mirrored with a navy and black eyeshadow look.

Elegant Touch Metallic Nails in Tip Tease- £1

Again, these are a bit out there for me so will save for a themed lookbook.

Smashbox Heatwave Lipgloss Set- £7

I really like the Smashbox lipglosses in general as I have always found them to be of a high quality and these ones are only newly released as part of the summer collection! I've seen some impressive swatches and can't wait to review these myself.

Mac Pro Longwear Lipcreme in Goes and Goes -£1.50

I really like the vampishness of this lipstick and it was a total snip at £1.50! Review/swatches to follow.

Elf Studio Blusher in Pink Passion- £1.50

I've wanted to try out the studio line for a while now and can't wait to try this blusher out. The colour looks very bright though so hopefully won't been too dramatic on the skin.

Mark Hill Hairspray- £0.50, Bumble and Bumble BB Prep- £4 and Givenchy Very Irresistable- £8

This perfume smells absolutely amazing, very floral and flirty and summery so a definitive standout item from the haul. I'm also really happy with the hair products, Bumble and Bumble is so expensive at full price so I'm excited to try the spray out at only a fraction of the price.

Overall I'm really chuffed with the things I got and for such little money. Have any of you been bootsaling? What are your best buys?

To follow will be my bootsale outfit of the day post, so check that out too.

                                                       Thanks for reading! Love Sally X

Asos Curve Picks

Hi Everyone!

So like most plus size fashion bloggers I have a complete addiction to ASOS Curve. For me it is a genuinely pleasurable experience when I religiously check the website every morning to see what's new. Lately I have been seeing some seriously impressive stuff so thought it would be fun to hop over to Polyvore and make some outfit collages to share with you all.

Let me know what you think!

             Hey Everyone!

So I've really wanted to do a blog giveaway for a while now after seeing loads on other blogs which I thought looked really fun as it's a chance to give something back to regular readers and new readers alike. I recently won a giveaway over on Jade's blog which I was really chuffed about so figured I would give one of my readers a chance to win something too.

Today I'm going to be giving away a lovely necklace from Topshop (RRP £30.00).

The necklace is a beautiful ethnic design and a real statement piece for any outfit. To win this necklace just check out the below ways to enter! (UK ONLY)

All modes of entry will be checked, I will remove all entries that are not valid
I will make contact with the winner within 48hr of giveaway closing
Winner will then have 7 days to claim their prize or I will redraw

Good luck!
