'They Shouldn't Wear That'

Hi Guys  Hope your all ok.  This blog post is very close to my heart, last week the Singer / Presenter Jamelia made some very silly comments regarding her views on what type of clothing should be available in main stream shops. She said that high street stores should not make clothing for anyone above a size 20 or below a size 6 and that for those of us who fall into the above or below ranges should be made to go to specialist shops and feel bad about it.  In response to this, the brilliant blogger Debz (click here for the link to her blog) came up with an amazing idea, #WeAreTheThey . Jamelia was constantly calling the above 20s and below size 6 people ''They'' and Debz wanted to prove that the ''They'' have a face, so at 8pm last Wednesday it went live on twitter with all of us putting pictures up to prove us ''They'' lot have a face and we will not sit in silence while we are being told where we can and can not shop. The respons

Review on Schwarzkopf Hair Colour

Hi Guys Hope your all ok. So as some of you know I love to colour my hair. I am madly in love with red hair but sometimes the upkeep can be a bit too much. My hair is naturally brown but can go a little auburn in the summer, which I love, I wish I had been born auburn its such a gorgeous colour. I have used other hair colours before but I wanted something that would be relatively easy to upkeep and that if I was unable to you wouldn't notice my roots majorly. I decided to go for the Schwarzkopf Colour Mask, in 586 Warm Mahogany.  I have been looking at this colour for so long, it is so nice and I love that it has the red in the brown but it is darker then straight red. Being a colour mask I thought this would be a much easier colour to apply to my hair, it was so easy to put together, you get your normal tube of colour, and then the tub of the mask, you put them together in the tub and shake well. As normal you get your conditioner too which I always love since it ma

Evans Skinny Jeans Review

Hi Guys Hope your ok  So recently me and some of the other bloggers I know went on a lovely shopping trip and while I was with them I picked up a pair of jeans from Evans . I have never really been a big jeans person, I am 5ft tall and a size 20 and so I could never find a pair that fitted me perfectly. So when the other girls pointed them out I was slightly skeptical, especially since they were a pair of skinny jeans, but I took them and tried them on anyway.   Since we all had a pair of jeans we decided to try them first. I went into the changing rooms and that is when the magic happened! I got them past my knees, ok I thought that's good, then I got them past my thighs, this is great I thought, then the dreaded moment, I pulled them up past my bum, and ..... THEY DID UP!!!  Not only were they the right length and the right size, they are stretchy they pulled my bum up and in and they still allowed me to walk normally. They aren't stiff they don't ride up anywher

Why does it effect me so much?

Hi guys I hope your all ok. This is going to be a bit of a quick post but I wanted to write it down quickly. Lately on instagram I have been more and more shocked about what I call "fatbashing". Although it has never happened to me personally, as a fat person, (yes I admit it) I feel like I am being hated for my size just because of how I look. There are accounts set up with no real names just pictures of larger people with stupid sayings on. Firstly I don't understand how people have the nerve to do this? Someone pointed out to me that its more then likely the same person making these pages and posting, so where do these people find the time? Do they not have a life? Secondly they have been using #'s like effyourbeautystandards this really miffs me off, this was created to help people, to empower them and if you actually read up on it Tess Holliday created it for all people who do not fit the mold of what some people define as beautiful. No matter what
