I can't get enough of: Geometric earrings

I'm going to take you guys wayyyyyy back for a moment...

Hands up who followed me at the start of my blogging career when all I wore were statement necklaces? I hope to god some of you have stuck around...if you have; thank you kindly!

Nowadays I hardly wear a necklace and if I do; it's a thin gold chain or a long chain with some kind of geometric shape on the end of it. My *thing* over the last few years has been to wear huge chunky, mostly perspex rings and my ultimate faves; a statement earring.

When I say statement earring, I don't actually mean an all singing, all dancing chandelier set but more of a modern, eye catching pair. Without realising, my collection of geometric shaped earrings has grown and guess who is happy that geometric jewellery is 'in' at the moment?! Yep, I ammmmmm!

Take a look at my geometric earring edit and join the club! I guarantee they will be a conversation starter and you'll wear them for years to come.

The London Hilton Bankside - A review

Now, I have a confession's to make... I should have posted this post a longggg time ago but for some reason, I didn't get round to it. I'm going to rectify that now and crack on with this little review of the wonderful London Hilton Bankside.

Back in February during London Fashion Week, I was given the opportunity to stay at the London Bankside for a night and from the welcome at reception to the impeccably fluffy pillows; I can't really fault it. Situated in heart of London, the Hilton Bankside was perfectly placed for my week at Fashion Week. A short taxi ride from the centre and I was at the hotel and ready to throw myself onto my Hilton Serenity Bed *aka one of the comfiest beds I've ever slept on. Important to note how close this hotel also is to numerous underground stations such as Southwark and Blackfriars. If its sight seeing you're after, the hotel is super close to landmarks like The Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe.

The London Hilton Bankside is 'a new breed of design-driven Hotels' and I couldn't agree more. The hotel feels fresh, modern and well looked after. 

For my stay, I simply needed a fully functioning, clean room, a hearty breakfast, a powerful shower and somewhere to store all my fashion week outfits. I am happy to say; all my needs were met (bar the breakfast which you can read about at the end of the post)

My Room

I stayed in a King Deluxe Room and you know when you first walk in and see your room - you pray you're going to be happy don't you?! I seriously was and I was really impressed with the interior design of the room/ *entire hotel actually. The hotel is really nice and clean (one of the things that I find seriously important) and I was impressed with all the little extras scattered around the room and bathroom. There was also a bathrobe for me to wear... love a good bathrobe guys! A small, but very important thing which made me happy was that the bathroom had flannels in it. You'd be surprised at how many hotels don't have them and I hate having to pack one when I stay away.

The mini fridge was stocked with various drinks, there was plenty of tea and coffee to get stuck into and I stayed up into the early hours watching films on the in-room movie channel. 

I was a happy camper!

Please note, these photos were taken the following morning. I promise the bed looked perfect when I arrived!

Plenty of space to store my LFW pieces, plus an iron in the room because... let's be honest, I crease everything and you can't rock up to fashion week looking like a mess can you!

Onto my second confession...I was SO tired thanks to fashion week that I over slept and missed breakfast. I was gutted about this because a) hotel breakfasts are LIFE and b) it meant I didn't get to take any snaps for you! Hilton Bankside, if you're reading this...I could always come back for another stay and review the breakfast for you...wink wink, nudge nudge! 

I mentioned it at the start of the post, but one thing that really impressed me was the service. Nothing was too much trouble and you were always greeted with a smile - such a simple yet important thing!

A range at ASOS perfect for plus size women.

We all know that ASOS Curve is one of the leading plus size retailers. The clothes are on point, the variety is impressive and generally fit and quality is pretty damn good. I find shopping on ASOS scarily easy! Before I know it, theres 5 things in my basket and bamn I've just spent £100 on clothes. I'm guessing a number of you are sitting there nodding your heads in agreement?! 

I am pretty proud to say that I am one of the go to plus size bloggers when it goes to finding new brands/ranges that are plus size friendly. I have introduced a lot of people to Isolated Heros, Monki, COS and the focus for todays post; ASOS White.

ASOS White

is a range at ASOS which runs from size 4 - 18. The premium collection is made up of amazing silhouettes, edgy shapes and cuts and the most amazing fabrics. Prices start at approx £35 and go up to £150+. The reason I am explaining all this is because although the sizes only go up to an 18, I have found many of the pieces are plus size friendly.

I spotted ASOS white about two years ago and bought an oversize denim jacket but it wasn't until last year that I really payed it any attention. My wardrobe is now full of ASOS White pieces and I want to show you one of my most recent purchases in todays post.

ASOS White: The Fit

I am a UK 22 in dresses and I bought a size 16 in this dress (sadly out of stock). It is trial and error when trying this range and I suggest buying multiple sizes to see what fits you. I don't know how this range would suit a lady size 26+ but it is definitely worth experimenting! As with any range, try things on...you never know what might work for your shape! I find the jersey pieces and the over size shirts work best on plus size figures, the more tailored/fitted pieces/denim doesn't work as well but each piece is different so give things a try!

5 Slogan Tees You Need

Photograph by JKGPhotography 

What's that you say? You're not into slogan tees? Well I'm here to change your mind. Spring's hippest trend means we're letting our tee's do all the talking.

I have always loved a slogan tee, especially ones with retro prints or illustrations on them. Remember this one I wore to London Fashion Week shown below?

I love hunting for oversize T-shirts, stuffed at the back of vintage shops. I ferret in the mens section and there's always a gem hidden amongst the classic KISS or Guns and Roses tops.

I recently bought this cute Stay Zen slogan tee from Monki. Illustrated by talented designer, Camilla Engstrom; I love the message behind the whole collection. In her range, Camilla focuses on the importance of self love and to be honest, I think that's a pretty cool topic to promote! [I am wearing the XL in this style and I normally wear a UK size 20 in tops]

Check out my top 5 slogan tee's, let me know which one you like...I think there's one for everyone in this selection.

1. Monki

Starting off with another tee from the Camilla Engstrom X Monki collection. The 'Stay Zen' T-shirt appears to be out of stock in XL but this one is still available in the largest size. Snap it up before it goes! I love Camilla's self love illustrations and it's so nice to wear a tee with a girl on it that looks like me!

2. ASOS Mens

I recently bought this Outcast T-shirt and bought it in a 4XL. It's nice and baggy and perfect for wearing tucked into skirts or with some 90s ripped denim! I love a good band tee and always snap up the hip hop ones. 

3. Forever 21+

In a foul mood and don't fancy talking to anyone? Just wear this 'No Comment' top and everyone will know whatsup! I love this small slogan, perfect for someone who is a slogan virgin!

4. New Look Curves

Combining slogans with the layered mesh trend. Pick up this bargain T-shirt and kill two trends with one tee! Wear with Mom Jeans or over a 90's slip dress and boots.

5. ASOS Mens Plus Size 

If you haven't browsed the ASOS Mens Plus Size range then you bloody well should. Lots of cool items, including these retro print, branded tee's. Loving the springtime pastel shade and would look perfect worn with grey joggers and white trainers.

Just wear what you want mate

Ever worn something, someone's commented on your outfit (in a negative way) and then that outfit/garment seems less special and your mood is altered for the day?

Someone made a negative comment about this jacket when I wore it on my 31st and it knocked me for a whole 30 seconds and then I thought; screw you, I'll wear what I want! It's a stunning jacket, how I styled the outfit was KILLER and I looked damn good!

I've been wearing this kimono non stop and I hope you like how I styled it in this post. Wearing head to toe Elvi - The Hayley Hasselhoff Collection

When I choose the clothing I do, I choose it because I like it, it makes me feel good, it makes me feel confident and I personally love to stand out. Why does it matter if someone else thinks differently? They don't have to wear it! 

A very simple thought for the day guys...wear what you want and wear it with pride.
