Pink Clove Review & Competition

Monday, 30 May 2016

It's bank holiday woo!
And to celebrate the long weekend I've got a fabulous competition for you guys courtesy of Pink Clove*

Pink Clove specialise in quality plus size clothing influenced by the current trends from the catwalk. Designed to flatter the curvier girls amongst us, I was super excited to give their clothing a try so here are my two choices


Pink Clove Tea Dress
First up is the Felice floral wrap dress which I just fell in love with as soon as I saw it and I'm so pleased it lived up to the image. The floral pattern is gorgeous and really true to colour and the V neck makes this dress really flattering around the bust area. I felt like a fairy in this beautiful tea dress the skirt is so swishy. I'm wearing a size 18 and found the lightweight fabric very comfortable and true to size - I'm actually planning to wear this tonight when I go out for tea!

Next up is a more work friendly outfit, the paige flare trousers are literally the comfiest thing on the planet
Pink Clove Paige Flare Trousers
I genuinely can't emphasise how comfy they are, with their high rise and flared fit they're the perfect addition to any work wardrobe. I love that these jersey trousers with an elasticated waist can still look really professional when teamed with a blouse (Top from Primark in this case) and a smart pair of brogues*

Now over to the competition, You have the chance of winning your item of choice from the new arrivals range so head on over and have a look at what you'd like and then enter your details below: a Rafflecopter giveaway

What would you choose if you won?

The Week That Was


Photo of the week

Etihad Stadium Panaromic


Last Sunday I went to watch England play Turkey at the Etihad stadium in Manchester. It's the first time I've been to see England and my first visit to the Etihad; it was a thoroughly enjoyable day all round and I'd definitely make a return visit
 

Life Lately

  • I started my new job this week! I absolutely love it and feel so happy that everything seems to be finally working out. I feel I've now got a position I can really grow in
  • I've been carrying on with my driving lessons and everything is looking great, I'm really enjoying it and I feel really confident behind the wheel  
  • I'm absolutely loving my new Valley Mill Passion Fruit melts *, they last so much longer than other melts I've used and the smell is so realistic my whole room smells sweet like passion fruit

What I've watched this week

  • Game of Thrones - Oh my actual god. Just traumatising I can never hold a door ever again without a severe breakdown
  • BGT - I love final week and feel that Richard Jones was a very worthy winner and I'm sure the Royal family will love him
  • Hollyoaks - It's been getting very juicy lately! With deaths and marriages a plenty and I'm super happy that Warren's coming back

Blog Lately

  • I've been such a bad blogger lately! I'm still trying to get that right balance between full time regular work and blogging
  • Although I did reach a twitter milestone of 2700 so thankyou lovely tweeters for sticking by me 

Blogger Love

Due to being really short of time I haven't read many blog posts this week so only have one to showcase but it's definitely a good one for all you fitbit users:

Insta Love 

My favorite insta post of the week is this BUJO memories page, I love making my own memories pages and seeing how other peoples look, it's a great thing to really reflect on a month and find all the positive parts

8 Children's book quotes with life lessons for adults

Tuesday, 24 May 2016

I can't put into words what reading means to me, it's truly a savior some times and I love delving into books, but as I've got older the books have become a little darker and challenging and sometimes I think it's nice to remember a simpler time. I love reading children's books and if I'm working in schools you can generally find me in the book corner searching for a good story so here are my top 8 quotes that really have great life lessons


Harry Potter Darkness Quote
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Alice in wonderland impossible quote
Alice in Wonderland

Charlottes Web Friend Quote
Charlotte's Web

Cat in the hat don't matter quote
Cat in the hat

Peter pan adventure quote

Rainbow fish delighted quote

The twits sunbeams quote
