FK Flattering - a monochrome outfit

I think the best outfits have something old and something new, and this look has a t-shirt that's a few years old with my new Elvi skirt.

My thrifty DIY beauty advent calendar

Hi loves!
Last year my dad was working at M&S so he got a hefty discount, so he got me the M&S beauty advent calendar. This year he's not and I'm too skint to buy one of my own after our move so I had a brainwave - all the little bits and bobs I've got lying around from beauty boxes, all the things I've bought recently and never swatched/opened, let alone used, they've all gone in.

Things I've learned about driving in my own lane

I've avoided wordy posts for several weeks as I'm still painfully aware of my propensity to do great harm with the words I choose in haste. After that post of almost two months ago I've done a lot of soul searching and I've made some changes. The honest truth is anyone can bang out careless words in 5 minutes, but well considered ones take time, and I'm not great at that. Mea culpa. Some of these changes have been internal - examining why I lash out when frustrated instead of dealing with my emotions for instance, and I've also made changes to the way I interact with other bloggers. I wasn't happy when I wrote that post - quite clearly - and the way I consume all things blog-related needed to change.

If you follow me on social media you would've seen me wearing my Viva Voluptuous Lara baby doll a couple of times already. Now I have the kimono to match I've taken a set of photos to show them off. If a fat woman's backside offends you, leave now. 😛

If the barn door's a rockin' don't come a knockin'

I was at lovely Sharnfold Farm again a few weeks ago to show my mum and step dad the lovely animals there, and I spied this lovely old barn door which I thought would be a great backdrop for photos.

Christmas gifts from Jacamo for the men in your life (SP)

In case you haven't heard of Jacamo, they're a sister company (or should that be a brother company?) to Simply Be and they do a whole range of clothes for the large man, as well as shoes, accessories, gifts, electricals and more. They stock clothes up to 5X, which is a 64/66 inch chest to cater to the cuddliest of fellas, and you can expect major name brands like Joe Browns, Puma, Adidas, Lonsdale, Timberland, Wrangler and more. With Christmas being just around the corner, here are some gifts I'd like to pick up for the men in my life. And that checked shirt? It's totally for me, but it's our secret, OK? Although it may be a men's clothes shop, I wear lots of clothes meant for men. Clothes are just clothes, so wear what you want. With the weather being on the chilly side in the UK at the moment, the snuggly Men's Hoodies are well worth a look.

Wide calf boots for plus size legs from Wide Calf Boots Store

Wide calf boots from Wide Calf Boots Store for plus size legs //

I have very wide calves and haven't been able to wear knee high boots for many years. When I found out the Wide Calf Boot Store have boots to fit my legs I was thrilled. I chose this style as they look a bit like biker boots, a style I love.

Plus size checked shirt - lumberjack chic

Plus size checked shirt - lumberjack chic //

A few weeks ago on Instagram someone I follow put up a photo of them wearing mustard and a red checked shirt and it inspired me so much I bought a red checked shirt so I could recreate it. I've loved checked shirts since the early 90s, when I fell in love with Pearl Jam and the whole grunge scene and I basically wanted to be Eddie Vedder. 😉 (How cool is it that Blogger now has emoticons in the post editor?)
