Styling Up A Storm This Easter – Me a Plus Size Girlie

Written by InnocentCharmer. Posted in 2014, fashion

Although struggling massively with my weight and how I feel about the way I look I am still not getting into the right frame of mind to sort it. I think a great deal is due to being so tired, I had started to stay home more for fear of going out and feeling so unattractive but that just makes the situation worse.

Then a couple of weeks ago I found a new hashtag on twitter and Instagram – #psbloggers - which for those who don’t know stands for “plus size bloggers” – I have been researching and there are so many awesome bloggers out there showing a huge love for all plus sized, it made me rethink, I am by no means happy with the way I look but I have always believed no matter your size you can look beautiful, so this weekend I did just that, I made sure I looked good, I stupidly got no great shots of my outfits as we were just so busy, so I am sharing quick phone shots of what I wore this weekend.

My hair is currently driving me insane, I can not decide on a colour, I am loving my new Pink Chanel lipstick though, goes lovely with my blue eyes.

I went casual most of the weekend as it was days playing with the kiddies whilst visiting family, Saturday saw me wear an old Peter Pan Collar top with Black Skinnies. Sunday I wore my new top from Next, which is covered in tiny sequins and a Joe Browns Cardi from SimplyBe.

Then Monday as my Mom has dogs I put on an old Neon Vest from Matalan with Jeans and a H&M Cardi and one of my own creation Necklaces.

I felt comfy but also pretty, I am loving 2 lipsticks in particular at the moment my new Chanel Bright Pink and a NO7 freebie from Xmas which has a coral pink tone, I think my Summer shall involve a great deal of pinks and blues.

If you have seen any nice Plus Size fashion in these colours do let me know, I have little to no Summer clothes as of yet.

A Busy But Fun Week

Written by InnocentCharmer. Posted in 2014

Finally all 3 children are over their colds and chicken pox, so we made sure before Grayson heads back to school this week we would make some memories, all be it simple ones.

Daddy and Addison headed out for quick park visits to blow the cobwebs away, whilst Grayson got over the last day of nasties.

We packed our lunch and headed to the local parks, impromptu picnics are always the most fun, Addison has enjoyed riding the zip line with Daddy and then on her own (whilst I held my breath).

Grayson and Deacon enjoyed the swings, Grayson giggling for well over an hour – this is what it was all about.

Deacon even managed a nap on the swings with his little cousin Ivy.

Addison and I have headed for a Costa and shopping date with Granny, whilst the boys napped.

We have met our 2nd & 3rd cousins at a local hotspot, we played in the park, ate picnic food, giggled, walked miles holding hands with our cousin, played football, rolled in the daisies, Deacon felt grass on our toes for the first time and for Grayson walk miles and miles.

Then we have headed out with Pops and Granny, had yummy Mexican lunch, rode the merry go round (again and again) worn matching outfits and got spoilt very rotten with many a new outfit and sweeties.

Grayson even managed a 1st, walking around a shop all on his own, he was very proud but cheeky.

All in all we have all had fun, no we did nothing exciting, yes very ordinary, but for us this is perfection, seeing smiles and giggles on 3 little faces. The weather has been hit and miss but at least no rain, but very kindly thanks to Name It Kids we have been warm and very cute looking in our gorgeous new coats.

Grayson and Deacon in matching Robot jackets, Addison in a beautiful pink & blue butterfly, floral fitted jacket. They are fantastic jackets for the Summer months, fully lined, detachable hoods and reflective safety strips.

name it kids review

We absolutely love them, they fit so well and I love that the hoods can be removed, they have done a fine job this week keeping the kids warm whilst enjoying so many fun adventures.

We have linked up with the very awesome Katie of Mummy, Daddy, Me sharing our Ordinary but Magical Moments.


Disclosure – We were sent the coats FOC. Our opinions are all our own.

Kara’s Wish List #12

Written by InnocentCharmer. Posted in 2014

Kara's Wishlist

The Hubby and I are desperate for some date nights or days, whatever we maybe able to squeeze baby sitters for, I realised last week on a few hours out without children I have no bags that suit this occasion, don’t get me wrong I have a large bag collection which is currently gathering dust (nappy bags are always in hand) but they are all more everyday Mary Poppins sized bags.

So I have started the search for reasonable priced oversized clutches & handbags, I came across this gorgeous one at River Island this week.

River Island Clutch

I love Yellow and Grey colour combos, to me they work in Summer or Winter, I love that this clutch has the choice of a handle too.

So have you seen any clutches on your travels ? I would really like a soft leather tan coloured one.

This Week You….
