The only words needed is – MIRACLES CAN HAPPEN!


Do please check out the incredible photos in the #livingarrows project from I Heart Snapping.

One of the geniuses behind Living Arrows is the very cool and awesome Hayley of Shutterflies, who I have the pleasure to call a real life friend. The pictures she takes always make me smile, they are just so beautiful and I was very lucky to have her take some beauts of Deacon on his 1st Birthday – I am so going to get her to photo my superhero above one day.

#Fashionfridayplussized – Week 1!!!!!

Written by InnocentCharmer. Posted in #fashionfridayplussized, 2014, fashion


WHOOP WHOOP IT IS HERE! The first ever #fashionfridayplussized – I can not tell you how excited I am for this, how much I am hoping to bring a super community of bloggers together, to inspire each other as they have me these past months, to find new clothes that I need to have, to comment and share impressive outfits and beautiful women.

If you are wondering what I am harping on about, or how to take part, head here 1st.


So we are over that bit lets head onto the fun bit, the outfit. If you haven’t heard on social media, the very awesome Simply Be have donated a prize for me to giveaway to celebrate the launch of #fashionfridayplussized – I was over the moon as honestly in the past few months nearly all my outfits hold a Simply Be item. Simply Be is fab, you can shop from the comfort of your home (or store now, I shall visit one soon), you can order as much as you like as they have free returns and for the past 6 months they have seriously become BANG ON TREND with the clothes they are offering, I would not like to say how much I have bought these past months, I think I have most of the Look Mag for Simply Be collection.

My outfit choice for this week is a little different to maybe what you are used to seeing me in, but this is Mr Innocent Charmer’s favourite outfit I have worn in the past month, he says it represents me so well.

With the weather being one day storms, the next major heat wave it has been hard to find a balance. But this outfit works quite well for that and can be layered even more come the winter months, with coats and jackets.

This is perfect outfit for days out with the kids, in particular the day I wore it we went for a blistery walk along the coast and played in a park, Addison loved it as it has pink in it and I love making a statement.


Outfit Details

* Necklace – Anna Lou of London

* Oversized Pink Happy Tee – Simply Be

* White Vest – H & M

* Boyfriend Jeans – Simply Be

*Trainers – Converse

The tee I was not actually going to keep, but I loved the colour and the message so much, I had seen it worn on Instagram in a few ways, but still couldn’t work out how to wear it for me, then a friend of mine was dressed up in an eighties style outfit and it hit me, let’s try tying it, I think it is super cute, although next time I might go for a hip tie. These jeans have been my everyday wear for the past 2 months, they are very comfy but I warn you definitely go down a size, I actually bought them a size above which I wore for a week and then they got too big, so I bought my true size, they too have got big a month after having, so I think I shall end up buying in the size down as I love that I can roll them up or wear them long, they look pretty fab with heels too.

Now I just need my hair to grow, so I can feel a little more feminine.

So now for the fun bit, you all linking up, all you have to do is fill in the inlinkz widget below, I can’t wait to see all your outfits, I have some money coming my way so am looking to buy myself some treats next week. The outfit post or picture has to be from the next 6 days.

All entries will automatically be entered into a random prize draw, the very awesome people of Simply Be have put up the prize of an item of the winners choice from Simply Be up to value of £50! I am super jealous, my current wishlist is very long. Here are my top 3 picks at the moment.

Me and Mine {July 2014}

Written by InnocentCharmer. Posted in 2014

I am desperate for that illusive picture, a picture I can hang on the wall of my special little family, hence why I always try to take part in Lucy’s linky Me and Mine.

I thought this maybe the month, but how wrong I was, but the pictures do make me giggle, there were 15 shots taken by family on a day out to a National Trust gardens, Addison was not happy to have pictures she wanted to smell the flowers, Grayson wanted to walk and Deacon wanted to create mischief (as always) and I think all of that is apparent, the boys at least sit(or stand) near us, but Addison looks a little like the black sheep.

But all in all they have produced memories I will not forget every time I look at them, they are certainly showing my bubbas personalities.

me and mine

Grayson “Mummy let me down”

me and mine

Addison “Mama I want to smell the Roses”

Family favourite

The best of the bunch – I actually really like Deacon and Addison’s faces.


If you have any tips on how to get a better picture, please let me know.
