If you follow me on Twitter (@GeorginaGrogan_), you may have seen that I was invited to a photoshoot last week. I haven’t done any shoots in over a year, as I haven’t had the best experiences (which you can read about here) and I’ve simply not been well enough. As it was a beauty shoot, we needed to take our own clothes and the brief was either bold, non-patterned clothes, or hues of blacks and greys. Once upon a time my wardrobe was bulging of black, plain clothes, but now, it’s full of mostly statement pieces. Bold patterns, bright colours, different textures, I LOVE my wardrobe, and as stressful as it was to find something plain to wear, it was quite a nice feeling knowing…

I didn’t realise that people actually wanted to know more about my chronic pain, not until I ran an anonymous survey about my blog and its content, (if you’d like to leave me some feedback, you can do so by clicking HERE). Some weeks I’m not so vocal about my pain, other weeks I like to complain a lot. I even created a private Twitter so I can moan away without annoying people. I thought it might be useful to share my chronic pain journey with all the clinics I’ve been too, help I’ve got from the NHS, medications that have been recommended to me, and anything else that could potentially help others. Everyone’s pain is different, but you can always make suggestions to your…

Needlite, a Darnish-start up, launched late in 2015. They target the countries where there is a real lack of sunshine, so naturally the UK is on that list. You’ve probably all heard of day lamps now and how important they are, and how damaging SAD can be to your overall health, which is why investing in day lamp is one of the best investments you can do for yourself. I’m so utterly impressed with Needlite, it has helped boost my mood, my productivity, and I even use the lights to do my makeup during the duller and darker days. Needlite does a number of things, its unique design sheds the light onto you, the user, and onto your workspace. It means that there isn’t just…

When I invited my friend Ryan over to make a couple cocktails to celebrate National Daiquiri Day (on the 19th July), we both didn’t expect it to turn into a family gathering but everyone wanted to join in! 31Dover sent us an amazing set, including this Funkin Strawberry Daiquiri Cocktail Mixer which was in this awesome cocktail shaker. We used this throughout the night as we don’t have a proper measuring glass, and this is essential when you don’t want to poison your family. We also received the  Smatt’s Silver Rum, Ryan and I started with this for our Daiquiris and we absolutely loved it, it’s such a lovely rum. It isn’t too heavy but it still packs a punch. We didn’t realise it was a £42 bottle, so…

Finally it’s time for a post on all the beautiful plus size swimwear I wore on holiday! Due to having a rather rubbish start to the year, I didn’t end up getting much swimwear. To be honest I didn’t think I’d be up for the effort of taking nice photos in different swimwear, but I didn’t realise how easy it’d be with the beautiful place we were staying at. Although some of the swimwear in this post looks amazing on, it wasn’t the most comfortable or practical and I’ll explain why… Elomi I did have my eye on a completely different set from Elomi, but it had sold out already so instead they sent me an Essential Bikini Top, the Indie Mid Rise Brief, and…
