My Blogging Journey So Far and Being Nominated for Three Awards!

After a couple days of excruciating back pain courtesy of a car accident last year, today, I just wanted to take the pressure off and write about anything I wanted and have a little fun with it. This month I have had the incredible news that I have been nominated for the Plus Size Awards again, but unlike last year where I was nominated for 'Best Fashion Blog' and fortunately won it, this year I've been nominated for a mind blowing 3 awards! So, what better subject to write about than my blogging journey so far?

With all the excitement of Rome this month, I actually forgot it was my blogging anniversary and that I've now been writing for just over two years. The thought makes me incredibly happy, especially to say that when I first starting writing my blog, I was working in Lush and pretty much hated everything about my life. So, why did I start blogging?

I decided to take a gap year before starting University as I honestly could not cope with the pressure of College and it actually made me a very depressed person, well, that amongst other things. I had just come out of a relationship, two weeks later my Nan passed away, then College was finally over and I decided that everyone I was surrounding myself with, were nothing put poisonous, selfish people. I was at an all time low, convinced that my life was cursed (seriously) and I didn't think there was a way out. I basically cleaned out my life, like you would a computer and it took a couple months after this clean out for me to reboot myself properly. At first I thought working two 5 hour shifts a week and having no friends was amazing as I had more time to do absolutely nothing, and when you're in College with a job, you appreciate doing nothing.

Scarlett & Jo Aqua Blue Jersey Fishtail Dress

I'm so shocked and grateful for all the amazing feedback from my event with Scarlett & Jo last weekend, it was an amazing day but the comments from people who came, fellow bloggers, Evans' staff and owner of Scarlett & Jo, Gifi, have been utterly out of this World. Hopefully I will be able to come to more stores in the UK as the Face of Scarlett & Jo for more shopping events, I have my eyes on the London store, but I wonder, where would you like to shop with me? 
Getting on with the new dresses, I decided to go for the most daring first, the  Aqua Blue Jersey Fishtail DressDaring as it's a little different to the rest of Scarlett & Jo's latest collection, as it's a brightly, oriental printed, body con dress. Normally not something I would go for as I've been called several times (sometimes not always in a positive way) a 'skater dress' girl, but everyone does have that one style they're most comfortable in and for me, it's a fit and flare. I'll always try new things though, especially for my favourite clothing company, totally not biassed....

Ignore the necklace, at least until July when it's going to be on sale, but in case you can't wait for a full review it's from Lauryn Rose and I absolutely adore it. Almost as much as I love my Pandora ring and that's a big deal. Anyway, this dress, as you can clearly see is quite incredible. It's such a vibrant colour and the print is utterly stunning, even Alfie loves it for the print. As it's a size 20, it does cling to my tummy a little but I quite like the way it looks as I like my tummy. I definitely would not recommend sizing up thought as it's a pretty spot on fit and very stretchy, comfortable material.
