Currently Coveting #1 - BooHoo Plus Size & Curve.

Being a 'plus-sized' girl and trying to find clothes that are fashionable whilst being friendly to my bank account is a very hard thing to do. A lot of the shops that stock my size (24, if anyone's bothered) tend to charge around twice the price of what a shop stocking 8-16 would and it really pisses me off....like, I want to be fashionable too, mate! ANYWAY, little rant over - I realised the other day that I haven't posted a wishlist in a really long time and there's so many clothes that I am currently wanting in my wardrobe that I think it's about time I brought back my 'Currently Coveting' posts because there's loads to put on them. So here's #1....


I've been having a bit of a love affair with BooHoo lately. I never used to order from them, but they have so many offers on that it's hard to say no. So as I've compiled quite a wishlist over on their website, this 'Currently Coveting' is going to be just a fraction of the stuff that I have on their faves.

Plus Katie Sun + Moon Swing Dress. BooHoo have had a jumper like this on their site for a while now and I've been wanting to buy it for ages but I've just put it off and put it off hoping that it would go on sale, but then I saw this dress version and knew I had to have it. I am way more a dress person than a jumper person, so this will most def be in my wardrobe soon! £16. Available in 3 colours. Sizes 16-22.

Plus Amanda Strappy Paisley Print Playsuit. I adore a good paisley print and I own one playsuit, so when I saw this I knew I needed it. It is so cute! Probably not the most ideal item for the weather we've been having lately, but it's definitely something that I would wear...like, a lot. Fat girls want to look cute too. £14. Sizes 16-24.

Plus Sara Badge Detail Oversized Sweat. I have been slowing falling into the whole badge/patch trend and I fucking love it. When I scrolled onto this jumped I fell in love straight away....but it seems everyone else did too because it's almost sold out in this colour. So I'm praying that BooHoo get some more stock in soon because I need this in my life. £20. Available in 3 colours. Sizes 16-20.

Plus Megan Floral Print Cold Shoulder Frill Hem Dress. This is something I know I wouldn't wear a lot because it looks a little too formal for my taste. But I think it is super pretty and dainty looking. If it was to go on sale, I think I would buy it just for those special occasions that call for something like this because it's too beautiful to pass up (y'know, if it goes down in price!) £25. Sizes 18 or 22.

What are you currently coveting?

FIVE GOOD THINGS #1.

I've seen these kinds of posts around for a long time, some of my favourite bloggers post them, and I absolutely adore reading them. I'm at a point in my life where I'm trying to be positive and see the good things in whatever I can and I'll tell you...it's not easy. Especially lately. I've been in a hole for a long time and it's hard finding good or happy things in everyday life, but I'm trying to get myself out of it and enjoy things more. As a person, I'm very much an introvert, I tend to keep to myself and not really speak to many people, so it's hard to experience new things and see the good. BUT, like I said, I'm trying. So I thought I'd start this little bit on my blog and see how it goes....



#1. Meal out for Chloe's Birthday.
My boyfriend's niece turned 15 last week and we all went out for a meal at TGIF's. I've never been there before but it's a place I've always wanted to go, so a group of 8 of us all went to celebrate Chloe's birthday. The food was delicious! I can't believe I've known the little beaut since she was 8!

#2. Let go of things that hurt.
This one has been a tough thing to deal with and really hard to stick to, if i'm honest. Basically I have stopped talking to my dad. To some, this wouldn't be a 'good thing', but ever since my mum died our relationship hasn't gone how I hoped it would and he just tends to upset me whenever I'm with him. So I haven't seen nor spoken to him in about a month now. It's hard and I wish things were different, but for now, this is how I need it to be.

#3. Read more books.
This year I set a challenge for myself to read 12 books. I'm a slow reader so I set myself a realistic goal for one book a month and I am almost done with it already, woop! I'm currently on my 10th book of the year. So I'm super proud that I've stuck with it. (You can add me on Goodreads...if you want....here).

#4. Bullet Journal.
I started a BuJo about a month or so ago and I'm really enjoying doing out the pages and creating colourful designs. I'm not really creative naturally so I've followed a few Instas for ideas and I'm loving it. My last page was a 'What I Want To Buy' page for the big things that I can't afford all at once....I think we all need one of these pages!

#5. Bones.
I have been re-watching Bones for several months now and I am finally onto the final season, which I haven't seen yet. I adore Bones. I've watched it since it started back in 2005...so when I was about 12-13. It's a bittersweet feeling reaching the last episode, I'm glad to finally see how it all came to a close but sad that there'll never be any more meetings in the Royal Diner or toasts in the Founding Fathers.

What have you been liking this week? Anything good happening in your life?

What I Watched: July 2017 ★


What I Watched in July 2017.
Despicable Me 3.
I know these movies are made for children, but c'mon, they are fab little movies! I paid for Alex and I to go see this at the cinema and we loved it. Alex and I's first 'date/outing' together was to see the first movie when it came out, so we've followed the Minions ever since. This one isn't my favourite of the franchise, but it made me chuckle. ★★★

Logan.
I have never watched an X-Men movie in my life, but Alex was wanting to see this when it came out, so we eventually sat down to watch it and, although I hardly knew anything about the first movies, I was able to follow it easy and ended up really enjoying it. Hugh Jackman is amazing! ★★★★

Sing.
Now this is a movie I wanted to see when I saw the trailers at the cinema. I know I'm 23 years old, but animated films are just amazing and I love watching them. I really enjoyed this movie. Even though it's not the best story (it is for kids remember), the music is my favourite part. ★★★

Leap year.
This is one of those movies which I can come back to it time and time again and still enjoy watching it and seeing it play out. It's a lovely, feel-good movie that I think everyone should give a watch at least once. It has Amy Adams in it, which is good enough. ★★★

Wild Child / Nancy Drew.
You know those days when you literally can't be arsed to get out of bed? Well that was me last month, I put Nancy Drew on as 'background noise' for when I was dusting but ended up watching it all. That then led me to Wild Child which also stars the fabulous Emma Roberts and that was that....my plans went to shit. Ha. I love both of these movies. They are the perfect films for chick-flick lovers. ★★★

Lesbian Vampire Killers.
I ended up watching this on a whim because I just couldn't be arsed looking for anything else and this was on after something I'd watched. I sort of wanted to watch this when it came out because I quite like James Corden and from the trailer it looked funny....I didn't really think much to it, to be honest. It had few silly gags in it, the story was silly and the effects was worse. BUT it's not bad if you just want something to watch. ★★

Hitchcock.
This one was a pick by Alex. I don't know much about Alfred Hitchcock besides he directed Psycho, so this was an interesting watch. Anthony Hopkins is amazing as the lead and I think he and Helen Mirren together made for a spectacular pairing. ★★★

Saving Mr Banks.
This is another movie that I knew nothing about when I went into watching it. Unlike most, I have never seen Mary Poppins and I know very little regarding it and Walt Disney, so again, this was a very interesting watch. I think Emma Thompson is such an amazing actress and this movie just made me love her more. Obviously Tom Hanks was fab, too. I mean, he always is. ★★★★

A lot of these movies were Alex's choices and good choices they were. I can never just simply pick a movie, I have to know about it and read reviews etc, so most of these were pleasant surprises!
