Can Simply Be, Really Be For Me?

So, I’m not a Simply Be kind of girl, I don’t know why. They just haven’t grown on me as much as I wish and frankly I find their prices for SOME items just a bit to high, for me. Yes I am a big bargain hunter. But I don’t feel that I have tried on enough Simply Be items to out rule them out of my life.

I see a lot of ladies in their clothes on blogs and the adverts on TV are amazing, but! I still just don’t see anything that says buy me on their website apart from what gets advertised. Oh No, I Lie, one dress that I got for my sister’s wedding.

So as the adverts are so tempting, I felt I better go to the store on Oxford street and take a good look. While on my enjoyable bus journey, I convinced myself to stay open-minded and be adventurous, find something that I don’t usually wear. And also find something that I do wear all the time.

I got to the store and went straight to the sale section as I usually do. And unfortunately found nothing that was really me or something that I could be adventurous with. I like flowers but not that much.
image

Anyways, when looking in the non sale sections, I saw a few things that caught my eye, mainly a pleated leather look skirt that unfortunately had the smaller sizes and none of the bigger ones, which I need. I also saw this white shirt that called me so much that I had to try it on. I don’t wear shirts often at all. Only due to my gaping breast. But this had no buttons.

I then picked up some jeans and a pencil skirt with another yellow shirt that just looked like it could brighten up the darkest days.

So items that I would usually wear are, skinny jeans and skirts.

Items that I don’t usually wear are shirts, at all, standardly.

Pro’s
I feel in love with both of these shirts. Colour and fit. And I will say that I feel they look good too. Plus the jeans fit very nicely and had a good amount of stretch in them. Also I can’t forget the changing room, so spacious and lit up beautifully.

Cons.
I wasn’t to impressed with the tube skirt, if it came in more at the bottom, I think I would be happy but it was just to baggy, not to say it didn’t look nice but I like my skirts tight. I suppose I could have got a smaller size but don’t think that would really work.
image

And lastly, the sizes in store. Especially the nice leather look pleated skirt. If an item is selling out fast, you better get stocking up on them very quickly. As the amount of stores that simply be have, you really don’t want the disappointment of not seeing something in your size in store.

Overall. My trip wasn’t that bad, actually it was pretty good. For general wardrobe wear, I can’t bring myself to buy items from Simply Be unless they are in the sale, ( tbh I buy most things in the sale) but if I really wanted something, I WOULD buy a full priced item from Simply Be.

Somehow I came across this post and I just had to share. Firstly the ladies outfit was spectacular from what I could see.

image

Her bright orange flared trousers and her crochet top looked beautiful from the back.

image

The way she danced only ment one thing, and that she ment business.
image

Then it happened, she jumped he caught her and with the sultry dancing that they both displayed before the lift, it was a dance that set the whole place on fire.
image

The crowd could only raw in excitement from what they saw.
image

Which was a medium size man who may I say was getting on down, to a plus size lady that he was able to pick up and maintain a dance in a way that only lovers should do.
image

With the anticipation building from when the lady took a jump onto his waist, he was able to grab hold of her and take full control in all his glory.
image

It worked and I am so glad he was able to show his strength and she was able to show her flexibility.

To round up this week’s spectacular post, I want to give those guys who know, their way around a plus size lady a big πŸ‘πŸ’ͺβœ‹πŸ‘Œ
Until next week.

Fears of the unknown, while trying not to get your confidence blown.πŸ’£πŸ’₯

I know to many people, I appear confident which I am to a degree. but most of my life my focus has been on everyone else, which would be through, friends, work or family.

image

Since starting The Kurve Kit Facebook page late March, this year.Β  My aim is to reach as much plus size people with fashion support and information, to help build confidence in living a plus size life. A friend of mine stated that I need to put a name to the face so people can relate to me even more, which I completely understand and feel is true.

Sharing pictures of myself on my personal Facebook page is easy, as I have friends and acquaintances on there and they all know me, but when having to post pictures and information of myself to people who I don’t know, somewhat makes me nervous. This opens me up for ridicule, judgement and just nasty comments from people who I do not know, but mostly do not understand the difficulties that I sometimes Β face in regards to the way I look.

image

I see so many women on social media who are plus size and constantly post pictures of themselves, in bikinis, lovely outfits, eating out and so on. That I have nothing but admiration for and support them whole heartedly, so why do I not have this admiration for myself ?

Well this is my time to put myself out there and really go hard in practicing what I preach. So I have decided I will now try to post at least one picture a week of myself on The Kurve Kit Facebook page and open the doors to me. This is my journey and in order to REALLY help and support others ( in not giving a shit about what others, who don’t know them,Β  have to say), i Firstly need to not give a flying F$$K too.

Yoga, Donna, Curvesome and Release.

Hey guys.

Last Saturday, I dolled up and took myself to my first curvesome Yoga class. I like to think I can flex and bend, but I still can not bring myself to go to a “regular” Yoga class, as my local seems to have mature crowd and fear they wont completely understand my struggles.

image

Arriving at the venue didn’t go down to well, which was simply due to having to pay, an arm and a leg for the parking. But please do not let that put you of.

Donna Noble, who runs the class greeted me and I was encouraged to join the group. Donna had introduced herself and a brief insight to her Yoga journey.Β  Then we allΒ  explained our reason for attending the Curvesome Yoga class.

I have read up about the benefits of Yoga and I sometimes feel it is a bit overrated (I know I was a bit closed-minded and shouldn’t really judged the practice untill I tried it) but when getting into the actual moves and leaning about things that I never knew about my body within 5 minutes of the session, it really got interesting.

image

Donna made sure she had techniques for all abilities and that we understood what we were doing and why. Donna has a lovely aura about her. She made us all feel comfortable, aswell as making sure we were able to do the moves. And if you struggled she stayed with you to ensure you reaped the benefits.

Towards the end, we had all done a move which gave me a non sexual orgasm (I know right),Β  well that’s the only way I can explain it. I think the aim was to open the pelvis ( Donna if that bit of info is wrong, im sorry! ),Β  but when she turned your head while in this position, you automatically released a breath/ sound. I actually don’t know what it was.Β  The feeling was amazing and it felt good.

Unfortunately I had to leave 5 minutes early, to get back to my car. But whilst driving home I felt on top of the world.

What makes me sad, is that was my only opportunity to get to this class. As Saturday morning are occupied by my childrens activities.

image

I would recommend Donna’s class to anyone who is plus size and wants to try Yoga. We all felt comfortable and happy, plus the ladies who took part were so lovely and funny, that as soon as I get a free Saturday morning i’m gonna find myself right back at the Curvesome Yoga class with Donna Noble.

image

AndΒ  maybe just to experience that non sexual orgasm again.

I know right. Its so true!

As I have been ill for the past two weeks, (hence the reason I havent posted any blogs), I have been making up for the days I didnt eat while I was ill. That wasn’t planned but its just happened.

If you are blessed in cooking good food, have a loved one that cooks up a storm or you love going to restaurants, why should you miss out.

Its like this, you know when you have that one person that gives you the best sex ever, but they aint good for you, cos they can’t commit, but you keep on going back. Yes thats it, thats me with food.

On a sunday when your roast was on point and you have finished eating, the dishes are done and your getting ready to watch the sunday night movie. That’s when your back in the kitchen to make a small bowl with the left overs. 😦

image

I know we have to learn to eat in moderation, but when it taste so good. It can be the hardest thing ever.
