Pictures from our trip to Blackpool. I know, most of them are from the zoo, but there are a couple more on my instagram.
We had really nice weather, which was great. We arrived on Monday 10th, checked in and had a really long walk which kind of messed up my knee for the time we were there >;(
On Tuesday we went to Pleasure Beach and on a couple of rides (not the Big One, too scary - days later a bolt fell off it, so good job we didn't go on it haha).
Wednesday was my birthday and we went shopping in the morning and in the afternoon went up the Blackpool Tower. Later that day we had a little walk on the beach.
On Thursday we went to Blackpool Zoo in the morning and to the arcades in the afternoon. 
On Friday we just sat down in a little cafeteria and wasted some time in the arcades before it was time to come back. 
We stayed at the Albany B&B on Albert Road. The breakfast was really nice as there was a variety to choose from: cooked sausages, bacon, different types of egg (scrambled, fried, boiled), hash browns, a selection of yogurts, cereals, flavoured milks, pancakes, croissants, fruit and toast, including lots of different jams and spreads. The room had an iron, ironing board, tv, kettle, closet, and the bathroom a nice and easy to use shower. The only thing we didn't like was that there was no room to put your stuff in the shower and also that mattress was one of the lumpiest and most uncomfortable ones I've slept on. Would I visit again? Sure! Would I stay there again? Only if they changed the mattresses.

Cheap Plus Size Clothing at Tbdress

Who said that plus size girls have to wear ugly, frumpy clothes all the time or that they are never able to look good? In this day and age there are so many options for them popping up on the high street and online, such as on websites like tbdress, where you can find very affordable items in bigger sizes, such as dresses, coats and tops. 

      
As you might already know, a little black dress can be a life saver as you can wear it to virtually any occasion so it will be the best option when you are feeling like you have nothing to wear. This cute number on the left features a sheer lace overlay on shoulders and upper arms which give it a sexy vibe, and the longer sleeves mean that this dress conceals what you don't want to be showing. It is figure hugging on the bodice which means you can show off your curves, but then it flares out right before the tummy area which can be comfortable as well as flattering. 

There are lots more cheap plus size dresses http://www.tbdress.com/Cheap-Plus-Size-Dresses-104175/ on the tbdress website, but if your style is more like 50's retro, or enjoy wearing more colourful things, then this is for you. This lovely figure hugging dress comes in a gorgeous teal coloured fabric with an all over polka dot print. With a sweetheart neckline it shows off your curves, while keeping everything under control with its flattering short sleeves. It also has a trio of decorative hot pink buttons on the bust and an equally contrasting skinny belt to show off your waist. 

So if you're looking for cheap plus size clothing http://www.tbdress.com/Cheap-Plus-Size-Clothing-103893/ head over to tbdress.

Argos Interior Haul

Quite a few months back we did a bit of shopping to organise our bedroom and got a few items from Argos.

As there was a lot of stuff that didn't have a place to be in so we got the Maine Tall Wide Bookcase, it's quite affordable at £34.99 and allows you to fit the shelves at different heights so you can put them on according to your needs.

A new clothes rail was also a necessity as the old one we had was broken, we got the Multifuncional Clothes Rail which features a couple of shelves for shoes, as well as adjustable height and wheels, it was less than half price at £13.99, unfortunately it's not available any more but this bamboo clothes rail is very aesthetically pleasing with its minimalistic design.

We got a full length mirror as well, ideal for getting ready, making the room seem bigger and reflect lighting too. I chose the Living Real Wood Full Length Cheval Mirror, which was an absolute bargain at £19.99 (normally £49.99). Ours is currently leaning on the wall but it has a freestanding design so you can place it wherever you would like.

And last but not least we got a floor lamp, as the main light we have is not bright enough for reading in the evening. I selected the Halogen Reading Light Floor Lamp in silver, it was easy to put together, comes with a fitted light bulb, and it's slim design means it fits easily next to the small space next to my bed.

We also changed the colour of our walls, to Dulux Atmosphere - a calming pale blue that adds more brightness to the room, as opposed to the darker blue that was on previously.

Have you made any home changes recently?

I really like this outfit, it's very simple but feminine and summer friendly. In fact I am slightly obsessed with that T-shirt and have worn it a lot (but not too much, as if that was possible anyway!)
