Casual Curvy Style for Summer

There’s something about millennial style that screams dodgy tan-lines. From cage bikinis to mesh panels and lately, the cold shoulder style tops and dresses. But hey, they’re cute and I’m ginger so it’s not like a day in the sun will turn me into a not-quite-all-over bronzed goddess (think patchy lobster instead). Here’s how I’m […]

Dreams La Romana, Private Pool Day

This years dream holiday to the Dominican Republic is becoming a distant memory all too quickly. I’ve still got a serious case of the holiday blues but it’s about time I told you about the incredible trip we had. And where better to start than with one of THE most amazing days ever?! We popped […]

OOTD: Plus size poolside and the fat/skinny debate

Every year you can count on at least a handful of brands to make the ‘bikini body’ slip up. All it takes is the first glimpse of sunshine and twitter is fired up in a vicious circle of fat and skinny shaming. This year we had the #skinnybirdwatching from Taking Shape UK (who went with […]

OOTD: Caribbean Crochet

Fashion Friday is back (on a Saturday it would seem) and this weeks edition comes from warmer climates! If you follow me on Instagram (you can find me here) you’ll know I just got back from the Dominican Republic and 11 nights of absolute bliss. I shot a few of my favourite summer looks whilst […]

The Curvy Beach Edit

If you live in England like me, then let’s be honest, the only bit of sunshine we’re likely to see is if we jet off to warmer climates. So I’m obliging. In four weeks time I’ll be sunning myself somewhere dreamy. I’ve already virtually packed and my ASOS basket could put me in more debt […]

OOTD: The Striped Shirt Dress

This weeks Fashion Friday comes all the way from sunny (umm) Brighton. The other half and I spent the bank holiday weekend by the sea and whilst the weather wasn’t glorious, it wasn’t freezing either. So I grabbed my new stripey shirt dress from New Look and headed for the shore. Somethings in life are simple, […]

The #BrightonOrBarbados Weekender

When you get offered the chance of a trip to Barbados for £49, you say yes. And sometimes, you end up in Brighton. After getting over the initial disappointment of swapping sandy beaches for a pebble one, I started to look forward to the adventure and obviously did lots of research on restaurants we should […]

OOTD: Coachella Summer Festival Vibes

Every year when Coachella rolls around, my news feed is flooded with enough lace, crochet and fringing to keep the Oslens in business till 2070. And it’s perfect timing! My winter pieces are slowly (this is Leeds, mind) being packed away and replaced with my favourite summer styles. Luckily, I’ve found the dream dress to keep […]

#BrightonOrBarbados Wardrobe Wishlist

Whilst you were probably hard at work at 10am Wednesday morning, I was haphazardly hitting the refresh button with more enthusiasm than words can describe. The result? Thanks to Carling, the other half and I will be spending our bank holiday in one of two destinations: Brighton or Barbados. Since we find out Friday it doesn’t […]

Dreams Punta Cana Caribbean Getaway*

It’s taken me quite some time to get over the fact that I can’t just live in Dreams Punta Cana forever. I spent ten nights there last year and never wanted to leave. I’d just gotten my go pro which I was so excited to use, more so than my camera. I really wish I’d snapped […]
