I’m back… with a new frock! 

I’m back… with a new frock! 

It’s been a little while, well a long while and soon I can explain where been, but we shall save that for another day! 

Any way I simply must show you this Dress I purchased from a company via their face book page Curv’i’licious

Isn’t it fabulous?!

I paid approximately £30 with postage and could have returned it if it it was unsuitable.  I chatted to the owner and she was super helpful even with all my questions! I have a particular material I avoid, I hate pleats at the waist, and the list goes on! 

This cold shoulder dress has a beautiful bright pattern which I adore! I am wearing a size 22 and felt extremely comfortable!

I’ve teemed it with bright pink strappy sandals from New Look which were £11 in the sale and are available Here.

I also managed to find a handbag in the exact same colour at a charity shop for £3.

As you can tell, I’ve also had a tan! Well a spray tan! I had an express tan at La Mia Bella at a bargain cost of £12 and if your local to Rhonda Cynon Taff you can visit the salon Here.

Overall I felt great about my outfit and had a fabulous night out! I won’t lie- my feet are still crying from those shoes so maybe a little gel pad would help out next time!

Lots of love


The beauty of my surroundings and their destruction…

The beauty of my surroundings and their destruction…

Apart from a few choice neighbours (a whole other story) I love my adopted town within Rhondda Cynon Taff, Wales.

At the end of my road, literally, I have all this beauty:


With stunning views…


 And what I like to think of as secret paths…. 

I walk up here almost every day when I am home. It is beautiful, breathtaking and  a privilege.

However, lately there is a trend for setting the beautiful Welsh mountains alight.  After the lucky spell of dry and sunny weather the ground and greenery is dry and crisp, and will easily burn causing untold devastation to the plants and wildlife that call these mountains home.

I am disgusted that any one would deem this as fun.  

It is a mindless act of crime that not only destroys our beautiful surroundings and wildlife, but also stretches our hard working emergency services.

It seems that most of the firemen and women of South Wales have had to deal with grass fires this week, which puts lives at risk.

Who is doing this? If it is adults, shame on you! If it is children, where are their parents? Regardless, people need to be held accountable for their actions!

This is not my usual type of blog post, but I have been so upset this week.

Not only have I seen the ‘green green grass of home’ turn black, wildlife killed or displaced, but also exhausted emergency services. It is ridiculous that in this day and age mindless destruction is seen as fun.
