The Curvy Time Traveller



As a massive Doctor Who fan its always interesting every few years when they pick a new actor to play the Time Lord.
Debates become heated, should this Doctor be black? A woman? gay? Will the orphan of Gallifrey always be a white man?
Well so far the answer to that appears to be yes but the idea of a new time traveller fired up mine and Nicky Rockets imagination. Wouldn’t it be amazing if there was a female time traveller? Even better what if she was fat, feisty with oodles of attitude and unruly hair?

The new design

We may be waiting a long time for this to happen in the BBC series but in Curverella world this is already reality. Let me introduce you to our brand new teeshirt design “The Curvy Time Traveller”
Hopping between time zones like a sassy intergalactic warrior Curverella is one day taking tea with the Pankhursts, then dropping in on Cleopatra for eyeliner tips before going for a swift half with Anais Nin.

Its behind you

Sure she has seen all the amazing moments’ recorded about men by men but she is just as interested in checking out those shadowy historical women who were making waves all on their own.
If you look closely at historical works you will see her, reclining on a chaise as painted by Ruben, carved in stone (venus figurine anyone?), and Betty Boop? Well lets just say Curverella was going through her flapper stage when that cartoon was first animated.
Some things are bigger on the outside too

Her faithful assistant is always a pug (who do you think introduced them to Royalty, it was Curverella during one of her flings with a prince) and whilst she always uses her ability to time travel to do good, she is not above going back in time to pick up a discontinued lipstick shade either.
To say we have had fun with this idea has been an understatement. Spending a day at a local Doctor Who exhibition taking photographs with Weeping Angels and Darleks was without doubt one of my favourite days at work ever. I hope you love this design as much as I do.
Weeping Angel Attack

The perfect stocking filler to the Time traveller in your life or a pre Christmas treat to all you sassy Curverellas out there.You can buy it here and its £15 and you get a free sonic screwdriver toy with our compliments.

Feeling Supersonic

#Celfie



This weekend has been an absolute whirlwind. I travelled down to London on Saturday to attend the Plus size awards (where I won an award!! More on that later in the week) and managed to squeeze in a cheeky day out with the brown eyed crew taking in London in all its Christmas glory.
Just before I left Yours Clothing sent me this #celfie teeshirt £10 which I absolutely love. As an obsessive taker of Selfies or “Celfies” the irony isn’t lost on me and I’m a sucker for black tees with white logos in.
Having a cheeky mulled wine
I chucked it on with some black snakeskin print Jeggings £22 also by Yours and my white hightops. My coat is past season Matalan but Yours are selling this jacket which is very similar.
Be warned these photos were taken on my phone and I was very hungover so look a little boss eyed but hey if you want perfection buy Vogue. This is the blog of a fat middle aged mama. Its all good baby.

Trying to stay dry
On our day out it absolutely chucked down in London, torrential rain, a sea of brollys, just the worst kind of tourist weather really but the one thing about my family is that they will not be put off course, so despite probably needing a canoe we braved Winter Wonderland at Hyde park and it was brilliant. 


Winter Wonderland-just pure festive tackiness (I loved it)

If you need a fix of pure festive cheer I can not recommend it highly enough. Its got a fun fair, stalls, a German bierkeller, little ski lodges selling mulled wine (which we of course partook in, to keep us warm) and just oodles of Christmas inspired tackiness. I loved it.
Donuts
After a few hours we were thoroughly drenched so went to see the latest Hunger Games film (amazing) and then wandered up Oxford street and Regent street, just being totally blown away by the gorgeous Christmas lights. Nowhere does Christmas like London. Its simply magical.
Its Paddington
Highlights for me included hunting out all the Paddington bears dotted around,seeing Nicky Rockets being like a kid in a candy store in the Johnny Cupcakes tee-shirt store and the perfection of the creations at choccywoccydoodah
choccywoccydoodah

 Probably my all time “holidays are coming” moment was taking in the window displays at Selfridges. I was just totally blown away and despite the rain running down my neck, and the people treading on my toes was filled with childlike wonder. Those window dressers are wizards.

I am homeward bound now-tired, emotional with rain in my shoes and a hankering to dig out my Christmas decorations and spray everything with glitter. London you sexy bitch, you have put the jingle in my bells.

London I love you

Voodoo Vixen-A Plus Size V For Victory



I absolutely love the brand Voodoo Vixen
Fifties inspired clothes in glorious fabrics, their designs tick all my fashion boxes but sadly never used to be in my size.Pressing my nose against the window of their glorious frocks I was a Voodoo Vixen "Leche-Vitrines" aka a window licker-but no more.The arrival of a plus size range going up to a 4XL means now I too can strut my VV stuff.

I'm no longer a window licker
Jaunty Catalog posing at its finest

My first outfit for your consideration is the Tilly dress £44.99 and the Isabella cardigan £42.99
On a cold pissy November day this dress is like sunshine in fabric form. My favourite shade of mint green  with  a delicate pink flower design its just dreamy. I want to make out with it in the back of a Corvette.

How the dress looks on the website

I got this dress in a 2XL and I could have done with sizing up as its a bit tight around the titties but with a vest underneath I have just about got away with it. I'm loving the swing skirt and the jaunty collar-its retro heaven.

Retro heaven

The cardigan is so pretty I could eat it up with a spoon and I received so many compliments whilst I was wearing it.The pink trim and kitty cat design are cute as a button and I have worn this a lot. It works just as well with black cropped trousers and a pink bandanna too-Rosie Riveter does crazy cat lady.
Miaow

Crazy cat lady chic



Its fab that Voodoo Vixen are offering these sizes. Fingers crossed they offer even more soon because every fat babe deserves to feel this pretty.
I must mention my hair flower, its by a new company called Rockaflower who make the most beautiful hair pretties. Check them out.
Rockaflower
Life continues to be mega busy at the moment, I'm juggling quite a lot of work, lecturing, writing for magazines and have been helping Nicky Rockets launch his brand new teeshirt design so life is really good. 

Busy but happy

I'm particularly looking forward to next weeks plus size awards-not just because I'm nominated for three awards but because I will be catching up with loads of my fave blogger babes and also because the Hoff will be making an appearance. Amazing.

Off The Grid





A few months ago I was lucky enough to meet the Look magazine team as they unveiled their second collection for Simply Be. It was a fabulous event and I tried on various pieces from the collection and loved everything.You can read about it here

Check Mate

I was particularly taken with the grid Jacket  £75 so was chuffed when Simply Be sent it to me. I've since worn it to death but hadn't had  a chance to photograph it but seeing as today I have brushed my hair and drawn my face on I thought I would take the opportunity to show you how lovely it is.

 

Its a classic duster jacket style so quite long with pockets and a thin lapel. The fabric is a light poly cotton mix so doesn't look too lumpy or heavy and the design with its black and blue check is beautiful.
I feel quite Teddy girl in this and also Dynasty power bitch, what an epic combination.
Teddy Girl Power Bitch

I'm off to watch a firework display tonight so have worn it over a pair of jeggings and a long line top (both last season Yours) and a pair of Melissa ballet flats.
I birthed me a Pug 

Its casual, relaxed but also feels quite stylish. I'm loving it. 
The sizing is quite generous and as I have very small shoulders I have sized down but that's partly because I don't have to do it up so I am just concerned with the fit across the back and shoulders which is spot on.
I've been collared
I've always been a bit wary of wearing loud check jackets, worried there might be  a whiff of 1980s Selena Scott/Russell Harty but this is just a total beaut.
I think the Look magazine collection might be one of my faves this A/W aint it grand when fat fashion is good.

Don't Live Someone Elses Dream




Last week the author Elizabeth Gilbert (she wrote Eat,Pray,Love) wrote a piece on her facebook page that really struck a cord. Its worth reading in its entirety but the headline was "Don't live someone else's dream"
I'm a great believer that when the universe knows you are ready and listening it tells you everything you need to know and this random comment sums up my state of mind perfectly.
I know my blog posts have been fewer recently and I hope you don't think I have gone off the boil. I am still as in love with fashion and art and make up and films as I have ever been and have some lovely blog posts planned but recently I had been feeling a bit burnt out with how competitive blogging has become.
I had stopped seeing this as a glorious hobby and started taking it and myself way too seriously. The time required to stay even slightly ahead of the game was becoming exhausting. When I wasn't interacting on twitter, updating my facebook page, adding images to my tumbler account, pinning my photos to pinterest I felt I wasn't doing my blog justice but these things are all time thieves and recently I have decided I want some of that time back.
So I have to all intents and purposes stopped for a while and do you know what it feels like freedom.
I don't want to be so busy photographing my food I let it go cold, so keyed up about posting new blogs that I leave the solitude of a peaceful holiday to find wifi and I don't want my self esteem to be measured in likes on a facebook photo. 
Freedom
I love writing and have no plans to stop and I also adore clothes so whenever I feel sassy will take some pictures and share them but I think being a full time blogger is someone elses dream. My life outside of the internet is just too good for me to want to be away from it for the amount of time required to keep up with other established plus size bloggers (who I adore by the way this is all about me not  a thinly veiled pop at anyone else-those girls are all goddesses)
I want to spend time with my child, walk my dog, go for chai lattes with my beautiful friends and just have time to kick back and think.
Since staging my own online intervention I feel so much calmer.I have been journaling and tonight felt relaxed enough to write this but I think for a while at least the 3-4 times a week blog content needs to be rested. I need a recharge.
Life is good
So I'm not going anywhere, I will be back with regular fashion posts and I hope you stick with me but the pace will be slightly slower, the posts weekly rather than daily and the social media interaction more ad hoc. 


I am pursuing my own dreams and it feels wonderful.They include pink journals filled with ideas, geranium scented candles lit for my Goddess altar, walking through crisp brown leaves whilst listening to Richard Hawleys Cole Corners album and drinking hot chocolate in front of the fire stroking the cat.Oh and dressing up as a Weeping Angel from Doctor Who which I did on Halloween.
My Halloween Get up

I found a piece of paper inside a book the other day with a quote by Anais Nin which I had obviously copied from somewhere years ago. This was the quote:


"Throw your dreams into space like a kite, and you do not know what it will bring back, a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country"
Anais knew 

The universe knew what I needed!
