I am SO not made for TV. My piece on Cuppa TV/ Big Centre TV was aired today and I deliberately avoided the 10am showing as I just could not face it. I half watched and half heard the 4.30 airing through closed eyes and fingers in my ears. My voice sounds SO STRANGE that I may never speak again. Its very rare that I hear a recording of my voice and its barely recogniseable. If you missed it you can watch it here though it may not play outside the UK. If you are outside the UK and the link works please let me know!
I saw this in House of Fraser a few days ago and it stopped me in my tracks. A recruitment advert featuring a plus sized woman where they could easily have used a smaller model. It might be one in a series though I’ve not seen any other ads in the store and this one was in the men’s dept which makes me think it might not be. Unless……. they put the fat woman in with the men and the size 8 version of the poster on the popular women’s fashion floor. Hmmm… I hope I’m just over thinking the issue and that’s not really the case. I hope my original thought, that HoF used a larger model with integrity is a true telling of what actually happened. If that’s the case HoF then it’s a job well done. Can we now have some more bigger clothes too? Chesca is fine but I’m not 70 and I’m not the mother of the bride. Ta.
In London today? Nothing to do? come along and get a few bargains! I will be there with lots of plus sized vintage items and some of my own personal vintage too. Come and say hi!
It’s very rare for a plus size event to take place in my home town of Birmingham that brings bloggers from far and wide. An occurrence so rare in fact that its only ever happened once. Yesterday. Model Tess Munster was in town for a meet and greet, and bring them from far and wide is exactly what she did. I felt quite proud of my new favourite Brummy fatty shop for hosting an event outside of London- make the Londoners travel for a change!
As well as meeting Tess I also met baby Franklin who is another Instagram superstar- so much so that I spotted and recognised him before I even saw his mother. In fact, I couldn’t even remember his mother’s name (sorry Lolly!) but Franklin’s name rolled off my lips immediately.
It was hard work getting Mr F to smile as he just looked at me suspiciously for a while but it was worth the wait. He even managed to charm Tess- though as you can see he gave me a bigger smile

A great fatshion afternoon and I didn’t even have to leave the city.
