Yes the temperature has certainly dropped and its officially “bundle up” weather. It’s much too cold for flimsy cotton skirts so how about some wool ones instead?
Would it be a really daft statement to say that my favourite shape is the triangle? To the point where at school, I was sometimes as Diane the trian(gle). I’m not sure if that name came about because Diane almost kinda rhymes with trian(gle), or because of my fondness for the shape. Its a kind of chicken and egg situation. In fact, now that I’m thinking about it, I believe I had a penchant for purple triangles in particular which a) makes me seem even dafter and b) negates the notion that anything you like as a child is a phase that you eventually grow out. I always like to defy conventional thought.
Browsing Etsy I came across these enameled brooches by Sketch Inc that sent my multicoloured triangular heart racing.
Pleasing to see an abundance of purple triangles to satisfy the 14 year old in me that refuses to grow up.

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.
