How to style a deep-v outfit when you have small boobs!

Hey hey everyone!

Now I don’t know about the other small boobed people in the neighbourhood. But I’m a size 8 everywhere and more like a size 6 in the chest department, and it seems that when I buy deep-v cut dresses, jumpsuits etc, I am left feeling a bit silly because there is SO much space hanging out where my boobs should be! So if I went without some sort of bra, my breasts would be out all night and I’m not sure I could handle chilly nipples for that long (or the strange looks).

So I thought why not write a blog about how I styled a jumpsuit that was too big for my boobs!

ENTER: The bralette! These days you can get many different types of bralette to go with all sorts of outfits. Some thick and some sheer like the one I’m wearing above! The model in the photograph was wearing this outfit without a bra but as I was struggling with this option I decided a sheer bralette with a floral appliqué would be perfect! To be honest I think that it only enhances the outfit as a whole 😁! I finished off the look with a simple necklace to divide a bit of the skin space left over and hey presto, I’m pretty impressed!

Ultimately, what I’m trying to say is, no matter your size or shape, with a bit of imagination you can rock any outfit you like, so don’t be put off certain styles because you look different to the model on the website!

I would love to hear your thoughts on the topic! So if you have a spare minute, leave a comment on this post!

Jolie Beauty Luxe Glitz Palette : Review + Applied

So I wanted to treat myself to an extra special eyeshadow palette. The kind you only pull out on special occasions. Or to write a review about of course.

I had seen Jolie Beauty products on Instagram and I just loved the colours in the Luxe Glitz palette at £25.99 (there’s a Christmas discount on the website at the moment so you could get it for around £22!) and it’s perfect for the Christmas season too if you ask me!

So as you can see in the photograph you get what I would call five complimentary sets in this palette. What I mean by that is, there seems to be a glitter shadow, then a matchy eyeshadow you can use with it!

Swatches of each below:

The glitter is of a really high standard and easy to apply. The eyeshadow isn’t very pigmented in my opinion as the non-glitter swatches required three layers. However once they’re on your eye they compliment their glitter companions very well!

Below are some images of me wearing the following colours:

I have also used some black eyeshadow to get the desired cut crease and I am so pleased with how it came out. I really can’t wait to try the other colours because they’re all so different.

When you see the glitter you think oh my that could be too much, but here I think it seems quite subtle.

I would wear this make-up look to a Christmas party/meal. You can glam it up even further by adding some false lashes too! I’ve got a jumper on as you can see 😂! Not exactly the best outfit to go with this look but I’m sure you could imagine an LBD for me 😘!

What do you think of this palette and have you ever heard of Jolie Beauty before? Would you like to know more about the other products I used for this look? Let me know in the comments!

Is it weird to wear your wedding dress twice?

My wedding day was absolutely amazing! It was beautiful and romantic, and I got to see lots of people of whom I don’t get to see all that much in my day to day life! That meant that I really wanted to soak up the good conversations and time spent enjoying the day, caring a little less about what the cake looked like and more about soaking up the love that surrounded me.

I had planned to wear my wedding dress until I went to bed, however I had only ever tried it on standing up and I realised at our wedding breakfast that I couldn’t actually sit down! I could get most of the way down but there was one last inch before I could comfortably sit on the chair haha! Apparently I chose fashion over common sense, but I lasted until 8PM (after the first dance) before I dashed off to change.

We got some absolutely beautiful photographs, thanks to the father of the groom (who was also our photographer) and we didn’t spend that much time taking them either!

So why wear the dress again?

I realised after I got all of the photos back, there was just one missing. It was a photograph of the back of my dress. Which I must admit I really did love. It may seem silly but I felt really quite sad that I wore such a beautiful dress, and would only have one half of it documented. I hadn’t thought to ask at the time and I really kicked myself for it.

I tried to think of possible ways of wearing it again without looking ‘crazy’ or like I wanted to keep reminding everyone of my recent trip down wifey lane. I kept telling myself off for being bothered about something so trivial. Then something happened…

It snowed!

The most snow I have seen in years in the West Midlands. I gazed out of the window for hours and I realised… This is the perfect day to get the photograph that’s missing! Again my mind flooded with, what if I look weird or crazy? What if people think I’m going to try and re-live the wedding day again for the rest of my life?!!!

Then I actually thought about it.

Why on earth should I feel bad about wearing MY wedding dress again? Why should anyone else’s opinion matter? And really, why would they care if I fancy prancing around in my wedding dress in the snow? That dress cost a hell of a lot, and if I want to get my moneys worth then I’m sure that’s my business! Am I right?!… I am so glad I did it!

I LOVE the photos! Thanks Mr Hemming-Marsh! I am so pleased that I broke through that familiar restriction of ‘what will people think’. I’ve decided that from now on if I’m worried about doing something that isn’t hurting anyone and is morally acceptable, I’m just going to go for it!

I would advise anyone reading to do the same! ✌🏻
