Primark Haul: Growth & Patience and Faith

Hey, all today we are talking Growth, Patience, and Faith! But as usual, let us start with outfit details.


The clutch and skirt were £5. When you go to Primark check the metal boxes, they have outlet stuff in there and it is often reduced to £5 or even lower.  So go get yourself a deal ladies!


The process of developing physically, mentally, or spiritually

There's no point in doing anything and if you know you are not going to grow in some manner. Growth can come in many ways, as stated above. The key to understanding growth is patience and faith. With my blogging sometimes I get all into my feelings that "I'm not growing .... the timeline I planned is not being achieved" but it takes time. Oprah Winfrey didn't become who she is in a blink of an eye, Rome wasn't built in a day and Mircosoft of Apple started small.

Time is key to allowing growth to take place, believe in your abilities and strengths then let the rest flow naturally. It is hard because you see other bloggers who are going to events and creating content they can sell and you would like to do that too. But remember you have to crawl before you walk. Everything is a process. There is a difference however between trusting the process and being lazy. If you want something and your not taking any sort of action, there is no way it will come to pass.


The capacity to accept or tolerate delay, problems, or suffering without becoming annoyed or anxious.

When challenges come while one is growing patience is key also. Mainly because it will assist you in persevering through the hard times. When the followers are stagnant or when you are in a compromising position and you can't make content, patience is needed. It will help because you will end up seeing your current position as another process to growth and something you can learn from. One thing I know is that no condition is permanent. You may be stuck now but it won't be forever.

Complete trust or confidence in someone or something.

You may be patient and willing to grow and learn but if you have no trust or confidence in your abilities it is all futile. Even I fall victim to things like this, questioning myself when I style outfits or make content "who will watch this" "I'm too fat to wear this I'm not like other curvy girls" "does anyone even read my blog?". This is what I think sometimes but I push those thoughts away and realize that negative thoughts aren't going to help my growth.  If I can't trust in my own abilities who else will? Sometimes I know we look for people to talk to and to help but it is better to be your own NO1 fan and be able to encourage yourself.

Puma Plus Street Wear

Hey all! Hope everyone is having a great week! This week we are talking streetwear, in the Plus Size Community. First, we are going to start with the outfit details.

Top from Asos  (sadly out of stock but look here for alternatives) 
Jean Old ones just wear any Blue Jeans
Shoes from Deichman 
Accessories from TheAfrostylist

The main reason why I want to have this discussion is that I do feel like the plus community is quite narrow and stringent. It often dictates what plus size women want to wear, for example, mainstream sizes can get any sort of clothes they want even within the brand's shop. But for plus sizes, its completely different, these brands automatically assume that plus size women won't want to wear a two-piece suit or set.

All, I see is baggy clothes weird looking tracksuits and tunics. To be honest, now I am just tired. But the new Puma Plus wear is quite nice and also very fitting and I haven't got the budget to get it but I am just so happy that we have a nice option.



I would love for alternative wear for plus size women, let plus size girls from ends be able to get tracksuits that are not in the mens section. If there is big and tall for guys there should be the same for girls we can not assume that plus size women are automatically the same height but different sizes.


This is short and sweet just expressing my views and being excited about the new Plus Puma line. But yeah I hope there is more to come. I am quite alternative sometimes in how I dress and I cant bring my visions to life when the sizes are just so weird. All in all check out the Puma street wear line!

Lady In Red: Love & Gender Roles

Hey all! Hope all is well, sorry for the late post had an essay to submit and had to leave the blogging life for a min. But we are back now better than ever! 

As usual, we will begin with outfit details!

TOP IS FROM PRIMARK £4 (all my uni girls, this is a good buy you can wear it with a bright bottom and just look boujee at the same time. Remember to wash with all whites or with your hands) 


As all know this month of February is the month of love and everything Valentine. So today we are talking Love, Gender Roles, and the Black Community. 


To me, love is unconditional in all manners and your physical appearance doesn't determine how much you love that person. I have never been in love but I have been infatuated, had a crush and even thought I was in love but little did I know that it was far from that. For all my plus size girls this month try to be a bit more open. If you receive flowers or get asked out as long you want to, have fun and engage with it.

 Don't limit yourself from having an experience or just meeting someone new because you have your own insecurities.  Take your time, don't rush anything and don't go out with someone if you know they are going to make you feel uncomfortable or coerce you into doing something you may not want to do. Lastly, don't accept bread crumbs or leftovers when you know you deserve diamonds.  

Gender Roles. 

There has been a lot flying around Twitter, about different expectations of relationships, who pays on the first date and who buys gifts. To be honest, I don't believe in a guy paying for my food or drink compulsorily. I feel as though guys who ask a girl on a date pay for everything and have these expectations at the end. Before I used to think a guy has to pay for the date and do the most with the flowers etc. If as a Feminist I am pushing for equality in all areas, why can't I pay for the first date? A good friend said to me that is how you check a guy has respect for you. 

When it comes to the second date and he has an expectation for you to pay again then you need to either correct him or trash him (don't speak to him again). However, it is a personal decision. I am the type of person to buy guys flowers if we're going on a date. First, because it is funny. Second, it is to fight against the notion that only girls like flowers or romantic gifts. I would either find out what he likes generally, I feel that as a woman completely empty-handed to a date is kinda awkward. But again it is personal, I just don't want gender roles to be relevant in my relationship. 

Guys are so hyper-masculine these days, it inflates their ego when they pay for girls expenses or they feel less of a man because a girl buys him flowers. I am not about that, to be honest. I'm in a relationship because I love and respect my partner, I am not present in the relationship to inflate your ego. 

All in all this Valentine have fun, experience new things and be responsible!
