Phenomenal Woman


Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size   
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms,
The span of my hips,   
The stride of my step,   
The curl of my lips.   
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,   
That’s me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,   
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.   
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.   
I say,
It’s the fire in my eyes,   
And the flash of my teeth,   
The swing in my waist,   
And the joy in my feet.   
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.

Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Men themselves have wondered   
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can’t touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them,   
They say they still can’t see.   
I say,
It’s in the arch of my back,   
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.   
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.   
When you see me passing,
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,   
The bend of my hair,   
the palm of my hand,   
The need for my care.   
’Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Maya Angelou. 

Rest In Peace, your work will NEVER be forgotten.

B-loom-ing Bands



If you have experienced this,

loom bands on carpet

This,

loom bands on sofa

Or even this, 

loom bands in coffee cup

Then congratulations, someone in your household is now making Loom bracelets. I say congratulations because while you are throwing packs of brightly coloured bands at your offspring it means that there are less bands in the world for me to buy.

Glittery ones, coloured ones, even glow in the dark ones, ALL of these have now been sucked up by my Hoover, been scooped out the loo and ended up in my bed, occasionally I too am made a Loom band which, if made by the 8 yr old is so bloody tight it cuts off circulation to my hand and turns my fingers blue. (I wonder, if I try to choke myself to death, will it feel like someone else is doing it?) 

Don't get me wrong, I love these pesky little bands, they keep my children amused for hours. (Usually when I've tied them down with them) and I must admit, the 14yr old is getting REALLY inventive and clever with them.

But the fact is, these pesky little bands get in more places than they really should, my house is overrun with them! We have a SHOEBOX full of them, and yet my children are thirsty for MORE! 

loom bands

(These are just the ones I picked off the stairs) 

(Not really) 

All of a sudden these bands are everywhere, and I don't just mean in my house, I've seen parents elbowing each other out of the way in toy shops for the last pack of glittery bands (sorry about that) and my Facebook is FULL of parents showing off the bands that they have made (I'm not sorry about that) 

Had your household been infected with the Loom band craze? 

Can you make good ones or seen any great tutorials? 

(My eldest also made a Minecraft one, I was very impressed, not so impressed by the fact she gave it to her sister who left it at school!) 

Let me know how you are getting on, and does anyone else keep having to buy new hooks? I can't be the only one.

Not All Men,



I have a son and I REFUSE to blame all men for what individual people do.

I do not blame ALL men for a man that refuses to take no for answer.

I do not blame ALL men for a man thinking that a woman was asking for it because of what she was wearing.

I do not blame ALL men for women being paid less, or being treated differently or being whistled at or being shouted at in the street, or being harassed or being stereotyped.

WHY is this the fault of all men? I do not understand? I have a son and two daughters, I am bringing them ALL up to believe that they can be who they want to be, to be proud of who they are. and neither my daughters OR MY SON should be ashamed of their gender.

The battle is not with the whole sex, the battle is with individuals and I refuse to hate all men including my son and my partner who support me in all that I do because of assholes.

How can I teach my daughters to be individuals, while the world tells my son that men are all the same? 



There are some sick, sick people out there, male and female. but no-one deserves to be tarnished for something that someone else has done. I am seeing hatred, I am seeing anger, but aiming this hatred at a whole gender? Is that fair?

My son is 12 years old, he has two sisters, he is being taught to be respectful of everyone, not just women, everyone, and my daughters are taught the same.

It is NOT all men who are the issue, it is not my son. and I refuse to have the man that he will grow to be, tarred with the same brush just because of gender.


It is NOT all men.

How do you feel about this? do you disagree with what I am saying here? Let me know. As always, this is a friendly place to be and everyone's opinion matters to me. Let me know what you think.

Is there coffee in my hand?




This is me. No seriously, I am completely unable to form sentences without a cup of coffee in my hand in the morning, which is a bit of a problem when I have to get 3 children up, ready and out of the house to get school in the morning.

My greatest purchase over this last year has been a coffee machine. If you are going to pray to the goddess of coffee to be kind in the mornings, then I'd rather do it over a machine where I can fill my cup then walk away and then come back a couple of minutes later to find my cup of coffee ready to drink.
(although, usually what happens is it gets made, I forget and then come back ten minutes later to make a coffee and am pleasantly surprised the coffee goddess heard my prayer)

I have a Nespresso machine and have found lately companies are now making Nespresso compatible pods for this machine, which completely rocks my world.

Before I purchased my coffee machine, I must admit, I thought that buying a coffee machine would be a waste of time and money but I do find that with my machine I do get that cup in my hand a lot easier in the mornings.

My name is Kellie, I am a coffee addict, and yes, I have had my coffee, you may talk to me now.


How about you? Do you worship at the altar of coffee too? Are you a kettle or a machine sort of person?


Let me know.

As always, comment in the little box below. (Go on, you know you want to)

And now without further ado, I bring you today's, Nom or Vom....

I Adore, Adore


I think it is safe to say that over the last 6 months I have been experimental in my hair colour.






(How it has not fallen out yet, I don't know) 

I have tried pretty much every bright hair colour there is. Directions, Crazy colour, even the Schwartzkopf packets, and found them ok but never really the perfect colour, or if the colour is fine they fade like the memory of a Justin Bieber misdemeanour. 

And then for the purple, I tried the Adore range. 

I had never heard of the range before seeing it in my local hair shop and the style of the bottle really put me off at first. It looks cheap and nasty to me. 


But the range of colours really grabbed me so I picked up a couple of bottles of Violet Gem as they were just £2.99 and decided to give it a try.

And I've never looked back. 

The colour staying power is phenomenal. Unlike Crazy colours which I find fade, or Directions, which continues to come out everywhere, the Adore dye stays bright and true. I've just topped up the colour this week but I just added it to conditioner to refresh and found that leaving that on for a while has brought the colour back to it's original brightness easily. 

The colour choices are fantastic as well.


I can't recommend trying these highly enough. You can buy them in various hair shops, but I have also found them on EBay and Amazon as well as various online stockists. 

I'm definitely going to try out the Aquamarine at some point, and one of the oranges too. 

What colour would you go? 

Let me know.

Sorry, I Ovaryacted



Ovaryaction - A reaction made whilst on your period. 
(That noise you hear is the sound of all the men leaving the site) 

One can not be held responsible for an ovaryaction, it's hormonal, isn't it?

Apparently standing in the middle of Asda yelling, "But WHY do they not stock Always Maxi towels? They are like a hug for my vagina" is an ovaryaction.

Who KNEW?

Crying at a McDonalds advert CAN be classed as an ovaryaction.

Eating ALL the chocolate in the world MAY be seen by some as an ovaryaction, however I just call that, Saturday.

So ladies, when you find yourselves having to apologise for something you have done while on your period. Now you have a name for it. It's an ovaryaction. It's not your fault.

give yourselves a hug, (and get some Always Maxi pads) 

Have you ovaryacted lately?

I need a laugh, let me know.

Oriflame Event



On Saturday, I was invited to an event in Leeds held by Oriflame, being the sociable type of blogger that I am, I jumped at the chance to find out more about the brand that I remember my mother talking about when I was young.

The brand ambassador for Oriflame is MUA Gary Cockerill,


Gary is an inspired choice for Oriflame, he sat down with us and told his story about how he became a make-up artist, showing true passion for his job and his great belief in going out and working hard for what you want.  Gary was honest and open with us all and explained the range to us in depth, giving us a few handy tutorials along the way which were most welcome, (especially for me as I smear my make up on with a trowel)

Gary was promoting the new range by Oriflame which is called, The One.



The One are the main core products in the range, made better. We all got to see the range and I have to admit, it has left me wanting to find out a lot more about Oriflame and the products that they sell.

Gary showed us the range on a couple of willing guinea pigs  bloggers.







Everyone was impressed. We were given samples of the range to try for ourselves. I highly recommend the lipstick, (I've worn no other lipstick else since Saturday) and the nail varnish is a beautiful shade of pink that really looks great in the sunshine.


Obligatory shot with the famous person.
(Wasn't he lucky?)



You can find out more about Oriflame here -> gb.oriflame.com


Are you a fan of Oriflame? Had you heard of them before or ever been to an Oriflame party?

There is a woman I know,



There is a woman I know,

She looks like me,

And whenever I see her, she tells me I look fat. She tells me that the dress I am wearing doesn't suit me, that my hair is frizzy or my teeth aren't as white as they could be, she tells me that I CAN'T do it, even if I am sure I can.

She whispers this things to me. No-one else can hear her, just me. She plants the seeds of self-doubt and helps them to grow. It doesn't matter how I am feeling, whenever I see her, she is disappointed in me. It can be the silliest thing that she finds fault with, my knees, my arms. but when she points out the faults, I cannot think of anything else.

She says that she is doing it for my own good, that she is being honest in a way that no-one else can be. If she doesn't point these things out, then surely other people will see, and laugh, and judge.

I can go a long time without seeing her, I push her out of my life and ignore her. but she seems to always come worming back into my life, her poisonous words laced with honey as if to sweeten the blow. I have been known in the past to get changed after she has pointed out my flaws, sometimes to not even go out if she has been particularly cruel to me.

I haven't seen her for a while, she hasn't visited for a long time, I like it that way. I have confidence, I believe in myself, I trust myself and I am happy with how I look and the judgements that I make. IT is nicer without her judging me.

She is my biggest critic,

There is a woman I know,

She looks like me,

She is me.

Tit Tape, Tits and Trucks.



Yesterday I was given the opportunity to try something called a Bye Bra. I received a very personalised email, "Dear Fashion Blogger" extolling the virtues of something which means you no longer need to wear a bra. 

Tit tape right? 

Now, being overly blessed in the chesticles department, my first thought was how I could bankrupt this company just by the postage alone, I just imagined that any tape strong enough to hold my boobs would have to be delivered like this. 


My second thought was (I'm going to need more tape) I can imagine my boobs ending up looking something like this.


There is NOTHING in the world that I would like to try out less than breast tape, my boobs need more support than even The Samaritans can give. There is NO tape in the world that can hold these ladies up. I'm going to stick to great underwear and leave the tape to those more fortunate than me. 

Have you ever tried any tit tape? I would especially like to know if you have big boobs and you've tried it. Did it work, or did you end up in a sticky situation?

Let me know.

Feel The Burn



A couple of days of sunshine and this country turns into vampires that have discovered 24hr sunblock. 

What IS it with the UK that when the temperature reaches 20 degrees people decide that what they REALLY want to do is increase their risk of skin cancer by basking in the sunshine until they burn and peel?





Over this weekend there has been more burnt flesh than at the last BBQ I attended and it is really not pretty to see. If aliens invaded earth now they would call back to their planet saying, "Earth is fantastic, there are so many different colours of people here, white, brown, red......"

The first glimpse of sunshine and people just strip off. They have worn 17 layers all winter, but now? Oh now they worship the sun god Ra and must sacrifice allllllllllll their clothing to him. (and a couple of layers of skin too)

And now today, you can see people walking around, visibly flinching as their clothing rubs against their "sun tan" (burnt to a crisp) proud of themselves that they have a colour.

NO.

STOP.

Now I'm not telling you that you have to be pale and interesting,
(although you can if you choose to be) 

But LET'S use some common sense here. Skin cancer is still on the rise, It is May, there is plenty of sun left, it isn't going to explode any time soon leaving us on a desolate, cold, slowly dying planet. (disclaimer, I take no responsibility for it the sun does actually explode now) pace yourself, USE SUNSCREEN, wear a hat, avoid the sun during the hottest part of the day if possible.

Then not only are you treating your skin with care and consideration and minimising your chances of skin cancer........

You won't look like a twat with sunburn either.

And I won't laugh at you or judge you harshly.

Seem fair?


Have you seen people doing this over the weekend, or have YOU experienced the burn of the sun this weekend?

Top Tips For Curvy Girls



Let's face it, finding clothes to fit your body can be hard, especially when you're on the curvy side. It often feels like there's almost a uniform us larger ladies are expected to stick to and trot out of the wardrobe for every occasion (leggings and a tunic, anyone?). It doesn't have to be that way though. Knowing how to dress for your shape and what suits your body is key to looking great whatever your size just so happens to be. Some great tips for finding the right clothes for you are:

  • Invest in great underwear. No outfit is complete without the addition of some fabulous underwear. There is little point buying a pretty dress when it shows off all your lumps and bumps and makes you feel self-conscious. Large busted ladies should always get their bra size measured. Wearing the wrong size bra will make you look frumpy, dig in, show tell tale lumps and bumps under your clothes and above all won't provide you with the support you need. No one wants their chest to touch their stomach, so lift your assets. A proper bra will lift and support you in all the right places, making anything you wear look a hundred times better in an instant. Other great items to invest in are Bridget Jones style support undies. Not necessarily the big knickers favoured by Bridget herself, but you'll easily find the find the right underwear solution for you among the shaping underwear available.

  • Don't be afraid of colour. Many ladies shy away from colour, preferring instead to blend in with head to toe black. Perhaps choose a colourful maxi dress from George to help you stay cool and fashionable this spring and summer, include the tropical print that is popular this season in your wardrobe - or if you really can't tear yourself away from good old faithful black, accessorize it with colourful jewellery, bags and shoes instead.




  • Know the clothes that flatter your shape. Wrap dresses and tops are this curvy girls best friend, along with belts and anything else that follows the natural line of my body. If you have a large chest for example, there's no point trying to hide it under a turtle neck or ruffles, it just adds bulk and actually makes you look even bigger and rather matronly to boot. You're much better off making the most of your assets and wearing tops to flatter them - V necks for example are great for this. Ladies who have a smaller bust and larger hips are better off wearing darker colours on their bottom halves and lighter ones up top to even out their figures, and those who are more straight up and down should try to emphasise their waists with belts and detailing around the middle.


Dressing for your size can seem like a nightmare, but it really doesn't have to be. So find the right clothes for your body, stop hiding in the corners and shine like the beautiful woman you are.

The W Word



Britney Spears once sang,

"I'm not a girl, not yet a woman"

(Yes, I am quoting Britney Spears, don't worry, I'm not planning on making a habit of it) 

Now Britney can spout some crap occasionally, but you know what? I'm 38 years old and I am FED UP of companies stealing my status as a woman and trying to turn me into a girl.

Firstly, how does a girl drive?

Because if I hear the jingle on the radio that goes, "Drive like a girl" one more time then my radio is going to see if it can fly without wings (Westlife lyrics? Oh this shit just gets better and better) 

How does a girl drive? No please, tell me, because I'm under the impression that girls cannot drive, because they are too young! Women drive cars, Young women if you wish, but not girls.

Why do you steal our womanhood from us. 

And don't think Boots can escape my wrath.

"Here come the girls, girls. Here come the girls"

Boots, WOMEN, they are women. they are obviously women. Tell me Boots, why you want to play us like this?

Why do advertising agencies want to portray as as girls? Is woman a dirty word? Does it have undesirable connotations that I as a WOMAN am not aware of? Should I be ashamed of myself?

And I am sure there are lots of other examples out there of companies using the term "girls" instead of women, aren't there?

If you can think of others, please let me know.

And I want to know how you feel about being called a girl instead of a woman.

And how DOES a girl drive? Because this is going to bug me until I find out the answer.


Let me know.

Florals, With New Look, Inspire Range

I am not a "floral" person. Pretty, ditzy floral prints just make me look as if I am wearing them for a bet, but as Spring crawls round I yearn for brighter, spring-like clothes that I can wear without looking ridiculous. 

And then in conjunction with New Look, I found something that I fall in love with and helps me make the jump from my winter wardrobe into spring without me breaking into a cold sweat (Can you tell I am actively trying to avoid the word transition? It's like fashion blogger bingo here) 

When I was asked by New Look to try out something from their Inspire range I thought I would try to push myself from my comfort zone and try out something different. 

BOOM. 



Look at this for florals. This is pretty, it tells me it is spring and I can dress it up or down (Bingo) 

I will take this print in everything you have please, New Look. 

fashion

I have fallen completely in love with this sheer blouse from New Look, which can be found -> HERE  Especially with the weather being as changeable as it can be. I can wear it open over a vest top or as I have been wearing it, buttoned up with jeans and a blazer jacket. 

Casual enough for day wear or the office, I don't even mind working in the garden wearing it. (Hard life, isn't it?) 



I love the sheerness of this fabric.

So what do you think of my choice? Personally I'm loving the Inspire range from New Look at the moment. My only sadness is that they don't seem to have much of the range in-store and I'd much rather try things on. 

But if you do want to check out the Inspire range, you can do so here. New Look Inspire

Stephen Sutton, Rest in Peace



I've followed the story of Stephen Sutton for quite a while now and his death in the early hours of this morning, announce a couple of hours ago has left me feeling quite emotional and tearful. 

But then I stop, Stephen wasn't emotional and tearful on his journey. I am sure that there were times when he was, but he put his energy into something important. He has helped raise a HUGE amount of money and awareness for charity, he has inspired cancer sufferers, and people like you and I to give 100%.

19 is no age to die, there is never a right age, but what I want to do is learn from Stephen's passing. Today, go and look at the sky, feel the warmth of the sun, look at the clouds, hug someone, do something nice for someone for no reward and try to find a way to make Stephen live on forever in how he changed your life. 

I think that will be his legacy to everyone.

I Have A Confession

Yesterday, someone tweeted this picture.





Firstly, the answer is ANSWERING the cow. Seriously, I am sick of helping this kid get home. Can her parents not tag her?  Give her a curfew? How old is Dora anyway? I am all for children playing outdoors, but lets face it, the real question here is, does Dora have imaginary friends that she has created just to make up for the obvious lack of love from her family, OR, do they exist and Dora The Explorer is just like Adventure Time on acid!!!!!!!

I have a confession, After three children, the eldest being 13 and the youngest being 8,

IF I NEVER SEE ANOTHER KIDS CHARACTER AGAIN IT WILL BE TOO SOON.

Let's not even get me started on Mr Tumble.  (seriously, don't)

And apparently I am not alone, yesterday when I commented that kids characters now make me break out in wine, a lot of you felt the same.

Apparently, one of you has developed an irrational hatred of Bear In The Big Blue House. (Completely understandable) 

A few of you mentioned that Blues Clues gets switched off before it comes on so you don't have to even look at his stupid blue doggy face.

And Peppa Pig gets my vote for kids character I could actually see myself eating.


My worst, my absolute worst, is THIS



How Max didn't lose his job after locking this brat in a store cupboard I will never know. I would have. Whenever my children switched the programme on, I felt like locking myself in a cupboard. Shudder, the best moment of my life was when my children grew out of this programme. (Sad, but true)


Now I have confessed, I feel much better.

And now it is your turn.

Which childrens tv character makes you want to put your foot through the TV?

Who pushes YOUR buttons, making you press the off button?

Don't Be A Dick



Last week I was extolling the virtues of Social Media with my post, Look Down

And I stand by it, completely, but over the last couple of days I have seen so much crap behaviour that I want to share with you some rules of Social Media. These were shared with me as rules to live by, and I fully embrace them.




Rule one of Twitter.

DON'T BE A DICK.

Rule one of Facebook.

DON'T BE A DICK.

Rule one of life.

DON'T BE A DICK.

If you feel that you cannot abide by these, quite frankly, simple rules. then all social media and other privileges should be removed from you, so that you can only communicate with people by crayon.

Rule one of Crayon use.

DON'T BE A DICK.


If you feel that you ARE a dick.

DON'T BE A DICK.

It is simple, for some, not being a dick may not come naturally. You may have to practice at not being a dick. Try tweeting a compliment, instead of an insult. Tell Piers Morgan his hair looks pretty, Retweet Ricky Gervais a couple of times. Unfriend that ridiculous group, Britain First and for the love of god stop sharing pictures of poorly children and thinking you are making a difference.

You may slip, you may be a dick once or twice. this can be overcome by not BEING A DICK.


Together, we can work to eradicate being a dick.

Go forth people, spread the word, and share with me your rules for social media and life.

Ben Affleck Banned From Vegas Casino

The last time I mentioned Ben Affleck here at Big Fashionista, it was when guest blogger Ella went all the way in on Muggs—aka Uggs for men. She had a good point because, well, the trend was right up there with other things that make me (and all of you, I'm sure) want to absolutely *vom*. And leading the way in the Muggs "revolution" was Affleck, whose 2013 continued to go downhill with the release of the abysmal Runner Runner. In case you haven't seen it yet, I'll sum it up for you: Ben Affleck's character is a online casino giant/swindler who ultimately gets served by one of the people (Justin Timberlake) he screwed over. To be fair to Ben, his acting chops were perfectly fine... it's just that the movie itself was complete and utter shite.




With that in mind, it's not terribly surprising to see that he's gotten into a bit of casino-related trouble. You see, the clearly talented gambler was recently throwing down at the blackjack tables at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. According to InterCasino's description, the Vegas-style approach to the popular card is particularly "thrilling" because four decks are used. You'd assume with that with all the cards being dispersed that the act of counting cards—known as making probability swing in your favor—would be impossible. Not for ol' Ben, who was able to keep track and take advantage of the system, which led to quite the unforgettable evening for the actor/writer/director.

You see, Affleck's card-counting scheme didn't go unnoticed. Now, to be clear, it's not like card counting is exactly illegal, but it is highly frowned upon by casinos across the globe. So when security guards at the Hard Rock figured out what he was up to... well, they promptly got rid of him. True story. The L.A. Times reported that he was tossed from the blackjack tables at that casino—for life! They apparently are OK with him playing any other games there, just not blackjack. That same article notes that he previously made bank ($800,000) playing the same game in the early 2000s.

The good news for Affleck, at least, is that he's got plenty of other stuff going on, so it's not like this banning is about to make much of an impact. In fact, he's so busy with his work that he was forced to delay his latest project as a director, Live By Night, according to Entertainment Weekly. The reason being that he's too tied up with his role as Batman in the next Superman movie, which is due out in theatres in May 2016. As for Live By Night—originally set for a December 2015 release—don't expect to see it until October 2016.
