Have you heard of ELOQUII?

Hi all.
I thought I write a post on a US brand, I recently contacted and I am.very impressed with.

As I am a frequent twitter user, I found this brand on twitter by the name of ELOQUII. They are based in the USA and cater for plus size. So I contacted them via direct messages through my twitter.

I fell in love with this brand straightway. Their clothes are today’s fashion trendys, fashionable, fresh and right on point. I love USA brands as they know how ti cater for us plus size ladies and get it right and know what we want. Just wish the british designers took note and see how it’s done in the US.

So I have been networking with their PR team, who have been very good and sent me some images to post on this post. Due to high blogger requests are unable to send me anything to review.

The range is fierce. Heres some of there range for you to see

Being a single mum and finding it hard to date

I haven’t blogged in a few days as I been busy and with kids, it’s hard. Anyway, I am writing this post about finding it hard to date when you got kids. I am single, 35 and got 3 beautiful kids whom are devote my time to and our my world.

After serious of bad relationships and no contact with kids fathers’ I feel it is the time to search for love. I am not getting any younger, if you know what I mean 😉 and kids will all be grown up soon and leave home.

But kids and dating don’t mix as I been finding. To some guys kids are a issue especially if they are not theirs and someone else. Some guys have told me they can’t accepted the kids and that they are a issue and come in the way.But do like me for me or criticise they way I look sometimes, especially my weight.

End of the day I am a mum and can’t change that and my kids didn’t ask to come in the world.They are here cause god wanted me to have them and to be their mum. They come part of the deal and if you can’t accept them need find the door and leave.

It is hard for us single mums to find love and for our kids to be accepted. Nights get lonely when they in bed and it’s hard when you hear your friends are so in love and don’t have time or even married and you wonder “When is it gonna be my time”.

Well all I know is that I be waiting and god knows when my time is and who he is and preparing him for me.

So the say is “Best things comes to those who wait” I know that is right. So single mummies enjoy yourself and your kids. When mr right comes life will be much better and complete.

Coping with being overweight and self image issues

Today I thought I write a post about my ongoing weight issues and self image how it affects me everyday.

Most of my life, I have been battling with my weight. I wasn’t a big during the early days.But as soon as I reached my teenager years thats when I started piling on the weight and self imaging issues started. Going to all girl school and not being in the ‘popular’ crowd and feeling that your looks and weight could be the issue doesn’t help.

I hated my secondary school days to the max. Wondering why I am not attractive, no boyfriend and my weight. Why can I be pretty and slim and be they the popular girls in school. I was teased abit and felt alone and isolated and just had few friends in school, whom none I keep in touch with.

College days weren’t too bad. But the weight issues and self believe started. Comparing myself to others and doubting myself.

Being the eldest out of seven sisters and one brother, I feel I am not pretty? slim and good enough. My sisters are pretty and slim and I am the ugly duckling and no boyfriend etc. Having people tell you that your sisters are beautiful and you’re not really hurts.

I founded out I was diabetic after turnt 30 and suffered from high blood pressure in  my early twenties. The weight issues got worst and having three children hasn’t helped.After having my children, I have dramatically dropped from a size 24 to a 18 and kept it off for few months and then it all goes back on.
My weight and self image has been problems to my past relationships and not been nice. Which now I have a issue when it comes to men and trust issues.

Also , going in to shops not be able to buy trendy clothes in my size and like the clothes in the normal range gets me down alot .I ended up most of the time not buying anything.But instead I comfort eat alot, just to make myself good and better about myself.

I know deep down inside I never be happy but have to accept this is me and and theu way I was made. I am ‘unique’ I am ‘beautiful’ as Christina Aguilera says ‘words won’t bring me down’

Alot of this is down to media and what they pervice as beautiful and not. I feel I don’t want my daugther with image issues and weight thing like myself. That’s why alot of girls today have eating disorder and self image issues.I believe there needs to be more plus size models and that they are beautiful as well.

As to my weight, I will be trying to lose it and try and get to a size 18. My health is important and now affect my knees and I need to do this for myself but most important myself. I don’t wanna be in a grave early and leave my children. I am doing it for them.

My visit to Kaspas in Catford

So heres a new post. I visited a new dessert bar in Catford called Kapas in the summer holidays to celebrate my little sister’s 12th birthday with the family and my kids. I been hearing alot about Kapas from other people. With great reviews and the popularity it has with everyone.

Kapas have number of chains in London and was so happy when they decided to open one in Catford. It was jammed pack, when we arrived and didnt have to wait long for a table.

The decor was black and pink theme.Black glitter wall paper that I have fallen in love with and want for my room and pink and black leather chairs. It was like you was in a bowling/ roller skate palour. I was very impressed.

Music was playing in the background old and the lastest rnb and pop songs. Oh we had a sing song and was getting down lol.

Now lets get the most important part, ‘The menu’. Omg, you be in heaven. The menu had variety and catered for all. Variety of ice cream flavours from bubblegum to oreo cookies, crepes with different toppings and served with cream and ice cream. Different waffles with toppings plus ice cream, gateaus, milkshakes,  the list goes on. You be in ice cream heaven lol.

So I choose the crepe with strawberries and strawberry sauce. Also served with ice cream and fresh cream
image

Omg been a diabetic and one sweet thing a week..I was in heaven.It was presented well.And tasted so good and the crepe wasnt too sweet.Light and fluffy. I will definetly order this again.

The price was value for money from £ 4.95-£ 25.95 and was happy. Kapas is the hippest, fly, happening and ice cream dessert bar in town and I will be visiting more often with my kids and recommended it to everyone. Peeps visit Kapas today and you’ll sure be in ice cream heaven !

Must have winter coats from the asos curve range

Well I thought I take a look on the asos website today for a winter coat in their plus size range, Curve.Omg I was in heaven. So many to choose from. Trendy and fashionable. Heres my top four

image

first one is the  asos curve duster coat. This is the in coat this winter. I was a fan of the duster coat in the beginning, but now I am, especially this one. You can dress either casual or evening.
Second coat I say is a must have is the carmakoma funnel coat

image

Leather combined with wool. This is very in this season and this coat is very costly.But it’s always good to invest in a good coat for winter.Love this coat aswell.
The third coat is Junarose padded hooded parka coat

image

This coat is by a danish company whom also have a really good range which is available at asos, evans and other retailers. This coat comes in white and black. This coat seems very fitted and shows off your curves well.Another investment if you want a good coat to last every winter.
My last amd fourth coat is Junarose boyfriend coat

image

This coat is the opposite to a duster coat and a shorter version.This can be dressed down with this down with jeggings or jeans with either converses or chelsea boots or evem biker coat. This is yet again another one for the wardrobe.

My overall favorite is the Junarose padded hooded parka coat and maybe have to invest in this winter.Parka coats never go out of fashion. So take a look on asos website which is http://www.asos.com for inspiration.

My Cut for Evans and That Day wish list

So I been hearing alot about two new ranges able at Evans this autumn. I am so impressed and have a wish list of items, I wanna show you.

First brand is That Day. a new brand which is has a vintage style to it. The clothing is vintage, elegant and can dress down as casual and evening. That day have surely done their research and have come up with a beautiful range for this season and can’t wait for what else they will do.

The three items on my wish list for this brand are

These items are me and teamed up with leggings, tights, boots or nice pair of loafers or ballet pumps, you be looking like a million dollars with the right acceasories aswell.

The next brand available and am impress with is Cut for Evans. This a range which Evans have invited and chose designers by university fashion students to show case their ideas and desingers. I think this is the second collection that Evans have brought out which I was unable to afford and purcharse. This collection has a retro / 80s vibe about it. More focus on the younger generation. But who says you can wear it, my age of 35. Hopefully, this time round. My two favourite pieces are

Evans are sure on the money with autumn collection and very impressed.I remember the days, I use to regularly buy from their Seven range which I feel they should bring back out.

As a single mum, kids come first and as I don’t work no more am on a budget.But be defintely saving for these.
