Bag Lady pt 2

Since I posted this about wanting a new bag… i got it and it’s all tucked up lovingly and warm at home! woo!






 
I’ve also bought 2 insanely expensive but amazing bags that i’ll blog up once they come out of their protective little dust bags!

And finally I picked up bargainous and super gorgeous tan Marc B satchel. I absolutely love Marc B bags as they are fashion forward and still maintain that timeless classic feel to them. I can see me using my new satchel as a go-to bag for many years to come.

Just as beautiful? Who decides?

Now I’m not normally one, despite being “plus size” myself, to buy in to the hype of size 0 vs 14+ but I have heard about a new magazine focusing solely on curvy ladies, even down to the adverts inside only featuring lovely curvy ladies.

I’m liking the press snippets so far as it seems all the ladies have a retro, 50s ish feel to them which I just love! Curvy AND retro ladies… *swoon*

Seems there has been hell on over this new mag if you take the Daily Mail’s article comments as it promotes obesity and validates an unhealthy lifestyle. Well I think that’s tosh. Being Rubenesque doesn’t mean you live on a diet of liquid pies! No doubt it’s the bigotted elitist folk who think the size 0 culture is fine but anything bigger… you might as well stay in the house and not dare leave.

I think it’s important to, hmm, maybe not encourage people to continue in an unhealthy lifestyle but important to show them that everyone should embrace their looks, size, ethnicity etc. Nowt worst than flicking through Glamour magazine and realising none of the outfits will fit anyone with the breasts of an adult and not a pre pubescent boy. It’s great for giving women exposure to new things and showing them there *IS* alternatives to the crappy shite clothes and features that most magazines think us ‘fat lasses’ want to see !!!

The magazine is called Just as beautiful and I will be buying it just to check it out for interest. If the magazine is rubbish I can always pass it on to my mate..”Retro Boy” he seems to have a pretty strong penchant for curvy ladies !!! I’m sure Radio Man will enjoy the gratuitous boob-age too!

Day 1 in the Trampy Lady house…..

So, here we go then. My first entry in to my new blog!! Eee how exciting is this!
 
Let’s give you a bit of background, I am 27, weigh more than I should and I’m slightly neurotic but thanks to the encouragement from “Radio Man”, “Long Suffering Friend” and my husband who will now be known as “The Wife” here I find myself.
 
I need somewhere to chronicle my journey to being a lady (queue Little Britain sound bites) to keep me on the straight and narrow and hopefully review any products, treatments, brands I find along the way that’s helped me or amazed me as a lot of this will all be new to me, and probably new to quite a few other people out there too. It also means ‘LSF’ no longer needs to listen to me whinge in jealousy at her latest TUKs or pretty going out skirts! *shakes a jealous fist*
I’m a tom boy, buy more leopard print than is healthy and obsessed with all things 1950s. I’m heavily pierced and have a few tattoos. This is not a good combination, trust me. I can’t walk in heels, I am not lady like enough to wear skirts and my handbags scream “circus clown” more than demure grown up chic and none of my bras match my knickers either. I am pretty obsessive over my hair and make up though. I’ve learnt I have to be after years of skin break outs, scalp blisters and straw like hair!

I’m stuck in a rut in my late 20s, No longer able to pull off the baggy jeans, pink mohawk and  clubbing 4 nights a week… not quite ready to let that go in exchange for pearls and twinsets either yet. So as I type, I’m in hippy limbo without a clue on where to go next !!!

The big 3-0 is my lady like deadline. By the time I hit 30 I hope to : 
 
1) Have beautifully healthy shiny bouncy hair in a natural(ish) colour. REMEDY – stop DIY bleaching my hair to a platinum-esque colour and condition more. Stop home cutting too.
2) Be groomed and have healthy nourished skin. REMEDY – Start actually using something more than water and baby wipes to take care of my super sensitive skin. Stop being a pikey and actually pay some money out for decent brands instead of shite in nice bottles.
3) Be able to spend a full day in high heels. REMEDY – Get practising!
 
4) Lose tonnes of weight and be a super svelte glamorous 50s pin up. REMEDY – Weight Watchers here I come baby!


5) Stop swearing like a drunk sailor and having more decorum. REMEDY…. not a clue LOL 



I have just over 3 yr and my journey starts here, and boy do I feel like Eliza Doolittle …….
