Dopamine Dressing: Dressing to Feel Like Me! | rosie abigail

January Favourites 2022 | Books, Style, Home DIY, and More…

By the time the last week of January rolls around, I am so ready for a new month to start. Surprise, surprise, 2022 is no different. January was just so loooong. Payday is ages away, expectations for a new year are always high, and the weather is bloody freezing. I was at least hoping for…

November Favourites 2021 | Autumn Style, Books, Chronic Illness Aids

With November coming to an end, we are jumping headfirst into the winter months now folks. Goodbye crispy brown leaves, hello freezing your tits off in the car as you wait for the windscreen to defrost. We say adios to pumpkin spice, and hola to peppermint, baubles, and the pure panic of remembering you are…

Is Being Mid-Size Anti-Fat? | Mid-Size Style

Before I delve into the mid-size 'movement', I want you to say something with me. F-A-T. Fat. Say it, get your mouth around it. Fat fat fat fat fat. Fat is a descriptor. It is not a bad word. Before we delve into this, I need you to understand that. There’s so much personal and…

Making a Midsize Capsule Wardrobe | Style

It’s only taken me four years, but we are finally here! It’s capsule wardrobe season, baby! Let me backtrack a bit. Quite a bit... I’ve always been interested in fashion, but I’ve never been fashionable. I’m a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl, but not in the IT-girl-Alex-Chung way (more in the ‘band tee and…

November 2020 Favourites | Skincare, Style, Books, and More…

It’s been a good few months since I’ve posted a favourites! Four months in fact. Time really does fly when you are in a global pandemic… My last favourites post was for July 2020 - I had just turned twenty-four, had gotten engaged, and was trusting in the media that we would be out of…

Let’s Get Re-Introduced! (and how I became the first search on Google...)

Let’s Get Re-Introduced! (aka my blog is on the first page of Google?!)

Wow. Something really darn cool happened to me today, and I still can’t wrap my head around it. Let me fill you in on a little storytime.  Like most people on the planet, living and working whilst in a pandemic has been a struggle. The world seems to be falling apart, my anxiety is all…

July 2020 Favourites | Books, Skincare, Style, and more…

Seven months down, only five to go. Is anyone else struggling to grasp that concept? I know I am; I still think it’s March a lot of the time… Anyway, let’s not dwell on the fact over half of the year has passed by in a lockdown-induced blur - let’s focus on the good! And…

May 2020 Favourites | Style, Audiobooks, & more!

Just like that, another month of lockdown passes. I swear this month lasted about a week. Or all my weeks blurring into one?... Anyway, all I know is that May is nearly over and June is almost here. I’ve been struggling to adjust to the abnormal level of heat we’ve been having (thanks global warming),…

What is Mid-Size? | Style, Fashion, and Body Neutrality

To paraphrase Mary Poppins, ‘I am practically average in every way’ - physically, at least! I am the average height, average bra size, and average clothing size for a woman in the UK, which obviously means my body type is not reflected in fashion at all. Makes sense, right?  Typically, the fashion industry caters towards…
