About Me

Hello! I'm Leah. 
Welcome to my blog. 

I'm 40 (yes, really!) and I love clothes, make up and new, shiny things. I generally post 7 days a week on a variety of subjects - you can expect plus size fashion outfits, beauty posts, fat acceptance/body positivity posts, reviews, swatches, my health and lifestyle posts about books, tv and films. 

I have Fibromyalgia, CFS/ME, thyroid disease, asthma and ovarian cysts, but I don't let that get in the way of my lust for life. I'm a hugger, a smiler, a laugher, a lipstick fanatic, and a person who lives in mild chaos but can always find room for another handbag or pair of shoes. My fashion icons are Bet Lynch, Pat Evans, Peg Bundy and Penelope Garcia. I don't really do subtle.

I live in East Sussex in a flat near the sea which has views like this:

I strongly believe in equality for all. I'm unashamedly pro-gay marriage, and this blog is for you - gay, straight, bi, male, female, trans*, disabled, able, black, white, brown, old, young, fat, thin, rich, poor - no matter what. We all matter. We all deserve love. I believe in polite, respectful discussion and 'agreeing to disagree' rather than conducting screaming arguments on the net.

A favourite quote: Better to write for yourself and have no public than to write for the public and have no self - Cyril Connoll.
