Don't Beat Yourself Up Just Yet...

Recently I have been beating myself up about my lack of achievement and progression in my life. I have been struggling with my procrast...

I'm Not "That" Blogger, So Who Am I?

Time and time again, I find myself facing the same old feeling of insignificance, of feeling so different that you're irrelevant. That feeling that no matter what you do, what you wear or what you say, you'll just never be "that" blogger. And time and time again, I find myself asking the same questions "Do I need to change myself in order to "make" it as a blogger? Do I need to mould, twist, turn and shape myself into this "#goals" worthy, blogging babe, who makes wearing baseball caps look sexy? No, frankly speaking, I shouldn't. But once more, time and time again, I find myself in a mind-bending frenzy filled with these questions about my blogging ability, creativity and my general sense of self. It makes me wonder, and in wondering, I enter the unforgiving world of the overthinker.

There's no denying that there is definitely a gradient curve on the types of people that are blogging full time. Now, I definitely don't mean that in a judgemental way, I mean it more, in a perceptive way. And I have perceived that there are definitely certain trends that correlate amongst the "BIGGER" bloggers.

#Goals #Bloggerbabe #Bae These are just some of the words some of us bloggers and social media folk will come across in the up and coming era of the blogging, social media and internet stardom. But when I see these words I constantly wonder if I could ever be anyone's #EverythingGoals or whether I could ever get as overly-hyped for avocado and poached eggs as other people do. I mean heck, I love avocados and toast as much as the next person, but I just never feel the need to Instagram or tweet a photo of it. Do you get what I mean?

And then I start to think: Am I doing it wrong? Am I not being a proper blogger, when I decide against Instagramming the meal I had last night, mainly because it's usually something quick like spaghetti hoops on toast. And in reality, that's not really Instagram worthy is it? But do you get my drift? I feel like, because I don't have an interest for these things, I'm doing blogging all wrong and I'll never be as successful as the bloggers that do actually like and do all of these things.

I've always felt different. I don't know why, but I just have. I constantly wonder where I fit, in this big, bad,  largely populated world. I wonder, whether I will ever be perceived as "pretty" enough to be picked for the next big beauty campaign or "#ontrend" enough to be picked for the next big fashion brand shoot. It makes me wonder, whether I'll ever be enough for anything?

I don't know, perhaps these thoughts are stemming from my insecurity woes. Perhaps, there are just too many people having avocado on toast, for at least one person not to Instagram it, and perhaps none of it even matters. Perhaps I need to forget about these so called "influencers" and start influencing my own self-esteem. I need to celebrate, the little, weird and quirky things that make me little Heather Chambers from Sheffield. I need to start to appreciate the fact that I'm writing a novel, and while I can't exactly Instagram the words I'm typing on my computer screen (which are #cute btw), it's still an immense achievement and one that I should be proud of.

You see, I'm already "That" blogger.  I'm that Blogger Heather, a one of a kind, limited edition, that should not feel the need to live up to certain interests and expectations just to climb higher. Because in doing so, you may lose yourself along the way.  But then in saying this, it brings me right back round to the insecurity woes again, and I end up asking myself: Will I ever be enough?

3 Ways Lingerie Increases My Confidence + *Debenhams/Wonderbra Giveaway

Thursday, 23 March 2017

Wonderbra deep plunge Black Bra, Debenhams Bra, Debenhams Lingerie, Debenhams Womenswear, Debenhams, debenhams giveaway, competition, giveaway, fashion, confidence, style, UK life and fashion blogger, lingerie, underwear

I've always been the kind of person that is somewhat defined by the clothes that I wear. Not in that horrible, shallow I-wear-expenisve-labels-so-I'm-better-than-you kind of way. But more in the, way of having such a guard up and being so afriad of showing people who I really am, that the only way I find I can truly express myself is through the clothing that I wear. Fashion has always been my go-to, my way out, a way to find inner peace when it felt like everything around me was in utter chaos. It helped me to develop a sense of identity amongst a group of people, I never even knew I had and it helped me to finally feel like I belonged somewhere.

Similarly, lingerie, just like my outfits of Fedoras, preppy plaid and pretty high waists, help to build up this strong sense of identity from within. As crazy as it sounds, when I put on the right fitting underwear in the morning, that sits beautifully and comfortably against my skin, I just feel like I can take on the world. It gives me a confidence like no other and today I would like to delve a little bit more into what exactly I mean by this "confidence" and the effect that wearing beautiful lingerie can have on your everyday outlook on life.

I'll also be giving you all the chance to win the confidence winner of all lingerie brands...The Wonderbra, so keep on reading to find out how you be in with the chance to win a great bra.

1) GET A BRA FITTING - 

Wearing the correct size bra, really does impact how you feel internally. Wearing our correct size, gives us better posture, which in turn leads to us walking taller and for me, feeling confident. Underwear does not define us but wearing the right size ones can definitely promote confidence, self -sureness and also helps to contribute to a more positive wellbeing.

2) FEEL LIKE I'M DOING SOMETHING RIGHT -  

I don't know about you guys, but there is literally something about wearing matching underwear, that makes me feel like I have got all of my ducks in a row and adulting the right way! Even if superficial, this perceived idea always crosses over into my every day life and makes me feel oh so confident and oh so ready to take on the world!

3) BEAUTY FROM THE INSIDE OUT - 

If it's right on the inside, it's right on the outside - The right bra can help carry off an outfit better, act as a sexy accessory for a summer outfit and also be a support system to your everyday wardrobe.

I'd love to know how wearing Lingerie or undergarments affects your everyday confidence. Does it make you feel confident like me? Or does it infact make you feel less confidence? I'd love to hear your thoughts, so please do leave me a comment below.

Now, let's get onto the fun part of this post, the review of the ever classic, ever versatile wonderbra and the chance for you all to win this bra wonder of your own! Keep on reading to find out how you can win the 'Ultimate Deep Plunge Multiway Wonderbra'...

REVIEW OF THE 'ULTIMATE DEEP PLUNGE MULTIWAY WONDERBRA':

Wonderbra deep plunge Black Bra, Debenhams Bra, Debenhams Lingerie, Debenhams Womenswear, Debenhams, debenhams giveaway, competition, giveaway, fashion, confidence, style, UK life and fashion blogger, lingerie, underwear

When my most recent blogger package from Debenhams dropped through my letterbox recently, I very nearly cried with happiness. After hearing so many good things about Wonderbra, I was so grateful and excited to be given the chance to review a bra from such an iconic brand and was so excited to be giving one of you lovelies a chance to win one too.

Here's what Debenhams say about the *Wonderbra Ultimate Deep Plunge Multiway Bra:

 ** “Unique patented technology offers unrivalled support and the famous Wonderbra cleavage. A must-have bra for deep and plunging necklines. Experience an endless irresistible cleavage and the sexiest effect you have ever had” 


Wonderbra deep plunge Black Bra, Debenhams Bra, Debenhams Lingerie, Debenhams Womenswear, Debenhams, debenhams giveaway, competition, giveaway, fashion, confidence, style, UK life and fashion blogger, lingerie, underwear

FIT:

The bra features the multiway straps, which allow the wearer to wear the bra the classic way or with the straps crossed at the back. The use of the straps, I feel helped to provide me with more support, especially if wearing something with a plunging neckline, I found that I didn't have to worry about the bra slipping, or losing it's grip. It also gives the wearer more flexibility to decide how tight or loose you wish the bra to be.

Wonderbra deep plunge Black Bra, Debenhams Bra, Debenhams Lingerie, Debenhams Womenswear, Debenhams, debenhams giveaway, competition, giveaway, fashion, confidence, style, UK life and fashion blogger, lingerie, underwear
Now I haven't tried many deep plunge bras, but I found that although secure and supported with minimal movement, with high activity and increased movement, it tended to bunch up around the cleavage area, which created a slight discomfort when wearing it. I did try to adjust the straps, however I still found this to be somewhat distracting when wearing it and was definitely something that became a hinderance as I progressed throughout the day.

STYLE:

Now when they say that this bra is for "deep and plunging necklines", they truly do mean it. The bra plunges as far as a plunging neckline can go and actually does what it says on the tin. I can't begin to tell you guys the amount of times I have made to order a plunging neckline bodycon to wear on a night out, but refrained because a) I was worried I would never be able to find a bra discrete enough to pair with it and b) I was far too chicken to go braless! This bra, is the perfect addition to my party wardrobe and now means that I can wear all of those plunging neckline bodycons from Missguided that I have been dreaming about for years!

This wonderbra is available in colours Black and Nude, making it the perfect addition to any plunging neckline as it will act as a neutral base to any glam look. It also makes matching up your underwear (because matching underwear, totally means you are adulting the right way) a lot more easier if you're a neutral nancy like me, who is a stickler for all of those blacks, nudes and whites of the fashion world!

Going back to the points I made at the start of the post, the Wonderbra makes me feel confident. It makes me feel confident enough to go out in a plunging neckline and not worry about experiencing a nip slip. It makes me feel confident enough to show off my body in a feminine and sexy way. It makes me feel confident as I am able to wear clothes that allow me to truly express who I am...and to truly be myself.

My Life As A Perfectionist Blogger

Tuesday, 21 March 2017


My Life As A Perfectionist Blogger, stripey turtleneck, uniqlo roll neck top, stripes, fashion blogger, perfectionism, green eyeshadow look, uk lifestyle blogger, 100 ways to 30, imperfect, not good enough, being hard on myself, self-critique

I'm a perfectionist. and anybody who knows me knows just how much it can be my greatest quality and just about the worst thing to ever happen to me in this life. It is a blessing and a curse and quite frankly I'm not quite sure which opposing word beats the other.

For as long as I can remember I have had this trait within me and for as long as I can remember it has been affecting my life in more ways than one. 

However more recently it has gotten to the point in which it is completely debilitating my creative outlook on life. I have become a serial procrastinator for fear of producing something that is less than perfect, therefore the work I actually want to complete never gets started, let alone finished. Which leads me to the question of "How much perfectionism is too much? " and "When does it actually start to become a problem?". I would say when it  starts to impact the work you do in a negative way and hinders you from completing anything of substance. 

My Life As A Perfectionist Blogger, stripey turtleneck, uniqlo roll neck top, stripes, fashion blogger, perfectionism, green eyeshadow look, uk lifestyle blogger, 100 ways to 30, imperfect, not good enough, being hard on myself, self-critique

I remember when I started this blog, I was still a perfectionist back then, but I was a little more tolerable and compliant with what I allowed my perfect little mind to publish. I would get an idea, take some photos and then just churn out whatever crap was swirling around my mind (in a coherent way of course) I never worried about whether, the photos I took were magazine worthy or as good as another, more high profile blogger. I never worried about my writing having to be in tip, top, Hemmingway-esque condition (because who else can do that, but Hemmingway anyway?). I never used to worry whether or not I had the right amount of photo to text ratio (I mean, seriously Heather?). And while I did worry a little bit about these things to some degree, I never used to let it bother me to the point where I was afraid to post things or be so damn critical of everything I wrote.

I am a perfectionist ok, heck I admit that about myself. However the problem starts when I let this perfectionist beast control my every move and suck out all of the creativity from inside of me. Because if anything, creativity has to have a little bit of imperfection in it, otherwise how does it stand out from a crowd? How does it become wacky, if it's got all of it's perfect lines and all of it's perfect edges?....it doesn't that's what! I hate that I have let it control me, and I have begun to realise that it is TOO much. There is a line, a line in which perfectionism can go from being a good and helpful quality to something that is completely debilitating and self-sabotaging.

My Life As A Perfectionist Blogger, stripey turtleneck, uniqlo roll neck top, stripes, fashion blogger, perfectionism, green eyeshadow look, uk lifestyle blogger, 100 ways to 30

Clearly my perfectionism has become a problem. I never blog consistently anymore and I haven't written anything fiction wise in months. I am hesitant to start writing new fiction material for fear of it being rubbish. That thought is RUBBISH and I need to change the way that I'm thinking. I need to start doing things as and when they approach my mind. I need to stop overthinking every single little thing I do. I need to write more blog posts and start creating in the way that I used to before - more for myself and less for what I feel will be well received in the blogging world. I need to start being a little less perfect and give rise to the imperfect. Only then will my creativity flow. Only then will I create awesome things. Only then will I be truly happy and satisfied with my work.

Are you a perfectionist? If yes, how does it affect your blogging or work?


As always, thank you guys so much for reading. Until next time, I'm...

Does The One Really Exist in Love?

Thursday, 16 March 2017

Does the one exist?

I have seen this question floating about in Love land too many times to count. The phrase 'I think I've found the one' is constantly spewed out of the mouths of the female leads in the rom-com's I so religiously love to watch. So much so, that finding the one has grown to become this worldwide (somewhat fictitious) phenomenon that little girls are made to grow up to believe in and embark on an everlasting goose chase to find this supposed "one". But do they actually exist? The one. Does he exist? Does this very perfect-for-me, human who I have so much in common with, that we become the best of friends, actually exist? Does this person who is supposed to move heaven, earth, wind and fire to be with me, actually, wholly and fully exist?

Does The One Really Exist in Love? Single girl, single life, single ladies, love, men, relationships, dating, The one, soulmate, uk lifestyle Blogger, 100 Ways to 30

I wholly believe in the theory of "the one" I believe in finding someone so perfect for you that it hurts. Finding someone who lights up your dark and depressive days. I believe in finding someone who makes you believe in yourself and ultimately who makes you believe in love. 

I have only ever fallen for 2 guys who I ultimately believed to be "the one" Unfortunately for me, contraire to popular belief, I am not living happily ever after with either of these guys because a) one of them just didn't believe me to be "his one" and b) I pushed the other one so far away, he didn't want to come back. And by the time I realised how much I had come to care for him, it was too late. 

But just because I have lost those two, perfectly perfect (seriously they were good eggs)"ONES" does not mean that I will now and forever, spend the rest of my life alone. It just means that I must continue to trundle on as I had been before, and wait for my next "The One" to show up.

You see, finding "The One" just like many things in life, is time dependent and situational. While two people can indeed fall in love, it may take one of the parties longer to realise that they have indeed found the one who makes their head go loopy and their legs weak at the knees. 

To depart you all I will leave you with this. Perhaps the one is not necessarily "The One". Perhaps the term should be revised to "The Ones". Perhaps love is blinding. Perhaps it does make us loopy in the head and weak at the knees. Perhaps the two guys I believed to be "The Ones" for me were only supposed to be a part of my journey and not my forever.  And perhaps the one, is just a figment of our wild and crazy psyche. Perhaps...perhaps. As I always say when I discuss these very trivial issues, the belief of having one true significant other to spend the rest of lives with forever and ever is subjective and the opinion of "The one" is dependant on the individuals in question.

As for me. I believe in the one, but I also believe in having "The Ones" for different periods of my life. I have already had my "The One" for high school. I was also lucky enough to find "The One" in my 20's. Heck I'll probably even find another "The One" in my 30's (Hopefully he will be the one I stick with)! I know a lot of people are hell bent on the idea that there is only one perfect one out there for us all, but my belief is different.  I actually take great pleasure in thinking that I will have the joy of thinking that I have found the one all over again, when he does come along. This time he might be forever, this time he might not, only time will tell I suppose. 

5 Reasons to Get a Bra Fitting + A Debenhams Giveaway

Monday, 27 February 2017

5 Reasons to Get A Bra Fitting, Triumph Bra, Triumph Lingerie, Debenhams Bra, Debenhams lingeries, Debenhams Womenswear, Lingerie, Bra fitting, Debenhams Giveaway, Fashion, Uk Fashion and Lifestyle Blog, 100 Ways to 30, Black Lace Bra, So Perfume, underwear, womens underwear

If like me, you went years and years with never having a professional bra fitting, you have probably been oblivious to the negative effects it can have on your health and wellbeing. Today I am going to talk through 5 Reasons why you should consider getting a bra fitting. Then, I'm going to review 2 very pretty pieces of lingerie, include some pretty photos and then give you lovelies a chance to win some pretty lingerie yourself! So basically, this post is about ALL of the pretty! 😉

Wearing the correct fitting bra is so SO important to women's health, it increases physical, emotional and mental wellbeing all while making you look absolutely beautiful! Having a bra fitting was probably one of the most enlightening experiences to come out of my 2016 (which, let's be honest wasn't all that great for anyone really.) and I would urge you guys to definitely give professional fitting a go. Debenhams offers professional fittings, which are carried out by a qualified team; who are comfortable and relaxing and I would definitely recommend you giving their service a go.

5 Reasons to Get A Bra Fitting, Flowers, Uk Lifestyle and Fashion Blog, White tulips,

Still not convinced? Well let me give you 5 Reasons to...

1) Physical Health Problems...You probably wouldn't have ever have made the connection, but did you know that wearing too small a bra could cause headaches, due to the tension the straps create within your neck and back? But it's not only wearing too tight a bra that can affect you, wearing too loose a bra can also cause you back pain, due to the lack of support a correct fitting bra can give.

2) For your Future Self...Over time wearing incorrect bra sizes, not only lead to headaches and back pain, but can also cause your boobs to drop earlier than they usually would do in your older years. I don't know about you, but I am not about that saggy boob life just yet, and I want to keep mine as perky as I can, for as long as I can. 10 years down the line, when I'm (hopefully) hitting that 30 year milestone, I'd like to be able to have my boobs hanging at a reasonable height! 😂

3) It's Not as Scary as You Think...I feel like bra fittings have this misconception that they are carried out by intimidating, old ladies, with big glasses who get a little too touchy - feely during the fitting. It is absolutely nothing of the sort. The lady who fit me in Debenhams was friendly, knowledgable and although she was confident in what she was doing, she still had a sense of calm about her that helped to keep me relaxed.

4) Emotionally and Mentally Beneficial... I never actually realised the difference that wearing the correct fitting bra can make to how you feel emotionally and mentally. Since getting my bra fit, I have felt so much more confident and relaxed when it comes to getting dressed up and going out. Wearing the correct fitting bra, improves your posture and provides you with the support your boobs require, which in turn will help you walk taller and feel stronger! :)

5) The Bulging Boob...I think we've all been there... As a teenager, I always wore bras way too small for me and thus ended up with the bulging boob effect A.K.A having my boobs quite literally spill out from my bra, because they had nowhere else to go - double boobage anyone? If like me, you find yourself suffering from the double boob effect, go and give a bra fitting a go. With the right fitting, you'll have the right bra and with the right bra, you'll be able to kick some butt!

And now onto the fun part of the post. As I mentioned previously in this post here, I am working with Debenhams on their bra fit campaign, which is all about getting the nations boobies into the right fitting bras - because honestly there are a lot of us who are in the wrong size bras and we don't even know it (8 out of 10 women - to be exact!). Debenhams actually recommend women to try to get a bra fitting done every 6 months to ensure that we are always wearing the correct size bra to support our breasts. If you haven't had one recently, you can head on down to Debenhams, where they carry out professional bra fittings for their customers!

5 Reasons to Get A Bra Fitting, Debenhams gorgeous red bra and brief,

Today I am giving you lovely people the chance to win a choice of not one, but two pretty lace bras for yourself. Just keep on reading to find out how...

The first bra that you will have a chance to win is the *Triumph 'Modern Bloom' bra. This bra, like so many lace bras, has the amazing ability to make me go all heart eyed and bushy tailed in it's pretty lace presence. The entire bra has been made entirely using lace and it is covered using floral embroidery.

I'm a bit hit and miss on the fit of this bra, in terms of cup fit, where it is lined, it is nice and fitted. However, the lace edges of the cups which are unlined, sit a little more loosely than I would've liked, and actually bunch up slightly when I lean forwards. I have tried adjusting the straps, which helped slightly, but it still did not fit as snug as I would've like it to. Apart from this, the rest of the fit of the bra is perfect. It includes adjustable straps and a sturdy under wiring for extra support.

In addition to the loose fit of the grey trim, I also am not so hot on the shade of grey that has been used for the contrasting trim. Now don't get me wrong, I am all about that grey life, I love the colour grey. I just feel like the shade that has been used here, gives the bra a dull appearance, which is quite the opposite to what it's lace material is doing. This, I think is more a matter of my own personal preference and I'm sure others will be able to appreciate this accented grey shade.

Moving on to bra number two: The *'Triumph Black Amourette 300 Bra' This is definitely my favourite bra of both the bras in this giveaway. Again, just like the previous bra, it is an all over, lace, beauty. And it's colour is completely black, all over the bra, which is definitely much more to my liking. However if you are not a fan of the all black look, it is also available in white, cream and dark cream.

Again like the first, this bra lacks padding, however I find that there is a lot more lace coverage on the cups to be able to cover up your modesty (if you know what I'm saying 😜). Due to it's lack of padding and lining, I wouldn't say that this was a bra made for a day of high activity, as your boobs will shake about quite a bit. However, on the contrary, the under wiring, similar to the 'Modern Bloom Bra' is brilliant and provides support where you need it the most! Where the lack of padding fails on support, it is compensated for, in it's under wiring.

The bra has got an all black lace aesthetic going on, which definitely gives it an air of sophistication and S-A-S-S like no other. It really is so pretty, and it can be worn underneath a sheer shirt for a brave daytime look in the summer or underneath a crotchet crop top for a sassy night look!
