Spring Is Blooming...?

This is just a quick post to stop by, say Hi and share in some extreme confusion around what the heck the weather's doing.

Dress - Primark (Similar)
Sandals - Simply Be
When I took these pictures it was hot. Hence me wearing a floaty dress covered in flowers. Right now it is snowing. Hence me wearing my pyjamas.

Midi dresses are the way forward for me right now, the proportions seem to work well with my figure and they look great with trainers, sandals and ankle boots alike

The dress is from Primark so I can't link directly to it but Simply Be have a similar one here. The sandals are also Simply Be, I have them in three colours and they're SO comfortable it's ridiculous.

I'll be back with a longer post at the weekend but, until then, I hope the weather starts to perk up a bit where you are.

Sexual Happiness Day

Happy Sexual Happiness Day one and all. Did you know that's what today is? I had no idea but then why would I, it's not on my UK national holiday calendar. Yet. Anyway, I hope Father Sexmas came and filled your stockings with big juicy packages (REVOLTING)...

Sexual Happiness is epically subjective, it may be that sex all day every day is what makes you happy, it may be the occasional quick screw between shopping and cooking the tea, it may be that your sexual happiness comes from being comfortable with never having sex again. You can be a sexual person if you are fat, you can be a sexual person if you are thin, single, married, old, young, rich poor, ALL of the things that a person can be. You can also be someone who ISN'T sexual and there is nothing at all wrong with this, when it comes to sex and all things related I honestly think: Just do what suits you best (Consent and legality complying).

For me, the biggest turn on is firstly feeling good about myself - This doesn't mean that I look a certain way or am wearing a certain thing, it's more that I LIKE myself at that moment.  Secondly, being with someone who respects me, who thinks I'm hot and who actively wants to touch my parts with their parts (I should write erotic fiction...) seals the deal. If you want to know more about the act of sex itself in greater detail, I utterly love Lottie L'Amours post The Dirty Guide to Sex for Fat Girls. It's informative, honest and an incredibly good read.

Thank you Lovehoney for bringing this day to my attention, for reminding us that sexual happiness is important and for making me look smoking yet again!

All Wrapped Up With The Towel Shop

For a really, really long time my blog has consisted purely of fashion and opinion, because this is the stuff I know ya know. If ever an opportunity was to present itself in order to persuade me to diversify from this in any way whatsoever, lovely big towels were entirely the one. For the simple reason; When I'm not wearing clothes or having an opinion, I'm in the bath. So this is an incredibly relevant to my interests post. Second only maybe to "Tall men with large faces" and "Rum".

www.terribletumbles.co.uk
Extra Large Bath Towel* - The Towel Shop 
One of my mega issues throughout my entire life has been around the fit of everyday items most people take for granted: Tights, slippers, cycling helmets (Don't ask...) handbags and more often than anything: Towels. Whenever I stop in a hotel you can guarantee that the towel will reach to halfway down my ass with a great big gaping gap at the side. In Carry On films this is sexy (If not epically misogynistic) but on a 6ft tall half-blind woman who is slippery and cold, it's irritating and not at all cute. Trust me. 



This issue extends further; I love a good spa day, but while the other guests are encased in huge fluffy towelling robes, I'm there trying to cover my bits with something made for a woman two foot shorter than me and a good thirty inches narrower... That was until The Towel Shop came to my rescue. They have a have a range of towels, towelling robes and other luxury items designed for Plus Sized peoples and to prove their dedication to the chub life, they sent me a couple of gifts to slob about in.


First I tried out the 500GSM Egyptian cotton XL bath towel in cream. This measures in at 90 x 180cm and WRAPS ALL THE WAY ROUND ME. All the way round and then some more. It also well and truly covers my ass. Get in. It's lovely and soft and I can actually sit and dry my hair in it without it falling off or getting on my nerves. This towel is available in more colours but I went for cream because I wanted to pretend I was at a luxury hotel and not my in-laws bathroom with someone telling me to hurry up because they need a wee...


Next up was the Turkish Cotton Terry Towelling Bath Robe in XL. I have to be completely honest and say that this robe isn't as big as I'd hoped. With this said, it IS long and it does more than go round me, I just hoped for HUGE you know? The robe is soft but also absorbent (This is turning into a sanitary towel advert...) unlike some of the more trendy dressing gowns on the market and I've now earmarked this as my guest gown for when I stop at the in-laws because I spend a lot of time in their roll-top bath and can now avoid totally drenching the floor, stairs and everywhere else I go.

Towelling Robe* - The Towel Shop 
With a pack of four bath towels at only £31 I can sincerely recommend The Towel Shop, you'd pay a lot more than this on the high street for tiny towels of a much lower quality. My very own precious love Becky has also got something to say on this subject and she looks bloody good doing it so be sure to have a look at her post here.

Summer Casual With Navabi

I recently asked people on my Instagram page what they would like to see more of on Terrible Tumbles. In and amongst the "boobies", "bottoms" and "NOTHING" came the resounding answer of Plus size casual wear. Now I've never really seen myself as anything other than casual - Certainly not glam, but this got me thinking about what I really wear, particularly on those days when I'm just loitering about not doing much of anything. SO, with this in mind, here is my ultimate in Summer casual looks.

www.terribletumbles.co.uk
Shirt* - Marina Rinaldi Sport @ Navabi
Straight Leg Jeans - Evans
Wrap Detail Sandals - Simply Be
Tote Bag - Mango
Sunglasses - MONKI
A couple of months ago I fell in love with this printed shirt from Marina Rinaldi Sport. I watched the Navabi website like an absolute hawk for months on end to no avail. THEN THERE IT WAS. Except I had missed it and my size had been and gone. WELL DONE ME. But all was not lost! The incredible team at Navabi did some magical detective work and the next thing I know, the shirt was all mine. 

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

The shirt also comes in a navy but I'm a total sucker for green as you know. I'm well into the retro feel to the abstract heart print and the contrasting blue stripe detail at the edges, I've never had such a snazzy shirt. The side splits make it easy to wear either tucked in or loose meaning that so far, I've been able to wear it under a pinafore for work as well as with both black and blue jeans - It's a proper versatile high end item. As for sizing, this is the 18, a 16 would also have fit but the 18 is lovely and loose and looks SO flipping good tucked into jeans with the sleeves rolled up - Perfect for the warm weather we're having right now.

www.terribletumbles.co.uk

Tan accessories are my go-to all year round. Every time I try another colour or shade of brown, I'm like NAH NOT FOR ME THANKS. This Mango tote is a bit of a lifesaver right now in that I am epically disorganised and this bag is vast enough for me to empty all of my various other bags into. This means that it's currently 95% full of garbage but at least I haven't left my purse at home for at least three weeks... The sandals are Simply Be, size 9 and remarkably comfortable meaning that I will still happily class them as casual shoes despite the heels.

As casual looks go, this is one I love. It's cool, light, versatile but still just dressy enough to stop me breaking out in a rash....
