    Hey everyone, I'm back with another blog with OOTDs and some thoughts on fast fashion and shopping ethically as a plus sized person.  I'm compiling a list of various ethical and/or sustainable plus sized clothing brands too.  So if you folks know of any let me know and I'll add them to the list.  Also there's some final bits of my Gwynnie Bee review.  Here's the blog post - http://lydiadickson.blogspot.com/2015/08/thoughts-on-fast-fashion.htmlAnd here's one of my recent outfits (more on my blog!):Kimono - ASOS, top - City Chic, Necklace - Amber…

    Hey folks,It's me again!  This week I've been prepping my capsule wadrobe for fall. - A capsule wardrobe is a planned set of seasonal clothes (usually 30-37 pieces per season), that helps you focus on your personal style, not overspending, wearing all of what you own regularly, and getting rid of clothes that don't fit or work well for you.  In the end there's less fuss when you get dressed each day because things work well together, you can experiment more knowing things will pair well together.  It also clears out space if like me you end up with more than you…

    Most heart disease occurs in healthy people without traditional risk factors and who aren’t considered to be at risk. That has led healthy people without symptoms to feel vulnerable to this ‘silent killer’ and seek ways to see if they could be at risk. The biggest growth industry of preventive health screenings are tests for an array of “emerging” cardiac risk factors. While these tests are
