 3-your outfit of the day?
 Newlook top and Skirt from new company 

 4- you recently won best fashion blog at the plus size awards! how do you feel on wining the award?
 I feel amazing, it's honestly my proudest achievement so far. I didn't even know about the Awards until I was shortlisted so it was a huge surprise and honour. I can't thank everyone enough.

 5- whats your ideal valentines date?
 Well I did think I was spending Valentine's Day alone with a tub of Ben and Jerrys, but it turns out I have plans with a hot date and a weekend away in York planned! I do love weekends away, especially in a romantic city.

 6- whats your valentines day look/outfit (pictures)
 Depending on where I'm going, it's always going to be lacy but I think I'm going to wear my dress by Scarlet and Jo.

 7-your hair is amazing! how do you keep your hair looking so stylish everyday?
 I won't lie, I make an awful lot of effort with it, but I love my hair. It's dyed probably every two weeks, washed a couple times a week with everything colour protecting, and I use hair oils everyday.

 8- what advise would you give to other bloggers to achieve an award like yours?
 Don't actually aim to win an award, instead aim to be the best you can possibly be. There's no point in forcing out content, but if you want to write and you love it, do it as much as you can.

 9- scarlett and jo are bringing a dress out that has been designed for you! how exciting! could you tell us a little more about this project? (pictures of the dress if possible)
 After meeting designer Gifi they day after the Plus Size Awards, he said he was going to design a blue lace dress for me because to him I am the 'Queen of Lace.' Never in my wildest dreams did I expect to be asked to model the collection, which also featured other dresses designed for my fellow plus size bloggers and friends. The day was absolutely incredible and you'll be seeing more photos very soon!

 10- what are you top tips in fashion?
 You don't have to follow the trends to be fashionable, find out what you feel comfortable and look sexy in, then go from there and experiment.

 11-what made you start writing a blog?
 I love writing, I always wanted to be a Lawyer and then an English Teacher, but my love for beauty took over. Now it means I can write until my heart is content on all things fashion and beauty, it was and is perfect for me.

 12-if you could collaborate with any designer who would it be?
 I'd definitely love to collaborate with Gifi Fields from Scarlett and Jo, I know I kind of have this time, but they seem to be one of the only Plus Size Brands that really comprehend plus size women and what they want. They know how to create clothes that make you feel amazing and I love that about them and Gifi.

hope you enjoyed the read for more on Georgina head to :

How to Declutter your Home and Keep it that Way

Time to declutter What helps me destress, be productive and keep myself organised is getting rid of all the bits and bobs i keep laying around the house. Yes, that drawer full of crap and all the kids toys that keep mounting up after Christmas and birthdays. I start with 4 bags; charity, selling, friends/family and bin. You don't have to do all of these in one day, pick a room or an area for one afternoon while the baby sleeps and the toddler is settled with snacks and a colouring book and get busy. *Rooms* Bathroom- the cabinets, products you dont use or are out of date, bath toys, etc... Kitchen- food packaging, out of date products, pots and pans you don't use or need to replace Living room- the mounting of paper work hidden in drawers, kids toys, shoes, etc... Dining room- ( same as above) Bedroom- clothes you don't wear, brought but never used, old bed, bedroom drawers and tables, worn out shoes (good quality shoes can be repaired fairly cheaply s

Money saving Hacks | Christmas | 2020 edition |

It's that time of the year...   Remembering all the kids Christmas activities, nursery and school nativity plays, Christmas gift shopping, scheduling friends and family to come over during the holidays, teacher gifts, phonics, cooking the Turkey....   1- Plan Christmas a year to 6 months in advance  I know this sounds nuts but honestly knowing what is happening and who you're visiting makes it a lot easier and less stressful.  2- Buy gifts in the boxing day and January sales. Buy and stock up throughout the year on all the sales. It's amazing how much money you can save by doing this. I manage to save up to £200/£300 by doing this each year.  3- The things you don't think of buying in those sales. Wrapping paper, christmas cards, tape, gift tags, gift bags, Christmas arts and crafts for the kids, stickers, advent calendars (the non-chocolate ones) I brought the Harry Potter charms bracelet advent calendar and frozen 2 advent calendar in Sainsburys

5 creative ways to make extra money

1- sell unwanted items Is it time to do a clear out? Need a little extra money? Sell those trousers you've not worn in 3 months and sell the dress you've only worn twice.  Make sure all items are washed, no marks and no rips etc... these are all things that will help you in the selling process. Take lots of photos of the items, compare on other selling sites to make sure you check out your competitors. Good places to sell are facebook pages, Ebay, depop, Amazon, car boot sale and friends or family  2- creative skills  Are you creative with woodwork, clay, jewellery making, etc... if so put these hobbies into a place online and sell them! Don't forget to charge for materials, hours per day, time to take photos and uploading,etc. 3- teach another language  If you have a second language then good on you, another skill to write down on your cv! Launch a new website of what you can provide, zoom language classes, work sheets, online courses, etc. Make it clear on what you can pr
