Shopping as a plus size woman isn’t always fun. Being looked down at from staff, squeezing into cute dresses a little too tight (as they just wouldn’t come in a larger size), in changing rooms barely the size of a shoebox. I am not judging, I’ve been here myself for most of my life (and although I have lost some weight, I am still far from a size 0 model). Obviously, there is always the option of online shopping, allowing you to try it all on in the privacy of your own home. But what if you actually love browsing shops and seeing what’s on offer before buying? After all, London is perfect for shopping. Well, good thing I’ve got you covered. So, if you are heading to London anytime soon and fancy shopping in London as a plus size, I have compiled for you the best shopping places in London for plus size women.

For me 1st November marks the turning point between ‘It’s far too early to think about Christmas’ to ‘Oh gosh, how can it be November already? Time’s ticking’… let’s officially kick off the season and start the Christmas cheer… NOW. Time to get all presents sorted and cookies baked. So let me tell you about London at Christmas time. In case you are planning a pre Christmas trip to London this year (although, if you do, please check the current travel restrictions).
Needless to say (but I will say it anyway) London is a travel destination all year round, but visiting London in the run up to Christmas feels extra special and an experience plenty of people seek every year.
To help you make the most of your pre Christmas trip to London, I’ve put together a little collection of things to do and see to get your Christmas spirits up.
I am not a big fashionista, but I love to shop. And can do so for hours, given the chance and in the right company. So it might not come as a big surprise that I had to go and explore the shops on offer here in Rome. And put together this handy shopping guide to Rome.
There is no shortage of shops obviously. Handbags, shoes and small leather goods come in plenty. So do the various designers.
After London New York City is my second favourite city in the world (can you tell I’m a city girl at heart? Who would have guessed I grew up in the countryside)
First time we went to New York was for our honeymoon. A long trip with the intention to see it all and tick it off the bucket list once and for all. Little did I know this was just the start of an ongoing romance.
We’ve since been back twice and I can’t wait for the next time (Christmas shopping in New York would probably be next on my bucket list)
There is a lot to see and do in New York, so today I share my personal Top 5 things to do in New York City with you
I have to admit it… not all my travel is work related. I do also travel for leisure… and absolutely love weekends away.
For a good two years I had regular trips to Austria (for work) and absolutely fell in love with Vienna. Before that I have only ever been to Vienna (and Austria for this matter) once, which was a good 15 years ago, maybe even longer.
But since my regular Austria trips have seized recently, every excuse will do to come back.
So when it came to choosing a location for a girly catch up with my friend, we very quickly opted for Vienna.
After all, what’s not to love about Vienna if you are a pair of coffee loving shopping addicts?
