Natty Nikki Plus Size Blogger

Plus size blogger and vlogger

Saturday, 9 December 2017

Hello.......

Well it's been awhile since I last blogged and you may have been wondering where I am (or maybe you weren't bothered- I wouldn't blame you if you weren't).

The truth of the matter is my time has been taken up a combination of my actual proper day job, studying for a jewellery related qualification and general life stuff which meant something had to give so sadly it was the blog!

So what have I been doing since we last spoke, well apart from working, studying and joining a mixed martial arts gym not much! Yes you read that right I have joined an MMA gym but that is a post for another day!

Anyway I'm sure most of you are here for the fashion and I will be honest that after what has felt like a few months in the wilderness and losing not only my mojo but also some of my confidence in the last month I have regained a sense of self so bought a new dress for my works Christmas party.

Disclaimer some of these photos were taken at my work place in the staff room before we went out!!






I nabbed this dress from Boohoo for the decent price of £22 and I am so pleased with it, I did pop a camisole on underneath from Primark as where the dress wraps over it was quite low and draped open when I sat down! I also treated myself to my first ever Scantilly bra from Curvy Kate in the black Friday sales and you can see some of the strap details under the dress. I was going to wear some shape-wear to try and smooth out my VBO but in the end I decided sod it there is nowt wrong with my VBO so ditched the shape-wear and got on with it!

I had a fantastic night out we went to a pub called The Church, the food was great and the DJ played so many indie songs that I felt like I was a student again!

Sadly this dress is no longer online but there still lots of velvety dresses to be had!

Also huge thanks to Scantilly for finally making a bra that doesn't look like scaffolding but please consider expanding your sizes as I have had to squeeze into a 38HH which is slightly small in the cup but worth it for how the bra fits!

Hopefully I should be back soon and I intend to talk about being plus size and going to the gym!

Stay tuned!

Outfit August 2017 Day Twenty Five



Hello and welcome to Day 25 of Outfit August which means we have reached the end of yet another week and the end of August is getting near!!

Fridays in my office are usually a dress down day although to be fair we are never suited and booted in our office!





This was my outfit of choice, a New Look Curves top from last year and my old Simply Be Jeans which are the most high waisted jeans I have ever owned!! 

I am pleased to say I think my mojo is slowly returning and this outfit made me feel great yesterday (so much so that I wore it again today!!), the top is bright and colourful and got me out of the funk I seem to have been in. 

I think it also helps that the sun has returned and I have a lovely long bank holiday weekend to enjoy!

I hope you all have a lovely Bank Holiday weekend and that wherever you are the sun is shining!

Outfit August 2017 Day Twenty Three


Apologies but I am a day behind due to suffering a cluster of migraines this week which have knocked me about- but fingers crossed I am feeling better so hopefully I am on the other side!

Day 23's outfit is a lovely dress from Navabi which I chose last year after winning a giveaway!

Whenever I wear this dress to work everyone comments on it, and I always feel rather swish!




This is the only 'proper' wrap dress I actually own which isn't stitched together down the skirt, so it is all swishy when you walk and in the humid weather it allows the air to circulate!

I must admit that normally Navabi are a bit beyond my budget but I do appreciate their clothing and the fact that there is actually a retailer offering high end pieces in plus sizes. This dress is well made and quite heavy and for me is a piece that will stay in my wardrobe for many years to come.

Outfit August 2017 Day Twenty One



Well I'm on a roll two outfit posts in two days- yes I'm just as surprised as you are!!! The dress I have today I don't think I have shared on the blog before, I bought it from Becky (Does My Blog Make Me Look Fat) last year when she was having an epic clear out.






Given how I rubbish I have been feeling of late it was rather nice to put this dress on today for work and like the reflection in the mirror, hence the spam of photos!

This is a Modcloth Bea and Dot dress which when it comes to Modcloth I think Bea and Dot are my favourite as I find they fit well and are made to last.

My shoes are from Primark and were a lucky find on the end of an aisle all on their own so I grabbed them and gave them a loving home!

Hopefully this is the start of me feeling a bit better and fingers crossed I will be back again this week with more outfits.

In the meantime don't forget to check out the other ladies

Outfit August 2017 Day Twenty



Hello and apologies for the radio silence, after getting off to such a good start I suffered a confidence wobble, and this unfortunately led me to not wanting to blog.
