Curvy Girl OOTD 26- NYC Edition!

Hello My Lovelies

Recently I was in New York and I couldn't resist taking some photographs of the outfit I was wearing that day and then I thought well I had better share it with you all!


We spent an unseasonably warm New York October day walking along the Brooklyn bridge- I'm so glad we got to visit here as I didn't on my last trip, it's such an amazing bridge- all I wanted to do was take photographs. Here I am wearing my H&M NYC t-shirt, a mixed denim skirt that I bought in the Sainsbury's sale just before I went away and reminds me a lot of something that I would of worn when I was at uni in 2002! 

We also walked around the World Trade Centre area and this was taken just around the corner from the 9/11 museums. On this day I was also wearing the most comfortable and affordable (since when did leggings become so expensive) from Matalan and then to keep my feet extra comfy I bought before my trip some new trainers from Sketchers. Sketcher trainers are by far the most bouncy, snug footwear- I wore these every day walking miles and miles around the city and not once did they feel uncomfortable or did I look forward to taking them off at the end of the day.

Finally the finishing touch to all of my outfits on this trip was my trusty Gucci handbag, I've had this bag for 18 months and its the only bag I've used during this time- I feel the high price tag has been justified due to amount of wear it's getting.

What have been your go to outfits recently? Have you been to NYC? Let me know in the comments or on twitter @steaders83.

Till next time,

Soap & Glory Glow Ball- Christmas 2017!

Hello My Lovelies

We've officially had Halloween and Fireworks night which in my book makes it just fine to discuss the 'C' word, Yes! I'm talking about Christmas a mere few weeks away now really!! With Christmas just around the corner the shops are now starting to fill up with gifts and the lovely lot at Soap & Glory have as always some of the best gifts.

The Glow Ball is the most epic gift set I've seen in a while, to start HELLO! the packaging is a huge bauble and when you crack it open you won't be disappointed with a range of products that will keep you happy and relaxed this season!

Full of the best products from the brand including hand food (er yes it's winter and my hand's needs some extra tender loving care) or Foamous shower and body wash or even a mini Smoothie Star body buttercream that smells absolutely divine, you won't be disappointed! I loved the addition of a pink shower puff as I love these and they always look so cute hanging in the shower. 

Priced at £14.00 in Boots and currently in their 3 for 2 across Christmas gifts it the perfect present for you and two of your mates (or maybe just you!) Soap & Glory have some amazing sets this year to suit all budgets starting at just £5.00!
I especially like to keep my eye on the star buy at Boots in December when usually you can pick up a huge set from Soap & Glory for an epic price and rammed with full size products. They usually sell out fast so make sure you're first in the door when your Boots opens!


Have you got your eye on any of the #glamtidings gifts from Soap & Glory this year? Let me know below in the comments and over on my Instagram @wonderfulworldblog.

Till next time,

New York Haul!

Hello My Lovelies

I've just got back from the best trip to NYC and I couldn't not go there and do a spot of shopping! Read on to see all of the bits and bobs that I picked up in Sephora and Target....


In Sephora it looks like I went on a bit of a grey themed product hunt but it was just by pure accident that they are almost in grey packaging! I've had the Sephora face wipes before when I picked these up earlier in the year in Denmark so I stocked up on two more packets when I visited. I also saw when I was in the queue for the till that they sell nose strips too so I grabbed a couple of those to try. Also on my list to purchase was another of the Sephora face masks in travel size packaging- again I have one of these in the blue clay that I bought in France during the summer and I knew that I wanted to try another out when I visited NYC.

I could of bought my Anastasia Brow Wiz pencil online in the U.K but I held out till I visited the states to grab another, it also gave me the opportunity to get some Sephora points! Finally a new item to my stash and from a brand I've never used before is a Tarte blush in the shade captivating, a really pretty dark pink that gives the perfect glow to my skin.

I think I was really reserved in my purchases from Sephora this time round, this might of been because I had already been twice this year and so the excitement levels weren't as high but I still loved perusing the ultimate beauty shop in the world! I'm off to Munich in a couple of weeks and I've just noticed they have one there so I'm sure I'll have to pop in for a few bits then too!
Next up it was time to track down some sweeties and funny flavoured Oreo's for family and friends back home. Target is starting to open smaller stores in big cities and I was excited to see that they had just opened one in NYC. I popped in and grabbed some Oreo's in coconut which I can confirm are delicious and some winter ones which don't have a different taste just the colour icing is red instead of white. Unfortunately the Target in NYC didn't have any other flavours which was a bit annoying as I was after Halloween pumpkin spice and firework flavoured ones.
I also grabbed lots of different flavour M&M's as I'm a bit of a fan, I can't wait to try the strawberry peanut ones! Also in my basket was some Laffy Taffy, Swedish Fish, Hi-Chew and some cookies!

And... that was everything that I bought in NYC (other than a couple of candles from Bath and Body Works for friends Christmas presents!)

Have you been to America recently? What did you desperately want to pick up that you can't get in the U.K? Let me know in the comments and on twitter @steaders83.

Till next time,
