The Return

Hello Curves Become Her family!

My apologies for taking such a long break from the blog, life had thrown a few curveballs and my attention was diverted for a good few months. I hope this return signifies being back to blogging on a more permanent basis.

To summarise whats being going on: My knee and back were still hurting a fair bit so I underwent an MRI to determine what was going on and changed physiotherapist. Progress is slow but there definitely has been progress. My lower back has some degeneration that’s been happening since I was 11 and the pain has gotten increasingly difficult to live with.

There was also a full month of dealing with a lot of trolls on Instagram that upped my nerves. Also, if you remember I had a brood of 5 pets – sadly we lost our oldest dog Hershey and its been a month since he passed away. We miss him so very much.

With a sort of blank slate after everything that transpired, I encouraged myself to start posting on the blog again so here we are 🙂

This look was slated for Spring but life was much too hectic then so its a season late but no matter. Here goes :

Dress – ASOS Curve (UK 20), Earrings – ASOS, Sandals – Hush Puppies

This specific style is refreshingly new on me, with ruched sides at the bottom but what really caught my eye were the prints and that beautiful shade of canary yellow. Admittedly I was unsure of how I would feel in this dress because its both long sleeved and ruched at the sides but much to my surprise, I really like it!

The dress come with a slip and you do need that since the fabric is quite sheer. It sits lower almost at the hips which is interesting. But I do not go for what flatters my silhouette – its whether I like it that counts – the feel of the fabric and its quality is what I go for.

This would be the perfect high tea dress, or for attending a Spring wedding even. Its not too dressy and is rather classy. Definitely more of a sunny daytime look.

The fabric has a mesh-like quality to it but it is very comfortable to wear even under the blazing hot sun!

The Makeup

The injuries had me staying home bound more than I fancied but with that came more time to play with makeup and here is a little fruit of my labour hahaha!

I used the Kat Von D 10th anniversary eye shadow palette on the eyes, shame I mucked up with the eyeliner – it was not meant to be that thick! Ah butter fingers.. For lips I have on the Fenty Beauty (can you love that brand any more for revolutionising diversity with its foundation range??) Mattemoiselle lipstick in the shade Freckle Fiesta. Highlighter and blush are from Zoeva.

I hope you enjoy this look as much as I have enjoyed creating it, and we WILL chat real soon xxxo

This post is dedicated to our forever fur baby Hershey

One thought on “The Return

  1. So glad you’re back! I’m sorry to hear that you have had some difficult months but you are strong and I know you will emerge better than ever. And you look beautiful! This dress is so gorgeous and vibrant and you wear it so well. I love your comment about not caring if something is “flattering” or not, because I always heard that word when I was younger and I knew it was secret code for “you don’t look too fat.” Forget that nonsense! The colors and fit are perfect on you – oh, and I am in love with those earrings! Please just ignore the trolls – they will always be there but women of strength and character will always persevere and triumph. When a person is breaking new ground and opening doors, there will always be small minds who are threatened by boldness and daring. Thank you for this inspiring post and I am sending good thoughts and happiness your way!
