Perfect pamper day

(Kylpyläreissu ja illallinen saatu yhteistyössä Entertainer App:in kanssa, ja koska kyseessä on Lontoon applikaatio, jätin käännöksen tekemättä.)

A couple of weeks ago Mayah and I got a lovely invite for a spa day and dinner from The Entertainer App, and there was no way we would have turned that down. Both of us have been needing relaxation and pampering, so this was the perfect invitation.

We started the day at Spa Verta in Battersea, where we were booked for half an hour massages. The relaxation area where we waited was gorgeous and calming, and we got to enjoy delicious coffees – as we simply can’t function without coffees in the morning haha.

I haven’t had a massage in yeeeeeeeears, and if you are a long time reader, you might remember I had a shoulder injury… so there was a bit of worry in my excitement. My therapist was lovely though, and I wish the treatment would have been longer!

After the massages we had access to the spa area, and spent hours between 3 saunas (Finnish sauna, sanarium and steam room) and the hydrotherapy pool enjoying the jacuzzi jets. Seriously I loved this so much, I wish I could go every week! Mayah and I keep talking about the day though, so I’m sure we’ll go back soon.

After the spa day we got to go for dinner at the Soho Indian restaurant, The Red Fort. I loved the dark red and black decor from the second we walked in. We picked a nice South African white wine (that ended up being a GREAT choice) and hit the menu.

I went with murgh seekh for starter, which was spiced roasted minced chicken skewers with ginger, garlic, coriander and cumin. I ate them with the mango chutney and they were lovely, but very spicy. (Haha, I might have gotten my face all sweaty because of that.) And for my main I got murgh malai, which was chicken tikka pieces marinated with cardamom with rice and naan.

My favourite part of the dinner was the dessert though – that rich chocolate mousse was aaaaaamazing! Also a bar called Zenna is located in the basement of The Red Fort, so that is a perfect place for those after dinner drinks.

All in all the day was just what Mayah and I needed, and if you want to do something similar with your best friend – The Entertainer App is full of great 2 for 1 deals that get you all the pampering and entertainment you and your bestie could want for half the price!

End of year sales wishlist

Every year ends with massive sales, and this year is no different. I have done a bit of sale shopping, but there are still a lot of things on my wishlist that I’m lusting after. Thankfully sites like Love The Sales helps compiling it all, as you can browse all the sales under one site. So here’s a few things that I’m coveting…


Joka vuosi loppuu järjettömiin alennusmyynteihin, ja tämä vuosi ei ole poikkeus. Olen itsekin sortunut shoppailemaan hiukan, mutta toivelistallani on edelleen paljon juttuja joita himoitsen. Sivustot kuten Love The Sales auttaa tällaisessa tilanteessa, kun voit selata kaikkia aleja yhden sivuston alla. Joten tässäpä jokunen juttu listaltani…

Introducing: Pink Clubwear

(Tämä on yhteistyö amerikkalaisen Pink Clubwearin kanssa, ja tullimaksujen yms takia en viitsi tehdä käännöstä, mutta toivottavasti tykkäätte asusta!)

As a plus-size woman it’s always nice to hear about plus-size brands that are new to you. I was contacted by Pink Clubwear a few weeks ago, and I was intrigued to see what they offer. Pink Clubwear is an online shop that caters both main range and plus-sizes, and like its name says, most of their stock is sexy clubwear. Now, my clubbing years are definitely over, so I wasn’t sure if they had anything suitable for my style. However their plus range has over 300 items, and alongside the clubwear they also have more casual stuff. Their plus-sizes are junior plus: 1X (about US 14 / UK 18 / EU 46), 2X (about US 16 / UK 20 / EU 48) and 3X (about US 18 / UK 22 / EU 50), and they are actually using models that are plus-sized – like you can see on their site.

My favourite item of them all was this striped dress, mostly because it can easily be dressed up or down, and it just spoke to the monochrome lover in me ;). Below you can see how I styled it with a biker jacket and white chunky shoes. My other favourites are for example this jumpsuit and this funky top (would love it in white).

So, especially my US readers.. If you want to give Pink Clubwear a try, you can get 30% off your order with code ‘Hanna30‘ – which is an amazing discount!

Biker jacket / Takki*: M, Junarose | Dress / Mekko*: 3X, Pink Clubwear | Tights / Sukkahousut: 22-26, Yours Clothing | Shoes / Kengät: New Look (similar) | Necklace / Kaulakoru*: Freedom at Topshop (similar) | Lipstick / Huulipuna*: Maybelline Color Sensational Rebel Bouquet Lipstick in Ravishing Rose

Grids in Co-ords

(Suomeksi alla)

I spoke about the new Missguided + collection in my last post, and mentioned that I have another Missguided outfit to post. I decided to wear this grid print crop top and skirt for a coffee date that I had this morning with a dear friend. I wore it with a biker jacket, a fedora and a pair of black slip-ons. I’m so excited that Missguided have added these co-ords to their collection, as they are quite hard to find in plus-size fashion. This set is comfy jersey, and the cut is generous. (I wouldn’t size down on this though, as the fabric goes ‘white’ if it stretches – wouldn’t recommend this to anyone over size 24-26 because of this reason.)

How do you feel about this set of co-ords? Excited about Missguided +? Please note that you can still get 10% off the collection with code PLUS10 until 27th November!

Jacket / Takki*: M, Junarose – sample (similar) | Top / Paita*: 24, Missguided + | Skirt / Hame*: 24, Missguided + | Shoes / Kengät: Primark (similar) | Hat / Hattu: New Look | Bag / Laukku: F&F (similar) | Lipstick / Huulipuna: Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Finish Matte Lipstick in 110

Puhuin edellisessä postauksessani uudesta plussamallistosta nimeltä Missguided +, ja mainitsin, että mulla on vielä toinen asu heiltä postattavana. Mulla oli aamulla kahvideitit ystäväni kanssa, ja päätin pukeutua tähän napapaita ja hame yhdistelmään. Lisäsin asuun biker-takin, fedoran ja mustat slip-onit. Olen innoissani, että Missguidedin mallistossa on mukana näitä yhteensopivia ylä- ja alaosia, sillä näitä on kyllä plussamuodissa vaikea löytää. Tämä setti on mukavaa trikoo-matskua, ja koot on reiluja. (En silti ottaisi näistä normikokoa pienempää, sillä musta osa kankaasta menee ‘valkoiseksi’, kun kangas venyy – tästä syystä en siis suosittelisi tätä settiä kenellekkään kokoa 52-54 suuremmalle.)

Millaisia fiiliksiä teillä on Missguided + mallistosta? Entäpä tällaisista yhteensopivista seteistä yleensäkin? Muistakaahan, että mallistosta saa 10% pois koodilla PLUS10 27.11 asti – ja postikulut Suomeen on vain 5€!
