The Pocket Rocket, or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying and Love the Blog

And just how many blogs have begun with that particular pun, I wonder? Oh well. I’m here now, and that’s what counts I suppose! So… hello. I’m Lauren. I’m 25, I like cardigans, prom dresses and sci-fi. Usually at the same time. I live a little outside London, UK, which is nice. I’ve decided to finally take the plunge and start a little plus fashion blog!

Adding yet another plus size blog from my small corner or the globe has been on my agenda for a while, but laziness and shyness have usually prevailed until now. I’m not intending to keep up with the big guns or anything like that, but I’m looking forward to having a space that I can use to share my thoughts on all things fashion-plus. Especially now that more and more opportunities appear to be filtering through for us – what with the much-blogged Beth Ditto for Evans collection and the odd on trend pieces finding their way into stores such as Yours and Simply Be. Baby steps, but steps nonetheless, and that’s all the matters!
