Bronzais Collab: Celestial Choker (+ Discount Code!)


Disclaimer: Promoter collab. All opinions are my own. 

Yo! So I collabed with Bronzais who basically sell all things glam for bad bitches like me ;) Nah I kid, but I honestly did LOVE the Celestial choker they sent me. 

Not only does it sparkle like hell, I was also impressed with the quality. I've bought chokers before that have broke or don't fit well but this one was perfect. It really is a statement piece and it looks a lot more expensive than it actually is which is always a plus.

If you're interested, you can shop online & get a cheeky discount with my code MANITA10

London Fashion Week AW17: What I Wore


Hey guys!

So I know this is incredibly late... is it okay to still blame it on being a final year student? Probably not. In any case, here is what I wore at LFW! 

I was so happy to be featured by Style & Curve magazine, where the following pic recieved over 3000+ likes! I was overwhelmed with all the comments and praise but I'm oh so grateful. I think it just goes to show that people really are striving to see diversity in the fashion industry, particularly at LFW. Although we've come a long way, most high-end designers are still yet to appreciate plus-size models... 

That won't stop me though! Nor will it stop all the other fabulous curvy bloggers! Let's all remember that whatever size we are, we all deserve to slay, slay slay!

Aisle Style: Your New Go-To Dress Site!

Disclaimer: Sponsored post. All opinions are truthful and my own.

We all know how difficult it can be to shop for an occasion right? I mean, I remember my freaking year 11 prom (which was a shitshow in itself) but I spent ages going from store to store trying to find a dress that had that wow-factor. It's fair to say it took a damn long time.

Now, there's no need to run around from store to store when you have the likes of Aisle Style at your fingertips. The site features wedding dresses, prom dresses, evening dresses... you name it.

You have the option of using custom sizing which means less stress for you as we've all had that experience of purchasing a beauty online, only for it to come and it looks like a bin bag. Luckily, you won't have that issue here as Aisle Style have your needs taken care of.

The designs in general are very elegant and sophisticated, perfect for an upscale woman with class. With the likes of beading, hand ruching and appliques, the detail is absolutely exceptional for the prices you pay.

This beautiful off-the-shoulder piece is perfect for anyone looking for lace wedding dresses.
This stunning lace trimmed gown is exceptional for £179.99. I guess cheap wedding dresses do exist!
It's the 21st century people! Why not embrace short wedding dresses if you're brave enough! I know damn well my future husband would look at me in awe if I walked down the aisle in this showstopper.

SwimClassy Collab: Athens Coverup PLUS 25% off Code!

Hey lovelies!

So you might have seen on Instagram that I've partnered up with SwimClassy as a promoter! When they reached out I was super excited because they are totally against editing pics in order to support the body positive movement. It's so reassuring to see brands like SwimClassy actually caring about this as let's be honest, it's a topic that definitely gets left out with most major lines.

With the image below I edited the lighting but what you see is what you get :)

Credits: Kam Luo
Here I styled the gorgeous 'ATHENS' coverup which was a beautiful gold mesh material. It's perfect to wear at the beach over a swimsuit or you could even wear it formally if wore a slip underneath. As you can see, it screams Greek Goddess... I'll admit, once you have a piece like this on Beyonce's 'Formation' automatically starts playing in your head and you may just have to dance around screaming 'I slay, I slay, all day' ;) (just a warning).

So if you like the look of this piece why not check out the site and today's your lucky day... I have an exclusive discount code where you can get 25% off absolutely anything!!! 

Use MANITA25 to get some money off. At least you won't feel as guilty, eh?

Strut with Stella: Want to Win 2 Tickets?!


So ya'll know how important it is to me to promote body confidence right? Every woman deserves to look and feel good about herself... no matter what! Can I get an amen?! 

Okay so if you're sitting at home with your cuppa cheering at the screen, I've got something super exciting to share with you...

Strut with Stella is a workshop designed by fabulous actress/performer, Stella Pecollo. It's basically all about empowerment... inspiring anyone and everyone to feel confident about themselves. In just one session, you'll explore a bunch of exciting topics including yoga, nutrition and you might even learn a thang or two about makeup and fashion (whoop whoop!) 

I absolutely love the sound of this and I can't wait to get more involved with the Strut by Stella project because as a student/curve influencer I'm all about promoting positive movements that genuinely want to help others with their self-esteem and self-worth as opposed to changing who they truly are. For me personally, I view myself as a child of God and with that I have to accept myself with all the good and bad parts included. I think everybody deserves to experience this self-acceptance and confidence because life is too short to dwell on things we can't change or even if we can change them, why not work on them? Let's not mope around, let's get out there and build ourselves up to becoming the powerful individuals we know we can be! 


Sound good? Well today's your lucky day...

If you want the chance to WIN two tickets to the first London workshop, simply do the following:

1) LIKE the Stella Pecollo Facebook page
2) Post an original selfie with Stella's pic in the background. Make sure you use the hashtag #StrutWithStella and tag the page. The funniest selfie will win!

Competition ends on the 28th of Feb so hurry!

Dresslland Boutique Plus Collection: Brown Ribbed Bodycon

Disclaimer: Product sent out for review purposes. All opinions are truthful.

Hey everyone! 

So today I'm here to tell you something really, really exciting! I'm proud to now be a face for Dresslland's Plus collection! When I heard about their range, I knew it was something I wanted to be a part of because as a student, I am always about supporting affordable collections. I also really appreciate the fact that they don't charge a premium on the plus range as many other brands do. I think this is so important because curvier women should not have to pay more to slay! 

If you like to shop on a budget, definitely do check out their site as they have a wide variety of styles, whether you're plus size or not. Here, I styled their Ribbed Off The Shoulder Dress which is only £18.99! I can honestly say that the material was lovely and it hugged my figure comfortably. The length is also great as it's long enough to wear to formal events or you can throw on some heels and wear it out clubbing. Such a versatile option. 

Do let me know what you guys think of this look! xoxo

HelpMeOrganics: Bedtime Candle Review

Disclaimer: Product sent out for review purposes, all opinions are my own and truthful.

Hi everyone! 

Today I'm going to share with you a lovely nightime treat that can help you to transform your bedtime routine. If you've been following me on social media for a while, you might be aware that I have suffered from sleep problems for a very long time. At one point, my sleep issues were so bad that I was put on sleeping pills and that was honestly a horrific experience... Today, I manage my sleep issues with natural remedies such as Serotone 5HTP tablets. It's also super important to create a peaceful environment around me in order to relax...

For me, candles make a lovely addition to any home and I truly believe that aromas can be very powerful in stimulating different moods. This 'Help Me It's Way Past My Bedtime' candle (how cute is the name) from HelpMeOrganics was the perfect pick to settle me into bed tonight, especially since I've been down with the flu so needed something extra special. 


Combining ginger, melissa leaf, eucalyptus and lavender, this candle's scent is so soothing. I kept it at a bit of a distance from my bed but it was still powerful enough to scent the whole room. I think this would make the perfect gift if you have a friend or a partner who struggles with their sleep because it not only smells great, but it's also organic, vegan friendly and paraben free. In today's day and age, more and more people are becoming aware of the dangers of parabens (including myself) so I definitely appreciate HelpMeOrganics' formula.

At £9.50 it's also pretty affordable, especially if you're a student like me. Don't take my word for it though, try one out for yourself and let me know how you get on! Use CODE: Manita10 at checkout for 10% off yours! xoxo
