Plus Size Swimwear River Island WhatLauraLoves

This week I took my bestie to Seaham Hall for a Twilight Spa to celebrate her birthday.  We had a lovely evening just chilling out in the various hydro pools and dining in their restaurant.  I wore my new swimming costume from River Island.  The Plus Black Baroque Print Belted Swimsuit perfectly matches the beach skirt that I have of the same print.  Its perhaps a little high in the leg compared to the styles I’d usually go for but I felt so fabulously bougie in it, it was unreal!  The print is stunning and really eye catching; it looks grand, expensive and really stylish.  With my Chloe Carlina sunglasses from Smart Buy Glasses, I felt every inch the bougie spa going prinny!

Spending time with those I love and making memories is one of my favourite things to do but I’d never have got to this point if it wasn’t for working on and finding my confidence.

Whether you’re in a swimming costume or a bikini this summer, the important thing is that you get out there and enjoy yourself.  Let this be the summer you choose to truly live. We put off so many things in life that we promise ourselves we’ll do WHEN we’ve done/lost/achieved X but that day WHEN is never promised.

Let’s GET REAL; we don’t know how much time any of us have left- if you were on your death bed you wouldn’t think, ‘oh I wish I’d sat by the side of the pool fully clothed watching everyone else enjoy themselves just one more time.’  You’d wish you had another opportunity to enjoy all that life has to offer. So get out there & life your live NOW!

Whatever your goal is in life, you’re not going to there overnight so why spend the next however many months or years hating yourself and not enjoying all that life has to offer?

Spend them loving yourself & you’ll get far further than you ever will hating yourself.  Trust me!

    That swim suit looks great and I agree life is too short we should go out and enjoy it.
