Back from the Land of Beautiful People...

So I am back from Ibiza....slightly bruised and worse for wear but generally in good shape and here is what I learnt from my experience....

1. Although Ibiza is the land of the achingly hip and trendy....vintage still rocks. I wore this outfit on the 'Showgirls and Sequins' night. Yes it was hot (thank you 1970's polyester) but I got tons of compliments and stood out...maybe a bit too much!!

2. We all try and loose that magical half a stone before holiday but once you are there it doesn't really matter if you have lost it or not....and it will not stop you having a fry up for breakfast followed by steak for dinner....with chips....and bread...with garlic mayo...all washed down with a litre of sangria.

3. Even though I haven't really exercised in...well....ever I was still able to dance for around six hours a night non-stop....sturdy legs I salute you!!

4. You are able to make fabulous new friends in a short space of time but also it doesn't actually matter if not everyone likes you.

5. And matter how brown you think you are if you sit on the last day in the sun with no protection on you will burn....FACT!!

Big Nights Out....

Today I am it is all my fault.

I spent the weekend before I go to the Island of Beautiful People (Ibiza) not relaxing, packing, getting my beauty regime up to scratch so I look totally fabulous for the upcoming trip....but instead I spent it jumping in a field on Friday whilst drinking every alcoholic substance possible, Saturday I ate more sausages that I have in my whole life and followed it up with white wine and then Sunday I ate a fry up followed by fried chicken.

Disgusting. does make you realise that no matter how much you try and plan to be good and healthy life always gets in the way.

To make up for the lack of pre-Ibiza beauty I have just bought this dress which makes my boobs look huge and waist look tiny....I admit it took some time getting it on and I was quite hot by the end of it but it is well worth it as it makes you look like you have lost half a stone instantly.

It also comes in red so I may buy both and then wear them everyday for an instant feel good fix....!!

H&M - £24.99

Vintage Festival... is smack bang in the middle of July which means only one thing....FESTIVAL SEASON.

This year I am off to Lovebox (only for one day as I am too old for any more), the Big Chill and to Brownstock.

I love a good festival but the same dilemma pops its ugly head up every year....what to wear.

Now if you are lucky enough to be born with legs like bambi then you have nothing to worry about as you can don a pair of denim shorts and wellies and away you go but for us ladies with more curvaceous of legs there is more of a quandary.

If it is hot then a gorgeous maxi is the way to go I feel as it hides the legs and makes you look taller (if you are small like me) and can be layered up with a denim waistcoat or leather jacket, tons of bangles and a straw trilby.

If it is cold and rainy I am feeling a vintage dress and wellies or knee high socks and plimsolls....both are flattering especially if the skirt is just hitting the knee. A fake fur is a great festival look that works perfectly with vintage and of course big sunglasses (all the top models wear their sunnies in the rain darhling...) and boho jewellery. is the Hummingbird Vintage guide to a curvy festival look....

Size 10 - £30

Size 12 - £30

Size 10 - £35

Size 14 - £30

Size 8 - £30
 I have found some fab plimsolls and trilby's at good old Primark as well as tons of great costume jewellery perfect for the festival season and then not too bad if it gets ruined or lost (this happens a lot when I go to festivals).

So for you vintage lovers...go forth and conquer the festival look vintage style...!!

Short for all you short brides...

This weekend saw me venture for the first time into the land of trying on wedding dresses......and let me tell you it is not as much fun as I thought.

My dream dress was a vintage lace creation with tiny cap sleeve and a small train or...failing that a 1950's prom dress. In the first shop that I had made an appointment in I choses an armful of dresses, sat Mother Hummingbird down with some bubbly and prepared to make her cry with the view of me...her only a wedding dress.

The first dress I tried on was infact my 'dream dress'....after I had spent a good five minutes struggling into this dress (no help from the owner I might add) I threw back the curtain to have a look only to find that I look about a foot shorter that I actually am and was not a good look.

After trying on a few more it turns out that lace is not the way to go if you are very short and very curvy....who knew!!

So then I started trying on EVERYTHING...from dresses so ridiculous that I couldn't even walk as they were so heavy to those so tight that sitting down would be impossible.

I left the shop announcing that all wedding dresses look rubbish on me and proceeded to get drunk..!!!

The next day...refusing to give up we went to another bridal be honest I did not hold out much hope....but it was WONDERFUL.

The girls in the shop we so lovely and helped me in and out of each dress although it was sightly mortifying standing there in non matching undies...note to self...always wear matching underwear from now on..!!

After they had laced me into the dress I would go and stand on a podium to see the dress in all it's splendor be honest...they all look totally amazing until I stepped off the podium and lost a good foot in height....then I looked like a hobbit in a wedding dress.

Out of all of them this was my favourite..... looked amazing on but what you have to realise is that I am so short that this dress was resting just above my ankles and when I stepped off the podium I looked like a wide toilet roll cover that my Nan used to have.
So it turns out that what I thought suited me is actually completely wrong and instead of a big bold 1950's dress I actually need a sleek elegant dress that will slim me down and make me look taller......either that or I get my legs extended..!!
