Top: Topshop *** Pants: Forever 21+ *** Flats: Miss Selfridge *** Bag: Topshop *** Sunglasses: Topshop *** Ring: Miss Selfridge *** Bracelet: New Look (Apologies for the crazy contrast in the first two pictures, the lighting in my room was odd today!) ♥

I haven't really been blogging lately for a few reasons. My room is full of boxes, I had to move all of them onto my bed to take these pictures! Moving has been delayed, to be honest i'm not really sure whats going on. The new landlord seems a bit sketchy, hopefully it will work out.
One of my lovely twitter followers sent me a link last week which kind of shocked me. If you follow me on there you probably read about it as I went on a mini-rant after finding out. Someone who reads my blog decided to post one of my pictures from the "Wednesday Addams wannabe" entry on an adult website.
I fully understand that when you put yourself on the internet you have to have a thick skin because there will always be haters. I have received "hatemail" from a few people in the past but thankfully the good always outweighs the bad. That said, posting my pictures on a website like that is the lowest one person can stoop. Would they post their sister or best friend on there? I doubt it. I understand that when I post my pictures on the internet people can do as they wish but honestly I think its disgusting to think you can post a strangers picture on there. Imagine if a future client seen my picture on there. The website in question is dedicated to posting pictures of naked band members, people from the music scene, etc. I photograph bands and chances are some of the people I work with have seen that website, thats what bothers me most of all. I do not want to be associated with a website like that.
I did contact the guy who runs the site and his response was "i'll take them down when you loose weight" (grammar error n' all!) How original. Then again.. i'm not quite sure why I expected anything different from him. I think most people on that website are still living in the past. Sorry to break to to them but its not 2005 anymore, myspace is dead, as is "the scene".
My picture was posted underneath naked pictures of a random male band member as a "reaction picture". I'm trying to look at the positives of this because there is always a positive side to a negative situation! So, lets see: I am fully clothed in the pictures, my picture makes the band guy look like a n00b as he used a low quality webcam, there is 75 comments on the post and only one directed at me ("fatgirl", again that site is just full of original people), I think the picture they chose is one of my favorites that I have taken for an OOTD recently, and lastly it could always be worse..I could be the naked guy, or any of the naked people on that website.
So with all of that ranting out of the way, the second picture in this post, me pulling a ridiculous face, is dedicated to whomever thought it would be a good idea to post my picture on an amateur adult website. If you wanted to use a picture for a reaction you could of at least picked one that would cause a reaction.

Have any of you ladies been watching American Idol this season? I watched an episode yesterday and I have to say that I am loving all of the outfits miss Jennifer Lopez is wearing! I especially loved her oversized pink blouse with bead embellishments, too pretty.

I'm feeling a little too pasty these days so I might spray tan myself tomorrow. If I look a little "Jersey Shore" in my next post you know why! I know its not for everyone but I think I look much better and healthier when I wear fake tan, plus you don't have to worry about side effects like you do with tanning beds!

  2. I think you look great in these photos! I have some pants similar to yours, i've had them for ages but haven't had the confidence to wear them and also can't find anything to wear them with. Love this look, so pretty. Don't let the idiots bother you, you're better than them! :) xx

  3. OMG that is horrendous behaviour, what an absolutely nobber. I am proud and respect you for seeing the positives in this situation. You are an amazing girl and you know what suits you, you are comfortable with who you are, and you are not fat by any means. That really angered me. I do however agree about the tan, I am so pale I look weird with a tan, it shocks people but I like it, I feel slimmer and more healthier. I can't apply fake tan as it always streaks whatever the product, spray tans all the way :) Keep positing, I have missed you x

  4. Absolutely shocked this happened to youm but I think the way you've handled it is admirable and you're beautiful so definitely ignore the rubbish people have said to you. Love your outfit and you still look pretty pulling a silly face! x x

  5. Thanks for the support girls ♥

    @ Jemma, I am fat but I really don't care. I used to, but it just describes my body, it doesn't define me as a person. And if my weight is the only thing someone can use to insult me, i'm doing pretty good for myself :) And I agree about tanning, I think it makes me look much slimmer too, especially my legs! I love how my (fake tanned) legs look in heels. I always got streaks with the tans that you use the glove/mitt with but since we got the airbrush tan machine I never have that problem, its amazing! I just don't use it as much as I should because I hate when the tan starts to fade, it looks all patchy and takes 2-3 weeks to fully come off my skin even though I exfoliate a lot!

    you look beautiful as always..<3
    i have been wanting a pair of those type of sunglasses for forever.
    have a wonderful week!!
    xoox

  9. I love your heart sunglasses and purse, so adorable! What is wrong with people, that person must be really pathetic to do something like that to you, there's probably a way to make them take the pictures down.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Wow... and I thought I get haters on my YouTube channel. "...take them down when you loose weight?" Pardon my language, but what a bastard this guy is. Haters gonna hate, but that's lower than low. I'm sorry you had to put up with this.

    As for this Outfit of the Day, this is a super-cute combination of white and black with many red accents. Lovely stuff! That's a silly and cute expression of yours in the second picture (I know the reason behind that image because I read the story). Great job yet again!

  11. Sorry you went through that, I don't get where these people find the time to do something like that, or WHY they would want to do it? Carry on smiling and show them nothing will get to you. :)

  12. LOVE LOVE LOVE this outfit!! Wish we had Topshop in the US because I would love to get that top. And those sunglasses are so cute!

    I saw your post about naked band members but I didn't know what you were talking about. That's horrible someone would do that!! And that's pathetic that the owner of the website would say something like that. That whole situation is just really unfair. I know you are "plus size" or whatever, but you do not look "fat" to me at all. You look a hell of a lot thinner than I am, that's for sure!

    I don't usually watch American Idol but my boyfriend and I usually watch the first few weeks with auditions and stuff and then we usually get bored and quit. This season, I saw that girl Emily Anne Reed and I REALLY REALLY liked her. But then I didn't see her like at all and I kept asking Erik if she got eliminated and he didn't know. Well I must have missed it because I searched online and she was cut. I'm really disappointed because I would've liked to follow her through the competition. Now I'll probably give up on watching, as usual.

    Have you ever spray tanned before? I'm super duper pale and my skin WILL NOT tan. It's very sensitive and it burns and goes right back to pale. If you have any recommendations for spray tan I'd love to hear them!

  13. you always look so adorable...the red lipstick works for you :)...too bad there isn't a way for us bloggers to secure the content on our sites, that would keep the "bad people" from using our images....anyway, just keep smiling pretty lady!

    ReplyDelete
  14. That's awful behaviour! You're lovely just the way you are. It's very inspiring that you're so optimistic :)
    I'm shockingly pale too - I'm too lazy for all that fake tanning though hehe!

  15. what a disgusting thing to do, i really admire the fact that your totally not letting it bother you just shows the person that did it how idiotic they are. Agreed J.Lo is looking rather amaze deff pulling out all the stops, the outfits get better and better haha! xx

  16. Thank you all for the lovely comments. Its so heartwarming to read all of them. I have the best readers :)
    All of this petty negative stuff means nothing in comparison to all of the wonderful support, kind comments, and amazing people I have made friends with through blogging. Its definitely not going to bring me down.

  17. I cannot believe someone would do that to you! That is so incredibly vile and distasteful! The way you are able to now move past it and realize how it could've been worse is so inspiring and it makes me happy to be a follower :) I only wish I would've found your blog and followed sooner! By the way, I think you are GORGEOUS and have really beautiful OOTDs :) xxx

    ReplyDelete
  18. LOL. Ignore them honey. When we put our pictures out there, we should have expected the worst :) You can't do anything to stop people from misuse. And I do like your outfit, very la parisienne!

    ReplyDelete
  19. omg thats quite disturbing, how horrible for you! it is hard when you are putting yourself out there for all to see, but people should just have some decency. on a happier note, i love all the red in your outfit, the bag, shoes, ring, so sweet.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Some people are just asses.

    I love your blog and outfits. We are fairly similarly sized and I get tons of inspiration from your outfit posts (you always have fab shoes too)

  21. oh i like the shades and the bag. they are so lovely~

  22. Oh no, that is horrible that anyone would ever do that. people these days are so low. you are better than them. and you are such a beautiful girl.

  24. God that is horrible that someone did that! Kudos to you for looking at the positives but still! A similar thing happened to my sister recently, where someone stole pictures from her facebook and used them on a dating website, one of her friends saw it and alerted her and when she contacted the website asking them to delete the account or at least remove the pictures they refused, basically like the same reaction you had! I do love your outfit here xx

    ReplyDelete
  25. This outfit is is lovely! Sorry about the nasty website business. Sounds like they aren't worth any more of your energy.

  26. I'm so glad you're not letting the haters get you down - you have the right attitude and I admire your positivity :) Whoever the person that did this is a pathetic excuse of a human being and well what comes around goes around...he/she will get their come uppance!

    Love the outfit! You look stunning as always :)

    The flats are super cute! I love leopard print flats...I need to buy some for when the weather starts to pick up!

  27. Oh my God I can't believe someone would do that. What a prick. As is the guy who runs the site and refused to remove it - I can't believe he would keep someone's photo up against their will. Karma will bite their arses someday x

    ReplyDelete
  28. That's so mean and disgusting! I don't know how people have the decency to do those kind of things! Anyway, you are super cute. Love the sunnies :) x

  29. Gosh, that is such childish behavior. I am sorry that you had to go through something like this. You are a beautiful young woman and nobody in their right mind would believe that you put your photo there. I hope it will not affect your work! Fingers crossed.
    I adore your outfit btw. The shirt is so cute, the pants I have been thinking about for a long time and you look so sweet.

    ReplyDelete
  30. What a sad story, I loved that post! I applaud you for staying so together on this. It's disgusting what people will do. But blogging doesn't make your pictures free to take for all? No legal recourse? Or do you just not want to bother?

    ReplyDelete
  31. You have the most amazingly healthy attitude. You're fab girly :) x

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love all of the red hints in your outfit!

    ReplyDelete
  33. There's so many things you could say about this example. I'm happy to read that you won't let this negativity bring your beautiful self down. As you stated there will always be haters (I think they are more jealous than they would admit). In a way it's tragic, you know. If this is the only way they can be/exsist in the world. Well, that's sad. For them.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oh my god, I'd be devastated if someone posted my photo on a site like that! Why the hell do these sick people do it?! As for the guy behind the site, what an absolute knob!

    ReplyDelete
  35. what horrible people. keep positive, and just ignore them. you are GORGEOUS!!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. aw thats awful :( I cant believe how some ppl act, what an ass :( Hpfly its true when ppl say karma is a bitch! They'll get theirs hun.
    Love your sunglasses btw how cute? :) x x

    ReplyDelete
  37. I got loads of hits a while ago because someone had posted a picture of mine on a chubby porn tumblr, oh joy. I'm sure any clients or anyone who sees the photo will know what the internet is like and that you haven't chosen to be there. Did you say it was a myspace profile? You could probably email them and get it taken down then on copyright grounds.

  38. Amazing accessories as always! You really make me wanna be more creative with accessories!

  39. Perfect outfit : love the color, especially the top ( like a frenche I am :D ) and you lovely lipstick like a french icone ;) you're lovely as always !

  40. That's disgusting that someone would actually waste their own time doing that. I think you handled it really well though and I'm sure if anyone did happen to see it they would realise you didn't request to be added to the site. Ps I only saw you're living in Ireland too today! So weird never really see many other Irish bloggers x

    ReplyDelete
  41. wtf? why would anyone even think to do that? the guys response is just ridiculous too eurgh, some people. hope it hasn't got to you too much though? your reaction picture is absolutely stunning btw. you have the most contagious smile! and you look adorable as ever. hope you're okay xo

  43. Oh my god! I'm very sorry to hear you have to go through something like this..

    Stay positive xx

  44. You look gorgeous as always, I especially love your purse and glasses! I'm so sorry that happened to you. I always get creeped out when someone favourites a picture of mine on flickr and I see that all of their favs are pictures of me, or sexual pictures of other fat girls. The internet has a lot of pervs/weirdos, unfortunately.

    ReplyDelete
  45. you look amazing, I love to match stuff and this outfit is perfect! it's sickening to hear whats happened to your pictures, wtf, seriously some people are sick in the head. good for you for standing up to them!

    ps sorry to hear about what you went through

    ReplyDelete
  47. Wow that is some negative stuff. I'm not sure if you have but there are usually links on the website that allow you to say the image is stolen so they can take it down. As for that creepazoid it's obvious he thinks you're a very beautiful "fat girl" (which you are) or else he wouldn't be obsessing. Stay Strong. (>.<)\m/

  50. Just read this entry and it's pretty flipping disgusting what these people did. And an adult website of all places! >_< And I can't believe you emailed the site and got such an immature response back. Are you considering putting your URL on your pictures? Hope you're okay.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Ugh, I can't believe people. It always surprise me how mean people can be sometimes. I'm glad you're looking at the positives, another postive, your makeup in this is perfection, I love it.
