I tell you what I could definitely get on board with living Yorkshire life the views are nice, the air is fresh as a daisy and the water is spectacular. Why does it taste so delicious?? My skin is looking great and my hair is the softest it’s been in years. What a treat! Give me a wave if you are from these parts of the world or as they are so fondly described as ‘Gods own Country’

What would you be interested in me covering and who would you like to see me talk to on @theconfidencecorner podcast??! Let me know below! 👇🏼❤️

This is how I wanna be in the summer. Relaxed and unbothered. Not in pain and uncomfortable from unfortunate (but very normal chafe) When it comes to finding confidence in the summer I feel like I’ve kinda found a way to not worry about anything other than my own opinion. It’s finding comfort for me that can sometimes be a struggle. Especially when it comes to chafing ! It’s something that nearly everyone (plus size or not) experiences especially during hot weather. Even just walking around by the pool or going for a long walk in the beach can be uncomfortable if I’m not prepared which is why I’ve searched high and low for something to work for me. I’ve tried everything. Oils, talc, makeup primer, deodorant, you name it and I’ve tried it and honestly I’m so glad to find a brand that ships to the UK and does everything I need from it. It’s easy to apply with a stress free, mess-free stick. You just pop it on the area where you are particularly suffering with chafing skin and it can also be used to soothe sore areas. It’s long-lasting, effective, sweat and water resistant, for all skin types and it’s Organic and Vegan. Some tips regarding his product from my personal perspective You need to reapply throughout the day, especially after swimming or when I was super hot. I found it to be really effective but reapplication is key! I would definitely recommend giving it a go! If you would like try for yourself let me know and I’ll send you the  @ivyverdure link They have also offered my babes 15% discount code at checkout using: CALLIE15 #ivyverdure #chafing #antichafe #vegan #organic

Missing the Blue hues of Mauritius today. London is set to be a scorcher this week and there’s no catamarans in sight. Oh well a dip in a Lido will have to do ❤️💕 Photo taken by @blastoff_creative on the @attitude_hotels press trip I went on back in May #mauritius #discovermauritius #attitudehotels #mauritiusexplored

Happy weekend folks! The sun is finally shining again and Dan and I are going to try and finish up the garden. We are also sitting down to plan our up and coming trip to Cape Town this afternoon which is something I love to do because I’m definitely a fan on travel planning when on a trip. With limited time I like to make the most of the days whilst also allowing for spontaneity and change when I get there. We’re Just so excited for this trip and I’ve got so many special things planned for us. I’ve already booked our hotels, a spa and today I’m finding all the best food spots and booking reservations for dinner. Are you a planner when it comes to your trips or do you prefer to go with the flow?

It’s a rainy day in London but I’m not mad about it. ☔️ I love the sound of rain it’s definitely up there as one of my favourite ever sounds

I finally cleaned my office. I often think when my home is a mess it’s a reflection of mind anyone else feel like that? At the moment I’m struggling with sleep 💤 I’m not falling asleep until 2/3am and then I can barely open my eyes come 10 the next day. I feel all our of sync! So last night I decided to crack on and tidy my office, it feels so good to be able to get some work done in a clear and open space. I’m hoping to get through some work I’ve been avoiding and tick of somethings on my to do list! Wish me luck!

[AD] What is it that holds you back from working out and moving your body? Is it the fear of others judgement or is it fear of your own ability? Either way I know workout intimidation is real. I’ve been there, avoiding gyms, group classes, or open spaces and it’s definitely not fun. I love to move my body, go on bike rides, do yoga, go swimming at Lidos and just generally stretching my body! But even I occasionally get the fear and worry of others looking at me work out. It’s so sad that we have been made to feel this way. We should feel happy and joyful about moving our body not worried or stressed This is why I’m excited to work with @elomilingerie on their ‘Live Limitless’ challenge. I chose the challenge number 15 ‘say no to work out intimidation’ I never normally work out when I travel especially not in fancy gyms or spaces where I don’t feel comfortable, but I pushed myself and this weekend. When holidaying in Barcelona I got up and did a mini work out and stretching session on the rooftop of my hotel. It felt so good to move, and even though there were people enjoying time by the pool while I was doing it I didn’t let that stop me! It definitely helped wearing my ‘Energise’ sports bra which is SO good in making me feel secure when working out. So I’ve taken my challenge now it’s your turn. Elomi wants to help inspire and empower women to live life without limits, so they have created 30 challenges for everyone to take part in and all you need to do is sign up on the Elomi Challenge Hub www.livelimitlesschallenge.com ! Tell me your story about workout intimidation and what challenge on the hub calls out to you. Let’s live limitlessly together 💕 who is with me?! @elomilingerie #ElomiLingerie #ElomiEnergise #LiveLimitlessChallenge #LLChallenge15

Daydreaming. No procrastinating that’s what I’m struggling right now. I start a task then my mind wanders, then I start another and well, you get the picture . I feel like I have an inbuilt wiring error that limits me from committing to things and it frustrates me so much! Does anyone else battle with this? Or if not what has helped you? I would love to know what book/podcasts/resources recommendations that have helped. Outfit deets: dress @simplybeuk Shoes @evansclothing [gifted items]

Dreaming of my weekend away in Montauk with @anthropologie 🌊 So in love with their summer pieces right now. Especially this gorgeous playsuit. #summerofanthro #anthropologieplus

A BEACH BODY is whatever you want it to be. 👊🏼 It might feel like this message has been said over and over especially in progressive spaces on the internet/social media but actually it’s easy to forget that not everyone outside of social media feels confident when it comes to wearing swimwear. It took me years to feel brave enough to be in a bikini/swimsuit. To this day I still get messages from women who tell me they wouldn’t dream of wearing a swimsuit not even to take their kids swimming. We have been trained and taught that only ‘traditionally beautiful bodies’ (I.e. slim) look good in swimwear. THIS IS NOT TRUE. but regardless of beauty, that doesn’t really matter because beauty is subjective, it’s more about being comfortable, content and included. Most importantly it’s about normalising something so natural our untouched bodies So to be in a national mag with my own page spread and alongside 10 other gorgeous women sharing this message, to me feels like such a big deal it gets the message out even further and helps push change and encourages people to be confident and live life on their terms. I feel hella proud to be part of this with @youmagazine and @nicolajgriffin @mamastillgotit_ @sineadii @arrriish @darth_bodor @georgie_blackmore @ckwayie @puremess_skincare @agelesswithshirley Copies of the mag are out today!!

Today is gonna be a scorcher in the uk 🔥 So don’t forget to hydrate & wear your SPF! 🧴 Dan and I are enjoying our garden for the first time this summer and potentially considering buying a paddling pool 😂 oh and of course having the all important British summer BBQ! Tell me your fav things to have at a BBQ Mine is definitely grilled corn on the cob!! 🌽 🙌🏻 Dress & Bag is @anthropologie Photo @ju_wels

[AD] The face you make when you find a swimsuit that makes you feel 💯 So Excited to share that @figleavesofficial have extended their collection from 18-26 and I gave the products a trial run when I was in Mauritius. I Love this blue floral swimsuit from it’s giving me Lisbon/Santorini tile vibes. Which is a big summer mood! 😍💕👌🏼 What do you think?

calliethorpe

[AD ] Those who mask together stay together 😂❤️ No but seriously as much as Dan pretends he doesn’t, he actually loves when I get us to do a face mask together. It’s mostly the fuss of putting one on that gets on his nerves and fair play they can be messy and sticky and he gets landed with the clean up 🙊 However thanks to @olayuk new Clay Stick Masks I’ve found us a mess free compromise - All mask no mess! This one we are wearing is the glow boost and omg it really is so much easier with just three simple steps: 1. Push up from the bottom and glide across a clean dry face 2. Let sit for 10 minutes 3. Rinse with water It makes our skin feel soft unlike some clay masks we have tried before and Dan definitely has more sensitive skin than me and he really enjoyed the results. Plus the mask stick is a bargain £12.99 and 40 issues is pretty good right?! And it’s available for you to buy in @superdrug So tell me who else’s partner secretly loves a pamper day? 😉 #OlayChallenge #OlayMyWay [AD]

New York in June is hot hot hot 🔥 and just after this moment a shop executive from a clothing store across the street brought my friends and I an ice cold bottle of water to cool us in the blazing mid day sun for no other reason than to just be kind Moments like this remind me that there is goodness in the world 🌎❤️

Wow I can’t begin to explain how amazing the last few days have been. I’ve been here in Montauk with @anthropologie for their summer solstice party. Celebrating with delicious drinks, beautiful shared meals, golden sunsets, s’mores over a fire pit all with the beach right on our doorstep. Truly magical, but nothing less than I expected from Anthropologie and the fabulous team #summerofanthro #anthropologieplussize

Long maxi dresses are so good for weekends away. They are the type of thing that can be worn right through the day until dinner and get be dressed up or down depending on the mood.

[AD ]In our house Dan and I like to mix it up when it comes to house hold responsibilities. We definitely believe in equally sharing the stuff that needs to be done. Out of the two of us I would say Dan is definitely more hands on when it comes to doing the cleaning and the washing. I’m more of the admin side, I manage the bills, the shopping, the cooking, and the holidays. This is the dynamic that suits us and besides why should we adhere to traditional roles? Whilst we are at it we practice that same principle with our cleaning products! In the house we now use @methoduk cleaning products because they are products with a difference They are plant based/non toxic 100% recycled Biodegradable Vegan friendly We especially love their new laundry detergents and fabric softeners because firstly they smell bomb.com (hello Pink Freesia, Tropical Coconut and Wild Lavender which are just some of their gorgeous scents 😍 but also because you can mix up the scents to make your own personalised favourite scent!! After careful deliberation I have decided that my fav is the ‘Garden Party’ scent a mix of Orchid fruit and Ocean Violet. Uhhh it smells so good fresh out of the washing machine! Which scent are you most drawn to when it comes to your washing? Fresh, floral or Tropical? Tell me in the comments! #LookGoodDoBetter #MethodAddict #methodcleaning [paid partnership with @method_uk ]

I’m so here for a summer full of road trips and picnics in the sunshine ☀️ Tell me your favourite place to visit or things to do at the weekend?

I absolutely adore spending the day by the seaside. There’s something so lush about the sea air, and the atmosphere. Plus it wouldn’t be a trip to the seaside if it didn’t involve all the good seaside snacks am I right!? Fish and chips, stick of rock, oysters, ice cream! Not in that order obvs 😂 but all definitely favourites of mine. What is your favourite thing to do and eat at the seaside? 👙🍭🦞 Oh ps my gorgeous jumpsuit is from @riverisland plus range and was kindly *gifted.

Back to life, back to reality. Catching you up on the palaver I’ve had since returning from Mauritius on stories because well it’s been interesting 🤪 I’m missing being in exclusively swimwear and drinking punch and eating delicious curries and hanging out with new friends. But for now it’s sofa and chill time. Catch you on the flip side of the weekend friends ❤️

Jumping into the Indian Ocean off a Catamaran done ✔️ Another bucket list ticked off, and 1000 more to go. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to travel and experience so many amazing things if there’s one thing I’ve learnt over the years is to live life to the absolute fullest, do things that push you out of your comfort zone, try new foods and experiences and appreciate every moment. Thank you to @attitude_hotels and @weliketravel for this incredible experience I’ll never forget it 💦💕🌍

A dip in the Indian Ocean 💦 [press trip] As days go this one was kinda special. This morning we took @attitude_hotels Catamaran boats and sailed out for a dip and a spot of snorkelling in the Indian Ocean. It.was.incredible. I jumped off the boat, swam in the incredible Azul blue sea and ate delicious bbq food with all the lovely folk on this press trip. If you are thinking of coming to Mauritius I can hand on heart say that I recommend staying with Hotel Attitude. Because not only are their hotels 👌🏼👌🏼but this is something that guests can do and trust me you want to do this. Check out my stories to see just how beautiful it was. PS here’s the view from our drone! Not bad huh

Okay gals it’s time to talk about Chafe! [paid partnership with Ivyvedure] It’s something that I think nearly everyone (plus size or not) experiences especially during hot weather and it’s nothing to be embarrassed about. It’s just a part of life! In fact every time I go away the number one question I get asked is surrounding how I cope with it. Firstly, I’ve tried just about everything. Oils, talc, makeup primer, deodorant, you name it and I’ve tried it. The thing is some of those things do work for some people, but are those chemicals something you should be putting in intimate areas? In my experience and after research I’ve realised no. My recent trip to Palm Springs and Mexico for the full two weeks I used @ivyverdure and I’m now using it here in Mauritius 🇲🇺 It’s dead easy to apply using a stress free, mess-free stick. You just pop it on the area where you are particularly suffering with chafing / skin friction and viola you’re done! It’s long-lasting, effective, sweat- and water resistant, for all skin types and it’s Organic and Vegan. I personally had to apply two/three times throughout the day, especially after swimming or when I was super hot but I found it to be really effective. I would definitely recommend giving it a go! If you would like try for yourself @ivyverdure have free shipping and have offered my babes 15% discount code at checkout using: CALLIE15 Let me know if you have any questions I’m happy to answer ❤️ #blister #blisters #irelief #ivyverdure #chafing #antichafe #vegan #organic
