Introduce us to your blog… My blog is called  NattyNikki and my main areas of focus are plus size fashion and style. My aim is to show women that we can all look and feel fabulous.

What made you decide to start blogging? I started reading a lot of plus size blogs and then decided to have a go at starting my own and I have loved every minute of it!

What’s your biggest achievement in the blogosphere?  Meeting Gok Wan, I had no idea nine months ago when I wrote my first post that an opportunity like that would ever come my way!

Where do you look for inspiration when writing posts? My husband is a huge source of inspiration and will often be the one to suggest I blog about a certain outfit and is often on hand to dish out fashion advice!! He has quite a good eye for what suits my figure and a knack of knowing what will make a good post!

Is blogging your day job or do you have another occupation? I would love it to be, but by day I work in the jewellery trade in the heart of Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter which I do love.

Any favourite blogs/bloggers? Lots!!! But to name a few Just Me Leah , The Curved Opinion, Does My Blog Make Me Look Fat  and The Ramblings of Mrs BeBe

Tell us about your style… I seem to live in dresses at the moment especially swing and skater dresses, usually paired with a statement necklace and my big chunky boots!

What’s the one piece in your wardrobe you couldn’t live without? A decent bra!!! I am well blessed in the boob area so a good fitting bra is a must for me!

Who are your style icons? I love Adele, Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly as she looked so effortlessly stylish.

Share a style tip with us… Always wear good underwear as it can make or break an outfit. Get the foundation of your outfit right and the rest will fall into place.

How would you describe M&Co’s style?  Easy to wear stylish clothing.

What’s your favourite piece from our current collections? I adore the Plus printed skater dress!

Do you prefer to shop online or in-store and why? I do the majority of my shopping online due to the fact that there is a greater choice of plus sizing clothing available than on the high street, but I still love a good mooch around the shops with my mum!

The one trend you’ll be wearing this season is… Tartan I can’t get enough of it!
