Welcome to bigbawdyburlybeauty.com. My name is Nikee, though I’m often known as my alter-ego Patti Cakes!

I’m a woman in my late 20’s, living in the north west of England. My beautiful Victorian terraced house is full of colour, love, pineapples and my three cats: Darwin, Delilah and Chandler. I’d describe myself as a plus-sized pinup, merging traditional vintage fashion with modern body positivity.

I began blogging towards the end of 2015, and created BigBawdyBurlyBeauty after confronting a complication with my physical and mental health. I’m living with Hypothyroidism and I’ve recently been diagnosed with M.E (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) too. This blog has helped me develop my style, discover new brands, make incredible friends and work with wonderful people. I can’t wait to see where it takes me!

So, why BigBawdyBurlyBeauty?

I’m Big in personality and dress size. I’m 5’11, currently a UK size 22, with 40H bras and wide fit size 8 feet.

Bawdy: if you meet me in a social situation, it will be less than 5 minutes before I either swear or say/do something crude!

Burly is short for burlesque, one of my main passions and an outlet for my creativity. I’m both an avid audience member and an up and coming performer as Patti Cakes.

Beauty covers my vocation of make-up artistry and my continuous investment in the cosmetics and skincare industry.

Expect pin-up eleganza, beauty reviews, costuming and cats!
