Plus North 2013

Over the weekend, the Simply Be team headed off to attend one of the hottest plus size events of the year – Plus North. This plus size beauty & fashion event took place on Saturday 7th September in our home town of Manchester – whoop whoop!

The event was organised by bloggers Becky Barnes and Toni King and took place at the lovely Renaissance Hotel right in the hub of the city centre. The day was a success and we had such a great time meeting all the bloggers and Simply Be shoppers! :)

Organisers Becky & Toni – they both did an amazing job on Saturday – well done girls!


The Simply Be team were on hand to show off our new autumn winter range, here’s a few pics from our beautiful stand… ;)
