Outfit ideas

Hi darlings, it’s been a moment! I haven’t been away, in fact it is quite the contrary, I have simply been sooooooo busy. Life has been incredibly busy over the last few months, in between trying to consistently slay the gram, be a dutiful friend, a lover to “bea” and an amazing sister to my family. This has in turn left little room for the other love in my life which is this blog.  I have set myself a new goal/challenge to get consistent with the frequency of my posts.

Spending the day with my blogger friend Luna meant in the natural scheme of things the day turned into a spontaneous photo shoot  Lobster lunch at Big Easy with margaritas ensured we were fuelled for our Chelsea strutting       I have realised over time, that my style is all about being chic with an extra edge, my Zara off shoulder top with a white contrast shirt underneath paired with thigh high boots  and my Zara chunky chain city bag tied the whole look together effortlessly.

Sitting at my office desk, a mail notification popped up on my screen, I had been sent a link for a Eurostar deal for a £29 one way ticket. It was a no-brainer as to which destination I was going to book, seeing as I had only recently travelled to Paris.

I mentioned in last week’s post (click here to read it) I meticulously plan my birthday to a tee with what to wear being of the optimum importance. My green and olive tulle dress was one of the 2 outfits  I bought for my 24th birthday celebration to afternoon

In my every day to day life, I love to break the mould. If I feel a sudden desire to skip as I am walking, I skip. If there’s fantastic music playing in a bar whilst everyone is sat down being proper and formal, I would get up and dance. This doesn’t mean I am not aware of social ethics and the fact there’s a time and a place for most things, however it does mean I am unafraid to live and to feel. It’s so easy it these days

24 days to the end of 2014…Depending on when you are reading this blog post, the number of days might have changed slightly. However what’s apparent is the fact 2014 is quickly drawing to a halt. For me it’s almost the end to a chapter of what’s been the highs and lows of a phenomenal year. Today couldn’t be a more a perfect time to reflect and recap on 2014. Here are a few random facts about my year: I found my first grey hair (slowly waking up to the

Since the end of Halloween, the Christmas adverts have come in hard and fast. Some of it had me cooing and awing whilst some just put me in a right strop.
