• My One Year Blog Anniversary!

    Happy Birthday to Style Irregular, Happy Birthday to SI, Happy birthday to Meeeeee! Celebrating my one year blog anniversary by changing up my site. what do you think?   I’ve been debating changing the layout for a while but I wasn’t sure if I should or if it was the right thing to do … you know the whole if it ain’t broke don’t fix it type of mentality. But it’s been a whole year… a whole 365 days since I started this journey. I figure that since I’ve grown and changed so much as a person and as a blogger that it makes sense to change the layout of…

  • The 2018 Review: Part 2

    And the review continues on… this 2018 Review: Part 2 covers my posts from May to August!    May  The type of love I don’t want…   This post I talk about my first love, HM, and how I was so attached to him. In fact I generalise that nearly everyone feels that way about their first love, because you’ve never been in love before. You have nothing to compare it too and therefore you just fall.  Another fact I bring up is that I love to listen to sad songs when I am writing! Ahaha I have no clue why I’ve always been a person that listens to sad…

  • How a blog post cost me a job…

    GET THE LOOK Earrings: H&M, old. Alternative options here, here and here. Jumper: Primark, can’t find it. Alternative here. T-shirt: Primark Trousers: Zara, old. Alternative here, Trainers: Marks & Spencer, sold out. Alternative here. Photographer: Connull Drummond That is correct… a blog post I wrote cost me a job. And it wasn’t for the reasons I thought it would be…   Ever since I’ve graduated all I wanted was a job in marketing, working for a company I believe in and get along with the my colleagues. That has been my dream when I started and finished my Postgraduate in International Fashion Marketing.  And still is now.  But, like most…

  • How do you know your being brave?

    GET THE LOOK Jacket: H&M Top: Primark Skirt: Primark Shoes: Primark, old. Alternative one here. Socks: ASOS, old. Alternative one here. Photographer: Connull Drummond That is the question on my mind… how is bravery defined? Is being brave something that can be defined with in a blog post? Can you be brave when your scared all the time? I have my own definition of bravery… and that has changed several times throughout the years.  When I was younger bravery was loud, dramatic gestures – like running into a burning building to save someone. Or jumping into a lake to save a puppy.  These are all grand gesture of bravery… for…

  • Should the best defence really be an offence?

       GET THE LOOK Overcoat: Zara, summer sale find. Similar here. Cardigan: Miss Selfridge, old. Similar here. Dress: Next Boots: Zara, old. Alternative here. Scarf: Present. Alternative here. Photographer: Connull Drummond This is following from my previous post. The best defence/is offence mentality is so ingrained in us that we don’t even realise that we are even doing it.    By that I mean we do it before we even realise. The thoughts zip across our mind before we can even fully register it; that is what we are even doing. As I’ve said in the previous post Why am I a no make up blogger? This mentality, of putting…

  • Why am I a no make up blogger?

    GET THE LOOK Jacket: Zara Women, old. Alternative here. Top: Topshop, old. Alternative here.  (I would get this mens t-shirt and cut it up to make it cropped.) Choker: Zara, old. Alternative here. Trousers: River Island Shoes: Marks & Spencer, SOLD OUT. Alternative here. Bag: Present from Mum (No idea where its from sorry.) Alternative here. Why me doing me isn’t a dig at you doing you. The reason behind me deciding on being a no make up blogger came up the other day at work. Therefore I felt the need to write about it.    I decided to become a no make up blogger… yes thats right. From my…

  • Finding the motivation…

    GET THE LOOK Jacket: New Look Necklace: Old, Similar here. Top: Primark Dress: Primark x Stacey Soloman Boots: Raid, Old. Similar here. Bag: Michael Kors I’ve been asked this before, by several people where I find the motivation/drive/time/energy to do what I do on the daily basis (i.e work all day, go to the gym, meal prep, do shoots, research, listen to podcast and other daily blogger duties.) and my answer usually differs depending on who I am speaking to.  To put this concisely i genuinely don’t know where i get the motivation from. The main reason why I answer everyone differently because it depends on who they are as…

  • How do you define ‘success’?

    GET THE LOOK Scarf: Christmas Pressie. Coat: Primark, can’t find online. Similar here. Top: New Look, old. Similar here. Skirt: Zara, old. Similar here. Fleece Tights: Primark, old. Similar here. Shoes: Zara, old. Similar here. Photographer: Connull Drummond This is hard for me to explain concisely… basically the definition of success is entirely situational. It is/should be unique to you as an individual based on your personal expectations and capabilities.    The definition of success is clarified in the Collins English dictionary as;  “the achievement of something that you have been trying to do.” which I actually agree with… which is surprising. Sometimes when I look up the meaning of…

Skirt: Boohoo, old. Alternative here. Over the knee sock: H&M Trainers: Primark, sold out. Similar here. Photographer: Connull Drummond When your circumstances change you need to change with it or your gonna stress yourself out. Or if you anything like me get lazy af!    I haven’t had much time to think about this weeks blog post… In fact there were two topics that sprung to mind when I was thinking about what to write; how I get my blog writing inspirations…

  • My first trip to a Prison…

    GET THE LOOK Hat: Primark, cant find online. Alternative one here. Jacket: River Island, similar one here. Top: Zara Skirt: Zara Bumbag: Zara Boots: Depop, similar one here. I make it sound like a class trip or something…but there is no other way to put it. Today (Friday 12th) marks my first trip to a Prison. It was nerve racking and intimidating as fuck.  I actually had my mind set on writing about a completely different topic. I had the layout all set in my mind and I even had a beginning, middle and ending planned out.  Which is unusual for me. I tend to just write by ear. But…
