• 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…

  • Everything happens for a reason, heres why…

    GET THE LOOK Jacket: ASOS, old. Similar one here. T-shirt: ASOS. Dress: Zara, old.Similar one here. and alternative, fun one here. Belt: Topshop, old. Similar one here and alternative one here. Trainers: Primark Scarf: Old Pressie. Photographer: Connull Drummond  It’s such a cliche isn’t it? Everything happens for a reason. I know people hate cliches but I don’t. They are cliches for a purpose. Check out my thoughts on cliches and this one in particular.   My go-to online dictionary has defined a cliche as a noun that “is a trite, stereotyped expression…a popular or common thought or that, that has lost originality… impact by long overuse”. Of course it…

  • 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…

  • Work to Live? Or Live to Work. Is one better?

    GET THE LOOK Jacket: Zara Jumper: Primark, can’t find. Alternative one here. Jeans: Primark, can’t find. Similar one here. Shoes: Converse Photographer: Connull Drummond  Is there a better one? Work to live over Live to work? I suppose to think of this efficiently you need to understand the meaning of each. I know you know the saying, but I’ll bet your definition is different than anothers…  Everyones interpretations of sayings can be quite mixed. Which is awesome cause then it can lead to an open discussion.  I’ve been listening to a lot of podcasts recently, so I’ve been hearing ALOT of open discussions. I’ve switched from listening to music to…

  • 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…

Second Bomber Jacket: Zara It is that time of year again guys… winter is here and its boltic! Unlike all my other fellow beautiful bloggers who love winter, I HATE it. I hate being cold, I hate lugging around heavy jackets when am warm inside shops but freezing my ass off when am outside. But what IS fun is getting that new warm winter coat that keeps you all cosy 🙂    Recently I went up to Aberdeen for a mini family reunion and was thankfully treated to…
