Under Top: Primark Scarf: Primark Jeans: Zara Ankle boots: New Look   What is more important? What spreads the personality more? Podcast? aka audio or blogging aka the written word?    I’ve been thinking of this for a while now… audio or the written word? or written word over audio?  Basically whether or not to start a podcast.  I think it is a natural step forward for me? I’ve been talking about it on and off for while now with folk on the side. Not too in depth because I don’t want to…

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…

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?

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…

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…
