132. In the eye of the beholder

Hat, Top, Shorts & Boots: New Look  //  Scarf: & Blazer: Vintage

Hey sweets,

So what better way to get myself back into the blogging world than with a little 'ootd' for you all. Today the sun has decided to take a off and let the rain and gloom take over, but that's ok, there's something about Autumn/Winter fashion that I just love.

I opted for a pretty basic look with lots of added interest. Underneath the blazer, which is very lightweight so perfect for this type of weather when it is still quite warm, I am wearing a plain black, long-sleeved top tucked into a pair of my favourite teal shorts (which I bought from New Look many years ago!), black tights and my beloved Chelsea boots. I then added my sheer, floral scarf which I bought from a charity shop all those years ago, to lighten up the outfit and my fedora - perfect in the light rain (you know the rain I mean, the type that you can't feel until you walk inside and suddenly realise you're soaking wet!). Lastly, of course I am wearing a bright lipstick to make up for all those months I couldn't wear lipstick with my top brace on. This particular shade is from the Kate Moss range, number 12.

This weekend I have been attempting to vlog, it being a bank holiday weekend and all! And the fact that I can finally enjoy bank holiday weekends now that I no longer work in retail! Woo!! Haha! So today I went for lunch with my Mum and her partner which was lovely and now I am at home, cuddling with the kittens watching the rain through the french doors. There's just something so lovely about snuggling up inside when it raining outside.

Also, the kittens decided to join me for a little photobooth sesh, haha! How cute do they look!!

I promise a post will be coming on the kittens soon! Speak soon lovelies,

Guess who's wearing lipstick?!

Hey sweets,

Look who's wearing lipstick again?! Anyone who has not read my blog before this will not seem like a big deal, but I have had braces on since February and haven't been able to wear lipstick as it rubs off onto the braces. It's never a pretty sight. But, incase you haven't seen by the pictures already, I got the top row of my braces off last Monday! Horray!! The bottom row will be kept on for around another 4 weeks as I wanted to keep them on a bit longer so that they have more of a chance of being perfectly straight (They're still facing in slightly so a little longer won't hurt!). Anyway, I did a whole video on it so feel free to take a look! Don't forget to subscribe and thumbs up my channel! I also completely forgot to mention on there what the whole experience was like getting them off, but I figure I'll put it all in the next update when I get the bottom row of. It's safe to say it didn't hurt one bit!

I hope you enjoy the video! As always, any questions you have then please leave a comment and I'll get back to you :)

Speak soon lovelies,


The secret is out...

Hello lovelies,

Long time no see, well, I guess there’s no change there then...

Well anyway, I have been in my new job for just over three months now and yesterday was the first time all of the girls in my team found out about my blog, the blogging world and my YouTube channel.

It all came about when we were talking about my future of creating my own business in clothing etc as some of the girls didn’t know about my fashion background. They asked me what the name of my company would be and then it all sort of unravelled from there really. There was no hesitation; they were all typing away coming over to my blog to have a good look, haha! It was a little nerve-wracking I must say but they were all so complimentary about my blog and videos and photos etc that it made me really proud of what I do and made me realise just how much I have let it all slip away just because I work more hours now. No one said having a full time job on top of a full time blog would be easy, but with everything that has gone on this year I guess my blog just sort of got pushed to the back of my mind and almost (not quite, but almost) dare I say it...forgotten about.

It’s quite ironic really as I planned to film a few video’s this weekend for my YouTube channel and the girls finding out about it all just made me realise how happy blogging makes me and how much of an escape it is for me. A place to share my thoughts, share my loves and sometimes vent a little too! I have missed it so much!! Even writing this rambly, out-of-touch post puts a smile on my face.

I’m not saying I’ll be blogging loads from now on, but atleast once a week to begin with until I plan my time a bit better with juggling my job and my blog. It just makes you realise how important it is to do what you love and never let go of it as it makes you who you are. Definitely something I've been reminded off this weekend J

Anyway, enough of the rambles. I just want to end this post by saying thank you to my work colleagues (if any of them are reading this!). Thank you for taking an interest in my blog and giving me a bit of spark and motivation back to blog again. And yes, you can all be in a vlog one day ;) haha! I am having a lot of fun working at my new job, they really are like one big family and I’m proud to say that I am now a part of that. Also, if you’re looking for life insurance then head on over to and get your life protected ;) (biggest plug non-related to my blog EVER!)

Speak soon sweets,
