I’ve always been a little bit rubbish at reading. I tend to go through phases where I throw myself into a book but then can go for months without picking it up again. I know, I know, for a lot of you that probably sounds painful, but when you’ve got everything else in life weighing you down, reading, for me anyway, tends to be a pretty low priority on the list unfortunately.
Today’s little spring outfit breakdown is an outfit which I’m gravitating towards *way* too much lately but it’s one which I feel completely myself in so maybe that explains it.
This is the first of what will, hopefully, be a little stream of spring/summer styling posts. I’ve been planning these for a little while now and was excited to get going with them.
September has hit and boy am I happy about it. Autumn for me is definitely my favourite time of year. I adore the cooler evenings, the crisper air and the excuse to crack out my immense jumper and cardigan collection (I seriously think I have a problem).
Hello, hello, hello! How the devil are you? How are things going? Long time no speak…. Ahh yes, I have been utterly useless at keeping on top of blog writing lately, everything seems to be getting on top of me and as blogging is just a little side line hobby for me it seems to be amongst the first things that gets forgotten about in the chaos of everyday life. I can only apologise and say, “Sorry guys, I’ve been a bit crap at acing life lately”, not that I ever “ace life” (god that’s such a cliche, why the hell did I use it…) I tend to just amble along and hope everything turns out ok… but I’m going off track here….
Life can get a little heavy sometimes. It can be so easy to let the daily grind of general day to day life drag you down and make things seem pretty pointless. We are all guilty of it and it’s completely rubbish. I for one frequently feel it and it can be totally crap. You find yourself questioning your life choices and how you’re handling this little ol’ thing called adulthood.
I’m trying to take on Annie’s positive go get ’em attitude in titling this blog after her most catchy of tunes. It can be pretty hard to maintain that irritatingly PMA (positive mental attitude… I’m not sure if this an actual abbreviation people use but I’m rolling with it…) when there’s something that seems intent on making me utterly miserable…. I’ve been making little spring/summer wardrobe purchases here and there for a while now and I am itching to style them up and get some wear out of them, there’s only one thing stopping me… this bleedy awful weather!
I travelled a lot when I was younger. Me and my family rarely sat still, we were constantly on the move. I was taught at home for a lot of my childhood because we moved around so much so I’m used to not settling in one place. Continue reading “I ain’t no city slicker…”
A few weeks ago I was heading for an evening out with with some friends. I hadn’t been out in an absolute age (seriously, picture a barren desert with no water but swap the water out for alcohol… You get the picture…) so I was, as you can imagine, chomping at the bit for a tipple or two. Like any of you out there I love to have an excuse to get my glad-rags on and put on that deep red lip and don that extra long eye-liner flick. Continue reading “The ones that got away…”
I don’t know about you but every time February comes round I am incredibly bored of winter. It’s one of those “meh” months. There are no particularly exciting holidays or events (I don’t count Valentines Day as an important enough or exciting enough holiday, sorry! Pancake Day on the other hand, I can get on board with…) and the weather is never exciting either. We are all fed up of the cold and find ourselves pining for the spring that is oh so reluctant to make an appearance.
