life :: back to it

{Fix your thoughts on what is true and good and right. Think about things that are pure and lovely, and dwell on the fine, good things in others.} Philippians 4:8 TLB. Whatever “it” may be to you, it’s that time of the year again. The one I like to think of as Marmite you either […]

fashion :: blazed

As the Autumn has practically descended, don a jacket of school proportions. Yes, that’s me referring to the wardrobe staple: the blazer. Nothing is more polished and “smart” than a blazer, yet still screams that you have style. Think Coco Chanel and how she turned the menswear’s key piece into the wardrobe necessity of a woman […]

life :: melee

It feels like ages since I’ve written a post, although it’s only been two weeks. Have you ever felt like you’re in a transition stage? Yet stuck…? Lost somewhere between the melee of “life”.

Particularly motivational quotes. I get that obsessed reading words of truth that I both pin them and […]

beauty :: summer loves

I am always lacking in purely beauty posts, and as much as I enjoy makeup, it’s not the same for me as it is with clothes. However, as I am on holiday, and I have time to kill while my family are dozing, I thought I’d put one together.  FACE For topical usage, Forever’s Aloe […]

fashion :: dazzled in effort

After reading “Can we talk about…Gucci”, I feel as if I have connected with Claudia Winkleman on a level I never would have expected. I want to be that “44 year old…” who writes like that about a designer brand.  Maybe it’s merely the wannabe journalist, the over-analytical, ex-English Language student in me, but ahhhhh. I […]
