| Embracing Your Style & Yourself | 07/07/17 |

I love this quote. I was sat on the end of my bed, questioning how I could write a blog post that surrounded the subject of embracing yourself and your style. I began to scour the web and Pinterest pages for words of wisdom and inspirational quotes, because we all love an inspirational quote. I stumbled across this one, and it caught me dead in my tracks - I mean, I wasn't going anywhere I was sat quite still drinking my 42nd cup of tea of the day, but allow the metaphor to stand bold in all its glory. I think that this quote is so significant because it speaks the absolute truth. A non-sugar coated perspective on the importance of embracing who you are unapologetically. 

We all share the natural process of birth and death, and we all belong on the same planet that we call home. But that's as far as we are comparable to every other human being. As a species, we are cornered into stereotypes and into expectations, denying ourselves of the very fact that we are all unique in our own personal way. In my opinion, the differences we have from one another are what makes us a person, more so than a collection of cells, randomly selected to be a part of the world. We each share different upbringings, social skills and experiences that shape us to become who we are. So to not embrace that, would be to deny ourselves of who we are. Therefore, this quote speaks volumes because it is in fact the individual qualities and 'weird' mannerisms of ours that enable us to be strong people, and to dominate the world in our own way.

On a slightly more fashion based level, embracing our personal style is important, and relevant. The way we present ourselves in society marks a segment of our personality and our views on the world. So ensuring we are portraying ourselves accurately and honestly depends on the fashion choices we make, and deciphers whether we are choosing to hide behind trends to 'fit in', or whether we choose to embrace who we are by wearing that leather jacket covered in sentimental pin badges, or our beloved yet torn apart pair of converse. Our imperfections speak loudly, but so do our fashion choices. Therefore, I would recommend highly that you all embrace yourself and your personal style, in the hope we can all feel a little more comforted by the way we are portraying ourselves to the world, and by being honest with who we are. After all, we are only here once, and we owe it to ourselves to make the most of our time on this incredible planet we call home.

Thank you for reading, and see you again next time. Sending peace and love to all you lovely readers and all of those close to your heart.

'Never be sorry for who you are. Your personality should never be shrouded in what society expects of you. Be shamelessly, unapologetically you. You will find the world rallies behind those who carve roads of their own.' Beau Taplin / The Road

The internet is such a strange world, and it is in fact its own world - so far from reality yet so close, it redefines society conceptually to be honest. The internet can bring such wonderful things into the world: the announcement of a new baby, an endless supply of fashion inspiration, the top news at the fastest rate, and so many amazing memories and conversations can be shared between the beautiful people on this planet. The internet is an extraordinary place, and even more so as someone who has grown up in this time of technology. I bloody love the internet and all it brings to the world, I honestly think the internet is such a great platform for humanity to connect, share and create.
However, I have been wondering my mind recently, quite intently, and have found myself shying away from the internet, and social media platforms. Despite the fact I have no huge following…

| Going Back To Basics | 10/10/17 |

Gooood morning, and welcome back to the blog. Today, I wanted to share with you another post from my first fashion photo shoot. This outfit, I feel, is perfect for this transitional period, and is also verging on the smart side of fashion (for me anyway, lol). I really enjoyed piecing together this outfit, and trying to experiment with my personal style. As you all undoubtedly know, I often opt for the comfier garments and that aspect of my style definitely is portrayed through most of my blog posts. But equally, trying something new is exhilarating, particularly with Autumn homing into view so I want to diversify my wardrobe. I am loving the tailored look, and am growing fonder of fitted tops that enhance my body a lot more than a baggy tshirt or oversized jacket would.

SUP GUYS! How are we all doing this morning? 
I am currently sat on my bed in the late afternoon, with a hot cup of tea to hand (hopefully I won't forget about it), and I am really digging deep in my thoughts in terms of what I want to talk about today. A stressed student, on the cusp of several deadlines and all I can think about is this blog post. Blogging is a funny thing, sometimes it is my ultimate escape where I can just unwind and spill out onto the page whatever springs to mind. But sometimes, blogging can feel overwhelming, like I am being forced to think about my reality in its most raw state, and sometimes life is not all fun and games, and I just don't really want to come to terms with my busy mind. 
Before I babble on about life and bore you all, lets jump straight in to the outfit I have styled for you t…
