| Let Yourself Grow | 14/07/17 |

Morning everyone. 
As the summer months are passing us by, I challenge you to stop and think, for almost a mid-year reflection. What have you achieved this year? How many times have you stepped out of your comfort zone and pushed the boundaries? Is there anything you have managed to do this year that you never thought you could? 

It is so important for us to occasionally pause from our busy schedules that never naturally give us a breather, and to take an alternative perspective on our every move in order to reflect on whether we are allowing ourselves to grow. To become a better version of ourselves, with more experience, deeper emotions, and fonder memories. 

Today, I aspire to use this blog post to share my own reflection, and the way I am truly feeling in the midst of 2017. Having this platform to share my thoughts is becoming such a great ordeal for me, to be able to express myself in a way I wouldn't usually, and to have a sense of purpose to my life that continues to progress, regardless of whether its term time at university. Shall we begin?

 So, here are four little helping hands on how to allow yourself to grow. 

1) The first key to successfully developing as a person, is to take the initial step and just give it a go. Trying new things is so important in discovering who you are and what is a match with your personality and talents. Also, do not let the struggle put you off trying, no matter what people think or how difficult you find the task ahead, keep trying. You will get better. And if you don't enjoy it, try something else. Life is all about giving things a go and experimenting. 

2) Have you ever doubted your abilities? Have you ever felt like you're incapable of something and compared your talents to the ability of others? Well in order to let yourself grow, you must overcome this. By beginning to learn how to have trust in your abilities and having faith in your decision making, you may feel much more comfortable with yourself and what lies ahead. By adapting a positive mindset, that is both logical but also optimistic, you can become a lot more confident in yourself, which will in turn, allow you to grow and to find your way through the pathway of life.

3) No.3. Thirdly, it is so good for people to feel self-assured and be able to make decisions without allowing the opinions of others to consume you. If you aspire to whisk yourself away on a trip for one; or if you don't want to stick to a healthy diet and you want to eat that cake but the judgement of others is telling you otherwise, fuck it, go with your heart. Never hold back because of the shadowing opinions of peers - unless you're planning to do something completely stupid of course!

4) Finally, the concept of acceptance. I feel as though the word acceptance and the ideals behind it are thrown about frequently in society today. And it really shouldn't be taken lightly, because accepting yourself for who you are can be very daunting and challenging for people, especially if you are riddled with insecurities or mental barriers. However, for you to be able to grow as a person, and to become the most you possible, accepting yourself is so important. Thus, we should be aware that the decisions we make and the experiences we have will alter who we are, and our attitudes towards the world. That is what is so magical about the human race, our personalities are factored by so many small experiences, large adventures, and social interactions  which accounts for who we are and who we become in the future. Accepting that this is ok will help us come to terms with our most intimate being and therefore, we can naturally, organically grow and blossom. 


Thank you so much for reading as always.
Sending peace and love x

Winter Coat Styling & The Most Important Aspects Of Life.

Evening everyone, I hope you are having a wonderful weekend so far and are keeping warm and cosy in this awfully miserable British weather. I also expect that you have seen the John Lewis Christmas Advert for this year, or else you're a slight scrooge and complete disappointment. Watch it here before you continue to read this blog post, if you haven't already indulged in the festivity because it is wildlife-filled and exceeds the word cute.

American politics aside, I am hopeful that you have all had a great week working hard, and are being rewarded with a relaxing weekend so far. There's nothing quite like a chilled out weekend after a busy week. Lush.

This week I thought I would go all guns blazing with a wintery blog post, as I have been desperately waiting to start wearing this gorgeous coat. Although, I'll be wearing from now until probably April before we see sunshine agai…

October 21st 2016. An evening of reflection.

Hello!
So, picture this: A slightly sleep deprived student perched on the step of the backdoor, coffee to hand. The sweet sound of Nick Mulvey's album First Mind complimenting the silence of an empty house. A cold, crisp evening in midst October and a wandering mind. I decided to write this post as an expression of reflection and contentment, a diversion from the usual materialistic posts on fashion items and styling attempts.

I would firstly just like to apologise for not posting in a few weeks, but as you may or may not know, I have just began my university adventure and despite the fact I have only been here three weeks, I feel as though its already been a lifetime of experiences and lessons learned.

First day of uni
University has honestly been the most insane journey so far: the almost sleepless nights; extreme consumption of alcohol and trying to find my way around university and the town I now call home. I have enjoyed every hungover moment and I simply feel like I needed …

HEY DUDES!

In less than a month I am tooting off to Spain for the festival Benicassim with George and some friends, so the next couple of posts are going to be pretty central to outfits relating to festival attire and what I've been wearing during my trip. So, this is the last 'normal' outfit I will be posting for a few weeks, yet to be honest, this is still relatively holiday appropriate. Hope you enjoy.

sorry about the awful brow game...lol

The focal point of this post is evidently this insane shirt by ASOS. When I first came across this shirt on the ASOS website, I absolutely fell in love with the back detailing of it, and also the sketchiness(?) that the print provides. I was also really digging the orange and pink vibes, alongside all the other colours proudly displayed on this piece. However, I must say when it arrived by the lovely DPD that knows me very well now (lol) it really didn't loo…
