| 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?

Smock Top: By a brand called Salad, but can't seem to find their existence anywhere!!
Denim Skirt: ASOS
Espadrilles: Dune

 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…

| I'm Feeling Tropical | 15/06/17 |


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

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…

| Autumn Is On The Way | 12/09/17 |

I am in absolute shock at how quickly this year is passing us by, how is it already September? As we all know, September is that time of year where everyone goes back to school/college/uni and we begin the much anticipated warm up to hot chocolate, fluffy socks and CHRISTMAS. Fear not, don't run away, I'm not one of those crazy Christmas people who begins to prepare the following Christmas in January, its just something to think about...

Autumn is becoming apparent now, and leaves will soon be falling from the trees, boots and coats will be dusted off from last year, and we will all begin to say those forbidden words, 'I am so cold'. Alongside many, Autumn is one of my favourite times of year, particularly in terms of fashion. I am a huge fan of comfort over style (ironically) so Autumn gives me the perfect excuse to allow my baggy jumpers and checked shirts to pass as fashion pieces. So today, I thought I would share with you all my first composed AW17 look. Please e…
