Hello everyone, Hope you are all doing well and had a lovely weekend. Hope you all got a chance to watch the royal wedding it was so beautiful, I enjoyed every bit of it. This…View Post
Hope you are all doing well, this week I am doing a little flashback posting a few pictures from when I’ve just started.
Few of the many reasons why I started blogging was because I wanted to go out more, get involved, push myself from my comfort zone doing it all with a bit of fashion, and to show people that it’s ok to do what they want, without letting fear taking control.
some of these pictures made me cringed a little lol, but hey it’s a learning process, and I am all for growth and learning more as I go along.
Let me know what you think in the comment section.
The main thing is that I am doing exactly what I wanted to do, still many rooms for improvements, but it comes with
time and I am in no rush.
Have yourselves a fantastic week.
Hope you all had a wicked weekend and ready for the new working week ahead, I have completed my first week back to work hooray! I am just taking it easy adjusting myself back into my busy routine, but I will get there eventually.
This week I am showing you how I styled my Kimono, if you’ve been out shopping chances are you will see these everywhere in various colours and lengths.
Kimonos can be worn in several different ways; you can dress them up with jeans, midi dress, shorts and you can even wear them to the beach as a cover-up, they can change up the look of an entire outfit, a very fun piece to have in your closet.
I will be wearing this piece a lot, so you will definitely see more of I how I will be styling it.
This is how I styled my kimono
I got this Kimono from H&m last year in the sales.
Thank you all for reading, and hope will you come and visit next Monday for another new post x.
Hope you are all doing well, feel like I haven’t had a real heart to heart conversation with you all for a while, so today I want to share something a bit personal.
As you may or may not know, I have been on maternity leave for ten months and returning to work this week. How did time go that fast? Just how?. As much as I like my job and my coworkers, I cannot say I am looking forward to returning. Each time I think about leaving Caydreen my heart sinks, but she will be in the best possible care and showered with love.
I am grateful for the fact that I don’t have to leave her with a complete stranger and she will be cared for within the comfort of her own home; this gives me peace of mind. I have been receiving so much love and support and despite my apprehension, I know things will work out. However, I need to adjust to this new routine and conquer any obstacles that arises.
I guess the way I feel is normal right?. The motherly instinct of being away from your baby just makes me think of all kind of crazy things.
Am I just being paranoid? Is it natural to feel this way? you would think it’s my first time doing this lol, all moms feel this way right? We have bonded so well over the last ten months I just can’t tell how we will both make it apart this week.
I am pretty sure there will be tears as I actually feel teary thinking about it, nonetheless, I am strong, I am a woman, I will be fine and Caydreen will be well taken care of.
So its time to ditch the loungewear, get up, dress up and show up.
I am grateful that I have a job to return to, a supportive husband and two amazingly beautiful girls, I thank Jah Jah every day.
To take my mind off things a bit, the family and I went out for a little wonder, and I treated myself to some new goodies from the Fenty beauty range and managed to take some pictures, obviously lol.
Quote for the week.
Sometimes you have to let go of your current situation in order to be ready for the next thing God has for you.
Leave me some tips and advice in the comment section.
Hello everyone, hope you are all doing well.
This week I am very excited to share with you something I discovered, this is mainly for the makeup guru’s because I know makeup is not everyone’s favourite and that is absolutely fine.
How terrible are you with achieving the perfect cat/winged eye?.
Well, my dearest I found something that is going to change that for you, stress-free.
I found this eyeliner; they called it the stamp eyeliner wing, and it makes things so much easier, if you are like me and watched countless youtube videos, trying to master the art of drawing two perfect precise little wings and still can’t get the hang of it, this will change it for you.
This is the easiest way to achieve cat/winged eye
The eyeliner has two tips.
A. felt-tip to define the eyes.
B. wing-shaped stamp for even flicks.
All you have to do is place tip B on the outer corner of your eye
And there is your wing, you will probably do a better job than me, but you get the idea, so all you have to do is use tip A to fill it in and make it more accurate.
I bought this from Superdrug for £5.95, but you can also get it from eBay and Amazon, go get yourselves one and thank me later.
Thank you all so much for reading.
Hello my Lovelies, How you all doing?.
Hope you are all keeping well.
This week we are talking about shoes, shoes that best fits your personality…which ones are you most comfortable wearing.
Heels are classics; they make your legs look slimmer, make an outfit look more stylish and polished, but for most women including myself it’s a love/hate relationship because 99% of them hurts, and we tend to choose style over comfort sometimes, not my favourite to wear, but I do love them.
Flats are all about style and comfort; more laid back, with the right pair they can make an excellent accessory for any outfit, they can take you to the office and straight to the pub for a drink, for me, I can say these are my favourite, so easy to move around in and they are pain-free.
Trainers/sneakers are so in right now; they are having a fashion moment, and I don’t think it’s changing any time soon, they can wear with almost every outfit, they are sassy, edgy and so street style chic, I absolutely love the trainer’s trend.
sandals suits just about anyone, there are so many different versions of sandals.
They can be casual and also glam, but I somehow feel like they are seasonal and can sometimes be the back shoes for the high heels, especially when you are on the dance floor, I love a good pair of sandals.
What kind of woman are you? comment and let me know which shoes are your favourite, I know it depends on the occasion, but if you could choose one to wear all the time, which one would it be?.
Thank you all so much for reading, appreciate the support.
Hello Lovelies, hope you are all doing well.
This week I’ve listed my top six favourite websites to shop online.
They are in no particular order.
Pretty little thing
I love shopping at pretty little thing; their website is easy to navigate, placing an order is very easy, the site is colorful and welcoming, it makes you want to shop, good quality clothes they have the cutest pieces, reasonably priced, delivery is fast and getting a refund doesn’t take long.
Mmmmm Asos, love this website variety of different brands to choose from, delivery is super quick, they cover all sizes.
Good quality clothes, they do clothing for men/women pieces are trendy and modern.
boohoo is one of my top six favourite places to shop online, their clothes are so reasonably priced, they do clothing for men/women/children, some of their materials can be a little bit tricky.
But if returned, they are quick with a refund, delivery is quick and their website is user-friendly.
Zara clothes are of good quality; the website is easy to navigate, their clothes are packaged beautifully, delivery is quick return can be a nightmare it’s a struggle, so that means refund takes a little time, pieces are modern and they are perfectly tailored.
Making my top six favourite places to shop online is misguided, their website is very easy to use, clothes quality are good, can say they got a bit pricey over the years, but you get what you paid for, returns and refund are quick, the pieces are sexy and trendy.
Mango I love this website just as how I love the actual fruit, pieces are unusual and perfectly tailored, the website is straightforward, delivery is quick, good quality pieces a keeper in my book.
Have I listed any of your favourites? Let me know in the comment section, have a fantastic week, and thanks for coming over.
Happy Easter Monday, hope you are all keeping well.
This week it’s all about ruffles, and how I styled it.
Before I start can I say how tall I look in these pictures, Cadrie is developing some excellent camera skills lol sshhhh!.
Don’t tell him I said that.
I never thought I would be wearing ruffles with one shoulder, a bit out of my comfort zone; I don’t like showing my arms off because to me I have big arms, but this look turned out great.
Ruffles are everywhere, and I found this piece on https://www.boohoo.com reasonable priced.
They are playful, girly, and add a focal point to any outfit.
Please note I am not a stylist, and I am not claiming to be, I am a girl that loves fashion and getting dressed up, it makes me feel good.
I styled this ruffle top with a skinny leather looking trousers.
It’s always best to keep the rest of your outfit plain when pairing with an outstanding piece
I also added a pop of color with the shoes, lifts the entire outfit a bit more.
What do you guys think about ruffles, Do you like it? Let me know in the comment section?.
Thank you all for reading and your continuous support.
Hello Everyone, hope you all keeping well
Bringing you lot of colors (pretty, pretty) on the blog this week and how to stay motivated.
It’s so hard to stay motivated; it’s like a challenge especially when you know you’ve tried your hardest, and things are not going according to plans.
I am going to list few things that keep me motivated, and hopefully, it might help someone that feels like giving up.
1. Make a list of all the things you want to achieve, start with the simple ones and then on to the longer term goals.
2. Celebrate yourself each time you have accomplished one of these goals, and that will motivate you to move on to the next.
3. Don’t be too hard on yourself; this can be so easily done without you even realizing that you are doing it if so take a step back and approach it differently.
4. When you feel like giving up, question yourself why you started in the first place.
5. Visualize the end goals and how rewarding and satisfying it will be when its all done.
6. Have a look or read about other people’s success stories their downfalls and comebacks and use that to motivate yourself, do this without comparing yourself to others.
7. Excercise, this is still working on, because I cannot keep myself motivated to work out on my own.
but now that Caydreen is a bit older I can drop her off at family members and then go the gym.
I used to be a frequent gym goer, and there is no greater feeling when you get a good workout, you just feel so refreshed and energized.
8. Be confident, believe and love yourself that whatever you set out to do, you will achieve.
Hope my list helps you to keep going and stay motivated, its hard but it can be done.
My dress is from https://www.boohoo.com, wishing you all a wonderful week.
Hello Lovelies, how you all doing?.
tell me please, hope you are all doing well, because I am frustrated, where is spring?
I feel so downhearted and fed up every time I looked outside and kept on wishing I was somewhere hot, lying on a beach, sipping on a cocktail, you with me lol?.
These past few days haven’t been the best, and each time I get my hopes up that spring is around the corner and I will be able to pull the barbeque out and start planting in the garden before I return to work, mother nature says its a NO, not yet.
This weekend I went out for the first time since having Caydreen, went on a little wedding anniversary date and it was snowing hard, so picture me walking in the snow with my two left feet lol, yes, I have two left feet, and I had heels on.
I can tell you my lovelies it wasn’t a nice sight, I was clutched under Cadrie’s arm, who kept on saying I need to walk a bit faster…you all tell me now!
I was so flustered, hair all over the place, my feet were aching and to only discovered that the restaurant was located on a little hill, are you keeping up with me?
Anyways, I made it there hot and bothered lol, and actually had a cocktail, not mocktail, the real thing, well deserved I think, I had in mind to take some lovely photos, and share with you guys, but to be honest, with everything I went through, I just couldn’t be bothered.
I wanted to live in the moment and enjoy my time being out baby free, which felt absolutely amazing.
Hoping to do some amazing content over the coming days, and thank you all so much for your support on my previous post, really do appreciate it.
Had this coat probably over five years now, can’t even remember where I got it from, but what a little gem, can’t go wrong with camel coats.
Hope you all had an amazing weekend, and wish for you a blue free Monday and a good rest of week
Thanks for reading.
