This throw over sheer kimono is from BOOHOO, I have it in white aswell. But I could literally wear this with all my outfits. All seasons round item; I would say this kimono is one of my faves.
It’s been nearly a year since I’ve written anything. So many things can happen in a year or even a couple of months. Time tends to fly by and we get slapped in the face and wrapped up in our own little bubble with the existence we call ‘Life’. We are learning and evolving every day. Have you ever thought you was happy in a relationship, when actually you wasn’t the whole time? I mean I think we do see the red flags at the beginning stages of meeting/dating someone. We just tend to ignore them and give them all the chance. We all love chances, but as a dear friend of mine would say…
Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice shame on me.
I LOVE IT ! Please lovely ladies, don’t ignore your sadness and don’t allow someone to make you feel like you are crazy or tell you that you are sad because of other reasons; stand your ground and find the root of what is making you feel that certain way and speak up! Be heard girlfriend. We can fall in love with a controlling selfish lover or with someone who just doesn’t want to hear your voice. Don’t just settle for anything and know your worth. I always have a gut feeling but I never go with it, I will do now, trust me haha! I’m starting to learn that I’ve always knew what was right for me, but I lacked in power and lost my strength to speak up. It will take time to find your full power or maybe you have that strength already, if so, make sure every decision you make is for you and you know that it will bring long term happiness.
This outfit is PRETTY LITTLE THING. This is a Co-ord; skirt and blouse. I do love the print but the skirt is quite thin material so if I re-wear the skirt in the winter I will have to put some tights on or over the knee boots with it. The blouse you can wear all seasons round, especially in winter with a pair of jeans but I’ve just tied it in a knot for a this summer look. P.s I was in Marrakech two weeks ago.
I went through my first break up (I’m sure you’ve all been there before). I feel like everyone should experience heart break because it really has strengthened me in all aspects in my life. I now will always speak my mind and make sure I am doing what I want to do. I was with an emotionally abusive partner and I was unintentionally or intentionally put down and made to feel I had no say in my relationship. I was ignored and ignored for 2 years and a half, and i only realised I was until I left the the relationship. HOW!? How was I so blind? I guess we can be blinded by love; unhealthy love can just really leave some bruises on our hearts. I became addictively co-dependent and I never thought I would have due to my strong independence before my relationship; I guess this is where we learn our lessons. The process of breaking up was not fun but I can admit I now feel free. I wouldn’t say I hate or despise my ex because I’ve learnt everything I need to know for myself and I now know how to keep strong and keep my power and self worth. No one should gain the power to bring you down unless you hand it to them. So we cant blame anyone else but ourselves.

I’ve been trying to find a lot of me time recently and it hasn’t been the easiest when I’ve been at work everyday for 9 hours, 6 days a week. I feel slightly suffocated when I’m around the same people 24/7, it can be hard to be patient with different people, as we are all trying to get to know each other still. I am only 2 months in to my contract and it’s been hard to let people in bit by bit when i know i have to spend the next 18 months with them. It’s always natural to make a closer bond with a couple of people, as its human. I think it’s important to stick to those natural connections and surround yourself with those people who you feel closer with because they will keep you smiling. I also think it’s important to keep that effort with the rest of your employees because it is polite and it should really not affect your own energy.
I learnt that I need to make sure i do a couple of things a week that keep me in track with myself, even if its spread out during the week and i go for that coffee date or cinema trip to just forget about work and zone out. I realised I really neeeed this! We all need to just find that calm in all of the drama in our crazy life. Ah, i read about our every day shower can be therapeutic, as in we rush and make getting ready just a casual routine and it’s always rushed for us to get out of the house. But if you really try to make sure you make enough time to enjoy your shower and get ready, with some music in the background, feeling the water against your skin. Showering should be therapeutic, make it part of the day where you just you can’t wait to shower or bathe. Make it a breather for you to wake yourself up or to wind you down after a long day. Showering should be one of your favourite times of the day!
I bought a rose quartz crystal and a dream catcher last week sunday. The rose quartz represents unconditional love and self-love, so I’m trying to really work on self-love this year by just really appreciating who i am and realising that i am beautiful and sexy. I mean I found it very strange to even write that down. So, women there is always a start, get that pen and paper and write it down. See how you feel, say it aloud and see how you feel. We have to work on actually feeling it without becoming arrogant, but single ladies once you embrace that beauty you will find your match. Surprisingly, it all goes down hill again when you get into relationships because you want to just impress your partner naturally and be that sexy lady, but that is all just your natural thoughts going crazy. Just stay calm because your man is with you because you are sexy and beautiful, embrace it.
I was browsing around the shops with my friend and decided to just buy clothes to go out that night; this is not the first time I’ve just bought clothes there and then and changed in the changing rooms for the night. I mean we wasn’t dressed indecent, but we just wanted something to wear straight away to hit the bars. Please tell me, we are not the only ones who have done this? So we got some bottles and then went back to hers to get ready and then we didn’t even leave the house!!! Hilarious, we just sat there drinking and chatting to her house mate. It was so perfect, with our favourite tunes in the background. So women, always go with the flow because now i have a spare sexy outfit ready for a cheeky night out. I feel this is going to be the norm whilst travelling. Woopsy!
We need to get out more often. Be free.

Is it just me or do you all who write blogs or love reading blogs, love drinking tea whilst doing so? Maybe wine.
Bringing new-ness into 2018. I really want to try/do new things in my spare time. I want to keep my energies running free with all the amazing things there are in life. I think going on tour next year will give me the opportunity to change things up and go with the flow. I want to be able to make sure i tell myself everyday that i am capable of all the tasks i take on, and i think you sexy women are too. We can do this, we can make next year the best year we want it to be. I know everyone says, “why does it take New Years for people to change their ways”, no, we will continue to be the amazing women we are but we are going to add extra amazing assets to our life and personality. I just want to smileeeeeee everyday! Which is impossible. Nothing is impossible, but life is not easy. If life was easy, we will have everything we needed and be lazy as hell!
Make sure you bring that full you into 2018, lets not hold back on thoughts and feelings. Let embrace every situation and be in control of how we react to these situations. Staying calm when you think a storm is about to blow. When you stay calm in stressful situations, you win! Be in control of yourself, there is actually no reason why we should not. No one can control us, right!
Shall we try and be nicer to the people around us and start giving off nice gestures as much as possible. It doesn’t just bring positivity to you but it makes you a stronger/beautiful women. Lets just be excited about the amazing person that we are all going to be next year! Lets dress up everyday and show them how we run our own catwalk, we have our own runway and we are going to run that walk. Yes yes yes! I’m feeling so inspired and i love that feeling. We don’t just have that simple career, simple love and simple family. We are not simple. Please try and travel as much as you can next year and do the biggest thing you’ve ever wanted to do, save up and do it!
Can we just eat, and live how we want to live. Lets not stress this year about how we look because i think this year really set me high on emotions from all those fake instagram post. It’s crazy, we don’t all have to look social media acceptable. It’s all rubbish. You in that mirror is acceptable. I’m going to eat and drink what i love, but in moderations. I’m going work out 3 times a week and chill the hell out! We can’t spend years of our life missing out on that cake we wanted! I’m currently laughing at my own joke. Laugh more.
We Like To Party !!
Lets smile, one more day left of 2017!
Everyone always has mixed views about this topic. I want to start with online shopping, as I’m usually all over the place. I personally love to shop online. It’s so easy to use and it has every single retail store worldwide with most of them available to ship internationally or all over the eu. Which is amazing! There’s all these only online shopping retail websites now, ie; Missguided, In The Style, Pretty Little Things, how can i forget ASOS. Yes, Missguided did recently open a few high-street stores in the UK. A few people told me they are seasonal with high-street shopping. I’m assuming more people are high-street shopping when the weather is nice, or when the streets are looking festive, that’s when I love to shop! Lie, I shop every day/every second I get, maybe not buying clothes everyday but I just love scanning through clothes. Now and then I do love running around in huge shopping malls, but I try to hit those non-peak times because I can’t stand too much people in my way.
Wouldn’t we all love it, if we could have the entire shopping mall all to ourselves. Getting out with friends/lovers are also a reason why we do love high-street shopping, it can make a really fun day out, especially around this time when you’re christmas shopping for others with friends. Sometimes we just don’t have any time to go walking about or to get that retail therapy in; so we thank apple for all our new hi-tech devices that we have now; giving all those hand tied people who can’t get out the opportunity to still get that banging outfit for the week-end. I mean, I bet a few of you guys just love a time consuming browse, why not!
I really think the idea of online or high street shopping depends on how we are feeling or if we physically have time too. They both benefit you in ways, but I personally would advise you to try and get some time and take yourself, on a date and browse those high-street stores you love, even if you don’t purchase anything/ don’t have the money, its okay. It’s very therapeutic to just roam around lost in your own thoughts. Have fun and go play!
JUST DO WHAT YOU LOVE TO DO, FORGET THE REST
Just expressing some thoughts.
Exploring and travelling is a great way to find who you are. I moved to Germany 3 years ago to work. OMGOSH, that feeling before moving to another country; away from family and friends; was not cute, it was freaking my head out. I thought I wan’t strong enough to do something like this. Something in me said “you have to do this, go and live”. That was it, in a blink of an eye I was in Germany learning how to skate and was taught how to sing in another language. Crazy, right! The things we put our minds too, its all possible.
The main focus of this blog is not the people you leave; because they already love the real you; but the people you meet. It’s so exiting meeting new faces, it’s one of my favourite things to do. When you engage in conversations with people you don’t know, you’ll end up naturally exploring the simple questions that they are asking you about yourself, questions that you’d never sit down and think about. The questions they ask you and the way you respond is the real you. You may be shy or excited, but that’s how you naturally socialise. Your reactions to new people is your natural instincts, some people protect and some people are open, we are all different and amazing! This is us out of our own comfort zone, challenging the true inner self, ahhhh it’s all so exciting to me!
Do we naturally judge? Do we like judging before we meet people?
I don’t think people judge in spiteful way (Lets not be negative, if they haven’t even offended you, if so, then that’s their issue, not yours), I think it’s natural to judge people and we always seem to melt to the people that remind them of ourselves. Remember, you don’t need to impress people because they will naturally enjoy your energy, flare and in the end they will surround themselves around you with out you even trying. Smiling is always a warm welcome to people. Don’t rush trying finding out about people lives, you really don’t need to. The beautiful souls that you find interesting will naturally open themselves to you. We are not silly, our bodies know straight away when somebody makes us feel comfortable. Just enjoy it, LOVE meeting new people. Tell yourself that you LOVE meeting new people.
