I love fashion but I find it difficult to write about clothes, I am sometimes tempted to post my pictures and go. I follow some amazing fashion bloggers who give detailed descriptions of the ideas behind their outfits and I admire their ability to deeply describe something I see as quite simple. Unless I am styling someone else or styling for a photoshoot my shopping process is as … Continue reading Spring Fashion trends
I love all forms of genuine declarations of love and truth be told I love presents even more, but none of these things solely happens on valentines day so why all the fuss? Contrary to your presumption, this post is not to condemn the celebration of valentines but to shine a light on why it really isn’t a big deal, why you shouldn’t put pressure on your significant other to do it and why it’s ok to ignore it and spend the day like any other day.
If you have watched my video on the dos and don’t for valentine’s day, you would know that I’ve had my fair share of good and terrible valentines. I recently discovered that my opinion on valentine’s day generally fluctuates depending on one factor which is satisfaction.At this moment, I am satisfied with love, so much so that I can happily ignore the season of love without feeling left out. Truth be told I am not sure how I reached this state of mind but I can only attribute this feeling to being frequently shown love in multiple ways by my Husband. Well done babe you are doing an amazing job, anyway, moving on swiftly because I find talking about myself super awkward. If your partner expresses his/her love for you on a regular basis, is it really fair to demand that they take part in the valentines celebration if it is not something they believe in? If you have no doubts regarding their feelings for you, what does a few chocolate and flowers really do for you? Whilst these things are nice, is it worth having unnecessary arguments with your partner about. I employ you to think about the questions above and come to your own personal conclusions. Whilst I might not believe it’s a subject worth having an argument about, it is ok to think otherwise.
A quick update before we get into this blog. I am studying at the moment, so my life is pretty much about reading academic journals and attending lengthy lectures which can be very boring. I exaggerate, it’s not all bad and I am learning and gaining some useful skills (just in case, somehow one of my lecturers reads this). After a year out from education, … Continue reading “Marriage is a happy imprisonment” Discuss
It’s that time of the year again, after Christmas, when we all start doing a little bit of reflection, it’s a bit corny if you ask me. I say that but I’m probably going to do the exact same thing, hypocritical or what? Jokes aside, we live our lives without a care for a good 360 days and then BAM in the last weeks of … Continue reading How to recover from a “bad” year?
Ladies do we really need a new outfit this Christmas or is there something in our closet that will do? If you are anything like me, you look for excuses to buy something new…birthdays, dinners, work socials and even church. I gave myself the challenge to shop wisely this year and to only buy things that could be multi-purpose. This means I should be able … Continue reading Outfit and makeup ideas for Christmas
I have been quiet on the blog lately, this is partly due to my new found love for Instagram. I am currently obsessed with my feed. Occasionally, I summarise my thoughts in a brief sentence. These qoutes can be thought-provoking, insightful or just funny. It is a lot easier than writing a blog post, there is no pressure. I don’t have to worry about the quality … Continue reading Instagram has become my new creative outlet.
It’s a common saying that “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results is a sign of madness,” so why do we always find ourselves back to square one? Lets be real, how many times have you said you will never do something again but you’ve ended up doing that same thing, for example; “i’m never drinking again!” after a heavy night … Continue reading Back to Square one.
