How are we all holding up today? I hope you're all feeling great and that your week has been successful. I am currently feeling pretty tired from exercising today, lol ye I have exercised. I am not one to exercise at all really, and I manage to eat so much processed crap without ballooning which I know seems bizarre. But as much as I love the easy lifestyle a high(ish)-metabolism creates, I feel like I need to start being a bit kinder to my body, so I've been working out recently in the hope my body will be thankful that I'm making a concerted effort to look after it. Anyway, in the essence of kindness, I've got a little bit of a charity themed post for ya'll today so please, grab a cuppa tea and enjoy this read. *grabs cuppa*

First and foremost, I must say I am digging this outfit. It's so me! Despite the fact this cardigan is super chunky and I will predominantly be wearing this over the winter months - something to look forward to - I have got to say, I think its great and the thickness is definitely not going to prevent me from wearing it at any opportunity. I'm especially loving the way it compliments my washed denim jeans as I think this colour combination works really well together. Also, as I am not a huge wearer of small, cropped tops, by adding this chunky knit I instantly feel a lot more confident about pulling off a cropped top because it leaves less flesh exposed. I am not typically someone who feels empowered by wearing very little, I am definitely more of a layering kinda gal. Comfort is so important to me when ensuring I feel great in an outfit, and I find being heavily exposed does not boost my confidence in any way. So this is knit is a great layering piece to add a bit of spice to a basic outfit!

Why do I look utterly concerned lmao

Charity shops. I suppose in a way, charity shops have a strange kind of stigma attached to them. Walking into a charity shop on the high street makes you feel as though you're super old, or super stingy. I don't really know to be honest, but there's something about charity shops that appears really off-putting and sort of daunting, particularly if you walk in alone. But in actual fact, we shouldn't fear the almighty charity shops, because they're great. Firstly, they're raising money that's going to incredible causes, and in the process, we are receiving recycled clothing for an inexpensive price - win win! Recycled clothing is awesome as in a society such as ours, we throw far too much away, so the opportunity to reuse and re-home a garment is essentially a good deed. To make this situ even better, we are giving money to charity, and receiving something back for ourselves...COULD IT GET BETTER? Yes. Yes it can. Not only do we get a cool piece of clothing with a bit of history, we also get it at a great price...£1 for this cardigan...ONE GREAT BRITISH POUND, HELL YEAH!

I hope this has been worthwhile of your time, and I'd love if next time you walk past a charity shop, you take a step inside and have a rummage. Who knows what hidden gems you might find.

| Going Back To Basics | 10/10/17 |

Gooood morning, and welcome back to the blog. Today, I wanted to share with you another post from my first fashion photo shoot. This outfit, I feel, is perfect for this transitional period, and is also verging on the smart side of fashion (for me anyway, lol). I really enjoyed piecing together this outfit, and trying to experiment with my personal style. As you all undoubtedly know, I often opt for the comfier garments and that aspect of my style definitely is portrayed through most of my blog posts. But equally, trying something new is exhilarating, particularly with Autumn homing into view so I want to diversify my wardrobe. I am loving the tailored look, and am growing fonder of fitted tops that enhance my body a lot more than a baggy tshirt or oversized jacket would.

Morning everyone, and welcome back to the blog. Today I wanted to share with you a very autumnal outfit, that I am dearly in love with. When it comes to planning outfits to shoot, it can honestly take me hours to complete a single look, but this outfit was a rarity in the sense I rustled it up in about twenty minutes, so I am thrilled with the outcome. As I mentioned in my last post, outfit planning and styling is definitely a love/hate situation for me, so finding an outfit that is fleeky with ease is a wonderful feeling.

So, lets begin with the coat. I am a huge lover of coats, and I am admittedly beginning to accumulate quite the collection of jackets and winter coats, however this is my newest addition to my wardrobe coat-wise, and I picked this up on the Asos website. This pea/military style coat is by New Look and was an incredible price of ab…

| 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…
