Easter Sunday Lunch

I know I'm a day late but Happy Easter everyone and I hope you all had a lovely easter weekend. 

I was in Kingston visiting some family for the weekend and it was a much needed mini break away from studying lol. Yesterday afternoon we went to Holiday Inn for their Easter Sunday Lunch, it was an all you can eat buffet, Sunday roast to be exact! I really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere was lovely too, just a room full of families spending quality time together on a Easter afternoon.

Spring outfit #1

Today definitely felt like Spring! The sun was shining, there was a cool breeze and it's put me in such a good mood. I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to take some photos as the weather hasn't been nice for a while.. we've had sunshine here and there but it hasn't been consistent throughout the day like today. 

This is just a quick outfit I put together which is great for this weather, the blazer is light but not too bad that you'll get super cold if there's a breeze. I love the colour combination as well, you can't go wrong with pastel colours during a time like this.

Yesterday I reunited with 3 good friends of mine who I haven't seen in 6 years! We couldn't help but reminisce on all the good times we had and just how young we were when we last saw each other. We decided to do some shopping in Westfields and go for dinner afterwards, we had dinner at TGI Fridays which was really good. I took a few photos at the restaurant and we had a photo taken for old times sake lol.

It's officially Spring!

I know I haven't posted in almost 2 weeks.. apologies! Things are getting so busy at university right now, I have an exam very soon and a few more in May so you can only imagine how busy I have been. It's currently Easter holiday now and I've got a few things coming up which I'll be sharing with you here. Let's just say I'm in need of a weekend away and good company!

Wishlist #1

Here are some fashion items I've fallen in love with recently and would love to add to my wardrobe. These are all from different websites, let me just tell you that I am not one for online shopping.. I hate it lol. I'd much rather go into the store and try on the items, see what the quality is like, etc before I pay for them. The only time I would have to online shop is when websites like Asos or Missguided don't actually have stores lol.. which is okay I guess as I love the items on both websites! 

Love Sham x

International Women's Day!

Today is such a special day for all women out there, it's International Women's Day! I personally still have so much more to experience as a woman such as giving birth, getting a career as a woman and so much more. It's certainly not easy out there in the world and the older I become the more I see just how much a lot needs to change for women but it's amazing seeing what so many women are doing right now to make that change but we all need to contribute to that to make more of an impact. I never really used to see the importance of feminism or gender equality, that's the honest truth. I was one of those people who paid no attention to those issues whatsoever and carried on about my business but it was around a year ago that I saw a video of Emma Watson at the United Nations doing a speech on feminism and that's when I really woke up. Gender equality is still such a major issue and I pray that one day things really change. I won't go off on too much on a rant about that but I just wanted to touch upon it briefly. 

I think it's so important for women to empower one another. A lot of us want to be in competition with each other and constantly put each other down but for what? What's wrong with giving someone a compliment? Or encouraging and supporting someone to achieve something? I feel so strongly about this and it frustrates me when all that's plastered on someone's social media is hate. Ladies, let's stop this please. I get it, you don't have to like what everyone's doing but there's nothing wrong with little words of positivity.. you have no idea how this can make someones day. Also think about how this would make you feel if someone was to encourage you. 

I've been inspired by so many women in my life, the number one being my mum as I mentioned in my mothers day post. I could go on talking about how much she inspires me but this time I wanted to focus on other women who inspire me.

Happy Mothers Day!

I love mothers day, being able to go that extra mile for my mum makes me very happy. I don't believe in treating someone on a certain day like valentines day, mothers day, etc.. So much of that has been extremely commercialized! I like that me and my brother are able to treat my mum on days other than mothers day, Christmas or her birthday but I won't lie in saying there's something special about mothers day for her personally. This year we got her something small and unfortunately we weren't able to do anything big as she had to head off to Birmingham but I went to church with her this morning and me and my brother cooked her brunch which was so delicious and I'm still really full because of it lol.

Today really was a celebration for us, so many blessings are coming our way and it was the perfect time to celebrate that. For those who know me well know that my mother is my biggest inspiration, the strength that she has never ceases to amaze me. Her unconditional love and selflessness is so inspiring and I pray that god continues to bless her each and every day.. I love you mum.

February Favourites

This month I haven't been loving that much, a lot were pretty much the same from January but there are definitely a few that stood out for me in the month of February. Btw how is it March already?! I just can't seem to get over how quick time is going, ahhh!
