fashion, lifestyle and more!

And just like that, another year is coming to an end. I'll never get used to how quick times goes, it's scary when you think about it. I write these posts at the end of the year so that I can reflect on what I've learnt. 2017 was a very.. interesting year, that's the first word that comes to mind when I think of what this year was like.

I'll be honest as I can be.. this year was not a good year for so many reasons. There are only 2 things that stand out to me that were amazing moments and great achievements for me but I'll share that in a moment. The reason I say that this year was not good, is due to some family issues that went on which I can't get into but it effected so much. I don't want to put a negative downer on this post but I just want to be real, it's easy to say that overall things were fine but the truth is they weren't. 

I guess what comes with another year, comes more lessons and blessings. 

I'll get into more of the positive things about this year though. One of the biggest achievements from this year was graduating. I've written quite a bit about my university experience, it wasn't an easy experience at all and at one point.. well, more than one point, I didn't think I'd actually get to the end for so many reasons. For example, I had to retake one of my exams and an assignment so I didn't get to graduate with the rest of my class but I got there in the end. It was such an emotional day but so rewarding, it was good to know that all that hard work paid off.

Another big thing that happened for me this year was getting a full time job! I was so blessed to get this job, it all happened quite quickly and I wasn't expecting to get into full time employment so soon after finishing my degree. I've been working in Recruitment since July and honestly, it's been such a good experience. I work with such great people and feel so fortunate to actually enjoy what I do too lol. I never thought of getting into Recruitment as a career but I'm excited to see where it takes me.


My friend has inspired me to do something in the New Year. We've set ourselves 12 things to do in the 12 months of 2018, for example going to a rooftop cinema in August or going to a food festival in July. We also made a list on what what we'd like to achieve, 12 personal goals! I think this is such a good way to spread out what you'd want to get done during each month of the year and I advise everyone to make their own little list.

I'm wishing everyone a very positive, prosperous, all round great year!

What I love about Winter..

I can't tell you how much I love Winter. As much as autumn is my absolute favourite season, Winter comes second to that.

Black and Grey

So today's post is a simple autumn/winter outfit. As you all may know, I love A/W fashion, it's so versatile and I get so much inspiration to put different items together and I love sharing them especially here on my blog.

An afternoon in Windsor

Just like that.. it's Monday again. I really wish I didn't feel so negative about Monday's but no one wants the weekend to end right? Speaking of the weekend.. I went for lunch with some of my work colleagues to a restaurant in Windsor and of course I had to share it with you guys.

Fenty Beauty - Honest Review!

I'll be honest, when I initially heard about Rihanna releasing a make up line I wasn't that fussed.. don't get me wrong though, I bloody love the girl! It was only when she released the ad and photo's showing the variety of foundations that I was like, yeah take my coins.

Graffiti wall

So as you may have seen from previous post.. me and my best friend went to London over the weekend. We went to Nottinghill towards the end of our journey to take some photos of the area, of course I had to get some outfit shots done. On our way back to the train station I saw this grey graffiti wall and thought it would be the perfect back ground for my outfit that day!

A girls day out in London!

So let's address the elephant in the room.. it has been almost 4 months since I last posted on here. 4 months! I can't believe it but I'll be honest, it was done on purpose for many reasons but the important thing is I'm back :)

I won't be posting much only because I don't have the time anymore but I've missed blogging so much that I'm just going to post as of when I can. On that note.. Let's get into today's post!

Better days are coming!

Now that I've finished university, one of my biggest aims for this summer is to get back into being more consistent with my blog posts. I have a holiday coming up on Tuesday so apologies in advance for any lack of posts during the next week! However after that I promise it will be nothing but consistency. So let's get into today's post.. Recently I've come to a realization about so much due to situations that have happened to me and I want to share some advice/tips with you.

Current favourite music..

Oh how I've missed blogging. Apologies to anyone who's been wondering why I haven't been posting but I've got all the time in the world right now to put out so much content and I'm excited to share it all with you. I just wanted to make a quick post on my current favourite music, I haven't been doing monthly favourites because apart from music, there just hasn't been a lot I've liked so I thought why not dedicate a post purely to the music I like right now.

Met Gala 2017 - my fav outfits!

So last night was this years annual Met Gala ball and I was so excited to see all the amazing outfits people would be wearing. I did this post this time last year as well where I talked about my favourite outfits from the 2016 Met Gala so I thought why not do the same this year!

Discovering your style..

I think a lot of us have had the struggle of trying to figure out what our personal style is. It's easier for some than others but we all get there eventually, I can definitely say that I've finally discovered what my style is and I'd like to share with you just a couple tips on how you can discover your own personal style. A friend of mine actually inspired me to write this post, we were talking about discovering your own style and who's the inspiration behind the way we dress.I figured why not turn this into an actual post for anyone out there who feels they haven't discovered their own personal style yet.

February Favourites..

Hey guys! I hope you're all well, so I'm back with a favourites post. I think it would be good for me to say that I don't post monthly favourites every month purely because there isn't anything new I find and love every single month but when I do, I like to share it with you guys because these are posts I like to look at from other bloggers. Let's get into it!

Creating a good Instagram theme!

Since starting my blog, I figured that I needed to make some changes to my Instagram page. All the bloggers I followed, from small followings to big followings had very appealing Instagram themes. A few of my friends have actually complimented me recently on how much my Instagram has improved and how good the theme is and they've asked me for tips on how I've achieved this. It inspired me to just write a post on what I did to improve my Instagram theme in case anyone else out there wants to do the same.

Street style!

I'm back again with another outfit post guys! This one is inspired by street style, I absolutely love street style, fashion by itself allows you to express your style but I think street style takes it to another level. If you go on Pinterest or Lookbook, you'll see exactly what I'm talking about. The outfit I've put together is quite simple and I'm sure you've seen others pulling this off but I adore this look! It's effortless and 100% falls into my type of personal style. I'll definitely be sharing more street style outfits in the future so keep a look out but let's get into these photos..

Golden Globes 2017 - My fav outfits!

Hey guys! So the Golden Globes were on the 8th of this month and one thing I look forward to the most when it comes to any red carpet event are the outfit. As someone who loves fashion, it's always nice seeing all the gorgeous gowns that are worn by the ladies, I mean we can't forget the men either, I saw some really nice tux's! Ryan Gosling stood out the most I must say lol.
