L I F E | Vine.


   

Not one for thinking about doing YouTube (too cringe for me to talk in front of a camera) but I have been enjoying a bit of vine. A little #ootd and my new fave grid bags. Enjoy my attempt's which I think I need to improve on.

I N S P I R A T I O N | Metallic.

Source: tumblr, Pinterest, Vogue.co.uk

Having spotted metallic clothing among various high street stores (River Island in particular) it got me thinking that this would be a trend I would really like. It has a Christmas feel to it and seems the perfect touch to a winter wardrobe. Gold and silver are not exactly in the 'bright' colour zone so it happily fits into my style. Winner really. I have also been drawn to embellishment and checks are everywhere again. Yay for A/W dressing again.

L I F E | Instagram #12


#fromwhereistand photo's are becoming my thing. So easy to snap half an outfit so that is what my Insta is consisting of at the moment. Last week I bought a selection of items from the argan oil range from the BodyShop because I have such dry skin and it turns out Argan oil is the best of the best to solve it - but a post on that will be soon. I have just come back from a rehearsal tonight. Basically I am taking part in my hometown's 'Miss Mansfield' competition. It all kind of happened unexpectedly and I thought life is too short to let experiences go by. The most exciting thing about it is the fact that I have to plan outfits and make a dress. And the equally most important thing about it is that I get to involve myself in a charity which I want to raise money for if I did win. As much as I blog, buy things etc - I want my life to mean more than being materialistic because that really is not all me. I have a History degree and could tell you all 50 states of America - and if I did win I get a trip to Ohio! Most of all though it is good to do something out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself. I'll probably go into more details the more I 'life' blog. Wish me luck.

I N S P I R A T I O N | The sling back peep toe.

Zara (source tumblr)

If I was to have a classy everyday shoe then give me the Zara sling backs. Sometimes I think I have so many chunky shoes that I don't actually have a more 'smart' shoe to wear on smart casual occasions, so this really would be the one. I have spotted similar ones here from New Look. Also I still think Missguided have done a good job on these chunky peep toes.
