So as you know I’ve not really been posting a lot in this video I try to say what’s going on at the moment.
When things aren’t always as they seem with people and life, my siblings have always been there for me. Regardless of one of them being away at uni, they always know how to cheer me up. My sister did this yesterday. Tensions ran high and tempers frayed within my social circle but my sister seemed to make me laugh and while we made our silly little video it made me realise that you have to value those close at hand. Your family. You have your ups and downs like any family but I wouldn’t trade mine for the world.
With the amount of roll necks I own I thought it was fitting to do a video on How I style turtle necks/roll necks whatever you want to call them. I have a good 11/12 and I love every single one. I just love how sophisticated they make an outfit and that they are so easy to layer over. I have one in nearly every colour. I’m on the look out for a green one as this is pretty much the only colour I don’t own. In my video I’ve done 5 outfits that are casual and 2 that are more formal looking. Click the image below to see a bigger picture of the outfits.
My favourite outfit has to be number 4 and number 5. I adore my tartan kimono along with my black Topman ribbed roll neck teamed up with my big wide brim fedora hat. Outfit number 5 has to be my go to outfit. It’s so easy to wear and just so me. My rust coloured roll neck ties this whole look together.
Which is your favourite?
Having purchased a long line shirt from H&M I wanted to try to create a different outfit to what I’m used to doing. My style is always refined and a little bit goody two shoes. I want to start branching out to the grungy side of fashion and take aspects of that aesthetic and implement it into my fashion. I imagined an outfit that was a little bit edgier than what I’d normally do. Which is where I want my style to go. I want to try new things and see if they suit me, like the risk I took with this long line shirt. I didn’t think long line shirts would suit me only being 5ft 7 and half but I really dig this grid print shirt and I most certainly will be buying more. I did intend to film this video on the park near me but due to vandalism it was closed so I had to quickly change my ideas and this popped to mind. I was totally going for the grunge aesthetic here.
So it’s been a while since I last did a haul showcase. With Christmas you don’t really get much to spend on yourself but that’s the beauty of January. December is all about giving and making other people feel special. January is all about the sales and spending that extra on yourself. I thought I had purchased a lot more than what I had in this video but clearly not. However the pieces I’ve purchased I really love.
I’ve also not really wrote about meeting a guy. So I will do so now. I’ve met a guy, his name is Tom and we’ve been seeing each other for a while now. He’s seriously made me smile from date one back in the beginning of December, meeting half way in Cannock in a little restaurant was the first among many dates, many smiles and many butterflies.Our second date consisted of us meeting in Cannock again for a walk in Cannock Chase (Massive woodland) We sat upon a log for hours under my umbrella shielding us from the torrential rain that was coming down. We talked about random things and this was where I felt so much closer to him and instantly I knew I was going to fall for him. We then went for food and talked even more. I just couldn’t wait to see him again. Our 3rd date consisted of a hotel stay and my gosh was it amazing. Food and more talking it was just the perfect 3rd date.
With the colder weather now forecast for the UK I thought it was time to embrace for the few coming weeks of wintry weather. The weather for this time of the year has been unseasonable warm to say it’s “winter”, so in that respect we’ve been quiet lucky with that. But as you all know by now I hate winter. I hate being cold even the thought of being cold sends a shiver down my spine. So every year I prepare myself the best I can by finding out just how many layers I can get away with underneath a slim fitting coat. This year has been no exception. Buying things from last years sale and things early on in the season I think I’m about ready for this cold snap the UK are about to endure.
Here are my Winter Essentials:
So it’s 2016 and I want to really take my fashion blogging and YouTube more seriously. So from now on I vow to write at least 2-4 blog posts a week and 1 video on YouTube.
I talk about it in this video as well as what I got up to on New Year and a very special announcement ♥
So I got tagged by the lovely Jared Koon’s here is the link to his wonderful YouTube Channel where he does all sorts of cool things: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-NDMV6aL6v4FWesCuDWE4w
I know I’ve done a video very similar to this which is “What’s In My Wardrobe? but I thought what the hell I might aswell do this one too!
I hope you enjoy….
So after the disaster of not having enough lights for our monster tree, I went and purchased some more lights to make sure our tree shone like the brightest star. With the help of my mom, who hobbles into shot half way through we make sure Christmas is full in force at the Heywood househould.
After feeling really rubbish for the past week and a half. Being ill and having so much stuff bringing me down, it was so nice to actually record a video and get back into the swing of things. From now on if I ever feel down or anything I most certainly will channel the emotion into something that I started with all that emotion just under a year ago.
It was also way too cold and windy outside today so, I decided to take advantage of my newly painted room to do this video. These are just some of my favourite outfits for Winter.
