The Midi Dress

Midi dresses are THE trend for Spring/Summer, and there's no denying you have to own one. Whether you like it edgy, quirky or pretty, there is a midi dress out there for you! I've picked out a few and shown you how you can wear them, so there's no excuses girls! 

Midi dresses can be super flattering worn in the right way! If you're slim you can pull of this black body con midi from Topshop, or if you're curvy like me then you're more suited for the paisley print halter-neck midi from Warehouse. Find out your body shape and work it out from there! 

Midi's are nice and light for the hot weather or layered up when chilly. Worn with heels or flats, a jacket or gilet, accessorized or simplistic - you cannot go wrong with this seasons must have item!

Be the person you want to be.


That's right. Things change. And for me, a lot has changed in the last few months. This post is all about inspiring you to do the things you've always thought about doing, in order to get you where you want to be. 

Six months ago, I was working in the same retail job I'd been in for two years, which I was perfectly satisfied with at the time. I was in a happy relationship and I was going through a good gym routine and feeling confident with my body. Since then, I was almost made redundant, broken up with the boyfriend, struggling to find time and motivation to get to the gym, and worrying that time is ticking and I'm still no where near where I want to be, career wise. I realised that I'd pretty much done nothing with the past year of my life. Right now I am at my prime stage of doing something about it. 

As a newly single woman (well, girl), I know now I can move to London and pursue my career dreams over there, because there is nothing holding me back anymore. I'm applying for interns, began looking into accommodation over there and contacting people I was too afraid to before. Although I'm not there yet, I know I'm getting closer and all I have to do is keep trying and stay positive.

So what is it you want to do?


Perhaps you're like me and interested in a career in fashion? Or would prefer journalism, retail, media, music? No matter what you want to do, it all works the same way. This day and age, if you don't have experience, you're not going to get anywhere. For some jobs, you don't need a degree. Just enthusiasm and experience. I don't think you need me to tell you what to do to get that experience. You already know. Get out there, send out your CV, volunteer in the evenings or on weekends, whatever. You know what you have to do, but you need to be willing and I promise it'll be worth your while one day. If you're not sure what you need to do, send me a comment/message/tweet and I'll be happy to advise! 

If it's not a career you're wanting to work towards, perhaps you're simply looking for new and exciting challenges? Perhaps you're very happy with your job but are seeking something exciting to take on in your life. Maybe you'd like to do a little travelling, or have always wanted to go bungee jumping, or wanted to get back into dance classes, or write your own book. Whatever it is, write it down, set some goals, work out when you'd like to have done it by, and "just do it". 

Remember, the key to life is happiness.

It's Spring!

Hello my lovely readers! I'm so sorry I haven't been blogging very well recently, started my new job and just seem to have no time at the moment. Below you will see my new brogue sandles from Office (still available to buy if you love them!) They are £45 :) so comfortable though! They're made of real soft leather so they are ultra comfy to spend your spring days in! I was just keeping it casual this day with my leather jeans, pink jumper and a cosy scarf. 

So, it's finally Spring and the weather is slowly getting a little sunnier. I can't wait to start chilling in the sun with friends, capturing beautiful blossom trees, applying some gradual tan, going on bike rides, painting my nails bright spring colours and reading my book in the back garden.

What are you looking forward to this Spring?

I only had two Easter eggs this year! A galaxy one that the male models from Bristol Fashion Week bought me to say thank you, which was so kind of them! And this Thorntons one below that the Producer of the show bought me to say thank you, also. (It stands for Bristol Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2013, in case you didn't guess!) I'm actually still in the middle of eating this one! Yum yum yum. 


So life isn't very interesting at the moment. I've just started my job at Topshop (either this or redundancy). It's okay but not really how I want to spend the rest of my life :( I'm constantly applying for fashion related jobs and work experience and day dreaming about how I want to move to London and begin my big fashion career over there. But nothing seems to be happening for me at the moment. God, this is such a depressing paragraph. Sorry, but gotta get it all out in the open! 

And if that isn't enough, I'm having to deal with healing my broken heart. Two months have gone by and don't feel like I've made any progress. So any advice on getting over someone would be fantastic! Hope you're all having a lovely week! :)
