Happy New Year

Beret~Accessorize/ Top~Vintage/ Skirt~Primark

Hello loves and a very Happy New Year to you all.
I had a very relaxing start to 2017, spent cosy by the fire with my family and my bestie. Talking through the pros and cons of the year whilst sipping Prosecco that had lost its fizz and Jools Holland in the background- the usual.
I don't want to speak too soon, but so far so good and despite the chill that ever so often arrives in January, I am in very high spirits. 

So, to kick of new beginnings in 'style', here are a few snaps of  me in one
of my favourite comfy outfits, a bright red lip and a trusty beret.

I hope you had a lovely new year and would love to hear what you got up to.

Lots of love always

Summing up 2016

Oh 2016, what a year it certainly has been. As we all know it has had a series of highs and lows, but rather than dwindling on the bad bits of the past 12 months, I have decided to focus on all of the positives. This year my resolution was to not miss opportunities and I certainly feel that in doing this and saying 'YES' to more things, that I have become much more confident in myself and proved that nothing is as scary as it seems.
So after a year full of adventures, turning 25, moving from the city to the country, seeing sun and snow and almost falling in love-here are my annual highlights.

This year I really had the travel bug, and after months of saving all of my wages for holidays, I was lucky enough to visit some of the most beautiful places.
Places ticked off this year.....
  • Izmir
  • Israel
  • Fethiye
  • Prague
  • Vienna
  • Budapest
  • Poland
I am very much hoping that 2017 will be filled with just as much time up in the air and exploring new and lovely cities and coasts.

I always like to do a bit of a round-up of my yearly outfits, it is nice to document the garments I have worn to death and the places I was when wearing them. I feel my style has definitely gone a little more colourless the past few months and I really want to bring back some vibrancy and patterns in the new year. 
Flowers and Friends
As usual, this year has been made complete by all of the beautiful people around me. My family and friends have been the absolute best this year and I couldn't ask for more special and lovely people to be surrounded with daily. 
Flowers are a big big part of my life, from growing them and watering them to hanging, drying and pressing them- they have been a wonderful addition to each day. I hope to gather and create many more bits and bobs with them in the coming year. Until my house is filled to the brim with petals.
We can never tell what the coming year will bring, but I hope it will be just as eventful as the last. 
I am aiming to carry on 1920's dancing, learning Turkish, discovering more music and completing my pharmacy exams.
But above all of that, to be kind and free. Oh, and maybe give up the ciggies.

Happy New Year Beauts
Lots of love always

Boxing Day: Gathering Wood

Hat~Vintage/Shirt~Zara/Skirt~New Look

Merry Christmas everyone....well I guess now it is technically Boxing day, but I like to stretch the day out for a further week or so.

Yesterday was filled with absolute joy, presents, board games and a mammoth feast that I had worked on baking for a few days. But it definitely paid off, to see my lovely families faces and to spend quality time with them just chilling and being a bit lavish for once. 

However, the day after Christmas, having been cooped up in a cosy warm room for 24 hours previously, we always take a big walk on Boxing day. This year we ventured up to the Moors and walked around the woods and a huge half-frozen lake. It was truly spectacular visually and walking off all of those roast potatoes and trifles, made stomping in streams and mud that bit more fun. 

Dressed in black and white whilst picking up logs for the fire, I felt like a real old-fashioned Yule Tide lady. When you go to places like the Moors you kind of lose all sense of time and space- but in the most wonderful way. 

I cannot wait to see in the New Year and embrace what it has to offer. 

Speak soon
Lots of Love Always
