Style | Work It

Image
Hi, Back in 2017 I kind of let my work wardrobe go a little bit, it was a case of getting up and throwing something on before rushing out the door. By the time we had reached the Christmas break I realised that I was reaching for the same 6-7 dresses and just rotating them. I decided that this year I was going to give my work wardrobe a refresh but, without spending too much money. My main aim is to choose pieces that I can use with old items that I have in my wardrobe.  First up is this top from Lovedrobe*. I first saw this on Instagram and I fell in love with it straightaway, anything with a pleat is guaranteed to put a smile on my face! This top goes with so many items in my wardrobe, not just the grey pleated skirt i'm wearing here but, trousers and jeans. I can also add some accessories to make it work for an evening look as well. The top itself it is quite lightweight so, if you do feel the cold you can add a vest top underneath. I thought that sleeves mi

Lifestyle | Little Amsterdam

Hi!  What better way to brighten up my day than a text from my sister asking if Mr C and I want to go and eat pancakes! I couldn't type ''yes we would LOVE too'' fast enough! I had driven by Little Amsterdam lots of times, hoping that Mr C would take me but, as he doesn't like pancakes I eventually gave up all hope until I received the magic text.

Hi, This is so late but, Happy New Year! It been over 8 weeks since my last post, this was intentional. The last 4-5 months of 2017 were extremely stressful, a lot was going in all aspects of my life so, just before Christmas I decided that I would take a break from blogging until I was ready to start again. It's only in the last year or so that I have taken breaks from blogging, I always used to feel so guilty but, then I realised that it was affecting my posts. I would just be writing for the sake of it, most of the time it was forced because I felt that I had to get something out. I love blogging but, as its not a source of income for me I had to remind myself that it was okay to put it on the back burner and come back to it when I was ready. During my blogging break I've read more blogs, discovered new ones, read books, caught up on a lot of my favourite Netflix shows and spent a lot of time with Mr C. The result is that I feel better for it and have lots
