Spring outfit lookbook and a little catch up

Wednesday, March 05, 2014


In order to ring the changes around here and keep things interesting (ha) I filmed a short outfit vlog to talk you through what I'm wearing. I've heard other fashion bloggers call them 'lookbooks' but I have no idea why; no pages involved. Making little videos is something that I wish to work on and would love you to subscribe to my Youtube channel!

Jacket - blog sale, jumper and skirt - charity shops, tights - Primark, boots - Amazon, necklace - no idea

Things have been a bit up and down in the last couple of months; we've had a few deaths in the family (nobody that close) and winter usually plays havoc with my motivation. My posting frequency dropped to an all-time low as juggling everything just wasn't working and secretly I've been having something of a crisis of confidence not only about my blog but in my abilities in pretty much everything. I've talked before about my lack of self-esteem which has rocketed skyward in the last year or so (to around average, I guess) but my trust in my capabilities has always been low. At school I was reasonably intelligent, being put in the top sets for graded subjects and achieving good but not astonishingly great marks, however my common sense and natural ability to understand concepts and instructions has always been dreadful. It seems if I can possibly grasp the wrong end of the stick, I do or fail to even find the stick for starters.

This blog has always been a place for me to waffle on about whatever crosses my mind, whether it good or bad and in that respect makes for a good way of thinking things through aloud or jotting down things I want to remember. In keeping with my new found blogging roll I have been writing about a wider variety of topics than usual, so expect some more on the way soon.

  1. Ha ha, I love it. "Granny, cheerleader, cool dude look!" Mwa ha!!! The shoes are really nice, they look so sleek and lovely (like Vix's amazing fake Litas- I really like that style) but there's no way I could ever get my foot at that angle! I would subscribe if I had a youtube login, but I don't unfortunately, but I will come and watch them when you do them!! Is that a new tartan skirt or is it one of the cool ones you already have? Wasn't sure if I recognised it!x

  2. Sorry to hear that it has been a difficult couple of months. I don't know why you lack confidence, you are so cool and I love reading your blog. On my mobile phone, your link is one of the top 4 websites that I look at (after email, blogger and another blog). Keep doing what you do!x
