Stripes, Pinafore & Gucci

Are stripes ever really not on trend? I think not. They're super easy to throw on, extremely versatile and can be worn with almost everything. From subtle nautical stripes to contrasting colours and prints, adding some texture to my wardrobe is getting me in that Spring mood (which I desperately need as January blues are hitting me hard!). Stripes had a strong presence on the runways of these last fashion weeks. Vertical, horizontal, diagonal, pinstripe, dashed; all kinds of different versions went down the runways and it is fair to say stripes will be a major spring/ summer 2018 print trend (and I'm already wearing it now!). Here's a very 90s look I created with stripes, a pinafore, the hat everyone wants and the newest addition to my wardrobe, my Gucci Soho disco bag!

What I've Been Loving Lately (PS. These Are Great V-Day Gift Ideas Too!)

As cliché it may sound, how are we almost at the end of the January already? Not only did this month fly by it has also been one of the busiest months I've had recently. Work has more than doubled at my job and I've definitely been hit by the January blues (I blame payday being so far away!). But in an attempt to lighten my mood and talk about nicer and exciting things, I am sharing with you all today what I've been loving lately in the beauty department. Despite most being from PR, I genuinely love them - otherwise, I would not be sharing them here- AND they would make great gifts for the beauty lover in your life for Valentine's Day. Celebrating V-day only between couples is SO last year so this year, the hubby and I will be cherishing our friendships and I'm sure one of my girlfriends would LOVE these! Hope you enjoy this post, I had a great time putting it together and I am very excited to be bringing more beauty content this year!

Pantone Colour of The Year 2018: Ultra Violet

Every year, the colour experts at the Pantone Colour Institute arrive at a colour of the year after extensive research on all possible topics you can imagine, from technology to fashion. And, if you have been a reader of mine for a while you will know I love mentioning the Pantone colours of each year; remember Rose Quartz and Serenity for 2016? How about Greenery for 2017? Baby pink and baby blue to this day, continue to be amongst my favourites shades in just about anything (currently trying to convince the hubby of getting a pink chair for the living room). I confess greenery wasn't my favourite, not exactly a colour that moves me much and apart from adding a few all-green plants to my home, it wasn't a shade I was dying to wear. This year, however, the new shade to bet on is incredibly vibrant and unlike anything I was expecting, and I'm excited!

Welcome 2.6! 26 Things I have learned by 26

So no one told you life was gonna be this way...

This girl turned 26 yesterday and it feels like just yesterday I was 18! When people told me that after 20, time was going to fly by I did not believe them but it has been so very true. Every year goes by quicker and quicker so I always remind myself that it is a good idea to make the most of it. This past year was full of different experiences, both good and bad, which I believe made me grow as a person. I learned various different things and I wanted to share with you 26 of these today, in no particular order. Enjoying reading and I hope you like the outfit I bring you today, featuring Simply Be.

Welcome 2018: 2017 Recap and Blogging Resolutions!

And so the year finally starts here on the blog! I've been away for a few weeks, not just from this space but also from work and let me tell how good that felt! I was still pretty active over on social media and if you follow me on Instagram you would have seen that I went travelling with the hubby, but it was a much needed time to switch off, relax and recharge my batteries for the new year ahead, especially after the very busy year of 2017 I had! Let's have a quick recap, shall we?!
