#OOTD (Outfit of the Day)

Ciao ♥ Long time no see. How are you? How's everything? What's new? It's certainly been a while since I've been on here. Almost seven months. That's a bloomin' long time come to think of it. I guess some of you are wondering where I've been and what I've been up to. Hmm! To be honest I don't quite know where to begin... and yes the start would obviously be a good place but there's not much to say other than I simply didn't feel like blogging. Psh! You can't blame a girl for being honest especially considering that honesty is the best policy. However, that's not to say I didn't try because I did, I really did. In fact, I probably tried more times than you could possibly imagine but the same thing happened each and every time; after taking what felt like forever to put together a few sentences, I'd end up clicking that ever so tempting x button and told myself I'd try again soon.

Of course soon eventually turned into weeks, then months and has unexpectedly landed me here today. I guess I'm just not about that whole 'trying to force something' way of life. After all there's no point wasting your time and effort on something if your heart and mind are not truly invested in it. When in doubt take a step back and re-evaluate the purpose of it.

I know it's a little too late to wish y'all a happy new year but I do hope it has been good to you so far. Considering March is just around the corner it seems that 2017 is going to pass us by just as quickly as 2016 did. Looking back 2016 was a memorable year and for all of the right reasons. It was a year full of growth and progression. I passed my driving test in March - on my first attempt might I add, got a car in May and finally started climbing the ladder for my chosen career in August - I'm now a HR Administrator and loving it. It's fair to say things only got better as the year progressed. God willing this year will be just as productive if not better.

Anyways, enough of all of this chit-chat as we both know I can talk for England. I thought it would be a good idea to share a recent outfit of mine to help smoothly ease my way back into blogging. I wore this outfit when I met a friend for dinner not too long ago. As we had decided beforehand to eat at good ol' Nandos I wanted the main focus of my outfit to be comfort. It was definitely one of those comfort over everything style kinda days. However, despite being a pretty basic outfit in terms of the lack of colour and the oversized fit of the garments, the bead embroidery on my jumper and the silver studs on my cross-body bag helps to dress it up a little and prevents it from being average and boring. What do you guys think? Is this something you would wear? X

Outfit of the Day (#OOTD)

Ciao ♥ Dang! It's been a hella long time since I last published a post but - BOOM - I'm back, and better than ever. Seeing as it's long time no speak, how are you guys? I hope you're all doing fabulously well and having a great summer, even if the weather is slightly poo-ish (damn you British weather).. or not if you're somewhere warm (lucky sod).

I can't really complain though as I've just come back from a relaxing girls holiday to Marbella, Spain. So prepare yourself as I've literally got a gazillion and one outfit posts to share with y'all. Apart from the obvious holiday outfits, I've also got some festival and evening wear ones.. all which will be coming at you left, right and centre over the next few weeks.

In today's post I will be sharing the outfit I wore on my first evening out in Marbella. This beautiful two piece is from Zara, as are my block sandal heels. Besides the gorgeous and elegant detailing, this outfit is airy and lightweight - perfect for a warm summer's evening. I paired it with my favourite red lipstick: MAC's Lady Danger, to add a pop of colour to the look. What do you guys think? Are you a fan of two-pieces? If so, where's your go-to place to buy them?

My Recent Trip to Paris, France

Ciao ♥ How are you? I hope you're all doing well and enjoyed your weekend. I'm sure you'll agree it's been quite a while since I last published a lengthy-ish blog post. On that note what better way to get back into the swing of things than to tell you about my recent trip to Paris.

Despite its renowned tourist attractions, Paris was never a destination I had any particular desire of visiting prior to my recent trip. In fact I've never quite understood the fascination surrounding this city. Although it's on average a 45-60 minutes flight from London, I've always wanted to venture further out into the world, and experience places that are not overly parallel to my everyday life. What changed my mind? Two words... Chris Brown.

A few weeks ago the girls and I met up at Bill's to discuss our upcoming summer holiday over a cup of coffee. Upon arrival my friend Yasman immediately mentioned that she had just seen on Twitter that Chris Brown was about to go on tour around Europe. Now as some of you may know, Chris Brown has been barred from the U.K. since 2010, due to his altercation with Rihanna. After checking out his tour dates we discovered his concert in Paris conveniently fell on the weekend of the spring bank holiday meaning we could make a make a mini trip of it all.. and that's exactly what we did. Besides from livin' it up at Chris Brown's concert (which was amazing btw), and almost losing my voice as a consequence, we also did a lot of sightseeing which I captured below..

Outfit of the Day (#OOTD)

Ciao ♥ Happy Monday! I hope you all had a lovely weekend and are well rested from the previous week. I probably shouldn't be telling you guys this but honesty is the best policy after all... Basically I really cannot be bothered to type up a lengthy post, so let me off on this one occasion, and I'll love you forever. X
