Collective Dress Haul 2017 |👗

Hey Loves,

It’s Fri-YAY!!! I feel like I have been anxiously awaiting the weekend for a couple of days. Honestly, I do not like to wish the days away but it has been one of those weeks. How are y’all doing? How are things?

Excited to be blogging and vlogging and getting back to me again! There is something about expressing yourself in an unapologetic way. Just being who you are and seriously making no apologies for that! I digress…

Building the confidence to wear dresses again has been an uphill battle. The confidence in dresses is one thing but the confidence overall in this new body of mine is another. More on confidence coming soon. You can always check here for some tips that have worked for me in the past. I did not think I would be able to rock bandage dresses or even mini dresses so this has pushed my fashion in a different direction.

So I recently went on a shopping spree… for some occasionwear for a couple of events I have coming up. These dresses made me feel beautiful and put a smile on my face that did not leave so I knew they were winners! One was my Valentine’s dress… can you guess which one? Let me know which is your fave! Shoutout to SOUNDATION whose new song ‘WAITING’ is used in the video. Link to the song is in video description box!

My Favourite Looks of 2015!

Hey Loves!

I know we are full swing into 2016 and Fashion Week in NYC but I wanted to take a little look back and appreciate some of my favourite looks of 2015!

If you are a regular to my blog then you know that 2015 was a big year for me with regards to fitness and health. I have always enjoyed fashion but comfort was the overriding factor in the early stages when I was a lot less confident. Jeans and sweaters were my wardrobe staples. Can you spot when I started to become more adventurous?

Some of the outfits have been featured in #CopMyCloset and for those that haven’t if you’re interested in anything I am rocking, get in touch!

Hope you enjoyed a little look back of my non-apologetic fashion choices of last year! I’m on a whole new level in 2016!

Don’t forget you can find all my social links in the contact me section at the top of the page!

Besos 💋

TBH! xoxo

#CopMyCloset | Birthday Behaviour!

Hey Loves!

So I finally hit the BIG 4-0! Felt like I was in preparation for this ‘event’ for the whole of 2015. Why? I will tell you about that in my next post.

Here is a quick look at the outfits I wore for both my pre-birthday dinner and my actual birthday dinner. Red was certainly the colour of the season…I guess it always is during Christmas!

I wanted to spend as much time as possible with my family and friends on my birthday and I didn’t take a lot of solo pictures so apologies for the quality. I will be working on some quality pics for 2016 and beyond!

Pre-Birthday Fab!

Dress | Fleur East x Lipsy | Gold Bracelet | Coach | Gold Strappy Heels | New Look (about 6 years old)

This dress was beautiful up close and personal. It had a thigh revealing split on one side with a wrap and ruched detail at the top. Extremely comfortable and lightweight. Only drawback is the top of the dress wasn’t too fitted and so was a little big. I am sure that it is easy enough to have taken in though.

Birthday Night Out

Dress | Ruched Midi Length Dress from Florida Boutique | Shoes | Nude Pumps New Look | Bracelets | Coach | Earrings | Diamante Hoops (naturally) Aldo

As mentioned earlier, I am really going to focus on taking some quality outfit of the day pictures and include accessories and shoes also. I rely on quick snaps from my phone but they don’t always give you the full pow that I want them to! It’s coming loves!

I also didn’t cop a full face pic of my makeup look which was a gorgeous green smokey eye with nude lips. Think I will try and recreate it in coming weeks!

Hope you enjoyed this post!

Coming up next on the blog: I’m 40! Now what?

Besos 💋

TBH! xoxo
