The best thing about March – spring! Like clockwork, I have already found myself wearing lighter colours. Say hello to my newest pair of Nike Air Max Ones, gifted to me by a good friend last Christmas. Nothing quite beats colourful footwear when it comes to adding a spring to your step.
I’ll show you the rest of my outfit next week. For now, have an awesome weekend!
Last Sunday Me and El decided to frequent Westfield’s Shopping Centre. It’s been a while since we did a trip together; it appears as though we have swapped our usual indulgences for a whole load of gym’ing, shocking! :) One thing I noticed was a micro trend of mini handbags that has found its way into high street shops. Zara, in particular, currently have a lovely little range of minuscule bags with this Mock Croc Leather piece being my favourite. How cute is this?!

You know I have been into cat eye sunglasses for a while now, and since my last post about it, i purchased this lovely pair from Le Specs. This Australian brand was founded in the 70’s and relaunched in 2006 with designs inspired by street style in New York and Stockholm. Le Specs sunnies have taken industry by storm and gained a massive celebrity and blogger following. But i can see why, these sunglasses are so much fun, well made and offer great style at very affordable price. Slightly on the large size, super black, polished acetate frame adds a lovely lux touch to any outfit. Now all I need is for sun to come out so I can take these babies out to play!
You can see their whole range out here: lespecs.com
Available in UK through ASOS and Net-a-Porter.
Who could resist a little sparkle? Black Tied by MAC is the only eyeshadow I wear, and I do so religiously. I’m not really an eyeshadow person, I usually just stick to liquid liner, but I love adding a touch of this glittery black to the edge of my lids. Alongside a touch of highlighter underneath the brows, it’s the perfect transitional combination for a subtle day and night look

Nothing like a touch of outfit inspiration to get you started in the morning! On this February morning, I’d probably opt for this first outfit here but I do love getting colour happy every so often.
Have a great day beauts, and enjoy your weekend :)

Finery is closing the gap between high street and designer.
New boutique opened in London on 5th of February offers shoppers modern and sophisticated styling. Finally cutting edge design doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. Finery has launched with 127 pieces that will make you fall in love with dressing again.
Their main collection might be a little too simplistic for me but the shoes and accessories are stunning! Just look at the stunning metails and intricate detail. Love!
The braids are officially gone! Well, they actually went a little while ago. I do enjoy the versatility of adding extensions and trying out new looks every so often but I’m considering keeping it natural for a little while. I have a lot of layers in my hair so curls hold and last for ages. Say hello to classy, chic Adiyam. For now, she’s here to stay…
Postcards from Berlin
This last photo makes me laugh! The hat and gloves I packed did nothing to keep me warm so I made a stop at a memorabilia shop and bought this little ‘I Love Berlin’ combo :). Honestly, I must be Berlin’s biggest fan. There is something about this city that makes me feel so at home. In reflection, I should have taken more photos but, as you can see, it was just too cold to keep stopping. For those of you planning a trip, definitely check out the museums. I’m a history buff and Berlin has tons to keep you occupied with but the Jewish Museum is, by far, the most moving. A visit to the Reichstag is a must as are the numerous sight / memorial spots around the city. The nightlife is pretty cool; check out the many bars / clubs East Berlin has to offer – that’s the spot! There are tons of great places to let your hair down; Berghain Bar, Watergate, Club Gretchen are places I’d recommend. Aah Berlin, I hope to see you soon.
This photo seems so alien to me. Lately I’ve been wearing nothing but black (a hue that I am currently wearing, as I’m sitting here typing away; shock!) Likewise, although this photo was only taken last January, I feel as though it was a lifetime ago. I’ve been hibernating this winter and really feeling the winter blues. Hopefully the weather over the past few days is an indication of winter (finally) drawing to a close. Roll on spring, and a summer filled with lots of colour.
See photos from the above outfit post here.
It’s been six whole weeks since I last blogged – how absurd! I think it’s time I checked in with you guys…
So what has 2015 brought so far? A new job! I’m not too sure if I mentioned this to you earlier but in January I was due to start a new teaching role. It’s been hectic but all good so no complaints!
Something else that’s new is my fitness regime. Taking a page out of El’s book, I started working out with her trainer and since have seen some real results. My intention isn’t to lose weight; instead, I want to tone up and keep my curves. I like mixing it up and do 4 sessions a week which include a bit of Hot Yoga, running and a whole lot of weight lifting. I’m currently in love with H&M’s sportswear selection. Here’s some pieces I’ve picked out. In the gym, I like keeping things simple, and sport a lot of grey and blacks. Shocking for a colour fanatic like me right?

Speaking of coats, here is what I wore the other weekend. Ah how i love my rabbit fur coat! You first saw it here and now its back in a more casual look. Paired with my new Lacoste trainers it’s perfect for running errands on a frosty Sat morning.
Coat | Jumper (ASOS old) | Jeans | Trainers | Bag | Scarf (Zara old) | Swarowski Ring | Accessorize Earrings
I have seen a number of fashion bloggers wear these PelloBello fuzzy beauties. Aren’t they gorgeous?
It’s hard to find a good furry coat for a good price and these seem to tick both boxes. PelloBello coats are made to order and shipped from Sweden. What’s even better is that they come in short and long versions plus a lovely colour palate to choose from.
Get your hands on one here
A year ago you would have not seen me wearing trainers outside of the gym, but it must have been Adiyam’s influence and I have finally given in for this cute Lacoste pair. They have this lovely white leather so don’t feel sporty at all. Can’t wait for summer so I can pair these babies with denim shorts! Find them here
We’re a little late with our petit rendezvous over 2014. Looking back on it now though, it was such a good year for both of us. Today we simply want to thank you for continuing to follow our journey into bloggersphere. We’re looking forward to keeping you entertained this year, the next and hopefully those that will follow after that.
As always, all the best.
Happy Wednesday guys!
As you can see, I’m keeping it cool, calm and collected today in a simple pair of jeans and tee, matched with a faux fur coat and hat. The pop of colour on my nails are brightening up these grey January days and keeping me smiling for now.
