Rooftop


 Oooofff always SUCH a good feeling posting photos you really love! Harry and I popped into town last weekend to pick up some bits and bobs, and stopped to take some photos on the rooftop of the car park - I have taken photos in carparks before and they always turn out so fab! I also managed to balance minus the crutches, which aren't really my fave feature in photos! I have a leg brace on here, which I have now taken off - yayayyyy!! So skinny jeans are back and slowly but surely I am getting my blogging mojo back. Keep your eyes peeled for a little life updates post too, sadly this bloody knee hasn't finished disrupting things but more on that later.

Grey Days


 Here are some snaps taken on a particularly grey day, wearing all grey too! As you can see I have accessorised with the grey too, thankfully these crutches aren't a bright colour otherwise I would be stuck. Anywaysss on the topic of accessorising, how gorgeous are these rings?? I ordered them last week from Finery London (which I am now obsessed with!!), and they're just so perfect.

Double Denim

Photos by Jack Margerison 

 Here is the second look from my Warehouse feature, and in the second spot in Leeds. This time is the Corn Exchange, which is an amazing spot full of spots to eat and amazing boutique shops. It is such a stunning building, and I definitely will be heading back there to do more photos. Just HOW beautiful do these photos look?! This look was one of my faves too, I am loving the double denim, and how gorgeous are these jeans? I am seriously into wearing all one colour (usually black), but head to toe blue is so refreshing, especially with a pop of cobalt from the clutch.

Catch up on the Warehouse blog post here.

When Life Gives You Lemons...


Right now I should be in London for Fashion Week, but dislocating my knee a couple of weeks ago put the brakes on those plans. Needless to say I am gutted, I am missing out on so many experiences and spending time with so many lovely people. It got me thinking about how to cope with these little blips in life. Whether a little inconvenience that is getting you down, (like my knee issue right now) or something more serious with much longer repercussions (something I have also experienced). So here are some of the things I do when life gives you lemons!


1. Write it all down

We all have so much going on in day to day life, and sometimes it just doesn't go to plan. I bet so many you write to-do lists, but less of you probably keep a diary (I am endlessly writing to-do lists, and have only very recently started keeping a diary). Isn't it funny that we know writing things down organises our mind, as we can visualise what we need to do, yet we don't necessarily apply this to more emotional things. If you have loads going on in your head, put it to paper. If it is a little niggle, trying writing it down and leaving it there for now. If it an ongoing thing, use writing to reason with yourself and understand what is going on in life. I find it so helpful to visualise things, as it also helps to put things in perspective.


2. Thought or Fact?

If, like me, you're a bit of a worrier - ask yourself: thought or fact?
So here is an example. I am currently mid way through my dissertation, and yesterday spent most of the day thinking I was definitely going to fail it, and therefore fail my whole degree. You know when a little thought snowballs and develops beyond your control? So I had to ask myself, what of this is thought, and what is fact? Dealing with the facts, I know I have never failed an essay at University. I am averaging a solid 2:1, so I have no reason to believe I am going to fail at all! That is it for the facts, the rest is thought. I use this for all kinds of things. Worrying someone might have fallen out with me - what are the facts I have to support it? If there are none, it is just a thought and I dismiss it. Point one can also be helpful here, as writing these things down makes it all so much clearer!


 3. Talk to someone...

... or not! If it is something you don't want to talk about, then don't be pressured into it. Feeling ready to talk to someone (either a friend, family member, or a professional) can take time, and you will know when you are ready for it. But when you are, it is immensely helpful! I would advise to carefully think about who you talk to. Don't pick someone who is just nosey, or enjoys some drama, just wanting to know more of your personal life. Go to your nearest and dearest, ring your best friend who you can always count on, lean on people who you trust to hold you up.


4. Make a Gin and Tonic!

Take A Perch


 This was an outfit I wore to go for brunch and pick up some goodies from Space NK with Mum. I am going a little stir crazy so I was SO excited about my planned outing! We managed to snap some pictures too, which we did outside a café so I didn't have to have my crutches as an accessory! Sorry about my super dry lips too, I forgot to add some lip balm which is a fatal mistake at this time of year!
