How has it been over a month since I graced my blog with a fashion post? I have to remind myself guys that outside of trying to keep up with social media; because that is a feat in its self. I am a blogger first and a proud blogger at that. I also have to often remind myself that there are many people who do read my posts. Maybe it’s because they don’t physically leave comments that leads me to think that no-one is there. However, once I have conversations with people, I learn that they do check and read my blog OFTEN. Also, the stats don’t lie. I’ve built something pretty cool here and no matter all the curve balls life keeps throwing my way; I have an obligation to keep coming onto my happy space and sharing the aspects of my life that make me feel happy and more complete.
My Look, My Way
Would you believe me if I said that it took me over two hours of scrolling through the Chi Chi Clothing website to find anything to wear! No matter how much times I moved from one page to another, I just couldn’t find the right dress for me. I love Chi Chi Clothing dresses but I always struggle to find what I am looking for. So to be honest I tend to choose the dresses finally opt for; based solely on the colour.
Even though I shot this dress after a fair few others, I have had to blog it before them, Just because, look at this dress! The colours are EVERYTHING. When it came to accessorising this look I had the option of choosing various different colours and had originally opted for a canary yellow. However, red then stood out to me and I am so happy that I made the switch because the finished look was just what I imagined and more.
What’s it like functioning in a depressive space? I know that this way of being is a REAL thing as I function in this state daily. Trauma and dealing with numerous hurts that I have suppressed for a long time has been the main cause. Moving from one day to another and not really having a chance to work through things has heightened the state. It’s become quite a comfortable space for me because somehow, so much action take place here. I am always busy, always pro-active, always coaching, developing and creating and yet, I know I am not completely okay.
Hey guys, it’s been a few days since I posted anything. As I always like to keep things 100 on here. I am not in the best head space and have been finding it difficult to do much of anything. Before this cloud descended though, I had an epic shoot this Sunday gone with Katie Ryan Creations and Syianne Raymond. I am pretty lucky to have two great photographers on hand. One is a seasoned professional, the other a phenomenal amateur; but they both help me to create epic imagery. In this instance, all of the photos you will see today have been captured by Katie. Her website relaunches very soon, but until then; follow her on Instagram HERE
I hadn’t heard of this brand before they reached out to me for a collaboration. But I can honestly say that I was missing out as I have never worn a pair of jeans so comfortable; and I mean NEVER! I practically shot this look then returned home and wore it at home too. That’s the kind of comfortable I am referring to.
I’ve never ever purchased an orange blazer before. In fact; I don’t really own much orange clothing. But there is something really amazing about this orange blazer. I have your typical black and blue blazers, I also own yellow and green blazers, but nothing beats my new fave. I had already planned my all white ensemble and knew that the blazer would make it a LOOK. But, I honestly was not ready for this.
Don’t I honestly look like a Jazz musician in this suit? lol; but I absolutely love it! I really wanted to try something a LOT different from my norm. Fashion is about pushing boundaries and not always sticking to your comfort zone. This suit couldn’t be further from my comfort zone. A bright green, not tight fitting suit teamed with big black boots. I never felt so free in this easy and effortless look.
It feels really good to be back on the blog and sharing a fashion post. I have been quite active with content I shot at home on my INSTAGRAM but I haven’t been out shooting looks for a while. They’re have been many reasons behind this. The main one has been I haven’t really wanted to. I don’t like the pressure of having to shoot and I like to go, on a whim; when I want to. I had already planned weeks in advance that when I shot again, I would be shooting a few blazer suits I picked up from Shein. So yesterday, when the weather allowed some periods of sunshine (between the sporadic droplets of rain) Syianne (my mum) and I went out to my usual location and shot some really nice images.
Guys, listen we are definitely going to ignore the Elephant in the room and disregard the fact that I haven’t stuck to my own blogging schedule! I know, I know
