Faux Fur & Booties

First off, these booties are on sale! I wish I had not paid full price now haha, but they were SO worth it. I fell in love the moment I saw them. They are also super comfortable, and the perfect heel height. 

Secondly, I have uploaded another Youtube video! I would love it if you checked it out, and left me some feedback. I'm planning out my next video, and hoping to gradually improve my filming and editing skills. 

These photos were shot a few weeks ago, when there was some flooding in the area (hence the tree in the water!). I love this faux fur vest, and have had it for several years now. It always makes an appearance every Autumn/Winter. This was a very comfy, casual and put together outfit which would work well for most daily situations (eg a day in London *sigh* - can you tell I miss these?!). 

This week is a busy one for me, lots of nights working, as well as this weekend. I'm ready to have a week off though, and I hope to film some more Youtube content! 

Chat to you all soon :)

Happy weekend everyone! I'm about to head to work, but I wanted to share with you all my first ever YouTube video (click here)! I hope to improve as they go on, but definitely feel I learned quite a bit from this one, and especially when I had to re-watch myself talking multiple times through editing! This is actually the second topic and about the 6th video I have filmed and edited, and I figured at this stage I just need to start posting them, and continuing to improve. It's hard not to be overly critical of oneself though! Would love it if you checked it out. 

This week I also started off by doing a really big surgery on a 40kg dog with a twisted stomach. He was discharged home a couple days later, so I hope he has continued to do well! 

Also, is this not the perfect Autumn/Winter outfit?! I imagine wearing this for a day in London, wandering around in flat boots but still really easily take the outfit from day to dinner. I love my large Michael Kors bag, bought it at the start of the hype in Europe around 2012 I believe. It's really practical, and great quality. 

Wishing you all a wonderful day!

Who else thinks they may have forgotten how to walk in heels?! Even trying to style an outfit for photos, my feet were well aware of the shoe situation. I miss dressing up! Luckily, I have this lovely blog to play with. It's like the adult version of playing dress up. Anybody else feel this way?

I'm starting this week off with lots of motivation, and a to-do list the length of my arm. I've also started yoga again, mostly for my back pain. I forgot just how good it feels! I have serious goals to make this a daily morning habit. They say it takes 30 days to 3 months, so fingers crossed I stick with it. 

I'm also planning on starting filming my first youtube video in the next few days. I've pretty much settled on the first topic. It's all a bit daunting and scary, when you've never done it but we'll put it all down to an interesting experience!

Wishing you all a lovely week ahead. Chat soon. 


Country Walk

The UK is back in a lockdown, so walks are the way forward. Lots of outdoorsy activities and hikes. This was snapped a few weeks ago, when I went for lunch with a friend and a walk around a cute village. 

At the moment, I'll be on the sofa - so my cute new walking boots will be sitting in the shoe cupboard for now. I've hurt my back, and even the shortest walk aggravates it. Which is a bit sad, but on the bright side it's really really cold and wet outside - so being indoors isn't half bad! 

I have also settled one of my New Year's goals for this year, and that is a 'no spend' year. Meaning, no shopping of any material items that are not considered essential. I managed to achieve a fair amount of online shopping, especially in the second half of the year. Too much, given I have nowhere to go and wear all my fabulous new clothes! 

What are your New Year's goals? I would love to know!

Reflecting on 2020

How fabulous is this dress?! I may have had a night of insomnia, and thought I would just briefly 'browse' the Karen Millen sale. OMG it's soo good! And they still have sales. Click the above link if you dare. 


This last year has actually been pretty good, despite the multiple cancelled holidays (which I'm really feeling!). I moved north of London - further into the countryside, and trained for my new job in Emergency & Critical Care - which I'm really enjoying! I also accomplished my main goal of the year, which was to pay off my credit card. Such an amazing feeling to have succeeded at this. 


I have a few new goals for 2021, mostly career and financially related - and mostly going hand in hand. Back to studying some more this year! Exciting, but also I just see ££££. 


This New Year is going to be even better, and I'm really hoping to be able to start travelling again, as this is something I miss terribly. Anyone else just want to hop on a plane and fly anywhere?! Even if it's for a spin in the sky. 


Wishing you all a wonderful and Happy New Year!
