Over on my Instagram you would have seen me banging on about the latest addition to my bag family. The pink PVC Shirley from Staud. Now obviously I can only really use this at times that I’m not laid down with baby gear but I have to say it’s quickly turned into one of my favourites. I also have it’s sister, the brown mock croc but I feel the pattern is sometimes a bit tricky to match to outfits. The pink however, there are so many ways to style it up!
I launched my blog and turned it into a full time business as well as adding extra revenue streams, allowing myself to become self employed and charge what I want. Here are my tips and tricks that you can use to do the same…
Putting the office party and Christmas day aside, our outfits could be prepared in advance simply by just mixing a few items, a few wardrobe essentials. They’re what I like to call, ‘an outfit of the day arsenal’. The upside is that they also make for some pretty decent #ootd Instagram posts too!
Right now there’s a spotlight on sustainability and fast fashion so it got me thinking about ways to reinvent our wardrobes. Wearing a repeat outfit doesn’t have to be such a devastation if you know how to change the styling.
Topping my new season wish list (and on the more affordable end of the spectrum) was the gorgeous YSL logo buckle belt. A designer belt’s a great new season investment because like a bag, it goes with most things but kinder on the budget.
For anyone who follows me on social media, you’ll know I recently decided to do a 10 day stint of ‘no phone’. I wanted to do an experiment to monitor just how much it affects my mental health in general. The decision came after a few months of therapy for depression. While I know social media is not the root cause of what I’m dealing with, I do believe it to have a bit of a toxic influence. Especially when used incorrectly.
