LFW Day Two














This year, I decided to take London Fashion Week a lot easier. As I've been travelling a lot lately, and will be heading out again on Wednesday ( I think I've mentioned it enough times now) I didn't want to run myself down as I do every other season. So instead I am only going for a few days and I even took today (Saturday) off so that I could attend a wedding with my family. 

I did however have a second outfit from yesterday that I thought you guys would love to see on me. It's something super different for me. Although I would be seen wearing each piece individually, however I decided to step out of my comfort zone and team them all together. But I think it worked. 

I love the contrast between the lace with the sport luxe style jumper. It really shouldn't work, and for everyday I would probably stick out like a sort thumb but it is London Fashion Week at the end of the day and anything goes.

What would you wear to London Fashion Week if you had the chance?

LFW Day One















So I am back in London (for a few days) before my last summer vacation of the year. This summer seems to have just flown by for me as I have not spent that much time in the UK. That said, I've felt a little out of it with my blog.

But with it being London Fashion Week, I thought I'd get back into the swing of it with a few of my outfits from this season. 

This first look was inspired by this fabulous lady I saw last season at LFW. She looked absolutely gorgeous and as a friend put it "when you dress like that you get invited to Burberry" So that's what I did. Alas, I didn't get the Burberry invite this year (again) but here's to positive thinking.

I went for a tailored suit in this stunning cherry red colour with nothing but a thermal tee on underneath...because London. With this look I thought I'd go for a sleek low ponytail as it helps keep the outfit the main focus. 

Teaming the pants suit with gold and black accessories kept the entire outfit looking quite chic and oh so FASHUN!

Things My Brother Taught Me






Growing up I've always known there were two special guys in my life. One was obviously my dad, and the other, the other was my older brother. With an age gap of four years, he has been the one guy I have constantly relied on for support, strength and daily humour.

Despite always longing for a sister to share clothes with, a life without an older brother for me is unimaginable. Although I can't borrow his clothes and we can't share make up tips with each other, I love having someone there that teases me about my blogging, jumps into my vlogs and blog photos and keeps me humble.

Although we've not always seen eye to eye (which siblings have?) like that time he dropped a metal spirit level on my head. Let me explain. Firstly, my dad is a builder, secondly, my brother was only four years old, and thirdly, this was 25 years ago, there was no such thing as health and safety. Or that time he teased me when all my baby teeth were falling out calling me tooth gap. The majority of our days are filled with laughter, love and arguing about who the favourite child is.

Over the years this 6ft6 guy has shown me how to be loving and caring while also teaching me how to stand up for myself. I've seen so many posts online about things my mum has taught me etc, but I thought I'd put my own little spin on it. So here are a few things that my brother taught me.

1) The most important people are your family. So for us, it's the four of us. Mum, dad, son and daughter. This is our unit and we will all do anything for each other unconditionally.

2) Stand up for yourself.

3) No one can make you do something you don't want to do

4) Don't give a shit about the small things. Honestly, I've never met anyone who doesn't care about the small stuff as much as my brother; "If this won't matter in 10 years, it doesn't matter now".

5) Most things are laughable. So laugh and move on.

6) Protect yourself. Years of wrestling and karate has taught me to protect myself (as of yet, never needed to and hope I never do).

7) Diet and exercise is important (i'm still working on this one)

8) Don't tell everyone everything that's going on in your life. Your family yes, your friend's friend's mum's cousin...No...Obviously.

9) Never let a guy miss treat you.

10) Don't work for free. No matter what it is.

Looking back at all these lessons that my brother has taught me makes me realise just how lucky I am to have someone constantly looking out for me and my best interests. I hope that whether you have a brother or not, these ten life lessons can help you just as much as they have helped me.
