BLACK ON BLACK ON BLACK

When I found out I got my new job I thought "Great! Time for me to put some of my items I never wear to use!" Then I was told I had to wear black....blah...

Some people find black quite comfortable to wear, its easy, simple and doesn't really require much thought, but for me the thought of wearing black left me disappointed. I have so many items in my wardrobe that have yet to see the light of day!
 But what can I do, rules are rules eh? So I thought I would let you have a peak at the outfits worn during my first week.

LIFE LATELY

Well its nearly the end of march and I haven't been blogging consistently as I would like because I have been so distracted, so I thought I would catch you guys up with a few photos. 

The weather is pretty up and down here in London, were going through snow and rain and man is it cold but I am so looking forward to warm weather I can't help but reach for bright colours like this coral/orange polish from beauty base. I've also been having a go at editing my pictures and loving the black and white finish as it makes photos look really classy. I got a little excited in primark, but with good reason (primark really have some good stuff!), and got some new shoes too! Haul coming soon! I don't know if anyone has noticed but I revamped my blog layout and I am absolutely loving it I think it looks a lil more professional and it was all done by me! There are more links to my other social networks, and at the top of the blog are tabs were you can get to know me a bit more. Speaking of social networks I am obsessed with keek, 36sec videos on anything you choose, the whole Kardashian family seem to be on there and some instagram people too and I made my first keek too! Ive been a bit late in starting my fitness regime but I am dedicated to toning up this year. I have overindulged in food for a long time and the consequences have finally caught up with me and my stomach. So mission toned waistline is in progress....

I seem to add more apps to my iPhone than it can handle, but whatevs...imadeface is hilarious I can't seem to get my avatar right but I think I did a pretty good job on my boyfriends! My february favourites are a few beauty items, mainly skin related. Having been to an interview at hollister I realised how much I relied on makeup. Hollister like their staff to have a "natural" look. Ive never considered myself someone who wears a lot of makeup but I would like to be at a place were I could happily leave the house without it. So I have been adding to my regime some products I think would help improve my skin. I have been using them this month too so I think I will review them in my March favs.

And finally, after 7 months of unemployment I got offered a position as a medical administrator! I started on Monday and had a successful 1st week! I am loving my new job. It has been a long road to get here, its been really hard but I am feeling good. More soon! x

TREND OBSESSION || DUNGAREES

Pictures sourced from Tumblr and Google Images

Dungarees...the uniform of workmen...the iconic style of 90s girl group TLC...and now my fashion obsession. They suit everyone! Great for a casual lazy day and or even a night out, its totally up to the individual how to style these beauties. Their the perfect twist to regular jeans and just right for this weird weather we've been having in London lately. I've been on the hunt for a pair for a while now! I want full length denim ones, short ones and I NEED these ones from Zara here, I have been ogling them for about a month!! Aww man aren't they great and how cute are the white knitted ones at the top? 
I love how Miroslava Duma (Russian editor and fashionista) has worn hers, she hits all the notes in oxblood coloured leather, geometric prints, statement necklaces, flared bottoms and a turban. I love her...

I can't wait to get mine, I'm thinking of doing a lookbook of different ways to wear dungarees. Would you guys want to see that? Let me know! 

Its been exactly one month today since my last post but a lot has happened since then and I can't wait to share it with you so keep an eye out for an update in my next post! 

Have a great weekend!
