What To Do With A Creative Block 

I am supposed to be writing a post for another company. But I’m stumped! I have bloggers block. I’m not necessarily sure that’s a ‘thing’ but I’ll make it one. If you’re a creative then you will understand that sometimes when your creativity is on a schedule or it has a due date you tend…

The Heart Flower Connection / Part 2

After such a hot week the rain has been an incredible surprise! Unfortunately 10 minutes into the rain I realised that I had left my DIY cushion on the balcony. There was no hope left for my cushion!  The rain also happened to teach me more about my beautiful blooms! Now, we always find those…

The Heart Flower Connection 

January hasn’t even finished and already, 2017 has proved to be quite eventful. In this short month, I have learned one big lesson. To take care of myself. Now, I thought I was taking care of myself, my room was always clean and tidy, clothes colour co- ordinated, to do list checked. I had a…

Happy 2017

In typical New Years fashion I am writing a reflection. I would like to say that as I write this I am sitting on my balcony watching the sunrise with a cup of tea but that wouldn’t exactly be the truth. I am in my bed, 45 minutes into a deep condition for my hair…

Now I Know

Whenever I was asked what I wanted to do with my life, I replied fashion. Then they’d want the specifics and it would always change, from designer to journalist to brand ambassador to owning my own label. I would always say I wanted to do something in the fashion industry but I was never quite…

The Lone Wolf

From day three to day six all of my outfits have had some sort of blue in each of those outfits. Which got me thinking about actually feeling blue…

Rest and Relaxation 

Sometimes we forget that we need to take a break, we tend to forget that we need a solid dose of rest and relaxation. I’ve found that the point when I realise I need to take break is the moment that I actually take the break! It’s like you don’t realise how tired you are…

Be Inspired 

People have this tendency to say that I’m stylish and not going to lie, I am! The thing is, we all are! If a band tee, skinny jeans and converse is what you love to wear then that is your style. Your style is what you love. Now, I have this thing where I fall…

Running 

What is it like to be running and getting nowhere fast. I’m sure you’ve heard that phrase a few times, along with the phrase one step forwards and two steps backwards. Making a change isn’t always as easy as waking up and just deciding to do something different or to be different. It takes practice…

A Little Lesson

Discouragement is a massive stumbling block. I’ll start with that. It can lead to so many things, feelings of inadequacy and inefficiency. Dealing with the discouragement slump can be difficult. I’ve been in one of those slumps for the past three weeks. Assignments have been due and for me, my fashion assignment was the last…
