Good Day Sunshine... Hello Autumn.


I can never decide which ones worse; transitional dressing from winter into summer or vice versa? I guess with winter into summer we're always so eager to dust off our most beloved sandals and flaunt our favourite sundresses. I mean a bit of vitamin C never hurt anyone did it?! There's something about sun kissed skin that just makes you feel like a better version of yourself. And let's face it, in the UK you're kind of deprived of sun for the majority of the year, so you can't really blame us for being the keenest beans in the can when summertime comes a-knocking! Summer into winter on the other hand... Ugh, well this is a little more arduous to say the least. Don't get me wrong all things considered Autumn is technically my favourite season of the lot. It's cosy, it's crisp, the colours outside your house and inside your wardrobe are better (in my humble opinion) and there's plenty of festive fun to anticipate. No, it's not the season itself that's the issue. It's the "what on earth do I wear" conundrum that comes with it that really gets my goat. 

Links Of London- Timeless After Time

Truth be told I'm a sucker for habits, routine and uniform. In both my personal style and my lifestyle, familiarity is always best. So many pieces of my clothes and jewellery hold sentimental value and so many of my favourite places have a nostalgia them that I hold so dear it's priceless. I think that's a huge reason to why I adore my home town of Manchester and certain little nooks within it so much! I have too many happy (ok... and possibly a few sad) memories dotted around this city that make it just so very special to me. And the older I get, the more lovely memories within Manchester I collect. One of my all time favourite pass times when I'm having a down day is to sit in on of my usual Manchester cafe's with a coffee in hand and gaze out the window. The amount of times I will have probably looked at that same view I'm staring out on to is countless but it never gets old because there's that comforting familiarity to it that you can only find from your home.

Gola X Liberty Arts Fabric- Back To Black


We've hit September which means we're officially treading on Autumn territory and I don't know about you but I'm having a tough time completely letting go of summer dressing. There's definitely an autumnal feeling in the air yet as the weather stays moderately warm it's hard to fully commit to digging out my winter coats and chunky knits. Earlier on in the year I spoke about Gola's collaboration with Liberty Print and how it was the perfect transitional shoe from winter into summer. Well funnily enough I'm finding out that a Gola X Liberty Arts Fabric trainer is in fact equally perfect for your summer to winter transitional wardrobe too! Well done Gola! And here's why...

Lifestyle- So Let's Make Time Work For Us.


We've all heard the term "work-life balance" more than enough times and to be honest it used to kind of make my eyes roll a little. It's often a subject we see in glossy magazines, "how to create the perfect work-life balance", the joys and the importance of it. I used to think this wasn't a difficult concept to get your head around. I'd come home from work and I'd switch off. I'd have the down time I needed and my weekends were strictly my own. As the years have gone by that balance has slowly but surely become off kilter and what was once easily done, is now a impossible task.
