My Style: Super Khaki, Super Crazy*

By January 7, 2015 My Style

YAY! The first outfit post of the year, and a slightly ‘not so Tolly’ outfit. I’ve been feeling a lot of different vibes at the moment, so if somebody were to ask me, “How do you define your style?”, the answer would most probably be… ‘I have absolutely no idea.’ But hey, that’s the fun of being my age right? ‘Finding out who you are’ and all that stuff. Anyway, if you want to know what on earth I’m talking about, scroll on down… (P.S Can we note that all my pictures are in focus?! It’s all down to Phillis.)

Ever since Lily (LLYMLRS) posted a certain outfit on her blog/instagram – my memory is terrible, I can’t remember what she was wearing or where it was put up – I have been in love with not only pleated midi skirts but also, khaki. I’ve always been a colour girl, and I still am at heart, but for some reason I am drawn to this mushy green colour that should look repulsive, but somehow, looks absolutely fabulous! It goes along with the new ‘army/utility’ trend, with all the dungarees and cute baggy blouses… which I love! So mix that with my new found love of midi skirts (especially pleated ones), and you’re onto a winner!

I picked up this sparkly number on ASOS, and I love it! It’s definitely a lot more green in real life, so take that into account if you fancy the look of it!

Another thing I picked up from ASOS, was this super cute (see what I did there) crop top! I didn’t actually know it was a crop top, but I like it none the less. I’m a big fan of the racer back style, and also a huge fan of all thinks sparkly, so it was a no brainer! I can’t wait to style it up in the summer! I think with baggy jumpers, it’s always nice to have a sneaky bit of something else popping through, so it was a good excuse to pop it underneath! Speaking of baggy jumpers, I got this pink one as a Christmas present (thanks Father Christmas Mama Posh!) and although it’s not something I would personally pick out, I like the texture and it goes perfectly well with this whole khaki thing.

Last but not least… accessories! I paired a few pieces of jewelry which I have had tucked away, and they worked wonderfully. The ear cuff was my first ever ASOS purchase (I think it was £2.50… I had to buy something back then), and although it seems my family despise of it, I rather like it! I’m becoming more open to mixing metal tones ya’ see! And as for the ring, goodness know’s where it’s from! I have an inkling it’s an old Primark piece, but I could be wrong. My feet are of course covered by my magnificent pair of Dr Martens which are the most beautiful things I own! *heart eyes emoji*

Blogging: Time, Effort & Energy

By June 29, 2014 DIY & Lifestyle

This post was going to be about a random piece of banana fibre I found (see here), but I changed my mind and it’s now about blogging. I’ve seen a lot of these posts lately, and I just want to get my words out there. I’m not sure how this will go, but I guess we’ll see!

blogging time effort energy(Thinking of selling personalised downloads of this? Comment if you like the idea!)

I sometimes say that blogging really isn’t anything special, and I don’t really understand when people say ‘You’re an inspiration’, but when my parents said to me ‘You don’t really know how much work you put into it [my blog]’, it kind of clicked. On top of doing home work, spending time with my family, and trying to just have me time; I’m on my Twitter, emails, Facebook and Instagram promoting myself, brands and anything random to please you, the readers. I feel like other bloggers try and hide the fact by saying ‘I only do it because I love it’, and some of us do, but at the same time, we’re writing and tweeting because people enjoy it. I know it might sound like that isn’t much to you ‘non-bloggers’, but actually when you add it all up, it really is.

Lily Melrose, or LLYMLRS, wrote a really short and sweet blog post about why you shouldn’t give up blogging, and her thoughts were exactly the same as mine are now. Basically, if you don’t put cake mixture in the oven, you won’t get a cake in the end… or if you don’t put the effort, time and energy in, you won’t get all the fun stuff… I prefer the cake version.. yummm cake! I’m not saying that if you’re not doing ‘well’ (well = your own definition of course), that you’re not putting enough effort in, but it might mean that you haven’t been doing it for that long, or maybe you’re setting your standards too high, or putting too many eggs over flour in your mixture (eggs/flour = different content).

These ingredients can mean whatever you want them to mean personally, so I can’t tell you the perfect quantities (#ImSoGoodAtTheseCakePuns), but when you look at these so-say ‘big bloggers’, you have to understand that they whisked and mixed, and put their cake mixture into the oven to get where they are today. Just because their cake is golden and gooey (…just give me my medal now…), doesn’t mean they didn’t think of giving up.

Your goals are your own. Whether you want blogging to take you to a full time job, or you just want to reach 100 followers within 6 months, it will take time and effort. Set mini goals along the way, and slowly (or quickly, depending on how much time you put in), you will reach them. Hey, one of my goals this year was to do a product collab, and I have done it (see here)!, which means it is possible. A cake takes patience, and so does a blog…
