cookieOptions = {...}; secondhand rose: 143/ NO COMPROMISES

Wednesday, 27 July 2016


I'm not going to address my absence from this blog this time around other to say this; life is hectic. Life doesn't stop for anyone. Just when you think things couldn't possibly get worse, life finds away to bring you down lower. These past two months have been extremely difficult for me. But there's a light at the end of the tunnel. Things are getting better and my life is starting to come back together piece by piece. I've learned so much within these past couple of months. Some things (a lot of things) happened that I didn't want to face. I wanted to hide, and a lot of the time I did just that. People will tell you to face your problems head on and to never give up, but sometimes you just need a break. Sometimes you need a few hours (or days, or weeks, or months) to just gather your thoughts and come up with a comeback plan. And I've done just that.

Step one? Devote more time to my blog.

I really do love this thing, even though I keep neglecting it. I can't promise that this time will be different because unfortunately life does happen, but I'm trying my best.

Step two? Look killer. At all times. No compromises.

Everybody is different but I find that I'm happier when I'm dressed up. Clothes and makeup affect my mood more than I'd like to admit. My own personal movement right now is dressing up as a form of self care. There have been days where I haven't had the energy to keep this trend up, but once again, I'm trying my best.

I love the outfit posted below. The colours and fit of the skirt make me so happy. Whenever I wear it my attitude is instantly lifted. I receive so many compliments when I wear it, which is never a bad thing, and it is a great piece to wear on those days where it's just way too hot. The Kate Spade bag pictured below also gives me a lot of joy. I received it as a (very thoughtful) gift and I love how eye-catching the colour is; it flows beautifully with the skirt as well. The Topshop heels are a new purchase, and although I'm not able to wear them out and about yet due to my ankle injuries, I've been strutting around at home in them. I can't wait for the day that I'm able to show them off in public.

My personal style is never constant. One day I'll be head to toe black in a very minimalist and chic ensemble, the next I'll be rocking the hell out of a neon skirt like the one pictured below. Fashion, to me anyway, is best when it is unexpected and when it breaks all of the rules. My pledge to myself is to keep the content rolling on this blog and to further document my adventures in fashion. I hope that you all continue on this journey with me. See you all in a couple of days with a new post!
