remember who you are

uk fashion blogger

You have forgotten who you are and so have forgotten me. Look inside yourself Simba. You are more than what you have become. You must take your place in the circle of life. Remember who you are.

Yes, I just quoted the Lion King.

We are all put on this earth for a reason. What reason that exactly is isn't always clear. Maybe that's part of the fun of life, working out your role without the world. Life is about making mistakes, learning new things and testing yourself. Sometimes things are great and sometimes things are bad. The past can hurt. But, you can either run from it or learn from it. No matter what happens, you are the most important person you will ever meet. Remember that it's not about what others think of you, your personality or appearance. Just never close your eyes to your own greatness.

London Fashion Week SS15 Day Three

Sunday's my favourite day of LFW. I don't know why, it just always feels really different from the other days. It's also the day of Topshop Unique. Which me and Zoe planned on sneaking into with our special set of blagging skills, but when I went to the desk to say my name I was actually already on the list. Despite not being sent an invite! I spoke to the PR girl and I was even on the seating plan list! Gotta love fashion week's lack of organisation! Zoe also managed to blag her way in so it was all good! We sat down and watched the hottest show of the year. I also finally got to see Cara D on the Catwalk. I know it's silly, but I really love her and have always wanted to see her walking!  The collection was kickass! Will share my snaps of this later in the week!

Today I wanted to wear something girly and cute as we were having a little brunch at The W London Hotel. I was staying there for the week because I needed a solid base in the centre of the City and their place is just AMAZING. More on that another time! My dress is from Miss Selfridge which I haven't shopped in for ages! I saw loads of things I really like, but I came out with this little prom style dress. I wanted to edge it up with a check coat and my dog tooth satchel just for a little bit extra something! This is

London Fashion Week SS15 Day 2

& other stories bag

Day Two rolled around and I knew exactly what I wanted to wear. This Topshop Gilet. It's been on my watch list even since Topshop Unique last season so when the collection launched in store it was the one item I needed. At £215 it's the most expensive thing I've bought in a VERY long time but you cant pass on how beautiful it actually is. I love the shape and just how luxe it feels and I dont know. I've had so many compliments on it I felt bad at first for spending so much but then... I LOVE IT.

I dropped off the face of the earth a little over the past few days. Well especially here on the blog! I’ve still been on constant updates on Twitter and Instagram (which you should totes follow if you haven’t already!) It’s Fashion Week if you haven’t noticed from the incessant bragging of “being frow” or getting invited to this that and the other. Yeap, Fashion Week is a braggers paradise.

For Friday I wanted something easy and relaxed as I was quite busy that day! As the Uniqlo x Lulu Guinness collection has only recently been released I thought I’d wear my new tee in celebration of the iconic designer. I love Uniqlo collars, they always seem to have something fresh and new coming through. I paired my tee with a white midi skirt. New lengths for this midi hater but surprisingly I really really like this skirt. I’m definitely converted to the longer side. Boots are from Office and I’ve had so many compliments I can’t even. They are pony skin and leather and honestly the nicest boots I’ve got in a long long time. Tres Chic. I also naughtily bought this bag from And Other Stories last week and I’m besotted so unique and just the right size for all my junk. My Kanye Coat is from River Island and I think it deserves it’s own post so I’ll save my gushing for that!

So I somehow ended up on the Daily Mail with this outfit. I think I can die happily knowing I was on the Daily Mail and it wasnt for falling on my arse coming out go a club. Weird and surreal seeing your mug on the front page and the sidebar of shame!
