2017 has been a great year for me in my personal life, I moved to the city, rented a 2-bed house with Mr, adopted our first doggie and got a promotion in work. 2017 with blogging and social media brought me over 1K natural followers on both Twitter & Instagram (Totally smashing my 2017 end goals) earned over £500 in paid collaborations and received so much gorgeous gifted and reviewed items that I truly do feel like I’ve achieved something this year.
I’ve got a new season of blog posts starting this year, I’ll be aiming to post a copy-cat/lookalike outfit from a blogger I admire monthly. We see copy-cat/ lookalike outfits from celebrities all the time and may even copy the style of one girl-crush ourselves in our time (my previous style inspiration was Blake Lively) but aren’t Bloggers and Influencers just as big as celebrities these days? So, I thought I’d pay homage to some of my favourite fashion bloggers and copy-cat an outfit of theirs a month. This month I kick off with the one and only Megan Ellaby, a fashion “icon” in my eyes, reading her blogs since she started back in ASOS to then moving onto vlogs I am still hooked on her content and admire her brave sense of style.
Tis the season to be jolly – Or typical of us girls, search ALL the shops for a party outfit you feel comfortable but pretty in, and that doesn’t dip into your Christmas present fund. Admit it, Christmas is a stressful time. So, I’ve decided to help you girlies out a bit by finding budget outfits for you. (Budget being £60 and under!)
I am a vegetarian, have been for as long as I can remember and I also work in an environmental control company during the day. So, I’ve begun to wonder why haven’t I taken the time or consideration to think about other aspects of my life that aren’t good for animals, the environment or us as beings. Laziness perhaps, or maybe I’m just purely un-educated on these matters. So, I decided to explore these matters more, starting with sustainable fashion, I saw a statement on Twitter by @LeighTravers when she wrote a Twitter thread on sustainable brands that had Black Friday sales – I was curious to find out more, I’d not really heard or thought about this term before.
