I love shoes. In fact, I spend more time than is healthy browsing online shoe sales. I love how big a choice there is when it comes to styles. One of the most versatile shoe styles is of course Brogues. Brogues are a strong leather shoe with decorative perforations along the visible edges.

  • They are very easy to adapt from a casual to a smart outfit.
  • Suitable for all style seasons.
  • comfortable and yet sturdy.
  • Not just for men, they are a staple piece of your wardrobe.
  • Perfect for lunch with friends or an androgynous even look if you're feeling more edgy.
  • They are a reoccurring timeless fashion.
  • They look great in shoe or boot form.
  • They commonly have steel caps in four different styles so even ideal for most workplaces.
  • They really are an investment piece
  • They are incredibly hard-wearing and easy to maintain.

Well if that hasn't encouraged you to take the plunge and purchase a pair, then I don't know what will! 

I would love to know, How would you wear yours? My personal favourite look is with a skirt or dress to show them off.

Review: nspa Skin Glow Mud Mask & Brightening Day Cream

Sunday, January 24, 2016

In the past I have dabbled with cheap face masks for pamper nights but I have never used a proper face mask specifically for the benefit of my skin. I wasn't blessed with flawless skin. Some parts are very dry and look worse when I apply make up and I have very oily skin on my nose/cheeks/chin. It doesn't help that I tend to neglect it a bit and never stick to skincare regimes for long.

Where Have I Been?

Monday, January 18, 2016

Well I have not exactly been pro-active with blogging so far this year but it is for a good reason! I feel better than I have in months. I have spent the past few weeks sorting through pretty much everything in my life with the aim of surrounding myself with things that make me happy.

Gracie: Stagecoach Theatre Arts School

Friday, January 08, 2016

With Gracie having a wobbly few months at school and struggling with her confidence in a class full of big personalities, we got to see her finally enjoying school in her last two weeks before Christmas. Preparing for their class Christmas concert was a big confidence boost for her. She was chosen for a speaking part as a narrator which she was so happy with. She practised her lines every single day both at school and at home and watching her perform on the day made me so proud.
