i'm back!

it's been a year since i wrote on here.
i remember the day i bought those shoes in my last post. it was a weird day, but i had a great time that night celebrating a friend's birthday.

i was away, a whole year in the south of France. i had the time of my life. I loved every single day. Everything I did, everybody I met. It was an experience that shaped my world and something I would recommend to anybody that gets an opportunity to do something like that.

You only live once.

I'm back,guys!



this is the man made of letters. it's in Antibes, where I live, overlooking the ocean and the port. it's beautiful, i went there today to take photos because the sun was shining and i wasn't working.
then it got me thinking. letters. letters make words. but the same letters make millions of words, in all different languages. and one letter out of place can really change the meaning of something. yet the same letters can make up two words with completely different, or even opposite meanings. 
it's so powerful. the power of letters, the power of words, speech.

then i read a quote today, and it made sense.

'there comes a time in your life where you have to let go of all the pointless drama and the people who create it, and surround yourself with people who make you laugh so hard that you forget the bad and focus solely on the good. After all, life is too short to be anything but happy.'



Men in Uggs.

So personally I think it's quite a contraversial subject.

Some men, like Ben Afleck, can just do it. They can get away with anything, even Uggs tucked into their jeans.

But I Ben Afleck's is acceptable because they're black. It's more subtle. Normal 'tan' Uggs on men, I'm not sure about. Especially tucked in.

But I don't know, I've got mixed opinions.

What do you think?



a simple look.
loving stripes, so paired my black and white striped H&M top with some jeans and added a brown belt.
I tucked in the top for no other reason than I thought it looked better like that.
and as it was a hot day, worn simply with gold flipflops and vintage sunglasses.


loves of the moment.


Sex & The City

Louis Vuitton Speedy 30

My Estee Lauder Double Wear

SJP NYC Perfume


Loving this colour, also Abercrombie hoodies.

Christian Louboutin's red soles.

Just a few of the things that I'm loving at the moment. Some of them are way too far-fetched for me, the Louis Vuitton bag, the Louboutin shoes. 
But I'm enjoying dreaming about them anyway.

The Topshop top is gorgeous and really want it, just a bit difficult as I'm in the South of France and seems that the nearest Topshop is quite far away, but no harm in looking.

love love.


a little find.

Image 4 - ASOS - Top confort boutonné devant

i've just found this top on asos, and i really love this look. it's so simple yet looks good.
i think i'd pair it up with my River Island boots and add a few accessories - probably a necklace and definitely some bracelets.

only thing is i hate how things never look the same on me as they do on the models...



My last day at home before I moved to France.

I spent it with my boyfriend at the lake near my house.

My look:
Grey Skirt - H&M
Black Top - Topshop
Cardigan - Vintage
Scarf - Vintage (J. D'Ormont, Paris)
Sunglasses - New Look
Boots - A Coté, Paris


my specials.x

I'm back. I have started another blog about my year abroad because my uni asked me to, but i didn't want to put them both together because this one is for me, that one is for my family / friends / uni to read. they don't care about my boyfriend and my emotions or what i'm wearing today or anything.
so that's why i've hardly posted anything in forever!
well, i'm back. i hope. i miss blogging about girly things. instead i am writing about food and sunshine. which okay, i love. but it's nothing like handbags and blusher, or shoes or necklaces. or boys.

so, here goes.
my best friend and her boyfriend have just broken up and it's made me really sad. they were so happy and such a gorgeous couple from the outside. but she said she didn't feel it, so what can you do? it has made me think so much, about friendships and other relationships in general.
one thing i've found recently, this year especially, is that too many people are far too wrapped up in their own lives to care about things that are happening in yours. and that makes me question my friendships. i have so much fun when i'm with my girls, all the time we laugh we have so much fun. but then there's the question of, who's there for me when i need them?
i know who's there for me.

i haven't had an easy time this past year, i've lost three people close to my heart. two grandads and a friend. it has been a rollercoaster, but ultimately i have friends and a boyfriend who help me through. they help me smile and change my train of thoughts when i start to get down.
everybody should have somebody like that, somebody they can lean on and a shoulder to cry on. somebody to make them smile even when they're really low.
i am so thankful for the special ones in my life, always there for me whenever i need somebody.
even now, when i'm across the ocean, in a different country.

sorry for being so deep. sometimes i, just like everybody else, get a bit emotional and find it so easy just to write what i'm thinking and voila. that's exactly what this post is. a mix of everything, a little bit of waffle and a lot of emotions.
