Coping with Grief, Loss & Disappointment (Reflecting on 2018)

For a long time, the title of the post was saved in draft as ‘Fuck 2018’. Not very original. But it pretty much summed up my 2018. Or how I felt through most of it. Every year usually has its fair share of challenges, trials and triumphant moments. But this year took the cake. My morale has experienced an all-time low. Never have I been told ‘no’; had applications declined, requests denied, plans failed, payments rejected…as much as I have this year.

OOTD: SAVONA ON THE BEACH

I haven’t graced a swimsuit since I was blessed with a ‘mum bod.’ But thank you Cosabella for helping me get out of my comfort zone. They sent me some of the prettiest swimwear and lingerie. I especially loved this Savona Floral Bralette and matching Savona Lowrider Hot Pants by Cosabella. Sooooo very pretty! In love with the floral colourful and feminine design. I had lots of people asking where I got the set from 🙂

The good news is I have a 10% OFF Site Wide Discount Code!! Use code: LYDIA10 to get 10% off site wide. Expires Dec 31st 2018.

Shop The Trend: Big & Bold Buttons Are In!

Big and bold buttons are trending and I’m here for it. This season, the once usually hidden accessory is taking the front seat when it comes to embellishments on garments. Brands are getting more daring with buttons. Introducing them in new textures, colours, shapes, and sizes. I’ve curated some of my favourite button-embellished pieces off the high street with direct links to buy. What button up pieces are you crushing on this season?

var e, p = /^http:/.test(d.location) ? ‘http’ : ‘https’;

Dirty Martinis in Stradivarius

By Posted on 0 973

I was invited by a blogger friend to Dirty Martini’s Birmingham launch of their bottomless birdcage brunch and it was epic! Everything was absolutely so tasty. I could barely speak, all I mutter the whole time was YUM, YUM, YUM!

Bank Holiday Treat Wishlist

By Posted on 0 858

It’s my favourite kinda weekend – bank holiday weekend, yay! Even though I’ve been trying to be good with my shopping habits this year, bank holiday is always a good excuse to give myself a treat 😉 Who else has a never-ending list of items saved in their ‘favourites’ on every website they visit? I do! Here are a few pieces from my wishlist that I’m currently coveting. Of course, I can’t afford all of them but I’ll be snagging one or two of these…
