Gotta just learn to surf

Friday, 6 March 2015

No this blog post does not have anything to do with surfing. But I found a quote earlier saying "You can't stop the waves but you can learn to surf". Which is definitely a life motto to carry through. There will always be waves in life, big or little, that have a positive of negative affect on you. But you gotta learn to surf them. Even if you seem really crap to start with and you fall of your board all the time and can't really stand up a lot, with practice you're bound to get better and you can surf even the biggest of waves. Of course there are always going to be waves too big for you to surf and they'll knock you down but you can't let them drown you, you just get back on and keep going. Sometimes they hit you from somewhere you least expect and completely knock you sideways but again, just keep going.
I'm dong deep talks tonight guys. Some profound things randomly spill out of my brain when I'm very tired and slightly emotional (which is pretty much all the time at the moment I must say), maybe I should put that to use somewhere, not quite sure where I would though.
Today I am sharing another outfit post, I was going to do a youtube video but I soon realised how complicated what I was trying to do was and I gave up and got frustrated. I'll try something different and simple soon. I do have one video filmed which I will edit and upload soon, when I have the courage to (that's more deep talks). I definitely want to do the whole youtube thing but I might just leave the beauty and fashion out of that to start with and do something different with it, because I want to be more than just fashion and photography because I am interested in more than just that. But I'll let you know more about that when I do that.

Choker c/o Esty Lingerie// Dress - Loving Youth @ Topshop// Shirt - Missguided// Boots - Primark// Tights -  Ali Express// 

You may have noticed that I'm wearing this super cool choker from Esty Lingerie. What makes it even more super cool it that it attaches to your bra, and you can change the side with sliders (similar to bra straps). So unlike a lot of my chokers it fits perfectly! And it stays in place and it looks uber cool I think. Esty do lots of other cool chokers and harnesses and stuff so I may have to invest in some stuff as a reward for exams and stuff. It's really good quality and really affordable too so what's nt to love. Ok this is sounding like an avert now but I genuinely do love it and think these things.
Can you guys tell what my favourite colour to wear is yet?
I sometimes feel a bit like a glorified baby in this pinafore dungaree dress thing. I mean I love it but something about it makes me feel like I'm dressed like a five year old. It was super embarrassing when I went to take these photos though because I managed to walk for a full ten minutes before realising the skirt of this dress was above my butt... luckily I was wearing a long coat that prevented me flashing my underwear to passers by.
Also i love these tights, they make me feel like I have the nights sky on my legs. My friend Anna bought them and unfortunately for her they didn't fit her so now they're mine. Happy times.
Anyways I hope you guys are having a good week and I shall see you again soon.

Thanks for reading!

    Love your hair and style x

  8. I have to say, you're so brave doing the whole youtube thing - the whole thing terrifies me, it seems so daunting! But you're doing an awesome job so you've just gotta keep your head up and keep swimming (.../surfing, ahah :P)

    I love this outfit - the colours and the texture and everything is just so right! But that's always the case with your outfits ^.^
