It is All within You

There are stars you haven’t seen

But they are closer than ever

There is Magic and Inspiration,

Love And Creativity

And there is more,

So much more to you

That you are just starting to express through living your dreams.

And now you finally know that

It is ALL within you; and it always was

Why a Denim Dress is timeless

 

A classic denim dress will never go out of style and it is a timeless wardrobe essential.Just like a black blazer or a trench coat, a denim dress has proved to be a classic because it never goes out of style. I personally love investing in clothes that i can wear over and over again without getting bored of the style. i always consider the longevity of what i buy and the questions to ask yourself are : 

Is this something i can wear a lot

Can i style it in several different ways 

Do i really love what i am buying 

if its a yes for all these questions you are buying something that will have staying power in your wardrobe. 

 

My favourite denim dresses are the ones with a belt around the waist , which tends to gives it a more fitted and structured appearance. Denim is so versatile, and is probably the easiest addition to a daytime wardrobe. I styled this dress with faux snake print boots and a red lip for a subtle pop of colour. 

 

The anti fur campaign : PETA

I am so happy to collaborate with @peta on the fur free Britain campaign because it brings us into awareness of how cruel the fur industry is and why we should never buy it. This campaign calls for the import of fur to be banned in the U.K. By wearing the badge and the tote I am taking a stand against animal abuse. Here are some facts about Fur :

1. Animals are skinned alive for fur. They are fully conscious and feel the pain of having their fur removed from their body. Dogs, foxes, Mink, rabbits, racoons, seals, chinchillas are just a few of the animals that are used in the fur industry.2. Fur contributes to animal abuse and exploitation.
3. Toxic chemicals are used to treat the fur of an animal. The fur industry is now ranked as one of the world’s five worst industries for toxic-metal pollution. This is very harmful for our planet
Please go on the Fur Free Britain petition page : https://secure.peta.org.uk/page/27377/petition/1 to learn more

I am voice for the voiceless because it is what is in my heart. I live my life with love and compassion and everything from what I eat and wear, and the products I use are vegan. The change starts from you. Please refrain from wearing animal skin because they need their skin.

 

Nothing can dim the light that shines from within

The power of faith brings abundance of everything in your life. Faith, is just as important as the air we breathe. While the oxygen in the air nourishes the body, faith nourishes the heart and the soul.

Faith dissolves stress, anxiety, and fear – It’s easy to allow stress, anxiety, and fear to run our lives. Those worries manifest themselves into highly-stressful situations, causing not only mental anguish, but physical problems as well.

With faith we can take control of how we feel and manifest only positive situations in our life.

‘’ What if – fear

Even if – faith ‘’

Trends : Colour Blocking

Colourblocking is a colour-mixing trend where you wear shades that are opposite on the colour wheel. This trend always makes a comeback and makes a bold and beautiful statement. Mixing opposite colours in an outfit creates interesting and complementary combinations.

But how to wear it in real life? 

I wore this pink suit co-ord with an emerald green top. I love how the vibrant green makes the outfit bold and a suit is always so classy and chic. My advice to make this look work : Keep your colours blocked, bold and only wear two colours. Colour blocking too may colours in an outfit would be too much and i would not go over board. Less is definitely more when it comes to this trend, so keep your accessories simple. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2 ways to wear faux snake print

This Autumn / Winter we have noticed snake print everywhere!

Snake print made its first appearance at the New York, London, Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks. This print is working its way into wardrobes everywhere and bloggers on instagram can’t seem to get enough of it. I usually stay away from prints because I feel the style does not last more than a season. Prints can be overwhelming, so I am showing you two very simple yet sophisticated ways to style this print.

LOOK 1 

I Styled this skirt with a white polo neck and over the knee black boots. I feel when working with prints it is best to wear a neutral colour like black or white. The beautiful flowers are by Modern Flowers.

LOOK 2 

These boots are such a statement piece to add to your wardrobe. I paired it with a black skirt and a white jumper. I kept it simple with gold oval hoop earrings and this beautiful bag from Osier studio. The key to styling prints is to keep everything else simple.

Here is some more beautiful snake print inspiration so you can see there are endless ways to wear this trend. I love the shirt dress it is effortless and so chic! I love the red lip so much, it really compliments this print.

 

 

 

Why December is a Powerful month

In order to appreciate the last three weeks of 2018, I’m using the month of December to start reflecting on what I’ve accomplished throughout the year, as well as start thinking about how I can make 2019 even better. I am setting goals for this month that will help me be my best version in both mind and body not just now but in the new year!

 

READ 20 PAGES EVERY DAY

I am currently reading : You are a badass – How to stop doubting your greatness and start living an awesome life. This is a how-to guide that helps you remove any self sabotaging beliefs you may have about yourself and create a life you love. These are the vibes I’m taking into 2019 so i love reading 20 pages of this everyday! 

The best things i have taken away from this book so far are :

  1. Appreciate how special you are 
  2. Love yourself
  3. Do things you love 

TAKE A 30-DAY WRITING CHALLENGE OF WRITING MY GOALS AND DREAMS 

Why is it so powerful to write down your goals ? It is because you send your consciousness a signal that says :

I want this, and I mean it 100 % 

Just the act of writing down your dreams and goals inspires an entirely new dimension of ideas and productivity to the powerhouse that is your subconscious mind. I have not missed even one day since the 1st December and I can say it feels really amazing. Not only is it a daily reminder to me to stay on track but it also inspires me to continue to dream big. 

Wear it like you own it by Labante

I was recently part of the Labante : Wear it LIKE YOU own it Campaign which was a way of showing my love for animals and our planet. By wearing Labante my message was to be to be the change I wish to see in the world. i personally Know the owner of the brand, Vanita she is amazing and i admire her vision so much. I always believe in collaborating with brands that I really love.

How amazing is it to think the Dawson Laptop bag is made from recycled plastic bottles. This means animals do not have to be in pain or get their skins used to make a bag anymore. It is incredible how many alternative materials can be used and this makes me so hopeful for the future of Vegan fashion.

 

The Universe loves a believer

 

The universe loves a believer. 

You must be your biggest fan. You need to believe you can do anything so that others will believe you too. The key is to be true to yourself, to be true to the very best that is in you, and to live your life consistent with your highest values and aspirations. This approach has completely changed the person i have become as a result of this attitude. I have learnt to have faith. 

Faith is about believing even when you can’t see it

More than just thinking positive, you have to put it into action. Action is the key to developing self-belief. It’s one thing to learn to think positive, but when you start acting on it, you change yourself.You are what you do, and so if you change what you do, you change what you are.

Empowering yourself is one of the best strategies for building self-belief. I use the audible app to listen to audio books that helps me learn and grow my mindset. i am also obsessed with books that motivate and inspire me. Surrounding myself with positive books and words help me believe in myself. Knowledge is power!  

A queen in GREEN

This season the velvet trend gets a colourful upgrade and my favourite is this shade of green.  

The velvet dress is your perfect pick if you want to look chic and elegant. I have styled this dress with a pair of simple black heels for a sophisticated minimalist look. 

A velvet dress is a piece to have in your wardrobe all year round. Who would’ve guessed that this fabric would become a necessary part of our wardrobe? But when you think about it, velvet is lush and beautiful. I felt like a queen wearing this dress! I also love the gold hoop earrings as a minimal addition to this look. Gold accessories really compliment this shade of green.
