This blog is officially closed down, but don’t be too sad, I’ve got a whole host of new posts and exciting new things waiting for you at
Hey everyone, how are we all today? Are you enjoying the somewhat warmer weather now September has rolled around?!
I’ve decided to share with you guys some little goals and resolutions I’ve decided to set myself for the rest of the year.
September always makes me want to set a few resolutions, ever since I was little I’ve felt the new school term is like a fresh start so I usually think about where I’m heading and what I want to achieve around this time of year.
Even though I’m 22 and no longer a school student, this September is no different. The start of the new University term has got me thinking about my goals in life, and how I want to live my life.
My first resolution is to lose weight. Since living away from home I’ve put on around a stone in weight. A lot of my clothes don’t fit well anymore, and my confidence is beginning to fade! I’ve heard really good things about Slimming World and so, I’m going to my first meeting on Thursday. I’ll let you all know how it goes week to week.
September is also a good time to start the pre-Christmas diet! I don’t want to look porky in all the Christmas festivities’ photos!
My second resolution is to put more effort into University. I’m paying almost £4000 a year to attend University, yet I leave almost every assignment to last minute and wonder why I aren’t coming out with firsts!! I achieve fairly well with little effort, so I’m hoping putting more effort in will mean I achieve highly.
My third and final resolution is to be less frivolous with money. I currently work part time around University and also get student loans, yet I hardly ever have any money. I largely waste my pennies on new clothes and beauty products, along with a serious dose of socialising So, I aim to not buy a single new item of clothing for the entire of September. I’ve also set myself a strict budget that I’m going to stick to just to prove to myself that there isn’t so much need for waste.
As part of this third resolution I’ve decided to set myself a little fashion blog challenge! I’m going to update every Sunday for the next four weeks with ‘My Weekly Wardrobe’. Every day I’ll take a picture of my outfit, and at the end of the week post a little lowdown, I’m going to try and wear something different everyday. I have that many clothes, even after taking three bags full to the charity shop, that I should be able to wear something different everyday for a month! It’ll certainly help me put the fun into not shopping!!!
So, those are my little resolutions. Is there a time of year which makes you rethink things? What would you like to change or do differently in your lives? I’d love to hear from you!!
Hey everyone, as promised, today I’m following up yesterdays Style Nibble quiz post with my top three picks they chose for me.
I’ve decided to start off with this gorgeous dress from Rare, I chose this to highlight just how spot on Style Nibble’s personal profile was. I have a cap sleeve dress almost identical to this from Dorothy Perkins!
Personally, I don’t think you you can go wrong with skater dresses. They are eternally flattering! The way a skater dress emphasizes or gives you curves cannot be replicated, and the flared skirt can hide perhaps your wider parts -such as your hips or legs.
The high neck on most of the skater dresses around gives a really classy, and modern look. You don’t need to show your chest to be sexy girls!
What do you all think of this dress?
Love or hate?
Also, how cute is it that they pick the item for you, and have a little write up for each one with the item name, a little tip or note on the item, the shop you can buy it in, and the price. They’re just like me!
Hey everyone, how’re we all today? Are we hungover, due to the extra night out this weekend? Or gutted because its yet another chilly August day? Well, however you’re feeling this murky Monday morning, I’ve got some hot fashion picks to cheer you up!
I love it when the new season rolls around! And to be perfectly honest, with the wash out summer we’ve had, I’ve been counting down the days until I can illegitimately wrap up in cosy dresses, cardigans and boots without crying inside because I should be in shorts and sandals!
Hey everyone, how are you all today? Hope you’re enjoying the rainy bank holiday weekend weather! It wouldn’t be the same if it wasn’t a wash out would it?!
Even though its raining, its still technically summer, so short-shorts are still a must have!
As many of you know, I’m currently studying towards a degree in Public Relations, for this I arranged some work experience over the summer in a local communications department.
Today I thought I’d give you a little low down on the experiences I’ve had.
Hey everyone, today I’m doing a quick review of this V05 Give me Texture hair powder.
I’ve never used a hair powder before but I love the results! It works by you shaking a little bit of the product in between your layers and then ‘ruffling’ it up gently with your fingers.
Hey everyone, how are we all today?
I thought I’d share with you this little purchase that has stolen my heart!!!!
Hey guys, here it is, the shiny, new, perfectly pink website!
I couldn’t be more pleased with this new chapter in the blog’s life, but I want to hear what you think too! Do you like it? Are you still going to keep reading?
As much as I loved the old ‘xoxxMelly’ it was only a temporary thing.
