How to get your blogging mojo back?

Hello all!

Its been a while since I've even looked at this blog let alone written any articles on here!

I kind of fell out with blogging. Why?

I started writing for various sites which I loved but found I was being controlled by what I was being allowed to write. This may be controversial but I found that the more popular by blog became and I was being sent to review new restaurants or shops or being sent products to review my writing was checked and sometimes amended before I was allowed to publish. I started this blog because I loved writing but I found my writing and creativeness (if that's a word) was being crushed.

I didn't want to use or wear something that wasn't my style and wasn't me just to get more followers. So I stopped and took a (very long) break.

So, whats been happening since my last post? To be honest I cant even remember when my last post was it was so long ago!

I still love my fashion, particularly vintage fashion. My collection of vintage dresses grows and grows.

My son is now 9!! How did he get that old? Hard to believe I will be a mum to a teenager in no time!

I got engaged! To my wonderful, supportive and understanding boyfriend. No dates set yet but that doesn't stop me looking at wedding dresses does it?

I still live in Sheffield and I still love this city. 💕💕💕

This is me, and what I look like now just in case you forgot.

That's it for me now. But I'll be back and will write more regularly. I already have loads of ideas whirling around. 

See you all soon.

My Woman of the Month- Leith Clark

Every month I wil pay homage to woman I admire. This month is Leith Clark.

"I like dresses that look like cakes"

Who doesnt?

Wearer of some of the most amazing dresses, super stylist and editor of one of the most beautifully put together magazines around Leith Clark is definately someone I look upto and admire.

She also kick started my current obsession with Orla Keily after styling their recent LFW presentation.

Some of Leith's amazing styling work:

Here are some fab links if you want to learn more about the wonderful world of Leith:

Mood Board

Do you ever go to bed at night with a fab outfit idea in your head? Only to then wake up late with 20 minutes to get ready and all those wonderful, inspired ideas go out the window.

This is what happens to be on pretty much a daily basis. So Ive decided to start a little mood board on my bedroom wall to give my inspiration on cold winters mornings at 6am!

I thought I'd share with you a few pictures that will be featuring....

You will notice dresses feature quite heavily here! I'm really am a dress girl, Ive tried the jeans and trousers look but I just don't think I have the right shape legs for them (thanks for the short legs Dad!)

Lets see if the mood board idea works. I'll keep you informed.

The Oscars - Best Dressed.

 Dress of the night for me was Amy Adams in Oscar de la Renta

 Ginnifer Goodwin

 Jennifer Lawrence looking stunning Dior Haute Couture

 Kate Bosworth

 Sally Field in an amazing Valentino gown. Stunning

Solange Knowles

Im no film fan so the only thing I really get excited about it the dresses.

Amy Adams looked absolutely stunning in her Oscar de la Renta gown, I think if your going to an event like the Oscars you should go all out like she has. When else are you ever going to get the opportunity to wear an amazing dress like this?

Sally Field was also one of my real favorites. I have a real thing for red dresses and loved the classic beauty of this dress.

Orla Kiely @ LFW

So London Fashion week has been and gone in a flash of celeb spotting, Cara taking over the world and beautiful clothes.

My favourite of the whole week has to be the Orla Kiely presentation.

I want to be an Orla Keily girl, with my pretty 60's inspired dresses and messy beehives. Its got me hunting on ebay and vintage shopping. Perfect in every way.
