Paired My Blue Outfit with Silver and Blue Bracelets and White Chunky Ring

Accessories: Ring and Bracelets

Looking at these pictures definitely suggest that I was in a modelling mood. Look at the different poses I'm channelling here, Holy God (laughing hysterically). This is what blogging does to you, brings out the inner model in you. Do you agree?

Blue is definitely big this season and I too decided to embrace this colour, so much that I went for blue on blue look. Obviously, in different shades and texture and that's the beauty of creating a monochrome look. 

Last outfit was mainly black, this time its blue. The shades are getting lighter as I climb the colour ladder. What do you think of my blue on blue look? Is it something you would wear?

Thanksgiving Friday: What I Am Thankful For

I got home safely

I wasn't feeling well on Wednesday and while travelling back home, things got worse. I had very bad abdominal pain. I wanted to get home as soon as possible but got stuck in traffic and it took longer but i'm grateful and thankful that I made it home safely. Nothing serious happened on the bus. 

Give someone a compliment and make their day

I met an elderly lady who said: "You are so nice, I will pray for you" just for no reason. I was blushing, she totally made my day. 

It made me wonder that compliments like this don't cost money but they mean a lot and can make somebody happy. Why don't I try to do that? So I have decided that I will try my best to speak good and try and compliment people. You too should give it a try. 

I am thankful that I have a abled body

I saw an elderly gentleman who was walking alone finding his way with the help of a walking cane/walking stick. I kept staring at him and started thinking of all the things I have taken for granted. 

I have said it before and I say it again, it's the simplest things in life that matters the most and the one we take for granted. 

I am thankful for having the opportunity to be one of the person who has a normal body. You and I need to appreciate it a bit more.

Hope you all had a wonderful week. No matter how hard your life may be, always remember that there is someone out there who doesn't have food to eat or a too over their head. Be grateful and thankful for what you have, no matter how big or how small it may be.

Back To Basics: Striped T-Shirt

In the park wearing striped T-shirt and Skinny Jeans

Stripes are becoming increasingly popular and had made their way into the closet staples. The other day I went to Westfield London and couldn't believe how many people were wearing striped T-shirts, obviously styled in different ways.

Striped T-shirt from Next and Sporting a Messy Fishtail Braid

This time, I decided to pair the striped tee with skinny jeans, red belt with gold stud details and black boots with gold details.

I am forever buying clothes in black (There is a story behind it though which I may/may not tell you some other time) and then complain that my wardrobe lacks colour.

Flat Boots from Primark

White and Green Statement Ring

As most of my outfit is in neutral palette, I decide to add colour in the form of a belt and bag. 

Accessories are a great way to inject colour in to your outfit, be it a necklace, a bracelet, a scarf or a bag, they can instantly add oomph and jazz to the overall look.

Striped T-shirt, Skinny Jeans and Bag

The styling possibilities are endless. The striped t-shirt is one of those pieces which can be worn all year round and can be styled up or down depending on the occasion. 

Add a pencil skirt, black pumps and red lipstick and you are ready to rock your date night. What do you think?

Thanksgiving Friday

Thank God it's Friday. Are you ready to take on the weekend? Before I gear up, here are some of the things that I am thankful for this Thanksgiving Friday.

Enjoying Spring Blossom in the Park

Taking the time out and enjoying spring blossom. The park looks magical with all the colourful flowers. Enjoying the flower petal shower here! 

I am thankful that I am able to enjoy the simple pleasures that life has to offer.

Won the Gianmarco Lorenzi competition

As you can see from the tweet, I won tickets to the Gianmarco Lorenzi re-launch event. I covet their shoes, they are AWEOSME! Thankful for this opportunity to attend their #GMLaunch event and check the SS14 shoe collection which is on 9th April. 

Thank God I finally got my first Tripod.

I finally managed to get a tripod. I have been wanting to buy one for a very long time as some of you will know. I got the Velbon Ex-440 from John Lewis. 

If you have any tips for me, please let me know as I am very new to the concept of using the tripod to take my outfit pictures.

Still praying for MH370 crew and passengers, people of Ukraine, Chile who experienced a massive earthquake, lives lost in the US shootings and landslides and those who are injured.

Is there anything that You would like to be thankful for?

Laura has kindly agreed to share some of her "Holy Grail" items with us. Don't forget to share your holy grails items.
Holy Grail Items by Laura Jarvis Pattern Design

Hi, I'm Laura, a 20 year old from a little village in Norfolk, East Anglia. I'm a 2013 graduate from the University Campus Suffolk with a Fashion and Textiles degree and I am now looking for new and exciting opportunities whilst searching frantically for intern-ships, apprenticeships and more. I'm inspiring to be a Print Designer, as a long term career, but also have interests in Visual Merchandising and Buying which you could say is more of a short term job desire. 
I thought it might be nice to share with you my all time Holy Grail items and why. It’s always fun having a nosey into other peoples belongings and lifestyles so I hope you thoroughly enjoy!

Holy Grail Items by Laura Jarvis Print Desing

Holy Grail Items by Laura Jarvis Print Design

With working most days in the city I’m constantly on the go and the Zara mini office city bag is always the bag I use. It’s so flipping stylish and it restrains me from shoving too much junk inside. 
Its part of the basic range and it’s affordable but the best part about it is the cushioned middle pocket which is perfect for your iPad, tablet and so on. Except I don’t have one so I give my iPhone extra padded protection. The only magazine I tend to read is ASOS monthly because it gives me the low down on new items. I’m more of a picture person so I can’t be dealing with mags full of writing.

My all time favourite scent is Chloe Love and I cannot. Live. Without. It. I think it could genuinely be my signature scent forever. I don’t wear it every day because that would get pricey but if I’m not working I will be drenched in it. 
It smells like the Palma Violet sweets which are also my favourite thing ever so it kind of makes sense to why I love the scent so much. Palma Violet sweets, Palma Violet perfume, Palma Violet flavoured lip balm. Oh dear.

With my hair and skin I have to take great care. If you’re like me and have brittle hair or very dry skin then you know you constantly have to take care in keeping them nourished and moisturised. My hair gets unbelievable tangled after the shower and I was suggested Redken as a great detangle product and as soon as you put this little miracle worker into your hair it straight away becomes easy to put a brush through. I swear by this product. 
In my beauty draw, I have numerous amounts of hand cream for my poor abnormally small hands however this one from my Glossy Box seems to be my favourite because the Lavender smell is oh so relaxing and stops me going cray cray. It’s also connected to the NHS Foundation Trust which I really like.
Smash Box Photo Finish, Mac Lipstick and Bubble Gum Lip Scrub by Lush are some of the Holy Grail Items

Holy Grail Items: Mac Lipstick and Bubble Gum Lip Scrub by Lush

Finally I share with you my most used make-up items. If you don’t prime then it’s a crime. What a giggle. Smashbox is the best primer I have come across. It’s great for your skin but also your eyelids before applying eye makeup and it doesn’t crease your makeup, become oily or anything. I’ve had this for a year and I have a year still left in it, you get a great amount for the price.
Lush Lip Scrub is something no one should live without because it’s a product you can eat? I mean com’on, its sugar. The bubblegum taste is amazing and it always leaves my lips feeling totally fresh and new before applying lipstick. You will have no worries about chapped lips.  In summer, I’m constantly wearing MAC Morange because it goes beautifully with a tan but also goes great with paler skin too. It’s invincible really. If you’re looking for an in-trend lipstick this year I suggest MAC Morange or a orange coloured lipstick of some sort!
Altogether that makes my Holy Grail items and the beauty must-haves for everyone in the world. I have thoroughly enjoyed writing for you Naaj Rona, it has been a pleasure. If anybody wants to know more please just give me a shout!
