You're never fully dressed without a smile.

The Shoe of the Season.

Gingham Floral mules - New Look 
Knotted Tan Leather mules - Zara 
Dusky Pink Leather mules - Topshop 
Fringed Leather Mustard mules - Topshop 
Black Pearl Slipper mules - Kurt Geiger 
Gold Metallic mules - Public Desire
Mint Green mules - Mango
Pointed Pink Leather mules - Topshop  

The shoe of the season is without a doubt Mules, they are literally EVERYWHERE right now! From high end to mega affordable, everyone can get in on a slice of the marvellous mule action. I have noticed in a lot of the shops that Spring pastel coloured mules seem to be the cream of the crop, with different shades of pink pretty much everywhere. But that's not to say classic black isn't just as stylish, or maybe a lustrous metallic is more your thing...?

There are also a lot of patterned ones, with beautiful embroidery on. The Gucci effect is still a strong influencer on the current seasonal trends with embroidery and flowers.

There are so many variations on the mule, from block heeled, slipper style, flats and statement, there really is a mule out there for everyone!

I'm not going to lie it was soooo hard to whittle the selection down to the few that I have shown as there are mules for all occasions on every website, and now I just want to own all of them to be honest...

I also need to mention my two absolute bargain pairs of Mules I picked up recently in the pictures at the top. The dusky pink ones are from non other than Primark and at the cost of £10 I am tempted to buy them in the other colours too as I know I'm going to be living in those shoes all Summer as they will literally go with anything, and will bring a welcome pop of summer colour to my outfits.

And the pointed suede nude/black dreamy Chanel dupes were from my favourite shop in the world -  ZARA. And they were reduced from £39.99 to £12.99 in the sale. I've only ever seen these shoes that one day and it was in a London Zara. I never even noticed them on the Zara website, so I do feel like I picked up an amazing purchase with those ones, and I walked out the shop feeling very smug and pleased with myself! haha. I also for one, never ever thought I'd be embracing a kitten heel... I'm not sure what's happening to me, maybe this is what happens when your not in your early 20's anymore, but I quite like this sophisticated shoe that has made its way into my collection.

I think for the perfect Spring/Summer shoe (that's not a sandal) the mule is without a doubt IT. Comfy... check? Go with pretty much everything...? Check. Don't have to break the bank to get in on the trend... Check. Effortlessly chic...? Check!

PS. Please also ignore my slightly patchy tan, it was almost time for my weekly ridiculously long, soak and scrub off all my tan so my skin is red raw, to then start again with fresh tan bath... Tanned life aint easy.

I have sooo many ideas of things I'd like to blog, and outfits and accessories. But its quite hard when I only have myself to take the photos! So here's a random assortment of some pictures I took a few weeks ago when I first got my new camera, of some of my favourite gold jewellery pieces at the moment. I know the quality isn't amazing on some of the pictures, but I quite liked how they turned out. I was just having a little play with the camera and learning the various settings. I'm not normally a fan of big bright photos but I really like the bold white one!

Jewellery is my absolute one true LOVE, and I've had so many different post ideas recently that I plan to do, as jewellery really is having a major moment right now. I'm not a big lover of silver, actually scrap that, I love silver jewellery but not so much on myself, although there are some beautiful chunky silver pieces that I have my eye on!

I love unusual jewellery, and have quite a lot of beautiful chunky, bold pieces constructed with leather and gold, but there was something so eye catching and beautiful about the Monica Vinader necklace that I loved the very first time I found them on Instagram. Since I received this as a Christmas present from my lovely boyfriend, I've literally worn it almost every single day and I know its going to be one of those rare timeless love forever pieces. It's the perfect daytime necklace to add a subtle touch of gold to an outfit, but is also perfect for the evening layered with other delicate gold necklaces, or stands out on its own with a silk vest top or a low cut ruffle top. And how beautiful is the packaging?! The necklace also has its own little dust bag inside to protect it. I am a sucker for beautifully wrapped items, and when a piece of jewellery comes in a lovely box like this, you know your onto a winner. 

I haven't posted for three weeks as its been quite hectic for me... I have unfortunately had to move back home for a little while, and the London dream is over for now... 

Circumstances change, sometimes a job isn't everything you thought it would be, and things happen in life that make you completely question everything and re-asses your priorities, change your perspective and make you realise whats important, and so I made a big decision to hand my notice in at my job in London. Which was hard for me to do, as living in London has always been my absolute dream and I was finally brave last year and did it and moved on my own to a city where I barely knew anyone and landed myself a job straight away. So to take a gamble like that was quite risky, but I know I made the right choice and do not regret my decision. 

I then spent weeks and weeks applying for TONNES of jobs within the fashion industry, I had a few interviews but sadly wasn't successful. So in the end I had no other option but to come home, and I'm lucky that I have a lovely home to come back too. The past 6 months of my life, in fact the past year of my life has been a complete whirlwind, but I wouldn't change it. I've learnt a lot in the past year about who I am as a person and where I want to be in life, and if anything, the bitterly disappointing set back of failing in London this time has made me more determined to succeed should there hopefully be a next time. 

As everyone knows London is the not the cheapest place in the world, and living there was very expensive. So a lot of my photos and blog posts won't be like other blogs where they have the latest new in items every week as I am now VERY VERY skint! (as much as I would absolutely LOVE nothing more than to be able to do this!) haha. Although I feel like I'm totally contradicting myself here, as I must admit that most of the jewellery photographed here apart from the Mawi ring and the necklace, I bought during my 5 months in London. But we do have to treat ourselves every now and again don't we... :)
