Fashion Edit: Fashion With An Edge

I remember back when I was in Year 11, I always envisioned in my head showing up to a party in a killer outfit that no one had ever seen before, walking in on one of my favourite songs and being the show stopper for that night. 

This dream was great however I could never find that killer outfit that no one had ever seen before. 

Fast forward to today and the internet has given us the ability to shop like we've never shopped before. 

And surprise surprise, I've found my killer outfits however I'm about 5 years too late. 

But oh well. 

For those of you out there who are searching for an outfit that allows you to stand out from the crowd and quite possibly will recreate the dream I had in Year 11, then is the ultimate show stopper heaven. 

Their clothes are amazing. 

Every piece is styled with such edge and perfection.

So before you go any further be sure to check out a preview of some of my favourites off their site down below and head over to their website: (I've even hyperlinked it for you so you can just click away)

Work Edit: The Importance Of Goal Setting

Feel like you're not achieving the things you want to? 

Or feel like you want to push yourself further and achieve what you've always wanted? 

Goal setting is a great way to get onto the path of success 

Every morning I wake up to a to-do list. 

I ensure that I write it the night before and tailor it to the day ahead e.g. If I'm working 6am-2pm the next day and the one after, I know that I have to tailor the list to my bed time for that night. 

Putting too much on your list in the early days may cause you to become flustered and may lead to you abandoning the list idea altogether. 

So start with 5 things you need to do and you can always add more onto your list throughout the day as you cross others off. 

Goal setting, whether it be short term or long term, is extremely important. 

It allows you to work towards what you want to achieve and enables you to stay disciplined. 

So if you tend to fall off track, try writing a simple to-do its and start small and just add on as you start to become more used to doing more and more. 

Working towards your goal is the best way to achieve it. It also allows you to develop discipline. 

And once you have disciple in one area of your life, it tends to feed into others

So before you give up, try taking baby steps.

No perfectly shot goal came without years of hard work & discipline.

You've got this! 


P.S. Here's an example of my to-do list. Most items have been crossed off as I've completed a lot already! 
P.P.S. Ignore how crabby and messy it looks. I find hand written lists the best!

Hair Edit: Elegant Christmas Looks

Picture this. 

It's Christmas Eve and you find out that the Vogue editor in chief will be at your Christmas Lunch tomorrow. 

This completely throws you. 

"How do I do my hair?" you say to yourself as you run around the room like a headless chicken. 

Well look no further.

I've compiled a look book of some killer elegant Christmas hair looks that you can use to transform your mop into hair fit for the Queen. 

In all honesty though, regardless of whether the Vogue editor in chief will be at your Christmas Lunch, these hair looks are perfect for an elegant Christmas Day.
