The Girl Who Quit Social Media | My Thoughts

You would have to be living in a cave to have not heard of Essena O’ Neill today. She is the Girl Who Quit Social Media. The Instagram Model publicly quit the popular site today claiming ‘It’s not real life’. I had a few thoughts and the matter and i hope you all do too. Today the 19 year old deleted thousands of photos from her account. She edited the captions on others in a ‘tell all’ of the real stories behind each image. Essena has been praised for standing up against this so-called idyllic lifestyle. One where everything appears perfect and that is something to strive for. It is important to have hope and to always strive for the best.…

So it’s October. Or Moctober as i have been calling it. The weather has been mentally mild but hey i shouldn’t complain, that would be so Irish of me. The leaves are turning those gorgeous Autumnal shades and blanketing the ground like an Instagramers dream. Admittedly i have been so cold this last week.

The A-line shape and pleats will be so flattering on. The stripe print with it’s blurred lines is really modern. I feel this skirt with a dressy top would be great for a special occasion. Equally works with a tee and tough accessories. I think this is a skirt that will work next season and the one…

Fifty Friday | Snake Print

This weeks Fifty Friday theme is focused on snake print footwear. The reptile print has been becoming more and more prominent of late. An easy and chic way to tap into this trend is with shoes. Whether it is day to day or a big night out there is a look here. Again this week all but one outfit came out over budget, but hey that’s me all over. Navy, grey, mustard and wine all made great bases to add the print to. As the print itself can be a bit much, keeping it simple with a rich toned base is always a winning rule. An easy way of adding texture to an outfit too ♡ Stylish comfy casual.  The navy base…
