I was just thinking about how far I have come in life, not just since I started blogging, but from the days where I was the girl that was picked on, who didn't really have friends because I wasn't "cool" enough to be in the it crowd and from the girl who would only wear jeans and simply horrid over sized printed tees... trust me even though this is a trend now, I was not wearing a fashionable version of it!
And here I am now planning trips to New York, hopefully Paris next year (I said hopefully). Working in Fashion, attending Fashion Week, and I have the most amazing group of friends. I've learnt that it's ok not to fit in, I've learnt it's actually better to stand out and be yourself. I've learnt that "IT" girls didn't always hang out with the cool girls in school. But the biggest lesson that I've learnt is that fashion IS for everyone, not just a select few. So anyone reading this, don't think that you can't wear this or that, or wear a trend because your plus size. Rules, in my opinion are generally made to be broken, so if you see something you like, that makes your soul fly and your heart pump with excitement, if not for anyone's sake but my own, PLEASE TRY IT ON!

I'm not even there yet, but I feel as thought I am already dressing like I am in NYC - at least in my head I am. I think I am slowly working out what to take with me, but I say this weekly, and I will probably quickly fold half my wardrobe the night before,pray and hope during my flight, that I have everything I need packed! I mean what's the worst that could happen? I might have to buy something in New York? That would be simply horrible, right?
Another amazing find by Estelle - I have seriously been trying to get into contact with their brand but no one seems to know how! Even the staff at Myer - so if anyone from Estelle is looking at this post please inbox me! There is no website that I know of and they don't seem to advertise either, which is a little annoying because you never know if there is any new stock to go an check out and I REALLY LOVE AND ADORE their pieces, they are so girlie and pretty and let's not forget incredibly well made!
These photos clearly tell me that I need a haircut, and it's happening Thursday! Before Christmas I was the girl that was in the salon every 6 weeks, but since December I have been going non-stop, and only had the chance for one chop! I'll be taking at least a cm off the length, and I think it will look much sharper! I've enjoyed having it longer..but I kind of miss my bob.
Also everyday of late I have been rocking a winged eye linger, I just love that it allows me to be so simple in the rest of make up and that it lets my eyes do all the talking. Just to let you all know my make up addiction isn't anywhere near as bad as my addiction to clothes is!
Thank you to you all for reading such a long winded, rambling post! Blogging is a wonderful process, and it can someone help cleanse the mind and spirit too!
Until Next Time xox <3
