Now or Never

Wednesday, 9 November 2011


The past few days have been so relaxing. I've had total me time, I've enjoyed waking up feeling good and not in a rush to go anywhere or do anything…just be.

I've had quite a few personal issues to deal with (fear not, nothing to be overly worried about), and I was just feeling a little down and I was advised by a friend to just take a break from everything. I did, and it has been worth it. I managed to clean out my whole apartment (that's therapeutic in itself!), go shopping and spend time just reflecting on life. My head is now in the right place, and I feel I can now move forward. 

I've also been listening to Tank's "Now or Never" album, and have been tunelessly & tirelessly belting "Emergency" whenever I can haha! Love him!! 

Oh and in case you didn't notice, I've had my hair cut! Been wanting to do so since summer, and the right time finally came! It's a simple bob, but I opted to leave the hair in the front long (Just so it looks decent when I have curls in! :P). I feel I'm able to put on almost anything and the hairstyle just gels with the outfit. This one being one of them. Vintage Leather Shorts, Simple White Tee and Oversize Blazer. We can't forget the hint of Leopard print and Red (Lippy). ;)

Shorts : Vintage
Tee : Primark
Blazer : H&M
Boots : New Look
Cuff : H&M
Lippy : By Terry, Fanatic Red (203)

MotorCityMoxie said...

The new haircut looks great. It's very fitting. Also, the shorts are a good fit. Sometimes when I wear thrifted shorts, they bunch at the front. Do you have that problem with those. Are you wearing pantyhose? Either way, your legs look stunning!
